    • So lets talk about....ME

      8 years ago

      RBuffordTJ

      Did you know Bufford has nothing to do with my real name?

      Did you know that I don't eat pork or shell fish?

      I bet you had no idea the one conutry I want to visit outside my United States is Australia!

      I think you alredy figured out I am VERY in love with my beautiful wife!

      Do you know that I keep a copy of the US Constitution on my phone with me at all times?

      Did you know that I have a Droid Incredible and love it?

      I wonder if you know my favorite color is Orange!

      Do you know that in college ball I am a FSU fan, but also root for University of Tennessee and Clemson?

      How about the fact I am a life long Miami Dolphins fan?

      Did you know I think it is stupid to drive a "Smart" car?

      Did you know that I love driving my wifes black 1979 Camaro because I like when people roll down the window to say "NICE CAR MAN!" just so I can reply "Its my wife's car".

      Anyone else tired of hearing all the politicians bickering back and forth about how bad the other side screwed things up and how only they can fix it?

      I think we need to get a handle on Washington, a flush handle.

    • School Update

      8 years ago

      RBuffordTJ

      School is busy, I am in Course 6 at the moment, Basic Electrical. I have no electrical background and it really had me worried, but funny thing, I ran into my rigging (Course 4) instructor right before my first night of class and he asked if I had done any plumbing. I told him yeah, some. Well he said just think about plumbing when they start talking about flow and you will see it come together pretty good. He went into a little more detail and when I got going it was pretty cool how it did come together. Now....I am by NO means ready to dive into someone's boat and start diagnostics but I am getting the basics down good. Next course is Advanced Electronics then Electronic Diagnostics which both are said to be pretty hard but its all good.

      I am very impressed with the school, and the instructors are very experienced. They come from all over the country and have a lot of good time in the field to share.

      A quick story, a guy in the Volvo Penta class was working out back the other night and grabbed an air hose from under a boat he was working on to get it out of the way. Well the air hose promptly turned around and sank its fangs into his right index finger! It was a Cotton Mouth The instructor quickly got the snake into a bucket while the ambulance was called and he was taken for treatment. The bad side is he may loose his right index finger due to the massive tissue damage from the venom. So now everyone outside has a habbit of kicking hoses before they pick them up...me included.

      More when I have time to post, Later Taters...

    • Rumors of my demise....

      9 years ago

      RBuffordTJ

      ....have been greatly exagerated.

      Yep, he lives. Bufford is alive and well...well alive and mobile anyway. So I'm going to give a brief update on whats up with life.

      I am still working for the state, however I have enrolled in school to learn a trade. I always said if I went back to school it would be to learn a trade of some kind, I always enjoy working with my hands so I figured it might be a good idea to have something to either fall back on or a new path to head off into.

      media-D2F8C061.png

      Yep, I am in school for Marine Mechanics. I am being trained to work on boats (everything involved with them) and their trailers. It is a lot of fun for me, the classes are very long and the scheduel is going to kill me probably, but I am learning a lot. Currently I work from 7am-4pm, then go home change and head to school from 6:20pm-11:30pm Monday-Friday. This is a 51 week school so for a year this is my scheduel.

      Yes, I am in fact tired. LOL

      My wife and daughter are amazing and supporting me completely, and for that I am VERY grateful! What a wonderful set of girls I have.

      Oh, and today is my birthday. I am 37yrs old today. Man...can someone slow this crazy train down some? (well lets finish this 51 weeks up then we can slow down).

      So whats up in your lives? What have I missed?

    • About our son.

      9 years ago

      RBuffordTJ

      To all our friends, site owners and moderators,

      On March 29, 2008, our 8 year old son, Garion, was found dead in bed at our home from unknown causes. After almost 4 months of investigation by the Orange County Medical Examiner, Dr. Jan Garavaglia, known better by her Discovery Health Channel television show "Dr. G. Medical Examiner", a cause of death was pinpointed. Our son had a rare, and to us unknown, condition which lead to his death while he slept peacefully in bed.

