Well, the tally for September is in.

All the ballots have been counted.

All the miles have been done.

In September, I ran 96 miles.

That's a personal best!


That puts me at 740 1/2 miles so far this year.

My goal: 1000 miles by December 31.

YouTube - Fast Clapping

I never get enough of clapping.
I dream that after I finish preaching, the entire congregation will clap like this guy.
Not for me, of course, but for God!

Birthday Girl!

Yay! Mary finally turns... uh, am I allowed to say this?
Of course - because no one will believe that she is only 43. Wait, that didn't come out right.
No one will believe she's already 43 - everyone will say "you can't be a day over 35!"
Uh, I think I'm in trouble.
Happy Birthday Mary!

Ty and I

I know, poor English - but it rhymes!

So, next week, ABC and the most Christian Show on Television will be here in Portage. I've signed up to help.

I said "I'd give my right arm to help build a house with you guys, but that would make it kind of hard to keep hold of the hammer."

I hope they let me help!

94 Degrees

Well, the tub is now 94 degrees. Starting to feel warm - maybe even tonight we'll jump in!
Another 5 degrees would be nice.


Well, the hot tub is nearly complete.
We moved in at the beginning of September and after unloading the trucks, I filled the tub.
It leaked.
After filling it 7 times and emptying it 7 times (each with a new "idea" I had that I thought would solve the problem) - I had nearly given up.
Then, Gary - the former owner called and asked how things were going.
We said: well, great, except for the leak. He said "I'll be there tomorrow."
We worked all morning, and discovered the culprit - and he then hired a company to come and fix it. He paid. That's nice - THANKS GARY!
And today they are here fixing it - it's filling right now!
Maybe tonight we can finally have our "hot tub welcome home party" with the girls.
My girls. Not just any girls!
Yeha and Yay!
This Saturday, I will write my sermon from the hot tub. Booyah!

New Blog

Hi Friends and faithful readers. Reader. I'm sorry for my woeful lack of posts.
From here on, this blog will be updated (really!) - on what's happening in the Crydo-fam life and what I'm wrestling with and praying about.
I've begun a sister blog that tells of the happenings at Portage Free Methodist Church.
So - check it out!
