# 50

I'm doing good in school have not finished like I have hoped to but am getting close. Sorry this is a short post but I have to run. I will catch you up a little better a little later.

am i there yet

School, I use to hate it. Come to find out, not much has changed. I am half way through my semester. Honestly it is not that bad. I love the cooking class we meet 2 nights a week, the only problem is I miss being with my girls but I have made other times to spend time with them. The online classes are time consuming. I have had to run out of my office to interview people a couple of times. And then all the typing. Which I have really gotten better at. Now everybody wants me to cook a gourmet meal for them. I keep most experiments between my family and I that way if they bomb I can order a pizza and just forget it. Looks like at the rate I am going to get my associate it will take me 3 years. But that is not bad being a part time student.

The good news is I have 3 assignments and my final left in one class which I hope to finish this Saturday. And the other class just started this half of the semester the first assignment is due on the 22nd but oh bigger boy has worked hard and is in Ch #3 and should be finished with this class by the end of next week which will only leave me with posting some comments on a school blog and my night class.

So this is how my school is going.

Below is what my instructor called an Arabic Wedding dish. It is a mold of zucchini with a layer of rice and then chicken and then rice. It is garnished with artichoke hearts, grape leave rolls parsley and stuffed tomatoes. It was pretty good. Sorry the picture is hazy

Lordy Lordy guess who is 30

No not me but my wife is. We had her party this weekend. Just some family over and I grilled some hot dogs and cheese burgers. It was nice. She got her gift earlier last month it was a new car not brand new but new to us she also got socks and the new Zac Brown band CD. I Do love her and now have to respect her because she is my elder. Or this is the joke I have been playing with her. I think she is now considered a classic. She has heard it all but she is a good sport about it. I still remember telling her not to tell her family I was only 17 when we met. She was almost 19. She got me to the car with candy. I would not change a thing now. I love my life.

The post I didnt want to make.


It happens to all of us. We will all die. You may believe different things about what happens when we go but the real deal is that we all die. I have had many fiends and family die. I'm sure we all have. Today I am going to talk about one person in particular. His name was Jerry. Jerry was a good friend, thru family I think he would be my great cousin. He lived in Florida for a long time and then returned to NC almost 10 years ago. We talked occasionally he would help me and I would help him. If I ever needed some one I new I could call on him, even though I seldom did. I remember when I heard he had cancer. I thought well if any one has ever survived this it will be Jerry. He was a tuff fucker. He was full of stories of his past. I always enjoyed a good Jerry story. He loved to tinker on cars and use to be a plane mechanic in Florida. I was told by my father that Jerry had called him and said that when they opened him up they just shut him back and said there is nothing we can do. I still was in denial. But I was scared to go see him because what do you say. My wife and father said you need to go see Jerry but I didn't. Finally when I felt like I had waited long enough I went and saw him. He was very frail and in pain. I remember he looked like my Wife's grandma did before she passed. Now looking back I should have been there while he could still do stuff instead of waiting on him being bed ridding. Jerry passed this morning about 5:00 eastern time. The last time I really talked and hung out with Jerry was before he found out about the cancer. At this time he told me a story about my great grand ma. My dads, moms, mom. If you can follow. He was there that night she passed, him and his sister. My great grandma was very ill. She told Jerry she wanted to hear the song about the bird. If I remember correctly she passed during this song. So even though Jerry never said anything about this song to me other that the story about my great grandma I feel this is the best thing I can do for him. I'm sure he liked this song. Jerry once told me only the good die young. If that is the case I wish he would have sinned a little more. This is my GoodBye. Jerry you will be greatly missed. But carry on I'm sure we will meet up in the future.

