I love lazy rivers! When I was a kid I actually thought they were kinda boring, but I loved the idea of them.  Maybe I like them because they are like a clean moat around a castle...maybe I like them because its a strange mode of transportation. I love trains and their tracks so maybe this is just past of that in a different way.  Maybe I love that you can get in and not do a thing and you move. Well since that time I thought they were boring...I have aged....and become kinda boring. 

When I was a kid I always spoke of a dream house for my family, friends, and I. My original idea was a grande house that had a great garden where my mom could spend all of her time. No other worries... she could just garden which she would love. This house was also to have a pond where my dad could go and sit, read, nap, and fish. He would love it. I use to tell people this and they always thought it was nice.  I was sincere.  Then my house turned into this large house that was really many houses combined. In each different part of the house was a different friend. We could all have our space and yet still be able to hang at any point.  

Well as time went on, I found out how crazy my ideal house would prob make me crazy.  Being around people that much would be insane....especially since most people are crazy and have soooo many problems they don't want to address.  I still think that the garden for my mom near my house would be nice and the pond would have been awesome.

Then I started turning my ideas to stuff for me....I wanted a train going thru the on silver spoons. I wanted that. I still do....if not like least a little train going thru. 

Then I decided on a lazy river in a house....oh man. You can get in and float to other parts of the house. Also if you had to get somewhere and not be wet you could ride a SeaDoo or something....the walls would have to be high enough so as to not get stuff wet.  Anyway I recently saw this online.....

It is not quite what I was dreaming of but its headed in the right direction.  If I ever make it big...its coming...and friends and family are all invited.  It would make me soooo happy.

It has been awhile...

          I am sorry it has been sooo long since my last posting. Truth be told...I have a number of things I want to get off of my chest which has prevented me from posting.  Since my dads posting, I haven't wanted to post unless it was about him. I have so much more to say about him and he deserves more said from me. He was such a huge part of my life.  It has been hard for me. Today I have found the motivation to just post something little and easy to maybe get me going. 

This first pic I bet a few of you all have seen. 

I love this for so many reasons. My first thought that this bird had no clue what it was getting in to. My second thought is that this bird is going to be cleaning its self for a very long time if it didn't die in the chocolate.  My last thought it that this is what I would love to happen to me. I want to be this bird. I love chocolate that much. That last picture of the bird is me. I actually am ok if I die this way as well.  I LOVE CHOCOLATE!!!

Allison and Dad are some rocks of mine.

One year ago today I was lucky enough to marry my love Allison. It was a physically dreary day but it was such a beautiful day. In fact I would have it no other way. So many loving and close people came to celebrate with us. I was gaining a beautiful and strong lady in my life and I couldn't have been happier. It was such a special day.

 It was really a process of gaining a new rock in each others lives. The ceremony was really justAllison and I running thru the rock rules. We need to be there for each matter what is going on...we need to be there for each other. Allison and I are going to go thru a lot but a rock is something so important to have.  To let someone else be a rock for you is scary. You put so much into a person and hope they don't leave but hope they stay and help.  To truly appreciate have to open up to the rock....share experiences together...

It was so important to me that if he was able to...I wanted my dad to be my best man. He couldn't hear and had struggled with dementia and heart problems for years. I was told by a few to choose someone else. There was no choice to me. My dad had been my rock since I was born.  I mean a rock. A very strong loving man with a charm and humor that makes you feel at peace. My dad was there and we all celebrated together. It was such a special day.

Well my dad passed away this pass tuesday and though the day was was again a beautiful day shared with so many loving and caring people.  I lost a big rock in my life in my dad. It has hurt me so. I am going to blog on that later but not having him here is so hard. I can't put into words our bond or his love or my pain. That was a year ago that I gained a beautiful wife Allison.

