The Position Has Been Filled!

OK, the position was never “officially” posted but I’m happy to say that I’m no longer in need of a seeing-eye-dog (for the purposes of golf!).  My good friend Cary Allion has stepped to be my seeing-eye-“slink”dog.   You may have seen my request last night.  If you didn’t, please reply to this note with…

Annoyed? Get over it.

As many of you know, I’ve had several surgeries over the past couple of years.  Since my last post, on April 2nd, I had an appointment with Dr. Katz, my Neuro-Ophthalmologist.  It happened to be the day after my 2 year anniversary of brain surgery.  Maybe I was feeling a little extra punchy.  Maybe I…

Ahhhh! I’ve got a brain cramp.

I know that I have things that I need to tell you.  I’m just not sure about my delivery.  I can’t tell you how many times I wake up in the middle of the night and think about things to write.  But, here I sit on Sunday night wallowing in a lack of words. I…

Grant’s 18 in 10 days

Holy Cow!  On March 6th, my oldest son will be able to vote.  His seventeenth birthday meant that we couldn’t claim him as a deduction on our taxes.  This means that he has to register for the Selective Service which, among other things (I think), makes him eligible for the draft.   The next thing…

Who left the lid up!?!

Normally, those 5 words make the males in my house very nervous.  We’re all trying to retrace our footsteps and remember where and when we last went to the bathroom.  It is tough, considering we can’t even remember what we had for breakfast.  We have new toilets at our house that prevent the lids from…

Film at 11:00

What does “Film at 11:00” mean?  I’ll get to that.  What it doesn’t mean is that you’ll be seeing me post my current picture any time soon. I’m happy to report that the surgery went well.  Connie spoke with the doctor and he seemed content.  I suppose the healing process has begun but, for now,…

What we have here is a failure to communicate!

Well, I’m in trouble.  I forgot to tell my mom and, secondarily, all of you that I’m having the Frontalis Sling Surgery on Wednesday morning.  It will be an outpatient procedure with “general” anaethesia. In case you don’t remember, my last post ended….. “My appointment was on Monday, the 31st.  He told me that it…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Is it too late for me to say that…or too early?  I said “Happy New Year” to one of my customers, Friday.  He and I had been back to work since Wednesday and both thought that now would be a good time to stop with the holiday blessings.  Maybe…

We all need a Mentor!

I don’t care who you are or what you do, we all need a mentor.  It doesn’t have to be someone that, you perceive, is “better” than you.  It does need to be someone that you can learn from and share ideas with.  My dad lost his mentor, Bob Dibling, more than a year ago….
