Gantz Jaunt #1

As a high school quarterback, I ran an option play near the end of a game.  32 yards later I crossed the goal line for the winning score.  The local newspaper ran this headline the next day, Gantz TD Jaunt Lifts Chiefs.  My teammates made fun of me for days.  I heard all kinds of jaunting jokes.

One dictionary provides this definition of the word: a short excursion or journey for pleasure.  So in the spirit of a bygone day of glory, I am beginning a new blog feature called Gantz Jaunt.  This feature will be short excursions or journeys for pleasure.  I will enjoy them.  I hope you will, too.  Perhaps somebody can create a nice image or logo for me to use with these posts.  If you are the creative sort, send me your best stab at it.

* Church Mag referenced the P2P article, Attending a Church for the First Time on their website.  Thanks guys.

* It is a great time of year for sports fans.  Baseball pennant races are winding down and football season is kicking off.  I am hoping that the Texas Rangers finish strongly in baseball.  I am excited that the Oklahoma Sooners begin the season ranked #1 in the country.

* Suzie and I tried to relax and watch a movie together the other night.  I am so disappointed in the quality of movies these days.  I’m not even talking about sex and violence in the movies.  There are just some really bad movies out there.  I am hoping to see The Help and The Debt.  These two movies might restore value in my mind.

* Now that the boxes are unpacked and most things are in place in our new home, I am looking forward to getting back on a good reading schedule.  So many good books.  So little time.

*  Living miles and miles away from my biological family members can be difficult at times.  I am grateful for the technology that allows for us to talk on the phone, chat on-line, see pictures and (the best) do video chats on line.

*  This is a picture of my new work area.  I have a sleek desk with a great view.
