Random Thoughts 5/15/13

  • Today is the 25th anniversary of my baptism in a little church in Winchester, Kansas.
  • IRS abuses, phone taps, and Benghazi.  It's a good thing President Obama isn't Republican or he's be getting crucified like the second coming of Richard Nixon.
  • Tanner was helping Mom experiment with a few different baking techniques today.  I think it's suspicious that so many sugar cookies broke and "had to be disposed of" while Tanner assisted.
  • I've had three migraines (including this morning) in the last five or six days.  This is not cool.  They usually come on about 5 or 6 in the morning and by mid-morning are debilitating.  Usually after 10 or 12 hours they fade away, regardless of the number and type of remedies tried.
  • Next week the television networks announce their fall lineups.  But this year, about 99% of the cancellations and pickups have been leaked already.  I'll probably blog on this next week but I'm ticked about the cancellation of a sitcom called "Go On."  The show had a lot of heart and a great sense of humor.  Now it's gone.  Grrr.
  • We took the family to the Kansas City Zoo yesterday.  The weather was beautiful and we saw the new polar bear, the first polar bear's "girl friend."  This was the first of several visits on this year's Friends of the Zoo family pass.  For a family our size one visit pays for the pass, so return trips become a really cheap, educational outing.
  • I was shocked yesterday to see that Kansas landed top basketball recruit Andrew Wiggins.  Wiggins is highly regarded as the best prep player in the last 10 years, which doesn't really guarantee squat but gives hope to a team that loses five starters.  It also rounds out Bill Self's near perfect resume, as one of the only knocks against him was that he supposedly couldn't recruit and handle blue-chip prospects.  With Wiggins signing and McLemore's potential lottery selection, that criticism should be mitigated.  Want to see lots of videos and links about Andrew Wiggins?  Here you go.
