A night to remember or should I.

Today again I feel really great. I had to go and get my Pre- Chemo blood work done. When I was leaving I saw a fellow employee from Avery. It was nice talking to him. He told me that he has been out of work for about 6 weeks himself . He had surgery and his wife has a lump in her breast. So any prayers that can be thrown his and his wife's way would be appreciated, Thank You.

Sally and I are going to a concert tonight. We purchased the tickets way back in January. We are going to see Cheap Trick, Poison and Def Leppard. This will be the 4Th time I seen Def Leppard and the third for Cheap Trick and the 1st for Poison. Sally and I saw Def Leppard with Journey about 3 years ago. That was a time that I won't forget for a while. Sally and I were having some trouble conceiving and had to go through fertility for Kaity( we did for Zach also). We dropped Michael and Zachary off at her sister's house to spend the night. It was the last night we had alone since. When we went out to dinner the fertility office called. We were told to proceed with the last shot if we wanted. We were told that Sally had 3-4 ripe eggs so the chances of her having more then one was high. Sally was a little nervous but I played cool. I told her God doesn't give more then we can handle. I told her we went this far I didn't want to stop now. Well anyway doing fertility you sometimes are on a time schedule. We were doing shots and you have to do them at a specific time for you to have better results. Sally didn't need the shots until about 11 ,so I figured we had plenty of time to get home. Well the concert lasted a lot later then we thought. They were really good and I didn't want to leave. We left right before the last song. I sped out and rushed onto the express way just to get into slow traffic. At one point it wasn't even moving. We finally made it home but an half hour later then we were suppose to. After a couple of failed attempts, we found out 2 weeks later, the day after Sally's birthday we were expecting.

I started this blog early because I knew we would be home late. As we started out to go to the concert it started to pour. Sally suggested we go to K-Mart and look and see if they may have umbrellas or maybe rain ponchos. We were in the store looking all over for them. I don't know if you noticed but, they wear red vest at K-Mart. So I am walking all over looking for the umbrellas. I see two men walking toward me in red shirts. I decided to do what I rarely do and that is ask for help. I go up to them and ask one of them if they knew were the umbrellas are. He looked at me in a puzzled way and said" NOOOO , I don't sir". " Can you please find out for me"." Sir I don't work here. That is when I noticed on the smallest of patches saying Prompt Ambulance Service on his big red shirt. Sorry, keep up the good work.

That reminded me of the time when we got new uniforms at work.The shirts we got were maroon. During this time Burger King employees had Maroon shirts as part of there uniforms. So everyone at the plant would come up to us and say "I want a burger , fries and a coke. This would go on for weeks. My friend Dan didn't help matters either .He came to work one day wearing a Burger King hat. Being the nice guy he is he made sure everyone in the department had one if they wanted one, of course I did. There shirts are different now.

Now let me tell you about the concert. All the groups were excellent.They sounded great and very clear, but enough of the boring stuff. There was this group of about 10 people in front of us. During the whole concert they were taking pictures of them self on their camera phones, just like Japanese tourist. Every time partially blinding me for a few seconds .I finally was getting a little mad at this. So I decided I would be in there pictures. So I did the goofiest grin I could do and point at them with both hands. So when they get home to really examine some of there pictures they will see a handsome man with a devious look on his face pointing at them. Sleep well my friends.
During one of the groups ,I was singing with one of there songs. When the song ended I was still moving my lips and Sally noticed this. So she was quick to point out that the song was over. Little did she know I wasn't singing anymore. I was having a conversation with the voices in my head.
After each group we would sit down on the blanket to rest. As I was sitting there minding my own business a group of three women came by us.Each of them holding cups of beer. As they were passing me one of them spilt her beverage on me." ( on my Cubs hat worse yet)Thank you very much have a nice day"!Later some guy stepped on one of my fingers. I was like what is going to happen next, it can't get any worse.Boy was I wrong.Again minding my own business talking to Sally and our friends Ron and Lynn. I started to smell a very foul Oder. It wasn't pot, although I did smell plenty of it. I started sniffing, thinking what is that.I stared to look around to see what it was. As I turned westward there at eye level was a very manly looking buttocks staring at me. At that point I was thinking I want to go home. I decided I would stand up for the rest of the show. So to summarize I was blinded, dribbled on, stepped on, a little stoned and farted on and it was awesome.well maybe except for getting farted on that sucked.

The Cubs have a winning streak going(2). Winning again 6-2 to the worst team in baseball the Nationals. The Sox won also to another team that is bad too, Baltimore 10-8

Thanks for visiting and God Bless.


  1. Hi Bill,
    Hope your doing great, bro.

    Hey, I just had to let you know, the Bible never says, "God doesn't give more then we can handle." In fact, quite often, God gives us tragedy and trials that nearly destroy us. The verse people often use in a bit of a distortion is:

    1 Corinthians 10:13 (English Standard Version)

    13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.(A) God is faithful, and(B) he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

    and Paul was actually warning people about being tempted:

    The verse that people have in mind when they say this actually has to do with temptation. Paul is warning the Corinthians against idolatry and immorality like that engaged in by the Israelites in the desert (1 Cor.10:6-11).

    1 Corinthians 10:6-11 (English Standard Version)

    6Now these things took place as examples for us, that we might not desire evil as(A) they did. 7(B) Do not be idolaters(C) as some of them were; as it is written,(D) "The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play." 8(E) We must not indulge in sexual immorality(F) as some of them did, and(G) twenty-three thousand fell in a single day. 9We must not put Christ[a] to the test,(H) as some of them did and(I) were destroyed by serpents, 10nor grumble,(J) as some of them did and(K) were destroyed by(L) the Destroyer. 11Now these things happened to them as an example, but(M) they were written down for our instruction,(N) on whom the end of the ages has come.

    Millions of people have experineced suffering beyond what mortal man can withstand. But God will not allow us to be tempted so that we cannot call on Him to help us resist that temptation.

    Just had to throw that out there.


  2. My wife and I went to that concert too. Sorry we didn't get to see you there. I would have given you a chair and not farted on you. Anyhow, glad to see you in remission and hope you can come back to work soon. Take care.
