Dave’s Fireside Chats: A Nutty Start to the Season


     Our Thanksgiving was quite active, having 25 guests to our house for turkey and all the fixins’, and then battling a family stomach virus and mice in the basement (yet again).  The Saturday after Thanksgiving, I took my young daughter on a “date” to see The Nutcracker, along with Campmaster Steve Blackston and …

Okay, a lot of my mission teammates have written posts on our recent India mission trip, so I will attempt to do the same thing.   A team of seven from our church and a team of four from our pastor’s former church left for India on November 4th for a ten day mission of dedicating some churches, encouraging …

Dave’s Dots


Presidential retreat:  Rumor has it that President Obama turned down a brief appearance in the civil rights film The Butler.  But, when asked about a supporting role in the 2014 film Tea Party Zombies from Uranus, the President said he was “so there”. Another turn down:  Embattled kitchen queen Paula Deen also recently turned down …

U is for Undulating Uvulas

Pity the poor teacher that has asked her 30 students to each write a paper on what they did on their summer vacation, and now, by golly, she has to actually read all of them.   After 15 papers on hanging out at the pool, she is ready to stick a pencil in her forehead, but along …

Dave’s Timbuktu Kardashian Obamacare Lebron James New York Tea Party Paris Trayvon Martin Sharknado Rama Lama Ding Dong Dots


My wife is very concerned that not many people are reading Dave’s Dots because it is not a very catchy title, and it is too hard to find on the internet.  Personally, I think Dave’s Dots is like a brand name, sort of like “Top Ten List” , where you know exactly what you are …

O is for Oh My Goodness! What Have We Gotten Ourselves Into?

My wife has begged me to once again guest blog on the alphabet series.  Now, you think she would have learned her lesson after I did “H is for Hiney” last time, but I guess not.  Oh well, that’s what makes marriage interesting.
