Headed Home to Houston

August 20, 2008

I am in need of a much needed break from work.  What better way to relax than with a few margaritas and a good plate of homemade enchiladas.   Not sure what the next six days will bring, but I am looking forward to seeing the family and catching up with some friends.  I gotta go […]

Happy 30th Birthday Lauren!

August 12, 2008

Today is my sisters 30th birthday.  Send her some birthday wishes via her blog, On the Go with L.  I think the blog needs to renamed to On the Go with Major.  All she blogs about these days are Major and whether or not he took a dump in their house.  But I digress, have […]

Weekend Recap: Me and Gilligan

August 3, 2008

My buddy Arkansas came to visit for the weekend and there were plenty of items on the agenda. FRIDAY After running a few errands and a quick bite to eat and short conversation with Dick VItale at the Broken Egg, we headed for the marina to get ready for our fishing excursion.  We paid our […]


July 29, 2008

Now that I am officially an old man, I want to thank everyone for their birthday wishes.  With that said, i totally expect 27 to kick ass and officially announce my goal of running a marathon for my 27th year of life.  Not sure which one I will shoot for, but once I do I […]

Are You Ready For Some Football?

July 20, 2008

With college football only a month away, what better way to get pumped for the 2008 season than EA Sports NCAA Football. I picked it up this Saturday for the Wii and my buddy Shawn came over to play. I really did not know what to expect. All I have to say is this game […]

No Limit Soldier

July 17, 2008

Tonight I went to play a no limit Texas hold ’em tournament at my buddy Sandman’s house.  I have not played in a while and was anxious to get back in the action.  There were seven of us at the table and everyone plays on a regular basis.  I started out very conservative only playing […]

Right Near the Beach

July 1, 2008

One of the main reasons I moved to Florida was to take advantage of new experiences I cannot get back in Texas.  I live 20 minutes from one of the nicest beaches in the US, and today I decided to take my workout to the beach and go for a nice run while watching the […]

Stand on the Feet and Smile

June 30, 2008

After being here for 8 months I finally went to the Department of Motor Vehicles and got my Florida license.  It was hard for to part with the Texas license.  All I have ever known is Texas and the large amount of state pride that I carry.  It’s one of those things that everyone from […]

Rays Win!

June 18, 2008

Last night a group of my co-workers went to Tropicana Field to see the Rays play the Chicago Cubs during interleague play.  I have been to a few Rays game but have never seen the stadium this packed.  There were Cubs fans everywhere and the cheers for the Cubs were louder than for the Rays.  […]

Happy Birthday Dad!!

June 16, 2008

My dad’s actual birthday was yesterday, but I felt he deserved a post all to himself.  He is pretty lucky, his birthday usually falls around Father’s Day so he gets two rounds of presents.  What sucks about being so far away from the family is I miss out on events like this and all the […]
