I learned that my son is a train lover. His grandpa built him a handmade wooden train for Christmas. Also, A is for apple, B is for apple and C is for apple, unless Cookie Monster says C is for cookie. Cats love to bother my wife in the middle of the night by laying on her head. It doesn't matter, new (or freshly bought used) cars will always have some sort of things wrong in them. A universal truth all men need to know (I've known this but just restating it): Wives are right 99.94% of the time. The .06% when they're wrong is a husband's job to remind them that they are. You can't go back to living with family after you've been on your own for 15 yrs. Visit? Yes. Stay more that 2 days? NO. It is possible for one person to have 3,038 comic books. Blackest Night is the best comic series of this year. Children have a tendency to surprise and scare you with out trying it. The government is going to mess your life up anyway possible. Giant generators take up to a month to get to nuclear power plants from dock they are unloaded from. Wednesday Night Youth Group is great when I help out with the Middle School class (10x better than the one from years ago). Forgiveness can be the greatest thing in the universe and if you did me wrong in school, you're a friend. Sushi still is good. Sleeping is the second best thing to do. Playing with your son and his toy is the best thing. Top 3 movies for 2009: 3. Watchmen 2. Star Trek 1. Avatar. Life is good as long as you have a positive outlook and try not to loose your cool. As much as think you know more will be learned as you grow older, or if you'd like, Age-ibly Enhanced. Finally, it never hurts to help! Catch you on the flipside!!
Next time: KOOMBYEYAH!!

Sorry Phillies fans, it's Yankees here in Schaefferland. I'm not gonna instigate people (the Wifey made me promise)
So the other week the Swarrs paid a visit from their Los Angeles home. A late night ensued.
Speaking of the Ladykiller, he's doing fine. He dressed up as a farmer for Halloween. Here he's getting ready for Sunday School... Too cute for words. If his mother has anything to say about it,

I saw that in a comic that I bought Monday at the Landisville Flea Market. It's almost a prediction of last weeks events when Disney (The Evil Empire) bought Marvel Comics for $4 billion. A lot of fans (me included) dropped their jaws over the sale. Will Disney muddy up some of the best characters ever? Will it be business as usual? Will Marvel start making Disney comics? Time will tell. In the meantime, here's to hope for a She-Hulk/ Scrooge McDuck crossover written and drawn by one of the best artists Marvel has, John Byrne.
Sorry, short post this week. More very soon. I promise. Catch you on the flipside!
Next Time: Lawn Mowing & Toy Hunt Wrap Up

ITEM! Recently, my aunt and uncle were up from Tennessee. Of course, this means family get-together. It was held at my cousin's place. Fun time was had by all. It did rain but that didn't dampen the spirits of seeing loved ones.
ITEM! Thank you, Mom and Frank, for all the work you've help complete to our home! About a couple months ago, that big bull in a china shop (me) fell through the bathroom floor beside the tub. After a few hours of repairs, we now have a new floor in the potty room. I might have been hesitant on the flooring choice, but I've warmed up to the blue carpet.
ITEM! The summer's second tractor show was held the other Saturday at a local farm. Dad, the ladykiller, and I went to see the pulling and other farm related activities. Pictured is a similar Minneapolis/Moline my father owned when he had the farm. Only thing is, this one is a little bit more rusty.
ITEM! Back in July, our washing machine took a dump and stopped working right. The water would not go down. After some pointing in the right directions by my mother, we found a cheap repairman. I was fooled by the look of his operation, with all the old washers and dryers sitting around, but THIS GUY ROCKED!! Not only did he walk me through the first repair (which was putting on new belts) he then did a house call and found and fixed the real problem (it was a clogged pump - what clogged it? I think it was one of Alex's socks) and adjusted the height all for $40! Yessir, Myers Repair is the one to go to!
ITEM! Monday the 17th was Michelle's burfday! Yay, Wifey!!! So we went to her parents on Sunday for lunch and to relax at their house. Their neighbors have a pool. So, Alex and I brought along our swimming trucks and jumped into the water.
His first reaction was of one fear, which was understandable, but after a while and when Pa-Paw got in he really started to love it. To him, he probably felt like he was in a big bathtub. Of course Michelle wouldn't get in. Chicken. Oh yeah, Sasquatch was spotted in the pool too!
