I'm FREE! But on parole. I've been released from MDA Lockup for Johnson County at Texas Roadhouse in Coralville---thanks to the $615.00 rasied as of 2 pm today(Wednesday 11.20)! Thanks to all those who helped me get out of the big (road)house by donating to my bail. We surpassed the goal of $500.00 with flying colors(minus the orange jumpsuit) and All money benefits the Muscular Dystrohy Association. But, we don't have to stop. You can still give to a great cause and make a secure online donation by clicking my JAILBIRD PAGE.

*I appreciate that makers of bottled water are using less and less plastic in the manufacturing of their bottles because it's better for the environment, but have you notices the plastic is getting so thin, the bottles have trouble standing on their own?
*The Minnesota Vikings are trying my loyalty these days with their mess of a quarterback situation. Christian Ponder? Matt Cassell? Josh Freeman? They might as well spin the "Wheel-O-QB" to see who starts the next game.
*I'm not afraid to honk at other drivers when they make a mistake, especially if it means a possible crash. But why is it that they give me the dirty look like I'VE done something wrong? A girl flicked me off the other night even though she was the one who didn't signal and turned right in front of me. So, I honked at her, but she wants to make me out to be the bad guy!?! Yeah, you're right lady, I just go around randomly honking at people for NO reason!
*New TV shows I'm into: Hostages on CBS, Betrayal on ABC, Mom on CBS(it's grown on me)
*Returning TV shows I've found new interest in: The Big Bang Theory on CBS, Two Broke Girls on CBS, Revenge on ABC
*TV show I'm anxiously waiting to return: Mike & Molly on CBS
*Overrated TV show: Scandal on ABC

My Wife, Bonnie, and I took the kids to Las Vegas on vacation this summer. Here are some more pics from our trip to the desert. We ate at Hooters one day for lunch. Stopped at Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar & Grill" for photo opps. Took in the Fremont Street Experience. And only looked at (did not swim with) the sharks at Mandalay Bay. Viva Las Vegas!
