Good morning everyone,

I'll be packing soon for the next trade show in Omaha. Highs in the 50s for both days, which won't be as warm as it sounds.

Choco - Floyd Mayweather is from my home town here in Grand Rapids, MI.

Doc, you sound just like Peeps during one of his many convalescing periods. NO CAR! CAN'T DRIVE! BOO HOO!!! But in his case, it was because he kept totaling his cars!

Corned beef on Jewish rye? Sounds like moderate to severe heartburn! :-)

Doc, nothing beats New York, Chicago or Detroit kosher corn beef, or pastrami, on fresh-baked rye bread..

Along with a couple slices of Swiss cheese, fresh coleslaw and Russian dressing.

Fresh pickles too..!

"Corned beef on Jewish rye bread"? Sounds good. Nothing else does. Too bad I can't get one around here somewhere. One trouble is I CAN'T DRIVE --- DAMMIT!

Didn't realize how much this being an "invalid" would get to me, but it damned-sure does.

You know what "invalid" really means, right?

I'M NOT A VALID HUMAN BEING --- I'M AN INVALID, AND I CAN'T DRIVE AND I HAVE TO HAVE SOME TWERP COME TELL ME HOW TO WIPE MY BUTT AND TO PUSH A BOX OF ROCKS AROUND ON A TABLE CLOCKWISE TEN TIMES, THEN COUNTERCLOCKWISE TEN TIMES, THEN PICK UP LEFT FOOT TEN TIMES, THEN RIGHT FOOT TEN TIMES....

F___ this! Tomorrow I'm going to call some people and tell them to get something DONE so I can be "VALID" again or else I'm going to blow a fuse!

Wonder if they'd consider me "valid" if I throw their damned box of rocks at 'em?

Our game producer son yesterday added to the list of celebrities our family has come in direct contact with. Floyd "Money" Mayweather, a prize fighter of some note, is doing his training here in Sin City for the FIGHT OF THE CENTURY on May 2. Sonny went down with his boss to check out the advertising for a game they are producing and he met the whole Mayweather crew.
Wife met Bill Clinton, told Helmut Kohl where the bathroom was and poured weal American coffee for Prince Andrew of England.
Second son has interviewed for a job with HUSTLER magazineith Larry Flynt--a publisher who has been quite a name in the porn industry.
Me? I met Wacky and Loree once. My only claim to celebrity fame.

Good morning. Slept okay, but I sure am tired of this clammy weather. Right now I'd be happy to trade with some desert outpost in the Negev or somewhere for just a day or two of "hot an dry."

It's all AlBore's fault....and I hope he freezes his azz off while that mange spot on the back of his bean spreads.

I'm teleworking today with a day chocked full of meetings. I'm taking off late this afternoon to work with a high school band as they prepare for festival.

We got in a walk yesterday evening before the rain arrived.

Off to it.

Good morning, everyone. Slept pretty well for an old boy with a bunch of busted "stuff" that still tells the news when rolling over. Be glad when that stops.

Still....it's good to be alive, especially when there are people and puppies to love and be loved by. Got one curled up next to me right now. Beautiful angel!

God bless us every one.....later.....gotta have more coffee.....sure wish I could have some with Sir Joseph and his crew in Tennessee.

Later, all....

Happy Monday! 45 degrees this morning and rain forecasted for most of the week.

They got the race completed at Atlanta Motor Speedway; it started late as they waited for the rain to clear and track to dry. I watched it for a while in between napping, lol.

re: GSU Basketball - I actually misspoke yesterday, the Panthers actually have two remaining games; they play one before Saturday's game - at UL-Monroe - on Thursday.

re: Sun Belt Tournament - not yet sure what I'm doing this year; I will travel down to NOLA so we'll see.

Off to start the day.

I won't try that, BayleeBug. Fact is, I guess I'll let up on the OJ since I'm having LOTS of troubles now with indigestion, and, since I'm taking three blood thinners already, I cannot afford to use my old standby, Alka-Seltzer. And none of the other stuff seems to help much. I hate Tums!

Oh, well....time to hit the sack. Perchance to sleep.

Ohboy...think I'll order me a humidifier. Sure tired of this coughing. Gotta try something new. I did break out my little albuterol inhalation gizmo and it helped for a while, so I'll start using that on a regular basis. Tough trying to make a comeback from a freaking heart attack with all this crap going on.

Oh, well....

One nice thing is I'm losing weight like crazy. Not too difficult when you can only eat three French fries and a couple bites of a hamburger pattie for supper. Only really enjoyable things now are buttermilk and orange juice, so I always have plenty of that on hand. NOTHING else tastes good, though.

Oh, well...

Joe, if K'ville is to your west, you must be deep in the Smokies. When we lived in Memphis, our favorite vacation spot was the Gatllinburg/Pigeon Forge area. That was before Pigeon Forge was completely commercial.

By last night, the ice on the roads had finally melted enough to be able to drive safely. Mr. Diva drove back from Arkansas on Friday. What would normally be a 5 hour drive took him almost 9 hours. Tomorrow, he will be back on the plane. He is project manager for a major consulting company. His current client is in NW Arkansas. He has been on this project for over a year and expects this assignment to continue through November.

Happy Sunday! 37 degrees and raining this morning.

The party was a wonderful success; our daughter did a wonderful job putting together everything. It was a Studio 887; which her company's facility. We had a great time!

The GSU Men's basketball team won last night so they're in second place in the (Sun Belt) conference with one game remaining versus Georgia Southern next Saturday at home. The women lost so they are likely on the bubble to make the Sun Belt tournament. The Women's tournament starts on March 11, and the men start on the 12th.

Off to start the day early as I have an early morning rehearsal because Wednesday evening everything was cancelled.

Have a great day all!

Sounds as if his cataract surgery went well, Choco. If it went as well as mine, he'll be good for life. Mine was over ten years ago and I still don't need glasses for anything at all.

MISERABLE weather! I just talked Baby Dotter into going to Sonic to liberate one foot-long hotdog that I just KNEW would taste great --- it didn't. Nothing does, really...nothing except buttermilk. Think I'm gon' have a small pizza for supper. Maybe that'll be edible, anyway.

Yeah, melatonin...need to go to Amazon and get some...
