We finished church and headed home. J took off with some friends, I ran G to baseball, L hung out watching the olympics and getting things done around the house. I found 52K emails in my Google account that I worked on cleaning up so I wasn't at my data limit. I joined L&G in the living room and D&J got home. D headed back out to DGF7's and J&I ran to get dinner. Home and ate, then ran J to youth group. Eventually everyone home D&J attempted to finish the laundry for L. Up late watching the olympics.

Soon G&J got home, followed shortly by D after baseball conditioning. I finished up and we all got in the car and headed out to dinner. Our first stop had a 25 min wait so we tried a new Chinese place. It was pretty good and we didn’t have phones out so it was a nice dinner. We swung by the video store on the way home and picked up some movies. Home and we split up to watch the movies, L&G upstairs watching a Emoji movie and DJ&I headed down to watch the latest Resident Evil. After the movies we all headed to bed.

D broke a leg off a chair.headed to Phantom of the Opera. It was a good show I had trouble hearing the words. Everyone loved it and G was memorized by it. 


It had snowed the entire time we were in the play and the roads, even 670, were awful. Took a long time to get home. We had to force GpaW to stay, way too risky to try to get to the Farm in this weather. The boys stayed up and watch an old Robinson Cruso on AMC before heading to bed late.

We got on the road about noon and I took a call that lasted almost the entire drive. We got to the Farm, unpacked and I hit the PC again working until Roger showed up with 20 pheasants. We got dressed up and headed out to seed the fields. Roger, GmaW, DJG&I walked down through the fields and put the pheasants out in various places. It wasn't miserable cold and was easier than previous years the boys are getting good at it. After we got the all set out we headed in. I did a bit more on the PC and then we headed to Jake's in Ashland for a nice dinner. Back to the Farm and we wound down the night and got to bed in good time.

20171117 - Up in the am and in to work. Morning went fast, trying to clean out open action so next week goes smooth. Home as the boys were finishing their packing for the campout, G was a bit anxious. I double checked their packs and the boys headed out. I finished getting ready and then headed to McD's to pick up some food. I got the camp out just as the Troop did and helped D set up the tent. D&I got our cots set up and then checked in on J and helped the adults get some things done. G had a blast splitting wood. After everything was done we all sat around the fire for a bit and listened to stories. This is the first time ever all the Winger boys together at a Scout campout! G&I headed out so they could tell some grownup stories. We got situated in our sleeping bags and fell asleep quickly. I only woke up about 4 times, to the hard pouring rain, I love that sound.

20170105 + Dylan Eagle Court of Honor

Up in the am and got all my paperwork done for the week. We got everything loaded and everyone ready for D's Eagle Court of Honor. Gma&paB stopped by the house before and gave him his gift, awesome Henry Golden Eagle rifle. We then headed to the church and got things set up. L had everything planned out and it looked fantastic. The ceremony started and went off without a hitch. It was a beautiful ceremony that flowed nicely and wehn D got his chance to address the crowd of people that showed up that had been a part of his life at present and in past events it really hit him. He got very emotional and I think it finally hit him how important this life milestone was... After the ceremony L had nice refreshments and snacks for folks and everything went smooth.


Home for a bit to unload the video and change and hen out for a nice dinner with Gma&paW. Home and we looked at D's new gun and the scrapbook GmaW put together for him with all the letters from famous folks and big companies from all over the country.  What a super nice day!

20170920 - D Hits a Tripple

20170920 - Up slowly in the am and in to work. We had a customer onsite today and my morning was very busy. L&D took a trip to Wright State for a college visit today. I got done working and headed home. I stopped to pick up my new glasses frames on the way.  Had a quick beerr and headed back to G's game. It was a train wreck from the get-go so watched only enough to turn my stomach and headed to D's game. D's team was losing to a younger team when I got there. They pulled together, D hit a triple and cleared the bases to give his team the lead. They held the lead the rest of the game and we headed home.
