Long Time, No See

I know it’s been a while.  A long while since I have posted on Meet The McKinneys.  There really has been a lot going on and I probably have several good excuses, but I won’t use any of them.  I’m sorry.

Now that it is out of the way I feel better.  Don’t you?


Bringing you up to speed with what has happened in the last 6 months would be very difficult to press into one blog post and the better part of 4 hours.  So, I’ll give you the brief of it… bullet points.  I love bullet points.

  • Mom moved up here to Augusta
  • The Banking Industry went into the toilet
  • We started a business called “Charging Rhino” to see if we could do it
  • We went on vacation to St. Thomas
  • We saw Carlos Mencia at the Fox Theater in Atlanta for Amber and April’s Birthday
  • We hosted mom’s Birthday dinner at her favorite restaurant… Olive Garden
  • The entire Family was in town for Gabby’s Birthday
  • I saw friends that I haven’t seen in five years
  • I’ve taken up mountain biking
  • I became semi-fluent in Spanish (I can order more than beer and find more places than el bano
  • I learned enough French to understand why America hates French people and vice versa
  • We hosted Gabby’s Grampa Michael for a couple of weeks
  • We visited Savannah and blended in well with the tourists
  • I learned that you don’t have to always be doing something
  • I became exposed to what it means to have a 4 Hour Work Week and found a new favorite author
  • We’ve gone pumpkin hunting
  • Gabby has been to 6 or 7 Gymnastics classes and has participate in at least one
  • I broke down and got a Crackberry… and I love it!
  • Mom found a job and seems to really like some of the people
  • Gabriel has headed for he beach (and probably won’t ever come home…we miss you Gabe!)
  • I learned what “wordpress” is and how to use it
  • I have consulted on several websites
  • I have run a podcast and successfully drove traffic on the web
  • Found my self educating and inspiring others to be better people
  • and many other things that I may come back and update.

Thanks for your patience.  I have the bug again.  I’m back.
