A Dying Art
Robert E. Summer
Friday, February 09, 2007
At times, life is bliss. My 1969 Land Cruiser is finally finished, the Colts won the Super Bowl, in two days I'm going to Florida with my best friend, and for the first time ever, there's a person in my life that means more to me than life itself. About four months ago, I wanted to throw in the towel. I was so fed up with who I'd become that I was going to try to run from my problems, but she wouldn't let me. After what I did, she was the one who should have abandoned me. Instead, she showed me God's love and grace...she didn't give up on me, even though I had. She showed me that it's not the mistakes we make, it's what we do after we make a mistake that determines who we are. In all honesty, if it hadn't been for Lara, I don't know where I'd be right now. I know it's only February, but I asked her to Junior Senior anyway. Guess what? She said yes. For once in my life, everything is perfect.
(For the record, even if the Colts had lost the Super Bowl, I still would have been happy.)

Life Without Them is Like a Song Without Music
Everyone has them. They're the people that motivate you to get up in the morning, the people who tell you to keep going, the people who bring joy to what would have been just another dreary day. They're the people you go out of your way to talk to. They're the people who smile at you from across the room, and you can't help but smile back. You think of them when their favorite song plays on the radio, and you can see their face in your mind's eye. You think of them when you're alone, wishing they were there with you. They're the first people you want to talk to about incredible things. They're also the people whose shoulders you cry on. They're the people who make every effort to be there when you need them. They're the people that mean more to you than anything else in the world, and I'm surrounded by these people. I love them all. They give me reason to press on every day, because I get to spend every day with them.

Georgia on My Mind
Two days after we got back, Christopher T. and I went to the Colts game (which the Colts *ahem* won), and sat near the most annoying Dolphin fan ever. We named her Flipper. Ask him or me about that sometime.
Anyway, Happy New Year to anyone who reads this thinger.

Goin' on a Coon Hunt
Being the good doctor my father is, he decided to set them free (rather than the much easier alternative of blowing them away). He used a method that could be called....interesting. Using his baseball glove, he pinned the raccoons long enough for Jake to cut the snares. Dad was injured in the scuffle, but not seriously, although I suspect he now has rabies.
One of the raccoons proceeded to run straight into another snare after being freed. Stupid thing. Basically, that's the most entertaining thing I had to write today.
