Allison Update

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

After being out of town yesterday and in court all this morning, I finally got the chance to talk to my sister. She is in a lot of pain (predictably), but the doctors said the surgery went “fine” and “great” respectively. She will have to return to the hospital on Friday to see if the [...]

Negative, Ghost Rider, The Pattern Is Full

Saturday, June 17th, 2006

Off we go, into the wild blue yonder . . . I got to spend Father’s Day Eve with my son Kyle today. At noon, he had his last t-ball game of the season, and received his trophy – which was a silver-colored baseball player with a small baseball bobble head. It was really cool, [...]
