40 years ago on thursday.....

D. B. Cooper boarded a plane at Sea Tac airport, and hijacked it.  He jumped out around the WA - OR border.  He's never been found, but some money was.

There is crying in baseball again.

RIP Greg Holman.  He played for the Seattle Mariner's this year.  He was murdered by his brother in Holland this morning.  Unbelievable.

Just looked at the outside thermometer.  Its a balmy 18' F this morning.  No wonder I was really cold when I got home last nite.  Spent some time with family watching the last 2 Harry Potter movies.  I'm caught up now.  I read the last book in 3 days.  My niece also turned 30 yesterday.  I feel old too.   The best quote of the night was by cousin.  She said something about a "drive by graping."  Yes, you read right.  During my travels yesterday, I hit ticket bastard.  I'm going to see Prince…

Prince Rogers Nelson...

Is headed to the Tacoma Dome dec 19th.  Saw him back in 1988 in the round.  I am seriously considering getting tickets for this show.  I feel the urge to party like its 1999.

Happy Veteran's Day.

My dog decided to celebrate too by waking me up at 5am.  She must have thought it was time for me to go to work or something.  (Or it could still be revenge for taking her to the vet recently- lol).  My dad was national guard, my borhter-in-law is retired Navy.  My late boyfriend was in the Army before he joined a band.  He was stationed in Germany, and when he got out he traveled around europe with a guitar playing in local coffee houses.

The end of the Joe Paterno era.

This is just sad. JoePa is gone and its not fair.  He wasn't the one who had abused 9 kids in 15 years.  The cops, and school administrators did nothing, yet Joe Paterno is thrown under the bus.  When I was a kid I used to watch the Pitt Vs Penn state games.  I was watching CNN and ESPN earlier.  The students are out in the streets.  One man's riot is another man's chaperoned party.  Coach Paterno is in his 80's and should have been allowed to retire at the end of the season.  But not…

Time for reflection!

Andy Rooney passed away today, a guy who came into this world 2 days before prohibition was ratified by 3/4 of the states. The same day John McGraw, Charles A Stoneham, & Judge MCQuade buy NY Giants. Two days before 2 million gallons of molasses flood Boston MA, drowning 21. He admitted to loving…

Running around like a crazy person finally caught up with me. I fell asleep during the Joy Behard show (7pm pacific).  Woke up just in time for a repeat of Prime Suspect.  I have never napped unless I was sick before.  Well, I guess I can watch the season premier of Bones at 9pm now.  (lol).  I must be getting old.

carpal tunnel

I think my carpal tunnel is back,  Bought a wrist brace.  My hand keeps falling asleep.  The bad thing is, its my left and, and I'm left handed.  Looks like the honeymoon phase with my computer is officially over.  I guess I can finish the book I started reading a few days ago (lol)
