I have taken a hiaties as you can see...but it seems like ever since I got my new I phone..I dont get on the computer much at all. But I also dont get on the internet on my phone...I guess there is just to many other fun things to do on my phone.
Oh yeah...did I tell you I got a new phone?  Its a 32 gig Iphone ...super fast...and super cool.
 I absolutely love it.
I am trying to think of what else is new in my life ...nope....not a whole lot. Oh...Taylor is coming home this week...Yippeeee...I am seriously excited to see her. She has been gone  since January and this is the longest she has ever been away from us. We do use skype and now we use facetime on our Iphones...but until they come up with a way to hug each other over the will never be the same as being there. So I am super stoked about just being able to give her a big hug.

Other things
Garden is coming along nicely
Work sucks
I still love my dogs
I still love my wife
Im feeling bad now that I just wrote "I love my dogs" before I wrote "I love my wife"
Was golfing in a charity benefit and this fox comes out of the woods and just stares at us.
I love watching the Humming birds at the feeder
Sold my motorcycle on craigslist in 3 days
I am happy that the lawn is turning brown so it wont grow as fast.
I blew today off from work and am really going to enjoy it.

The title of this blog is a shout out to my late mother....I remember she used to be on the phone talking when I was young and right near the end of the conversation she would say "and things so".
So now whenever i hear it I think of her. :)

New Stuff

I smashed my finger
Planted a garden
Seen some long lost cousins
watched my first soccer game
I shot a Snapper Turtle
I have a new grill

All that within a weeks time.....

I opened the tailgate to unload my new grill after we used it at Timbers walk....and since my trailer was still attached to my truck....the tailgate landed on my finger and the crank for the trailer. I haven't experienced that kind of pain since I broke my ankle in high school jumping off the bleachers trying to dunk a basketball. I may have deserved that one...but I didn't do anything to deserve a blue made me wonder what it would have felt like if the finger would have been cut off....I couldn't have hurt any worse. I was told that I will lose my fingernail...and I think they are gross. :(  I would have gave you a picture but I figured you may want to eat again in the future.)

Kim and I planted a garden this year....this is a first for us. There was a couple things I learned during this process. The first thing was that it is expensive to put in a garden...the second thing was that if I wasn't a "go big or go home" kind of wouldn't have been so expensive. I have no idea why I am like that. But it seems I just cant do anything the cheap way. I couldn't buy straw for mulch...I have to by regular stuff that is 100 times more expensive because it looks nicer. (like I have alot of people over that are going to view it...not) But in my does look nice. I cant wait to reap the harvest. :)

Went and saw my first soccer game ever.(I really need to get out more I know) My niece was playing in the district finals for her high school. And I could not have picked a better game to be my first one. The ended up winning in double overtime. The scored with 4 seconds left on the clock to put them in double OT. It was an incredible adrenaline rush. and from what I am told...the games are usually not that I am not sure if i want to see another one....quit while I'm ahead I think. But it gave me great joy to see the kids rejoice in their success.

I also went to an open house after the game. It was my cousins daughter and I just hardly ever see these her and her family for some reason. Now that I think about it...I don't see any of them because I don't ever go to any family reunions.(and one lives in California) I wish I had more opportunity to spend more time with them  because they are alot of fun. I could see myself having a really good time with them. They are just "Good people" if you know what I mean. One of them had 2 puggles so you know they are good people if they own a puggle. :)   (I couldn't resist putting in this pic)

And finally the grill....the grand master of grills...the kind of grill I have always wanted. The kind that cooks evenly and doesn't char food beyond recognition. wasn't in the budget but I ended up with one because we needed one for the Lupus walk to cook hotdogs...and mister "Go Big or go home" had to have one that was going to make people want to eat a hot dog off from this thing. The guy who cooked the hotdogs even wanted to buy one when the walk was over. and I must tell seems to cook everything really good. I cooked some bratwursts and it was the first time that I was able to take them off from the grill and not have to apologize for. It makes me look good :)

I didn't shoot him dead...I took a picture of him...he crawled up from the swamp into my neighbors yard so I couldn't resist taking a few pics.

So I have been a busy bee lately. I am looking forward to a great summer and a good harvest,
