• Lolla 2015: Cheese Burgers, Tunes, and Friends

    A love of music? A love of cheese burgers? A love of hanging out with friends? All of the above. Lollapalooza has become a pilgrimage for me for the last couple of years. I’ve been going on a somewhat regular basis since 2007 (yes, the year of Daft Punk). For the last two years though…

  • Grayson Snapchat Questions

    Okay, so a little more than 3 questions.

  • St Johns Water Fun

    We were in the water a lot while down at St. Johns.

  • St. John – The Sites

    The Shoo family just got back from the US Virgin Islands. We spent a week with my in-laws, and my brother-in-law and his girlfriend. And of course Grayson was along for the trip. Lots of photos and video. Be warned: you’ll wish you would have been there too. I am going to try to break…

  • Wood for seven years?

    In November, Mrs. Shoo and I celebrated seven years together. Yes really. Seven. I don’t know what the traditional gift is for seven years, but I gave her a hand crafted wood bowl. A friend / coworker had been showing his recent wood working skills. Always liking something that you can’t buy off a shelf,…

  • We asked G some questions

    Always funny what you will hear from a three year old.

  • Mr. Geebus turned 3

    Geebus is one of Grayson’s many nicknames. For a while when we would ask him his full name, he would respond “Grayson Geebus Scheufele.” This weekend our little Geebus turned 3. We can’t imagine life without him. He’s so full of personality, love, and overall just a great kid. That’s not to say he can’t…

  • Monticello Railroad Days – 2014

    I am sucker for trains. My Grandpa Etter raised me on HO gauge set that took up more than a living room. I get a little excited when I see the BSNF coal train on Rt 104 headed to the power plant. I know what a 2-6-0 wheel arrangement looks like. Needless to say, I was…

  • Weekend updates

    Helped my brother move. He recently acquired a new “old” vehicle. A beautiful 1989 Lincoln Continental. It’s in premo condition if you overlook the late 80’s wood trim and old lady smoke residue. It’s his new baby and mode of transportation as his job will only be 4 miles from his house. I…
