I am absolutely so stinking happy that you have found your way to some information about who I am and what I am about. First off, I’m a dude just living the life in North Texas somewhere where it’s hot pert near 367 days out of the year. Snow? Never heard of it. Winter? No friend of mine! Cool breezy nights looking up at the stars from the back porch? Not gonna happen here. This is a guy whose sweat sweats! And you’re welcome for that mental picture.
I’m married to a beautiful woman (both inside and out) that is way too good for me. I know a lot of guys say that, but they are all LIARS! All of them. I do think it’s cute the way they dote over their “wonderful” wives and try their best to express with words how amazing their spouse is. But, no words are worthy to be used or could ever describe the woman that picked me (free will and all!) to marry. So, in honor of her, this next blank space is my homage to her and how incredibly wonderful she is for me and to me:
We have six children that we are raising together to be solid citizens and a positive contribution to society. We are considered a large family by today’s standards and it never ceases to amaze me what happens when I tell people that I have six kids. The comments are often rude and thoughtless, but I’m sure still not well-intentioned. The comments that my wife receives are far worse. The most common comment for me to receive from a stranger upon finding out that I have purposefully fathered six children is, “You know what causes that don’t ya? Da-hurrr, da-hurrr, yip-yip, bah-dooooah!” The accent laugh at the end of that sentence may not be grammatically correct. My response, by the way, is “Yep. I can’t keep her off me!” AND SCENE!
I love to write and I love to entertain myself with witty commentary and attempts at colorfully creative ways of expressing my thoughts and observances on life as a dad and husband. Everything I write might not appeal to everyone all the time, but stick around and every now and then, I am sure that something that I say will become an internet meme or at the very least, something that a pre-pubescent middle schooler will put in an Ready Writing manuscript.
I am a Christian, but I know I’m not perfect. I’m also a dad and husband who tries his best to do the right thing and make right choices that are best for his family. While worldviews may differ, I think that we can all learn something from each other. My personal views tend to be conservative, but I don’t mind mature and lively discussions. I’m not blogging to change anyone’s mind, just share my life and my point of view.
But I warn you, I can get awkwardly serious at times, and when I do I will almost always try to ease the tension by throwing in some non-sequitur humor in the mix. When this happens (and it will happen), I fully expect you to point it out and taunt me for taking the coward’s way out of a serious situation. Then I can just block you or ban you from ever being able to access any other blog on the internet. We square? I should hope so. Good day to you, sir I said good day!
