One of these is not like the others

Can you find my bike? 🙂

My church started a new series this weekend called “Road Trip.”  And part of the new series was we invited all bikers to bring their bikes, hogs, whatever you want to call them to service, and then after the 11:30am service on Sunday everybody would go on a Sunday afternoon bike ride.

After seeing people bring their bikes Saturday night, I knew I had to bring my 1982 Honda Express moped up to be a part of the festivities.  I think it fit in perfectly, don’t you?

Echo Conference Notes

About a month ago I was at one of the best conferences I’ve ever been at.  The Echo Conference was incredible and just what I needed.  I’ve come home from some conferences just beat up and overwhelmed with the massive amounts of information and “swag” that was thrown my way.  Not this time, and that’s a good thing.  It was inspiring, informative, and encouraging.  Here are some of my notes (not exhaustive)

Donald Miller

Mark Batterson

Tim Stevens

Todd Wagner

Cameron Ware

Brad Abare

GREAT conference!  Planning for 2009 already.

Yearbook Yourself

If you haven’t been to YearBookYourself.com yet…what are you waiting for?  This is a new breed of “interactive” websites that allow you to upload a headshot of yourself, and see what YOUR yearbook picture would have looked like if you had shown up for picture day in 1956, 1960, 1974, 1988, or 1999 (and tons of years in between).  Here are some of my beautiful shots:

Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful. 🙂

Things my dog is scared of

I have a 10 month old puppy named Zoey that we just absolutely love.  Zoey is half Lab, half Golden Retreiver.  She’s about 55 lbs, so she’s not huge, but not small either.

The thing about Zoey is that she’s a scaredy-dog.  Not a “scaredy-cat”, but very similar.  Here are some things our dog is terrified of:

1.  The vacuum – This is understandable – most vacuums scare me.

2.  My Gorilla mask – I have a monkey mask that I bought a few years ago.  Just the mere sight of this mask sends my dog into crazy-land.  So, it makes it a fun toy.

3.  Ghosts – we live in a 90 year old home, and the chance that it’s haunted is high (just kidding).  But there is something in the back corner of our yard that drives my dog nuts.  She gets the crazy razorback and barks like a real dog (which is rare for her).  We never see anything or hear anything – but the weird thing is that in the back corner is the old building that the doctor who lived in our house in the 20s and 30s used as a home office.  People were born there, and people died in that room.  Rumor is Dr. Saye’s father died in our house too.  Creepy.

4.  The blender –  My dog hates our blender.  No – not when it’s on and really loud.  Rather, the actual blender itself makes my dog want to pee itself.  I actually chased Zoey around the house holding the base of the unplugged blender in my hand.  What is wrong with me dog? (And some of you will ask what is wrong with me!?)

5.  The Vacuum bag – going back to number 1, my dog hates the vacuum.  Not only does that scare her, but the plastic part of the vacuum that holds all of the sucked up material (formerly known as the “bag”) scares my dog. Why?  It’s only a clear plastic container attached to the vacuum.  Again – I know she is terrified of this because I chased her around the house with it in my hand.  I’m horrible.

6.  Zoey – my dog is scared of herself in the mirror.  I won’t go any further than that.  And no – I haven’t chased her around the house with a mirror…yet.

7.  Power Tools – scaredy-cat.  She hates the sight of any power tool.  Drill – check.  Cordless screwdriver – check.  Power saw – check.  Weedeater – check.

Those are some things that we’ve discovered in a little over 6 months that my dog is scared of.  I’m sure there will be more.
