distance from home

I left class late Wednesday night and headed home. I hadn't eaten anything that day and I knew that there was nothing but cold cereal at home. There are few choices at 11:30 p.m. and so I pulled into the Waffle House for a late night breakfast. The only thing I could thing of while I was sitting there was my daughter Katie. Katie loves Waffle House. I looked at the empty seat across from me and saw her smiling there. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt what she would've order if she were actually there. Waffle House is a big treat for her and I don't go there much. Katie would have ordered the Big House Burger with hash browns cooked with onions, and a Coke. I miss her like I do the rest of my phantom family. I knew that she would have loved being there late at night talking with her dad about random things.

Gina often waits up for me. She shouldn't because her days are very full. I arrive long after the girls are in bed. Last night, Thursday, Gina had waited up for me. We talked for about thirty minutes - catching up on each other's day. He eyes were red and she was so sleepy - but she knows that if we don't see each other then - we won't see each other that day.

I see Kelsey every midnight - when I wake her up to pee. I'll rouse her, hold her hand down the dark hall and lead her to the toilet. She will wake enough to do her business and wash her hands - often giving her daddy a sleepy smile - eyes barely open. I do have about thirty minutes each weekday to see Katie and Kelsey. I pick them up from school and drive to drop them at the office. It's about a fifteen minute drive. We catch up on their school life and then off I go to my school life.

I miss my family. I've been a little disheartened this week. I can tell by Gina's voice over the phone that she too is a little weary of this. It's a hard time. She called while I was making this blog entry and it was good to hear her voice. We talked about our different worlds that we live apart. When she's at home - I am away - when I am away - she is at home.

I miss my family.

Tonight we'll all be together - driving from Trunk or Treats to Trunk or Treats. I won't be their missing Daddy tonight. I'll enjoy every moment of the evening with them as a whole family. Tomorrow I'll be downtown giving chair massages. I'll will then be back with my family tomorrow night and throughout Sunday. I look forward to this evening - to the weekend. I've got a lot of studying to do - but I'm making time for family this weekend.

doctor my orbitals

note to self:
Don't forget to study for Kinesiology test today on Jackson Browne muscles anterior/posterior. It's the test that I've had a hard time getting to due to all the family stuff I've been having to deal with these past four days. Sunday I made time to make flash cards of muscle types, characteristics, functions, etc. Yesterday I had SOME time to actually use the flash cards. Today I will read over the PowerPoint presentation and see if I've left anything out of the flash cards. Oh - I also need to learn all the freak'n muscles in the body (and where they are) before tonight!

Muscles include:
Anterior- Frontalis, Platysma, Deltoid, Pectoralis major, Pectoralis minor, Sternocleidomastoid, Biceps brachii, Coracobrachialis, Brachialis, Brachioradialis, Flexor Digitorum, Pronator teres, Flexors of the forearm, External oblique, Rectus abdominis, Transverse abdominis, Adductors, Sartorius, Rectus femoris, Vastus medialis, Vastus intermedus, Vastus lateralis, Peroneus longus, and Tibialis anterior

Posterior - Temporalis, Splenius capitis, Levator scapula, Supraspinatus, Rhomboid major and minor, Infraspinatus, Teres minor, Teres major, Erector spinae group, Serratus posterior inferior, Long muscles of the thumb, Gluteus medius, Gluteus minimus, Glueteus maximus (played by Russell Crowe), Piriformis, Semimembranosus, Plantarsis, Popliteus, Soleus, Trapezius, Deltoid, Triceps brachi (it'such the antagonist) Latissimus dorsi, Extensors of the forearm, Illiotibial tract, Bicepts femoris, Semitendinosus, Gastrocnemius.

There you go - that's a list of the muscles that I need to acquaint myself with more before tonight. Sorry to have pulled you in on my study. I made a 94 on the A&P test. I got the big questions but missed a few of the little guys. Oh well - not perfect. The teacher was most merciful and let us get half credit if we went back and filled in the correct answer. That should bump the grade up to a higher A. I am not sure about this test tonight. I've got much of the day to study - and am doing just that. Hopefully the Kinesiology teacher will give us a "name bank" for the muscles. I can't count on it. He didn't for our skeletal test a few weeks ago. Got to pour over it all today and hope for enough recall tonight to pass this thing.

