Kindra and DL are riding their bicycles today from Houston to Austin, Texas in the MS150 benefit ride. They will actually accumulate about 167 miles when they finish on Sunday. I am praying for no winds, no accidents and much strength. I will let you know how they manage the ride. Dave and a group of friends rode theirContinue reading “Wild Hogs”

On the Road Again..
Dave and I are on our way to Omaha again for the week for work. We will be seeing a lot of this…… Dave picked up some Oklahoma Joe’s pulled pork and brisket to take to his co-workers along with some Lil’ Smokers BBQ sauce. Somebody has to show them what is important in thisContinue reading “On the Road Again..”
Twenty years ago I started working for a company, Marion Merrill Dow, that not only shaped the course of my future career path, but became the standard by which I would judge all future employers. (btw, no other employer has come close). The eight years I worked for this organization also produced life long friends.Continue reading “A Legacy”
It’s all relative…
When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you are sitting on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That is relativity. Albert Einstein. Last week the physical therapist put weights on my ankles and made me get in the water. I was thinking she was trying toContinue reading “It’s all relative…”
Spring….it was not here fast enough for me. It was absolutely beautiful in Lee’s Summit this weekend. I celebrated on Saturday by going out to lunch with a friend I do not get to see very often. Over lunch I told her I was looking for a new recliner to put on the first floorContinue reading “Spring Weekend”

In his words, “my job in this marriage is to provide health benefits so Theresa can do whateverContinue reading “Six Million Dollar Woman???”

For now I am doing pool therapy 3 times per week. It feels great, the water is 92 degrees. I am able to do much more in theContinue reading “Physical Therapy”
Just returned from a great three-day weekend in Branson. Friends asked us if we would like to join them at their time share this past weekend and we had a really nice time. They were so nice to us, making sure we had a first floor condo so I would not have to do stairsContinue reading “Branson”
Post Surgery Expectations
Several people have asked me if I will be 100% normal after all these surgeries. GREAT QUESTION! I actually asked Dr. L that very thing before the first surgery. His response was “If that were not the expectation, we would not be doing this.” I think that was doctor speak for “I sure hope so!” Continue reading “Post Surgery Expectations”
Tribute to Ken
For the past several months Kindra and DL have been training for the Houston MS150 which will be held in April. My husband and his father participated in the MS150 – Kansas City ride for many years. DL wrote a nice tribute about Kindra’s grandfather expressing the reasons he is participating in the ride. Below isContinue reading “Tribute to Ken”
