My wife was asked to create a "Cookie Bowl" for my nephew's groom's cake.
She toiled several frustrating hours, but the final result was remarkable.
He doesn't ship cakes, but if you have an event in the D/FW area, he is well worth the money. The cakes not only look good, but they taste delicious as well.

For Big Brothers/Big Sisters. If you would like to donate, you can click the link below and sponsor my pathetic attempts to knock down pins with a 16 pound ball (or maybe a 14 pound ball).
UPDATE: I edited the sponsorship link, and hopefully it will work this time.

If you are in the vicinity of Terrell tomorrow, please come to the park for the July 4th celebration. I will be doing some narration along with the North East Texas Symphony Orchestra, and I will be leading the crowd in a sing-along during one of the numbers. The orchestra is scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. Let's hope the rain clears out and allows us to perform.
Fireworks are at about 9:15 p.m., weather permitting.
I decided that I have to make another stab at shedding my excess baggage. Long time readers will know that I lost 50 pounds a couple of years ago. Sadly, I've managed to put 28 of those back. So, I started last Monday, June 25th with a plan to slim down. I have started bringing a gallon of water with me to work each day, and I drink all of it before I go home. I have also committed to cutting way down on the snacking during the day. One of my weaknesses has been the candy jar on the desk of a co-worker. I found myself grabbing a handful of M&Ms entirely too often. Like I did in 2004-05, I am still going to eat what I want. Just less of it.
I am not going to post weekly reports (unless I change my mind), but I will try to keep y'all updated as things progress. Since last Monday, I have lost 3 pounds. It probably would have been more, but I ate a lot when my wife and I went out for our 9th Anniversary last week.

It makes the 25-30 minute drive worth it.
