Rough takeoff

I like coffee. No, I love coffee! I enjoy it very strong, black, and fresh. Every. Single. Morning. But not this morning because I'm sick. And it hasn't been very fun. I have my Keurig set to warm up...

 

That was nasty

It's not Halloween yet, but I have got a horror story for you! Well, it's not that bad, I'm being a little dramatic. The other night, Susan and I were tuning into Big Brother on CBS in our room,...

 

In support of VAWA reauthorization

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox recently issued a press release in which he talked of a letter he sent to congressional leaders and chairs of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, urging the lawmakers to vote to reauthorize the Violence Against...

 

Late night cravings

It's hard being addicted to food. Being a premature child, I was pretty skinny until the age of seven. I think I know how that all changed; my late Godmother. When I was about six or seven, it was bec...

I have tasted greatness

It finally happened. Recently I wrote a three-part series of how I missed out on Taco Bell's Nacho Fries. I can finally say that I had a chance to taste the greatness that was those nacho fries. It...

Winter blues in August

Another Phillips County Fair has come and gone and what comes next, though exciting in their own rights, sort of depress me. The end of this year’s fair marks the beginning of fall and then winter, and with each year that passes, I wonder how many...

Is that a real word?

People often hate or fear what they don't understand. Something that freaks me out is a hairless pet. I guess when you're told your whole life that domesticated animals are furry and cuddly, you get...

The signs where there

Yes, my boy has glasses. A few weeks ago we took PJ to an optometrist just to make sure he could see well. I should have known that he would have to wear glasses at an early age, given that both his...

Trying to stay hydrated

We will see how long this lasts. Believe it or not, when I lived in Florida, I tried my hand at jogging. I would huff and puff up and down the street for a two-mile outing while my band was not...

My Great failure, Part II

Back to my quest for Taco Bell fries. So, my first attempt at eating Taco Bell in Billings was mired in what I call “bell lust,” where I lost sight of the mission to eat Taco Bell’s French fry a...

My great failure Part 1

Several months ago I found out that Taco Bell was going to serve french fries. As many locals know, the closest Taco Bell from Malta is 200 miles away. I have loved Taco Bell since I was in utero....

 

I am human after all

Well. It happened. It was a couple of months ago but it happened. I did something that my mother and father did to my brothers and me when I was younger but what I did was so much worse. Around the sixth month of Susan’s pregnancy, we came up with...

 

I'm no spring chicken

CHANGE A game of catch almost ended in a hospital visit for me. I am kidding but I was in pain for a day or two afterwards. Getting older at the ripe age of thirty is tougher than I thought. I remember when I was younger working at a Walgreen’s...

New dad all over again

Normally when you are a “veteran,” it means that you have experience with a particular career or event and you should know what you are doing. On Friday, March 30, Susan and I welcomed our second...

 

Out of thin air

News does travel fast in a small town. Sometimes that news is definitely fake. As of Monday, March 13, I have had no intentions of quitting my job here at the PCN or mov-ing, or anything like that. But twice last week and once the week before...

Can't wait for Spring

This has been a brutal winter and I am glad I have experienced it with you. Going around town last week, I have talked to quite a few people who have told me that this was the roughest winter Montana...

Will I ever lift again?

I was supposed to start my New Year’s Resolution today. Of course, at the time I am writing this, it is the first day of March. I wasn’t in a good spot to start working out again on the first of...

 

The Flu or Zoo season?

I have been getting a kick out of how much PJ enjoys animals. The little guy has been sick for about a week now and that has been really sad to see. We went to the clinic twice last week, because when your three-year-old has thrown up a couple of...

 

That was nasty

I am snobbish about my coffee. My love for the dark, heart pounding drink started when I was young and Starbucks was not yet a household name. In those days, I had no idea how to make a cup of...

 

Not bad at all PCH

My wife and I were on our way to Glasgow to have a look at our unborn child and somehow emergency room situations came up. We were out of town this past fall and a medical emergency came up where a...

 

Clearing some space

INFO I cleaned out our medicine cabinet the other day. I remember when Susan and I first became home owners many people saying that you accumulate a lot of stuff over the years. In cleaning out old...

 

Isn't that nice?

PJ has never been a cuddler. Maybe I had been holding him wrong. When you think of a baby, you think of a small human that wants to be held every day. Or at least that has been my interpretation. That...

 

It's been a while

I appreciate the patience. As you all know our editor was out for a few weeks, so I had the chance to gain valuable experience as a short term newspaper editor. I am proud of how our short-handed...

 

We are Thankful

We had a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving. I have to admit I am not completely a fan of sonograms as far as checking in on developing babies, but we had one the day before Thanksgiving. I get that they like to make sure that the baby is...

 

Cold? It is 'smoking season'

It’s like I blinked and then all of a sudden winter happened. I found out very quickly upon moving here in 2012 that Montana Weather doesn’t play by the same rules as other states that I have...
