The road to nowhere I’m about to head off to another adventure. In 3 weeks, I’ll be heading for the vacation Mecca, known as McCook, NE. Tony’s going to school there. I wonder if could have picked a more out of the way place. I wonder … As he will be out in the wilds of Nebraska, I wanted him to have his car with him. I’ve decided to drive with him and fly back. In this way, he doesn’t…

Justin Lester – 66 KG – Greco-Roman Wresting – Image copyright KnoxNews This is a photo of nephew, Justin Lester. Tomorrow he is wrestling the Olympics. It has been, truly, his life-long dream to wrestle in the olympics. He was born in 1983, about a year before I left Akron, OH.

A lush, but fragile meadow at an altitude of 8,516 feet The mere mention of the words Palm Springs put images into my mind of palm trees, cool waters, and a relaxing atmosphere. Not! The high for this week calls for 108 every day! Palm Springs is about 30 minutes down the road from where I’m staying in Yucca Valley, CA. As I was out this way, Bill McDonald, another California blogger and visitor to my blog, and I decided…
