The National Guard unit from Seminole was activated today, as Gov. Brad Henry mobilized 15,000 of the state’s brightest and best to assist with the disaster in Louisiana. The local Guardsmen will be leaving some time in the morning… They don’t actually get their orders until tonight. Also, the rear-view mirror in my car just[…]

Gas Price Hike

When Firefox begins behaving badly, I had no choice but to go back to my old favorite, K-Meleon, which I found about a year ago. Anyway… Am I the only one who crapped my pants when I saw gas prices today? Probably not. Everyone’s talking about it, and I hate to talk about what everyone’s[…]

Thanks again to everyone for the wealth of comments. Some of you I will see very soon… The Sasakwa folks at the game on Thursday, and then Marline on Saturday (YES!)… As for the others, we’ll get together at a later date (for instance, Cassie, you’d BETTER come visit us before you and the hubby[…]

Apparently, Kambri‘s boyfriend/client will be on Comedy Central tonight. So sad, but I don’t get that channel. Somebody watch it and tell me about it, okay?

For those of you who like “tweaking” Windows, and adding little applications just for fun, you may want to try “Power Menu.” But maybe not if you’re short on RAM or have an old Celeron processor, like me. With it, you can minimize any “window” to the system tray (instead of the taskbar), AND —[…]

Thank goodness. I think the hat situation is getting straightened out. Thanks, Kambri, for clarifying in your comment the things I didn’t say in my post. Anyway, I don’t look that good in a cowboy hat. Or a baseball cap, or any other kind of head covering. I’ll just go bareheaded if it’s all the[…]

Wow. It seems I caused a stir amidst my family without any intention, simply by posting an innocent picture on this blog. Several entries ago, there was a pic of Marline and I wearing cowboy hats. The explanation is that we were visiting one of my cousins in Edmond, whose young son was showing us[…]

I Feel Old

Wow. Now I feel old. :-) And yes, I did grab me a young, hot chick (isn’t that what all us old guys go for? LOL.) But when I’m 109 years old, she’ll be 100, so it’s not that much difference, right? Cassie, I really don’t know if John lives at home still… the last[…]

TO EMPTY ME Aug. 24, 2005 (7:35 p.m.) By Wil C. Fry Every day I’ve ever lived has led to this Forgiving myself and finding bliss The lessons learned are clearer now Since she found me; I don’t know how The long, low road on which I traveled Where every hope and dream unraveled Was[…]

XP

Well, I think I got this Windows XP thing figured out. I updated to the newer OS last night, and it’s been screwing with my head ever since. Finally, today on my lunch break, after a 30-minute call to India (or someplace) I am connected to the internet. Just barely, though. I only THOUGHT my[…]

Marline Has Left the Building

Today, I left Marline at the Will Rogers World Airport, where I found her. It was a sad occasion, since we’d clicked so well during her four quick days here, but a happy occasion, since she’s planning on returning in 12 days. We both appreciate all the well-wishes from our friends around the nation. As[…]

Vacation With Marline

Today: saw the OKC National Memorial. Very emotional. Sat and talked on one of the benches in the shade (it was 97 degrees.) Found a new way around OKC (“got lost”) and then took pics of Marline at the Okla. State capitol. Visited my cousin Holly in Edmond, where we had Baskin Robbins ice cream[…]

Vacation With Marline

Okay, day two of Marline’s visit is drawing to a close… Not really; it’s only 8 o’clock. :-) Things are going even better than could have been expected. Short chronology: Thursday (18th) 10:45 a.m. — Marline arrives at OKC’s Will Rogers World Airport; we meet in the luggage claim area. My camera clicks her twice[…]

Well, as expected, I can’t sleep. I’m supposed to be getting some Zs right now, so I can be at the airport in the morning to pick up Marline. But, here it is, approaching 1 a.m. (by the clock on my VCR), and still no sleep. Too jittery. All of this nervousness will seem like[…]

Less than 17 hours now… And at least eight of that is going to be sleep. I’m excited. Today, did some laundry, washed my car, and straightened up around the old homestead. I’m such a good housewife. :-) I had some really deep, introspective thoughts, but I can’t remember them right now. And it’s freaking[…]

Mark to Leave

Mark leaves later today (after a little sleep). We’ve played chess (I ended up winning the series, 11-8), Trivial Pursuit (Mark won all three games), Monopoly (Mark won, after three hours), and other stuff. We went shooting, explored the canyons, and watched several movies. Mark also helped me make a couple of videos for Marline[…]

Hey, Marline, I actually caught up to Mark in the chess score (5.5 to 5.5), but then he proceeded to whip me several consecutive times in Trivial Pursuit. That bastard has more useless information in his thick skull than than the CIA’s supercomputer. Went and saw “Four Brothers.” Enjoyed it. Good acting, good soundtrack, excellent[…]
