Well, Christy had her second book signing last Wednesday, and it went rather well. It didn't go as well as the first, in part because we had less time to get it out there. But the good news about it was that the only person Christy knew who bought a book was Mom (or so I understand, I had school so I couldn't be there, what a bummer). She sold 11 of 15 books in 2 hours. Not to bad. She also had her first interview by a newspaper, it was the weekly Berthoud newspaper, so it wasn't a huge thing, but it was a good start, and good practise for her. I'll post the article once I have it, or I'll make Christy put it up.

So I was camping this weekend and as the sun went down the racoons came out. As many as 4 at a time were running all around the campsite looking for food. One, Ricky we'll call him, was able to get away with some garlic. He hauled it up into a tree hiding it on a limb somewhere. So the next morning, I went looking for it. Never was able to find it, however, Ricky was back wanting more. Upset that my Dutch Oven meal was flavorless (lacking the garlic) I still went "out on a limb" for the little rascal and fed him some carrots.

This was supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, football season. Today that most wonderful time got squashed. UT-45 vs. OU-35. BUT, I was there to witness it first hand. Had a good time and for those that saw the game know it was a great game, Oklahoma just didn't come out as the best team on this day. Beyond that, there is so much tradition with this rivalry. For years the two teams meet at a half way point to play, happens to be at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas during the HUGE Texas State Fair. The stadium and the fair was jam-packed with burnt orange and crimson that really ends up being a massive tail gate party from early morning until late evening. I must say, if ever you have the oppertunity to attend this event yourself, it is well worth making the effort. Maybe I'll go back for more next year, but for now I can check the Red River Rivalry off my Bucket List!
From my seat about 45 mins to kick off.
Decided to go over to the UT side and taunt the orange cows!
Part of half time, a look to the North West, catching the top of the Dallas skyline. Does that say TEXAS??OK, so we may have lost, but seeing the 7 National Title Dates seemed to ease the pain a little. (The Texas Semi had only 4 years of National Title on their rig....)
Looking into the Cotton Bowl from the top of the Western Hemisphere's largest Farris Wheel. I can see where my seat was from here! What a day, I'm ready for bed.

Well, last night Christy and I went to a special performance of Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert by the Colorado Symphany Orchrestra. Even though I am not a gamer, it was very entertaining. This is an example of what was shown, infact it was the 2nd encore that we got. Hope you enjoy it, even though it was so much better in person.

Since I've started getting a little more creative in the kitchen over the last 6-12 months, almost everyone who's partaken of my "creations" has insisted I start my own business. It's gotten bad enough now that people are getting mad at me that I haven't done it yet! PEOPLE, these things take TIME (not to mention money)!
But I started a little website so if people ask me about what I can do I can send them to it. It's in the verrry beginning stages but here it is:
Of course I will be adding more as I have more to add.

Well, like most of us it's been a long time since I posted, and I thought I might update what Christy and I have been up to these past few months.
and we had to celebrate Christy's book hmm, I think Christy enjoyed the surprise. I think someone enjoyed the cake. and I think Darcey enjoyed it to. Oh, i think someone loves her sister.
So, that was fun. We then took a weekend off work and went to the Renaissance Festival. It was a hot day, as expected, and lots of fun.
Christy smiling at the camera
Here is Ruben (Christy's bro), Toni (a good friend of ours), and Rachel (Christy's little sis)
And Christy would get mad at me if I didn't put one of me in here.
Christy had a lot of fun, including making costumes to attend in.
He both got our fishing licenes and did a little fishing. But the fishing wasn't all that good. Though, as I've heard a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work. We did keep one to eat, and it was delicious.
Here was one catch, can you tell what kind of fish? Needless to say, we didn't cook this one.
Here was another one, it was early in the day so I tossed it back. It was fun wading, you could easily wade all the way across the lake cause the deepest it got was 3.5 feet.
A last pic before leaving the camp site, we must have been getting a little smelly.
And it looks like Christy is ready for a nice bath.
Well, Labor day weekend we took a little trip to GA for a book festival. It was hot, and the GPS system we tried out sent us in circles a few times, but it was a fun, learning experience. We didn't sell too many books, but I think it was a good way to help Christy learn to promote her own book and was well worth it.
YA!! She Sold a Book!!! and she's signing it for the guy!
Christy's out working the crowd!
There she is with the book!
And this was our plane home, we pulled out the camera to get a pic of the pilot washing the window, but we were too slow. It was kinda funny looking.
Well we made it home. And now Christy is in Germany for her best friend's wedding. And she's having a blast.
She does have her first book signing coming up here shortly, on OCt 18th at the Barnes and Noble at the promenade shops at Centerra. It should be fun.
So that's a good update for now I'll try and do better myself at posting so I don't have to put these long posts. Hope to hear from all you to!!!
