Note: It’s taken me several sleepless nights to try and put these words together. They still seem woefully pathetic in expressing the sadness I carry and the good memories of the small part of my friend’s life that I was honored and humbled to be a part of, but I hope they will do it […]

As of today, I only have sixty days left in my 50’s. After that, I will enter my 6th decade on this earth. It doesn’t feel like it’s been THAT long when I look back, but the birth certificate doesn’t lie, right? When I was 19 and in college, I had a professor who was […]

April was a busy month with a variety of good and bad events, which pretty well sums up life in general, doesn’t it? We ended March and began April with a trip to Daytona Beach for our 18th wedding anniversary. But we got a hint of what April might bring when we had to rush […]

A Wonderful Natal Day

Wednesday , 2, July 2014 Comments Off on A Wonderful Natal Day

I’m not much on celebrating or even acknowledging my birthday, but I DO have to say that today was pretty much a great day, all in all. I received many marvelous messages, emails, phone calls, cards and gifts from family and friends, and am grateful for each one. Enjoyed some nice meals, some of them […]

The Sullivans

Last Thursday night our friends, Kirk and Laura, stopped by to visit before their flight out the next day. They brought a chocolate fudge cake from The Dessert Lady shop in Dr. Phillips and good gawd was it fantastic! As we visited, it occurred to me that we did not have a photo of them […]

A friend of mine invented a pretty cool thing a few years back called “PillowFix” and when he recently shared with me the happy news that it will be appearing in the April edition of SkyMall (you know, the shopping magazine in the seatback of almost every major airline in the U.S.), it occurred to […]

Yak & Yeti and Animal Kingdom

What a wonderful time Cindy and I had with our good friends Kirk and Laura yesterday out at the Disney Animal Kingdom! CIndy and I had not been to Animal Kingdom in at least 4 ½ years, so it was nice to revisit one of our favorite Disney parks. We arrived at the front gate […]

Walk The Dinosaur!

Saturday , 22, March 2014 Comments Off on Walk The Dinosaur!

We spent today at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (photos coming later), and I always love going over to DinoLand and hearing them play songs like R.E.M.’s “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” and this one that I posted the video of back in November of last year.  

Today is the (mumble mumble) birthday of my friend Denise. I’m fortunate to be in Orlando and not far from her geographically, so we were able to meet for lunch today at one of her favorite places and spend a couple of hours catching up. As I mentioned to her during lunch, I’m also fortunate […]

The Gift Of Memories

Saturday , 18, January 2014 Comments Off on The Gift Of Memories

When I walked into the kitchen yesterday morning, the first thing my mother-in-law said to me was not the usual, “Good morning” or “How are you this morning, dear?” No, instead she greeted me with, “Jeff, I’d forgotten that you used to have darker hair.” That’s because she was looking through an album of photographs, […]
