Support the Rabid

Danny & Tonita came over last night for our weekly Survivor get together. We have been doing this for years and will continue to do so until CBS cancels the show, one of us moves away or the Rapture happens. Kenny and I have actually watched every single Survivor season and this year looks like it won't disappoint.

Anyway, last night was also the premier of season 4 of The Office. And since this year it is on at 9:00 instead of 8:30, we get to watch it! For those of you who don't watch this hilarious show I say go borrow the last 3 seasons RIGHT THIS MINUTE :)

Some of my favorite quotes from last night...

Michael Scott: Kelly, you're Hindu so you believe in Buddha.

Kelly: That's Buddhist.

Michael Scott: Are you sure?

Kelly: No.


Creed: I've been involved in a number of cults, both as a leader and a follower. You have more fun as a follower, but you make more money as a leader.


RIP Sprinkles


A few of our other shows (and by "our" I really mean "my" because Kenny can do with or without TV)...

LOST- Best show EVER!
Amazing Race
The Office

Anyway, What shows are you excited about? Anything that you just have to watch?

New Fall Design

Just trying out a new design for the new season.

It is raining today and the weather is nice and crisp. It finally feels like summer is over and fall is here :)

Edited to add: I changed the site layout 3 times today... sorry if it was crazy. I am my own worse critic.. I really was not liking the first two... I think I finally settled on one I liked :)

Name our fish

Yesterday we were at PetSmart and saw two little fish that we just HAD TO HAVE RIGHT THAT MINUTE! :)

Most of you know that we are notorious for not being able to name living creatures... we have had a beta named "Fish" a hamster named "Hammie" and a dwarf hamster named "Little Guy" (cause he was smaller than Hammie). It was only by sheer luck that Pilot has a name and is not called "Dog.” I am sure our kids may just end up being "Kid 1" and "Kid 2"

Anyway, our new little fish friends need names. The pictures aren't the greatest cause fish are incredibly hard to photograph... who knew?!? They are both fancy goldfish. One is orange and white and has bluish eyes. The other is a really cool green color and looks like a bass or a fishing lure.

Any suggestions?

I know you've missed me

It seems like FOREVER since I last posted on here and so much has happened... a weekend excursion to the Windy City, a fly fishing trip to Mammoth and a few other things I can't remember right now :)

I promise I will get our Chicago pictures up and a few stories posted soon.

As for Mammoth, we only took TWO pictures the entire weekend. I know, I know… it is unbelievable... especially from me & Kenny. We tend to take massive amounts of pictures on every trip… take Peru for example… I am pretty sure we had over 3 gigs worth of pictures!

So, without further ado, here are our two pictures from this weekend...

Kenny showing off one of the many brown trouts that he caught.

FYI: No matter how hot it is DO NOT wear short sleeves when fishing.
Let's just say Kenny and I learned our lesson after getting majorly sunburned!

The Owen's Valley...
a river, some cows and nowhere to hide if you have to pee!

Anyway, you can check out our post from last year if you have the desire to see more pictures of us fishing… just pretend like they were taken last weekend :)

Presidential Hopeful....

I will keep this short story, well, short.

I had just landed at Chicago’s Executive Airport and I was helping unload our passengers and get them into the FBO.

I was walking our lady client to the door, and, being the gentleman that I am, held the door open for her. As she passed through, I noticed a large group of people also coming in from the ramp having just disembarked a $43 million Gulfstream jet.

I decided to continue to hold the door for the group. As they approached, I noticed the man at the head of the pack, and he looked awfully familiar from twenty feet away. I did the not-so-subtle stare and as he was about ten feet away, it clicked. It was presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani!

As he approached, I gave him “the nod” and casually asked, “Hey, how’s it going?”

RG - “Not too bad. Thanks for the door.”

Me - “Have a good one.”

RG - “You too.”

And through the door he went, carrying with him the hopes of getting a really crappy job!

Off to the Windy City!

Yesterday Kenny found out he had to fly a 5 day trip to Chicago leaving today.

Last night we had talked about me coming out, but decided that I probably couldn't get off work with such short notice and that the tickets would be too pricey.

Well, today I purchased my tickets to fly out there and surprise him!

I am so excited! Chicago here I come!

P.S. Thank you Danny & Tonita for watching Pilot at such short notice :)

This weekend we went up and spent some time with Jamie, David & Jeffrey.

Kenny had to fly to Ohio on Saturday, but was able to fly back into Bakersfield Sunday afternoon so we could all hang out. Jeffrey had fun waiting for Captain Kenny to land... I think we might end up having another pilot in the family!

After picking up Kenny, we braved the 286 degree heat and took Jeffrey out for his first geocache. Even though it felt like we were going to melt, we had a great time and managed to grab 3 caches for the weekend.

We mostly just had fun watching Jeffrey be cute and funny. He is at such a fun age right now and knows just how to make you laugh. He loves his Uncle Kenny!
