I am an easy going guy, I like to play Pool. I have been playing in a league for 4 years now. (thanks t0 Kevin for getting me started) The League that I am associated with is the A.P.A. Which stands for the American Pool Players Association. It's an amateur league. Prior to this year, I was on two teams that regularly won our division. This year I am on two teams who have not faired so well, mostly thanks to my poor playing. (Do you know about the curse?) I have won awards through my years playing pool, and have got to meet alot of cool people, along with some of the greats that play the sport. Pool has been kind to me:)
I also get to be a part of weddings each weekend. It is a joy to be there with couples as they enjoy and celebrate their wedding day.
I work (temporarily at least) at a wonderful law firm, getting to do what I do best.
And then at the end of the day I get to come home to the best girl in the world.
You could say that i am like the Clark Kent charactor. I fumble and mumble my way around. Every once and a while I will say something, or do something that makes someone's day. Another one of my dreams is to be able to fly around saving people. Just really don't know about the costume though, cause i am not a skinny guy, and it wouldn't look too good.

The Truth is often painful.
Deep down nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits close to home.
Sometimes we tell the truth because the truth is all we have to give.
Sometimes we tell the truth to say it outloud to hear it for ourselves.
And sometimes we tell the truth because we just can't help ourselves.
And sometimes we tell them the truth, because we owe them, at least, that much.
Have a good day, Ric

Thanksgiving Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
We bow our hearts to You and pray.
We give You thanks for all You've done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
For joy and health, friends and family,
For daily provision, Your mercy and care
These are the blessings You graciously share.
I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know
Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure
That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person invited
.I give thanks for life today,
I pray for health and strength along the way.
To carry on and try to be as you would have us to be.
Forgive us our sins as we draw closer to Thee.
This we ask in the name of Christ,

This 80 year old woman was arrested for shoplifting. When she went before the judge in Cincinnati he asked her, "What did you steal", she replied, "A can of peaches". The judge then asked her why she stole the can of peaches and she replied that she was hungry. The judge then asked her how many peaches were in the can. She replied 6. The judge then said " I will give you 6 days in jail." Before the judge could actually pronounce the punishment, the womans husband spoke up and asked the judge if he could say something. the judge said "What is it?"
The husband said, "She also stole a can of peas."

Raking it in. - So hungry I could eat a horse.
What's done is done. - Tools of the trade.
Putting it in a nutshell. - Sturdy as an oak.
There's no time like the present.
We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
Stand your ground. - Rough as a cob.
Ugly as a mud fence. - They are like two peas in a pod.
She is the apple of my eye.
Rain, rain go away; come again another day.
You are all washed up. - Slow as a snail.
Stubborn as a mule. - Watered down.
You are in hot water. - Till the cows come home. - Slow as molasses in January.
Tall as a tree. - Still waters run deep.
Watch and wait. - You reap what you sow.
You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink.
We hung them out to dry. - Save it for a rainy day.
Speak softly and carry a big stick.
Walking on water. - Stop and smell the roses.
You cant teach an old dog new tricks.
That is water under the bridge
Weed it out. - she has a green thumb.
What goes up must come down.
Wait and see. - Waking up with the chickens.
Walking on cloud nine. - The real McCoy. - I feel like a fish out of water.
Sweet as honey. - What's done is done.
Shake like a leaf. - You are all washed up.
When pigs fly. - Wet behind the ears.
Red as a beet. - There may be snow on the roof, but there is fire in the belly
Timing is everything - When it rains, it pours
Pull it up by the roots - Slow as a snail - Stuck in a rut. This is for the birds. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
You are all washed up. - The whole nine yards.
And my two favorites:
Colder than a Texas Tech Cheerleader -
Hotter than one of those Newbern Girls
Ya'll be good.....Ric