On Higher Ground

Well I'm back from my trip. It will be never forgotten. With out boring you with the small stuff I will hit on the never forgotten topics. I caught the big fish it was a 30" drum. I have a picture that my sisters boyfriend should send and when he does I will post it. There was only 4 of us and one guy spent Saturday night and Sunday morning in the toilet. the cabin gets real small with some one barfing. And on Saturday night headed back to the cabin my sisters boyfriends truck caught on fire. I was riding in it. I throwed sand for about 5 minutes before it finally went out. I will never forget that smell. or how hot it was. some how it just burnt transmission fluid off and the damage seems to be minimal. He had it towed back home. That was the highlights of the trip. fishing was so so, it rained some I got burnt another day and the last day I had on long sleeves. To be honest I cant wait to go back.

Rain on my Parade

Well I have a weekend of fishing planed at the Outer Banks of NC. Ferry was suppose to leave Thursday morning at 9:00 But I am still here. The Ferry is not running. We where able to get a new ferry ride for 6:00 am in the morning. The rain is flooding low lying areas. And next is this little tropical storm that will be here tonight. Who know they say there are 10' waves. A little bigger than bigger can fish in. It may be a weekend of heavy drinking and card playing.

Famous Bigger

I love music and in about 1996 when I heard Sublime for the first time, I fell in love with there style of music. Like most eastern U.S. people I did not discover them until the lead singer Bradley Nowell passed from a overdose. In the past year or so there has been a new guy take Bradley's spot. It will never be the exact same but is the closest it can come to the real thing. In July I was able to see the new band Sublime with Rome and the Dirty Heads. Matisyahu was also playing but I am not a huge fan of his music. I do own one cd and listen if he is on the radio but that is as far as I have gotten. At the concert there where many people with cameras videos and cell phones. I decided to look online to refresh my self and carry myself back to that night. For me it was on my bucket list. I was watching a video and heard a guy holler. It sounded like me. So I looked at this guys videos and during One Day by Matisyahu he pans to a girl sitting beside him. This was the girl that was sitting in front of me. After watching the whole vid I see my self. At approx 4 min and 30 seconds he pans to the right and there I am. Me and my big o bigger self. The message for this is to always be on your best behavior because who knows where your picture or video will show up.

Sorry for the lack of post I have been on the depressed side for a while. On Labor Day my wife's aunt passed. She was only 40. Having to watch my mother in law be upset hurts me. Unlike most in laws she is probably the greatest anyone could ask for. Then it got in my mind that she is the only sister left. She has 6 siblings 3 girls and 3 boys. There mother passed about 8 years ago and now 3 of the sisters have passed. They where all young, in there 50's expect this last one who was 40. It made me think about how it could all be over so quick. My mother in law is in her 50's. She is a big part of our life and it is hard to think that she may not be here much longer. There is nothing wrong with her just her family history is short. Then there is my wife who is the same blood as them. Could she go quickly? All these things have been dancing around in my head. We had the final memorial last night. It took awhile. There had to be an autopsy and then she had to get in line to be cremated. So with all that done we can move forward.

On a better note. One of my best friends got married this weekend. He had a beach wedding on the Atlantic seashore. It was beautiful and simple. I think this is a great move for him. He was married once and it did not work. This new girl who he has been with has 3 kids. She is a sweet heart and is perfect for him. Her oldest daughter made a speech to them after the wedding and it made me realise how happy they really all were. I am happy for them. I also got to see his whole family whom I have met in the past but do not see that often. Me and the oldest daughter where in the wedding.

Aint We Cute

There was a family ceremony thingy that is what the sand in the glass containers is on the table to the right. After the wedding it was a joke on the middle child. All of his sand did not fit in the jar. He got left short. It was funny. I do wish these 5 the best life ever. They are good people and deserve it.

Direct Miss

Wow, I got nothing from this storm. It did not effect any thing I have. We were lucky because it was a large storm. Now I just hope people have enough since not to get carried away at the beach with the rip tides.

I Set It

I have shipped my house out today. With effects of the storm starting some time tomorrow after lunch. If all goes well today we should be fine. I will not be able to vinyl the ends by tomorrow but trust my crew enough to not let the house get wet.

This afternoon I have school. It will be the first time we are in the kitchen. I have to say I am a little excited. I will let you know how it goes.

