Accidents and Charities

I went to a charity event last night put on by a local racing chatboard that I run and host, (Michigan Short Track Racing Club) where we raised several thousand dollars for two area racers that had suffered some type of huge personal loss in the past year. This was our 12th annual event.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Bard

Last night was kind of a neat time as a few friends dropped over and we were talking literature. A couple of them had taken the same college course I had taken on William Shakespeare and we got talking about our favorite Shakespeare soliloquy. Fully realzing that Shakespeare wasn't for everyone, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Cold... and Cold Blooded

We'll start with the good news. My wife is home and all seems to be going well. She is breathing easier and she looks better. Thanks to all who sent well wishes.

I Wish I Was 15 Again...

Well, good news everyone. The car wasn't happy about it but it started on the third time it rolled over. I think I heard it make a snide remark about my ancestry but it started and stayed running. Hurray! The water had frozen up as well and we finally coaxed it to dome back aboard about 5PM, just in... Sign in to see full entry.

Frozen Stiff in The Great Frozen Tundra... But I Repeat Myself

Sweet Mother of Pearl Bodine (Mother of Jethro Bodine)!!! It was 22 below zero last night. Our pipes froze up but we have them beginning to gurgle now and hopefully I'll be able to shower soon. I hate not being able to shower first thing in the morning! It's nearly noon and I haven't had the courage... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter Blues And Marriage

Another night that is expected to be at least ten below or worse. Welcome to winter in the north lands! I spent several hours at the hospital with my wife today. She is breathing better and her fever is down to about 101.2 which is a marked improvement over the 104+ temp of yesterday. Depending on... Sign in to see full entry.

It Gives Me Fever...

Such a long day and very little to show for it. My wife has been less than healthy for a while and about noonish, she began to run a fever of 104.2 and I took her to the emergency room. She has a pneumococcal pneumonia and ended up admitted into the critical unit. She is very weak and feverish. I... Sign in to see full entry.

You Don't Own Me

I saw where Leslie Gore died today at age 68 of lung cancer. I was just getting into the music scene myself when a very young Miss Gore began to hit the radio waves with such songs as “It’s My Party,” “Judy’s Turn To Cry,” “She’s a Fool,” “That’s the Way Boys Are” and “Maybe I Know.” I was ten and...

I Carry It In My Heart

My wife was quite uneasy last night. She has frequent periods of 'unease' so I decided to read her a love poem from e.e. cummings to help calm her a bit. This was a long time favorite of mine because it is the truth. i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere... Sign in to see full entry.
