And a good time was had by all...

Happy Leftover Party (that means the people who were left over and would not go home from you last party)
Yes...I know I am old, fat...and thinning of hair. I will still challenge anyone to Indian Leg Wrestling at the drop of a hat. At least I'm not drinking directly from bottles I find in trash cans. Balderdash!

Smok'em if you gott'em!

Christmas Eve! Scotty is Smoking...$1 per pound. Bring him your meat...the night before...thawed out. Turkeys must be less than 12 Pounds...and completley thawed.
It has a very nice (hard to find) mesquite smoke flavor. Among other things...he is doing three Racks of ribs for me and mine...(Happy Pork Holiday Family) If you want, you can simply place your order with Scott, and he will provide the meat too. $15 per Rack of Ribs, Sliced or Chopped Briskett $10 per pound.
Scott...did I leave anything out?

Sunday, December 18, 2005 is one of the few times that both teams lined up not Offsides...or without any false starts. 30 Penalties...15 each...that's one every 2 minutes. Looks like the Ref's won this least they didn't get drummed like the boys did today.

Thanks for the my good freinds who let us go...(you know who you are) and wait till I tell you the story about the two guys who sat next to us...and the 2 Gallons (not joking here) of beer that they drank.

Yes my friends...the crowd was angry that was like a mad an old man trying to send back soup at a deli. Questions flying from all around the theatre...But then...something came to me...something so unexpected that I nearly couldn't get it out.
Just as I began to ask the question...I froze...I could see him before me...a greater Comic Genius I have never known....Just then...a calm came over the crowd..and I rose to my feet. I cupped my hands around my mouth like an auctioneer, at a never ending Pie Auction. I yelled, " So what's up with the boots you always wear to see Regis?"...Just then I was catapulted, from my seat, Ten stories high if I was a foot, from the middle back Right Hand Side on the floor (thanks for the great seats Greg & Teri) and it was as if I stood directly before him...Him and I...I and him...having a discussion about his “uncle Regis” "You noticed that too"...he said..."That is very perceptive"...(thanks to my adorable Wife Cindy...Who pointed it out to me...Luv ya babe)..."you should get a 25% refund on your tickets tonight when you leave the theatre", The great one continued. There we were...Him and I..I and him...hangin out…talking ‘bout his "Middle" shoes...It's like we were friends...buddies...nay...BFF's. I really like that Jerry Seinfeld...he's my BFF...

Is that a Titleist? Or was it a Buster Brown?

Can you believe we have all these kits in stock...and still have some on B/O.

I havent kept you updated lately about here goes...Notice that she is starting to show...(her belly that is)
This Pregnant Body

Jen Jeppsen, sufficient rest is one of the most important components of a healthy pregnancy. Pregnancy-related insomnia may start to affect your daily routine, but there are things you can do to help. Make sure you always go to the bathroom before you go to bed so you won't be awakened in the middle of the night. Try using pillows in different places under your chest, abdomen or between your knees. Find an arrangement that is most comfortable for you. Take a warm bath or read before bed to relax you further.

There are some simple stretches and exercises that can help relieve some muscle and ligament pain and pressure that may be disrupting your sleep.

Ask Dr. Sears

This week's topic: Bleeding gums

Your Baby

Your baby weights about 5.25 ounces and is 5-1/2 inches long from crown to rump, or about the size of a pickle.

If you notice your belly making regular, jerky movements, don't panic - your baby has the hiccups! The hiccups are harmless for baby but can be annoying for you if they last for a long period of time.

Your baby's digestive system is starting to produce meconium, its first fecal matter. Some new moms are scared at the sight of it and think something must be wrong with their baby.

Click here to read more about meconium.

Now this is funny...I don't care who you are....

Now...getting back to one of our original tasks here at Hillenblog. I can't wait to see the third installment from the pairing that brought us these two cuties....I wonder how the pregnancy is progressing?

Neck Wound...I think that she must have "Nicked her Jugglar"

Moo Moo Buckaroo!

As to Missy's goes. This is where I have been spending the bulk of my time lately. I wish I had a before photo...but I don't. Through the hard work of many people the "Plant" is starting to look up...

Thursday, November 03, 2005

Yes...folks that IS what you think it is...Peebs is just sitting there...and allowing someone to pile Trash onto the tops of the "new" lockers at DMP. Disapointing!

and this was what Barrett had carved while i was gone...go Longhorns!...Nice Job Barrett! buddy scotty pulls the "trigger" on a smoker on ebay...and we all (irog, and GW) road trip it to Mt Pleasant, Texas to pick it up...800 miles and 14 hours of bustin on basically everyone who was not in the car. Also we had some dan good BBQ at Bodacious Bar-B-Q...That is Scott's Smoker in the foreground.

Ever notice how a dating couple starts to dress alike...did you know that they almost drive the same the same color too.

And...if you look closely you can see the tread marks from where I ran over OD's foot with the "get away car"...oops. Bonus points for having her toenails polished...truly an important sign for any of you guys out there that are paying attention...and old enough to notice girls (you know who you are)

...Who is that? and how does she keep her shoes so white?

