09-08-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Roll On Down the Road” “There’s a lot of life left in me and you’re the only girl that I want to see but there’s still a lot of things that I love along the highway. Its’ a country boys dream to get out on the road play all night with the rodeo and stop in every honky-tonk I see”……………………this song I did finish but I just remembered it last week when it was requested at one of my shows an I haven’t played it since I shopped it in Nashville in 1985ish…to no avail BTW…I can’t believe I remembered all the words…the brain is a mysterious thing sometimes… plain and simple.
Each day I wake, as if the new day will be magically new. No wars, no fighting, no poverty, no deceitfulness…just, togetherness…I will each day, hope that this is that day!... enjoy the weekend all…peace…plain and simple.

08-29-14-My Morning Thoughts: UMU Senior Year! University of Mount Union Women’s Volleyball, the senior year begins for my daughter Allison and her six other senior sisters tonight! They have been coined the “Magnificent Seven” because they all started together as freshman and…well let’s see…in these last three years they are 24-3 in their division, 83-20 overall and three straight NCAA bids! I could go on and on with records and stats but that really wouldn’t compare to the extended family those girls have become! Any success, though greatly deserved, is a minor triumph when compared to a lifetime of friendship they have championed!...have a great season ladies, I love you Allison and in case you didn’t know…I’m that crazy dad yelling from the top row cheering on your team!... Go Raiders!!!...plain and simple.
