Slow down
The world at large is still in fear,
Of the passing times and the rolling years.
We never know what the next might bring.
It's a lovely day,
simply wasted away
By the fast moving people
and their quick moving pace.
Why do we choose to neglect,
instead of taking time to respect
the world at large?
Would it be so bad to slow it down?
Get back to our roots,
somewhere in the small town.
Take the time to get to know,
the world as it moves on.
We should all stop....
to smell a rose.
The sky is always blue,
where the neighbors smile.
It's great to belong to a place.
That not only knows your name,
but knows your face.
Everytime I go back home,
I remember the simpler times.
Sure we struggled for what we had,
but we earned every last dime.
Would it be so bad to slow it down?
Get back to our roots,
somewhere in the small town.
Take the time to get to know,
the world as it moves on.
We should all stop....
to smell a rose
So today, when on you're way home.
Take the longer road.
See if you can find

Midnight Gun
And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing,
And the road goes on forever,
And I've got one more silver dollar,
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider

                             - "Midnight Rider" by The Allman Brothers
The party was in full swing inside the ranch style home. The innocuous-looking abode was one of many of the exact same style in the neighborhood. It was like a menagerie of upper-middle class monotony. The man in the black leather trench coat and wide brimmed duster hat looked strangely out of place in this neighborhood of SUVs and over-embellished lawns. He quietly slipped his tools of the trade from their holsters on his hips, pressed the button on the grip, and checked the clips to make sure they were full. He slid them back in quietly-the only sound was the "snkt" that assured him that they'd been securely inserted.
Jimmy Torres, Bill Dryer, and Jack Hogan were the big fish in the room. The rest of the flunkies were o

What do you want?
When you write your letters,
What do you expect from us?
Why do you say you love us so,
but when we talk you can't wait to go?
What's so important that it can't wait?
Try for a second to mend the hate.
All your time spent in Jesus name,
is all just time spent in vain.
Daddy dearest, why have you gone?
But better yet, why do you still run?
I don't want anything from you.
Hell I don't even want the fucking truth.
You left your mark on all of the kids
And never once owned up to what you did.
Hiding the truth and laying the blame.
What did you think?
Life ain't a fucking game!!
Yes, I'm an anrgy man.
Yes, I blame you for so many things.
No, I don't hate you dad.
But the pity I feel is so god damn sad!
Daddy dearest, why have you gone?
But better yet, why do you still run?
I don't want anything from you.
Hell I don't even want the fucking truth.
I'm done waisting my time.
You want talk you can come to me.
I'm done ducking the lies.
Just find out if you still love me.

So, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Steampunk and Victorian era costumes. So much so that I have decided to start making my first costume. I'm giving myself a year, and hopefully I can pull it off. Especially since I'm not much of a tailor, nor do I know REALLY how to start. I have some ideas, and I'll be putting them on paper and hopefully they'll take off. For now, what I'd like is to commission folks, if not immediately REALLY soon to help me out with it. I don't have many watchers, but a lot of you may know people who can either make leather, or other costume pieces. Here it goes, will you wonderful people help me put together my first steampunk costume? I'll give you the highlights....

"Gotham by Gaslight" - Batman in a Victorian setting. The cape I'd like to make out of denim or some other tough, durable material. I think that the cape being made out of leather would be very expensive and probably a bit heavy. I think the cowl and the cape will need to be two pieces, but I thought about making the shirt and the cowl one piece. The idea is to have it either canvas or denim on the outside, a layer of cotton batting, and then softer cloth on the inside, like a cotton or broadcloth. The cape will hang off the shoulder, clasp in the front and have a high collar. I have some other details I'll be adding, but I thought I'd start there!

Thanks for any and all help.

And BADGER! (although there's no badge for the badger. We need a badger badge for those who like to be badgered by badger badgers.)

Griffon is doing really well. He's standing up on his own from time to time and he's pulling himself up to a standing position a lot more often. He's done with physical therapy for now and we're working with him here at home.
We're making plans to move to Alabama, shooting for July, but we'll see what happens.

That's about all the updates we have for now!

Thanks for checking up on us. :)
