      Thank you Scott. Next time, warn me so I can relax and it won't hurt as bad. wink.png

      -----------------------------------

      My daughter and I are heading to SC/NC on Wednesday morning. I am going to visit my Dad in Franklin, NC for a few days and she is going to hang out with Lady_B's sister and her kids at the lake. I need time to spend with my Dad, I feel very drawn to go see him. I am looking forward to it but also a little nervous about that feeling. Enough said.

      Alabama Road Trip (part 1)

      Well we headed up to Alabama to visit our online friends Scott and Linda, two people who we have wanted to meet for a couple of years now. I can say, without any hesitation, they are some of the most awesome people to just hang out with! (did I mention some dork backed out on meeting us....for the 2nd time! I don't think he likes us anymore *sniff*) wink.png

      Well since they live in Dothan, Alabama(stan), and it is the 'Peanut Capitol of the World' we decided to ask Scrat if he wanted to travel with us. He was very excited at the thought of seeing 4 foot tall peanuts, and the little bugger insisted on driving. Yeah, I know....probably not the best idea huh.

      He was pretty good though, he checked the maps to make sure he knew how to get up the West coast of FL...
      Scrat1.jpg

      Then he double checked the Alabama map to see exactly where Dothan is.....
      Scrat2.jpg

      Ok, off we go down Interstate 4 out of Orlando....
      Scrat3.jpg

      We drove till about 11:00pm where we stopped and got a motel room in Perry, FL. Now I don't mind sharing the bed but Scrat is a pillow hog!
      Scrat4.jpg

      The next morning Scrat was doing some research on this whole Peanut Sculpture thing, and when he was done, and I had cleaned the drool off my screen, it was back on the road again.
      Scrat5.jpg

      Yes, he insisted on driving again, but heck, he was making pretty good time.
      Scrat6.jpg

      ALABAMA! (you got to hear it in your head like Forest Gump says it) Now just a quick trip up the road to Dothan and our friends!

      Stay tuned Taters, more journals to come detailing our trip and our meeting with RvB's representatives in Dothan.

      Well he was one of the millions
      who signed up to defend us
      long ago in 1941
      when they sucker punched us in Pearl Harbor
      he fought under Macarthur seventeen with an army Thompson gun

      Well he stormed a lot of beaches slept in jungles with the leaches
      he saw things young man should never see
      and when they shot him in the shoulder
      he got back up and he marched over
      left a lot of brothers dead in kawagalie

      If it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
      there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land
      and I see people on my T.V. taking shots at uncle Sam
      I hope they always remember why they can
      cause we’d all be speakin’ German livin’ under the flag of Japan
      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

      Well I’m the grandson of a soldier and I’d fight the whole world over
      if duty called and freedoms on the line
      but thanks to the greatest generation and the ones still fighting for our nation
      I’ve never had to kill for my way of life

      If it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
      there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land
      and I see people on my T.V. taking shots at uncle Sam
      I hope they always remember why they can
      cause we’d all be speakin’ German livin’ under flag of Japan
      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man

      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
      there wouldn’t be a breath of freedom in this land

      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man
      if it wasn’t for the good lord and the man


      This made me want to stand up and yell "HELL YEAH!"

      People forget way to fast and WAY too often who gives us the freedom and what it cost them and their families. It is not the law maker....it is the Enforcer who puts his life on the line to insure freedom.

      I am sitting in a hotel room in Perry FL, south of Tallahassee. Why you may ask? Well, you see there are these two awesome people up in Alabama who we have been wanting to meet for some time now. Yep, the little woman and I are on our way to meet Scott and Linda.

      WHOO HOOOOO!

      My wife journaled on this earlier and we have just found out that Josh will be there too!

      AWESOMENESS!

      Yep, it is a RvB road trip! I love these. Traveling to meet the people we have become friends with, people who I know are worth driving 6 hours for. I can not wait to shake their paws and get some fun time in downtown Dothan Alabama(stan).

      Did you know Dothan not only has the world's smallest city block, but also sports 60 peanut sculptures in the downtown area? YEAH! I know, who would have thunk it!!! They are the proclaimed Peanut Capitol of the World! Well me and my good buddy Scrat are awful excited about that, if we can just keep him from eating all the sculptures. Pictures will follow!

