A friend of mine got bit by a hornet. She is OK and recovering nicely from the bite. It reminded me of when I was about 12. My friend and his brother and I went for a walk in the woods. His brother stepped in a hornets nest. Not knowing what to do we let him follow us at 10 or 12 arms length away so the hornets around him would not get us. We walked a few blocks and finally got him home. Opened the door to his kitchen then pushed him in. We called his mother and she was confronted with a son with hornets on him and in his shirt. She screamed. He screamed. We screamed. The hornets screamed and flew all around the kitchen. We felt like hero's we got him, Jimmy, home safely. His mother never saw it that way but she recovered, Jimmy recovered and the hornets flew out the window she opened. Have you ever done a heroic thing for your friends?

Wright, right, wrong.

Sometimes I feel I am right and sometimes I feel I am wrong. Lately I feel I am wrong about everything. I like to be right once in awhile but not when it offends or hurts the other person that has to be right. Right and wrong seems to cause a lot of fights in a relationship, especially marriage. I am single so if I argue a right or wrong issue to myself it does not matter if I win or not. Just so I make sure I do not go to bed mad at myself. I am only writing this now because I need something to do before my show "RESCUE ME" comes on. I like the show because I think we all need rescuing once in awhile. What do you do to fill in the time?

I have been very sleepy lately. I blame it on my air conditioner. It is summer again and the weather is warmer. I put on my little AC unit and seem to drift away. I did get to go to a few car shows. Those old and some of the newer cars are fun to look at. Especially if the trip ends in getting some ice cream. Are you keeping cool this summer?

All fall down.

I did something I have not done in awhile. I fell down. Fell down, scraped my knee, two knuckles on my right hand and ripped my pants. It was a good fall. I was at a gas station and almost fell in front of a car. I had a few witnesses that asked me if I was all right and the car I fell in front of slammed on the brakes and hit his horn. Not really, but I thought I'd throw that in to make it a little more dramatic fall. I did scrape myself as I had mentioned. I was lucky because it usually is a pretty busy gas station and was relieved there was not too many cars filling up with gas. Did you ever have a close call and a fall?

Journey ends.

This chapter of my life is over. I did not get picked for the game show "Millionaire." It was a great day though. I got to use the bus and the bus driver was an excellent help. I saw the actor who plays, "MONK." I was on time for everything and so it was not a rushed day. Did you ever go to NY? How was your day there?

A NY Minute

Tomorrow is my big trip to the Big Apple. I think my trip will go well if I can avoid car bombs, planes, or muggings. Not that NY is that bad but I am not the luckiest of people. I have my bus schedule, tickets, cell phone, directions, cab fare and clean underwear, OK mom. So I think I am ready. What would you bring to NY if you were going to spend a day there?

I really do not know how to prepare for my audition. I have been reading trivia books and playing the online, "Millionaire," game. I also been watching the game on TV to see how everything works. I am beginning to get a little nervous too. Oh well. How would you prepare for this game show?

Now what?

I was watching "Who Wants to be a Millionaire," and they said they were opening auditions. So I sent in my email request to be on the show and believe it or not I got an audition. I have to go to NY, pass a test, then pass an interview and then hopefully if my name is pulled from the pool; I can be on the show! I guess it doesn't hurt to try. I'll keep you informed as much as I can and you can share the journey with me. You ever think of trying out to be on a game show? Try it you never know what will happen next if you do.

Went to my 40Th, count em, 40Th class reunion. It had everything a class reunion should have. The high light for me was talking to a guy for 5 minutes thinking he was in my class. Turned out he was there with his wife that graduated with our class. I felt pretty embarrassed so I picked myself up and got in there and talked to another guy in my class. Unfortunately for me he was a twin and I got him mixed up too. Man. I decided it was time to quite trying to converse and just went to the dance floor and danced. I was having a hard time doing that. I have been sober 20 years and it did something to my dancing skills. So I decided to just sit it out and talk to Charlie's wife who was from one of the Asian countries and only talked broken English in a very very low voice. It was the best conversation I had all night. Oh well. How was your class reunion?

Good friends.

I had a good friend day today. My one friend invited me over for leftovers after the Memorial Day Cookout. The food was great the second time around and man did I fill up. My other friend inspected my car and gave me new break pads because I bought him lunch a few times. I got to pet my friends dogs and had a ball playing with them. It was a good friend day. Have you good friends you spend time with? I hope you do because they are special people. Maybe that is why we call them friends.
