trough -
Function: noun
\ˈtrof, ˈtroth, by bakers often ˈtrō\

This morning as we watched the first day of the Olympics an argument broke out between Dee and myself. It all had to do with how one simple word was pronounced. She is of the trof camp and I am of the troth camp.

It is days such as this that I wonder how I could have married a woman who pronounces trough with an F. Neither of us were wrong, seeing as it is pronounced both ways.

But in the end, in her eyes, I am wrong.

Quote of the Day
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny

A little Guitar post

A Guitar Teacher's Lesson Notebook - A Blog I have been reading as of late and am now putting under my guitar links on the sidebar. Really nice simple down to earth lessons for those of us who are really new to playing with lots of songs broken down into chords and strums also. The guy has a great sense of humor as well.

New Run

Well I am now focusing on the Hospice 5k, Sept 14Th. Ran last night for the fist time in like a month. I do believe I am going to have to really get running to beat my last 5K time. Dee is pounding the pavement nightly. Finishing behind her would also have dire consequences.

The back room nears completion after months of procrastination. Just have to finish up the base moulding and paint it.

Nice guys finish last, but we get to sleep in.
