I learned some fascinating things about my grandmother while spending time with my mom on Mother's Day. First of all, there are several photos I remember growing up that always looked a little unusual to me, in that, while they were in color, they didn't seem to be like other color photos that I'd seen.
I always make fun of Dave Spencer anytime he blogs about gout, his colonoscopy or any other ailment that big hypochondriac thinks he has. But today, I am having surgery to repair an inguinal hernia. Now, I am not going to lie. I am a horrible patient. I got this thing a year ago when I flew to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise. Apparently my suitcase weighed about 400 pounds and it caused all my man parts to rupture. LOL! I was trying to live with it, but the pain has gotten out of control and today I am doing something about it. And it goes a little something like this . . .
As I continue my stroll down memory lane, I guess it's only fair to clarify the phrase "brush with greatness." I've always used it to describe accidental encounters with famous people. But why not also include deliberate ones, as well.
I have discovered an enormous amount of photos featuring myself and a number of country music stars. So, I've decided to share them with you. And because of the amount of pictures and stories that go with them, I'll break it up into a couple 0f installments.
Last weekend, the City of Owensboro unveiled the all-new Smothers Park downtown! And thousands of people flocked to Veteran's Boulevard to check out the new riverfront at Friday After Five and Saturday during the Owensboro Air Show. Dave Spencer and I were there overgrand-opening weekend as well, broadcasting live and chatting with folks about the exciting downtown improvements. But, it didn't take us long standing in the cool new playground at Smothers Park to realize we wanted in on the action too. And, after watching some little kids fly out of one slide in particular, we knew it was on!
Completely by accident, our digital manager--Ashley, Chad, and myself were all in close proximity to one another in the lobby today. To say that what you're seeing below was noticeable would be a glaring understatement.
When I pulled up to the former Masonville Elementary School--now Beacon Central High School--it struck me, immediately, how small it seemed. THIS was the cavernous building I walked into for the first time nearly forty years ago?
What is the deal with Tuesdays, the insect world, and my face? Two weeks ago, some nondescript bug--I think it may have been a lightning bug--went straight up my nose! Now, I ask you, what, seriously, is the point in that?
After Monday's workout with Corey Gant at the Y, I was feeling terrific. I always do after a workout. It's just that I hadn't worked out like that in a few years. Well, yesterday and today, I've been reminded what it's like when you get back into a workout routine, especially one like that.
