An Old Swayback Thorobred

In high school we used to ride horses just outside of town, before the interstate went through. I rode Hanna, the peaceable old mare even the children could ride. My friend rode his father's crazy Arabian stallion, Hannibal. As a novice, I employed the strategy of jumping off any time I felt I had... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm having a wonderful week. The girls are done with summer school today. We have more time together and I plan to cook a few meals. Monday I did an all-niter with a friend from the 7th grade. That was over the phone. I hadn't spoken to her or seen her for forty years. We were from the same... Sign in to see full entry.

Now I Can Rest

I was up at 6:00 after two hours sleep, walking to the drug store for a clip board, driving to the laundry to see if my poster was still up, driving over to the east side to check preparations for their all day festivities. Then back to the house to wait on my girls to get up and go with me for the... Sign in to see full entry.

Fun Fun Fun Till Her Daddy Takes the T-bird Away!

Been a stressful week, but the weekend holds out to be fun. This is the final week of summer school for the girls so they have been busy studying, sharing books and notes, helping one another through the class. Both are working nearly every day, so that added to their stress. As for me, I took the... Sign in to see full entry.

In July I Thank God for MLB

Today I was ill. Unable to sleep all night, I lay on the couch all day watching baseball. St. Louis beat by the Cubs in the afternoon game of a double header (see the twilight game at 8:00 ET on ESPN); Milwaukee bested by Joe Torre, Mattie Ramirez and the LA Dodger dynasty; Kansas City Royals beaten...

Mid-Summer Report on the Kingmi Family

I can't get into the second half of the summer, even though we are a week past July 4th; the All Star Game is next Tuesday. That is the traditional midpoint of summer for me. Of course, MLB is counting mid-season which plays through October. Ordinarily, I would be back in school by the third week of... Sign in to see full entry.

Vogue Is Traveling for Us, Where I Want to Be

What I should be planning is a ten-year tour of Europe and the Middle East. What vogue is doing, posting pictures from Constantinople and reading up on Roman and Greek Myths. God I wish I were with her over there. But no. Another fantastic day as a dutiful single dad of two college girls. Wash... Sign in to see full entry.

INDEPENDENCE DAY AS A SINGLE DAD AND SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATE

Saturday dawned with the rain continuing to fall hard. I slept one hour, 2:30 - 3:30 AM. The girls were in their beds and all seemed right with the earth, so I just stood at the doorway and watched the nocturnal comings and goings of the neighbors. I kept the TV on HBO and got caught up on several... Sign in to see full entry.

My Impression of St. Louis

My initial reaction to St. Louis is, why did I drag everyone all that distance to Key West? Now, granted, the ocean is the ocean, and key West has more ocean than most places. So, for that, there is no other Key West. But for the "out of sight" prices on everything, they make you want it. St. Louis,... Sign in to see full entry.

Aha! Internet Access!

When school let out June 4th I finalized my plans to travel to Key West with the girls. We arrived on Monday this week and stayed three days and nights at the Sheraton Suites Resort. Very plush, on the beach here in Key West, on S. Roosevelt Ave. I used the fitness room each day and fell very strong... Sign in to see full entry.
