New wheels, new game

My testosterone levels have shot through the roof since last Friday. I’m beginning to worry about myself. I actually considered wearing camo to teach in at Journey on Sunday. It’s all due to my acquisition of a new vehicle – a 2001 Nissan Exterra. Ronny Williams, a great friend who works at Dsc02116
Ryburn Motors as the general sales poobah called me last week. He said, “I’ve found what you need.” And indeed he had. Although the Exterra has 212K miles on it, it runs like a top and has the effect of re-masculinizing me. Aaah. Bye bye, minivan. Old Blue is on the sales block for $3K. Spread the word. It has 152,000 miles, a 2 year-old transmission and a brand new waterpump. Fit for a queen.

In other news, the Mr. Bug Exterminators lost Saturday, 16-0, to the Maxwell Green Machine. This junior league football team (3rd-4th grade) that I’m coaching has some great kids on it, but had a major case of the first-game-jitters (or maybe the coach did!). I think we fumbled the ball 37 times. Dsc02120
(It felt like that from out of the field.) At least we didn’t get beat as bad as the Billies did Friday night… and I don’t even get paid to do this. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sam had a great showing, even recovering a fumble!

I don’t know if any of you are aware of it, but Journey has a podcast. If you’re really bored, you can listen to the messages weekly here.

    I tried the podcast link. It wouldn’t open on my computer. Is it working or might it be something on my end?


  5. Jeff says:
    Karl, you’re not crazy. The xml file was incorrect at the podcast location… I think it’s working now. Thanks for the heads up.

    Angela, tell Mark that he’d look great in a minivan. It’s a life stage we all have to pass through.

    Tanx, TJ!

    And now I’m driving a moped… Am I moving up or sideways in the world? By the way, Thursday will be a month in which I’ve only driven the Exterra once. It may be on the market soon!
