Autumn, Falls, & 50 years

First of all tomorrow (August 30) is Autumn's 8th birthday! She is one awesome little lady and she is (as she says) "livin the life!" She is getting a kiddie MP3 player filled with Christian propaganda. What the?

Secondly, we are taking a trip to NY and on our way stopping by Niagra Falls. I went there a few times in my life, but my most vivid memory of it was from the movie Superman 2 when Lois and Clark shared the honeymoon sweet... unfortunately we will be at the Budget Inn with three kids in tow.

Finally, we are participating in the 50th anniversary of the Bohall (Vicki's side of family) reunion. We'll be at Lamoka Baptist Camp. It looks like they have a tether ball (Dynamite!) and a teeter totter (not yet banned by concerned parents). Should be fun!

Have a great rest on Labor Day. It is everyones alleged Sabbath. Although it seems like more and more people work on Labor Day.

Flow river flow,

Meltdown- please God no!

Since the All-Star break the once mighty Detroit Tigers with their potent offense and effective pitching have looked horrible. Gone is the swagger. Gone is the confidence. Gone is the fun. It looks like they are pressing, pushing, and scared.

Therefore, I am miserable. I shouldn't let

The biggest culprit seems to be injuries to key players: Zumaya, Rogers, Rodney, Miller, and on and on...

The second biggest negative impact has been the awful bullpen.

I am not giving up hope, but the next week could decide the season.

Let's go Tigers!

Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to watch the Detroit Tigers in action. However, they were horrible. In fact, the last couple weeks have been a complete meltdown. Injuries, a shaky bullpen, and inconsistent starting pitching have produced a team that seems to lack energy. But, I still love them and I had a great time regardless. Go Tigs!

Also - I got a MySpace page. I'm doing it to primarily keep in touch with some family members and I'm not spending a lot of time on it, but in case you wanted to see an old man on myspace: Deurty Space

Dibs Emerging

Here is a picture of my dad Dave Deur. He is reflecting and thinking of new photos to take for his emerging business. Some day you may find yourself encouraged by a Fireplug Card.

Take a trip over to his blog for more pics and shticks.
