Re: Welcome to SATURDAY @ the MSC

All the great shows I've seen from one end of the spectrum to the other, sitting on a plane with Jerry Jeff while he sings and plays the mandolin outshines them all.

Sail on.

Re: 2020 Ravens

In a world that has gone insane, I can deal with, a world that has gone stupid, I struggle. I say it all the time, but it doesn't make it any less true. Bub continues to elevate, not just as ballplayer, but a young man. I feel like this something I am doing to brag on myself, and I hope it's clear t...

Re: 2020 Ravens

Amazing transformation, Jerred. Too funny that your name is based on "Dallas". :lol: Make sure you document all those stories for future generations. LOL Thanks, I've been trying to record all these stories, my grandparents, my parents and mine. Too the important stuff, Bub had a night, last night....

Re: 2020 Ravens

To try and tie all of this together, I ignored the great inspiration around. Whether it was to be successful in business or to be successful in life. To give the next generation what you did not. We all have been so bloody complacent. I accepted the fact that I was going to morbidly obese for the sh...

Part 2: The Chuck-ster Charles, Chuck, Charlie, Chas - My mother's father. Chuck didn't grow up with much more than John did. More stable family environment, both parents, several brothers. Education level about the same. Chuck was drafted, went to the Pacific for the Navy, I don't think he quite th...

Re: 2020 Ravens

I come on here and make rants about poor performances from the Ravens and the coaches, which are much, much tamer than what I tell my parents after some games. If I leave no other legacy on this planet I need to share why I am the way I am, why I am who I am, why I feel the way I feel. This is going...

Re: 2020 Ravens

Whoa, Bub has really grown up! Glad to see them playing, so many activities have been cancelled by us. Where's Miss Ryanne? Okay, yes, he has first off. It's amazing how much they have grown, he's a TEENAGER now. :pirate: :lol: I'm going to go into a deep dive on my next post, because they were jus...

Re: 2020 Ravens

This is what I live for right here, this one of the best pictures I have taken all season so far, and it will always be one of the best pictures I have ever taken. He joined the team last season, he's gone to school with the boys since kindergarten. I only really knew him by the name. I haven't had ...

2020 Ravens

If I'm lucky it will be midnight on June 15, 2020 by the time I finish this post. I have a lot of thought running through my head and if I can only get them down on "paper". So much of the time I do not want to say anything, because I think it's, for lack of a better word, stupid, or maybe people do...

Re: 2019 Football/Baseball/Volleyball

I want to make a reply to this because I live for these pictures. It's Friday, it's cold as hell outside, I got my headphones on listening to music and Free by Zac Brown and Jimmy is playing and it absolutely perfect as I look at them. Have to preface this one. The catcher for the other team hit our...

2019 Football/Baseball/Volleyball

Pictures are processing before they are uploading and I just have to vent. I try my level best to be my best. To try and not get this worked up about things, but damnit, when you play by the rules set by everyone else and no one else follows them, it's just a real kick to the junk. All summer we dea...

Great topic!
You are hero 8)
I was 250 pounds. Currently 140.

It was calorie counting, plain and simple and planner for meal prepping. No special diets. No particularly heavy exercise. I just watched what I ate. Lost 110 lbs in about a year and a half.
That is incredible. Amazing work!

Re: 2019 Ravens

Without giving up too many of my secrets, whenever I do a cover photo I try to make it special every season, this year I went with baseball game tickets. It's a task, nothing, I am not up to, but it takes a little time to make for every game, I was ahead of the game for this weekend. Whatever. https...

2019 Ravens

*Disclaimer* I might go a little off on this, because everything was a perfect S**T storm for this weekend, it's not the most important weekend of baseball season, but probably the biggest. So I am going to jump around a bit because I have pictures in Lightroom before I can upload. The first tournam...

Re: HEALTHY LIVING

How did I miss this update? Congratulations, Jerred! And don't forget to keep us updated on Bub and Ryanne. LOL I will do a big update, because IT IS SUNDAY, and I am processing a half a set of pictures and we are not playing right now. I hate to tease, but I will post a big Ravens update in the Of...

Re: Photo Op!!

The Ravens had the lead, but that game was out of reach for their opponents. Bub came up to bat, working a full count, the umpire called the third ball, four. After some discussion Bub was sent back to the plate. The tension mounted in the stands. His mother's was nervous, everyone else had faith. E...

Re: HEALTHY LIVING

This winter has been brutal. Have not been able to do anything outside, snow and if it's not snow, it's melted snow, then mud, then Ice, then more snow. The last time I ran outdoors was technically an indoor run. I looked ahead and it looks like, finally, temperatures are going to improve and maybe ...
