My grandparents used to own a trailor in the flint area I believe. It was a nice place where a bunch of old farts used to live. I dont really remember a whole lot about it, but one thing I cant forget about it was the time that we rented Boyz In The Hood. (Yeah me and my brother were ghetto even back then.)

I was watching it when my grandma saw the scene where there is some "T and A." She turned the T.V. off.... it was kind of funny. Another thing I kind of remember was a pond where we used to hang out to maybe look at some fish. I think we just spent the night out there a few times.

Most grandparents dont have much in terms of sweets around the house. This one time my family was staying with my grandma for more than a week and my brother and I were really needing some sweets.

So we raided the closets only to find a bag of worthers originals.  They somewhat did the trick.  But eventually my grandma hid them on us. It was hilarious when we found out about it and I guess you just had to be there. Apparently my grandma never passed kintergarden where you learned to share.

I remember I used to think that it was a good idea to give people money when they asked for it on the street. It seemed like the charitable thing to do. Then, probably like most of you, I was introduced to the idea that people who are homeless are in that situation because they have burned bridges and that they will most likely take the money you give them to the liquor store. Still, it troubles me to just walk past someone who could potentially be in need.

Well, somewhere along the road someone introduced me to the idea of buying someone a meal when they asked for money for food. So I tried it once when I was going to U of M Flint.

There was this homeless black guy that asked me for money for food so I asked him if I could buy him lunch. He accepted and we waited in line in the food court at Subway. I would like to say that we ended up having a life-changing conversation or that I lead him to Jesus or something but nothing like that happened. Instead, as soon as we were . . . Read More..

So I only started running recently. My dad was my inspiration for entering races. I figured that I could do it if he could, being 27 years older than I am. So I signed up for the 8K race last year and my Dad and Dave as well as some other co-workers ran in the 10 mile race.

It was cool to go back to downtown Flint since I went to college there and to see so many people there. My Dad and I walked through the hotel where they were selling running accessories. It's amazing the things that they sell runners like nipple guards and energy jelly beans. I ate a nice pancake breakfast in the outdoor theatre and met up with Olaf and Dave, I think.

We waited in a long line for the bathroom at one point in the university pavillion and I think I remember some guy being weird in line. Dave, do you remember this?

Anyway, the 10 mile race started before my race so I watched my dad cross the starting line and then headed towards the car to get another water or something. It was cool walking the . . . Read More..
