Looking Back

I was going to rant in this post.

Local radio stations have been playing Wham's 'Last Christmas' on a continual loop.

For God's sake!  It's been playing non-stop since October.

...the video is hysterical, though.

See, I love Christmas music.  I was looking back through all of my posts looking for a playlist of my favorites to reference.  I just knew I had one.

Couldn't find it.

But as I was looking for that, I found myself stopping to read some old posts.

Was that me?  Did I write that stuff? 

Are you kidding? It's unrecognizable.

Is that weird?

Have any of you had this experience or is it just me?

Just me you say?


Still...I feel like a stranger to myself.

...and for some reason, it makes me kinda sad.

A Text

I got a text from Big this morning.

All it said was, "You're the best you know that?"


I've had a smile on my face all day.

See, Big and I fight.  I mean really fight.  We have these huge verbal smack downs.  When we're done, we look at each other in amazement.  Where did that come from?  What was THAT all about?

At long last though we've found each other's hot buttons and agree not to punch them.


I texted him back and told him he wasn't so bad himself.

He's actually Pretty. Darned. Awesome!

A Yum Run

Finally, legalized 'shine in the Ozarks.

What's that?  You assumed that we've been able to buy good corn liquor all this time here in our fair hills?

Nope.  We had to come by our hooch the old fashioned way. the sink.

But this fine fella has found a way to distill a product that is far superior to garden variety back yard corn squeezin's.

And it's a great place to while away a cold winter afternoon.

Big Daddy and I know.  We've been there a time or 20.

A Little PR

Little isn't so little anymore.

He's an amazing young man.  As a senior in high school he has shown ambition, leadership, and compassion all while courting the most special of young women.

He has a mountainous goal for this summer.    There is little doubt he will make it to the top.

Phantom Regiment will be fortunate to have this awesome Tuba player in their brass line.

This is a taste of what he experienced last weekend in Rockford, Il.  We go back in three weeks for the next step.

Chicago here we come!
