10.12.2011 Deep Thoughts....

Present Day
So the weekend of 10.7 - 10.9 Kelly and I got to have a weekend away from the out wonderful 2 kids.  It was the first weekend away from them in a long, long, lloonnng time.   We got to spend the weekend in Austin Texas. on 20.7 we went and saw Tyler Ward in concert. He has made a name for himself on you tube  you can check him out at  It was a good time, he puts on a good show. It was a Stubbs BBQ in Austin, which is standing room only.  The doors opened at 8 pm and we got back to our car just after 12:30 am on 10.8  so it was a lot of standing.  I am old it was like 8:30 pm and i turned to Kelly tell her that i was ready for bed.  I remember a time when my night started @midnight. man i am getting old.

After seeing Tyler it got me thinking.  I am guessing he is about our age doing what he want to do and having fun doing it. this is what i am thinking on 10.8 when Kelly and i go to dinner with Clint and Andrea.

Some History

Clint and i went to ACU at the same time but did not start getting to know each other until we both got jobs at Apple.  That is when i found out Clint was in to tv and movies.  So during my time Living in Austin Clint and i wrote a screen play called the Butterfly Bout.

The Butterfly Bout is a work of art.  when i got married and moved out of Austin in 2006, Clint kept the Butterfly Bout screen play to hopefully get it made.  He had some takers, he had some reedits done, but now one saw our vision of the Butterfly Bout.

Present Day

Clint, Andrea, Kelly and i are sitting at diner.  Clint tells me that he still has the Butterfly Bout and is thinking about doing it himself.  Well that is when i let the the whole table know  what i have been thinking.

some more history

Years ago i heard a sermon given.  i do not remember who it was or what their point was, but what i do remember is this " jump in with both feet."

Present Day
That has always been in my mind, i have never jumped in to anything with both feet cause i am afraid that i might miss something. Well I told the table that i am jumping in with both feet.  I am willing to put it all out there to make the Butterfly Bout cause i think it is that good and i want to share it. but jumping in is not just for the Butterfly Bout it is for everything i want to do Wood Turning and House Flipping.  God will take care of it. I just need to fully trust him and he will make great things happen.
