Air Florida Flight 90.

I took this same flight the summer before it's "deadly error".
CoastGuardGirl was visiting one of her boot camp buddies who was stationed in Tampa.
The best deal that I could get, after flying out of Salisbury, included a 3-hour layover @ National.
What to do, what to do?
Why hit the bar for some "time killers".
After about 6 beers, I boarded the "filthiest" plane that I ever flew in.
As soon as the wheels left the tarmac, I ordered "anything with Bourbon".
The next thing I knew, the stewardess was shaking me and telling me that we had landed.

By the way, the following tragedy is just one more (Reagan assassination attempt, Challenger and Columbia explosions, 9-11 etc.) that I can add to the list of "Why was I off work this day?".

I guess that a question mark is better than nothing


i used to be really shy. i kept my mouth shut and talked through my thoughts. it wasn't until before my 19th birthday that i spoke up. that really wasn't that long ago.

That guy in the back on the hollow body guitar reminds me so much of my brother.
It's uncanny.

Hey, Now!

I don't feel that I need to write a damn thing. If you all ain't got the message by now, then may the good lord bless you.

Back To Reality.

My mortgage company has received my app for a reduction in terms. I'm not sure how that will play out. But when you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose.
I'm at a crossroads today. Should I continue to seek, so I shall find or should I sit back and see what develops? I guess that I will just have to wait and see.

Mission complete.

"mission statement".

Four years ago I started this blog(by another name), as a letter to my daughter. I felt that I needed to reach out to her at that time, because I felt that I was about to die. Let me rephrase that; because I did not want to live any more. I guess that I just wanted to talk to her.

Three years ago my brother passed away, after a long illness. He really was the man behind the music. Being six years younger, I soaked up everything that I could from him.

Two years ago I had an "other-worldly" experience. It involved "spirits" and "premonitions" and a momentary "out of body experience". It came down to a moment of decision. Did this thing called "life" even exist? And if so, what was it's purpose? What was it's meaning?

I Can't Forget Why I'm Here.

My anniversary is approaching fast. I really want to write about it. I really want to write again. I will write again. I will will myself to write again. Stay tuned.

I know I will.

The promised land.

The rising.

Thanks, Tim!

"Big George".

I just got back from the services of an old friend in my hometown. Even though I had not seen George since I was a teenager, I always thought of him as "one of the good guys". Apparently from the turnout at the funeral home, I was not alone.
George was a few months older than me and he died from a heart attack. I was most touched by the courage and words of his only child; a daughter about the same age as my own. She spoke of the love and attention that her father showered on her and that he was always there for her, even after her parent's divorce. I've been there and I know that George, as I, showered her even more.
At the grave site, I spoke briefly with George's older brother. After introducing myself, I asked him one question. "Was he a Christian?" He replied, "Yes." I said, "That's good."

Slight refrain.

For Me.

For You.

here is a real good find, in my opinion:sneakin' sally.

not really much to say at the moment. things are not looking down with that semi-internet thing that i am pursuing. as i've said before...if you see a chance take it.
i put most of this stuff on facebook, but one of my favorite viewers is not on that network (at least to my knowledge?). he is the next best thing to my older brother: knows everything!

life is good.

finding so much good music from artists that i never bothered to listen to a few years ago. i think that a little bit of my brother's soul was left behind.:)
