All in the Game

Mel had surgery today. He fell while playing basketball and broke his wrist. I should have known immediately that it was broken by the eerily calm voice he had when he called me. By the second call, he thought it was broken. By the third call (in three minutes), I knew it was broken. I […]

Winter Rears Its Ugly Head in My Head

A week go today I woke up in Vegas. I had a great weekend there and then I got home to reality. Which is usually what happens when you go anywhere that is not your usual daily routine. It was cold-ish in Vegas, but only in the morning. Other than that, the weather was perfect […]
