  With all of the devastation and destruction that the south is facing tonight I find my heart heavy with grief. Trying to twitter with family in Tennessee.  Been on the phone all day with other relatives.  Everyone is fine so far. Trying to go about my daily activities but find it hard to concentrate with all that is going on.  Im just going to try to relax knowing that my family is safe tonight and pray… Continue

Tomorrow my summer 2011 begins ... what will it bring?

Made it through the packing list .... and yea, I agree ..... it's too long.  The truck is packed.  I go see my surgeon tomorrow morning hoping to get a thumbs up regarding the body work done last Monday.  My truck has a new radiator and new spare tire ... Irene even cleaned the inside for me .... it looks great!   So the long wait and all the preparations are finished.   Now it's just a matter of "execution" as they say in the big leagues.   I've daydreamed so much about what the summer may… Continue

13 days

Not much to say today, had an awesome easter with the grandprincess.  she did not get alot of candy but she got 12 plastic eggs with girly treasure in them for her jewel box.  We then were outside most of the day.  When the temp gets higher then 40 here it seems like summer time.  I can finally see the flower beds and the rocks that Brianna found in South Dakota got put in the beds today.  Got the ipod all… Continue

17 days and counting

Took a run up to Yellowstone yesterday and the Old Faithful complex is like a maze driving through because the snow is so high.  The new visitors center is amazing.  I cant wait to get up there.  It was a nice day all in all. Got to see first hand some idiots go under the tape at a hot pool to get a photo when the jerks should have been on the boardwalk. My Sprint phone worked up there but was on roam but… Continue

20 Days and counting down

  Ran up to the south entrance of the park today to do like a trial run of how far it is from my house to old faithful, but that entrance was closed.  The Flagg Ranch is still blissfully under a blanket of deep snow as is everything else up that way.  We did see a moose laying by the creek outside of Moran Jct. and also a moose in the field closer to Teton Village.  The weather was nasty, rain and snow mix.  We are going up to… Continue

21 days

Started out the morning with snow which must have came in last night and now freezing rain.  Not much hope for heating as the ceiling is low and the thermometer reads below 20 degrees.  I have to run into Jackson to pick up a few things.  I am going to pack most of my stuff this afternoon so I wont have any last minute laundry.  Putting my bedding in the cloth laundry bag to kill 2 birds with one stone. … Continue

Spring Break '11

I was a bit worried five years ago about how to spend all the time between gigs.  Well, actually the time was not the concern...but how to afford all the time.  I have a big six days again between exit and arrival.  One whole week without working.

I was attempting to get another week in there and found a company that was OK with that, but I decided I'd rather be there at least a little before the opening.

My last day of my last season at the Kay El Bar will be around 5 pm on…

27 days and counting down

             Just about every muscle I got is pulled from the slip under the truck earlier.  Been sitting in the hot tub so its getting better.  I did get some of that new water enhancer and its pretty good. Had a sample in the store and If i were to compare it to something else I would have to say Sobe Life Water.  You can make this as strong as you want.  Im off to idaho falls again today to return the… Continue

31 days and counting down

  My list is short now.  Just things that I will not need in May, When I got up this morning here was 4 inches of snow on the back deck and so white out you can not see the neighbors house or anything else for that matter.  My son informed me that he has the comforter that I had planned to bring to yellowstone so that means back to the store.  Nothing much else going on except watching youtube videos of the… Continue

Oh! Oh! A break Down!!

Here we sit just a day's drive from where we were headed one week ago...Our van dropped it's transmission,in Gallup New Mexico  as it pulled our trailer nice and easy,first it lost it back-up gears ( we limped into a local RV Park) going straight in forward...We are lucky,our transmission is still under warrenty,but the nearest place to ship one was Wisconsin, so what does one do without a way to see Gallup?  Walk down the highway along Old 66,restraunts, of a lime long ago...But there is a… Continue

Go Now , or Forever Hold Your Peace .

Greetings to All - and excuse this musing .

Today , 04APRIL2011.....I am 71 years , and in proper celebration I baked up a modest pan of hashish brownies . Before I continue  , let me add quickly that I cancelled the work contract with my employer .

I have been feeling a bit peevish , no appetite to speak of really . No energy only lethargy , difficult for the thriving adventure sort as myself .

I started smoking Dunhills at 12 . Swiping a few here and there from…

My nerves are getting me already

Laffin- Trying to do too many things at one time and with school Im just too damn excited to sleep.  Not sure if it is the possibility of sleeping by myself or not.  I haven't done this but a few times in the past 23 years.  Not saying that Im not looking to no cover or pillow hog.  I am working on a revised packing list because my stuff pile exceeds my actual space. I got most of the stuff that I needed to buy and the new work shoes are broke in nicely ( was wearing them when I slipped on the… Continue
