When you absolutely, positively need something to take 3 weeks to be delivered when it should take one, use the United States Postal Service.

First college class in 30 years is in the books. A on my final, A in the class. Two weeks off, then on to the next one.

Thirty years ago, as poor college students, some dates were nothing more than ice cream and video games. Today, a quick date night filled with ice cream and those same video games. And I love her more now than I did then. ❤️

There is a new member of our family. Say hello to Stella Harmony Turner. You can see she is totally not spoiled already. ❤️

First #lacrosse game of the season today, and our kiddo had a hat trick and the game winner! #lax

Today my boys got to do something they may never have a chance to do again, unless they move to more northern climes: play pond hockey. In Texas.

Courtesy of my buddy, Jake, and because it’s true.

A metal music care package arrived today from @MessengerMetal. Looking forward to the back catalog, since the latest, In To Win, is fantastic fun.

First @DallasStars game of the season in the books. Fun times visiting with friends, team fought back from a two-goal deficit to send it to OT and shootout, just needed a better ending. #GoStars

Been listening to my Rock of Ages (musical/movie) inspired playlist, and when hearing “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” it never fails to make me think of this version: youtu.be/8WfRumrHI…

This is an extremely #firstworldproblem, but it’s kind of crappy of Apple to start AppleCare coverage on a product I haven’t received yet.

No Country for Old Men is on one of the Showtimes, and that’s way more entertaining than anything being shown at halftime for the Super Bowl.

You know, if I were a betting man, a horrendous defensive holding call on a Tom Brady tip-drill interception that keeps a drive alive might have me thinking some folks were in the tank for a Bucs win, considering all the potential history being made should Tampa Bay prevail.

Hey look, Tony Romo finally made it to a Super Bowl!

This is one of those amusing regional colloquialisms I shall never tire of, having grown up in south Louisiana where they are called what they are: liquor stores. twitter.com/impudente…

Ever since I learned about Electric Jesus (@ejesusfilm)–and thanks for that, @tonywoodlief–easily once a week seeing something about the movie makes me think of this song: youtu.be/yGhUo8d9_…

Dale Thompson’s vocals absolutely KILL.

Great mail week. My @ejesusfilm roadie shirt arrived (when’s the tour start, guys?) and today from Sweden landed two copies of the Metal Bible. A perfect pairing.

Getting mail from overseas will never get old.

Thirty-five years ago today, we lost the Challenger and its crew. I stood in the library between classes at my high school, mouth agape, watching the footage with several classmates.

“Roger, go at throttle up” forever seared into our memory. #totouchthefaceofGod

There’s a new episode of The Empowered Parent Podcast out today, and we’re going over the basics of attachment.

I could be watching the @DallasStars season opener, but since @FOXSportsSW and @FrontierCorp can’t play nice with one another…

Unexpected find at the used bookstore yesterday. I don’t think I’ve read the original trilogy since high school. Maybe one other time, but it’s been at least two decades if so. I’ve never read books 4 and 5.
