I almost wrecked my jeep from laughing after hearing this Real Men of Genius (#55) salute...aside from my Dallas friends who, as I, are among the ranks of guys who use product in their hair, I immediately thought of the blog world's own Scott and Tony!
So, I salute you...guys who are man enough to use product in their hair!

I either entered a time warp tonight or actually met some of the real life cast from this show...
At my daughter's volleyball game tonight I counted more mullets than a cat has lives....I mean come on...was 38 Special playing in town somewhere or what?
It's weird enough that my son likes Journey and Rush, that skinny leather ties are making a comeback and that we may witness the return of the Miami Vice blazer with pushed up sleeves(recently saw both in stores at this upscale Big D mall)....but Mullets!!!! YIKES!
A sweet ride, sunshine, classic Rock, lunch with a friend and intentions to get back to the office in order to TCB. But apparently God had other plans.
Clipping along at 65 the Stang cuts out, I cross three lanes of traffic and pull it over just under a bridge...looks like I won't be getting back to work anytime soon. Phone calls to insurance co's, my wife and I discover that I'm covered in case of a wreck just not a breakdown. The Courtesy Officer on the tollway pulls it over. He asks several questions and then this one...."So what do you do?" I explain that I'm a pastor and he pulls out a bible from his bag. We chat for the better part of 45 minutes about grace and some spiritual questions he has. One tow truck arrives-old school-no flatbed....I wave it off....not going to risk the Stang getting dragged by that...he informs that it will be at least another 45 minutes before a flatbed can make it.....
We finish up chatting, he's got other calls to make and since I'm safe under a bridge with a truck on the way he's moving on. I'm not mechanic but I think hey....I need to save some cash...I'll pull the breather, flip the carb, push the gas intake and see what happens...so I do put it all back and then give it a start. It sounded like the beginning of the Daytona 500...I do my best McConaughey; "All Right, All Right, All Right!" and I'm back on my way.
Since then, no problems with the car but lots of reflections. I must admit I want to be very cautious in saying God did this or that....but...this guy had some serious questions about grace..we would have never met if I hadn't broken down..I couldn't reach my mechanic by cell, the insurance Co's wouldn't cover a tow, the truck that showed up was the wrong kind...coincidence or God-Event.
