A Few Odds and Ends for Tuesday

First, allow me to apologize for my prolonged absense, which I personally find inexcusable. I have been somewhat busy and failed to make time to keep my blogging experience moving forward. I promise to do much better in the future.

Second, allow me to take a moment and congratulate my dear friend Rob Huddleston on three very important events. First, he should be congratulated on his excellent coverage of the events in Nashville over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed his updates and encourage all to read through his blog at your next opportunity ( I am going to take full responsibility for his success due to my crack troubleshooting abilities when it came time to set up his web connection at the Holiday Inn. You all can thank me later. Second, I want to congratuate Mr. Huddleston (Your Honor) on his new employment. Many jokes and quips to follow in the near future. Thirdly, and most importantly, Happy Birthday Rob. You are now as old as me, and entitled to all the mysteries and evils of being 29. I'll send you the briefing a little later.

Finally, my family unit has reached yet another milestone this past week as Michael David, my son and newest doubles partner, took three important steps on his journey through life. First, he began his 1st grade year at Holston View Elementary. Second, later that day, Michael lost his first tooth and gained the smile of a true 1st grader. Third, and in his father's eyes possibly most important, he and I walked onto a tennis court and began the fundamental teachings of doubles tennis. Michael has truly taken to the sport and loves the feeling of a well hit forehand. His daddy is so proud.

There will be more to come in the near future I promise, including a really cool Knoxville prostitution story......
