15,640lbs and New Kicks

  So these posts are going to be coming at you a bit out of order. Not a huge deal, but just in case we get to my ride blog and you think to yourself WTF? This happened way before he got new shoes, why are we only hearing about this now. Through the joys of time management, I’m trying...

15,330 Days and a Few More

This Guy has been keeping us busy… @RoRoFromMexico on Instagram. Hello? Is this thing on <taps microphone>? So, um, I’ve been gone for a while… Did you miss me? During this little hiatus I passed my 15,330rd day on ol’ Mother Earth and it has become clear to me that slipping in my health now will make it much more...

New Addition!

RODRIGO catching some zzz’s after a big morning…   EXCITING NEWS FROM THE HILL! @SavannahJessie and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome RODRIGO to the family!

Eating Sandwiches, Not The Fun Kind

@SarahBassels and I post Sandwich Saturday (August 22) – I needed a night off. Bigtime. Oh, I forgot to mention that we are currently undergoing major renovations at work and as a result, the IT Boys (@phillyk007 and I) have been doing our best impression of ‘2 Guys and a Truck’ moving company. It has been less than pleasant. Oh,...

Sometimes Everything is a Challenge…

It hurt to move… Friday (August 7) – Everybody faces them, you know those little hurdles that life unexpectedly puts in your way in the hopes that you will pack it in and call it a day. The situations where You (as in Me) are expected to remain calm or things escalate (for those that know me, I live with...
