Week 40: A Peaceful Parent

Week 40: A Peaceful Parent

After everything that has been going on in my life lately, such as a ton of people staying with us, a relative dying, and my soccer team’s state tournament approaching, I was desperately searching for a break. Just spending some time of peace and quiet without any pressure on me to do something or go somewhere. Thankfully, I finally got that break, because I spent the day with Randy Gray, a peaceful and quiet man … Read entire article »

Week 39: Fighting For What’s Right

Week 39: Fighting For What’s Right

What are some jobs that can change the world? Hmm? Of course the president, a famous athlete, a singer, a computer programmer, things like that. Well, how about a weekly movie creator who’s a Christian, a conservative, has an instructor’s license in Krav Maga and doesn’t shrink back from an altercation? No, you think. That couldn’t change the world. Actually it could. How do I know that? Because that’s the very kind of guy that … Read entire article »

Week 38: Poor Little Bambi

Week 38: Poor Little Bambi

Before this summer and fall, I had always loved deer. In my eyes, they were graceful, beautiful animals that would glide and bound through thickets, capturing your joy as they went. They were cute and sweet and cuddly, with all of their heart-warming ways (and no, I’ve never watched Disney’s™ Bambi, so don’t even go there). But now I see them in a different light. I still like deer, but they now strike me as … Read entire article »

Preparing for the Hunt and the Value of Freedom

Many of the appointments within this project have been one day affairs.  I drive my son to meet with the man, they spend time together, and I pick my son up again.  The hunt was a bit more involved. My brother-in-law, who graciously agreed to take David hunting, gave me a good overview of what would be required several months in advance.  This allowed ample time to mentally and physically prepare for the Junior Hunt weekend. The biggest commitment on David’s part was to work through the online hunting course.  We chose this route rather than the classroom format due to scheduling, travel and time logistics and sheer convenience.  Still, with multiple family members being involved in sports, music, art and church activities, it was still daunting enough.  My job involved staying … Read entire article »

Week 37: The Defense Rests (and takes a coffee break)

Week 37: The Defense Rests (and takes a coffee break)

How many lawyer jokes are out there? That’s probably like asking, “Which came first; the chicken or the egg?” or “If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound?” My point is, pretty much everyone makes fun of lawyers in some way. However, I learned today that not all lawyers are stereotypical of the jokes. In fact, the majority of the attorneys here in Cleveland and Bradley County are actually very competent … Read entire article »
