Variations on a name..

Every so often we receive mail with our last name spelled in different ways.  These were actually addressed to us:
    DeWysokie (the most common)
Today we received DeWysockuie!  Makes getting the mail interesting.

The Pail List

The movie "The Bucket List" has motiviated people to create a list of things that would like to do before they "kick the bucket".  My list is called "The Pail List".  Since we do not know when when we are going to leave this earth, "The Pail List" seems more manageable than "The Bucket List".

Since turning nifty-won last week and reflecting on what the next year could possibly bring, I've decided to achieve five things this year.
 1. Go to a college football game.  I've always wondered about the cultural aspect of college football in the south. (Going to the TCU vs. Colorado State game today (October 17).
2. Visit the new Cowboys Stadium or better know as "Jerry World".
3. Participate in something out of my comfort zone at church.  This would be the toughest one to achieve.
4. Road trip with Karen.
5. Keeping up with this blog.  So far, so good.

Psalms 145:3

This was on the small calendar I have on my desk:
Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. Psalms 145:3

I rest my case.

I think everyone has a love/hate relationship with their cars. I love our car (2002 Ford Taurus) primarily because it is paid off and we own it.

I hate it when it breaks down.

The repairs should not cost more than your mortgage payment. Oh, well.
