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…

It was a dark dreary morning…

Regardless of the title, this story does have a happy ending. Shortly before 6:00 AM I woke up without the alarm clock, as is usually the case.  I’d actually been awake since 5:30 seeing what I could see.  Nothing had changed.  I got out of bed and walked down to the hall and went into…

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…

Looking more relaxed

There’s no way for me to sugarcoat it.  The last 10 months have been rough.  It’s taken time getting used to my dynamic eyesight. In December I met with, Ken Kreager, an old friend of mine from work that had suffered severe burns, in a gas explosion, when he was 8 years old.  Upon seeing…

One leg at a time

When I was in college there were many times that I was about to give up.  I had tried many different ways to learn and take tests with success.  After a few years of this the University of Toledo told me, college may not be for you.  They sent me a letter indicating that my…

Found on Earth

It was July 28th, 2000 and I had just started a new job at IBM and they had sent me to Chicago for orientation.  That evening I called an old friend, Sara, and we sat down and had dinner together.  We talked for hours about what has been going on in our lives and with…
