Drifting Along

Home for a few days, being Mother’s day weekend and all. I’d seen the stories about the wild fires in south Georgia for a good while now but

Somewhat on the Awake Side

Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers rolled through town Tuesday night. As always, the concert was incredible. I saw friends from past shows, met more fans, and

Techy Weekend

I had planned to go down and see some art at the Dogwood Festival this weekend as I have the past couple of years.  However, the weather was just plain unappealing and I had no real desire to get out. Last week I started … Read More

R E L I E F

So, I saw the doctor today.  Not my regular doctor who is sick but another in his practice.  I was telling my Mom last night (appointment was yesterday but rescheduled because doctor was out) that I was kind of glad that I was seeing … Read More

I Was Really There

Car back! Still without a decent computer, but at least I can cart my butt around again. Baby steps, people, baby steps… Without my laptop, I haven’t really looked at these in detail, but just skimming them gave me the sensation I was about … Read More

Skye’s The Limit

Yesterday was an entire day just on the Isle of Skye. The weather was decent, not perfect but good. Some occasional mist but really there was some sun, and it is Scotland in winter, so will not complain. Since we were spending another night … Read More

November Already?

Busyish Saturday once I finally started moving.  I wasn’t really up and about until close to noon.  I had this grand plan to get up early and go get my emissions done and also get an oil change and the transmission fluid changed.  Maintenance … Read More

How I Spent My Day

So, I guess if you don’t stroke your own ego, who will? I did go down to the My Atlanta photo show in Piedmont Park today and posted four of my Atlanta shots from between now and spring. All of them are featured in … Read More

And The Winner Is…

Okay, I waffled a million ways from Sunday about going to Egypt around New Years. But of course, after I thought about it two days, the airfare was up over $300 more than it was when I first looked. And maybe alone not enough … Read More

California or Bust

As it’s almost 11pm and I’ve plans to get up ridiculously early to meet Aaron and June, this installment will be necessarily short. For those not in the know, I’m out in San Jose for a business meeting on Monday that I’m thankfully able … Read More

Another Day in Virginia

Wow, it’s quiet tonight; I mean needle-hit-the-floor-and-echoes quiet. I didn’t realize the level of noise here until tonight. You see, the same day I arrived here, a bus load of high school students descended as well. Every room around me was filled with them. … Read More

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing….

Long day… This morning, I managed to crunch my universal remote control. Mind you, this wasn’t a cheapy one, but one that I had bought a few years ago that could learn from other remotes and could record macros so that I didn’t have … Read More

Paint & Hobo Dreams

I did manage to get some trim painting done. Of course, half-way through, the phone rings. I reach for the upstairs cordless (yes, I’m so anal the little electronic message on it says “upstairs”) only to discover that it says “place on cradle. Oops, … Read More

Aimless Chatter

So, the painting of my hall and stairwell continues. I’m going from a mossy green to a stark white, so this is not exactly a one coat thing. I liked the green but just too dark for a windowless area with average height ceilings … Read More

Farewell Red

Last weekend was my first trip home since being in Rome. It wasn’t just a pleasure visit, I had to see my dentist for some ongoing dental work. I had to have some bone removed that’s affecting my bite. A couple more visits before … Read More

Last of the Roman Holidays

I went to bed reasonably early last night after finishing a book and recharging my phone (I’m a bit afraid to leave it plugged in while asleep on foreign currents). still, when I went to bed, my other two room-mates were not there. I … Read More

To Capri And Back Again

What a day! This morning we had to drop off clothes for Brandy to get washed (her bag was still MIA this morning). Afterwards, by here for breakfast and a little internet time before heading out. We went by the room to pick up … Read More

By The Skin of our teeth

Where to start? I’ll save some suspense and first describe where I am because this alone is a unique experience. The only night time internet spot in Sorrento as far as we can tell is a club. We laughed last night when we saw … Read More

And Now For The Unexpected

Well, I guess adventure is fun. In the future, when we talk of this, I will refer to this as an opportunity to spend another day in Roma. I got everything packed up last night and thought I was doing pretty darn well. All … Read More

Being Sick Ain’t No Fun

I started feeling kinda poorly the end of last week, scratchy throat, sniffles – the usual. Was hoping allergies. Went home for an early rendition of Dad’s birthday (which is actually this coming Friday). With luck the folks won’t look back on the visit … Read More
