Random Thoughts 6/21/12

  • Shannon and I are almost ready for Day Camp this Saturday at Mission Lake, which is church camp for 1st and 2nd graders that we are in charge of again this year.  We'll introduce them to camp, teach them a Bible lesson, memorize a Bible verse, do a craft, play lots of games and have lots of fun.  This year, Graham is our first-grader-to-be.  That's hard to believe!
  • I am a "thoughtful guy."
  • The BCS is changing (thankfully) and there are several scenarios that could put a team like Notre Dame in the Big 12.  Hmmm.
  • Hey media, you forgot to wring your hands in manufactured outrage and anguish over the milestone of 2,000 American deaths in Afghanistan.  Back in 2005, everyone on TV went apoplectic over the senseless tragedy that was Iraq when we passed 2,000 deaths there.  But it went completely unheralded last week now that President Obama is commander in chief.  Did they stop caring about soldiers?  Do they no longer blame politicians for our military actions?  Where's the outrage?
  • Other than weed-eating, I don't think we've mowed (or needed to) in almost a month.  We just keep knocking off the tops of the weeds and waiting another week.  But it rained buckets here last night, so now the grass will probably start growing again.
  • Here's a funny list of the 21 worst things in the world.  I'm on aboard with almost of all of them.
  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter = dumbest thing I've ever heard.  I know the book was a popular bit of re-imagined history but c'mon. 
  • Yay.  The Heat won.  I'm… thrilled… I guess.  Woot?
