How's everybody doing? I've been well, for the most part. Feeling a little beat up this morning, but love the pain. I am now helping my buddy Mike Giroux teach MMA twice a week. Last night we had one of our ex-pro fighters come in and teach some ground game... He tore me up! I loved every minute of it. Work has been good. I promoted my assistant, and have been looking at bringing someone in. I interviewed one young lady so far, but I have 25 more resumes to go through. Jordan came up for dinner Sunday night... I guess she is moving to Seattle in May. Everyone I tell, ask me how I feel about that??? Frankly I think it's gonna suck, but I am excited for her, and now I have somewhere to stay in the northwest! It will be a good spot to go into Alaska or up into Canada for some big boy play! (McKinley, Rainier and Hood) Trey has been busy with school. He has hours, and hours of homework every night. When he complains about it I tell him it was his choice to take FOUR AP classes, Spanish two and Orchestra! Sherrie only has a couple more months of school. She just finished rotations at Children's Hospital, and is at Deaconess again in the Cardiac Cath Lab. It looks like her final rotation will be at Spine Hospital. That is where she would really like to work, and that would be the best for our family. It is just a couple miles away, and they have a very liberal schedule. I have been ask to participate in the Edmond Fine Arts Spring Sampler again this year.... I feel honored when I am ask. I will print and frame two images and they will go in the show and auction to raise funds for the arts here in Edmond. I sent four images for them to choose from... I will post them above.
Love you all!

Well it has been a couple busy weeks. Work, work, and more work. I know.... Blah, Blah, Blah! I have done several shoots, and working really hard in the gym. I have a goal to get back in my skinny jeans by summer! Muay Thai is going great. Our classes are getting bigger every week. I usually work on the basics with the new students, and let Mike do the technical teaching. I did spar him a couple times in the last couple of weeks. I feel good about it! One night he knocked me out, and the next I busted his mouth open! Tit for tat!!! I bought some new equipment for the house as well! I bought a new heavy bag for the garage. So a big bag for punches and kicks and a small bag for knees and elbows. I also got a mag trainer for my bike, so I can ride in the comfort of my living room. For those of you who don't know what a mag trainer is.... It is a device that my road bike sits in. The rear tire is elevated and has a magnetic resistance wheel on the back, so it's just like riding outside, only not! I also got a body rack. I can do standing crunches, pull-ups, upside down crunches and anything else I invent! For Valentines Day.... Sherrie got a new exercise bike too... We're all getting our act together! This last weekend, Sherrie and I had our 23rd anniversary. My good friend Clark let me have the run of his estate at Lake Tenkiller. It is by far the most beautiful lake in the state. Just about 20 miles south of the lake is Sequoya Wildlife Reserve. This time of year there are four Bald Eagles that winter there. Well.... We found them! They are truly beautiful! We went back to the house for a bit before heading up to Tahlequah for lunch and a movie. We saw the new Die Hard movie and it was awesome. We drove around the lake for a couple of hours before grabbing dinner and going back to the house. I was really under the weather so no big hikes or climbing cliffs. That's OK.... There's always next time! This week is going to be busy! The images I am posting are from the Baylor University Women's Alumni Association Dinner at Vast in the Devon Building, and pictures from the Lake this weekend.
Love you all!
