Did a little WHEELIN today

A HUGE thanks to Loren for taking us on a tour of the Vonlintel Estate. I really over used my welcome by bringing the Richards Family, the Cory and Landon Munsch along with Me and the boys. (Jen enjoyed some quiet time this afternoon)

We did prove that you can get 800cc's stuck down to the frame in mud. That would not have been that bad, however add a foot of water on top of that mud and we were getting abit worried. (At least Jake was) First time we really needed a winch to get us out.

Other than that, Caden had some problems getting stuck, however once we took the parking brake off it sure worked a lot better!

All in all a great time with the neighbors, friends and such.

No trips to the Emergency room,

The House did not burn down, the cops were not called and the children did not starve. Jenifer, our neighbor Fanny and friends went down to a Country and Western concert (Yuck) They saw Carrie Over the Woods and the guy who sings that song about God being Great, and beer being good. (Heard that one before, however is not quite as appropriate when sung in public by a 4 year old)

And yes, Kevin and I (Kevin being Fanny's husband)got the kids to school on time, fed, to religion and practices and even a birthday party. If I would have had any more direction you would have thought I was landing a Boeing 737 for the first time.

Everyone can now sleep easier, Jen and Fanny are back and in charge. I suppose, maybe just for a second, we all missed them.

The annual Vendor Meeting

Was last week at the Casino north of Topeka. It was another success according to the participants that I spoke to. This was our third year of having the event and we are down to one original vendor rep. Kevin from Sonicwall is now the most tenured participant. He really called me out on a couple of failure points. That is what this is all about. Celebrating the successes and bringing forward the failures.

To most, the economy is looking not quite as bad. However the telcom still is a bit down. We will see where next year takes us.

One unexpected result is by presenting where we are at and the things we did last year, it gave me a chance to stop for a second and admire the great things that were accomplished!

I do think that next year I will have to take it up a notch. Not sure what this looks like right now, just putting it down as a goal.

Day 3 update

Monday we went to Wamego Country Club see

What a beautiful course. The first 9 is definitely good, however the back 9 is the best course I have played. We really enjoyed that experience. I would suggest if you need a challenge, go and visit.
