The eyes have it!

As far as I’m concerned, there’s nothing hotter than looking into the eyes of a dude who’s got your dick in his mouth. 🙂

The heat has been brutal down here lately – with daily highs of 99 to 104 degrees. It’s been too hot to even be out on the lake during the day, although Chad and Raef have been taking the kids out fishing some mornings at six o’clock. So… with the kids out of school and this ridiculous heat, it’s been “Hawks nest” to the rescue. Every day, we’re thankful to Chad for coming up with the idea of buying the building – and to Alex for his brilliant execution. The kids (and dogs) absolutely love “the nest” and have been spending every afternoon over there. We have a “2 adult minimum” rule for when the kids are at the “nest” and it hasn’t been a problem getting volunteers. We do inside stuff for a while – then run out to the water feature – then back inside. The pickle ball court is a big hit and there’s always 2 or 3 on the climbing wall. Daisy wants to spend all her time out with the fountains. She goes out and barks until the water starts then tries to catch the spray in her mouth. She’s a “hoot”!
Since we’ve been at “the nest” most afternoons, we’ve all been watching Jeopardy on the giant screen TV. It’s been cool having Ken Jennings back hosting. According to “” Mayim and Ken will continue the hosting split next season which I guess is o.k. although we would have preferred having Ken as the sole full-time host.
Guys, stay inside and stay cool until this heat breaks. 100 degree temps are dangerous! xoxo David and Ben

The “eyes” have it!

We don’t know why… but for some reason, this post makes us think of our buddy “Jingle” 🙂

As you know, the AFC championship game between the Chiefs and Patriots is at Arrowhead stadium on Sunday. Yesterday morning, I had a phone call from a business associate offering me 3 tickets in a luxury suite for Sunday’s game. A very generous offer! Since the forecast is for an outside temp of ONE DEGREE at kickoff, that’d be the only way I’d consider going to the game. I texted Ben at work to tell him about the offer and ask him what he thought. He said he’d talk with Dub at the next class break and text me back. He did… and I called my friend, thanked him profusely and declined the tickets. Here’s how Ben tells me his conversation with Dub went:
Ben: “David just texted me. He can get 3 tickets for the Chiefs’ game
Sunday. They’re in a luxury suite so we’d be inside and warm.”
Dub: “What about our friends? Can we take them?”
Ben: “There are just 3 tickets. It’d just be you and me and David.”
Dub: “Do we have to go?”
Ben: “No. But it’s a chance to be at the stadium to see the game in
Dub: “It wouldn’t be much fun if our friends weren’t there. Watchin’ it
with them is what’s fun.”
Ben: “If you’d rather, I can text David and tell him we’d rather invite
our friends over and watch the game at home with them.”
Dub: (grinning) “Yeah. That’d be good.”
So that’s the deal. We’ve invited everyone to our house to watch the game on t.v. Actually, I agree with Dub. It’s not watching the game that’s important – it’s watching it with friends! GO CHIEFS!

Dude. It’s “Friends Friday,” and “the eyes have it”!

Hey, guys. It’s Rick. It’s been a while, so it’s probably our turn to do a post. It’s always a fun thing to do!
There was a comment this week from “bw” saying (in part):
“just look at those eyes – I’m a sucker for dark hair and pretty blue eyes.”
That got me thinking about how sexy “eyes” are… and how there hasn’t been a post about them for a while. I think there’s general agreement that of the guys in our Northland gang, Keon has the most amazing eyes. He can look at you and say a whole sentence – or even a paragraph – just with his eyes. What’s interesting is it appears that Travon’s eyes are gonna be just like Keon’s. We’ve had several people comment, saying things like the checkout lady at Lowe’s last week, who looked at Travon and said: “My goodness, you sure do have your daddy’s pretty eyes.” Travon grinned from ear-to-ear 🙂

While I was putting this together, I ran across the tattooed dude in pic #1 with the biblical quote from Ezekiel on his chest. I think he has absolutely hypnotic eyes and the quote is obviously a referenced to “Pulp Fiction,” which is one of my fav movies. Here’s the relevant dialogue from the movie:
“Jules: I’m not giving you that money. I’m buying something from you. Wanna know what I’m buyin’ Ringo?
Pumpkin: What?
Jules: Your life. I’m givin’ you that money so I don’t have to kill your ass. You read the Bible?
Pumpkin: Not regularly.
Jules: There’s a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. ‘The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.’
Now… I been sayin’ that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. You’d be dead right now. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. See, now I’m thinking: maybe it means you’re the evil man. And I’m the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here… he’s the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. And I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is you’re the weak. And I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin’, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd.’ ”
So… Sorry if I lost some of you here with all this movie stuff, but I think it’s real interesting. I guess if you’re not a “Pulp Fiction” fan, you can just relax and enjoy the pretty eyes! xoxo Rick (and Keon)
