Green Chilli's

Ok folks I don't know about where ya'll live but back in the South our cheeseburgers come the old fashioned way....meat, cheese, pickles, onions, mustard and ketchup between two buns.

Needless to say I was surprised to see on the menu at McDonalds a double cheeseburger with green chilli's. Well being the adventuresome type I thought what the heck, i'll try it! Well after eating them pretty regularly (read that every day), I am totally addicted. Trying to figure out if I whine enough they'll get them at the McD's back home. Probably not!

Wonder if I can figure out how to do it at home? May have to take some practice at home. Anyone got any suggestions? Help a brother out!

Carlsbad Caverns

Feet Down: 750
Miles Walked: 2.5
Cold Dr Pepper: $2.50
Time with Jay: Priceless
Went to the caves at Carlsbad the other day. Had a great time. It's really amazing what time and water can do to rock. We stayed 'til dark and watched the bats come out. The ranger that gave us the information on the bats said that they numbered between two hundred and five hundred thousand. For about thirty minutes they poured out of the entrance to the caves.
I have really enjoyed the month that Jay has spent here with me in Roswell. I know that he has been bored. But have been trying to arrange things to do when I'm off. I think he's missing his truck and friends. One more week and then we are packing and heading east. Plan on being home next Thursday.
Peace and Love. Drop me a comment and say HI!

Missing Sunshine!!

Hey, have been thinking a lot lately. As if thats a surprise right? I really miss the Trauma thing. Yeah had a lot of complaints about some things there, but I really miss it. Loved the pace of it, and the not really knowing what was gonna be coming in next. Am hoping that after I finish this next travel assignment I will be in a shape financially that I can maybe go back there and work. If they will have me.

seems of late I have been seeing the sun rise, but I've been missing the beauty of the sunshine. Sometimes you need to see more of the sunshine to get life into perspective. I guess the realization that no matter how bad things may seem, the sun is going to rise and give you a new day to start over. I have decided to see more sunshine in my life and less of the darkness that has clouded life of late.
I think that is why I like the tattoo on my leg so much. The cross symbolizes faith. The cross is encircled in a never ending celtic knot, symbolizing to me that faith is never ending. And the sun backing it shows that in faith there is always a new beginning to life. I love that I always carry with me a reminder of the sunshine in my life. The day may be dark and gloomy, but I carry a reminder that everyday is a new beginning and the sunshine will return if you have faith.

Lifes many turns..

Yeah, you know how you make wrong turns in life. Sometimes you are able to reverse course and go back the right way. And sometimes you just have to find a new course. I am now charting a course towards being financially solvent. I want to be able to enjoy this childs life as much as possible. I wasn't really able to do that with Jay, but I plan on doing better at that with this new child coming on.
It's been said that it's never too late to be the person you wanted to be. Well, I'm gonna be that person whatever I have to do. I plan on being a better father, son, uncle, brother, and when the time comes, a better boyfriend/husband. It's time to get my priorities straight and start on that better course for my life.

Amazing how something great can be turned into something bad. One does something in an effort to help himself out and all he does is catch grief about it. I just don't understand how someone can say they love you in one breath and then cast all kind of accusations in another.
Spend hours screaming at you, and then don't understand why you don't feel all romantic. I for one just don't work that way. It's amazing how love can be stabbed repeatedly thru the heart and still keep coming back for more. But some would say that KARMA is like that. Guess paybacks are a bitch aren't they?
Trying to get my financial life straightened out. Looking to do another travel assignment, then back to Memphis for the birth of my child. Then probably try to do another travel trip. Something close to Memphis. Hopefully will be financially solvent by then and able to slow my life down.
Well folks, if you want, hit the comment button down at the end of this post and drop me a line. Could use a little pick me up. BRING THE PAIN!

Tuff Hedeman

You may wonder why I have a picture of Tuff Hedeman on my blog. I work with his sister. She says he was a puss when he was a kid. Said she beat him up alot. I don't know about that, but I do know that it takes a real man to get on top of a pissed off bull. And hang on for eight seconds. But anyway Jane got me an autographed picture. Or at least she said its signed by him. LOL!
We went to the rodeo at Capitan the other day. No Tuff wasn't there, but we did see a pretty good rodeo. Had a good time. It's one thing to see it on TV but live is totally different. Would like to see one again.
Well drop me a line. Say HI!

Big Let Down

Well seems that my debt to income ratio can't be overcome. The bank says that I just have too many bills as it is to afford a house right now. Even with my folks helping out, it just won't be do-able. So now i'm between a rock and a hard spot. Do I head back home the first of August and take the job in Jonesboro and rent a place. Of course making less money. Which means that I'll have to work more just to pay the bills I got. Or do I do another travel assignment and work my tail off for thirteen weeks and try to pay off some stuff? Which in the long run would be better.
So what am I to do? Hell I don't know. Wish I was a kid again and had mom and dad to make all my decisions for me. Of course just being a brainless automation sounds pretty good too. Don't really have to think for myself, just let someone else do it for me. point me in the right direction and let me know just what it is that I need to do.
Anyone got any suggestions. Someone point me in the right direction. 'cause of late all my choices and dreams have turned to dust. Hope your life is going better than mine. Later.
If any of my friends from THE MED are reading this, please drop a line and say HI.

Well folks,went to the Alienfest here in Roswell. Maybe because it was early on the first day I don't know, but it was not that interesting. Went thru the vendors area and got a few things. I think that the rest of the week was pretty good for them. I know there were a lot of cars in town.

Not really much happening right now. Just trying to finish out the contract and see if the bank is gonna let me get the house. Need to know something pretty soon. Got lots of stuff yet to do.

Well drop a line and say HI. Peace!
