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…

Best Christmas ever!

I know, it’s a big statement.  But, I’m a big statement kind of guy.  Just ask anyone. This Christmas season started off with the appreciation that I was here and could even see.  Once we had that, as a foundation, we built on the time-honored traditions of years past.  During our trip to Grandma &…

What’s new?

Many of you have asked how I’m doing.  I’m happy to say that things are going quite well.  It’ll be hard for you to look me in the eye and NOT wonder, “how can he say that?”. A friend and customer of mine innocently asked me this week, “what can’t you do that you wished…

Believe!

If you happen to see our family Christmas card this year, you’ll see that it says BELIEVE.  This has a lot to do with where we (the Wagner’s of Hilliard) have come from over the past few years. When we moved back to Ohio after 5 years in Illinois, I remember going to change our…
