11 Innings with The Los Angeles Dodgers

July 15, 2008

Parents 2 took us to see the Dodgers play last Saturday night (fireworks night!) against the Florida Marlins.  May I just say the experience was somewhat different from that at Mavericks stadium in Adelanto.  Besides the jump from a handful of people to a sold out game at Dodger stadium, and the concession prices, and the parking fiasco (which Duane navigated like a pro), the energy was tons higher.  And even though we lost (and it was a shame), it was indeed “1, 2, 3 strikes, you’re out at the old ballgame.”

The High Desert Mavericks

July 15, 2008

Our Life Group (and much of the church) went to see the Mavs play last Thursday and we had a great time together. And although Tony wore his Portland Beavers shirt with pride, he rooted for the Mavs while they played against the Quakes of Rancho Cucamonga. Lost of kids, lots of adults, lots of food. What a great night.

(We missed you, Team Baughman.)

Semi-Pro Install

July 15, 2008

JL Music & Sound (music is in another room).  The BOSE cubes are installed and plugged in.  The surround sound prewire in the house was incredibly easy to connect everything through.  Stuff sounds like it should now.

(PS – all the BOSE customer service people have been great.)

Naked Windows

July 15, 2008

For days, we were exposed to the outside world.  We had towels and blankets taped to the walls in our bathroom – you’ll see why below…  Finally, an old acquaintance of mine showed up at my door and offered his services.  Along with a great price, he brings a great testimony and love of Jesus.  I now call him a friend and a brother.  Our thanks go to Worrell – God bless you.

Genuine “Dino-Damage”

July 15, 2008

Nothing like cutting large holes into brand new walls!  But that’s the kind of sacrifice loving “pair”ents make for their boys.  Banjo and Bagel needed a way to get in and out of the house (for their own good), and this is what we made happen…

(Thanks, Duane, for bringing the dino-damage.)

My handy work x3

Our Fu Fizzled

July 15, 2008

As for the Masters of Song Fu songwriting competition Bryan and I were in… we graciously bowed out of the running.  Bryan got sick and we moved during the second round.  Instead of throwing something together we wouldn’t be absolutely proud of, we decided to allow the race to be run without us.  Thanks to all of you who voted for us in the first round.  (If we finish the song we began for round 2, I’ll upload it here for you.)

It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on the goings-on around here. Last you saw, we had just gotten the keys. So much has happened in two weeks, so I’ll do my best to chronicle the adventure as it happened, but I may be a bit off. We start with the LIVING ROOM WALL.

(Many thanks to our friends Gary and Kari Collins for helping us with the painting of this wall – and Jane’s room.)