I will try to post some pics of this storm right now it is beautiful. The calm before the storm. A high of 92 and clear. What a Great day.

Blown away

Well here he comes, Earl. The big bad storm. I am a little concerned about this one. Weather forecast shows it to be a cat 4 before brushing off the east coast. I have seen this before and the storm always wants to inch westward. In the past I liked hurricanes. It gave me a break from school. Usually knocked out the power and we have to rough it. But as I have gotten older I realise there is not much good from one of these storms. We have 16 homes with land we own for the business plus our personal residences and 13 houses on our sales lot. A lot can go wrong with this. Also I am suppose to set a house Wednesday that has a raised roof. I do not remember another storm other than Floyd that has been bad. Floyd flooded the small town where my sister sales lot is. In fact, it sits in a flood area. The only good out of that storm was I met my wife. This week will be interesting to say the least. I will keep yall posted on what happens.

Life has been very busy. To catch every one up the surprise date went great. I told her Saturday morning to be ready to leave at 6pm that we had reservations. I did not tell her what town, even though she asked, because the small town we went to only has one restaurant that makes reservations. We ate and just talked for over an hour. It was just like some of our first dates. We where learning each other again. It was very refreshing.

I started last Monday with online classes. Boy was i surprised tring to figure all that out. I have atleasts 2 assiments due every week but they are all posted so I can get ahead which is what I'm tring to do. Class at the coleege on Wed and Thurs. I think I am really going to enjoy it.

My oldest daughter started kindergarten today. Holy Crap. She was just born where has the time gone. They have early outs today and tomorrow so I have all ready spoke to her and she had a blast.

The baby, well she is meaner than ever. She has her moms attitude.

So Im going to get back to work hope everyone is doing good. I should post a little more often Im just busy.

Stay in School

I have been around posting on some different blogs when I notice that my spelling is terrible. Kids Stay in School. If you know a kid tell them to stay in school. Not only stay in school but listen. That was my problem I did not listen and now I have a hard time spelling. It is something that should not be a problem, but it is.

Thank God for spell check

The Plans

Last Sunday afternoon the baby and I started to the hospital to do a follow up sleep study on her. I was a nervous wreck. I am not use to doing this doctor stuff with out my wife by my side. We had decided I would take her so my wife could go to work and get off the next week to see our oldest daughter at cheer camp. Any way the sleep study went well. We do not have the results back yet but for me it was not bad. So during all of this I really missed my wife and had thoughts about just how good she is. So I concocted a plan. She got flowers yesterday and I plan on caring her out to eat tomorrow night. Just a little jester to say thank you for all you do. We will be going to this nice restaurant down town. Really it is the only nice restaurant around. The part I have not figured out is how to tell her we are going out to eat. My plan is to give my parents a note that they deliver to her at 5:00 pm and it basically says be ready to leave at 6:00 and at that time my parents take the kids. But what if she is not home. She may be out shopping with her mom. she may be, well who know. I should just relax and run with it as it flows. I will let you all know what happens. I love surprising my wife.

Pecan Nuts

Well here they are. As Bob called them, they are pecan nuts. These are some of the first to come on our trees. They are on the Pawnee trees. Our Stuart and Desirables are not producing like we wish. But come fall there will be enough nuts to pick up that is for sure. We planted 271 trees and now have a little over 200 left. We have replanted and replanted. Lost some to a drought and some to a freeze and others we are not for sure why. It has been a learning experience. But I enjoy them. We cut the grass about every other week and have to spray round up about every 6 weeks. It has become a big chore but we feel like it will pay off. at least for me and my sister. My parents will end up spending must of the money and my sister and I will benefit from it. I say we but my father does must of the spraying and me and my mother split the mowing. My sister is in Pharmacy School but she did ride the mower some this year. So here are my nuts. Sex does sell and since I have never found my niche in the sex industry I deal with nuts, just a bunch of nuts. So far we have produced enough to feed my family's love for nuts. And as it looks that might be the same case this year. But one day maybe in your local grocer you will see Biggers Nuts in person and I hope you pick up a bag.

