My Affair
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      16 comments

My affair with this lady started when I was barely five. The first time I met her, I immediately fell in love. She was an older woman, but she would play with me and my friends. Sometimes she chased us and sometimes we chased her. It was a great... Read more
Mental Challenges and Your Weight
Monday, May 17, 2010      13 comments

I read Coach Nancy Howards blog today about being overweight and the perception that you were being judged multiple times through an average day. You would think that as a guy I would be less judgemental of myself, of my body, but that's no... Read more
How Wierd Can It Be Getting Sick
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      6 comments

Last night we checked in to the Holiday Inn Express in Flagstaff, AZ. MY DW and I were a little tired, having spent two hours getting over the Boulder dam due to construction, but nothing unusual. I got to bed at a reasonably early time of 10:30... Read more
Plans - And Reality
Sunday, March 28, 2010      2 comments

We had planned on being on the road today,- BUT . . . . the reality is that we are at the point in our lives when recovery time isn't what it was at 21, or 35, or even 50. We got back from all the "final things" and decided we were too tire... Read more

We got everything packed today. One last trip to the dump and we'll say good-bye to Pahrump and on our way to some green. Driving an average of 400 miles per day should put us home by Wednesday night of Thursday. Then a hide-out/recove... Read more
When Your Body Yells Obscenities at You
Thursday, March 25, 2010      3 comments

Today is and probably will be a difficult day for me. When I awoke this AM, my damaged lower back was screaming obscenities at me. It also caused a flare-up of my sciatica which ran to my hip and semi- locked it up and down to my right knee. ... Read more
Hot and Dry
Thursday, March 25, 2010      2 comments

Today was a separating and packing day. It was very, very dry with the humidity hovering around 23%, If you touched anything metal, you got bit. Sometimes the spark jumped nearly a half an inch. My DW isn't metal, but when I gave her a kiss... Read more
If Your Donkey is Too Old

I spent the day out in the sun in the great Death Valley. Today, being early in the spring, the temperature only hit 85 - nowhere near the record high of 134. Since it was only a day trip, we didn't get to see all of the various tourist sit... Read more

This isn't about something that bugs me - well, it is but there's nothing anyone but the Lord can do about it so, why get all upset? Had to take my brother to the airport in Las Vegas today so he could fly home to North Carolina to attend t... Read more

I've been dealing with some pretty big things that bug me, and if you are reading these, they probably bug you, too. Today I'm going to depart from the big bugging things to bring up a fairly small, but very intimate bug for SparkPeople. ... Read more
An Apology to Pahrump
Saturday, March 13, 2010      3 comments

Over the course of the past week, I have been taking pot-shots at the mid-sized, little town of Pahrump. I'm going to have to back off a step or two, because we found, out back and way off the main road (NV 160), a restaurant that could pla... Read more

Blind car drivers. I know, you're saying, "What? Blind Car Drivers? Isn't that an oxymoron? Like, duhh". Well, it would be an oxymoron if there were no blind car drivers, but there are blind car drivers. I'll give you some example... Read more

Children's Sports Parents. I'm not talking about the parents of kids that help coach and manage the teams, nor am I talking about the parents that come to the games and root for the team, including their children. What bugs me is those... Read more
