The Apple and the Tree.

The apple never falls far from the tree.  The old adage always seems to ring true.  Last week I picked up a knife off of ebay that reminded me of a knife that my Dad often carried.  A Boker large congress with jigged bone handles.  I bid on the knife just on a whim and ended up winning the bid.  I dug my Dad’s knife out of the safe and compared it to the new knife.  I was right about the similarities.  I showed my son Don his Granddad’s knife and the knife I just bought on Ebay.  He loved Pop’s knife more than the new one.  Don is named after my  Dad, Don Hinds by the way.  My son started cleaning the knife.  He spent Sunday night hand sanding a blade by himself in the garage.  Tonight he tried the buffer for the first time on the old congress.  He said, “now this is fun hanging out in the garage and working on knives.”  The apple and the tree.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage


I am an Assistant County and District Attorney at the Ellis County District Attorney's Office. On November 20, 2017, Comedian Bert Kreischer inspired me to start a weight loss journey. I started this journey at 475 pounds. Through Bert's support, Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer and Fitness Legend, Diamond Dallas Page reached out to me and changed my life. DDP Yoga and Nutrition under Dallas' guidance keeps the weight falling off of me and increases the quality of my daily life, every day. I started this podcast and blog to personally track my journey but to also interview other extra usual individuals. Those that inspire, teach, help, create, invent, discover, or are simply interesting. A lawyer for 24 years, I see negativity and conflict daily. I want to be part of something positive and inspiring. This is my outlet, my journey, my mid-life crisis, my future. If you know someone inspiring to you, let me know. I will interview this person, maybe he or she will inspire us all. Thanks. Vance
