My Dog Died

My Dog Neon - End of Life 3/30/15
I peeled the "D" and "E" off of my Dodge Neon.... and made it my "Dog."

My Dog Died.

The need for a $2,500 engine replacement job = the death of my Dog Neon. It's been a good 3 year journey, my friend. His name was Ramsey after Mr. Dave Ramsey (I sold my truck that had a payment and bought this car outright.. no car payment after taking his Financial Peace University).

I think I'll miss the bumper stickers the most.

Good Dog.

An ass, a sidekick and a mini horse walk into a post...

Flat Guillermo in Kyle, Texas
Flat Guillermo from the Jimmy Kimmel show visits Cross Plants and Produce in Kyle, Texas -

So, on March 16 I was able to go to the Austin, Texas taping of the Jimmy Kimmel show. At that show I was given (along with everyone else in the audience) a "Flat Guillermo" which is Kimmel's sidekick.

Much like Flat Stanley, we were told to post photos of Guillermo around town. There were some great ones. Check out the Instagram posts that tagged #GuillermoInAustin - link

I took him to Kyle with me... and visited a few places... here's him at Cross Plants and Produce.

2015 Concerts For A Cause - First Show

Down South Railhouse is the 2015 home of Concerts For A Cause

March 14 was the Grand Opening of Down South Railhouse AND the first show of the 2015 season of the Kyle, Texas soon-to-be non-profit, Concerts for a Cause.

Pictured below is Austin singer-songwriter D.C. Bloom playing during the event which raised over $500 for the cause of the month. The cause for the 1st show WAS Concerts For A Cause in order to afford to file the paperwork to become a non-profit.

Cross Plants and Produce - Mini Celebrities

Meeting Spot and Shorty
My nephews came to visit this past weekend... so I decided to take them to Cross Plants and Produce... which is a nursery and market where they have grass-fed beef and buy their veggies & eggs and things like that direct from farmers.

They also have local celebrity animals, Spot and Shorty. It may have been drizzling.. but a mini-horse and mini-donkey was worth the trip for the kiddos... and I picked up some carrots.

March Theme - Aging

How I react to the theme of Aging
This is a photo of my daughter from a few years ago... I call this one "Rampage."
When I think of aging.. I think.. let's do this! I'm ready! Just because we're getting older doesn't mean we have to become frail old people in rocking chairs that live for the soft food at Luby's. Let's roar into our 90s!
