Tickets are going on sale for the October 22nd Fall Gala which will benefit the senior class at Preble County High School.

The theme this year is “Autumn Leaves”. It’s a great opportunity to support some even greater kids!

My second oldest son is Zachary is a senior and I am going to miss him very much. He’s such a sweet boy, he hasn’t had trouble at school since second grade.

That year I got called into the principal’s office for a chat because his teacher said that Zachary wouldn’t stop sticking his hands down his pants. I asked him why and he said, “I don’t know, it just feels good!”

I told him it wasn’t appropriate school behavior and he’s been on the straight and narrow ever since!

Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for everyone else. The dance starts at 7:00pm. I’m hoping to see a lot of you there!

This should remind us all that the American Dream is not dead. I hope that I can buy an island of my own someday. Read more →→→
