27 October 2007. Well, I spent 7 days at Ft. Chaffee, Arkansas drawing new equipment and getting trained up on it. We got back Thursday afternoon. I went to a part time job, this is a job the we get paid on our days off to provide security for while wearing our police uniforms. I work one regularly every other Friday for 11 hours. It's not hard work at all. During the summers one of my favorite part time jobs is working security for the Oklahoma Red Hawks Triple A baseball games. I love baseball and being paid to watch it is certainly a bonus. I missed this season due to getting back late in the season.
Today we spent all day at Mrs. Dub's grandparents house were we were having an estate sale. Her grandfather died a couple of years ago and her grandmother was finally placed in assisted living for health reasons. We have spent many hours getting the house ready for a sale and we finally went for it today. The weather couldn't have been better. A perfect day to be outside.
We will be over there for a little while longer tomorrow. Everyone is doing fine and Miss Dub brought home all A's on her report card. I'll be nice to her for a day or so, then back to the educational grindstone for her too.
Well, we need to figure out what to have for dinner. Be safe and have a great day.

14 October 2007. What a busy week. I finished up my set at work on last Tuesday. Wednesday my neighbor Rich and I worked on getting one of three tractors and one of two brush-hogs to work so I could cut my pasture area. We finally got there and I managed to get about a third of it cut before I had to quit for the evening. Thursday I went to the armory to work. Friday was at one of my part time jobs. Saturday was spent at the armory as my first day as Acting 1SG. Drill went pretty good. Things are still out of kilter since the Brigade is preparing to mobilize and ship off to train up for the Iraq mission. That finally brings us to today, Sunday. Today I am working with the OCPD ERT (emergency response team) setting up security along the route for the Oklahoma Centennial Parade in downtown OKC. We are now just a month away from our state finally being 100 years old.
Well, I better get back to the grindstone. Be safe and have a great day.
