Today, I am grateful that my eldest son will be with me at the gathering and that last night I met his girlfriend of 1 year. I am grateful of my wife's spirit and my youngest sons dedication to excelling and serving in the Navy.   Craig

Today, I am grateful to have signed my resignation with my old school district and to have signed a contract in a new district that will bring me back to the high school level after two years in junior high. I have five years of work with the old district of which I am proud, but it's time for a change. I am grateful for the opportunity to make the 08-09 academic year the best ever! I hope I can be a more positive, happier Guide Dog!

I am extremely greatfull for the wonderful treasure given to me by C-Howling Dog (thats does have a nice ring to it Sir)

The magazine is a rare find and in such great condition!  I am humbled by your generosity.

I am greatfull for being honored by Guro Crafty naming me "Candidate-Kaju Dog".

I am greatfull for the surgery performed on my L-Knee,  more greatfull for the PAIN Meds...

Dr. said, "My knee is the worst he had ever seen".  Full blown ACL,PCL, Bilateral meniscus destroyed, Tibia worn down and needed drilling to promote healing and growth. 

Greatfull for the USN providing me the time needed and freedom to rehabilitate my knee, The Right Way.

Greatfull for Lonley Dog's Kali Fitness DVD - I will be studying and utilizing the Kali Fitness DVD to its fullest during and after my recovery...  Great DVD, If you don't have it, GET IT.   A must for any serious stick fighter.

Greatfull for Pretty Kitty's kindness and good heart.  My Wife is sporting the ladies DB's tank top with much pride and glow about her.  I plan to have her accompany me to the next Gathering in California.  Her SUV also sports the DB's TM stickers. 

Greatfull for Pappy Dogs support of the Gathering with GREAT deals on fighter apperal/weapons/etc.

Greatfull for Linda's help and friendship. 

Greatfull for all the Dog Brothers and Future Dog Brothers, Tribe members.  Junkyard Dog / Jeremy, Im greatfull for your accepting to fight a cripple.  LOL

Im thankfull for having such a wonderful Wife and great kids.  They are really stepping up to help their Dad in his time of limited mobility.

PS
*Side bar:

I was wondering if Sled Dog has a brother named Denis?

In the gift from C-Howling Dog, there is a nice article about Denis Gelinas from Montreal.  I am wondering if they are related.  Yip!

What a treasure I am finding in the kindness of my fellow Dog Brother.   smiley

I am thankful today and everyday for my team mates. Who serve proudly as warriors and for those how have made the ultimate sacrifice that we may have the opportunity to persue the things that we love and hold dear.

And as always for my wife and two children who put up the the craziness of my (one minute I'm here the next I'm gone) life with little or no complaints.

I am also thankful for those such as Marc, Gabe, Michael Janich and Kelly McCann among others for doing what they do when they take time out away from their families to train us to be warriors and not worriers.

Today I am grateful to have accompanied my son to a birthday party and to have watched as I saw him swim in the ocean for the first time with his friends.

I first watched for a while to get a sense of how good his judgment was (pleasantly relieved to see it to be pretty good, , , today at least) and then I joined him.

8/24/2008

I recently reconnected with an old high school friend.  We found each other in February and I was able to get together with her for the first time in April.  Her husband, who I met about seven year ago, is dying of cancer.  He has passed the date that the doctors believed that he would die on about three years ago.  He recently made the decision that chemotherapy is not for him and that he wants to try to enjoy the time he has left.  His wife has begun to make plans for his passing.  Today, my wife and son had the chance to met my friend for the first time, and her husband.  I am grateful for a fun day, in a very positive household, that was inspiring to both my wife and myself.  My friend is really an amazing woman, and my wife commented that she was one of the most positive people she had ever met.  I am also grateful to have reconnected with such a good friend, and authentic person.  This was not meant to be a post to bum anyone out.  I am truly grateful for what was a VERY positive day.

I recently moved back to teaching high school from the two years at the junior high level. I am grateful for my new position in what seems very nice school.

