As a male military spouse for the last 15 years, I have experienced the challenges common to all military spouses. I'm still moving and leaving friends, extended family and great jobs behind. I face the "starting over" blahs with more resolve and a better attitude now than I did 15 years ago, but it still sucks to start over. The sad part is that I fought through many of these challenges and later found out that I didn't have to fight most of the time. What I didn't know made the journey a lot more difficult.

At first, I didn't know where to go to get answers about stuff I was dealing with as a military spouse. When I did find information and resources, they didn't fit me. Not having the "right questions" was a big problem for me in the beginning. The biggest question in my head then was, "How am I supposed to do this?" The worst part about it is that I went about things on my own, feeling alone and thinking that no one could possibly understand me.

As I continue to seek out ways to help others avoid the missteps I made and the subsequent negative consequences, I'm looking for others like me who are trying to do the same. I found the Macho Spouse videos one day while searching the web for resources and information to pass on to other male military spouses. I found a couple of online male military spouse communities, but what set Macho Spouse apart to me was the quality of the videos and the way the Man-to-Man videos spoke to my situation. After watching a couple of the videos, I called Chris Pape and asked how I could help.

I've been a "loner" for as long as I can remember and I'm an introvert. So, calling a total stranger out of the blue is not something I do. But I think I might have talked with Chris almost an hour and we started working on a plan to redesign the MachoSpouse website. Hey, building websites is what I do and it's one of the ways I can help get the word out about this great resource I found that speaks to male military spouses.

The Ark Encounter Williamstown Kentucky 2017

We made it this time! Last week, we had a family trip to Cane's because we mistakenly thought the Ark was at the Creation Museum.

I call it the Ark Experience, because moving around it and in ti really is an experience. It is also an encounter, because no matter what you believe or think about this thing, it really does cause you to think.

We all enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again.

Oh yeah...I took pictures of the "Spooky Jesus" (formerly known as "Touchdiwn Jesus" before lightning struck it...so I'm told) on the way back home.

Good Fish Friday - Bass Fishing in Tishomingo, Oklahoma 20121109

Today was a great day! I went down to Tishomingo with my good friend Corey and we caught ourselves some nice bass. The day was perfect for fishing, with just enough overcast to keep the sun from baking us, while we waded down the stream.

Time really flies when you're having fun, especially when you're fishing. Eight hours flew by so fast that it was hard to believe when it was time to go. I guess you really don't think about how much walking navigating the stream you have to do. It's a great feeling to let time pass just like the flowing water of the stream.
