The Robots Are Coming

There is this really cool burger place near the project that I am currently working at.  It's called Killer burgers (or at least that is the sub title).  One of the cool things about this place other than the delicious burgers and the bacon ranch French fries, is the cool robots on the counter behind the bar.  Its a line up of really cool and old robots from throughout the ages.

Robots - Part 5

Some of these robots bring up great memories from times near and far... and some of them are just cool looking although I have no idea where they came from.  This place is really interesting, not only in the decorations, but that they show old black and white movies as well on the wall and screens.  Some are SciFi and some are kung-fu, but its all awesome!

Of Weekend Past

A couple of weekends ago we got a chance to have a little date.  Just Paola and me.  We hit Agave, a place that we had visited some time back with some good friends.

Agave Dinner Date   Agave - Delicious Food

Last weekend was also busy as usual.  The kids of course are even more demanding than ever!  But I guess that is part of growing up.  I had to bribe the girls with delicious milk shakes from Chick-Fil-A so that they would not shave my head while I slept.  I wonder how long that will last.

And as the season winds down I finally got a chance to catch one of Matthew's game.  I have been hard pressed to be available for some of these games already.  Although they were close on the score, they were not able to pull out a win.  But I was glad to be able to see my son get some field time.  He is number 75 in the picture.

Preaching to the Choir

This past weekend I got a chance to head to a Ligonier conference with some friends from Rockdale Baptist and also my men's group.  There were some really great speakers like MacArthur, Sproul, Nichols, Lawson...  Great Bible based teaching and great discussion with the crew that went.

Elkmont 2015

What a great time we had this year at Elkmont.  Time to unplug and rough it up for a few days in the Smoky Mountains with family and friends.  If you click on the picture or HERE you can go to the Gallery where there are a bunch of more pictures so you can get a taste.  God is so good for allowing us this little break away.  Remember these times!

Of Cats and Snakes

Well ever since Sophia used her powers of persuasion and pouty face to convince Paola that we needed a kitten, things have been a little more exciting around the house.  The last couple of days we have had not only the kitten but another little visitor.  When ever the cat does anything that warrants a severe beating, she will make a cute little kitten face.  I am starting to think that Sophia has been training her to do that to avoid exile.

Well, the other day I was working in my office and I saw something out of the corner of my eye moving behind the bookshelf.  Lo and behold a little visitor.

Visitor Snake

We have been living here forever, and this is the first time we have had one of these little guys paying us a visit.  Well, although it was mostly uneventful, and we were able to take him to the woods and let him loose:  Paola was not to happy about having this uninvited visitor.
