Gettin on in the years!!

Full speed ahead...screw the stop sign!!

Well,  this coming November this little blog I call my life story will be 4 yrs old.  I started it on 13 Nov 2007.  I needed an outlet because I had just been diagnosed for the first time.  Lots of posts and comments since then. Lots of stuff has happened some bad mostly good though.  Made lots of friends along the way, and I think encouraged a few people to start their own blog.  4 years not a whole lot of time but it has been long for me…So lets look towards tomorow and see what it has in store for me and whoever else and by the way its BIG BLUE AND GLADIATOR SEASON and of course RETIREMENT is right around the corner…so stay tuned and I will leave a light on….JUST A QUICK GETTING OLD THOUGHT

2010 – That was a close one!!

I love this place!!

Well….As this year comes to a close I can say with 100%  certainty this was the worst year of my life..but oddly also the best.  I should probably explain this.  The year started off simply enough, transferring to another command where i sat around for a month or two before AZC (He will be important in this story later)  found a job for me.  Now i cannot entirely say the job was all that bad cause it was mids and the guy i worked with is a funny dude.  But like people say all good things end and this one did and HOW!!!…I was rolling in JASU til May when my old nemesis showed up AGAIN!! I swear i hate this motherfucker but none the less BAM here it is AGAIN….BUT..yes a young warrior was there to SAVE ME THAT NIGHT!!! so the nemesis thinking putting it in my head would get me..BAM NO DICE FOR IT (Cancer x3) So know it knew that i could fight it I WOULD and low behold Nemesis LOST yet again.  Silly FUCK should know better by now…Now remember I talked about AZC earlier..he along with others from where i work along  with Family were by my bedside cheering me on..telling me to fight Nemesis and everyone was up for a fight to banish it and we did.  Did I mention I also somehow broke my shoulder that night as well, dont know how that happened, maybe some overzealous parameds trying to get their pqs signed off or working on that eagle scout badge.  So after 2 more surgeries and dont know how many tests it was home for me..and dont you know my angel Florence Nightingale (Penelope) was there for me and nursed me back to health.  So dont you know 50 days later I am up and around..all of sudden its July..and where o where will the ZMAN work…turned out my humor and bright spirit wound up ..upstairs working with the gents in the Pubs dude..where i reside to this day…I was able to mosey off the ranch and go north to see my family especially my parents (Yes the Zman too has parents) so they could know I am in fact okay and getting better.  Now you ask, why did you tell this story..well one cause I missed my fellow bloggers and to tell you to never give up and never stop dreaming of tomorow cause it will be a day full of new experiences even they are fucked up for a little bit.  So the theatre lights are back come on down and enjoy the show cause there are more stories about FRC and the ranch and my FB family I would like to tell you…Just a quick thought about how this year was very bad and awesome at the same time….How was it good…i discovered what real love is and why every day is worthing living to its fullest…Zman sends

Homecoming 09′

Opening up the theatre today was a real task for me today.  And as I suppose like everyone else does I was reflecting on this weekend.  I drove 900 miles between Friday morning and Sunday Afternoon, for a little rest and relaxation away from the daily grind of the MARCC and the Ranch.  But I gotta say those miles were worth the trip.  Anytime I drive up north there are a few things that are a must.  A few slices at  Umbertos is always a must !!! Yeeeaah buddy.   A Vincents meal is of  course mandatory as well…..followed by a cannoli mmmmm…of course I am a little sad that the cannoli shell at vincents has been substituted by a waffle shell…thats total BS……While I was up there I had an occasion to stop by the NHP  Gladiator Homecoming game..they of course lost 34-10 to Elmont.  A few things struck me though….I thought I was going to see a team that was dramatically demographically changed and No that was not the case…the other is how small the players actually looked.  Almost as if there is no weight program, going on their.  There looked like very little effort was being put forth on behalf of NHP…the thing that came to mind the most was how UNINSPIRED they looked.  But to me that goes directly to who is in charge of inspiring their team. ….Now more then ever..I think Coach Dolan should get the BOOT……on a good note the floats looked terrific and they were clearly the highpoint of this years homecoming celebration

Great concept



Another great job!!

………..I did get to see my brothers and talk some story over a few beers…that is always a fun thing to do……..I gotta say I love to drive their is something very calming about it……So now I am back on the ranch and things today went okay with Penelope…..just a quick  traveling thought.
