Soul food?

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I am in fact sick.  Here’s the rub:  I’m not sure how I’m sick.  I was pretty sure it was a cold last night.  I was pretty sure it was a cold this morning.  I’m starting to think it might be allergies.  Really really bad allergies.  My allergies are never this bad though, and it’s [...]

It’s Tuesday, that’s all

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I think I’m getting a cold.  This must not occur.
I’m going to try and do my tried and true remedy.  I’m afraid it won’t work, because I think this has been coming on for a few days and I didn’t pick up on the signs soon enough.
But on a happier note, I watched a new [...]

Graffiti Walk

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

It was another lovely day in Austin, and I just couldn’t ignore it any more.  When I got off work, I skipped the gym and headed straight home.  A quick change in to my shorts and sandals and I headed out for a walk through the greenbelt.

This is one of the things I like about [...]

Choices made

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

But that was just a dream
And this is real life
And it’s a big, sweet, life.
I’m incredibly torn this afternoon.
I can literally feel the pull of the greenbelt near our home, like Mother Nature’s own tractor beam attempting to latch on to my soul and make me hike.  Today is even more beautiful than yesterday; the [...]

I’m not too old to go to Kids Club!

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

This year’s gonna be the best year ever
The best year ever just wait and see
For about 45 minutes
Then watch it sink into the sea
Good things will happen, Bad things will happen
And very often I won’t know the difference at all.
The words of Jon Dee Graham once again speaking perfectly to where I’m at today.  Or [...]

This is me being sorry

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

We all knew it was just a matter of time.  At least I knew it was just a matter of time.  Knowing me as some of you know me, you should have known.  And even if you don’t know me, well… ok, I guess if you’re new here, you get a pass.  You couldn’t have [...]

What’s a Meta for?

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (No Respond)

I’m trying very hard not to stress out tonight, but it’s not easy.  The fate of the world rests on my shoulders.
It’s not really the fate of the world.  It is the fate of myself and 9 other people, some of whom are friends and some of whom are merely friends of friends.  And just [...]

Farewell, Mrs. Neff

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (5 Responds)

Sad news in my in-box today.  Hazel Neff, of San Angelo, Texas, passed away this weekend.  She was 95.
If you grew up in or near San Angelo, you probably have some idea of whom I am speaking.  Hazel, along with her late husband Roy, owned and operated Neff’s Amusement Park, the happiest place on the [...]

Another political rant

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (4 Responds)

I really didn’t want to do another political blog… ever.  But anyone who knows me well, and most people who know me a little, is aware that sometimes I have difficulty keeping my mouth shut.  This is one of those times.
If you disagree with the new Health Care bill, or I guess by now we [...]

There’s no Madonna reference in this blog

Posted by Mick under Uncategorized (1 Respond)

The problem with making a vow to blog every day is that you don’t necessarily have something to say every day.  Today is one of those days.
I could take the easy way out and give you some links, sites and items I’ve found recently that looked interesting to me.  I’ve done it before, and I’ll [...]
