For years we had a big 4th of July bash... but a few years ago it just got too big... 40-50 people in our small house was just overwhelming. So this year, we are just having a few friends over and prolly won't even shoot off any fireworks. And ... Read more

Sometimes this crazy old house seems like a long lost friend... Today was my first full day home after my 2 great weeks of annual Army training in southern MO. I guess it seems odd to call my Army duty a break, but it really was... just ki... Read more

For the most part I have been not taking rides while I have been here... and it's okay. The gym and the PX are both a mile away, a mere 15-20 minute walk. It gets me how many people think I'm nuts and consider them to be a long way away. Tonigh... Read more

The first week at "summer camp" went fine. The female barracks are quiet... only 12 of us in a space meant for prolly 4x that number... and the A/C works... so it's all good. I haven't been particularly faithful with the calorie counting..... Read more

Name a song from a band you hate... this one makes me smile simply because it doesn't specify whether you have to like the song or not... How about this... I am not sure if I like the band Placebo or not... but I do know that I hate (with t... Read more

Name a song from your favorite band... wow, this one is tough. I have several bands that could be considered faves... I think ABBA has to be my all-time #1 group. Now, which song to pick... that is hardly fair... and no, my favorite song from ... Read more

Name a song that makes you fall asleep... I will have to go with almost anything Enya on that one... *********************** It's take me a bit to get back on here. Last week was just kind of a mess with Bert passing and then the pregnant d... Read more

My day was going along as my day tends to do. It had a bit of a surreal quality to it, but it was okay... then my phone rang at lunch... it was my friend's wife calling to tell me he'd committed suicide. Everything just kind of stopped there. I ... Read more

Name a song that you know all the words to... there are a bunch of those since I'm a lyrics junkie... I will say "Why Paddy's Not at Work Today"... an old folk song that is very silly and yes I can sing it all from memory... Dear Sir, I wri... Read more

Name a song that reminds you of a certain event.... This one is pretty easy too. "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns n Roses reminds me of Air Force Basic Training. It was really popular at the time and when I was near a music-emittin... Read more
