Happy New Year/Rebooting
Tuesday, December 31, 2013     

Happy New Year all. I hope all your goals can be met. Remember. Keep then simple and attainable and yet meaningful. I decided that I wanted to reboot my Spark membership. Reboot is the correct word. Not restart. I haven't stopped. But ... Read more
Best. Christmas. Ever.
Sunday, December 15, 2013     

I don't know if it's my imagination or not, but it seems that the Salvation Army is out in force this year. I know it's Chritmas season and they are always out, but this year it seems more so. Whenever I pass them, if there is any jingly in... Read more
More son had a bad scare
Thursday, December 12, 2013     

Miguelito, Mike, my baby. He lives in LA and is an aspiring actor. Until that happens he works retail in a clothing store. Yesterday ... well to make his long story short ... the store was held up at gunpoint. In fact two guns ... pointed a... Read more
It's snowing a little here. Pain in the butt snow
Tuesday, December 10, 2013     

It snowed here again today. What I would call a nuisance snow. About three or four inches and the street were nasty for about an hour then just wet all day. Schools closed before flake one fell. If they had opened school on time, they ... Read more
Today's Family Photos
Wednesday, December 04, 2013     

As in photos *for* my family. Prep for these things is never pleasant. I have done three colonoscopies and I have done three different preparation regimes and none of them has been pleasant. Just differently miserable. They all seem to invo... Read more
Preparation Day
Tuesday, December 03, 2013     

It turns out that I had totally misread the instruction for my colonoscopy prep. I am ok to do the procedure tomorrow according to my doctor's office. Of course that means fasting today. I was OK until after lunchtime. Then it got rough. I ... Read more
A missed appointment, False choice, Hiding stuff.
Tuesday, December 03, 2013     

I was scheduled to have my colonoscopy on Wednesday, but I messed up. I was supposed to refrain from aspirin for seven days. Oops. I was supposed to be taking a prescription for the last four weeks. I completely forgot about it until ... Read more
Back from Denver.
Saturday, November 30, 2013     

So glad to be in my own house. The flight was not so terribly early, 9:15 out of Denver, but Dave's house is an hour away. Add in time to return the car rental and take the bus to the terminal, account for time for holiday travelers floodin... Read more
Going home
Saturday, November 30, 2013     

Back to Baltimore tomorrow. It's been a good four days visiting Dave, Carolyn, and Colin in Boulder CO. All the better since Dr Dani and her David made it up from Corpus Christi TX. But as sad as it will be to say goodbye until Christmas fo... Read more
My daughter the doctor seeking medical advice from me.
Friday, November 29, 2013     

Dr Dani, my daughter the doctor, and I ran a 5k Turkey trot today in Boulder CO. It was cold by Corpus Christi standards but chilly as far as I was concerned ... about 38ºF. It seems the Coloradans thought it was cold to. My rule: It's not ... Read more
Things I wonder about
Thursday, November 28, 2013     

The paper towels in the public toilet: by the time it automatically feeds me enough towels to dry my hands, my hands are dry. Air dryers: they are missing a step. 1. Push button 2. Rub hand under warm air. 3. Wipe hands on your pants. T... Read more
I got this ... maybe not today ... but I got this
Wednesday, November 27, 2013     

I am so glad I have finally learned that tomorrow is another day. The day started well enough with a good breakfast of yogurt and strawberries. On the flight I had a packet of peanuts and some pretzels. Not bad. But by the time I reach... Read more