Sex Sales

There is no Question about it. Sex sales. Every where you turn there is something to do with sex. With that being said to attract new readers to my blog the next picture I post will be of my nuts. Shy or not this has to happen. Maybe tomorrow or the next day but I pledge not to post until my nuts are on this blog. I'm guessing I will have at least 5 comments after I post my nuts. We will have to see. So tell all to keep checking for the first ever posting of Biggers Nuts.

This is me and my better half

I have been debating for a while about posting pics of my self. You know I don't want to become this famous blogger and get my on TV show. But with my looks it could happen. I also have a slight fear of having a stalker, but anyway. With all my paranoia aside this is me and my wife. Now you can put a face with the name and know why my name is Bigger.

Backwards Investing

Tomorrow will be a bitter sweet day for my father and I. We purchased a piece of property in a big town with a lot of growth. Then we picked a floor plan had it drawn. Took the plans and had at least 2 quotes on all things needed to build. Good profit, good lot, lets go. With septic info approved it was time to apply for building permits. Then it happened we got cold feet. Was the market strong enough to sell a big house, what was happening, it was crashing all around us. The housing market was going bad. We did not build that house. We put the lot back on the market. The bad part is we borrowed quick money (for the land) at a high interest because we new that we would consolidate the land into a construction loan. Well that never happened and for the past 2 years we have been paying this high interest rate. It is kinda like those interest only loans. So tomorrow we are suppose to close on the land. for less than we bought it and a loss of all the interest. I am glad to see this piece of dirt go. If I were to go back I don't know what I would change. I do know I would have borrowed $ in a different manner. The only good part is we purchased a house this week and have borrowed against it to cover the loss on the land. With this being a flip we should be able to recoup. But it is a hard lick. Bad investing has brought down many companys. Lucky for us this is just one bad investment. Bigger is just going to have to turn up the heat and sell an extra house.

It is no secret I live and work in a country area. The deer roam the coons run and the opossum play dead. My office is right out of this small town and is surrounded by fields on all sides. We have had problems with mice in our office and I have been able to catch them at first sign of there poo. I worked Saturday at my office. Monday I was out checking on our houses. Tuesday, yesterday, I came in late so Deb my coworker could go to our other sales lot and help them out. I noticed a stinch in the air but not to bad. This morning I walk in and I am hit with this rank, retched, odor that made me gag. It is a dead mouse. Or so I think. I look around the office tring to find it. The smell is strongest in my office. I leave and get air fresheners. When I return I realize the smell is extremely strong. I have to find this dead mouse. I get to my bathroom and open the cabinet under my sink. And there is the smell. I have my head all in there tring to find this small rotten mouse when I see it. Not a dead mouse but a dead baby opossum. This thing is the size of a rat. you have never seen a bigger jump like I did. It just startled me. A dead Smiling opossum. So I remove this rotten carcass.

Tell me how in the world did a opposum get under my sink. When the smell clears I will have to find its entrance. Hell if a opposum can get in there so can a rat, snake, cat, hell another oppsoum. Thank god you all dont no me personally this is embarrsing. I am a clean person and usally dont keep my oppsoun under my sink. Damn that is nasty.

I've been around just lost. Seems like life just takes me away sometimes. i have been doing good. My ladies are good. Life just seems grand. We are getting geared up for school. My oldest starts kindergarten this year. she was in school last year in a class they called transition. She will be going to kindergarten which is more like real school. We got a new dog last Saturday. I mean my wife got a new dog last Saturday. She is cute, not what I would have wanted but she is not my dog. I am going back to school for Culinary Technologies. So since I will be gone 2nights a week she wanted a guard dog. And for the baby, well she is growing way to fast. I have to carry her to Chapel Hill for her last sleep study. She is doing great. I think everything is just fine. It is amazing how some reflux can make you so sick. But Thats about it.

