The Thursday Rundown Club

Let me wish you all a pleasant good evening! This is a busy time of the year for me but my hope is that you are still enjoying these dog days of summer. Here we go with the Thursday Rundown…

Spitting Image of My Dad – To commemorate my parents’ 36th anniversary yesterday, I posted a couple photos across my social media accounts of my mom and dad on their wedding day. I received several responses telling me that I look just like my dad when he was my age. I like to think my dad was (I mean is) a pretty handsome guy so I take it as a compliment. How about you? Do you see a resemblance?

Do you think I look like my dad?

Eclipse Perspective – Earlier this week, I wrote about the challenge of adequately stating the significance of the upcoming total solar eclipse. Thanks to a co-worker, I now know exactly what to say…or at least I know what link to send. This video really helped put the magnificence of the Great American Eclipse into perspective. If you have two minutes, watch this to really understand the opportunity we have to enjoy on Aug. 21.

Girls Trip – Going to the movies used to be a favorite pastime for Sidney and I. However, things change when you have a kid. On Friday night, we went to the theater together for the first time in well over 6 months. The feature presentation? Girls Trip. Although it was 100% Sidney’s choice and although I was more excited for the popcorn than the movie, I must say it wasn’t that bad. I laughed quite a bit and really enjoyed relaxing in the theater recliners with my wife.

Sidney tweeted about the long duration of time it had been since she last saw a movie in the theater.

Oreo Stuffed Cookies – Every now and then I need to feature a treat from my favorite Twitter account. These Oreo-stuffed cookies came from the @ItsFoodPorn account. I think they would be worth a try. I think a soft, homemade chocolate chip cookie would taste great baked around a crunchy Oreo. It would be a win-win for both taste and texture. Who has a glass of milk?!

I would eat these up like a maniac.

Sloan Collage for 8/17 – Today Sloan turned 5 months old! Time flies. She is now eating baby food carrots and tips the scale at 14 pounds! She had a great appointment at the doctor’s office this week and is sleeping soundly in her crib in her own room. It is hard not to smile when you see this face.

Here is the latest Sloan collage.


My readers are the best! Thanks for tolerating another Thursday Rundown and I hope you have a great weekend. Time now to go cover an eclipse event on the CCU campus! Don’t Blink.
