Life is like a roller-coaster ride: It can be thrilling or it can be frightening. The difference is in you.

Why I finally decided to start a blog.

Well, resist as I may, I've finally gone and done it. I'm a blogger. I blog. The boat did most of the work...

I have numerous reasons I took so long, but Instead I'll enumerate the reasons I finally took the plunge.

1. My Father-in-law insisted. Over the years I've learned that Lloyd rarely insists on anything unless he's inspired to do so. It reminded me of the story about when Brigham Young was at a Christmas party in Salt Lake. He told a brother there that he needed to go home right then and shave his beard. Perplexed, but obedient, he left and returned beardless, but with his mustache in tact. The Prophet said, "The mustache too." He went home a second time and returned clean shaven. I, like that pioneer brother, may never know why such counsel came to me on a seemingly trivial matter. But, hey, better safe than sorry.

2. I really love reading everyone else's blogs! It's almost addicting. So, like a good druggy, I guess I better share my stash with the rest of you.

3. I always want to comment on other people's blogs but couldn't unless I was registered. And I hate getting new account names and passwords (one of the reasons it's taken me so long).

So, there's my inaugural address. I look forward to keeping you all better aprised of our happy life!

  3. Wow, Troy-it's wonderful to see your blog. To keep in touch the family has transitioned from emails to blogs over the last year or two. I took forward to a renewal of your hopeful and energetic take on many interesting topics and especially to your thoughtful comments. --Lloyd PS. I removed my first post because of spelling errors.

  5. Welcome! Now you just need to send out an e-mail letting others know what the address of where your drug dealings.
