“I don’t have a formal home recording studio, but I can record tracks on my computer upstairs in my office.”~Huey Lewis

I am just a few short weeks away from embarking on a brand new journey which will take me to an experience not yet had before.

And I can barely contain myself!!

Words are just not there to describe how excited that I am to know that soon I will again go to Houston and instead of enjoying live music by any of several bands there that I enjoy, I will be in the creative process of making music by the direction of Dr. Froth and his brand new project called “Gathered In Darkness.”

Yes, you read correctly. I shall be inside of the record studio and on the other side of the glass recording whatever it is that needs to be recorded.

You don’t know what I am talking about?

Well read about it herehere, and here.

Did you see? I told you!!! This project is happening and its making waves and getting noticed. And it just blows my mind that I am going to be a part of it, no matter how large or small the part. I still will be able to connect myself to this.  drfroth1

Not since my days of being a part of F.M.R. have I been this thrilled and honored at the same time. And terribly excited to actually get to do something as cool as this.

My endless thanks goes out to Dr. Froth for his request that I partake in this adventure with him. My heart knows no ends to my appreciation that he would decide to include me in this.

More squealing updates as they become available. You should also follow Dr. Froth’s blog as well if you want to know what the down and the low is on the project.

ROCK ON, BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!! I’m about to be a recorded entity soon. And on the same album as big time names in music today.

For those of you who know me personally know that yesterday was my birthday.

It was a good day, by the evening time… it had turned into a wonderful day because I heard from the people that I was hoping that I would hear from in the evening. How I love them!

And the others who continue to fall short, did so again for another year. To absolutely no surprise.

But it was a good birthday.

I had been pumped up about for weeks. My mind was positive. And I kept thinking good thoughts.

So yes, I did have a good birthday.

Today though, I moved on. It was another day. And then somewhere in between 4:00 and 5:00 PM, my local time… my cell phone began to ring.

I had the shock of my life as I took several minutes in doubt, trying to establish who I was speaking with. Once I realized it wasn’t a joke… it wasn’t a prank… and this was real– I LOST IT!!

Being called by a big time celebrity for your birthday from out of nowhere IS a big deal. Dear GOD IN HEAVEN!! Wake up people!!!!!

It took me a while to calm down afterwards. My head spinning. My brain re-playing the conversation over and over and over again in my head. Stunned, shocked, and crazily in a daze.

A neighbor and I think we have it narrowed down to who was responsible for it happening.  It is a good theory. But one likely to never know the light of day.

I spoke to a few people online about it. They were of mutual admiration of this person.  Some supportive, the others hateful and a doubting Thomas.


And it doesn’t matter who it was that called, I made sure that I knew who I was talking with… or potentially talking with. I actually wasted my personal time trying to figure it all out before I realized that it was all true. 1176532-12-1354311129051

If you don’t believe in miracles, then this story isn’t going to work for you. Nor will you believe it or anything else that I might tell you. If you do not believe that anything is possible then the same situation applies. You’ll never believe in anything is possible and will always be doubtful. And that could be because of greed, jealousy, or hatred. Whatever that may be.

I warned that 2014 was going to be different.  You obviously did not pay attention to me when I said that it would be different. And in this month of January, everything has been proven to be true. If you don’t believe.. you don’t have to. I mean, nobody is forcing you to do anything you do not want to do.

But I’m not going to care any more. So here’s to you!!

It happened. And since it was on my cell phone. I have the number from which they called. It could be a disposable phone. But I know what it was at least when they my number.

Gimme wings to fly.

Haters will hate.

And in addition, “never love but masturbate.” Which doesn’t make any other sense but rhyme. OR DOES IT?

“I’ve got one of four known Davy Crockett rifles. It’s fantastic just to know it’s one of the rifles that he actually used. His cousin had it.”~  Phil Collins

Today is a day that I just wanna run up the to the tops of the mountains and scream until I pee in my pants.

After many years… more than a decade of searching for my cousin, she popped up on the radar again.

The last time I actually saw my cousin face to face was around the time of my grandmother’s death. I was only days away from turning 18 years old.

So yeah, its been a long time!!

