Oh! HI! Oh!

Well, DAY TWO of our sabbatical is underway. After a healthy nutritious breakfast… McBagel with Creme Cheese and Strawberry Jam! We headed to Webb’s Antique Mall (who puts those travel magazines in the hotel rooms!?!?!?!?), which claims to be largest in Indiana… Amazing… pay for old stuff, that costs more now than when it was new! While Sara shopped, I checked out the old cemetary next door and researched Steve Tanner’s roots. (and others, will be posted in the photo gallery to come!) Tanner than whom? Not any more. Next we decided to take in some of the local food to see how the natives eat here… Nothing like trying new places… Then, after taking in miles of the breath-taking Indiana landscape… Glad I brought my camera! We finally got to Ohio! Kim Bobb, here we come! Kim and Nick Bobb in their new home. And thier hypoallergenic dog, Cali.NOW WE ARE OFF TO HAVE SOME FUN, MORE LATER! Tomorrow is Kim’s church, a volunteer gathering, and the CIRCUS!

Begun, This Sabbatical Has.

Well, the sabbatical is officially underway! In fact, this post is being made from a hotel in Richmond, Indiana – and with my laptop online with my cell phone, due to some fancy third party software that makes my Treo600 take my Powerbook online at 100K – not bad for free unlimited Internet while traveling (anywhere there is cell reception, of course) But since most of you are bored already with this ‘tech talk’ on to our adventures…. First stop: Fridays with Sara’s parents in the South Burbs… Next Stop: My older sister and her kids at Dairy Queen…(SEE MORE PICS FROM TODAY IN DAY ONE GALLERY) Me and Pastor Dave Barber. (boss man) I’d like to dedicate this first sabbatical post to my boss and pastor, Dave Barber. He’ll cringe for me saying it here (huuuummmmmble man of God that he is) but I am so grateful to be able to work with a pastor who truly seeks after God’s heart and who cares for his staff beyond just “job performance.” He really works hard to minister to us, encourage us, challenge us, and make sure we are doing well spiritually. While he is reluctant to accept any credit,…

Taking Over Culvers for the Last Time…

One of my favorite things to do is go out to eat with families after church (which you’ve seen on this blog) You may remember reading my joke about how I should get a discount for bringing so many families to a restaurant – well, either the owner of Culvers reads my blog, or the Lord moves the hearts of restaurant owners! Because at our last ‘Culvers’ after church gathering, the owner identified me as the ‘ring leader’ of this massive group, and asked the name of our ‘group’ – and next thing I know, I’ve got a BOX of 500 10% off VIP cards: Now I’m the guy to know around church. :) I passed these out to friends after church and then headed off to Culvers for my ‘last Sunday meal’ until after my sabbatical! Off to Culvers with my fan club. ;) (I didn’t forget Sara, she left church early for the wedding shower of my little bro’s fiance’, who are being married on May 27th, the finale’ of my sabbatical.)   Part of the gang, actually 56 people came for lunch! We took over the place!! (Manager said we ran them out of hot dog buns!)…

Happy Birthday Mom!

In celebration of my mom-in-law’s birthday, my wife and I met her parents for a nice steak dinner tonight at a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant called WILDFIRE, a 40’s themed steakhouse… In honor of my blogspiration, Steve Tanner, I will begin this post with what I ate for dinner… I had the Porterhouse Steak Au Jus, it is two favorite cuts – New York Strip and Filet Mignon – in a single steak and then I opted for the Parmesan crusting – something they claim they are famous for. It was delicious – though, as usual, I end up liking my wife’s steak better. (She got the Char Crusted Rib Eye “Prime Rib” chop, served au jus) For dessert I chose the giant chocolate chip cookie, hot in the pan, with ice cream on top, but asked them to hold the whipped creme, which they forgot of course.(Maybe I should have taken pictures of the food BEFORE I ate it? Sorry, I’m new at this blog thing.) There was a healthy choice of desserts to choose from, as you can see, my dad is having a hard time deciding… I take that back, ‘a healthy choice’ was probably not the…
