Wednesday, January 4th,2006. Brian once again
announces his future plans to attemps to break the World Record for the fastest time to blow up one hot water bottle. Records
this year will be dedicated to his mom and dad, who were always a huge supporter!
This page will partly be in Honor
of my dad, who passed away to be with my mom in Heaven on December of 2004. I will also include bits of my mom, who met him
at those gates to welcome him home. As my Pastor once said, as proud of her home as she was here in Oklahoma, Mom greeted
dad and said to him, " You think my earthly home looked good, wait till you see my Mansion"!
I miss you guys!
BRIAN BROKE THE WORLD RECORD ON APRIL 13TH AT TAHLEQUAH HIGH SCHOOL!
HE WOULD LIKE TO THANK TAHLEQUAH PUBLIC
SCHOOLS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY THEY GAVE HIM THAT DAY.
OLD RECORD, 52.68 SECONDS, NEW RECORD 51.98 SECONDS!
returning home from Italy with a New Guinness World Record, I had a dream.
It was only a short dream, but a very emotional
dream none the less. I walked up to my dad, who passed away before seeing me break any of these records. I walked up to my
dad and handed him the Medal I was given in Italy for the new record, he rubbed his thumb over it a few times in a circular
motion, smiled at me then hugged me. He said "I'm proud of you" and I woke up. I know you were trying to tell me you and mom
know, and that means a lot to me, I love and miss you guys!
With the passing of my Dad,
I look back and ask, what have I learned from life, and
I have found that true happiness comes from within one self.
Material things can break, be stolen, or given
But smiles never go away.
Friends can be easily found
E-mails are great to make you dream
We are the product of our parents, but what we become in life,
depends on us as individuals.
one can makes us work hard, dream dreams or push us to reach our goals.
I have also learned what it is like to have no
regrets when it comes to someone's passing.
Do what you can, when you can, as often as you can, and let that be the peace
in your hearts after they are gone.
Becouse, the Material things you shared, can be broken, stolen, or given away,
But the smiles you shared are yours to keep,
You finally grew up enough to find a friend in them,
and if you were
lucky enough like me, to have E-mails between you two, they can still make you daydream,
And the memories, those will
I want to personally thank my family,
Candice, Drue, and Wynter for supporting me all these years!
Now, Jackie, thanks
for your support and
Lisa, you have made me so happy and the support you give
me is awesome!
You and your family are a true blessing from God!
Thursday, April 13th, 2006 Tahlequah High School.
The morning started will a little nerves on end. This would be the first attempt at the World Record for the year. I look
back over the years at the times I came so close to breaking that record. July 3rd, 2004, missed breaking the record by 1
Now after almost retiring at the end of last year, I found myself once again stepping out to attempt to break
the World Record for the fastest Hot Water Bottle Burst. With 1100 in the gym of the Tigers, nerves running as fast as my
heart was beating, timers and announcers along with the Principal we went for it.I looked up and prayed "Lord give me the
strength to do this and let me go home safe to my family".
Mike Pope hollered out the time in ten second intervals, I blew
as hard as I could into that bottle. As I heard 30 seconds from Mike, some air leaked out the left side. I was so mad at myself
I almost threw it down. I gripped tighter and blew harder into that Blue Hot Water Bottle. As I heard "50 seconds" my mind
wasn't able to finish "I'm not going to". I saw a glimpse of the bursting Hot Water Bottle, then the ceiling, then....nothing.
I found myself on the floor completely knocked out from the explosion. After a few seconds, I came to, and hear the roar of
the crowd, friends and family as they were shouting 51.98 seconds. The old record was 52.68 seconds, now it will be 51.98
seconds! Thanks to all who BELIEVED!