Today, one of my freshman students came up to my desk after I had given a very easy assignment in which the students needed to interview one another and present their findings to the class in order to get to know one another better.  This student looked a little rattled.  When I asked what was the matter, he began to tell me about his speech impediment.  He very diligently worked through the words as he stuttered.  He asked if he might be excused from the assignment and have an alternative.  I told him that I didn't have any problem if he turned in the information in written form that he would have read aloud.  He looked incredibly relieved and he thanked me.  After he returned to his desk (pardon me for sounding wimpy), I had to force myself from getting a little misty eyed.  I admired the boy's authenticity, and his assertiveness in the face of what is a pretty severe stutter.  I was also moved by how easy it was to help wipe the rattled look of of his face by being a little nice.  Maybe it's just a teacher thing, but I am grateful for the interaction.  It made me feel good to try and help him.

For a long time my son has wanted to see NYC and yesterday was the first of two days.  We did Statue of Liberty and a walk through some of my old stomping grounds in Central Park, and a night time walk in the neighborhood.  He and his sister are just beaming as am I to share with him places where I was a boy at the age that he is now.

After the seminar today we did a bit together and he showed me his current understandings and movement.  Deeply satisfying to see how he has grasped and evolved with the things we have worked together over the years, his understading of DBMA.  His teaching here in Hawaii is deep and strong.

I'm grateful that I'll be getting my Mustang GT back from the police next week.  Here is the back story:

So here’s the deal. About two months ago I took my 1990 Mustang GT to the shop to get it’s annual inspection. I’ve had the car since I was sixteen. In fact, it was my first car. I am now twenty-six and still baby the car daily. I’ve only managed to put 59K on it in the past ten years only driving it when I think the weather is worthy of hitting the pavement with her. Needless to say, I love the car with a passion.

I was expecting the job to take a day or so and for my mechanic to call me back letting me know it was done. Sure enough he called back, but it wasn’t a call to inform me it had passed inspection. Rather it was to give me some horrible news.

The first words out of my mechanic’s mouth were “when did you come and get your car?”

I laughed and asked, "What do you mean? Are you screwing with me?”

He replied with, “Ah no, it’s not here Ryan.”

It was with this news that I found out that my 1990 Mustang GT 25th Anniversary was stolen. Someone had come into my mechanic’s lot, loaded it onto a flat bed and taken her away. I contacted the insurance company, filled out the paperwork, scanned in my years of receipts showing that this car was in impeccable condition and was on my way to getting an insurance check. Something bothered me however, I felt as if it was out there, and would possibly be found. I put off the final steps of finalizing the insurance claim until a few days ago. The last step was to sign over the title to the insurance company, send it to them and they would send me my check. I had the title in the envelope, signed and stamped, ready to go out with the mail the next day. It seemed like one of the longest walks I had ever taken walking to my mail box, putting the title in and raising the outgoing mail flag on the box. It had taken two months but I had finally gotten over the fact that I was never going to see my Mustang again. Instead, I was handing over the title for under half of what I actually put into the far, you gotta love the “blue book” value. In any event, I went to work that night, did my business and came back late, around 1AM. I was winding down getting ready to go to bed when I saw my cell phone light up. Who could possibly be calling me at this time? Without hesitation I realized it must be important so I picked it up. Seeing an out of state number that was not coming up on caller ID alarmed me but I answered it anyways.

“Hello?” I answered

“Mr. Gruhn?” the man said.

“Yes Sir.”

This is Trooper Dillian with the State Police.

O god I thought to myself, what did I get myself into now?!

“Mr. Gruhn, . . . . we found your car.”

My heart pretty much jumped out of my chest! I sprung to my feet and started drilling him for answers. It turns out that this was a multi-state deal with numerous mustangs that were getting chopped up and sold. I half didn’t want to know but I asked, “is my car okay?” He said that it was intact and actually had a good bit of work done to it; headers, paint, etc. However, it wasn’t in the best shape. He informed me that it will be almost a month until I can even see it again because it has to be booked into evidence, finger printed, etc. On top of that, if I really wanted it I would have to drive down to West Virginia to get it. It took no time at all for me to realize that I will actually be reunited with my first real love. A 1990 Mustang GT that I once laid eyes on and said that I would never let it go. It might sound corny but I had planned on getting this car since it came out in 1990 and I was eight years of age. It was a plan to never let go of her.


I can't wait to get it back!
