But when I asked Sifu what he meant by “light” he told be if I can’t carry it I cannot take it. Well, here I stand with it all on my back and shoulders.” This as a statement was true.  He could indeed carry it.  The pile was mass

     “Hey guys, thanks for having practice at night this week.  I could not have made it otherwise.”  Jack was always gracious.  Since the group of them started practicing together it was much easier for him to make it through testing at the Kung Fu academy.     “No problem! It’s always a good time and thanks for hosting.  After all that coffee I think I am going to be up all night!”  Caleb looked forward to the work out and knew he was benefiting too.  His love of coffee was bitter sweet.  Anytime he had it past the noon hour he could not sleep.  But Jack made a mean pot of coffee and it was hard to re

Well, howdy again!
Hello everyone, It's been a while since i've posted anything that is not a story here.  So here is a bit of an update as to what i have been up to.  Working, family(a wife, two aweesome kids, a cat and a dog.), writing and lots of Kung Fu.  Some of you might be saying "Hey! what about your furry Pals!!?".  No i have not forgotten you.  but i have has so much going on that my ability to keep everything together is hinging on my writing.  So writing for work has to come first.
