Why?

Many people have asked me if I’ve gone through the stage of asking, “why me?”.  I don’t know.  That seems like a stupid question.  Who’s going to answer and will it change anything?  Maybe I have, but I just don’t remember it.  I can remember nights where I couldn’t get to sleep.  While on heavy…

I did it!

I was as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs this morning, but I did it.  At both church services I gave the following speech on my progress.  It’s amazing how much it took for me to stand in front of a crowd and speak.  It used to be so…

The Great Oz has spoken!

I’m sure that you’ve heard the line from the Wizard of Oz, “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”.  Sometimes I want to tell people to “pay no attention to the curtain”.  The “curtain” being my face.  Many people, that know me, say that they hardly notice.  When kids stair I miss out…

Pancakes anyone?

Do you ever notice, life seems a lot simpler when we slow down and eat together?  In the late 90’s with 3 small children, Connie and I started a tradition that goes on until this day.  For those of you that know me, you’ll not be surprised that it revolves around food. It started in…

Where’s your center?

One of these days I’m really going to accept who I am. There’s something about being “that guy” that grows tiresome. I took my car in for an oil change last week. Could have been a Victoria’s Secret supermodel and not have gotten any more looks. They must have wondered, “how did that guy get…

My Six-Month Checkup

Last Friday was my scheduled Six-Month Checkup with my Neuro-Ophthalmologist.  Ophthalmologist  What a screwed up way to spell a weird word.  Anyway, earlier this week, the doctor’s office called and said that Dr. Katz was going to be out on medical-leave for 10 weeks.  Crap.  We had the opportunity to meet with his “Fellow” Dr. Collins…

It’s not that easy being Green

I told you last week about, my oldest son, Grant’s great taste in music.  Well, this week I went to my companies National Sales Meeting.  He gave me his old iPod to listen to during my flight there and back.  It was very nice to be able to close both my eyes and relax.  When…

Music to my ears!

Do you remember me telling you that my oldest son, Grant, set me up with some tunes for the first few months of this ordeal?  Since that time, even with improved vision, I’ve gotten more into listening to music.  You name the type of music and I think I’ve listened to it.  Pop, Rock and…
