A Day of Reflection

Beverly and I are going this morning to sign our wills.  We had one made years ago that I have never felt comfortable about because it was kind of a "do-it-yourself" will.  Interesting how things like that remind us of our mortality.

A year ago today, my father-in-law passed away.  I have really missed him.  He had a great impact on my life.  I learned so much from him.  And I hope I can leave such a legacy of memories as he did.  I can still hear his laugh, and the way he cleared his throat.  My guess is that he has convinced a lot of people in heaven to become Democrats.  

I think we can officially say that the Spurs' dynasty is done.  I hope the Mavs don't get the big head after easily doing away with a team that is too old to finish -- and missing one of their key players.  It does seem that the Mavs are peaking at the right time, but Denver is going to be a different test all together.

I'm not a huge "Idol" fan these days.  I guess I've gotten a little tired of it.  But I do have my favorites -- Danny and Kris.  I don't know what it is about Adam, but Beverly and I both feel there is a dark, evil presence around him.  And the high-pitched squeal is really getting old (actually, I guess I never did like it).  I have a feeling he might win, though.  However, a lot of people really DON'T like him.  So once it gets down to only 2 or 3 contestants, that could work against him.

Papa was an amazing man of God.

Make sure you give me more than Jonathan or Jenny. I deserve it. :)

Rick, is Josh the humble son? His post cracked me up.

I hope you include my foundation, Jeff Wants a Mercedes, in your will. It will go to a great cause.

Josh, Funny but Jonathan told me the same thing last week.

Jeff, with what I leave -- it would probably have to be a Matchbox car.
