Traveling with my job isn't always what I enjoy the most. Actually, for the most part, it's what I like the least. But spending hours driving gives you time to think, listen to every song ever made, listen to sports radio so I pretty much know everything, etc..but sometimes things that you pass routinely all the time yet never stop to really observe come along. Especially when traveling backroads. I've passed this a lot driving from Charleston to Walterboro, SC. This was actually kinda cool and I've passed the sign for it countless times so I decided to stop. This is on the National Register. The Pon Pon Chapel of Ease. Established in 1725. Who knew. I've lived in SC for a LONG time and I'd never actually heard of this place before. Kinda cool. Sometimes we're all too busy trying to get somewhere that we don't actually take time to notice things we pass in our daily routines. I know I'm guilty of that.
Happy Birthday to my Punkin.. 😘😘
For those of you that know me, know my family, you know mom can absolutely sing. All my friends loved her voice. Even when we weren't paying attention in church. Everybody listened when she sang. It's apparent in this video neither me nor Jennifer got this gift.. you can still hear it in her voice. She's just got it. (we didn't ) Happy 29th (😂 ) birthday, mom. #stillhavingfun #greatvoices #happybirthday
Friggen bomb ass king crab legs. Booyah....
Arrived a few weeks ago, so delayed post. Ordered a handmade ukulele from Hawaii. Solid body made out of koa wood, which is endemic to Hawaii. It sounds fantastic, although, me playing it doesn't sound fantastic...yet...working on it and practicing. I'm getting better, though. 😊🤙🏼 Mahalo!! #hawaii #bountymusic
Happy Birthday to my niece, Dylan! Love you! ❤️
Happy Birthday to my Punkin. I love you!! ❤️
Look, I’m not afraid to compete against stiff competition to prove I’m the BEST. I make sure when I compete against somebody in anything I choose competition that pushes and challenges me. Just so I know I’ve still got it. I look for the top. Just so I know I’ve STILL GOT IT and I’m in PEAK PERFORMANCE!!! Even at....29....ehem!!! years old.. As you can see here in this video, let’s face it...and you all know I’m not boastful... I SMOKED IT!!! Still got it!! See that form?? Yup!! Sure, I might not still be able to run a sub 4.3 40 yard dash... but let’s face it, 4.32 in the 40 yard dash is still pretty fast!! (unofficial timing, but still..gotta be close to that.. ). I still have eligibility left....no, not just for social security or AARP..I’m talking about Division 1 scholarships.. I’m still basically Flash Gordon!! Plus I won $20 PER RACE. Ahhh..feels good to know I still got it when put to the test. ps-no, I didn’t show up barefoot, I just didn’t feel like loafers would be optimal in helping me win $40 and run like a cheetah!! #stillgotit #everydayI ’mhustlin’ #WINNING #thinkIpulledahamstring
First 2 pictures are me and my buddy, Bob, who were in a contest to see who could look like a local/non-tourist at the beach. Yeah..Bob’s from Pennsylvania. So I knew I had him beat. Although his shirt game was on-point, I must say. But, I was armed with knowledge he didn’t have. 1. ) ALL locals shop for authentic beachwear @ places like Eagles and Wings. Duh.. 2. ) REAL beach locals wear shark tooth necklaces. Double-DUH.. So while Bob came out strong with his tropical fish shirt, my parrot/generic beer bottle shirt, PLUS shark tooth necklace basically shotgunned me to the top. No way people around here thought I was from outta town..booyah.. #oki #beachlocallife #5oclocksomewhere #damnsandinmyshoes
Yes, I know. Yesterday was National Bourbon Day and whiskey technically doesn’t count/qualify as bourbon. BUT, still tapped into and enjoyed this High West Double Rye Limited Release. Love the SC/Palmetto and Crescent Moon label and I love High West WHISKEY. Cheers! 🥃 According to Wedding Crashers “Football and crab cakes...that’s what Maryland does!” Well... I think SC “does” football pretty damn well whether you’re a Carolina or Clemson fan. Or ALL schools in SC. So Maryland and crab cakes and football?? Aight.. “Football and shrimp-n-grits!! It’s what SC DOES!!” nationalbourbonday2018 #highwestdistillery #palmettostate #palmettoandcresentmoon #palmettostateproud
Brotha’ from anutha’ mutha’ (or could be my grandad...kidding Fred ). I’m rarely out in downtown Columbia anymore but had a great time downtown at #bourboncolumbia and rooftop bar the other night. Always a good time when Freddie can break away from Atlanta/corporate (with a “kitchen pass” from hands down his better half, his awesome wife.
That was my horse to the far right. No wonder my horse lost. Not even facing the right direction from the start. And yes @sarcher593 , that was your cue to remind everybody you had the winning horse.
She will be missed and always remembered. So many things in her obituary but my favorite paragraph and one that I’ll always remember her by: “She loved dogs, kids, birds and flowers. Joy in simple everyday quiet things was the hallmark of her personality. She strove, and with little need of effort, never to say anything negative about anyone, and never to complain about herself. In these ways, she exemplified a wisdom much admired by those who loved and appreciated her.” I know the accommodations of her next life. And I also know her suite will be filled with dogs, birds, kids, and flowers. #specialplaceinheaven
This is MY grandmother, Jane Steele. She'll be 98 July 27th. What I know is her best option is to be transferred to THE best specialist I know and that's my/her heavenly father. And my grandmother is MY biggest fan, the strongest woman I know at 96 pounds when she was healthy (she can't weigh more than 72 pounds or less now ) and was my rock because of all the "girlie girl" women in my family, SHE of all people was the sweetest softest most graceful MAN'S woman. I know where she's going and as much as it'll hurt to lose her in this life I know EXACTLY where her new residence WILL be and it's exactly where we all aspire to be one day. There’s not many people on this earth that nobody like or that has no enemies, but this sweet gift from God is one. ❤️ #unconditionallove #lovewhileyoucan #specialplaceinheaven
Made several new friends yesterday. Including this new friend. This little guy was just passing through checking out breweries across the US. Where was he just passing through from? Oh, not far. San Diego. Which is basically right down the street. Anyway, had a blast meeting my new bud, Simco. Thanks @hoppysimco . Always enjoy meeting new people and you know I love talking football. Cheers, bud(s )! #jordanlakebrewingcompany #simco #hoppysaturdays
