Chillin’ with Logan’s Run

Chillin’ with Logan’s Run

Monday night I sat among three people who’ve never seen Logan’s Run. By the midpoint, they looked a bit like my Sweetie there. Fortunately, no one looked like Skuttle. It blew my mind a bit. I watched that movie almost as soon as it came out and many, many times afterwards. I watched the TV […]

Old Van, New Worldview and Douglas Adams

Old Van, New Worldview and Douglas Adams

Those who follow my other blog know I’ve recently purchased a used van that brought to my attention the clinical depression I’ve been sliding into for the past year. If you don’t follow my personal blog, now you know. I won’t bore you with the details, but the van and the depression have brought out […]

Focus, Turtle-san

Focus, Turtle-san

Ever have one of those days when you’d rather take a nap than do the dishes? Me, too. Seems for the past year, I’ve been doing nothing but taking naps. OK, I’ve played Farmville, too, but mostly, when I’m not at work, I’m napping. Or wishing I were napping while I do a dozen other […]

Scattered in Sickness

Scattered in Sickness

I planned another post topic for today, but as I started writing, my “sick brain” got in the way and all the words piled up in the middle of the page. It was awful. I suspected I would have trouble when it took four tries to get my login password right. After that, it was […]

Lessons from A Cable TV Repairman

Lessons from A Cable TV Repairman

After five years of uninterrupted phone and DSL service, I went through enough trouble in six weeks to make me throw away my loyalties and join the cable movement. Yes, I was a little crazy. Between unplugging my phone for two weeks in an effort to make the Internet work, making seven service call appointments […]

Don’t Take God For Granted

Don’t Take God For Granted

I’ve talked to God a lot in the past year about all kinds of stuff. Weather, illness, old job, new job, book publishing, family matters – you name it, me and The Big Guy have talked about it. I’ve scoured the Bible looking for answers, I’ve listened to sermons and Christian music, I’ve attended Bible […]

High Anxiety

High Anxiety

This very morning I was on the Skype phone with Grace Bridges, publisher of Splashdown Books, when she pressed the “Publish” button. As I told her, my heartbeat quartered. TT: That’s a little less dramatic than doubling but more elevated than normal. “Yes, it is exciting, isn’t it?” she thought she agreed with me. Deep […]

Surgery Update

Surgery Update

Not the snappiest title, I agree, but it says what this is and I’m really, really tired. Mom’s improvement over the last week is as dramatic as her suffering the first week. She’s not ready for a marathon just yet (no matter what she tells you) but we can all imagine the day when she’ll […]