Saturday, July 3, 2010


I see all the blogs that I look at and people just have all these ideas about what to put on there blog. Me I have nothing. My mind is a huge balloon full of nothing. If you looked inside my head you would see a space full of that stuff called anti-matter The nothing that makes up like 99% of space. I'm just so uncreative. God It sucks. Oh well still have no computer. I'm on the office computer. Every one have a happy 4th. I will post again when i come up with something creative. but if I have to wait on that I may never post again.

Wednesday, June 30, 2010


Im still here but my computer is having a problem. They say it is the mother board. Who knows. I will post when I get it back.

Thursday, June 24, 2010


I got stung by a wasp today on the face. It hurts. Of course I am a puss when it comes to pain. any how Bigger land is doing good. I got a recliner for fathers day. my first own recliner. I feel like a real man now. My wife and kids are so sweet. Hope all is well in your place.

This is a picture of one year ago. holding my baby is my oldest daughter. Today is a big day in my life. My baby is turning 1. I remember last night a year ago my wife and I where watching Deadliest Catch. She laid down and said. Something just happened. It felt like a pop. So she stood up. Well Niagara falls came a gushing. Sorry if you have a weak stomach. The next day we had our second child. At around 12:00 lunch eastern time we where dancing in the hospital room. Our child would not come out. We danced for about 20 minutes. Really I just held my wife up while she swayed her hips trying to get the girl to fall out. It worked and out came baby. It was a great day. One that I will never forget. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY baby. I love you so much.

Easy Going

I'm just at the office taking it easy today. I set the house Monday. Yesterday I had my electrician, plumber, hvac guy and my septic tank guy all there. They all finished and I have an inspection for today so I can brick it Thursday and Friday. We will see what happens.

I am on top today. I did a little exercise last night and have been doing good on my diet. I plan on losing weight before I go on vacation in December. I did not get the name bigger cause i am small that is for sure. But i feel so much better. I have been drinking water and nothing but water. having apples for breakfast and cutting out all my snaking. I am thinking about post pictures of myself on the blog to let you all see my progress. it is a hard thing to do because of how big i have let my self get. I don't know for now. I have to be dedicated this time. this time I am doing it for my kids. Who wants a dad that is to fat to ride certain roller coasters. I noticed this year at her school there wont many big people. It makes me realize people really care about themselves. I just enjoy food. Food is Good. We will see.

As the 30th of June inches ever closer the pressure mounts. I have said before that I am in the housing industry. I am a licensed contractor in the state of NC. But I mainly over see my fathers business. Which is buying and selling new and used mobile homes, or manufactured homes, or trailers. What ever you want to call them. I have pushed hard and have all my homes that qualify for the $8000, that the government is giving, done in a timely manner. I have a final inspection on 3 of them today I know 2 have already passed. And I have a final inspection on one tomorrow. So I'm done. I made it. And then out of the blue comes one. One that the owner, my great father, told the customer we could probably make it. And we may can. Problem being I don't have a house yet. And it may be Friday before we can get it. So I have to set the home up. Get the plumbing, electrical, hvac done. Put down a septic tank. run a water line and have the home bricked and trimmed. and also have a passed final inspection by the 23rd at the latest. If my guy sets the home Monday which is when he has it scheduled unless his boys work Saturday which they may do I will have 10 days to do all this. It can be done. I just have to have the help of all my subcontractors. This is when I pull all my favors out. I Love a good challenge. The problem with this one is if I fail My customer is out $8000. Now its not my fault he waited to the last minute to buy his house. But we all know if it don't happen it will be my company's fault. Oh well it wouldn't be the first time i have dealt with an irate customer. and probably want be the last.

I am off to the beach to celebrate Memorial Day. It will be a weekend of sitting around and doing nothing but drinking beer for me. I may do some fishing and might do some shrimping definitely some grilling. But I will keep the men and women past,present and future that serve this country on my mind. My oldest daughter has been out of school so I have had her this week. Yesterday we stopped at a store and bought a small American flag and carried it to my grandfathers grave. I like to tell my kids of how it use to be, and about the people they never met. My grandfather was in the navy. He was a drunk and I never was able to really get to know him. We did see him on some holidays and when he was on a sober streak. I figure if he served this country he deserves a flag at his grave.