I've got to close for now. For those who read this blog - offer up a prayer. I've got to saturate before using my brain tonight.

one to ten

Cindy gave Brook and me and early Christmas present last Friday night. She gave us tickets to see Jackson Browne in concert down at the Alabama Theater. It was a great evening. Brook and I drove down to B'ham and had plenty of time before and after to catch up on life. We don't get much time to talk these days (as I don't with anyone) and it was Cindy's idea for us to have some brother time. Good idea! The concert was great too- even in spite of the Obama worship service at the end of the evening. Nevertheless, Jackson was great - playing our old favorites, songs the band likes to play, and song of his new album. Thank you Cindy!!!

I had to get up real early Saturday morning for massage clinic. We worked ten hours - six clients. Even though we have thirty minutes between each client - that time is taken up by changing out sheets, refreshing the area, and doing S.O.A.P notes. Maybe I'll buy a little more of my in between time back as I get faster at doing the S.O.A.P notes. I enjoyed giving each massage. I was wiped out at the end of the day. I better get used to it.
I had not eaten all day due to the gall bladder removal many years ago. I loaded up on vitamins before heading of Saturday morning. I looked forward to the evening meal. Gina and I hooked up after I left GSCC and we went to Western Sizzlin. I was disappointed by the buffet. I won't be eating there for anything other than breakfasts from here out. Almost everything I went up to get tasted like frozen food or nasty. The catfish was good though. I don't like spending money for nasty.

Western Sizzlin (Rainbow City) did a great job with the renovation - heck - even the bathrooms are clean for a change. The waitress's are always nice - service is great. Food quality though - if given a rating from 1 - 10. I'd have to give them a 2. I was so disappointed I guess because I was so hungry going in. I could've gone to McDonalds and eaten mediocre for less money. Anyone that knows me knows that I don't care for McDonalds.

I get the feeling that it's a Western Sizzlin problem as a whole. A few years ago Gina and I took were in Oxford, AL and took the girls to Western Sizzlin there. I had already been to the bar when Gina came to me and told me not to start eating. She said that while at the bar - she and Katie spotted a roach crawling out of the mash potatoes. Ech! The management gave us our money back and we left. That Western Sizzlin got a zero!

Western Sizzlin here in Rainbow City seems to be cleaner than it used to be and the people there are friendly. They have a real good breakfast on weekends. I'll give them that. Ryan's has a good weekend breakfast too. Ryan's offers better food - not great food mind you - but definitely better. I'll give them a 7 in taste. I sure wish we had a Golden Corral. They have the best buffet I've ever been to. I've been to several locations down in Birmingham and their food is consistently tasty. Sometime when your stomach is grumbling and you're in B'ham - go to the Golden Corral - it's what Western Sizzlin & Ryan's want to be when they grow up. Golden Corral gets a 10.

FYI. If you're interested in a very good - very tasty sandwich - go order the M5 sandwich at Pasghetti's in Rainbow City. Most people that go there have big Italiab meals in mind. Their sandwiches are good too - the M5 though is my favorite - yes - a 10!

I came home last night and died early. I woke up late Sunday morning. My aches from last night are finally gone. The family has spent most of the day downstairs together. I've had a constant load of wash going. I've got to turn my attention on an upcoming test Tuesday night. I haven't had the time and energy to study. I better get to it.

I drove Gina to Atlanta Friday night for a lymphedema conference. We stayed over and I killed time driving around until she was through at 5:30. Gina wanted to take off early Saturday morning and come back that evening. The traffic in that town is terrible and I dreaded her making a venture like that by herself.

I have never changed my feelings toward Atlanta. I can't stand it. I really can't.  Whenever there, I want to get in and get out.  I realize there's all kinds of things to do there and the city never sleeps - but it's simply not my cup of tea.  I lived there for a few years while attending Art Institute of Atlanta back in the late eighties. The only time I didn't mind driving around Atlanta was during the evenings - when the traffic wasn't as hectic.