I didn't know how Allison or I would handle this...Allison already having lost her parents and me losing one of mine for the first time.  Well Allison has been awesome. I wouldn't have been able to make it without her. She did everything asked and more. I can't tell you how much peace she has brought to me thru this hard time. I really lucked out with this rock of mine.  The loss of my dad hurts me so. I know I will lose more as life goes on but Allison reminds me without saying a word how much I have gained thru it all.

Here is a picture for our wedding last year with my dad and me walking together. I say goodbye to you for now dad but I will see you again. Until then...I know I have a beautiful rock here in my wife of a year.    Happy Anniversary Allison!!! I love you so!!! I hope to be a rock to you Allison as my dad was for me. Love you dad!!! Goodbye......for now

Game On Santa...Really?

I love Santa!
He travels the world spreading joy and hope while giving gifts. Look at the guy.

Look at him!

So he is nice, jolly, and giving.
 He loves animals and kids.
He is wise.
He rewards good behavior which promotes great values to future generations.
He has that awesome grandpa feel to him.  

I mean Santa loves kids a lot which I have a lot of respect for. I like a few of them...and can't stand a lot of them! 

This Santa guy...well he loves all kids.

Yet you have those that choose to pick fights with him.

The thing about this video that angers me isn't that Santa is being made to feel like a fool.  The thing that angers me about this video is that the lady who is trying to hurt the nice fat old man...well she is an idiot.

Why are people sooo confident in situations where they should have zero confidence?

So Santa brings free gifts...well this lady doesn't want his free gifts....she wants to pay for all of them smart lady.

This lady doesn't even let Santa know not to bring the gifts either....she wants to wait to tell him when he gets she is wasteful again but in a whole different way. Not even a "whoops I forgot" wasteful....but a "I'm a jerk"wasteful. Lets waste time and resources shall we?!

She also waits for him on her roof which has snow on it....late late at night....and not just any night ...Christmas Eve?  So now she is putting her life on the line to show this nice Santa guy what a jerk she is. She could die while her kids sleep but she doesn't care....she wants to pick on nice old fat man who is giving things away.  

Then...just to add to her stupidity and misplaced anger...she kicks a decorative Santa statue off of the roof??? Not just any roof...but her roof!!! Not just any statue....her statue!!!  Lets assume that her husband put the statue on the roof.  So she doesn't care about her husband now either all while trying to pick a fight with Santa. Now she is a bully

So she disrespects Santa and her husband. She puts her life on the line which shows she could give a flip about her family including the kids she bought gifts for. She stays up really late on this roof in the snow to pick a fight...which shows she's insane..

all of this I clearly see....yet there she is...being overconfident that Santa is the real jerk here.  

Watch it one more time now.....DO IT!!! Santa isn't feeling he is being out done by the lady..he isn't scared he might lose his job. Santa is actually scared...for his life. No longer will he fly to this house if he makes it out alive and I wouldn't either if I were him.  

Santa..I love you and you are always welcome to bring me whatever you want.

Bruce Willis sounded asian for a second.

I was watching Die Hard 2 the other day on TBS or something.  I happened to jump right into the movie near the big climatic scene. Knowing that Bruce Willis normally cusses here...I was quite interested in how they were going to pull this off without looking stupid.  Well the people editing this video decided to just go for full on stupid. 

I know this video is a little off but wow...Mr. Falcon????? I was sooo distracted by what I heard that I tried to make sense of it. Was there a bad guy named Mr. Falcon?  Are planes called falcons? Was Bruce Willis possessed for a second by a asian ghost who had just been talking to a Mr. Falcon?  Who is named Mr. Falcon anyway?  It sounds like a generic pilot from a war who saves the day. 

ANYWAY...I couldn't think of anything to excuse it. It was such a poor job that I ended up losing all emotion in the scene. Upon more research, Allison and I discovered that the guy who edited the sound has a cult following.  People somewhere were loving Mr. Falcon.

Not this guy...sorry Mr. Falcon....I am not buying it!

Judge Ross...Seriously?