At the top is suppose to be an American flag but I can not get my computer to copy and paste.

Bloger Block

I'm in the middle of a brain freeze. Not from ice cream but from pure blankness of my mind. I have a few blogs i follow. Sometimes when I read them before I write on my blog i want to write about the same thing they talked about. Like Laroos (Are you my life) trip makes me want to talk about the Disney trip I booked last week for me and my kids and the wife. Then Bobs (What about Bob) has a music video that reminds me that I am tring to go to Virgina in July to See Sublime with Rome. But I feel like I should come up with my own thought. Which is where I'm stuck. I don't have a thought. thinking is just to hard for me to do right this minute. I think I am burn out. I think I want a beer. I think 2PAC is alive. I think Elvis is dead. I think i am done.

Oh there it is I am going to ride my 4 wheeler this Sunday. Yes I am part Country. But don't care for the music. It has been a long time since i have Delved into the nasty, sloppy, goo they call Busco Beach. 2 hours from any ocean this place is great for any ATV off road enthusiast. I will let you know how it turns out. I have blown an engine sank my 4 wheeler multiple times and broke an axle at this place. MAN IT IS FUN.

The Early Bird gets the Worm

I have heard this saying for years. And there is some truth behind it. But every time I heard that saying I would always follow with. "YEA but the early worm gets ate." and there is some truth to that also. I have learned to play it both ways. I do think getting started early is the best way. But I say get up look around see which worm is the longest. Make a call and see what kind of worm your neighbor caught. Don't jump the gun. Play the field. We only have one life to live so if you want to sleep in occasional, it should be fine there will be other worms. Bigger juicier ones. Like at the bottom of the tequila bottle.

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO or how ever it is spelt.

Tee Ball

And I thought my life was good. Then my oldest daughter started tee ball. We had our first game last night. My wife was a soft ball girl and it seems to have carried over to my oldest girl. She seems to enjoy it and she will charge the ball. The name of there team should have been the hornets because if a ball comes toward them they swarm to it. Right now it is who can get the ball. They don't quiet understand the "throw to first" thing. But to watch her is great. I look forward to many afternoons at the diamond.

For an update on my littlest girl she is great. running at 110%. We use to think she was a happy baby but we had know clue of how happy she could be. She is pulling up and trying to step. It want be long before we have to lock up the place.

Tuesday, April 27, 2010


I do not have Internet at my home. Yes I live in the middle of nowhere. We just got good cellphone reception in the last 3 years. So I can only post while I am at work. I try my best to have all my work about caught up before I start playing with my blog. That is why my post some times are spaced. Been having a good run at it though. Carried the baby to Chapel Hill Hospital to meet with a pulmonary specialist. We changed a few things and she is doing great. Me and the wife are having good days and then some bad. We just don't seem to see eye to eye anymore. I know that is not a good thing but we are working on it. I have a hard time understanding how I love her so much. I mean I really do LOVE her. But yet we seem to be so different. I have thought about divorce and how things would be and it scares me. I don't want to be without her. There is no one else that I want, but yet we bicker and bitch every day. WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!! We are not talking divorce or anything but I know it could happen. I have seen it many times. I don't know. I just feel better when I type about it. Just seems to get it off my chest. I know you are tired of hearing my complaints but it does help to put it out there.

On a positive note. Sunday night i ate some greens out of my garden. It makes it worth it once you start been able to consume all the hard work.

I will leave with this,

Democrat Or Republican

Wow. I don't get political and this will no way down either party. Well it does one but I will not disclose which one it is.

