When I was a kid I was playing golf with two friends who happened to be brothers.  One took a big swing at the ball and missed.  Instead he connected with his brothers head, just behind the temple. …Continue

I know a lot of guys on AoM had either a bad or no relationship with their dads.  I was one of the fortunate ones.  My dad is a hard worker, in a long line of hard workers.  I've been taking an…Continue

Mylestones: "Turns in the Road"

Posted on February 28, 2010 at 8:36pm 0 Comments

Several years ago the Senior Pastor at our church announced that he had decided to retire after over 40 years of service. The months that followed involved a number of unexpected twists as the pulpit committee attempted to find his replacement.

Since the church is a large congregation in a small denomination, the number of candidates experienced enough to lead a church with over 2,000 members is somewhat limited. At long last they found their man. 28 months ago Pastor Dave Plaster was… Continue

Mylestones: Ice Dams and Entropy

Posted on February 18, 2010 at 7:38pm 2 Comments

I don't know another way of saying it. This hasn't been a good week. In fact, it's been a very bad, not good week. There are times in life when you feel like you just can't win and there are other times you look back on those times as the "good ol' days".

Sunday night my wife and I were returning home from a Valentine outing in my college clown car when she asked me to roll her window down for a moment. As I did, it made a grinding sound and a clip, down in the bowels of the door must… Continue

Mylestones: "My Brother's Voice"

Posted on February 14, 2010 at 2:00pm 6 Comments

My only brother died in 1983. The victim of a single-car accident, he was snatched from our lives at the tender age of 30. He left behind a wife and 18 month old baby girl. He left a shattered me behind as well. It’s funny; I still dream about him at times. His face is so clear in my mind, yet somehow, I can’t remember his voice. Brad’s death was both an end and a beginning for me. It was the end of my living in his large,… Continue

Mylestones: "Man in the Middle"

Posted on February 13, 2010 at 3:54pm 5 Comments

Working a second job wasn't what I had expected of life at age 46 but my business had gone through a real rough spot so I jumped at the chance for some additional income, even if it was for just a few weeks. The 80+ hour work weeks grew old quickly.

It was a cold Sunday evening when I made my way to my car on the far side of the frozen parking lot. The temperature couldn't have been over 10 degrees. Exhausted, I fell into the driver's seat and turned the key - click, click, nothing.… Continue

Hey Miles. Beach music, eh? You know, a lot of people won't own up to that. LOL. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in our little town. Look me up, if you ever get back this way!

Hmm. I still don't remember that author. I'll look him up next time I'm at the library.

Hi Myles. No, I am not from Texas originally. I'm actually from Colorado. My spelling is probably due to the fact that I read a lot of British liturature. The writer you mentioned didn't ring any bells. What did he write?

Hey, Myles. If you're referring to Eric Barkey the Canadian pilot who lives in Cochrane, Alberta, then yep, that's my Uncle.

Hey there Myles. About the Daily Bible Study, I simply upgrade the two chapters that we are going to look at each day. When you click on it, the chapters are listed at the bottom of the introduction. Today's are Ps. 109 and Prov. 20.

Hi there Myles. Welcome to AoM and also to the Christian Men's group. I have a daily Bible study there. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
