The big day has almost arrived! 
Come Wednesday evening, my wife & I will be enjoying the magnificent voice of 
Mr. Andrea Bocelli
 in Dallas at the American Airlines Center
For me it is like the experience of a lifetime.

Boy, did the Kinnin's have a wonderful Thanksgiving. My wife's two sisters & their husbands joined us along with our oldest son, Samuel up from UMHB. We had turkey, dressing, potato casserole, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, apple cake, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie & cherry dump cake. It was so delicious and of course I made myself sick. But it was so good getting there.

It's a dreary Monday here in Brownwood, Texas, today! Things here at the library are getting busy because we were closed for Fall break and students have assignments due but could not access the printer until this morning at 7:30am.
Our son, Samuel came in Saturday with four of his friends from UMHB. We had Kimberley, MacKenzie, Mark & Tyler. They had a great time just being away from their campus and we had an amazing time hosting them. They were wonderful guests in our home and always welcome back.

Paula, Samuel, Thomas & I had a wonderful time at the Mary Hardin Baylor vs. Hardin Simmons game this past Saturday, in Belton. This final score was 26 to 0. This game started late due to thunder and lightning. The main thing was the quality time spent as a family. Samuel spent Saturday night with us in our motel room. None of us will forget how we sank into the holes in the middle of our beds. A memory for sure!

To bad we lost, 20 to 19.

Just thought I would share some great photos taken by a good friend of mine, Mr. Odeh Shawrieh!

We had the opportunity to fly to North Carolina this past June. We stayed at the Sea Foam Motel in Nags Head with my two brothers, Ray & Stacey and their wives, Debbie & Kathy. We also were with my sister, Cecilia & her husband, Will. Corey, Danielle & their son Drew were there along with my nephew, Kelly & his girlfriend, Jenna. It was a great time to be sure. I love my family & would like to spend more time with them but distance is the main factor. Paula has always wanted to go to Historic Williamsburg, so this time we finally did it. It was a lot of walking but it was very informative & fun with Celie & Will.
In all it was a good time and so happy that we were able to do it and we did not have that long drive!
