Where is Target?

After arriving late to the Temple and missing a session we were able to help elsewhere and enjoyed our time at the Temple. Always a good time!

For our date night we went looking for the new Target. Jen holds her Target finding apparatus. This isn't Target...
neither is this...
Don't think we're getting closer...on we go.

But wait, here it is, we found it! Only a few short months...till V-Day for the Mat-Su valley!

I don't think the sign could get any larger it wouldn't fit in the picture. This store is huge. One neat thing about it is the Alaskan flag on the side that is as big as the building, sculpted into the wall.

Although this is an ARMY custom made bike it was pretty cool. Unfortunately they wouldn't let us drive it.
Yet another ARMY car, but this one has two strikes against it...the second is it's the C word that I don't say on my FORD BLOG.
Here is my first love I can't mention her name here, but she was so nice to see again I pet her neck like she used to love so much.
I have my everlasting love now and Sherry...I mean Jennifer is her name! Ha Ha just a joke don't get all bent out of shape.
Cause here is my love right on TARGET!! She flusters me so; I get weak in the knees.
Look out people TARGET is coming to Alaska! I will be the first in line with TARGETS number one fan!!
So you may know that TARGET is opening on are we going to get out of the house without the kids knowing we went to the Grand Opening. So we came up with an emergency room visit to get retail shopping therapy! I'll need to rush her in right away; she has been in withdrawal for 2.5 years. This is just what the Doctor ordered.
What I need to know is the things they currently have so we can have a heads up on what to buy. No toilet paper or razor comments. thanks.

OK so you ever wonder how a bird sees the world below? This maybe one way. Or maybe this is the way a teacher sees the disruptive students head.
Or this!
I work with a lot of sureons but never really though how they see the world. Heart surgeons may see it this way? The only way I ever see them seeing the world is everybody bowing down to them (sorry Garth.)
Halloween is coming up soon. What do you think about Vampires? Is this the way they see the world as everybody a drinking fountain? This might be the way teenagers see eachother too. But we wouldn't know about that...right?
OK enough said!
As you can see I had a little fun with the really cool suckers that Target gave out at the Alaska State fair yesterday. We had more fun there yesterday than at any fair so far. The fire works were awosume. They had two grand finales. The 3-D glasses made every bright light a Target symbol, it was really neat. I can't wait till the store opens Jen is sooooo excited about it. We are going to be the first ones in the store opening day and on black Friday. I have more exciting pics to come with the suckers so stay tuned.

First Day of School

Well, here we go again...another year of some would say torture, others bliss, but most commonly called SCHOOL! This is what it looks like when you take five kids to school on the first day. Our Wing Commander gave us permission to take our kids to school in uniform to show that we support our kids and he encouraged us to continue to do so throughout the year. I'm glad I was able to take the kids I met the principal at PMJS, Garrett's teacher at Sherrod, and Maddie's teacher I knew from Kindergarten (she had him then). Really I enjoyed the short day at work I didn't get in till 1000 and did some work till 1100 ate lunch did some more work and left early.

I was supposed to go to school too, but the class canceled and I wasn't notified until basically a day before so I couldn't quit pull another class together in time. I am taking Business law and Principals of Management. I bought my books today and spent $250. on two books that I'll only be able to get about fifty each when I sell them back.

My week will be very busy Family Home Evening on Monday, class on Tuesday, scouts on Wednesday, class on Thursday, and date night on Friday. I can't wait till October 09 then I know all my classes will be done and I will have graduated and have started my Masters program.

Free Ride in a 1962 Ford Galaxie

Well it seems that offering a free stay in a luxury Bed & Breakfast isn't enough. I will also give free rides in my Galaxie plus free stays in a luxury B&B what do you think? Just take that into consideration!!

B&B INN the Wilderness

Either one of two things are happening or maybe both? Nobody is reading my blog or nobody wants to go to a luxury B&B in Alaska. If anybody out there has some rich Uncle, Mother, Friend, Oil Company CEO (like EXXON), please send them my way. I've determined that 10 investors with 100k each would get this place up to par and be the most luxurious in Alaska. They would be able to stay in the INN the Wilderness free of course for limited times and not all at the same time, so I can make some money to pay the bills.I see a million tons of potential. It will work some day, some how.

BMG Plus

Refer to the next blog!!!

A little more about INN the Wilderness or the Big Green Monster (BGM). It will be a luxury suite/banquet hall/commercial kitchen for rent. It is on the Matanuska river bank and at the base of Lazy Mountain.
It has a beautiful bike path starting on the property down to the river following the Old Glenn Highway. It is a peaceful setting and beautiful all year round.

BGM any Takers?

OK, I've talked to some people about this adventure. I think right know I should look for some "investors" to help out. Anyone that wants to take a vacation to Alaska anytime of the year and stay in a luxury suite, (for free) it will only cost you $100,000 donation (not free). If you are so inclined you can reply to this blog. I only need about 10 donations in the amount above.

I really need to get back in to this whole seen. I miss writing on my blog . I did the ride along last Saturday and had fun I don't know what it is about driving fast that puts a smile on my face but I was really trying to maintain my composure. We got close to a hundred once. chasing down some kids. We arrested a guy with a warrant, and tried to catch some speeders (no takers though).

I think I will try to become a cop while trying to figure out the "INN the Wilderness" thing. I hope at least one of them will work out! I am taking three classes this semester and hope to have my degree finished before spring semester so I can make graduation this coming spring instead of next October!