I love Judge Judy and also Peoples Court. They hold a special place in my heart. Its the same feeling I have for The Price Is Right. I am not going to go out of my way to watch it all of the time but when I am home laying around and especially if I am sick......ohhh weeee....Its party time. Actually you know what.....I feel the same for AFV. That stands for Americas Funniest Home Videos.  Anyway....

The other day I was home in bed sick...and I turned on the TV to find Peoples Court on. It was great. I love watching the judges use facts and their wisdom to see right thru people and make great judgement calls.  I even strongly believe that you can learn a lot from these shows....You can learn law which is good...but the best part that you can learn about people.  You see how crappy and stupid they are.  

Well After Peoples Court a new show came on called America's Court with Judge Ross. 

Let me tell you something. It was horrible. To tell you the truth...the other court shows all stink....but this one....well it just sucks!!!  You want a judge who bases decisions from law. You also want a judge that eliminates drama to clearly see the problem at hand....well.....Judge Ross didn't do that at all. He actually created Drama.

I won't go into specifics about this case I saw but basically a punk kid got fired from work for using the company cell phone for other things than just calling. He was told not to and did anyway and it ended up costing the business 300 dollarees. The kid never paid the owner took it out of his last pay check. The kid also added on a 7000 dolaree suit for sexual harassment toward the owner.     Are you all still paying attention?? here you go

Anyway...the judge rejected all of the kids points and sided with logic most of the case. Even the harassment had no proof and sounded sooooo stupid...well at the end....he made his verdict.
"So I find in favor of the defendant for the cell phone for the sexual harassment...I think that something did happen but not 7000 dollars worth. So I am awarding the plaintiff 1000 dollars."

 I was shocked. I am still shocked. I have seen soooo many shows like this and never anything like this.  The next day I got Allison to watch one of his and she thought the same thing. He's horrible. He Based his decision on no facts and not even a compelling argument!!! NO FACTS...NO GOOD ARGUMENT!!! NOTHING!!!! Now some lady is guilty of sexual harassment in TV world forever.

Whew...calm it down David

But look at him...I mean he looks like an idiot. 

Would you trust the truth with someone like this? I would trust him as much as I would trust his deputy....ZERO!!!! Would you trust your kids with them?  Look again....NOPE!

 Plus he doesn't wear glasses like true judges...

Not only do they look smart...but they also give you the BS DOESNT WORK HERE look. 
Would you mess with Judge Judy?  I wouldn't and she is a tiny lady. 

Also I wouldn't mess with Judge Milian either. She is a latin pistol that speaks a few languages. Also if I did try anything with wouldn't be in would be on a date.

Chuck Sherman Vs David Crawford

Since 1999, I have had random people across the globe tell me that I look like Chuck Sherman. for those who aren't familiar with this fellow....Chuck Sherman is the Shermanator from the movie American Pie. I have always tossed this to the side because people think redheads look the same....I have even had some asian and black friends tell me redheads look the same. When that happens I look at them and ask them "Surely you are not going to say that all redheads look the same"

Well lately I have gotten tired of it. Now when someone asks....I look at them and ask them if they think I truly do or if its just because I have red hair and tiny eyes.  They usually stick with it.  Well now I just think those people are dumb. I have an adopted friend that people would always say looked like his parents....these are the people I am talking about. 

Anyway here are some pics of me and Shermanator...try to look at how we truly look a lot differently. Change my hair color if you like.

While I was working on the blog my wife set out to find out as much information on Shermanator as she thing that we thought was weird is that his birthday is 3 days before mine.  We also went thru hundreds of pics to find something that might could be me....this was the closest one we could find out of soooo many...and then me....I see more in this one but once again its mostly hair based. 

So in closing, I don't look like him really at all....but I do have red hair which includes having really white skin. I do have tiny eyes and my head is kinda long like the Shermanator....but I can name lots of people with that and no one would say I look like the person....its all the hair...

Shermanator even said this in the movie "I'm a sophisticated sex robot, sent back in time to change the future for one lucky lady."

I would never say this.....

ok I would but never seriously
