Every once in a while you run across someone doing something that just inspires you, gives you initiative and makes you root for him and yourself.
This is the story of Alan Moore, a Viet Nam vet who went back to college and..... well I won't spoil it for you.....
It's Labor Day weekend and we have a couple of dangerous storms (one a hurricane) heading our way down here near the Gulf Coast. We never travel on holidays (unless it's to Germany) , so we're having guests over on Saturday for a holiday meal and some pickin' and grinnin'. It's been a long time since I've had someone to play guitar with and I'm looking forward to Bill and Suzette's visit very much.
After Irene and the fact that Lee is headed toward Louisiana makes me worry for those folks. They still haven't completely rebuilt from Katrina yet.
An Alzheimer's joke:
A doctor got a call from a elderly blonde woman, who screamed “Doc, get over here, I’m in a lot of pain!”
The doctor raced to the woman’s house and saw that her ears were both badly burned. The doctor treated the burns, then asked her how it had happened.
The woman said sheepishly, ”Well, I was ironing the clothes, when a friend of mine called me up. I was so dumb! Instead of reaching for the phone, I held the hot iron up to my left ear and burned it.”
“Oh,” said the doctor. “Then, how did you burn the RIGHT ear?’
“Well,” the woman replied, “I had to call YOU, didn’t I?”

Clumsy me. Bumping into doors, sides of tables... you name it and I've hit it, either with my foot or my side. It's not glasses - they're current. I think it's spatial disorientation. Sometimes I do it just walking from one place to another. I think that somehow my brain doesn't get the message to my right or left leg and I start to weave and sometimes almost fall.
People who see this think I'm drunk. Whatever. Why should I stop and explain? I do that enough, and I hate when that comes out of my mouth! It make me think I'm trying to get people to feel sorry for me, so many times I just say nothing at all.