The roads are crazy in that town and every time I go back - it seems like the city picks up the highways and moves them around. While driving around today, I marveled at how many people lived in that town. There are almost as many people living in Atlanta than there are ants living in my back yard. So many people walking and driving to and fro, enjoying city life. It's simply not in my blood.

While killing time, I walked around Lenox Square Mall and ventured into one store. The mall hasn't changed much in these past twenty years. The Ruby Tuesday's is no longer there. That's where Dad and Mom would take me when they came to visit there art student son. The Ruby Tuesday's in Gadsden had not been built yet and Dad really took an immediate liking to it the first time I took him there.  It became the place we'd always go to when they drove out.

Strange being visited by ghosts in places that I wasn't looking for them.

The Phipp's Plaza is an upscale mall that is surreal to visit. It's so ritzy to walk through that it feels like walking aboard the Titanic. It's the prettiest mall I've ever been in - but again - I didn't venture in any stores. I was just trying to kill time until Gina was finished with her classes.

When I first moved to Atlanta - all the students were gathered in a Phipp's Plaza movie auditorium for a few hours of orientation. Every day we were allowed to use the parking deck there and lug our our heavy portfolio with drawing board and design tools to the institute about three blocks away. I don't know where the school is - it's moved somewhere else...or maybe the road moved.  Who knows.

I made some friends there in Atlanta but you can keep the place.  I really don't care to go back. If I do - I prefer not having to drive or navigate it. The only driving tip I can give you is if you get lost - just keep heading in one direction.  You'll eventually run into the perimeter.  I got lost today trying to get out. It took me an hour to find a 1-85 on ramp. Did I say that I hate Atlanta.

I will tell you that I do like the Wingate Inn chain. I wished that we had the money to stay there two nights. That way I could have dropped Gina off for at Piedmont Hospital for the meeting and then go back to the hotel to hide there for the rest of the day.  That's what I got to do last year. I don't care about being nomad in Atlanta for five hours.

You can't really just pull of the road and check out a store. You have to pay five dollars parking almost every time you stop you car. I drove around until I was fed up with the road blocks / construction work / and a wreck on Peachtree Street. After a few hours of nomading - I decided to go to the parking deck at the hospital and took a long nap.

everything you hold sacred

Here's a very impressive video from the Catholic church.

raw deal

Politicians like to blame big business, big oil, and wall street for all our present woes. For some mysterious reason - they rarely point to themselves. Big government is the real thorn in our sides. Trying to make a business works takes a lot of time, energy and money. We do all the milking - government gets the cream. Here we are trying to eke out a living - while being taxed, taxed, and taxed in the process. Like Reagan said, "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem." The best thing government can do is get the hell out of our way."

The way things stand today, government is in direct opposition to small business. The job of government today is to confiscate as much of our capital as possible. Our current financial crisis leads directly to Washington - specifically to the doorstep of the Democrats. Just look what their social engineering / market manipulations have brought us - problems! Just give them enough rope and they will hang us all.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
-Ronald Reagan

Sorry Hussein - sorry Joe - but being gang raped by the U.S. Government every quarter isn't my idea of being patriotic. I simply can't wait for the next tea party.

something WE can do!

I've got the test behind me this week and I have been thinking of a whole new grading system for high learning institutes everywhere. There was a young student that walked out of class early on in one of the tests this week. This is an unfortunate situation because this person said prior to fellow students that he/she didn't have the time to study. This poor time-destitute student had complained of the same problem just prior to the last big test a few weeks ago. There was such an upset look upon his/her face - more of disbelief - as he/she exited the classroom. I knew that that person had not given the much required time and attention needed to pass such challenging test. It is so sad - I've been thinking about that student since he/she exited the classroom. What can WE do?

Frankly I don't think it's fair that some of the students in that class failed - yet again. There must be something that WE can do to spread some fairness in order to give those who don't study a leg up in life. After hearing the wisdom of what Obama said to Joe the Plumber a few days ago - I believe I now have the solution. Let's begin to apply the little messiah's kind of great thinking to test scores! There are some in class who have worked to earn high test scores. It wasn't easy - it's taking every available scrap of time and do what ever it takes to learn the material. It's just not fair. I believe the teachers need to take Obama's strategy for spreading wealth and apply it to spreading wisdom. I believe that teachers need to skim a fair amount of grade points from the greedy grade-rich students (those making and hording all the high grades) and re-distribute the scores in order to make everything FAIR!

