It was a curious weekend. Tripod still did not fix the problem of limited capacity on my site.
On Saturday I placed a birthday message at Matthew's Place before heading to Block. We left early, and I spent
much of the rest of the weekend on the Block website. I picked up four credits toward the thirty I need to advance another
rank. I put up the traditional tree and the replacement bulbs looked better than the ones I already had had.
This is the only weekend without an agenda, which follows a week without an agenda. Purple Heart is due tomorrow.

I awoke at 4:30, lay awake, then arose at 5:10. Mom was up and dressed my brother. I was able to spend time
at the computer, to take out the chair/footstool combination, and to walk to work. Despite the wind, I felt good when
I arrived at work.
Meanwhile I found the site for WLW in Cincinnati. I was unaware that Joe Nuxhall had died. It reminded me
of the winter of 1972-73, when I listened to that station before going to deliver newspapers.
On this date in 1972, the
gym was ready for us. However, the teacher told only he group on Thursday, neglecting us who came only on Monday.
I hated that subject anyway.
Wed 5 Dec 14:59
This time I was up at 4 AM, and I struggled with Tripod again. It won't upgrade my site, constantly crashing the
internet explorer. When I used a different domain, it wiped out my site!
Despite all, I had to drive this morning. Once again, it is trying to snow like Sunday.
I had to clean and dress my brother. However, I also sent out the forms for Pennsylvania Head Injury Program.
Thu 6 Dec Saint Nicholas 14:45
I should remind myself of the wine-and-cheese party (to which) I went some thirtyone years ago. My first sophomore
year at Penn State was so critical in changing my path.
The sloppy snow from last night continued. Although I was up early enough to walk, I spent time sweeping snow.
Fri 7 Dec Pearl Harbor, 1941
I awoke at 1 AM, and didn't get back to sleep until 3 AM. Tripod still hasn't fixed mysite. Someone
called for me to pick up some bookcases tomorrow night, so I have a stop before I go to PathMark.
Sat 8 Dec 17:52
I awoke from a dream in which I traveled back forty years. I was in Newton in 1967 again! Miss Cross
was teaching fifth grade.
I had no bullies -- a brief respite. What brought it on? The Benson and Hedges commercial from 1967 I saw
at TV Party? My trying to get the lyrics to "Incense and Peppermints" finally correct after forty years? This
morning Lyndon Johnson and the war in Vietnam ran, and it was a very favorable comparison to Schrub and Iraq.
I upgraded the site -- finally -- and the editor was finally working. I uploaded more tunes, especially on this
Mon 10 Dec 15:15
When I arose this morning, Tim was almost ready to get out of bed. Therefore, I walked to work in slightly wet
conditions. I also had a ride the last fourth of the walk.
The History Channel has "1968" -- which I also taped -- last night. They mentioned neither of the names of the
assassins. Unfortunately Sirhan Bishra Sirhan still breathes! After forty years, it still hurts.
I went grocery shopping for others yesterday, and then picked up some things around noon. I took a large bookcase,
a dust buster, and a spray painter home.
I finished my first course on trusts and estates. Those seven credits added to the four toward the thirty more
I need to move up another level. I can see how I'll get it done over the next few weeks.
Tue 11 Dec 15:04
I've been rolling around in my mind some schemes to initiate not only an autobiography, but also a comic from my dream
of returning to my life forty years ago.
Meanwhile, I've also run into ideas from other sources expressed on Red Dog Saloon some twentysix years ago. I
must retape 19 December to preserve it.
