For A Third Visit, Random Thoughts
A younger veteran, single father of four kids is the newest Kansas Citian that is getting a new home compliments of Ty and his gang. It's the third time the crew from ABC's "Extreme Home Makeover" have visited the Kansas City area.
This story is another very compelling one. The dad went to Iraq, was injured, came home, wife decides to bail, he is left with the four kids (probably a blessing for him and the kids), and they all live in a tiny, worn-down home. I bet it will air in April or May.
Somehow, a crazy Cowboy with a talkative cat that has a dilated pupil and formerly was homless, and a monster that came before is just not enough of a gut-wrenching story to warrant a free, big and fancy new home. Darn. You'd think it would be good enough for Paige to stop by to say hello.
Saw Carrie Underwood on the CMA's Wednesday night. A country-music awards show has to be one of the largest gatherings of talented Oklahomans. Well, and maybe folks from Tennessee too. I was hoping Rodney Atkins would win the Horizon. I think he's great.
The company annually has an online auction that complements our United Way effort. It ended today in a flurry of activity. It was kinda fun and raised almost $5,500. Pretty cool! Unfortunately I tried to up the price on a few things thinking someone would bid higher. They didn't and now I am the proud winning bidder on some silly stuff. I wonder who'll get them for Christmas.
