      Serious analysis indeed Brent. HA! HA! SW1 is looking forward to reading your upcoming football evaluation buddy. :) Your wife radiogirl rocks BTW! :)

      I tried to be quiet...hard to do when techniques go awry. I have a much better feeling on who will be cut now.

      Thanks SW! We had a great time! Brent was Mr. Analyzer yesterday! Fun hearing his take on things. I'm learning a lot about football from him; particularly our great team!

  3. A fantastic weekend at the farm and Jackson County Fair with radiogirl and the family!! For Hoosiers, I do not think you can beat this fair as far as county fairs go! Even the old LB rode some rides :)

      Don't get on those fast spinning tea cups though Brent. Hurling on 1 of those makes you feel like a baby that must turn in their man card forever. Only teasing brother! :D

      Ha! Ha! DJ SW1 AKA Mr. Mix A Lot...Thanks CF4L & Brent! All my Forum Friends make me LOL & put a smile on my face. All my friends including Forum moderators ROCK! :D Brent is becoming Tech Savvy eh radiogirl? Awesome! Just like my other brother Jay Kirk, Brent has a taste for good music IMHO. That's everyone for tolerating SW1's musical obsession. I appreciate it. In my next life, I will be an award winning record producer. :)

      I just told him my Colts family was rooting him one....he is psyched to play his best game!! Batting cage at 11.....baseball at noon. As the kids say at the end of the Little League Pledge: "Win or lose, I will always do my best."

      Good luck Nick!Brent nothing more rewarding than watching kids learn and put what they learn into motion,can still remember those days

      BrentMc11

      Thanks Jay.....

      Hang in there buddy. Drink something refreshing Brent & thanks for making sure Que is refreshed too. I do agree though sweating off pounds isn't all that glorious though. I hope the HVAC guy has fixed everything by now.

      On Birthdays, I always think of the George Carlin Tombstone line: "He was just here a second ago." Ha! Ha! Age is a weird thing. Some days you feel young other days you feel old, slow, & 1 step closer to your mortality. It varies I guess.

  10. While I have always celebrated Memorial Day remembering those who fought for our country and died while serving (As well as those serving in Peace Time) Memorial Day with the kids was something I had never experienced. I loved talking and teaching the true meaning of Memorial Day...as well as fun at the farm...WOW! What a weekend!!!

      southwest1

      Yup, Memorial Day is more than just a picnic, a day off, or even visiting a grave site or hearing a marching band...It's about fighting for a vets disability benefits, making sure these vets get the care they need when they come back broken & can't erase nightmares from their minds, & honoring the families that pray their loved one doesn't come home in box.

      so sorry to hear about your loss Brent! I hope you find comfort in your loving memories. I hate geting older for the reason that my loved ones get older. Itis such an strange bitter sweet feeling watching your children grow and being excited for them, but then watching your parents grow older and wishing time could stop.

      Brent you take care of Denene. You're the old LB and you know the LB's has to take care of business. You've got run support and pass coverage you can do it. Just using football terms in real life, pull that chin strap tight and just "BRING IT"!

      Isn't that the day that the world is supposed to end? Sounds perfect for a wedding - might make the day easier to remember. lol "Oh yeah, it's the anniversary of the day the world ended, I'd better get a gift".

      On the other hand, if you wait until the 22nd you might get a bargain on a reception hall.
