  • DOWN AND DIRTY
  • Vacation is the best medicine

    Recently, I traveled to Tennessee for the July 4th holiday to see many of my family members that I had lost touch with. I come from a huge family with my great grandmother having 16 children and my grandmother having six children.
    It had probably been 10 years since I had seen most of these people. My Uncle Robbie always has a big get together on the lake.
    This is the first year I had ever been. My family is rowdy, loud and can roll with the best of them and I love every minute of it. They are mine whether they like it or not.

  • Going, going, gone fishing!

    I just flipped the calendar over and bam, it hit me that it is July already!
