15 days until I leave to go skiing in Durango. It's been a while, I can't wait to get to the snow. We're going back in February, too. I'm determined to ski a coulple blacks this year. Bones heal.

The XM Sattelite Radio is pretty cool... Kind of overwhelming. You can't hit seek like you would on a regular radio, so I've learned to punch buttons without looking down... Or is it changing stations and driving without looking at the road? Hell, I don't know.

So far, the country stations haven't caught me. I'll still be using the CD player and 95.3 KHYI for my listening pleasure. The best so far is the comedy station. I had to sit out in my truck for a few minutes earlier, I was laughing so hard at Brian Regan that it looked like I was crying. Couldn't come straight in the office teary eyed, I do have this tough guy image to maintain. And if I did the "quote of the day thing," it would have to come from Stephen Wright... "If I melt dry ice, can I swim in it without getting wet?"

The Discovery Channell and Ask! is pretty cool, my truck is almost going to become a place of learning. Good news selections., but it's still hard to beat WBAP 820 for the morning commute.

One really neat thing is the "Classic Rap" station. I did not know there was Classic Rap, and I also did not know that I liked Classic Rap. I guess Classic Rap means the rappers are "OG's," or guys that have lived way past their 25 year life expectancy. When I first heard mention of the Classic Rap station, I thoght they said Plastic Wrap. Who know, some Saran Wrap might put out some pretty cool tunes if it was given a chance. You never know if you don't try.

Christmas was great. Mandy had to work half a day, but no big deal. Luke loves his blocks we got him... He has more fun knocking them down, but he's learning to build with them. Mandy likes her sunglasses and camera bag. I got XM Sattelite Radio, and it's way cool. A little overwhelming, I think there's 150 channels, but there's always something cool on there. I specifically like the comedy channell and discovery radio, neat stuff.

It was really nice to have the time off, Mandy and Luke were sick over Thanksgiving so I didn't get a break at all then. Morning came early today... Just 4 or 5 days and the clock gets used to sleeping late. Having a one year old, late means 7 or 8, but it was still a good recharge period.
