I’m not sure what I’m doing here. I never thought I would ever do something like this but it’s been kind of fun. If you like old school blues, funk and rock, check out the radio station.

As most people who know me already knows, I’m terrible at keeping in touch so there is no guarantee I’ll add to this blog on a regular basis but I’ll try to at least once a week.

To bring everyone who I haven’t talked to up to date, here are some of the last year’s highlights:

September 2006 – Evelyn and I bought our first house. It only took us 24 years but it was worth the wait.

October 2006 – We had our first blizzard of the season and I had my first experience at shoveling snow. Not my happiest moments.

Thanksgiving 2006 – We had at least 20 family and friends at the house for Thanksgiving dinner. We had a blast and the weather was great.

Christmas 2006 – Evelyn’s mother, Doris, joined us over the holidays. She really enjoyed the 2 blizzards we had while she was here.

March 2007 – Evelyn was laid off.

April 2007 – I was laid off.

May 2007 – I went on a road trip with my cousin Lyndell to Utah and Las Vegas. After that I decided to take the summer off.

June 2007 - Evelyn and I took a week-long road trip and went to see family in Oklahoma and Texas. On the way back we spent the night at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Alberquerque, NM. It was 5-star all the way and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend away.

July 2007 – Evelyn went back to work. She is the Office Coordinator at Swan-Law Funeral Directors. Her mom and three of her aunts came for a visit over the 4th of July. It was probably one of the most fun and wildest weeks I have experienced in a long time.

August 2007 – Summer fun is over. That’s what happens when the severance checks stop coming. I’m looking for work.

September 2007 – Still looking for work. So far the score is:

35 applications

3 interviews

0 offers

I’ll keep you posted.