Me and the Wife where invited to a reverse drawing for a local political group. We have a family member who is running for an elected office. This family member is one who was married into the family under bad circumstances. We really do care for this family member but have to do somethings because of the situation (Its a long story). Anyway, We arrived at this event in causal affair to see some people in suits and some in shorts and t-shirts. that was no problem. Then we ate. The food was good. Then the reverse drawing took place. First off they had the # board behind where they were all standing and you could not see the #s. Second they where suppose to sell 200 tickets and by the time they called out all the open #s they had only sold 162. That was no big deal either. but then they started calling out #s they forgot to take the #s off the board. the tumbler door would not latch so they could not mix the #s up that good. and at one point they dropped about half of all the #s out of the tumbler. It was the most unorganized thing I have ever seen. And these people want to help run a country. They cant run a revers drawing. Oh how I feel sorry for my kids because they will be the ones to catch what is being done now.

Some people may think I am out of line but, There is a very small local vfd close to my house who holds a revers drawing every year. there 300 tickets always sell out and if you don't get yours early you want get one. I know because I did not get one last year. this event runs smooth and is very fun to attend. No drunk lawyers or back stabbing politicians. I think I will vote for the fire chief in this next election.

Following Me

So I was not going to post today. But while sitting in my office chair trying to juggle all my contractors and suppliers I happen to glimpse at the window and there it was. a pink and yellow moth. so i run to the truck and get my nice camera and it is dead. I mean completely dead. so then i get my back up and snap a pic. This moth is not as brilliant as the first one and the pic not as good with the screen back ground but I did get the pic. Nature is just great. Everyone have a great weekend and I will post next Monday if I get a chance.

Life Story

Well how about a little about me. The story of how I meet my wife. The short version. And There she was!!!! The end

No really. Back in 1999 I was in high school dating a girl. We had been together for a while and her mom did not like me. In Sep 99 there was a hurricane named Floyd (If my mind serves me right). Floyd flooded the town that I hung out in. Well I would hang out with a crowd in town that was not from my high school. And on one of those faithful nights with the water still rising there was a girl brought to my friends house that I had never seen before. She was beautiful with that curly red hair. We hit it off and started talking. The reason she had been brought there was because they could not get to their friends house across the creek. After about 3 nights of me snicking a trip to town to see my new friend she told me if you get rid of the other girl I'm yours. That is all it took. The next morning I was on the phone breaking up. (yes I know that is the scum way out) but I was in love and charging 100% to my new girl. She was so perfect. We have been together ever since. We have good times and bad but they are always our times. We have 2 beautiful girls and really do have a great life.

I have this blog to get things off my chest and try to make my relanship stonger with my wife and I figured instead of always typing about the bad how about typing the good also.

Gone like my thoughts

Well the moth was gone. Oh well. I am drawing a blank this morning. Don't really know what to talk about. I have looked around to try to find some off the wall thing to photograph but at no luck. Maybe I will play the lottery tonight. I don't know. Why is Y sometimes considered a vowel. Why not make it a vowel all the time. they made Pluto a dwarf planet. They sent a rover to Mars. Some man took pictures of the earth with a camera and some balloons. But yet Y is stuck in limbo never really know its true identity.

Well me and the wife mended our fence. I hate when we get to the point like we where in. But now it is over. I had a morning quickie. Which is unusual. Probably the first one i have had in years I mean seriously years. So you can imagine I am on cloud 9. Everything is falling in to place this morning and it is just a beautiful day outside. Just a little note. (you will think I am crazy) There has been a pink and yellow moth at my back door for the past 3 mornings. But I have yet to take a picture of it. I know, a picture of a moth. But it is so cute. or whatever a manly thing about a moth would be. so if he is there when I get home from tee ball practice this afternoon I will take a shot and post it. I know, you are saying wow that Bigger has deep thoughts. not really I'm just weird. what is weird is I would never tell any one I know that I wanted to take a picture of a moth but here I feel that i can.

Gosh I'm a Loser

The Wekend

I hit the ground running this morning. Got a lot going on at work. Which is great. also my garden is looking great. I plan on planting quiet a bit more this coming up week end. Had a argument yesterday with my wife. I will tell my side but as you all know there are more than one side to every story.

