Fire and Fury

What if fire hydrants were small robots from an alien planet? What if they have been dormant for years just waiting for the code words "FIRE and FURY" to activate them?

Russia, Russia, Russia

All I see or hear on the news is "Russia, Russia, Russia." I just wish they would change it up every now and then.

Just got back from a sneak-peek of “Dunkirk.” Amazing movie. Incredibly well done. Riveting. For those of you who like super hero movies, I suggest you watch “Dunkirk” to see what real super heroes are made of. After all, it’s easy to have courage if you have a super power … but it’s something unbelievably special to see the courage displayed by ordinary men and women in a battle of life and death. If you get a chance, go see “Dunkirk.”

Stand back!

And so ... they finally meet. I just hope it doesn't turn into a pissing match.

Radio Legends

This is my old Ross radio that was my faithful companion while in high school. During the day, I would listen to WLS in Chicago with Larry Lujack (Unlce Lar), Tommy Edwards (Lil’ Snot-nose Tommy), Chuck Buell, Ron Riley and Art Roberts. At night, I would turn the dial to KMOX in St. Louis to listen to Jack Buck and Harry Caray as they so colorfully brought the Cardinals to life for me. These men taught me more about how to have fun and be successful in radio than any course I took or book I studied. Thanks guys!

I'm just the guy with the girl everybody wants to know

“Being a high school class clown with nerd-like tendencies, it was far beyond my comprehension that I would someday be married to the most beautiful and wonderful woman in the world. But, I get ahead of myself. Back to high school where I was a girl-shy, Clearasil-using, bespectacled young lad who believed that the girls I liked would only be attracted to the team sports heroes and “cool” guys. So, I avoided eye contact with the girls … awkwardly stared at them from a distance … and attempted to make them laugh when I could muster up enough courage to actually open my mouth to utter a few words. Needless to say, I didn’t ask anyone to the prom (in fear of rejection) … and, during the two school dances I did attend, stood motionless against the gym wall along with the other SSFC members. (Scared Silly of Females Club)

Fast forward to May 18, 1996. As I stood at the alter holding hands with Janet while gazing into her sparkling brown eyes, I silently counted my blessings and resisted with all of my willpower the urge to run through the church giving high-fives to all of my friends while shouting “Can you believe that this incredibly beautiful, talented and loving woman is marrying me?!” My mind swirled and the sound of angelic singing brought me back to the alter. It was Janet singing to me and ME only … “Grow Old with Me.”

Here it is 21 years later and I still feel like racing down the street giving out high-fives and telling anyone who will listen … “I am married to the most marvelous, gifted, loving, caring, stunning woman in the world!”

Happy 21st Anniversary Janet! I love you more and more each passing day.
