Top Ten

Angie started her CNA class today. The first of many on her way to RN. She's been pretty stressed about choosing full time school again. It will be a ton of work. She's a smart cookie though, so she'll be just fine.

I just returned yesterday from the annual Troutslayer fall campout. This time we camped at Lake of Three Fires in southwest Iowa. It was a nice clean park with a great lake. As usual, the weekend was filled with good food, cigars, beverages, and conversation. Thanks fellas.

The Hawks won again on Saturday. They're now 7-0 and ranked in the top ten in every poll. Go Hawks!

My mom's younger brother, my Uncle Mark, was killed last week in Colorado, where he lived. It's horrible and sad.
I've been listening to an audio book that my mom gave me titled "Three Cups of Tea". It's about an incredible man named Greg Mortenson who builds schools in poor areas in Northern Pakistan. His story is amazing and very inspiring. They gave the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama, who has done absolutely nothing, especially compared to Greg Mortenson. What the hell?

Angie and I went to the Iowa/Michigan game on Saturday. It was a great game. I bought her tickets to the game for her birthday. She told me this morning that yesterday is in her "top ten best days ever". Cool.
