The Kid Bows Out and Other Happenings this Weekend


Last Friday was Logan’s last performance with the Laughing Matter Teen Improv Group at the Clark Youth Theater here in Tulsa. He is aging out of the program. Heather and were trying to figure out how long he has been with the program. We think that it has been about eleven years but we are not sure. What kind of crappy parents are we anyway??


He’s really enjoyed it and it has been fun watching the other kids grow up also. We are going to miss it. He hasn’t really started looking at what’s available for him now in the community but we’ll keep you posted. He just finished his first year of college and did very well. His mother and I are pleased.


The kids have really blossomed. Maybe they blossomed too much. They are an independent bunch and I think that is a good thing.


Saturday morning we did our cat rescue gig at the the Petsmart in Broken Arrow. We have gotten kind of fond of the cats and are happy that they all eventually get adopted.


There were three new ones Saturday morning. The one above is a male that got caught in a fence and some asshat shot him with a bb gun. He’s a sweetie but he is a little traumatized by his new surroundings. He’ll make somebody a great cat.


After the cat gig Heather and Logan went home and I went geocaching. I’ll post in detail about it later but I bushwahacked for 0.3 miles through the woods alongside the Verdigris River looking for a geocache. All told I spent two hours Β on that gig and didn’t find it. Three ticks found me though! The cache above is one I found later. I guess that I can find them if they are painted pink and have yellow caution tape so that I don’t trip over it. Yep, I love geocaching whether I find them or not.


We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy II later on. Heather and Logan loved it, and me I was just confused. Still am. We did build a fire in the patio and chill out for a bit afterward though.


Sunday was a work day at the house. Logan and I mowed the yard. Heather “amended” the soil. I got my chainsaw down and cut down a volunteer tree in the greenbelt behind the fence. We got a lot done, heathen pagans that we have turned into.


Later on we went to Nana’s house (Nana is the world’s greatest MIL) and grilled burgers and chilled. That’s Nana’s dog Reba above. She is my model for chilling.

And that’s a wrap on the weekend. How was yours?

    I’m sure that Logan will find a new activity to feed his creative side. College is a tough transition for everyone and making it through the first year can be the hardest year of all. He will probably find his sophomore year easier than his freshman year. I like the idea of spending a little time at PetSmart with the rescue critters, even though I am not a cat person per se.

    awww poor cats, good to see someone being nice to them…as for your teenager it’s great to see him growing as a person, that’s what it’s all about I think, helping our kids grow to be better people.

    I’ve so enjoyed watching Logan grow up into such a handsome young man. Hard to believe he’s now a college student. Maybe he’ll find another theater program. Being in school is such a great way to be exposed to many possibilities.

    What sweet kitties! I volunteer with my local Humane Society. Tomorrow I’m working with the cats and sometimes I work with the dogs. Isn’t it heartwarming when they get adopted by an enthusiastic family?!

    I have been following you for quite a while now and I can say with 100% certainty that you and your sweet lady are the best parents. Logan is a fine young man. Even though this one door is closing to this particular stage, I look forward to learning about the many others that will be opening. Please pass on to Heather A Happy Mother’s Day, and your Mum-in-Law also, one day later πŸ™‚
