Oh No!

Well, for the very first time in my life, I've lost something valuable. It wasn't stolen (I think), and I didn't leave it somewhere (I think). I've lost my digital camera. :-(

I had it for sure about 10 days ago, but when Sally and I left for Branson last Thursday, I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked in the church van. I looked in my office. I looked at the Muskogee Baptist Center. I looked at my grandma's house. I've torn the house apart, but the sad fact remains: I've lost my camera.

I am really sad about it, too. It was a very nice Olympus 720 that Sally and the girls got me last Christmas in Hong Kong. It had about 20 pictures that I hadn't downloaded yet. It had a huge storage card in it. It was "weather resistant"; very handy for the likes of me.

We can't afford a new camera right now. I'm going to have to dig out my old Sony with the busted LCD screen. At least it has a view finder so I can take pics.

I miss my camera.

Oklahoma 49 - Oklahoma State 17

What a game!

And congrats to Sam Bradford for setting a new NCAA record for completed touchdown passes as a freshman! (32)

Boomer Sooner, baby!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I won't be near my computer until Sunday (or Monday), but I wanted to take a moment and wish you a "Happy Thanksgiving!"

I am thankful to God for:
  • My Family
  • My Friends
  • My Church (and therefore my job)
  • My Health
  • My Country
  • and last, but certainly not least, My Savior, Jesus Christ!

May you have a blessed, safe, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Christmas Lights

I am awfully excited about what I did yesterday. I got the Christmas lights on the house! There was a cold front moving in today, yesterday was just beautiful (despite the wind), so I took the afternoon and got the lights on all the windows and in the bushes. I still have a few to put up, like the icicles and the Nativity set, but I'm gonna wait until after Thanksgiving to do that.

Sally turned them on while I was out and when I came home they just looked beautiful. It is so exciting to be able to put lights on the roof and to do that WITHOUT using a transformer!

The only thing I am fairly disappointed about is the fact that I can't find any of the "blow-mold" candles that say "Noel". Wal-Mart only sells blow-mold Santas and inflatable stuff. I don't want Santas or inflatable stuff so I'll just have to keep looking. If anyone knows who is selling blow-mold candles this year, please let me know.

Here is a picture of some outdoor Noel Candles that we had on our last furlough in Tulsa:

Sooners Ranked 9th & 10th

In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny, "Ag-go-ny!"

Oklahoma 27 - Texas Tech 34

Ouch. I can't help to wonder what the out come would have been if Bradford had played the whole game. I'll guess we'll never know.

Congrats to the Raiders for destroying our chances for the National Championship.

God Bless Oklahoma!

I haven't been in much of a mood to blog this week. I guess it is the "blahblog". ;-)

Tomorrow, I'm driving a group of folks from the church to look at the fall foliage down around the Talimena drive. Hopefully, this cold front that came in today won't knock all the leaves off the trees.

I'm looking forward to it.

Oklahoma 52 - Baylor 21

And we shouldn't have let them make those 21 points!

8361 - That is the number of hot fudge sundaes you could buy at Braum's for what it costs to buy this one dessert at some fancy schmancy restaurant in New York City. $25,000 for a dessert! Give me a break! You can read about it here.

(now then, Matt, there are two posts with "numbers only"!) ;-)

(No Matt, this isn't for you)

It was 27 degrees when I looked a the thermometer at 6:45 this morning! When I got home last night from the 95th Annual Muskogee Baptist Associtional Meeting, there was already frost on the top of the car. This morning, the frost covered the car, the windows, and the grass. Emily wanted to know what all that white stuff was!

Hopefully, it will quell the allergies.

Oklahoma 42 - Texas A&M 14

I don't approve of the two touchdowns A&M got, but I think they got the point.

Is It The End Of Days?

Is It The End Of Days? - Yahoo! News

I found this story on the KOCO website out of Oklahoma City. Even the secular media can sense it.