I let wife sleep Sunday morning until 11:30 I got up with both kids about 8:30 which is not bad. My parents cooked lunch for us. I washed clothes and cleaned some while she slept. Then we went to town to get cleats for my daughter for her first tee ball practice. we went to tee ball practice we got back home at about 5:00. I have told my wife I wanted to work in the garden. she took the kids and went back to town to get my youngest daughter some medicine. I got to the shop about 5:30 worked in the garden and finished early. Then I started to work in the pecan trees. (We have a Pecan orchard we have to tend also) My wife and kids came back. Well my oldest daughter wanted to stay with me. No problem. But at 7:00 only 1 1/2 hours from when I started my wife was calling. she was pissed because we where not home yet. My house is only 100 yards from the orchard and I was almost done. It is hard to type all of this. basically our daughter has a 8:30 bed time on school nights. I did not get her home until 8:00. My wife made the comment that I always have to help my parents in the most inopportune time. well she Knew I wanted to work in the garden and what other time did I have yesterday. It just really pissed me off. Its not like I am out drinking or getting high or anything like that. I am basically working. Our orchard has potential to be my families and my sisters families retirement but my wife does not see it that way. As much as I love her she does know how to piss me off. Man I do feel Better

To any one who is religious will you say a prayer for my coworker. Her mother passed about 2 weeks ago and now her father has had a heart attack. Thanks

Quick Week

WOW. Is it Saturday. I think I just caught my breathe. This week has flown by. Busy Busy Busy. That is the only way I know how to explain it. Monday, at office trying to catch up from where I was out sick the week before. Tuesday, Day off went to an auction looking for a one row planter for my garden tractor. Did not find one worth buying. Wed, At office by myself all day, cohort was in the other office trying to help with there deals. Thursday, Trip to doctor with wife, we had a concern with her and was getting a second opinion. It went very well everything seems to be OK. Friday had oldest daughter at work with me. Then wife came to get her and daycare called and said baby had temp of 102.3. Wife carried her to hospital. ( We don't go there often but doc closes at 12 on Fridays and my wife use to work in the Er full time and now works there on pull. So we get back door service. In other words we get to avoid the wait) They gave baby Tylenol and a breathing treatment because she was wheezing again. She has child hood asthma. wife carried baby to grandma so she could carry oldest kid to dance rehearsal. I went and got baby. When I got there last night at 7:30 baby was in great shape. did not look sick at all. went home, went to bed, and now I am here. Sitting at my desk. It is a beautiful day. We have oldest daughter dance recital tonight, church inn the morning tee ball practice Sunday afternoon and then we start the week all over again. I will try to keep a daily update next week instead of a long post about the week.

Still Here

As it says I'm just real busy. was out last Thursday and Friday and in a different office wed. Just playing catch up

Tuesday, March 30, 2010


Well back at work again. I was here yesterday but my sales help was out. Had to carry the baby to the doc for a check up. Doc thinks she may have child hood asthma. But the check up went OK. So since i was out yesterday morning and also was my sale help I had to call the boss (also known as my Father). he opened for me. The day was hectic but was able to get some stuff done. I was full of anger yesterday morning but have calmed down today so this entry will not be as colorful as it could have been. I just could not take the time to type what I needed to especially in front of the boss. So any way I will get back to the grind.

Well another day at the office. Sure is beautiful outside. Maybe I will have good traffic and sell something. The lady at the grocery store told me to have a blessed day. That's a good way to start my day. LIFE IS GOOD

Lets Start Over

Wow has it really been that long since I posted. I have pulled up this page many times and gone blank as to what to write. I am going to try to start again just writing what is on my mind. I don't want to turn this into a bitch blog but will probably do a lot of rants and raves. I have friends but sometimes don't want to bother them with my bitching. So I hold it inside. Holding it inside causes me to have burst of anger. A lot of times my wife is the one to catch my burst. Maybe with me posting on here I can let some of my anger out. My wife and Kids are my most treasured thing so to stop my anger in front of them would be a blessing. Don't get me wrong I am not a physical abuser I don't beat nobody. I just say what is on my mind and a lot of times what is on my mind should not be said.
