16 NOVEMBER 2007

Yes, it's finally here. It's been an exciting week with the finale tonight at the Oklahoma City Ford Center. The list of stars at this event makes you think we are hosting the American Music Awards instead of celebrating our statehood.
The start of the week had me volunteering with Mrs. Dub to work a conference downtown for two days and our reward was a night at the Cowboy Hall of Fame for dinner. The entertainment during that meal was a 45 minute concert from Blake Shelton followed by another 45 minutes with Vince Gill. We managed second table out from center stage and had a great time. Because of Mrs. Dub we managed to get 3 tickets to tonight's event and we are so lucky. It's been a great week, but with all that's gone into it, I may skip our bi-centennial and just watch it from home.
Life as a cop has been keeping me busy. I've had so many accidents to work lately that I feel I'm getting swamped. I went to back officers on an alarm call yesterday. The first officer on the scene noticed an open door in the back and as soon as the second officer got there they went in. As I came into sight of the back door I saw both officers lunging out of sight and then running into the front room. I raced into the house ready for anything and startled both of them. They had opened an interior door and let out a cat, now they were chasing it to put it back. Good grief.
Well, gotta get back to it. Odat, do an extra big Happy Dance Friday, be safe and have a great day.

08 November 2007, The Big Event is finally here. Actually, November has been full of big events, I'm almost ready to get the month over. Miss Dub turned 14 years old last week. I know, I should have blogged then. Tonight is her school play, "Into the Woods". She's been in several plays before, but what makes this one big, is I'm finally here to see it. Yes, the military has seen to it that I have missed her other roles. What other roles has she played? Well, there was the Evil Step-Mother for Cinderella in "Into the Woods", the Queen of Hearts in "The Trial of Alice in Wonderland" and now the Wicked Witch in "Into the Woods". Does anyone else see a pattern arising out of her roles? She just mentioned she was a dalmatian in 101 Dalmatians, but that was in kindergarten, and she was still likable then.
Next week marks the 100 year centennial for the State of Oklahoma. We have plans to attend a couple of the events. If all goes well, I'll get some pictures posted.
Work and military are keeping me busy, we had drill this last weekend and I had to teach a couple of classes.
Too much more I could report about, but I'll stop for now. Be safe and have a great day.
