Do you own a suit?

phd031408s.gifJen Slackenerny from PH.D. raises an interesting question: “What kind of grown man doesn’t own a suit?” I don’t own one.  Not even a sports coat.  I’ve got a couple of dress shirts hanging in the closet.  A ton of ties. (When I worked for Eckerds, we had to wear them.  I liked collecting the weirdest ones that i could find.) I don’t go to weddings or funerals.  I don’t really dress up for anything.  God knows that I don’t date any more.

Anyone else care to step up and admit that they don’t own one?

We’re moving…

Changing hosts.  If you see the red banner up top, you’re at the old site.  I’m going to switch over to a gray layout once the move is complete.

edit: Currently rebuilding. Things may be broken for a bit.

What should I write next?

I’m thinking about doing some more writing in the future and was looking for some input on what to start off with.  Feel free to comment:


edit: Added a link to Mission to Hell Chapter #1

Looking back at January



Breakfast was cool.  Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits.  I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind.  I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC.  Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge.

I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January.  I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.)

Under the bridge at 6:20am

I100_0695‘ve mentioned a number of times that I do work with some of the area organizations that work with the area homeless.  I took this picture this morning under the bridge as both volunteers and  neighbors were waiting for the supply van to show up.  It’s 6:20am in the morning, it’s still dark, directly overhead is I-277 that loops around the uptown area of Charlotte, and it was something like 30 degrees this morning.

I would have taken more but the batteries died in the camera. (I’ll explain more about that later on.) I just wanted to share the picture.

Someone asked for a picture…

CIMG0008Gotta admit that I hate doing pictures but I had someone send me this one from when I was on the first train out of the station when the LYNX light rail system started on Nov. 24th.  Even beat all the higher ups who were supposed to be on the first train. (Not sure why.  We started at the 7th Street Station while they started at the Transit Center.)

Got lucky as well.  Had just finished helping Calvary Church serving breakfast to the homeless that morning.  I was walking over to CPCC to use the library and the train was just sitting there.

Got a t-shirt out of it at least.
