Birthday Eve

I can't believe tomorrow that I'll be 59. Fortunately I feel about as good as I have in 5 years.

It was exactly one year ago that I had surgery on my neck. The recovery is about 100%. No pain, just a bit of numbness in my left hand on occasion.

Back in February I hired a trainer and he has made a world of difference.


Sometimes the stresses of life weigh down. Worries about work, sick pets, health, what the future holds. 

Then, when you possess a mind like mine, all that stress dissolves with a dream.

I was in England, in a large bakery and tea shop. I don't know if they have such things. The place was full of very mature women.  I was being ignored as a bothersome American. 

So, what did I do? Why I grabbed a wooden spoon and floated around the high ceilings like a witch on a broom making scary noises. 

That got their attention. 


Lately I've been having dreams where I walk about in public minus pants. Any pants. Naked to the world.

What the hell is that about?


My computer is fixed. My juices can flow. I must get back to the routine. I have missed posting my blog.

Perfect Hotdogs

Pictures work. Text works. The hotdogs look damn good.

Im so ready.

Hello People's

All my blog stuff is still broken. I just twisting in the wind here. Can't post pictures.

I had a great dive last weekend and can't post pictures.

I had a fantastic hot dog yesterday and can't post pictures.

Imagine cool dive pictures and hot dogs if you will.

West Coast Swing

Soon come Golden State. 

Not Quite Prime Time

I spoke too soon on things getting the blog fixed so I'll blog the way my ancestors did....with a computer.

Friday I head to the NC coast for some diving on Saturday. This will be the first big boy NC diving that I done in over two years. 

They don't call the NC coast The Graveyard of the Atlantic for nothing. The currents are big, storms come out of nowhere, and sands and conditions shift unpredictably. 

We will go out 20 miles and dive two wrecks in about 90 of water. The first is The Hyde. It was a WWII era dredge equipped with guns that was sunk in 1988 for a ref project. 

The second was The Gill, torpedoed by the Germans in WWII. 

Both should be interesting.

I have been to The Hyde once before but never saw it. The visibility was zero so I just felt up the Hyde. 

Good Lord

Okay, so here is the deal. I have been perfectly willing and able to post my blog here, but my iPad software of choice crapped out on me back in March. No worries I thought, they'll fix it.

They did fix it and broke it worse.

Then I turned to my Mac and the entire computer was corrupt. 

Today I got my computer back and it is operational. So, I'm blogging old school for now on a computer.

For those who hung around, thanks. 


Happy April Fool

Well, I gave up waiting for a bug fix on my trusted until two weeks ago Blogpress app. So I'm updating the blog the old fashioned way.....with a computer. The picture below is just a test to see if it renders properly.

Technical Difficulties

The blog is active but my choice app Blog Press is too buggy to post. Sorry for the interruption.

My Weekend

You fill in the words.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Word of the Day

(of a person) slender and elegant.

Such a cool word svelte. Who else tries and pairs an S with a V?

I use svelte whenever I can because life is short, and it's a cool word.

Now you go out and use svelte today.

There's A Story Here

My dog Georgie has one very bad habit. She forces herself out from under the huge fenced area to freedom.

The problem here is while I love her dearly, and she's not the smartest dog in the world, plus, she has one eye and is hard of hearing.

So I bopped over to Home Depot to buy some wooden stakes to stabilize the fence bottom and they wanted $2.25 a stake. Steak costs about the same.

HD has reject wood for 70% off so I made my own at a cost of 20 cents each.


The Amazon

They have electric ells, man eating fish, and other real monsters. Nope, I'm not going....ever.

Not on the bucket list.

Until the Cows Come Home

Traveling the rural roads in North Carolina yesterday and these fine beef cows appear in Ashboro.
