Miami Sun

Summer is officially here - and I'm officially not ready for my bikini - which means, I'm sporting this retro one-piece until I can effectively get my tush into shape.

That's where my girl, Kaci Coble, comes in: she's got a blog with so much information on food, lifestyle, choices, attitudes, cooking tips, grocery shopping ideas - you name it.  So...I'm gonna waddle my little fat heinie over to: http://www.kacicoble.com/ for some "Big, Fat Secrets".

'Cause really - I prefer wearing a one-piece.

Wish me luck - and some self-discipline wouldn't hurt, either.

Just found your site. Great to catch up on what's happening with my old friend. Maybe one day we can get back in touch. I enjoy the videos too. I'm impressed with your abilities and determination to learn the guitar. I knew you could do anything you set your mind to.

Stay strong. Glad to hear/see Miami is treating you well. You and Jack that is.

June 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld Oklahoma friend

I'm glad you found it. I'm glad you're here.

I miss you. And, Jack would like to meet you, you know.

June 11, 2010 | Registered CommenterHillary Banks

I would like to meet Jack. How are you so sure who this is? Song request: Falling slowly...

June 18, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld Oklahoma friend

I can't say, for certain. (But, I've got a feelin'...)

I just took a look at "Falling Slowly" - Beautiful. I wish I'd brought my guitar with me on this trip - I'd try it out, today. I'll have to bust out my step-dad's guitar - when I get to OK in a couple of days - and try it out.

June 19, 2010 | Registered CommenterHillary Banks

Let me ask you this...

When you come to OK are you driving a "Ford Fiesta - Better than Ever! Want to drive you..."

Cant wait to hear the song.

June 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld Oklahoma friend

"Ford Fiesta - just one Li-tre." Haha!

I'm not drivin' - I'm flyin'.

June 22, 2010 | Registered CommenterHillary Banks

I got to thinking...
You couldn't say for certain who I am. Does that mean you have multiple friends in ok who prefer toremain anonymous...?

That's impressive..

June 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld Oklahoma friend

Impressive - or sad - I'm not sure which.

I prefer to stay "in touch" with people - and there's a couple people out there who've fallen off the map, for me.

I'm glad you found me, Mister. I'd been wondering what you were up to...

July 16, 2010 | Registered CommenterHillary Banks

I'm not off the map, just silently enjoying 2 of my own gifts from God.
They're beauiful.

October 12, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld Oklahoma Friend

Did you guys have a baby!?

If so, congratulations are in order!

I miss you very much - and I ran across your blog the other day. The approach you put together for your wife - to combat anxiety...I should've put that into practice years ago. I have my own struggles with depression and anxiety. Sometimes, I fear they've already overtaken me.

Catch me up on what's new, if you can. I sure would love to celebrate these milestones with you!

October 13, 2010 | Registered CommenterHillary Banks

Yep. 2 kids actually! I'll try and get you some pics.

Glad you found the blog, I'll try and post more regularly knowing there's at least 1 reader...

Love to follow this one. Keep the postings and songs coming. You headed to OKC anytime soon?

October 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld OK Friend

I'll be there for Thanksgiving - and I'm going to the Thunder game the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving!

I'll be there from the Friday before to the Friday after.

Would love to see your family at some point - but, I'll only be in OKC for a couple of days....and I know that's a busy time.

Maybe you've got some pictures of your sweet kids? I'd love to see them!

Miss you, friend.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHillary

I Miss you too.

There are only a few people in this world who truly understand me. You're one.

October 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOld OK Friend

The feeling is mutual, my friend.
You're spectacular.
