I’M NOT USED TO SEEING THESE FUNNY TREES

(Out by Homestead Motor Speedway. Palm trees everywhere. Not use to seeing palm trees … or this many trees, period)
We’re having a good time in warm sunny South Florida.

Our planes were hours behind schedule, when we got in on Saturday, so we didn’t arrive in Miami until nearly 11 p.m. It was good to see Taylor. He looks more like a man and less like a kid every time I see him. Although he looks changes and looks older, I’m sure I haven’t aged a bit. :)

The next morning, I preached for the little congregation where he’s working. I spoke for about 30 minutes and after services had a little boy tell me, “Hey mister, you sure got a funny accent.” I asked him, “Thanks, but did you like the lesson?” (The second I asked that I thought to myself, “That’s a dangerous question to ask a little kid!”) He said, “Yes sir, but it was sure long.” :)

Have a blessed day…

    We were at a College baseball tournament in West Palm Beach Saturday night. There were several teams from the Northeast. It was easy to spot their fans – they were the ones in shorts and flip-flops while I had 3 layers of clothes on to fight the gale force winds. :)

    I remember driving into Cocoa, Florida, when I was down to interview for a job and being so impressed by all the palm trees lining the highway. I lived in Orlando as a kid but never remember seeing the palm trees.

    People are always asking me about my accent. I tell them I have no idea what they are talking abouyett.

    Glad you are having fun! We had those funny trees in our yard when we lived in Guam… they were EVERYwhere there and I really miss them! Not many of those in Childress, eh? :)

    When I am questioned about my accent I tell people two things:

    1. I don't have one. You do. We were talking like this hundreds of years before there was an America.

    2. You could have had this accent, too, but you shot us.

  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
  • Chin up Childress Bobcats. We couldn't be prouder. Great fight tonight.
