Home Stretch

Things are coming to a close with us and Oklahoma. Today is my last full day of work at OUHSC.

Melissa has been packing like crazy at home. I cannot thank her enough.

I had my last band practice with the Subatomic Pieces last night.
It went really well. I will really miss those guys and that music.

Sunday night will be a great evening. It will be my last concert to play in Oklahoma. In addition to playing with Subatomic Pieces, I was invited to play with Student Film(band I used to be in). Oh it will be a rockin' time.

We close on the house Monday afternoon, then the movers arrive Tues. morning. We will then pack up the dogs and a few days worth of clothes, and hit the road.

First stop will be Tulsa to stay with my parents for a couple of days. Then we head out to Paragould Ar. to do the same with her parents.

Melissa's brother Chad has volunteered to make the journey with us to Oregon to assist with dog wranglin'. I really think this will be an enjoyable trip.

I have learned a lot about not worrying when you shouldn't, and letting things go a little more "unplanned". I look back on some fun times of being a teenager and I think that really was part of the fun. Let go of worry, let things happen as they will. But again it must be balanced a little with planning and preparations, and of course money.

So here's to Oklahoma! Here's to all the people we know. We will miss you all, and hope you come visit. I have spent my 29+ years in Oklahoma. It is time to move on and try something way different. I don't regret living here at all. I would have never had the good times and never met the great people I know now.

I hope you all stay tuned and part of our lives in anyway you can. Whether it be email, this website, myspace, or visiting in person. I promise to post when I can and provide photos.

Y'all take care now....

now you're just TRYING to make people cry.

I really do wish that we'd become friends much sooner. I appreciate the time you've spent helping with the band and just being a cool dude.

I'll definitely stay in touch both virtually and in person.

<3 you!

Even though we do not see much of each other these days, I am very happy to have spent the time that we did years ago. Whether it was playing Harvester of Sorrow or horrible jazz I think we had some fun times in each other's company. It makes me proud that your band was the first on Plum-e. It is too bad that G-string never got off the ground...
Take care, look me up at the holidays

i hate to have to remind you that the best time you ever had wasn't in oklahoma, it was actually in a dirty motel room outside of champaign, illinois. and it wasn't with melissa, it was with me and ryan.
