survival of the fittest

by | Tuesday, August 26, 2008 | i know she's deaf but shouldn't one of her other senses kick in?  at the very least it seems she should sense a very large object looming behind her...or perhaps she just doesn't give a rat's ass.

this has been a rough month for dave & i in terms of our workload - we've been working a lot of very, very long days. this got the better of me on monday and i pulled a “costanza” in the factory. apparently i was only asleep for a few minutes but i have to tell you it felt like the best sleep of my life. we did get a chance to experience some top-notch entertainment thursday night when we went to see bruce springsteen at the arena in nashville. i should mention that i was not a fan of...

just a few things that need to be mentioned.  first off i want to profusely thank you for the amazing emails i've received since i started this blog.  i feel like a little too much altruism is being attributed to dave & i but it is definately much appreciated...flattery will definately get you everywhere.  i'm still struggling with the idea of the blog - to think that people would actually be interested in reading about our life seems a bit pompous.  i also...
