Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Moving Day

While the rest of my summer crew is off frolicking and camping at Pedernales Falls, Kayla and I have packed up the U-Haul and are ready to pull out to head to her new digs. Mutt and Jeff (yes, that would be us) were unbelievably (and comically) able to get Kayla's mattress and box springs from her second story apartment to the truck. Thanks for nothing, No Show Ryan...there will be no dancing from us at your wedding. The moving gods were looking over us as we put plan B, the banister slide maneuver, into play. Phew, it was tricky, but we pulled it off. After getting it all packed up, we drew straws to see who's good fortune it would be to drive the U-Haul for the move. Lady Luck deemed Kayla the winner. Well, it didn't exactly go down like that. It was more like, "Not no, but HELL NO, will I be driving a moving truck anywhere, much less Naconowhere!". Enough said. Drive on, K.K., Nacogdoches is that way.

"I think I'm gonna be sad,
I think it's today, yeah.
The girl that's driving me mad
Is going away."

  1. Hope all goes well! Maybe you will get some help when you get there! Some of the guys might want to check out the "hot" new chick!

  2. Boy, did we ever get some help! We had a greeting committee of about ten strong guys to unload everything in ten minutes. She's all unpacked and ready to roll on Monday morning.

  3. I had no doubt that some guys would offer to help if they got a look at Kayla!!


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
