Cathy: "Doug, practice your breathing please."
Best wife e’vr! Without Cathy, I’d be on the floor all blue in the face.add a comment

Death to electronics! October 16, 2012 9:10 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life
I held onto my Razr flip phone way too long. Eventually the battery soldered to the circuit board died and I was unable to replace it. Thus began my life with a smartphone and do I ever love it! So much of my life revolves around the applications in my iPhone 3GS that I feel uncomfortable without them. I joke that without my iPhone, my IQ drops 10 points. Last night, my iPhone died. The Apple Store says the hard drive failed or something internal died. I asked, "is it the battery?" They replied flatly, "No." I suspect it is the battery and ordered a replacement. We shall see in two days.
In other electronic deaths, my laptop’s battery has given up the ghost. Maybe I just need to return to the woods.add a comment

And we camped! October 14, 2012 3:43 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Evan, Family, Of Being Dad
Evan and I just returned from our first camping trip to the Cosby Campground in the GSMNP. Greenbrier used to be my hideaway in the Smokies and is still one of my favorite spots. Cosby is on the Greenbrier side of the mountains and was a wonderful experience! Our scouts, their parents, their support, our pack, its support, the attitudes, the adventures and the weather were all great…better…they were perfect! This is one of those father/son bonding experiences that had so many precious moments that this trip will always hold a special place in my heart.add a comment

Student: Why are better choices easily seen after you’ve made the wrong ones?
Master: Why make the wrong choice in the first place?

The trouble is that by the time you are done with your 2nd and 3rd job, you are too tired to do all those things you want to do with the family.add a comment

Me: "Who picked their nose and put boogers on the wall?"
Blushing child: "I sneezed."
