Day One – September 10, 2012


Sorry it has taken so long to start this blog. I have had no good WiFi connection on the road until now to get this set up plus some nights I had no amenities - I was in a steel tent "roughing it" as it were. I will post each day that I already have … Continue reading Day One – September 10, 2012

It's good to be home but I am somewhat anxious to get back to work to get my head in another place. Today was a little rough in spots. The last time I came back from KS a few weeks ago I found that getting back to work was pretty beneficial for me. It really … Continue reading August 2nd, 2018

Some Thoughts on Travel

I am typing this while on an airplane heading back home. I have been in Kansas visiting family for almost a week. Cancer is rearing its ugly head in the family again, this time affecting my dad. We are staying optimistic, waiting for the results from his visit with the oncologist. There are good signs … Continue reading July 17th, 2018

I finally got my tattoo refreshed and it looks so much nicer...ESPECIALLY with Meghan's name now added. It got subtly updated a little bit but is still the classic style it was when I got it 35 years ago. It makes me want to get more. I guess it's better than heroin.