What do you think?
Surely we could all sacrifice an A and B for a mid to low C - so that we can pull up the low scores of those that have had it so hard in life - for those with all the excuses - for those who have chosen not to put forth the effort for a good grade. I think this kind of Democrat thinking - if initiated would change the education system as we know it.

Thank you Obama. Thank you Democrats. Thank you government for taking so much from WE THE PEOPLE- thank you for taking from us and forcing so much of your ideas of fairness into our lives. Thank you for spreading and promising to continue to spread the misery and equality for all.

We will endeavor to persevere and succeed in spite of all your great wisdom and generosity.

messiah and the plumber

United Socialist States of America folks.

week of testing

Tonight we had a comprehensive test in LAB 101. I passed the validation tonight. I gave one of the instructors a massage. I felt pretty confident about it and didn't make as high as I would have liked but I am just a novice at giving massages. I have lots of Clinic time ahead to get better at it. I feel I do a great job for where I am - with plenty room for improvement. Clinic starts this week. We had a test tonight to boot. It was a difficult test because it was difficult to study for it. Tests in that class always are. I have to do the best I can do and toss the dice.
Tuesday night test is yet another mammoth Anatomy & Physiology test. It's the hardest class of all because of all the new terms and concepts to grasp. You may recall that I Aced the first test and this one is a little bigger. Having already had an A&P test, I know a little better how to study for it. The hardest part is getting the features/characteristics all muddled in my head. I've got tomorrow morning and afternoon to try to get things sorted out in my brain. I also need to hone the two big discussion questions. Pray for me.

Katie was sick today - some kind of flu bug. Gina said that she still had a fever when she went to bed. I guess she'll be staying home tomorrow.

As soon as I get tomorrow out of the way, I will need to start studying for the Kinesiology test for Wednesday. The test will be on Joints. I made the note card from the PowerPoint notes but haven't studied beyond that. The A&P test is the Tsunami. I need to weather through that storm before I can wrap my mind around the Kinesiology test. I know it's cutting it close - but that is all I can do. Pray for me.
I spent some time cleaning house this weekend - between the studying. The house is looking better. I can't believe all the laundry I had to do Friday through Sunday. I kept washing and folding and it never seemed to end. It's amazing what three girls can go through in the matter of a week. TOWELS! Why do they use up so many freaking TOWELS? We've got a lot of towels and they seem to use the whole closet full of them withing four days - wash fold wash fold wash fold and then do it again.

I am fried from the test tonight. I told Gina to go to bed. I am just too tired and need time to decompress. Blogging is often good therapy.

tommy's blog 10/10/08

Tommy Puckett doesn't post much - but when he does it's worth the read. I am not going to relay to you what he's written but here's the link to his blog.

I got some studying in today toward the next big A&P test. I am not looking forward to it but I don't think it will be as stressful because I know what's coming. The teacher is kind enough to give us a study guide / list of the subjects, terms, and concepts we will need to know before stepping into his class Tuesday evening.

I have two more big tests both Monday and Wednesday evenings. Next week is a big week. I am going to put most of my attention toward the Tuesday test because it encompasses three chapters. Frankly I don't know what the Monday night test is going to encompass - we were told EVERYTHING SO FAR. I guess I am going to have to do that one a wing and a prayer. Our teacher on Wednesday night doesn't believe in study guides for test but the test is on one chapter and I do have his PowerPoint to review. I don't look forward to next week but I at least have this weekend to study, study, and study.

I will be starting clinic on the 16th. My busy life will be kicked up a notch. Clinic on Thursday evening and much of Saturday I'll be doing hands on Swedish massage from here on out. I already miss my family and they miss me. I look forward to December - when I'll have time to be with Gina and the girls.

We are all busy here. I don't ever recall life rolling at this speed before. We've been trying to dog-peddle through each day and I try to avoid looking around me. When I do - the news, the economy, the election, the taxes that swallow us whole. All we know to do is go about life and push forward - that's all we can do. Life goes on in spite of the fairness we are coldly dealt. We could really prosper without the help from the greed from Washington. The older I get the less I trust take that back. All trust left a long time ago.