      All of you, and many people we have never met, reached out to our family with love, support and prayer while we grieved and came to grips with the sudden loss of our child. To this day I am still in awe of what a great family and friends God has blessed our lives with, and there are no words to convey our thanks for all you did at the worst possible moment in our lives.

      Because of this we wanted to share with you all an upcoming television documentary about our son and the condition that caused his death. The program will air on Discovery Health Channel's "Dr. G Medical Examiner", Monday January 18, 2010 at 9pm EST. We agreed to this filming in hopes it would bring information to light to help others and possibly spare someone else from the tragic loss we have suffered. You can get more details from the Discovery Health Channel's web page if you desire. Some of you have already called to say you have seen the advertisement running on TV for the show.

      January 21, 2010, would have been Garion's 10th birthday and we have decided to go to the mountains of GA for a famly get-away at a cabin in Blairsville. We will be leaving tomorrow, 1/15 and be back home Sunday 1-24. We will be there to celebrate his life and remember the amazing boy that touched so many in so few years. It is our desire that each of you spend a little extra time with family next week just enjoying them and all they mean to you.

      Please don't take our departure as a desire to be left alone, and we will have our phones and internet access while on our little vacation if you do want to talk. Again...thank you all so much! Please feel free to pass this on to everyone you know so they can watch the program on Monday, or catch it in a replay.

      Love to you all,
      Rick, Dawn and Adara Barber

      PS...by Monday Night you will also be able to go visit www.garionsgospel.com and see many pictures and read stories about our son and his life. The updates are being made now, and will be uploaded probably Monday afternoon.

    • My wife is so Awesome

      Awesome! Lady_B is exactly that and more.

      My wife goes out of the way so often to do things for me, even when I don't need her to.

      She likes to make me smile!

      She likes to see me with new projects!

      She enjoys hearing me giggle like a school kid over new tools & toys!

      My wife rocks! exclamation.png

      Tonight we went out to supper, then to a new Super Target (say it with the little fru-fru twist) and she ended up buying me something new to play with.

      What you ask?

      Well..........

      God bless each one of you for your service, foreign & domestic. The men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day. The people who become targets for our enemies by simply putting on their work clothes. I tip my hat to each and... every single one of you today as we remember the murderous act on our civilians, and the loss of life by those who did not run from the carnage but raced INTO it to help others. God bless each and every one of you!

      Oh Archery's such a great sport, luckily they had us try quite a few things while we were in school (Golfing and archery amongst them) and Archery was just fantastic!

      This going to be your first time trying it or do you often practice the sport? smiley0.gif

    • LampLady

      10 years ago

      I had no idea that that happened. I'm sorry to hear that, some people, I just don't understand what would make them behave like that. I'm so glad though that you refused to acknowledge them and that in even some cases their profiles were deleted.

      When I heard about your little boy, oh gosh, I cried and prayed so much for you and your wife and your daughter, I knew that he'd be okay, for he's an angel now, but I couldn't imagine what kind of hurting you must have all been going through. smiley12.gif

      But this is now a time of celebration, I'm really glad to hear that you had a good one. And here's to so many more great ones with your loved ones! smiley0.gifsmiley0.gif

      Thank you, that's exactly what I did smiley0.gif

      Their use to be a time when I cared too much about what people thought of me, and whether they'd be annoyed with me or not, but it's just not my thing anymore, and I don't want to deal with people like that so I immediately deleted and blocked them without an explanation.

      But enough of that, how was your birthday Mr. Bufford? I hope you had a great one! smiley1.gif

      I think that may be the understatement of the year saying the wait is brutal. But I do understand what you're saying about God's timing. In fact I was talking about that with my pastor yesterday. I know it in my head, but not in my heart...

      I'm not so much concerned about the pay if I were working for a police department, but I want to get into police work for the challenge, and the rewards one gets from doing such a public service. Ever since I was 16, I've wanted nothing more, and thanks to the recession, NO ONE is hiring...It was one thing to wait while in college to become a police officer, but everytime it seems that I take one step forward, I have to climb another mountain to be able to take the next step...

      So that added onto work, added onto nearly 6 years of waiting...well, I don't think I have to explain to you my desire and passion for police work, and how frustrating all of this is
