Yes, We Still Hold Hands

Good morning.  The ride in this morning included forgetfulness of the first speed bump (only fifteen yards from the front door) which rocked the nonsense out of my first cup of coffee and splashed it up onto the seat.  There’s absolutely no reason my pants should be wet this morning from coffee but fortunately I [...]

Shaking the Magic 8-Ball

The 7,000 Club

Originally posted on Papa’s blog: “Cancer … We “CAN” Beat This": About a month ago I placed an excited phone call to the first of Bonnie’s Beautiful Booster’s (Mary) to let her know she was the 6,000th visitor to this blog.  Mary was also the first of Bonnie’s friends to make the trek across country [...]

We’re in Good Shape

From time to time I’ve littered this blog with baseball metaphors, and as the Major League Baseball season begins its second half of the season I thought perhaps this would be a good time to provide predictions for the second half, though without a crystal ball I will just count on hope and optimism as [...]

Cellular Memory

I normally arrive at our monthly meetings for the Finding Inner Strength Together (FIST) group about 40 minutes or so before things begin.  This time is normally spent with Cindi to discuss the topic of the day.  This is the time when Cindi gives me a brief of sorts of any new members to the [...]

It’s Got to be The Buckhorn!

So with five  months worth of calendar pages tossed to the side like the scraps from last night’s dinner I thought a checkup on our New Year’s resolutions would be in order.  Unless you offered your resolve to me I would have no way of knowing how well you did in keeping that promise to yourself.  [...]

I Can Dream … and I Will

“My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.” – Anais Nin So where in the world have I been, right? Perhaps that’s been the question of the day when you’ve searched for a new post, or perhaps my ego is so bloated I just assume you’re sitting there [...]

Improving Our Outcome

“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe” – Gustave Flaubert Below was originally posted in the Husband’s Support Group – Finding Inner Strength: I assume we all watch the local news in the evening, perhaps we even watch the world news when we’re finally home.  The jacket has been hung [...]

Never Lose at Home

“Never lose at home” – yes, another sports metaphor.  I’m sitting here tonight watching the Boston BRUINS and Washing Capitals in the first round of the NHL playoffs.  Our youngest daughter Logan is in the kitchen preparing tonight’s meal and my bride rests on the couch under her favorite blanket while the men of both [...]
