29th

Hey, everybody.  Hope everyone's weekend was as good as mine.  Be sure to join us tomorrow for Music to Make Write to featuring Elena Solodow.

Saturday was my 29th birthday.  My wife and I spent the weekend in Manhattan, KS.  We took in The Cats vs. #21 Mizzou (we won,) ate a ton of Chinese food, and perused the local shopping areas.  We were going to go out to the the college bar district and drink "soda" and act like we were younger than we are, but decided to get some rest and turn in early.  The bars get loud, and I really didn't like the whole idea of going out.













And if you believe that... I've got some acreage by the ocean here in Nebraska that we HAVE GOT to talk about.

  2. Glad your team won! But is it just me, or did you turn into a bear? ;)

  3. The bear letting you try on his head--pretty sweet! Letting you try on his head in the bathroom...ummm. I'm just trying to imagine the conversation :)

    Sounds like you had a fun birthday. Enjoy the last year of your 20s!

    Eh, you're still a spring chicken, as far as I'm concerned.

    Looks like you did some fun test tube experiments too. I didn't know you like chemistry. With beer. Ahem.

    me: let me wear the head in a picture or I will beat you up with my brute physical strength.
    polar bearman: alright just not in the face!

    -Lydia- More like a spring polar bear (see what I did there.)

  6. Happy birthday and can't wait to hear the story behind the guy in the bear suit. At least it wasn't Nicolas Cage.

  7. What is it with guys in bear suits? We just couldn't get away from the "grizzly" in West Yellowstone. =)

  8. Why was he using a gun? He has claws, for God's sake! Jeez, in America even bears are lazy.

  9. Chris - Happy 29th. That was the very best year for me - the year I met my husband. The year before the dreaded 30. Which, believe me, is nothing to dread. I'm two decades past 29 now, but what fond memories. Keep making them. ;)

  10. Did the bear win? And more importantly, did he feel bad about it if he did?

  11. Happy Birthday, Chris!
    I can honestly say I've never played a hunting video game with a polar bear before. At least You can check that off your bucket list.
