Billy Mays Tribute

Well, not really a tribute, but pretty funny. As loud and obnoxious as he was, this guy always seemed like he was really likeable, and I was really getting into that "Pitchmen" show. Anyway, I saw this a few months back and thought this would be a good time to post it.

The Whacko Jacko Post

Ok, I'll probably get the insensitive bastard tag here, so if your a Michael Jackson fan, just stop reading. I'll start off by saying that my thoughts and prayers do go out to his family, it's the media's portrayal of him as a saint that has got me miffed. I know Michael Jackson was an amazing entertainer in his time, but how can some people see only that and not his infamous later years? I hate it that the guy died and my heart goes out to his family, but this "man" had some serious issues! I mean, the guy actually said there was nothing wrong with sharing a bed with a child. If it's your kid and they sleep with Mommy and Daddy because the storm woke them up or the boogey-man is waiting in the closet, thats fine, but when it is just random kids coming over to "share the love by sharing a bed" that is just disgusting. I'm too young to have been around in his glory days, but just from watching T.V. I think he forfeited the title of "King of Pop" a LONG time ago. It made me sick to see Farrah Fawcett become old news this afternoon, someone who didn't lead a perfect life, but a lot more respectable than Michael Jackson's. I guess thats the mainstream media for you though. I will give it to the guy though, he was an awesome performer. I remember watching Thriller on MTV when I was a kid, and at the time I was thinking "what the hell is going on??", looking WAY back, the guy was actually pretty good.

Belated Father's Day Post

I was once asked who my hero was, and I hadn't ever thought about it much, but I automatically knew the answer: my Daddy.
I have been very fortunate to have my Dad around my whole life, I know many people out there don't get to have that experience, so I am truly grateful for how I have been blessed.
Neither my Daddy nor I are big talkers, when we go anywhere together we don't say much. But in all those quiet rides or visits, interrupted only by small talk of the weather or cattle, there is always the mutual feeling of love between a father and son. My Dad is always know as the joker of the family, when he walks in a room the the mood automatically lightens. He also has the "patriarchal" wiseness about him when I go to him for advice, and as I'm slowly coming to find out, Dad's usually right, even when I don't agree with him.
I remember growing up in the little single-wide trailer house down the road from Meme and Pop's house and right next door to Mammaw Crenshaw's house, it wasn't much but it was home. My Dad busted his butt in the oilfield, but he was ALWAYS there for me when we needed him, he always provided for us, even when money was short. And as times got better and we got a better house and nicer things, only the superficial things changed, Dad was still there just like before. My Dad is the perfect example of what a successful man is. First: He started out at the bottom and worked his way up into an extremely successful career, while never neglecting his family. Second: he and my mother have instilled Christian values in, without which I honestly don't know where I would be today, Third: He and my mother raised four amazing adults (if I say so myself), that are putting those values to work in their own families. Finally: my father is an extremely humble man. He admits when he has screwed up, and I love him that much more for it. He may think he has let us down a few times, but I assure you my Dad has NEVER let me down.
I'm not trying to boast with this, I'm just trying to express my gratitude for my blessings. It may not be the best written piece of work, but its from the heart. My father is great man, I can only pray that I will be half the Dad he is to me.
What's the thing I am most proud of? Being known as Scott Ferrier's boy.

T-Minus 15 days...

Until my birthday trip to Las Vegas. My wife is the best!
