Happy Birthday Mom


Happy Birthday Mom.

You would have been seventy seven years old today.

Perhaps more importantly you should be in Haley Anne and Emma Jo’s lives, as you were, and are, mine.

You and Dad still inspire me every day.  “My Mom: Story 5 – Pain and Strength”.

Two fun memories:

1.   When I was ten, I jumped off a three story radio tower using a homemade parachute from the silk sheets off Mrs. Burton’s bed.  You said:  “When you can walk again, I am going to kill you” (but, you hugged me for weeks and cried every day).

You made me feel invincible.

2.   At the Missouri State Cross Country Championships – you yelling:  “You go baby!  You got it.  You run that boy down!”.

And, I did. I was a champion.

My stomach hurts today.  And, I miss you more than I could ever relate in this Blog.

Thanks for just every thing.

Keep pulling for me.

I am still listening to

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
