Aaaa shux. Take heed.

So I will be 55 next tuesday.
Last tuesday I learned I had prostate cancer.. last thursday in a consultation and after a lotta googlin , I learned my best option is surgery to remove the darn thing.
We are optomistic .
Bottom line, due to checkups and followups, we have a chance to get beyond this..
The finest health care system in the world cant work unless you give it a chance.. So guys.. get a checkup !

A New Year

I hope the world becomes a better place in 2009. So much strife, so much misery..makes one want to go write a sad song.

On the other hand, we had a baby in the house last night, first time in a way long time. The lil smile on her face this morning gives me hope .. and scares the heck outta me .. its a tuff, changing world she will have to navigate.. but I reckon thats a grandparents place.. take all the hugs and worry !

The look on Amya's face when I get to playin the Clarence is… Continue

Might as well !

Since Dan has made it so easy, I decided to write about stuff.

No particular stuff, just stuff I felt a need to say.

I believe that may be a tuff job, figuring out whats worth sayin, and what isnt.. so it may be awhile tween sayins.

That said, this thing Dan has created has… Continue
