Smokey Mountain

Adding one more thing to the I Quit list, this time it is tobacco. Been smoking or using some sort of tobacco product since I was about 13 years old. So for 23 years I've been hooked. I was doing some research a few weeks ago and found this product while looking for how to quit. So I placed my order and in a few days they came in the mail. Since the first pouch hit my mouth I haven't had any tobacco products since. Is it a cure all? Probably not, but I figure that I really do want to quit this time and that's all you really need. I have tried to quit in the past, but always missed smoking or whatever and would just give in because I wanted to smoke. Anyway this is a nice flavor none tobacco none nicotine pouch, that I am using to help me quit. Whats in it? peppermint, menthol, chocolate, corncoffee, xylitol, and cayenneppepper. There is probably more but that's what they tell you on the can. It's FDA Approved and and is considered a safe product. If my efforts fail or come close, I will rush to the store to get the patches or gum or some other product. But for now, It's going good. I have been walking for several weeks and even ran a little to boost the heart rate and feel good. I look forward to a healthier happier ME !

So far this year I have quit the following:

Mountain Dew (Drank for 25+ years)

Tobacco Nicotine (used for 23 years)

Java Chillers (Enjoyed for several months)

Alcohol (Drank for 20 years) Sometimes Socially sometimes on the floor puking.


A couple weeks ago Misty and myself took in the local symphony and had a great time. The music was simply awesome but we both agreed that the second song of the first set was missing something. Anyway, if u like live music, be sure to check out your local philharmonic, cheap upper balcony seats were only $12.

7000 Miles

Well, finally made it. I could have drove around the block friday on the way home and tripped it, but figured I would ride over the weekend, but it just didnt work out. Anyway, hit 7000 miles this morning on the way to work, just wasn't a good place to pull over to take the pic.

Snake again

another pic of the snake

Red Belly Water Snake

Saw this about .2 miles into the 1st Trail. We couldn't resist aggravating the snake for a few mins so we could get this pic. We walked bout none stop for two hours.

Congaree Park

Out with Misty and Capone for an afternoon in the park. Been cooped in the house all day.

The Whole Store

Since Capone tends to break the squeakers in the toys, we bought out the store so we'd have backups :-D


This one is known as Goldie, the favorite of the three tiny jungle toys.


This one is a nice change, it's an elephant.


One of many of Capone's toyz. This one is Hippo named Blue.
