  The Summer Sizzle at C-Hunts

Debbie and I went to the Summer Sizzle today, at C-Hunts in north Austin. We had a great time. They don't call it sizzle for nothing, the weather lived up to its name. Entry include a great BBQ chicken dinner with all the fixin's. Also had a silent auction, and real auction with Bandido Doug doing the calling and Escondido Paul helping encourage the crowd. Music was great, provided by Young Generation. All this to help raise money for our local charity J. W. Rock, which provides Christmas food baskets and toys to the most needy families in the Austin area. We work with St. Vincent DePaul to find the families that we help. In all, I am sure we raised over $1000 for J. W. Rock. Well done!

  Grace, Grace, More Grace!
This months article is about grace. We need to give more grace to the people around us. That would be you, me and everyone else. Why you might ask should we give everyone more grace? Well, it is simple really. You see we all screw up, sometimes big, and sometimes small, but we all doit. Sometimes on purpose and sometimes by accident, but we all doit. And, whenever we screw up, God pours out His grace up on us. He doesn't even say "gosh I wish you wouldn't have done that", He just forgives us and pours out His blessings upon us. So, what I am saying is, that we should be more grateful to God for the limitless grace He pours out onto us, by allowing Him to pour our His grace "through us" on those people around us. Especially those that don't deserve it, which none of us do. Hey, if your ears are burning, I am right there with you. As the old song says, "grace, grace, more grace". Forget about justice and mercy, they don't even come close, it is grace I want, and grace I have through the salvation available only through Jesus Christ!

  Day Two - Mostly Kansas

We today was mostly Turnpike, which wasn't that good for milage, but before that it started out nice with this first shot of my tank average at 50.2 mpg. If onlly it had kept up. Next the Waffle House, not much good I can say about it, except the service was good. Unfortunately the waffles left something to be desired.

Now we are into my mostly turnpike pictures shot out the window. At one stop, we did see some very interesting farm equipment.

  Vacation First Day

We are heading to Minniapolis, heading up 183 to 281, etc. On 281 we found the Hard 8 bbq in Stephanville, and it was delicious. We can highly recommend the pulled pork, but everything was great.

Next we found this old building on 81 north of Bowie, it was a rundown two story building, but it was clearly something that should have been preserved. Built out of rock, petrified wood and glass, it was quite a site in the afternoon light. The grass was all grown up around it, and filled with grass hoppers, but that didn't slow me down as I walked around to take these pictures.

  The Memorial for Sputnik at the Texas State Capital

Debbie and I went to the memorial for Sputnik this morning at the State Capital in downtown Austin. We had a large number of people in attendance, probably over 1000. We also had a Norma Chavez, one of our most involved legislators in attendance. We had music and a great sermon. It was a wonderful event, with all the clubs working together, and Sputnik would have been proud to attend. Sputnik will be missed in so many ways, but we will not give up the fight to protect out freedom.

Here are the best of the images we took, in no particular order. As usual, click any image for a larger version. Let me know if you want any full size images.

Some of the details of my life, as I allow Christ to live out His life through me.
