This week’s story is about a very special person in my life. First, I want to thank Bob and Lisa Hale for introducing me to Kristi. I’m not sure what she did that made them want to subject her to meeting me, but it worked out great for me so I’m okay with it. We met at a Hillcrest football game, and my first impression was, “She is way too good looking for me!” But...

I am pretty sure a lot of people would tell you the best part of the Super Bowl is the food. Well, since I am a member of Raider nation, this has been my favorite part of the Super Bowl for a while now. Now I know some of you had some good food, but I promise you it doesn’t compare to the great food Kristi serves. This year her sister Pam made a delicious pie that...

You think I’m joking...

   To tell this story properly, we need to go back one year to the first Pink Night. Thunder Ridge High School put together an event to raise cancer awareness.

I thanked...

Tri Cities Trip 2020

   Back in November, Ryan told me he was going to schedule a minor surgery in Spokane for his hip so he could continue to compete in triathlons. I told him when he had the surgery, I would come over and stay as long as he needed me to. We talked and he decided to have it done on January 8.    I hadn’t been over to Ryan’s for a while and I’m kind of...
