Hot and Cold from Me and You

Tucson, Arizona

We got the rental and drove out to the ranch in the desert. Everything looks so beautiful this time of year. My nephews say it has been hot lately, but soon winter. It's ninety degrees now. I'm sitting in the parking lot of a Walgreens. The girls are inside shopping. We need to get to the motel,... Sign in to see full entry.

Tucson International Airport

I'm standing in line at Hertz. Why didn't I reserve from Avis? There is no line at all over there. Some adverising campaign. Or do these people know something I don't? Beautiful desert / farmland mix the closer to Tucson. Irrigation is a technique being used here to expand the city. Mountains are... Sign in to see full entry.

Phoenix International Airport

The family behind us was going to Maui. Long trip ahead of them. Who takes their children to Hawaii in the middle of October? I sat next to an attorney. He said he'd rather have been a teacher. He was quite interested in hearing about my ESL students. It's fun. The plane traveled 500 mph. We made it... Sign in to see full entry.

Des Moines International Airport

My TALKATIVE daughters discovered, while checking in, that United charges forty $ per checked baggage. US Air charges $15.00. We are on the concourse,"for ticketed passengers only". I chose a seat right in front of the boarding door. It looks like the plane is here already. It's dark out so it's... Sign in to see full entry.

US Airways Flight To Tucson

This morning the two girls and I board a US Air flight to Tucson. The girls have made up all college work and have arranged with professors to be gone Friday and Monday. The occasion is my mother's ninetieth birthday celebration. In attendance will be my sisters, brothers and families from... Sign in to see full entry.

Dodgers and Cubs

I always say this, and it especially hurts when it is true. A leader, a good leader, builds up his team. One by one, personality by personality, and as a whole. A loser leader engages in subtracting from his team. Withdrawing authority from former leaders, pitting one player against abother, putting... Sign in to see full entry.

Jose (Fat Boy) Molina Hits the Last Homer at Yankee Stadium

Babe Ruth said he would give a year of his life to hit a home run, in the first game of the 1923 opener at Yankee Stadium. He did. He then said, "God only knows who will hit the last one." That was 85 years ago. Tonight, Jose Molina, catcher for the New York Yankees, hit the last one. Andy Petitte... Sign in to see full entry.

Derek Jeter Playing Injured in Last at Yankee Stadium

The last home game at Yankee Stadium is aired tonight at 8 15 Eastern Time on ESPN. I checked the lineup and found all my regulars are still there, in spite of the scandals, divorce settlements, platonic affairs, bouts of addiction, petty jealousies, and my own absence on the scene. My kids made me... Sign in to see full entry.

Proud Father Talks About His College-aged Girls

Always ready to brag on my kids. I guess once a week isn' too bad. Chel is home for the weekend, doing laundry, cleaning up after the animals, cleaning her bathroom. She had a little birthday party to go to last night. Tonight she went to a movie alone. A true kingmi. Caitlin had a golf outing. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Chel Is Home for the Weekend. Caity is Exhausted!

Working twenty-three hours at the hospital, attending a full schedule of classes, Caitlin is sleeping in today. Well deserved rest. Chel found some Colorado peaches and bought a crate. Let me tell you, bloggers, these are the old-fashioned peaches of your youth. Soft, juicy, just full of flavor.... Sign in to see full entry.