      Howdy everyone,

      The filming we did for the Dr. G Medical Examiner show on Friday went well. The three guys that came to the house to film were very cool and did a great job. It was emotionally taxing as I am sure you figured, but overall it went well. I heard details of that morning I have never heard before, but I have not asked my wife for step by step details either, I don't need to know and it is not something I want her to relive. She told them what happened and then I told them of receiving the call in my hotel room in PA and what happened from there. Thinking about it is one thing, speaking it out loud was very hard, but theraputic.

      The hardest question was "If you could talk to Garion one last time, and tell him anything, what would it be?". That question took my breath because you do think about that quite often, and that one hurts. I told them also that one very hard thing to wrap your head around is you will never have anymore pictures of him, no family videos with him in them. Just one of those hard things to process. If you're a parent that is an overwhelming thought.

      The crew was crying too while they filmed, parts were very hard to speak and listen to. But again, it was good and if it helps one person then it was worth every bit of what we went through. smiley12.gif

      The bronco.
      His name is "Justice" smiley11.gif

      I started the tear down of my 1984 Full Size Bronco last night with my cousin Steve (a mechanic) who I grew up with. The old fella is getting a new camshaft kit to pick up some low end torque I lost when I put the 33"x12.5" Pro Comp Mud Terrain tires on it. He will also receive a Edelbrock dual plane performer intake manifold and Edelbrock 600cfm carb to replace the old stock Holley that is worn out.

      My truck came with the 351 Windsor 4v High Output Mustang motor from that year so it is already above average for bronco engines and is a power plant for sure, but this will pick up some more giddy up!

      I also bought some nice stamped Aluminum valve covers that are black powder coated and say "Bronco powered by Ford". They are sharp!

      I will go back tonight to pull the cam out and start cleaning parts to prep for paint and reinstall. I have been taking pictures and will post some maybe tonight or tomorrow.

      RBuffordTJ

      HAPPY TUESDAY! ok, I know its nothing like Friday to most of you but so far it is ok.


      ----------------------------


      The Buffords on TV
      Friday a film crew will be coming to our home to film an episode of Dr. G Medical Examiner for the Discovery Health Network.

      When our son Garion passed away last year it was found to be complications from Arnold Chiari Malformation Type 1. Yeah, who would have figured? So anyway, Dr. G is the medical examiner for Orange County FL, where we live, and she did his autoposy and found what happened. Because death from this is not a common occurance (but it does happen) they have asked if we would allow them to do a program based on Garion and his condition. Her program has been on for several years and she is flown all over the country to help on complex investigations...she is good!

      After talking it over we figured it was a good way to spread awareness of this condition which is a hard diagnosis and not researched as much as it should be by the 'professionals' in the medical community. They will be in our home to film us talking about Gaion, who he was, his life and his medical condition. It will be hard I am sure, but if it helps ONE person out there it is worth every second. I will keep you posted on when it will be broadcast.

      To me this is very sad news as this author's books are where both of my children's names came from. I am reading one of his last series of books now and he was truly my favorite author.

      Fantasy master David Eddings dies aged 77

      I hit my Stumble button and the article popped up. I am sad. This is one serious loss to my library. If you have never read any of his books you are missing out on something great.

      Rest in peace Mr. Eddings. sad.png

      You don't want your children home for Christmas?


      Actually I do - but as we are a big blended family, it is hard to co-ordinate things at the best of times.... We do still have the dogs - they are our kids too!

      This is the first year that we have been able to co-ordinate with the other parents involved. Next Christmas we have all 6 of the kids.... (except by then, one will technically be an adult - scary)
      The kids come back soon after Christmas - but at different times. The good side of this is that we get to celebrate Christmas at least 3 times smiley0.gif .

      Sometimes parents can harm their children a long time and never even realize they are doing it. Hopefully they didn't set out to harm you or not respect you but sadly it is easy to harm a child and watch them carry that into adulthood.

      Keep your eyes on God, He is the goal and He is the benchmark.
