Where were we? Oh yes, if you recall, at the end of Part II, our heroes were finishing up from a long day of hurricane cleanup in the small town of Ingleside Texas. The work had gone well besides a close encounter with a crowbar and getting dumped on by hurricane water and cockroaches. Crazy, … Continue reading Part III – There and Back Again: The Desolation of Bobcat
2016 was a big year full of changes: new school, new state, and new socks.

If you were hoping for a physical Christmas card to decorate your fridge … Continue reading 2016 Year-End Review
I have made up SO many stories since being in Thailand. I have had to get out of situations more difficult than getting out of a relationship with an obsessive girlfriend (not something I know about firsthand, just making an assumption). Many of these situations would have left me in circumstances such as (but not … Continue reading Thailand – Amazing, Yet Problematic for the Alone, Weak-Willed, and Trusting (Part 2)
It wasn’t until I started writing this entry that I realized how massive it is. And no one wants to spend their day reading a novel with limited pictures (unless it’s Harry Potter for the umpteenth time). So I gone the way of Hollywood and turned this into a two-part event. Except you’ll only have … Continue reading Thailand – Amazing, Yet Problematic for the Alone, Weak-Willed, and Trusting (Part 1)

I did the rotational thing most parents do with their kids as they sign them up for every seasonal sport to find out which one they excel at (for me, it was none of … Continue reading Go My Favorite Sports Team!
A few years ago, I was working in the psych unit at the hospital on Valentines night. The older patient whose room I was in began to ask me a series of questions:“Young man, shouldn't you be at home with your wife tonight?”“Um, no ma’am I’m not married.” I responded.“Don’t you have a … Continue reading Another Year in the Lonely Hearts Club, Thanks for the Reminder
Disclaimer: Wearing pants is my own personal choice. I don’t wish to impose my lifestyle on those around me. This is me and it’s who I am! Many people have never asked me why I wear pants. Is it because if I didn’t, people would think lustful thoughts after me? Probably not. Actually, most … Continue reading Why I Choose to Wear Pants
