Living with RAD

I have to admit, I was having a real problem deciding how I wanted to start this story. I could have said that I am a man that now carries a purse, but my girlfriend laughed and said that was not true. Okay, maybe it is not a purse, per se, but it might as well be. I do not really have a problem with it, as I volunteered to do so, but it is a recent development in my life. There have been several major changes in my life since October, and carrying around a “purse” is but a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. But like I said, I am okay with it. If I am going to live with RA, and I am, there are going to be some changes around here.

Tanya's smile

The Eternal Smile

I know before you started reading this you had to have noticed the lovely young lady pictured above. One might look at the photo, see the smile and immediately think this appears to be a very happy person. A closer look at the eyes reveals that while this person appears happy, there is also a tiredness that can not be hidden by makeup. Only a large pair of sunglasses can hide this.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band at Staples Center

I had the opportunity to see Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band at Staples Center last night. It was a great concert. I have been a Bob Seger fan since Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man, which was around 1969. I have seen close to 100 live acts, but for some reason I never made it to a Seger concert. To say that I was looking forward to last night would be an understatement.

The song I was looking forward to hearing performed live was Turn the Page. He waited until almost the end to play it, so I was getting a little anxious when he started playing songs by Little Richard and Tina Turner. However, he played the songs I wanted to hear and came back for two encores, so it was a great night as far as I was concerned. Continue reading

Christmas Dinner 2011

After our morning motorcycle ride, Tanya and I headed home to prepare to go to my dad’s for Christmas dinner. Tanya fixed her famous strawberry-pecan summer salad and I picked up a few bottles of wine from my Sort This Out Cellars stash. We then packed the car, loaded up the dogs and headed to my dad’s.

Besides a couple brothers and a sister, there were my dad’s friends and friends of friends. I guess there were close to 20 people by the time all was said and done. As you can tell by the photos, we had a wide variety of food and drink and there were plenty of smiles to go around. Continue reading
