Family & Friends
We have had a good year. Brooke is going into her second year at Dothan
Medical Associates working in the Lab, which has gotten recent awards for excellence. Chris is going on his third year with
Higgins Electric as their Industrial Programmer.
As of yet, still no children or any on the way.
We are still ridding our motorcycles when we
get the chance. We have plans to take them down to Panama City, FL this year, plus attending several bike
fest in the area. Take a look at what Chris or
Brooke has done to their bikes.
We are planning our anniversary trip this
year, going back to Dragon-CON in Atlanta, GA.
We will start posting pictures of our
vacation exploits (as soon as we go on some).
We found us a pretty good deal on a Jeep
Wrangler. We had been looking for one for a while, and this just happened. You can look at it
here to see what we do to it and what we do with it.
Making great accomplishments on
Vader and our other
Another side note, Chris evaluated with Sensei Elmar Schmeisser
, a Rokudan (6th degree black belt) in ISOK and was told with the proper preparation,
with the right people, I could be ready to test for his Nidan (2nd degree black belt) in about 6 months. Sensei Schmeisser said
that I was a good Shotokan Shodan (1st degree black belt) candidate, meaning since I did not test, I was not awarded Shotokan Shodan,
but my performace showed that I would have a good chance to pass the test.
Only news here, is that on June 21, Chris
had a small bike accident. You can view the details here.
It has been a bit since we updated this area. And
for good reason....not much has happened. We are getting ready for
Dragon-CON in Atlanta GA. This year isn't going to be as great. We had some major setbacks with
Vader, so h won't be going, kinda sad, but my Stargate SG-1 is ready and going, and I was able to make
a Punisher Costume pretty easy, so he is going also. The pictures from DC will be up as soon as they
get taken. You can look here for the pics. Brooke
has been able to make her a few costumes, she has got Electra from DareDevil and Michelle Chang from
Tekken 2, and some general costumes for the scene. Really other that that, we haven't been up to much.
We were able to take a trip to New Orleans with some friends, you can see the pics here
On another note, the bike repairs have started. I have the engine repaired, and now I am waiting on the
air intake from Cruiser Performanceand my custom
pipes from Wild Card Customs. At the same time,
We are working on a completely custom paint job for the bike, we will post pictures as it is being done.
Gift ideas for Family
I know it has a "Buy me something" feel to put that link up, but we have such weird tastes and activities, I figured it would be easier
for everyone if they had a list that we kept up for gift ideas. That way, when birthdays or Christmas rolls
around, everyone has a good idea of what we are looking for. Just trying to make life simpler for all.
