Weekly Blogger's Poll

I got a brainstorm this week, so I'm going to try it and see how it goes. My idea is to start a weekly poll for bloggers. I'll try to come up with a new poll each week around Friday or Saturday. Feel free to post your thoughts; It should be interesting to see the different responses. This weeks poll: who do you think will win nomination for the Democrats, Republicans, and which of those two will become our next president? My prediction is Obama for the Democrats and Rudy for the Republicans, with Rudy winning.

Praise the Lord!

We finished our Spring revival this past Sunday with a real answer to prayer. Jeremy Fuller was our evangelist (he did a great job all week), and Sunday morning he preached an awesome message on God's grace. At the end of his sermon, both the parents of one of our bus kids went forward and they both prayed to get saved! What is so special about it is the fact that Katie, the mother, professed to be a Buddhist. Please pray for Duane and Katie as they start their new walk with God. They have a lot of issues to work through, but God is able to keep working miracles in their lives.

Escape Artist

My dog Chance (a cross between a black lab and a rottweiler) is becoming quite the escape artist. This past Monday is a good example. Our neighbor boy came over shortly after I left for work and told Missy that they had received several phone calls from people wondering if one of their dogs was loose. From the description the callers gave he guessed that it was Chance. He said that Chance had last been seen about a mile from our house, running down a main road. Missy had to take our jeep and go try to find him. She finally did; he was running right down the middle of the highway. She was able to pull off the road and get him into the back of the jeep, which is when the real fun started. Chance was very wet and muddy (it had just rained, and we have been having a lot of melting snow). Everyone knows what a wet dog does; yes, he thoroughly shook himself, spraying muddy water all over the back of the jeep. Then he decided to jump into the back seat, since nobody was there to stop him. To top it all off, he jumped into the front seat as soon as Missy got home. Needless to say, I was pretty frustrated with Chance that night as I tried to clean the jeep up. I still like him though.

California Brilliance

I heard a really good one on the news this week. Some city out in California is having a problem with an overpopulation of squirrels. Their solution: catch as many squirrels as they can, give them an injection to keep them from reproducing, and then turning them loose again. I'm thinking about moving out there so that my tax dollars can go toward this brilliant project.

Any Advice?

Can anyone give me any advice? My mother-in-law has told me that she will never again bake me an apple pie unless I promise to never give her anther "wet willy." I have never believed that it is right to give in to blackmail, but she makes a killer apple pie. I do have to be careful, because she could beat me to a pulp (you can see her bulging muscles in the tug-a-war picture). Any suggestions?

Getting There

I think that I am actually getting the hang of blogging. I worked a while this evening on setting the blog up (it is really pretty easy). Blogging seems like a great way to share pictures and news with family and friends. Whoever invented it should get some sort of a reward. Speaking of pictures, here is another one of Devin.