Ta Da!!!! I will be honest with you bloggers...I was a bit disapointed in the comments on my last few posts...I realize i have been bloggus interuptus...but come on now...that was a pretty good prank on the owner of the White BMW...especially on the spur fo the moment.

Here are a few "other" pics that were found on said camera...strange...

This is by far the most disturbing photo that was on the camera....It doesnt even look like her eyes are open.

SO...there was a giant Hillenblog Taco Feast at the Hillenblogs house on Sat Night (thanks for coming Jim, Nancy & Amy Sue). About 2/3 of the way through the evening...FS Walker and Nick Burns said that they had to go "meet some people for coffee" downtown...later that night I noticed that my digital camera was missing. And there were some other reports of stolen stuff. This morning while leaving for camera was on the front porch with a wad of gum wrappers, reciepts...and hair clippings. These were the pictures I found on it. WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN? Does anyone recognize this vehicle?

Tuesday, October 18, 2005 I carry my camera with me at all times...and this is the type of things that I see...and just have to capture. Last Thursday Morning...Sunshine and 65 (schoolcraft for all you city kids) in traffic...7:35 in the morning...

Guess who's starting to show? Guess who's tummy is too sensitive for Hillenburg Taco's...Oh I guess there wasn't any Hawian Punch there...anyway...Its "Show time".

Name those places.

Pardon my Blogus interuptus...but the past few weeks have been very busy. Looks like the next few will be too. Among other things I was traveling last week. See if you can guess the following sights from the air.

Happy Birthday to Barrett. Your Mother & I are very proud of you...and we love you very much. Go LongHorns.

This is day number 72 and you're 11 weeks pregnant!
You have 208 days or 29 weeks left, and are 27.5% of the way there.
Baby's age since conception is 58 days or 9 weeks. You are due on 4/15/2006. Jen: You can still reach the Piano...(OK...that was uncalled for...and I apologize) You definately have that "mother-to-be" glow about you (that or my flash is set too high) Here you can see Jen taking a break from her ivory tickling activities to pose for her weekly photo on Hillenblog. That's right folks...tune in here weekly to stay up to date on the delivery of #3.

Sorry Kids...but Hillenblog has been a little busy that last couple weeks. It turns out that the peeps out there are wanting more of that DMP...than the DMP can build. So...Hillenblog (McHillen for this purpose) has been working the all volunteer Night Shift. This makes the time for bloggin hard to come by.

Sunday, September 11, 2005

Jen: We missed you photo...but we still have the weekly report to our readers.

Week 10: 30 weeks or 217 days until Wednesday, April 15, 2006.

Your baby now is somewhere between 1 and 1 1/2
inches in length and probably weighs about 4 grams (which is
about the same weight as 4 paper clips). In terms of
physical development, your baby has toes, eyes that are
usually open, and ears that are completely formed. Your baby
now has lips and the genitals that are becoming more clearly
defined. The little pollywog you have inside loses its
"tail". This is what is termed "the fetal period".
For an image of your baby at 10 weeks visit: here
(note...this is NOT YOUR ACTUAL baby...but a representation)
Till next week.

Mayor Nagin's Reflecting Pool

I feel for the people who look to others (mostly their government) for everything they have. Especially when thier local government in incapable of any Leadership. Above are 205 New Orleans School Buses that are less than 3 miles from the Superdome & Convention Center. Enough to evacuate 13,500 people. Can we make Rudy Giuliani the Mayor of every major city in the US?

The First Annual Washers Tourney was tonight...of course "Somebody" forgot to bring the Washers. (not to name names but it rymes with Tammy Tree Frog) we had to resort to playing Croquete'. Which is a fun game...but nothing like Washers. In attendance were Milsie, Robdeebob, Skywriting, (of course we were hosted by) Nick Burns, F.S. Walker, Hillenjunior, Movie Buff, IslandWriter, Royblog, Roywife, Hillenwife, SpfldSteph, Britt-any-thing goes, and the newly named Crystal Blue Sarcasm. Conspicuosly absent were (as previously mentioned) Sammy B, the DTB admin & his wife...mary ann, the professor too, all here on Nick Burns isle. (oh yeah...and Hal*rina...Robin of Walnut...Tango Delta...Jen...Rachel...iROG...K1 & K2)

This morning DMP made contact with one if our dealers in Jackson, MS...and unbelievably, they were recieving UPS shipments. UPS is Amazing...there is not question. This dealer had all 8 of his employees (who had lost their homes and everything) living with him. They had no food, no water, no gas, nothing. In a little less than 4 hours. The wonderful people at DMP had donated almost $500 to cover freight...and almost 1000 lbs of food, water, and provisions...some of which are being Air Freigted in. An amazing story...Thanks to Leigh Sides for heading up the effort...what a great place to work!

Scott Mills (Smills) is officially recognized as the "Brain Trust" that had the whale of an idea to re-align the Ozark Empire Fair traffic routing plan. He is presented with an honorary SMILLS BLVD Street sign. Way to go Scotty.

This is my patanted "noisy room Cell phone move"...that Skywriting is making fun of...see what type of constant abuse that I take. No Respect.
