You May Be Right, I May Be Crazy (Tip of the Hat to Billy Joel!)

I've been slow getting back into the saddle of daily posting here. My life continues to be crazy, but I'm got a good handle on it. I suspect by the middle of September, I'll be settled in to the new house and I will be able to devote much more time to write. My time here will be rather spotty for... Sign in to see full entry.

Even At Second, You Are A Winner

I post this in response to some comments over on my previous post about my racing write ups. I won an award for this article. Even as I read it again today, I find my eyes getting damp. V Another Saturday night at Crystal Motor Speedway saw another large car count and a huge crowd. There were over... Sign in to see full entry.

... Followed by...

It doesn't happen often, but my local newspaper printed one of my race results columns on-line. I put out a results thing every week in three different formats (short to long) for newspapers, websites, and 'blogs.' Naturally, they printed the shortest possible version on their website. Just wanted... Sign in to see full entry.

Sorry About That!

Well, my unexpected 'vacation' is over, but I had some interesting things happen. I made a last minute decision to do a ten day tour of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for my up coming series of e-books I've titled "Wandering Across Michigan's Upper Peninsula." I spoke with at least a dozen park... Sign in to see full entry.

Deer Deer! Smile!

From where I sit, I can hear the traffic on the highway a quarter mile or so down the little dirt road we live on, but here, it's quiet. These things never happen when I have my camera, but I went out to walk with the dogs and spooked out a pair of spring fawns. My dogs are quite large, but even... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Clip of A Upper Peninsula Waterfalls

I should probably be posting this over in my "Let's Write!" blog, but it's a holiday so I'll post it where ever I want! This is another video I am going to include in my ebook about my adventures in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I love waterfalls so you are going to see numerous videos in my...

Tuck Me In and Wish Me Sweet Dreams

I put up a nearly 2000 word post of "Things My Father Taught Me" to last the for the entire weekend. I'm not going any place due to the monster traffic headed north. I had to go out this morning and decided that it wasn't worth the possibility of dying to go someplace 350 miles away in that snarled... Sign in to see full entry.

Kvetching, Turkeys, and Fox (Oh My!)

I've noticed some thing that bugs me here lately, not that anyone cares. I usually write my stories in Word, using "Bookman Old Style" in a size 14 font. I'm blind as a bat, so I figure if it bugs me to read tiny print, it has to bother others. Any way, when I copy a piece of my work into the pages... Sign in to see full entry.

Hammer Time

An unexpectedly busy day today. It started out quiet, but then the phone calls from elderly friends began. Long story short, I've been out doing things for people. I don't mind, I just hope I'm buying some 'special favors' as I get along in age. I got home just about the time it began to rain here,... Sign in to see full entry.

I Gotta Get With The Program!

Just a quick note to those asking about my health. My blood test came back with a slightly elevated white blood count, (10,000 vs a normal of about 4,500), meaning that my body was gearing up to fight something, but the rest of the blood test didn't show any signs of the endocarditis that I was...
