Yesterday (Sun), we had our Xmas at G’s house. I received 4 Petra CDs from M&D (the ones I didn’t have!) and two nice ink pens in a padded case from Meemaw and a sturdy glass candy dish from Aunt Pat. M&D also gave me $100 off my car loan. I felt bad receiving that[…]
I worked until about 3pm, doing one story and more research for my year-end story, then went to MDZ’s trailer. Heather, Jason, Joshua and Mark were there, along with Shari, Bobby, Zach & Taryn. We had tacos for dinner, then went to see Lord of the Rings (at the Shawnee theater.) Mom and Dad stayed[…]
Worked doggedly today (got to work 45 minutes early); did 3 front page stories; then in the afternoon, I worked on combining Donny’s, Ryan’s, and my Christmas music stories into one story. (Karen later changed it into a more contiguous story.)
I had a minor tiff with the Sheriff’s Office today. I was trying to get some information about a story, and had trouble. The arrest report I got had only minimal information, so I called over there, asking for more information. Sharon Emmitt (who used to work for The Producer) told me she’d have Sheriff[…]
Worked quickly in the morning & got finished so I could go to the workshop with Donny, Ryan and Mike. Mike drove separately — the rest of us rode with Donny to Tulsa. The four of us ate at Olive Garden, then went to the Marriott Hotel on Lewis & 71st. Dr. Terry Clark &[…]
Seminole PD had plenty of arrests last night & so I had plenty to write about. Dealing with these police reports everyday, I’m starting to think that everyone in this county is either evil or stupid. Xmas party for work today — I met Ted Phillips — owner of the newspaper (son of Milt Phillips,[…]
Happy Birthday to Holly Susanne Leach, wherever you are! I had a decent day at work, after being awakened by a 2-minute tornado siren that went off for no reason. After work, I went to Wal-Mart and bought boxer shorts and weather stripping (hopefully to stop the cold drafts of air near my back door.)[…]
We had one or two days of cold & snow & ice a couple of weeks ago, then it warmed back up. It’s been in the 60s in the afternoons, 30s & 40s in the morning, and sunny. Finally, today, it turned cold again (maybe 40s?) and began raining in the afternoon. It misted most[…]
Spent most of the day working on Wesley’s Story and watching TV. Received the usual emails from Charli (jokes & silly stories). Practiced guitar — not learning a WHOLE lot, but keeping what I know so far.
I’ve been thinking about my story (Wesley’s story). I want “Jef”, etc., to find “love”. But how can I write about love when I don’t know love? Have I ever known love? It should be obvious by now that I love my family. And I loved Harry the dog. I “love” music, and other things.[…]
It would appear that I all I have done lately is dream. This is not the case. It’s just that I haven’t been able to do much writing in the last couple of days/weeks. Even now, it is after 10:00pm, and I’m gonna have to rush this entry.
