Why I love my Hunny

Cuz my life depends on it!

She's a good shot!

This is our family's tradition of 'Goin shootin' for Thanksgiving.

I had to work this year but thankfully my dad took some good shots with the camera in between blowing clay pigeons out of the sky.

Our lil arsenal, isn't it beautiful?

Next year Dylan 'tha weasel' will be old enough to join us. After my kids 5th birthday we invite them to our annual family tradition.

I have a feelin that I've made CUG proud...

Kitty on a Cool Tile Roof

I was "working" on my computer Sunday when out of my window I noticed a shadow creeping across my backyard wall that was being cast from my roof. I could tell from its shape that it was a cat! How in the world a cat got up on my roof is beyond me.

I went out back and climbed the wall on the side of my house to get a better view of the kitty. When it saw me it immediately started crying with this sad and incessant meow while being sure to remain out of reach. I've had enough kids to know when a cry means "I'm hungry" but it was not going to trust me just yet.

It was time for some bait...

It was some fresh turkey my wife made as a trial run for Thanksgiving Day.

No chance this kitty with spiderman capabilities can turn this down!

One whiff and he was hooked.

...mmmmmm turkey...

Don't be shy lil kitty, you know you want some!

He wasn't going to bite while my hand was attached to the fork.

To build some trust I left it lying there for kitty to try.

It didn't take long until he decided he was going to take a bite.

Carefully weaseling his way down the curves in the tile roof he inched closer, not taking his eyes off of me.

That was until my two youngest came out to see what I was up to.

He soon realized that they were no threat and turned his attention back to the turkey.

Now I got him. There was no way he was going to get this close without taking a few bites.

With him hooked, I inched closer to get ahold of the fork which is at arm's length as the roof's edge is just below my shoulder.

Clearly disappointed that I decided to pick the fork back up, he deeply weighs the possibilities while the taste of turkey melts on his tongue.

The answer is obvious.

The turkey wins.

Just don't bite the hand that feeds ya...

Now, how do I get you off of this roof!?

Savoring the delicious turkey his attention is returned to my kids who excitedly encourage me to get the kitty down so they can get their hands on him.

Apparently no amount of yummy turkey is worth being in the hands of a 3 and 4 year old.

He decides that the plastic owl (that the pigeons crap on) would make better company.

Schadenfreude Friday

schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\, noun:
A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others.

NEW ADDITION: This moron eats a flagpole in a race for a Playstation 3. Whoever thought of this marketing event ought to have to have his face drilled into a flagpole too... The best part is listening to the guy who had his jaw rearranged speak to the press about chowing steel...

I'm not sure why seeing people get scared is so freaking funny...

But it is... Enjoy...
Happy Friday!

This would get me divorced...

This would get me fired...

Silly Hippy... don't you like Bambi???

This one may be the funniest!

Uhh, may not be safe for work...
(you know you'll try and get away with watching it anyway)

A Salute to Our Vets

Here was last year's Veteran's Day Post with parade pictures...

I was unable to attend this years Veteran's Day parade that marches down the north end of the Vegas Strip, my children however did not. They were able to attend with their Vietnam Veteran grandfather who received handshakes and salutes from strangers all day long while he donned his Vietnam Veteran's hat.

At one point my son Tyler looked up at Grandpa as the wounded vets paraded along in their wheelchairs and asked, "Grandpa, wasn't it hard for them to fight in a war in their wheelchairs?"

I know this post is too late but better late than never...

God Bless America's Vets!


Slack by popular demand

School, kids, work, and stuff has kept me quite occupied, so now that I've completely ignored my blog as of late, it's time to post!

This past Sunday we went to the final big airshow of 2006, Aviation Nation here at Nellis AFB- Home of the Thunderbirds.

Featured this year was the brand new addition to the USAF, the CV-22 Osprey

My pictures of it won't do it any justice for it was quite the machine! (check out the link to the Osprey above for more info and better shots of the AF's newest baby)

Pardon the amateur photos taken with my lil camera

There was a cool Korean War reenactment as planes from that era have been restored and returned to flight.

It featured: The F-86D "SABRE"

The MIG-15BIS "FAGOT" (hey, I didn't name it!)





It was amazing to watch the planes developed through the 1930's and 1940's. It only enhanced the wonder and amazement induced by our modern day fleet.



We even got a lil peek at the baddest fighter jet on the planet...


The Predator did a flyby as well, thankfully it wasn't equipped with any Hellfires.

This thing has got to terrorify Hamas seeing how most of the leadership of their terrorist wing has taken a few of the Predator's Hellfire Missles up the you know where...

Charles "Chuck" P. Aaron, pilot of the Red Bull BO-105 CBS Helicopter pulled of some of the most amazing stunts I've ever seen a helicopter pull off...

Sean Tucker took to the skies in a stunt plane pulling off incredible stalls and flips all the while miked up and giggling like a little kid to all in attendence.

Then the Thunderbirds took to the skies...

Despite a chilly and windy day, we all had a good time...
