Welcome to my first blog post!!! I have finally decided to give in and try this, although I cannot envision anyone being overly interested. But trust me when I say that "stranger things have happened!" I do not intend for this blog to be a place to dispatch profound nuggets of wisdom. I do intend it to simply be an outlet for my thoughts - you should consider that as a warning!! If no one ever reads the blog, my time will still be well spent in that at least my wife won't be trapped (as often) into suffering through my ramblings/mumblings/etc.

What you need to know about me - in the words of my college age daughter - I'm weird! I cannot say that the assessment is unfounded. Things about me that justify that description; I am a conservative democrat, that hates politics/political parties and am just as apt to vote Rep., Dem. or Ind. - I am one of only two Seattle Seahawks fans in the state of Tennessee that I know of (surely there are others) - I am an old fart (52 yrs. old) that enjoys hanging with the youngin's more than most people my own age - I am head over heels, madly in love with my wife Kay (we've been married 25 years and I love her more now than ever!!!) - I am a pastor - I am a high school teacher - I am a high school assistant athletic director - I am a coach (interim high school head cheerleading coach- I told you weird was justified) - If you picked up my ipod (oh yeah, I love tech stuff) you would find December Radio, NewWorldSon, Todd Agnew, Vitamin String Quartet, a number of Vivaldi concertos, Willie Nelson, you get the idea - weird! - I love sports - I love to play golf (22 handicap) - I asked for and got a King David's (kinnor) Harp for Christmas - No, I am not mucically talented - I love to read, especially when I walk - This could go on for a lot longer, but I'm sure you get the picture.

So let the fun begin and blogs flow! Of all the things that I have experienced in my 52 years, this will surely be one of them!!!
