She Loves Me - Photos

She Loves Me - Photos
October 23, 2015 Just a couple of hours ago the opening night performance of Orem High School Drama's "She Loves Me!" came off without any major hitches.  In fact, it was totally entertaining and delightful. Our son Aaron played the Mater D and sang a great song dealing with the romantic atmosphere of the French restaurant (I'll post it to YouTube. hearing him once again portray a character with that accent took me back to watching him in the role of Lumiere in "Beauty and the Beast". The show runs through next Tuesday with 7PM starts in the Orem High School Little Theater. Stealing the show was Rachel Peterson singing "Ice Cream" in her red pajamas. I knew the song but had forgotten that it was from this production. Here are some good...

Aaron Runs State Cross Country

Aaron Runs State Cross Country
October 21, 2015 - Sugarhouse Park - Salt Lake City, Utah Wow! I am constantly amazed at the feats my kids accomplish. We watched Aaron run in his final Utah Cross Country race and it was awesome.  We watched him push through pain and fight off runners at the end to finish strongly with a great time. Did he win? Nope! That is the dream, but Cross Country is different in that you are racing for your personal best in the hopes of helping your team in their final standings. Very few get to be at the top of the podium, yet thousands run each year just hoping to give their best performance. The Sugarhouse course is about 3.2 miles with lots of uphills and downhills, which makes it tougher on the runners. I loved watching Aaron push himsel...

Back To The Future - We Are Now Living In The Past

Back To The Future - We Are Now Living In The Past
It is crazy to think that on the space time continuum we are now living in the past. I have spent the morning looking at the old family Polaroids to see if any of my friends and family are fading and I can only hope that Marty McFly was successful in his travels on our behalf. The flux capacitor energized DeLorean was and is a great concept... Talk about successful brand placement in a movie. It put the Delorean on everybody's radar and the never before seen stainless steel automotive finish probably inspired the popular kitchen appliance finish we see in many home's today. "Are you telling me that you built a time machine out of a DeLorean?" Marty Mcfly I am busy this afternoon watching my son Aaron running in the Utah State Cross Country...

Blue Flash - Key Cleaner - Giggles!!!

Blue Flash - Key Cleaner - Giggles!!!
Every now and then I see a photo on the internet and it just makes me giggle.  This is one of them... The thought that somebody might follow the hand written directions and stick their key in the outlet is kind of scary, but everybody has got to go through that type of experience at least once in their life. MY "BLUE FLASH" BACK EXPERIENCE When I was about 8 years old and living in Highland Park, California I was home alone and up to some creative mischief. I loved to take things apart and then put them back together again. Since everybody was gone I had probably changed my older brother's stereo from FM KLOS to something on the AM dial like 93 KHJ. I remember taking a lamp and cutting into the wires and then twisting on a longer cord....

Finish With Your Torch Still Lit

Finish With Your Torch Still Lit
I am as guilty as the next person of starting something new and then stopping before I finish the task.  The dog in this blog's cover photo portrays me in many of my past endeavors. Fortunately, I have the drive to finish the majority of tasks I start, but there are many more that I need to  renew my resolve and finish strongly what I have originally started. I have learned that my Heavenly Father has a great love and patience for me and he encourages me to get back up when I fall and He helps to give me the love and encouragement to finish strongly what I have started... All I have to do is ask for his help. On this coming Wednesday we get to watch our youngest son Aaron compete in the Utah State finals for Cross Country racing.&...
