A New Year

Christmas Day, 2013
Christmas Day, 2013

Ok, so I’m only a month or so late with this post.  Considering how often I update this website, that’s pretty darn quick.  2013 was a good year, especially in October.  That month saw the arrival of my newest little buddy, Colt Sage Waltrip, and my parents celebrating their 35th year of wedded bliss… in the hospital, cooing over Colt.

So here’s to 2013, and lets hope that the rest of 2014 goes well too!

Mississippi Pot Roast

Okay, I admit, I got this recipe from a Facebook post, but I made it last weekend and it was delicious.  I’m going to make it again, so I’ll include it here on the site.  I think next time I may try replacing the pepperoncini peppers with something a little hotter, like jalapenos.

Introducing Colt Sage Waltrip

2013 10 22 - Colt 04On Wednesday of last week, Colt Sage Waltrip was born to Chris and Samantha in Corpus Christi, Texas.  Colt is a few weeks premature and is currently in the NICU.  The doctors and nurses say he’s doing great and will hopefully be able to go home in sometime this week.

I can’t wait to meet Nephew #2 when I go home at Thanksgiving!

Video – Cody and Grandpa at the Ranch

My nephew Cody is fearless.  He climbs up on nearly everything (including the roof of the house on occasion), he eats nearly anything you put in front of him, and he hasn’t met an animal that isn’t a friend.  Not to mention that when we go out to the ranch and shoot guns, he wants to shoot anything we’re shooting with too.

Got 99 problems…

… but GoDaddy ain’t one!

So, if you’re seeing this post, and the website doesn’t look quite like you remember it, then the transfer went through and welcome to the newly rehosted LeeTexans.com.

If you don’t remember, way back in last year, both houses of Congress made a push to pass internet censorship bills (SOPA & PIPA).  When this happened, GoDaddy came out early to support these bills.  They later retracted their public support when the public overwhelmingly rejected the idea.  GoDaddy has stayed quiet about it, but the word is they still support the federal government going to such extremes.

When this all happened, I decided not to renew my web hosting service with them (renewal was still over a year away) and look for a new hosting platform for my website.  Today, I signed up with BlueHost and I’m now in the process of migrating and updating the website.

I know I don’t keep track of the website all that often and it’s gotten pretty stale, so hopefully with this migration effort, I’ll finally get around to making some fairly decent updates.

And yes Mom, I’ll put the family tree info back up.
