This site is dedicated to my fondness for fowl. Not in any way that requires years of therapy. It's not even my favorite meat. I just think it's neat. What can I say? I am easily amused.
Plus, it may have something to do with the fact that my first and middle names said together are a homonym of poultry (Paul Troy).

The Tortoise Prevails

In the tale of the Tortoise and the Hare, the Tortoise wins the race. Well, call me the Tortoise of blogging. I realize that it has been a while since my last post and some of my readers - holy crap, I have readers - dropped me a line encouraging me to post again. Apparently more than one person likes to hear me go on and on about whatever strikes my fancy. So as does the Tortoise in his race against the hare, I intend to prevail in this new hobby of blogging.

A lot is going on right now. Our pool is nearly complete. I am shopping for a bike at the behest of my two older brothers. Work is crazy with a capital Q. Wesley amazes us almost daily as he grows from a toddler into a boy. Mayra remains beautiful. Life is good. Life is full.

Oh, I just sold a house. It was an easier than normal sale because it was a house for sale in our neighborhood that our friends Kim and Erick had found and wanted to see. So, they saw it and then they put an offer on it. After some non-adversarial interchanges between me and the listing agent, we had a deal! I sat on two Open Houses over the last two weekends for another agent in the office. I can't say that any business has come from it, but it was educational to say the least.

I am gearing up to help to my friend Matt with judging at the Odyssey Of The Mind competitions coming up, first regional, then state. It's my second year doing it and I really enjoy it. Check out for more info if you'd like.

My dad and step-mom are still working crazy mad to get out his fictional book. They recruited Gizzy, Mayra's cousin, to do the art work for the jacket. It's not my cup of tea but I suppose that's a good thing since it is written for women. :-) In any event, I wish him the best with it.

That's about it for now. Maybe I won't wait so long before posting again. Take care!