I recall attempting to establish communication and a connection with her for many years. My younger brother and I would constantly bug that side of the family (which happened to be my biological mother’s side) in order to find out where our cousin was.

Come to find out, she had gone off into the world and just never really stayed in one place to call home. My brother and I had always had the impression that her family was keeping her whereabouts a big ole secret.

However the reunion happened. She surfaced and I was able to talk with my cousin.

It was a long struggle, especially being allowed to think that my brother and I were being blocked with information to where she was at and how we could contact her.

But now I am happier than a tick on a hound dog. Hopefully my cousin and I will stay in better contact.

Wish me luck!!!

At the moment you are no longer an observing, reflecting being; you have ceased to be aware of yourself; you exist only in that quiet, steady thrill that is so unlike any excitement that you have ever known.”~ May Sinclair

Ughh!!! Five days longer. And in those five days will come the beginning of the 2011-12 sled hockey season. My team will hit the ice running, or umm… sledding.

I’ve been looking forward to this for a very long time. The summer was brutal and any kind of sessions WOULD have been great. But it didn’t happen. I’m also reminded that I missed out on the second half of the season because I got sick with pneumonia back last March, and never recovered strong enough to get back on the ice for the previous season. I believe that in 2011, I was only on the ice twice in the month of February, and I missed so much- including a surprise birthday gathering that my head coach at the time had planned because one hockey session landed on my birthday this year back in January.

But I’m healthy now and can get back on the ice. However strength and conditioning is another issue. With all the heat we had during the summer, being drained like that of energy didn’t exactly keep me in shape.

Nonetheless, I am so freakin’ fired up that I cannot stand it any longer. These next few days are going to drive me crazy!! Now I am understanding that this season, we will have new leadership on the ice. I do not know the people personally but others on the team do. So I think it will be interesting to see how things go.

And I am understanding that the team received a pretty large grant this year. Actually, all of the teams in the league did. So what does it mean for the team? We TRAVEL.

Ohhhh yeahhhhhh buddy!!

Throughout the season, we’ll be going to different cities in the state to play everyone in the league. Yes, we’ll get our asses kicked on the ice… but that’s not the important thing. The majority of the excitement within that is that the team has been wanting to travel and play for such a long time.

It is unfortunate that since I started playing, we’ve lost some players. It was all over their disgruntled attitude that the team “wasn’t going anywhere”. They too, wanted to travel and play. But because we were not doing that, they left the team. It is too bad that they didn’t stick it out and got the practice, because now we are going to do exactly what they were whining to do. And they are no longer participating on the team in any way.

We even have our own jerseys now. A nice logo on the front and everything. Something I personally slaved for over eight months to get done. The people that left, also wanted that too.

Oh well. I’m not going to focus on what was, and get down to business on what can be, and what will be. Our first travel date is the 19th of November. Not a lot of time to get prepared, but hey- we’re doing it!!

This season will be my fourth season playing for the team. I was named co-assistant captain of the team last season, and the season before that, I scored my first goal in an actual competition. Since then, I’ve scored well over 100 of them. The person that was counting them all from week to week lost count at that point. So it is more, but nobody knows how many. Scoring Powerhouse, anyone?!?

Last season, the team was looking up to me for a lot, both on and off the ice. And I suppose it was okay. I honestly have to admit that I love playing sledge hockey (or sled hockey as it is known in the USA. You know how we gotta do things differently all of the time!).

Sure, I’ve have had my minor injuries. Luckily, nothing too serious or major. It still IS hockey after all. The sadist within says that I am looking forward to more. Nothing more exciting then running into someone with the puck and knocking them over and coming in for the steal. Or slamming others into the wall. You think AB hockey is exciting? You should check out your local team in your area.

There are teams all over the country. From Sacramento and San Jose, California all the way across the other side of the country in Florida and of course up north through the Great Lakes and into New England.

Watch a game or two, then you tell me which became more exciting! I challenge you.

But hey, I’m just totally stoked that I’m going to get this chance to get back on the ice after being off of it for so long. Leading the team during scrimmages and practices, and finally getting that chance again to go up against someone with the scoreboard turned on.
