Random Thoughts from a Random Mind

Some cool stuff happening around here...
They're having a Texas Hold'em Tournament, Spaghetti dinner, and silent auction tonight as a fundraiser for my kid sister Angie who had a double mastectomy last month. The fundraiser is to help offset the costs that her insurance didn't cover. The people at her job really came together and are going to make it special. Of course her big brother won't be there. I will be in St Louis broadcasting hockey games online this weekend and will be leaving in a few. But I'm sure she'll do fine. Yesterday was Terri's birthday. She told me how much she really appreciates each one now. I don't blame her. Last weekend, a player on the team we played was hurt and ended up hospitalized. So one of the assistant coaches stayed behind with him and they were in town till the player got released from the hospital yesterday. I spent my down time running back and forth with the coach and getting him out of the hospital to not go stir crazy and he seemed like a nice enough guy. But my gal pal didn't like not getting to spend ANY time with me this week. I'm gonna have to do something to make it up to her... She puts up with me so much... And deserves so much more than I give her. But she's satisfied with a goof like me. So I'm grateful and happy that she loves me. I know some have said that she's lucky to have me too. But I'm telling you folks, SHE is the amazing one. I'm just the big dork who loves her. I do what I do these days because the Good Lord put her in my life. I know I wouldn't be the guy that I am if she weren't around. I'd be empty, miserable, and a complete weenie, being a complete doorknob to people. THAT is how big of a difference she makes in my life. From doorknob, to weenie, to dork, to her Mik... it scares me sometimes when I think about how different my life is now with her in it. I am so blessed that I'm not the same schmuck that I used to be. Believe me, I was a pretty rotten guy... But I guess it took getting old and having your rear end handed to you a few times to appreciate life. She is the icing on the cake. Heck she IS the cake... of course now I've made myself hungry thinking of cake and wanting a big heaping slice of red velvet cake with 23 thousand layers of frosting on it. What in the heck is a diabetic supposed to do???? Ugh...

Mick- you're such a SWEET WIENIE!!! A truly loveable dork and door knob! From one door nob to another, I ought to know eh!
I'm glad Angela has such a good group at her work, and that she'll have a little less (bills wise anyway) to worry about. Tell Terry I say HAPPY BLESSED BIRTHDAY!! Please don't sing it to her though cause my singing voice, even though I can sing in tune, sounds like a foghorn.
Some day when you and your sweet girl come down here to visit ;-) I will make you a diabetic dessert to drool over. I don't know what it is yet, but since my mother in law is now diabetic (and she has a bigger sweet tooth than you!) we are learning all sorts of yummy sugar free delectables.
OK my friend and brother- be safe, enjoy the hockey eh, and God Bless!!!
