It’s Time, Time, Time…..

We all get to “Time Travel” one hour into the future, well, it’s not really time travel, but, we do “Spring Forward” and lose an hour until next Fall (huh?)….. ¬†What a pain, resetting all your clocks, including that uncooperative internal body clock – that’s the one that gives me the most trouble….. A little […]

Chicago Blues…..

“Just a White Boy lost in the Blues” (John Mayall) – Chicago style, that is!…. Having a great time in the Windy City, takin’ in the sights and especially the Blues Sounds…..

Now I hear that he’s in Venice, Italy – Soon to be headed for Munich, Germany….. Has our Super-Tech turned […]

United Airlines, You Chap My Hide

All seemed normal: my flight to Denver made it on time. My flight to OKC was on time according to the board. Then an announcement that our flight was going to contain passengers destined for Tulsa AND we were actually going to stop in Tulsa! My 1-stop trip to OKC now turned to a 2-stop […]

MR NW Surprise Inspection

It’s That Time Again….

Yep, it’s yearly inspection time for the Great Northwest Seattle HQ…… After a short vacation in Portland (01OCT-04OCT), I’ll then be heading for Seattle (05OCT-11OCT) to conduct a surprise inspection on Jektown and various unsuspecting MR community members….. You say, “How can it be a surprise inspection if I’m Posting the fact that I’m on […]

It was 40 years ago today…..

Young Neil took a small step to play…… On Earth’s moon so far away….. Back again in 2020, so they say….. I hope I’ll be around that day…… I can say that I got to see the whole thing unfold on a ungainly big box of a TV with a small screen (Television had only […]
