Luthor: A New Hope



Loki's passing was hard on the children.  But after a few days, they had started to fair better, as time began to mend their broken hearts.

The kids both had asked that we try again - getting a puppy.  And both Dana and Alex requested that it be a German Shepard, Dana even saying that it was all she wanted for Christmas.

So Kim and I began looking for a good match for the children, as it had to be a boy dog, as argued by the kids.  We did not want to pay some breeder a high fee for a pure Shepard, but could not find anything within many miles..

At the Rogers' - Christmas 2013






I need to get the pics from Kim of our first Christmas at the new house; but I took some with my phone at Jeff & Nicole's house while Ben and Cyndi were there, as well as my parents and Bob and Peggy.















Pretty sure I work with morons

RIP Loki




The kids' beloved puppy, Loki, passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago, after only having him a short while.

We are all sad, and miss Loki, as we had come to already love him as part of our family.  He was great with the kids, was protective of them, and of our house.  A friend gave us a Christmas ornament with a German Shepard in a dog-house on it, and Alex wanted us to hang it up by the star.  He calls the ornament Loki, and began sniffling and quietly sobbing while holding it one evening, then asked to go to bed...

It was the saddest thing I've seen in a long while.

Vegas



The new county IT job I took as of October required me to obtain a little bit of training, namely for the public safety information system software.  I had the unfortunate luck of being forced to go to Vegas, all expenses paid.

I am not going to regale the whole trip here, but..
Here are some pics I took!





I stayed in NYNY



Yea, I lost some money


Most of my time was in fact just spent in the hotel, which I am sure is what they want





awesome
