Reflections from the Road: June 26, Day 5, San Antonio Riverwalk & a Bucket of Coronas

I just spent 39-days driving cross-country & here is one of my reflections from the experience. Enjoy On every level, what’s the plan? Maybe I’m starting a bit too deep. It’s a Monday night and I’m sitting outside at one of San Antonio’s Riverwalk restaurants watching the couples stroll by. Four Coronas in, I have serious doubts about my observations & my ongoing unspoken commentary. … Continue reading Reflections from the Road: June 26, Day 5, San Antonio Riverwalk & a Bucket of Coronas

Pacing Myself

I’m a lot better than I was even just a couple months ago. I’ve retired the walker to storage in the garage and I’m focusing on not leaning on the cane when I walk. When I wake in the morning I take a quick pain inventory and except for the bottom of my feet still suffering from neuropathy my legs feel really close to normal. … Continue reading Pacing Myself

The Love in Your Day

Last week I wrote this thought on my white board in my office: What is it that you most love in life, and how do you express it in your day to day routine? Thinking about the aunts and uncles who’ll be at this year’s Christmas gathering, and realizing that the list is getting shorter. My dear sister-in-law, Connie, passed last Spring. And a life-long … Continue reading The Love in Your Day

Intelligently Confused about God

While I continue to wander about in my head about my relationship with God, I continue to have encounters with individuals on similar courses, though, perhaps heading in a different direction. For example, last night at a local watering hole, while enjoying the evening’s Monday Night Football game, a gentleman ordered up his bucket of Buds and after random chit-chat mentioned his faith and his … Continue reading Intelligently Confused about God

11 Things the Bible Bans, #12 Diggnation Talking Religion

A friend once quipped about how stupid it is when MDs think that just because they are experts in one thing, that they must be experts in other things. For example, being an expert surgeon doesn’t mean that one is an expert at running a business (as many office managers for the medical profession painfully understand). Doctors are obviously not alone in this delusion. I … Continue reading 11 Things the Bible Bans, #12 Diggnation Talking Religion

Everyone Wears a Team Uniform at Friendly Confines

Not a great photo and not even close to showing the percentage of people who come to Friendly Confines sporting their favorite team uniforms. It’s also evident in the noise level and shouting and cheering how many partisans are in attendance. Go Bears! er… I mean Dolphins! jbb Continue reading Everyone Wears a Team Uniform at Friendly Confines

Friends Looking Out for One Just for Me

I have these two wonderful friends, Dan and Terri, who are always looking out for my happiness. They’re a young happily married couple, any two of which is an oddity these days and whenever we go out they’re always looking for a woman for me. It’s very endearing to me. So, several weeks ago, knowing that there was no talking them out of their self-appointed … Continue reading Friends Looking Out for One Just for Me

What to Include & Exclude After Re-Imaging My Laptop

I had my laptop re-imaged this past week because of problems installing and running FCP. Painful. So, tonight I’m spending the first part of my Thanksgiving break re-installing software. This is a very familiar tale for me. Alas, in previous years I was usually installing something for a family member. Not too likely this time. Thus, the reason I’m even bothering to write about this … Continue reading What to Include & Exclude After Re-Imaging My Laptop

November 4th, 2008

As much as I’ve wanted to, I just haven’t had the time to sit down and do any serious blogging.
