We’ll Regret This

Filed under: Marriage,Personal,Pictures — Neil @ 7:00 am

Last night around 10:00 we opted to go to Waffle House for a late night snack.  Amanda posted this as her status on facebook:

Thankfully, my annual physical isn’t for another 11 months.

Hot Dog

This afternoon Roscoe got of his bed (rare occasion in that it didn’t involve food) & made his way to the fireplace.  He’d warm himself on 1 side & then turn & warm his other side.  Last night he was shivering laying in his bed (our house was 67 degrees).  Amanda covered him w/ a beach towel.

Christmas Sweaters

Filed under: Pictures,Youth Ministry — Neil @ 11:24 pm

We promoted tonight as Christmas Sweater Night @ Student Worship.  It worked.  I’d guess that 60-70% of our crowd wore Christmas sweaters & it helped to create some excitement in what is typically a low attendance time of the year.

Louis gets an assist in helping me find my Santa sweater & Amanda gets credit for the jacket (sweatshirt she split down the middle & trimmed it w/ a feather boa; too bad I didn’t get a picture of its back) If you’d like to see more pictures visit our facebook page.

Bike Ride

Filed under: Personal,Pictures — Neil @ 8:54 pm

I haven’t ridden outdoors in years, but I’m trying it out again.  Last year after my hip surgery the doc suggested that I find another excercise hobby other than running long distances.

On Friday I traveled about 9 miles on the Natchez Trace.  It was a nice easy journey & it  made me want to bike more often.

Tonight, we had plans to eat at my in-laws for supper.  I opted to travel by bike.  It’s about 19 miles.  I made it in about an 1.5 hours.  It felt good to accomplish a longer distance, but if I can walk in the morning I’ll be surprised.

I’m riding a bike I bought in ’97 or ’98 when I worked at Lake Forest Ranch.  The bike is in good shape, but it’s designed for the trails I was riding at Lake Forest & not roads.  If I keep riding I’m going to have to invest some $ in a new bike (w/ a softer seat!).  Here’s a few pictures from my ride today.

Beulah Memorial Baptist Church. I served there for 4 years during & after college.

Road Hazard! There used to be a road/bridge here. Thankfully, I was able to make my way through it w/out having to back track.
