Farewell Johnny Robot - You Were Good For Me

Well. I've finished "Johnny Robot." I'm still working on the graphics and getting it by the toughest editor I've ever had... Johnny "Robot." As he read the final paragraphs of the story that he inspired and has helped co-write, I shed some tears as his young voice began to show he understood the... Sign in to see full entry.

A History Lesson

Today is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire that killed Gus Grissom, the first man to walk in space, Ed White, and local man, Grand Rapid's Roger B Chaffee. They were doing some pre-flight testing when an electrical fire broke out and they were unable to get out and all three died. Their... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Know How To Get To Oz?

First thing, I want to thank everyone who offered well wishes and prayers. It is highly appreciated. Naturally, they can't just 'do' the surgery, I have to get several MRI's and X-rays. This hernia is about two inches above my umbilicus (that's the belly button for the non-medical among us) and is... Sign in to see full entry.

Back From The Road... Again. An Answer For Golden Mean

It was a long trip but I made it home. I meant to post earlier... but Life occurred. I made it home safe and sound about three, just in time to spend some time with John discussing 'stuff.' He wanted his cover photo to be of him in his 'alien' outfit and his 'ray gun,' but I had to explain that... Sign in to see full entry.

On The Road Again, Gotta Be On The Road Again!

Today has become unexpectedly busy, a good thing I suppose. While I have given up doing all the things I've done for about 25 years at our local dirt race track (webmaster, photographer, local sports columnist), the one thing I've kept is the live broadcasting I do of the races. I do this at no cost... Sign in to see full entry.

Working With The Master

Working with my grandson Johnny has been a blast. He will read a passage I have written and then want to 'correct the dialogue ' to the version of the conversation he remembers having with me. I tried to explain 'writers perjogative' and he told me he didn't believe in that. BTW Blog It staff...... Sign in to see full entry.

I Was Powerless To Do Anything!

We had a power outage of unknown nature today about three minutes after I posted my joke of the day, roughly 10:30 AM EST. It just came back up about 5:10 PM EST. Try as you may, you can't see words typed on a keyboard hooked up to a powerless computer. The next section of "Johnny Robot" will come... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Fall In Love With A Dreamer (Tip of the hat to Kenny Rogers)

Title continued - The song the title was taken from was sung by Kenny Rogers and Kim Carnes) Song writers are authors too! Due to things going on here at home, I sent my nephew up to the new place to do the work I intended to do.He's half my age, so he should get it done a little quicker anyway. The...

It's Late - I'm Crazy

Realizing that this is a very raw file and subject to a later rewrite and editing, "Johnny Robot" my latest effort is a work of love, and my first effort since grinding to a halt back in late December. I had decided to go to bed early tonight, but my darn fingers began to itch, and that itch... Sign in to see full entry.

A New Flight of Fancy

'The moving finger writes, have having writ, moves on.' So said some philosopher type guy named Omar Khayyam sometime around 1050. Less cryptically, I guess it means I've righted my personal ship and am ready to move on. I have to address some publishing questions with "The Totally Unnecessary... Sign in to see full entry.
