Family is a constant..... constantly changing

So now that I am back at work and life is about to return to normal, it is time for an update.

My cousin Kaitlyn was extremely beautiful at her reception, every woman deserves to look that good at theirs.

At the reception I told my cousin Karolyn to load up her plate with food so that I could eat off of hers and wouldn't have to wait in line. Her immediate reply was "Yep thats my cousin, hasn't changed a bit!" That made me feel special in some wierd way.

My cousin Michael's children and mine got along like they were best friends, kinda scary, it's almost like the cycle starts all over. Hopefully my son won't be beating the crap out of HIS cousins in the future. I don't remember doing it myself, but there is video.

Speaking of Michael, we only stayed up late one night playing video games, also proving the rivalry(does anybody know who started it? I dont have a clue) is alive and well. I am not sure how healthy it is, but it's been over a quarter of a century, how bad could it be?

I have proved that you can drive 900 miles each way with a five and seven year old and they don't have to fight. Don't ask me how that happened, I think it was a fluke and probably won't happen again.

My father and uncle only fought over the dinner tab for about five minutes. I even said I was going to pay before we got there. But obviously my opinion doesn't matter.

My Grandparents are doing well they may not like to be away from home but they make the most of it when they are. As a side note my wife has done a very good job of making Grandmas rolls(did you know that they take all day? I didn't)

But onto the point of this post. My family has scattered across the country and it is rare that I see any of them. Distance and time are only units of measure. Family is a constant it doesn't matter how long it has been or how far apart you are, when you get together it's like nothing has changed. Except for the fact that everybody has grown older, there are new additions to the family to be met and loved, and the comfort that comes from being around people that you have known your whole life.......

p.s. Pictures will follow later

Hi Ho, Hi Ho

it's off to my cousins reception I go. It is comforting to be surrounded by mountains again. The only bright side to West Texas is that at least there are inverted mountains.
Onto guns. I was in a hotel room in NM Thursday night when I observed a gentleman in the lobby wearing a fannypack that I had just read a review of in HANDGUNS! magazine. I was really wondering if it was comfortable and was seriously considering asking him if it was comfortable. However isnt that like saying. " I know you have a gun, how's it feel to carry it in a man purse?" Could have been kinda rude

So the family and I are getting ready to drive from West Texas to Utah this weekend for my cousins wedding reception. Mrs. Sigboy says to me "What are you going to pack?" With out skipping a beat I reply " A rifle, shotgun, two pistols and an assualt rifle." After all it's only a wedding, there's no need to go heavy.
I should have been smarter than that, she was wondering what kind of clothes I was packing. After our discussion a commitee was formed and it was decided, with little imput from me, that I should be fine with one pistol and one high power rifle. I seriously hope that we do not get over-run by zombies. It could be ugly.

First Blog

Hello from cyberspace!
My first official act as a blogger will be to publicly criticize the Dept of Homeland Security
**The NGA’s report concluded that, “to a significant degree, the public has so far been left out of discussions about pandemic preparedness. General preparedness information has focused on self-reliance strategies such as stockpiling food, water, and other necessities. State and local governments should engage the public in deliberations about, and request that the public inform decisions on, school closure and other issues with difficult ethical dimensions**

Also in the article it was mentioned that a large percentage of the population believes that they dont need to plan or preapre because it is not likely to happen or that the geverment will be there to take care of them.

I want to know where all the parents are that raised their children to be victims.