I guess it's a good place to be - seeing how our trust should be in Him and not man.

i heard someone singing sweet and soulful

stay with me
zevon will
always come back around
always be playing
manning the keyboards
crackling beneath the needle
of my old turntable
endlessly repeating on the 8 track
always in rotation on the CD player
a long time personal favorite
coming back here
you'll hear him echoing
again and again
i will never tire of him

Thursday, October 9, 2008

my opening farewell

i will admit to you
in a careless moment of openess
i've had this long time crush
on that red headed woman
that can sing like only she can
belt out songs like no other woman
play that slide
like an old black blues-man
i admit
she turns my head
i've got a long time crush
on Bonnie

Gina knows

Obama, Ayers and ACORN

So I've turned the blog political these past few weeks. I guess it will remain so until the election is over. Stay with me until then. I'll sandwich non-political blogs between. It's just that there is so much going on behind the curtain and so little is being said about this new democrat messiah.

a dub to draw the comparison

this is a little creepy

obama youth sing

All children who's parents are Republicans - please leave the room. You are free to stay and participate - just don't tell your parents - they won't understand.

seriously folks - the obama youth

because of Obama?
Praise Obama!

good grief

Monday, October 6, 2008


The nice part about this weekend was that I didn't have to crack a book. With two test behind me this week (Monday/Lab, Wednesday/Kinesiology), I could actually relax a little bit. Poor Gina had taken on clients for all of Saturday afternoon. She had hurt her back lifting something with her Dad on Wednesday. She had back surgery a while back and the doctor told her not to do that kind of stuff. She was feeling a little better as Sunday afternoon rolled around.

I arrived at church late on Sunday. I nearly didn't go because I didn't leave the house until 10:30 - driving from where we live in Southside to church in Gadsden takes more than a minute or two. Church now starts at 10:30. Katie wanted to go so bad and so I went anyway. Katie loves God stuff. I am very proud of her. Anyway, Brook, Liz, Jamie Pickle, and Jimmy Henderson were well into their worship set. Brook & Liz's voices blend so nicely together. The whole team were tightly linked together - a great sound - a good moment. I am glad that I went.

I took my time coming home from church because Katie wanted to do something special - other than just driving straight home. It was such a fair weather day that I took the very long not so straight way home in the Superbeetle. I drove the Glencoe route and hunted roads with interesting curves and hills. There is a very steep hill that's out there that I wonder how many folks actually dare driving it. We did. Katie's eyes opened wide and she laughed as we went down it.

I drove a little off the beaten path in Southside. It's funny that when you've got a little car like that - you begin to keep your eye out for the little dirt roads and not really anxious to take the direct route. The VW is not just a car - it's a touringmobile.

Last night after spending the day washing piles of clothes, cooking, and cleaning - I told Gina that I was going to fade into the night. Gina didn't really want me to go but I told her that this might be my last chance to go to a drive-in this year. I didn't get away until 6:45 and the first feature started at 7:00. I knew that I was going to miss most of the first feature. I drove the bug down past Leesburg - toward the 411 Twin Drive-In. It is still my favorite drive-in. They keep the grounds mowed and clean of debris - as if you're sitting in some one's back yard watching a movie. I came in real late on EAGLE EYE - a Steven Spielberg action flick. I got to see the last half of it - the plot was so thin that there was no problem catching up or figuring out what I had missed.

The batteries in my jambox died early on in DEATH RACE. My VW radio doesn't work - so I sat there and borrowed the distant sound waves from a neighboring group of tailgaters a few rows back. Death Race is a remake of a Roger Corman movie, DEATH RACE 2000 . It starred David Carradine. Don't waste your time on the original. This remake is actually better than the original- which isn't a high hurdle to leap. The movie wasn't great but the night was so clear , and the stars were brilliant above me - and the weather was perfect!

