Nick and Kristin Kray

November 30th, 2005
A long overdue thank you and congratulations to both Nick and Kristin. They were married on a beautiful day in October; a wedding I was actually able to attend. I have known Nick and Kristin both since college from classes we had together. Two men who… more »

Old men and the barbershop.

November 29th, 2005
There is perhaps no greater experience than walking into the barbershop and waiting for your turn in the chair while a handful of "old timers" converse. When I walked into the barbershop today and saw how long the wait was, at first I was disappointed.… more »

I guess it is not all that often that I am very impressed with one particular professional athlete's performance. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all professional athletes (except baseball players) for the hours of training I know they put in… more »

My Chicago weekend.

November 15th, 2005
What a weekend. What an incredible weekend. I had so much fun. My thanks go out to Nick, his parents, and everyone who attended for making those few days such a blast. Nick's birthday was last week and for the occasion, his parents put on a little… more »

Dry clean only.

We are not alone.

November 7th, 2005
So I forgot to post this on Friday. Maybe that was part of the plan. Perhaps it was by design that I didn't find time on Friday for this post. I take it that I have extraordinary brain power and was able to fight at least part of the memory erasing I… more »

I still feel kinda bad.

November 3rd, 2005
In trying to remain relatively active, part of the plan is to make a more concerted effort to play more tennis. The idea came to me to try and join a league at my gym. For whatever reason I was unable to join, but my name and phone number were added to… more »
