Trent's first 'TOUCHDOWN'

Trent running for yardage.
He also plays defense - Take him down hard.............
What a great one handed catch.......
After the catch he takes off for the GOAL LINE.
Almost across the GL --- That guy behind me is to close for comfort.
He tackles me but I drag him over the GOAL LINE.
Here is tough DUDE.
My team celebrates with me.
Us "OKLAHOMA BOYS" Love Football :)

Battle for Penn Cove

Let me tell you about the Battle for Penn Cove. In 1845 two adventuress Salty Dogs known as Cpt Whidbey & Cpt Jack had a shootout that lasted 2 days.
The 2 ships - on the R Cpt Jack and L Cpt Whdbey. It started one foggy morning.
Cpt Jack had the lighter smaller but quicker ship.
Cpt Whidbey could not maneuver as well as Cpt Jack but had a very strong hull.
How the heck did those sailboats get in this pic?
Cpt Jack got off the first cannon shot BOOM.
Cpt Whidbey fired back BOOM BOOM.
OK what the heck is going on - I am PG and need to start nesting soon.
Jack fires a long shot - Looks like he is on target. No he missed.
Cpt whidbey is sailing towards Cpt Jack to ram him.
Another cannon BLAST from Cpt Jack. But Cpt Whidbey keeps advancing.
Looks like Cpt Whidbey is going to ram the small ship.
What is this - both ships are sailing into the sunset - maybe that should be sailing off into the RAIN. Peace - the Battle is over and that is why we have Penn Cove Mussels today. THE END :)

Things have been happening so quickly around here lately.... both kids are in high school... with one being a senior next year and the other one learning to drive... 

I just celebrated my 2 year anniversary at the clinic as a doctor of physical therapist and I have patients requesting me by name.....  nice.  Very nice.  :)

I gave up online dating only to find a man, one that I have known for about 2 years already, that I am certain that God meant for me as all roads of my past.... all my experiences in life, have prepared me for him. 

We will be married on Saturday. 

I am blessed with so many important and loved people coming to celebrate with me...
Those that know of my struggles, successes, and losses....
Those that gave me hugs, words of encouragement, and gentle admonishment when needed. 
Those that stuck by me through all of my ups and downs and while they may have been cursing me under their breath, they never left my side. 
Those that I would do anything for and drop everything to support them.....
Those that surprised the heck out of me by letting me know that they will be attending the celebration. 
Thank you from the bottom of my heart... thank you my dearest family and friends.... 

I. am. so. blessed. 

I thank the our Heavenly Father every day for the blessings he has bestowed on me... both the good things and the lessons he has taught me....

I am so looking forward to the next chapter of my life.  :)
