Sunday Quick Hits

Been a very busy week and not a lot of time in front of a computer.  We were able to break away for a few days to head to San Antonio for Spring Break.  But as soon as we got to town, we learned that my dad had suffered a stroke.  He seemed to be OK, so we continued on with our vacation but decided to cut it short and come home on Friday just in case.  Saturday morning, we found out he had yet another stroke, this one doing some damage creating some loss of movement on one side of his body.  He still remains in the hospital, but seems to be in good spirits even with everything he has gone though.  We still await the results of a slew of tests that will be forthcoming in the next few days.

I spent the afternoon Saturday in the new Keller library doing some research for the City Council session Tuesday….while a great improvement, it still appears as if they have a little bit longer to get everything up and running.  Speaking of the City Council Meeting, I plan to give my opinion to the Council on why I think this idea of refinancing is both irresponsible and avoidable.  If I have to make a sudden trip to go see my dad, Shannon said she would sub for me and read my “speech.”

Saturday night we decided at the last-minute to head to Hank’s in McKinney to go see Cory Morrow play.  Yes, it was blizzard like conditions, yes, we were crazy to do it, but yes, we had a great time.  Got to hang out with Cory for a time after the show and seems that he has signed on to a new CD this year with Pat Green.  Next show for us will be Jack Ingram in the coming weeks.

Ranger’s Manager Ron Washington failed a drug test last year…..oh brother was my reaction.  Could we just fire him now and get it over with?

Bart Stupack got what he ultimately wanted….name recognition.  Too bad he sold out 30 years of being pro-life for it.

If a book encourages its reader to order three more of the author’s books, I think it’s worth mentioning here.  Lynne Olson’s Citizens of London is such a book.  I read it this week while on vacation and learned a great deal I didn’t know before. 

The Indians continued their winning ways Friday night with a win over Central.  They faceoff with District Powerhouse Grapevine at Keller Tuesday night.  Should be a good gauge on where Keller will end up in 5-5A.

 When they took my dad in for his second MRI in as many days Saturday morning, they asked what music he would like to listen to.  He told them to put some AC/DC on….while my 66 year old father was laying there listening to his music, a tech came in and shocked I guess that it was playing asked the other tech who put that music on?  The Tech laughed and said that’s what the man wanted.

I don’t know what song was playing, but this is one of my dad’s favorites.
