CSI: Junkie



All right, I'll admit it...I'm a CSI junkie! Which one? All of them! Monday night, Wednesday night and Thursday night...when I am able I watch them. I love the shows and story lines, and yes the characters. Especially the lead guys.

Now in the beginning when there was just CSI: Crime Scene Investigation...well Gil Grissom was "da man"...he had a suave' about himself (not a Rico Suave!), just a suave'. Anyhoo, as CSI: Miami hit the scene you have Horatio Caine who is the head honcho. Now Horatio always seems to be standing sideways and has some very corny one liner’s, but they've grown on me over the years. But, still Grissom was the coolest in my book.

Then CSI: New York was born from the other two...at first I didn't like it, it seemed kinda of dark to me. But after awhile it grew on me. The man in charge is Det. Mac Taylor (played by Gary Sinise...you'll remember him as Lieutenant Dan).

For sometime I have thought that Gil Grissom from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ruled as "top dog" of the head honchos of all of the CSI's. But as of last night...the tide has turned! I now believe Det. Mac Taylor to be my favorite. I like his humbleness, yet assertiveness in his character. Grissom has gotten a weird to me and Horatio stands sideways too much! Oh well just my opinion.


If you are a fan of CSI...who is your favorite? I can't wait until CSI: Richmond, KY. makes its d├ębut!

Lazy Sunday afternoon...

How's this for a lazy Sunday afternoon. This is one of Sparks' favorite places to be lazy...it's kinda like her throne.

Gotta try this out!

Okay I don't like to be a "copy cat blogger", but this is a VERY addictive game that I got from Marko's blog. Highest score so far...25.

Go here.

A new guest in our house

Actually we've had a new guest "on" our house as opposed to "in". Here's a pic of our guest...it's a robin who decided to make a nest right outside our bathroom window. I guess it was about 2 1/2 weeks ago when the nest was first being built...a really amazing thing to watch.

So we have been waiting patiently for the young robins to hatch...Holly and I looked up on the internet how long it would take...40 days! There are three eggs in the nest and this momma bird is probably tired of flapping away every time we walk in the bathroom. Oh well...she's the one who decided to build the nest on our bathroom window, not me! Anyhoo...we'll keep ya posted on the day of the hatching. Any suggestions for names?

What to do?

So it's Monday...and I got the day off. Actually our entire staff has the day off after a busy Easter Sunday. What are my plans for my day off? Well, I had pondered a couple of things...maybe go to the driving range and whack a few golf balls, after all I do have permission...maybe just be lazy and lie in bed the whole day (didn't sleep well last night so I could justify that one!)...maybe some yard work, clean out the garage...perhaps go to my outer sanctuary "Barnes and Noble" and get lost somewhere in some books...hmmmmmm...what to do...I think I'm going to clean the house a bit and then work on some school stuff (got two test this week!) What an exciting guy I am.

I'll give you the all the details later.

I got permission!

One thing that I love about the spring weather is the fact golf season has begun (at least in my eyes). This past weekend Phil Mickleson won the Master's...one of the great majors in golf. I got a chance to watch the action a little each day. I love it! I used to think, "how could anybody waste their time playing golf let alone watching it?" Back in 1995 a friend gave me an old set of clubs...I went out and was hooked! Not only to I enjoy playing golf, but I really dig watching it too.

Here in a few weeks is the JP Invitational. It's my annual golf outing made up of ole college and church buddies. For three days we: play golf, eat, watch Sports Center, play cards...and then the cycle starts over again. What a great weekend.

I was worried that I may not be able to play this year because of my knee and rehab. Today I went to my 2nd follow up with my doc...he said things looked good, gave me some new orders...I then asked in a joking way..."so when can I go play golf?" Thinking he would give me the "what-choo talkin' about Jeff!" He proceeded to say...go ahead have at it! He gave me permission. Once again...I am stoked!

32 Days!


32 days are left in my last semester at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I see a very BRIGHT light at the end of the tunnel...I am stoked. Only 5 more test, 2 more book reviews and a handful of forums to respond to. Did I tell you I'm stoked! Yes, I am so stoked! How many times can I use the word "stoked" in this stokin' post? So far it looks like I've used the word "stoked" six stokin' times...make that seven.

Opening Day and etc.

I'm kinda bummin' a bit today...actually it started yesterday. I had planned a Spring Break Mission trip for our youth this week. Going to Camp Willow Falls in Blue Ridge, GA. (a great place!) to work and serve. 33 of our youth and youth leaders left yesterday, but I had to stay behind because of my knee. I know it's the right thing to do, but I'm bummin' because I hate to miss out on these kinds of experiences...and I really love being with my teenagers. They are in good hands and I know they will have an outstanding week.

But on the other side of things I get to stay home with Holly and Bryan (that's always a plus!). Bryan is with the in-laws until tomorrow...we sure do miss him. I'm going to take a few days off and hang with my boy.

TODAY was opening day of the baseball season...the Cincinnati Reds are my team and they got their butts handed to them by the Cubs this afternoon. Oh well...162 more games to go! I'm a big baseball fan...we'll go see the Red-legs play several times this year, it's always a great time. I even play in a fantasy baseball league with several ole college buddies and friends; we call our league "Team Joboo" from the all time classic baseball movie...Major League.
