Time of the New Year

As I reflect on this past year, I would like to count my blessings. My health, my friends, my family, and my savior. My Savior Jesus Christ, has provided me with all the blessings a person could ask for, when I am away from my family, he provides me with friends, when I am away from all earthly friends and family, he keeps me company. These are the things I am thankful for, what are you thankful for this past year? How long has it been since you counted your blessings?

With a new year quickly approaching I wish each of you, my loyal readers, and my new readers, a prosperous and happy new year.

Christmas with Family of Tronster

Christmas, what a great time of year. This is the time of year we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Remember that we can't have Christmas without Christ. So don't send any Xmas signs, go ahead and write out Christmas.

I spent the weekend with family of Tronster in SC. The weather is warm, kind of reminded me of Christmas is Florida. Not like last year when I spent all of December in Brazil. I had a wonderful time with the family, and ate way to much. I was ready to bust on my return trip. A funny thing about visiting a small town. On the return trip tonight, it was rainy and chilly, about 50 degrees for most of the trip. As I was approaching the DC area, I came over a peak of the interstate and saw a bunch of red taillights. I thought to myself, there are more cars on this stretch of highway than there are in all of Marlboro County South Carolina. Funny the differences between small towns and major metro areas.

Now it is time for sleep and recovery, so I can return to work and make more money for the fun things in life. I hope each of you had a very Merry Christmas.

Another Weekend

Great weekend for me, how about you? I helped a friend install his engine. Yea the entire engine. Its not running yet, but the engine is no longer located in the yard. We spent all day Saturday working on it, and got it in, then on Sunday, I am recovering from manual labor. I also got to use a plasma cutter this weekend. That was fun, burned a hole right through some scrap metal. Pretty cool.

Thats about all for now, I get to go to work tomorrow. Yea

Going Places.....NOT

Moved to this area for the chance to travel the world. As you can tell from some of my previous posts, I've been a lot of places. However, I've been just waiting around lately. Its ok though. I am making friends and catching up on the things I like to do. Attending church and taking pictures, and working on jeeps. Speaking of jeeps, just bought some new parts for mine, they should be here next week, maybe I can get them installed before christmas. Kirby's jeep is still without engine, we hope to fix that this week end. At least get the mounts welded into place.

A friend came to Casa de Tronster Monday night and fixed me a great dinner. Steak and veggies. Best home cooked meal I have had in a long time. (Well since thanksgiving anyway)

Christmas is around the corner and I should be shopping, but I am not. Oh well. Maybe in an hour or so I will brave the crowds and take care of that oversight.

Speaking of Christmas, what do my readers want for Christmas. Post your dream gift here, maybe santa will read. (Don't ask for world peace, that is outside is area of expertise)

Random Thoughts

Cingular has a great dropped call commercial. They may have the least dropped calls on any nationwide network, but mine still seemed to get dropped.

When cruising on the interstate at 5 mph over the speed limit, why do some feel its important to flash their lights for you to move, so they can continue to break the law?

If you choose to work 40 miles from home, don't complain about the drive, it was your choice.

If you want a car thats "green" thats fine, I want one thats fast.

Poker is not a sport!!!!

Happy Anniversary to parents of Tronster

Gators Win!!!

Best darn football game I've seen all year. The Florida Gators bring the SEC championship back to Gainesville. With a stellar defensive, forcing mistakes out of Arkansas and winning the game. Not that the Razorbacks didn't help the Gators with a fumbled punt return. What heart displayed by both teams.

Go Gators.

Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner

Merry Christmas!!!

There you go, I firmly stand beside my Merry Christmas, and all of you wanting a Happy Holiday, wait for new years, you can have that one.

Thanksgiving has come and gone, Tronster spent the time with the parents @ the family zoo. Fun was had by all. My mom and sister wanted to do dinner, but they didn't. Mom made four desserts, and I brought one form crackle barrel. Hey I don't cook. Dad fixed the turkey under excellent supervision of Grandma. Sister of Tronster helped Tronster digest the feast. Grandma brought the fix'ns and we enjoyed time together. Then the Cowboys win. A great day.

Tronster also started his Christmas shopping, by taking care of the Grandparents and Parents in one trip to Sam's Club and two stops at Lowes.
