Avoiding Future Guilt
Ahh, back home in springtime. Omaha was cold & wet, interspersed with hail & ice....downright unnatural I tell ya'. Stepped off the plane in Ft. Walton Beach to a tropical 78 degrees and a tropical 85% humidity.....I know, I know, 3 months fro... Read more
Well cold as Omaha is, I do understand the attraction....it's the steaks!
It was a long, long day, non-stop action that started with me rolling out of bed at 5:00 AM to a bolt of lightening and a thunderclap right outside the hotel. WHAM-BO... Read more
Wicked Cold in Omaha!
Brrrr! Omaha is one cold town in April! I don't think I've ever been here when it's warm. We landed today and it was barely 40 degrees. Why the hell does Warren Buffet live here (must be the steaks!)
Anyway, it was a somewhat uneventful day... Read more
Growing Old is Not for Sissies!

Whew, what a night, what a day!
Many moons ago, SWMBO and I were at a fundraising auction, and we put up for auction a seaside dinner for 6 at our place. It sold for $500! Well tonight was the night the winners came to collect.

Compact, with Less Jiggle
Man 'o man I am wicked sore today!
After Wednesday's leg workout, I reached some uber-deep stage 5 sleep that made me feel like Rip van Winkle. My quads were singing and burning all day Thursday and Friday.
Today, I re-started the weig... Read more
Life is Good!
Life continues as a biped, and it certainly hasn't slowed down any.
Today was an interesting day at work. Of course all the surprised looks by folks of me with no cane. "Don't think I never heard you snickering before as I went by," I told ... Read more
WOW what a day!
I don't normally blog twice, but today's an exception....I feel back in the groove!
After today's good news with the doc, I came home, changed up and went on over to the gym. Original plan was to hit the chest, shoulder... Read more
Today, I am a BIPED!
Yes people, today I walk on 2 feet, unassisted by crutch or cane!
Drove up to Tallahassee this AM, had some X-Rays taken and saw the doc a few minutes later. He took a look, smiled, and said, "This is textbook, as a matter of fact I want to... Read more
WWII Honor Flight
Well I'm at it a little late tonight, but it's been well worth it.
A friend of mine that owns a restaurant in town called and said, "Hey tonight we're going to Pensacola to meet some returning WWII vets, let's go!"
It's a tradition the... Read more
Sore....and liking it!
So today I decided, "I'm making time to warm-up for my workout" and left work 30 minutes EARLY, to go ride the spin bike for 20 minutes before hitting the weight room. What a difference a warm up makes!
Now I wasn't my usual speed demon, e... Read more
Bring on the Change!
Ahhhh relaxing weekends....NOT!
The rest of April and a good chunk of May are gearing up to be frenetically busy. Like many of you, I've got a lot going on at work, and on top of that I've got a bunch of family about to descend on us (Mom, ... Read more
So today I went to the High School Prom....as a parent chaperone of course!
#2 son attends a special needs High School and these guys did some amazing stuff! SWMBO always tells me when we go to these things, "half the time you just want to... Read more
Stand Tall! Sit Tall!
So I'm a people watcher.
Now I don't leer, and I don't stare, but I spend just enough time at airports that when I get bored and pull my head out of the iPhone & Crackberry, I like to watch the hustle & bustle.
So of late, I've taken t... Read more
Dining Out...Without The Angst!
Well tonight we go out for dinner with my staff here in Vegas. The guys picked some BBQ joint for the event. And I'm totally OK with it.
What a change in just a few months! In January/February going out to eat was a significant emotional e... Read more