I drove home at 11:00. The bug wasn't as much fun to drive home at night because there wasn't much scenery to see other than on coming cars with their high beams on. Driving home did remind me of coming home from the Rebel Drive-In in Chigger (Brooks old 66 bug). We went to a bunch of drive-in movies in that little red bug. Once Brook, Jerry & Joey Pullen and I went to see GRAND PRIX (1966) at the Rebel Drive-in in that little red bug. Brook would get so into the racing scenes that he'd occasionally grab the steering wheel and try to keep James Garner back on the tack.

The drive home also reminded me of when I had my first little 73 bug. I worked at Rodco (silk-screening place) and would often catch a double feature before driving home. It was a sweat shop job and I didn't want to just go home to wake up and go at it again. Instead, I'd catch a twin feature, eat dinner in the car (usually KFC meat & a biscuit). It was during one of those nights that I saw AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. That was a great movie to watch at a drive-in A LONE!!! It was such a great scarry movie to watch outdoors that I got the hell out of there right after it was over.

It was a nice weekend. I got to be with the wife, be with the kids, catch some flicks, catch up on cleaning and very little HOMEWORK!!!! In a few weeks I will be starting CLINICS on Thursday and Saturdays. The rest of the year is going to be hectic.

why we laugh

* * * * Nope - AN AMERICAN CAROL isn't a great comedy but I liked it. It's strange sitting in a movie theater where the message is so pro-American - pro-troops! The perspective is so very conservative and right on! In a sense, it's kind of like the old WWII American propaganda film WHY WE FIGHT - that is if Frank Capra had cast the Three Stooges to have a role.

I've got a feeling that this movie isn't going to go away. The movie is not a keep you in stitches comedy. It might though eventually gain a cult following because of the story. Don't get me wrong - It had it's funny moments - but it also a few poignant moments that caught me off guard. It's a silly movie that packs some serious punches.

Now if I lived in Hollywood and had a hand in the production of such a movie - I would have had the characters play the role a bit more seriously. Jon Voight played George Washington seriously and quite well. I think comedy is a dish best served cold. One of the reasons that Zucker's AIRPLANE! was such a hit was that he used actors like Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and Leslie Nielsen to play out the zany storyline. Keep in mind that Leslie was not known as the fumbling oaf - the comedian that he is known today (thanks to the Zucker Bros). AIRPLANE! took people by surprise because they used the serious leading men of the 1960/1970's to be the straight men of their own lines. If you remember that it was Robert Stack that played the no-nonsense Eliot Ness of television's THE UNTOUCHABLES. Peter Graves was the original Mr. Phelps of the television show MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE. Lloyd Bridges was Mike Nelson in SEA HUNT! So I think Zucker lost that punch somewhere along the way after making those Scary Movie sequels etc. Most of the stars in Airplane! played the role straight and serious. I think this movie would have been even better if more of the characters did the same - including Kevin Farley (the late Chris Farley's bro) who played the Michael Moore character - to the rolls of the terrorist who are trying to get him to make the Pro-Al-Qaeda movie. I think the explosions from the explosives should have been more realistic and damaging rather than the Benny Hill type treatment that was used.

It's a pretty good movie but could have been funnier as well as an effective message vehicle.

audacity of hope

American Carol this weekend

This election season Oliver Stone is releasing "W" and Bill Maher is coming out with his religion bashing movie called "Religulous". It's all too common around election season for us Reagan loving Americans to have to endure all the rebroadcastings of every dead Kennedy movie or dead Kennedy documentary ever made. On the big screen and little screen Hollywood wants us enundated with their left bent point of view.

Well, producer David Zucker, as well as other conservative actors have decided to come out of their Hollywood conservative closet and make a comedy spoofing Michael Moore and the rest of the looney left.

David Zucker you might recall is the right half of the infamous Zucker Brothers that brought us Airplane! and Police Squad. The preview looks pretty good - and I hope it's a funny comedy for a change. I don't know if Zucker will ever exceed Airplane!.

I don't know about you, but I'm going to see a comedy this weekend. I can probably predict ahead of time that this movie is going to be panned by movie reviewers. In a way, I'm sure all the cast involved are putting their necks on the line with this picture. It will be interesting to see the turn out.

What Caused Our Economic Crisis?

Here's a Cliff Notes version of what has happened to our economy. Again, we're not being told this in the vast wasteland.
