My Wonderful One

My wonderful one

I cannot believe that it has been a year since I went out on my first date with my girlfriend, Kimberly. I can say without hesitation that the last year has been one of the happiest years in my life, and I owe it all to her. Thank you, my wonderful one, my love, my best friend, Kimberly, and Happy Anniversary!

Dropping the hammer

A great song that reminds me of my Dad.

The Irony

The Irony

When my girlfriend and I were in St. Louis, we decided to visit the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. While we were walking there, I noticed this establishment called, “Optimist International.” I pointed it out to my girlfriend, who thought it would be the height of hilarity for me to stand in front of it for a picture, in light of the fact that I am a borderline realist / cynic, and one of my nicknames is “Cold Rain Partain.”

The Basilica of Saint Louis, King of France, formerly the Cathedral of Saint Louis, and colloquially the Old Cathedral, was the first cathedral west of the Mississippi River and until 1845 the only parish church in the city of St. Louis, Missouri. – Wikipedia
