A lot of people have been asking me about the video of me on Jimmy Kimmel….so I thought I’d post it for you. Click on the links below in order to see the entire skit. Also check out the never seen before behind the scene photos

This Week In Pictures – Fremont Ross Track

I thought….I know 🙂 but I did…My thought was to try just a Photo Blog and what better topic this week than that of the Fremont Ross Track Team. This is what happened this past Saturday (click on picture for viewer);

So this didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted it to….I’ll figure that out as I go along. Anyway…hope you enjoyed


Take A Bullet For The President And Get Your Hooker Too!

I think those Secret Service guys can cross one of those things off their lists. I was thinking this might be a good time to talk about my Bucket List. I’ve always said that I’ve already done more things than any person should or could do; either by chance or just being in the right place at the right time or just because I was in the Marine Corps. I’ve done the weird the bazaar and the crazy….and that’s just the women. I’ve traveled the world and seen and have done more things than you can imagine, but there’s still a lot of things I’ve not done that I could do.

So here you go…things I still want to accomplish before I check out! (this list is growing);

What will you do?


The “Lite” Light

The subtle ceremony that marks the beginning of a night of fun laughter and friendship is a tradition born a few years ago while looking for the proper place to hang the Miller Lite sign. In keeping with the finest tradition of the old “Bud Light” sign in the window of the old Maple St. Apartment in Clyde, Oh….There was only one place it could hang….the window….Thus “Lite On” meant we’re here, stop in for a moment a while or a night!

Just like the beacon of a lighthouse on a storm-swept coast welcoming ships and sailors home from a long trip, so does the “Lite” light at the Croghan Street Yacht Club welcome our friends home from a long weary day at work. This summer marks the 3rd that the Lite burns bright. The Lite light can be seen just beyond the corner of Croghan Street on Wilson… you pass the yellow house, peer off to the right and look through the bushes…you’ll see her…guiding you in.

Although the best night to see this spectacular shining beacon of joy is Friday night, it has been known to shine throughout the week the day and the occasional Sunday morning. If such a moment occurs that the Lite light is not shining bright when you come to call…turn it on for all to see. If I’m home…I’ll come out and have a drink talk a while share a story tell a lie deal a card. If no one comes out…stay awhile keep the Lite shining and see the miracle of the  Lite at the CSYC. People will come. They’ll come to the CSYC for reasons they can’t even fathom. They’ll turn into the driveway not knowing for sure why they’re doing it. They’ll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for a good time. Of course, we won’t mind if you look around, you’ll say. If you have the time and they do have the time its a good time they lack. And they’ll walk in to the bar; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They’ll find they have reserved seats somewhere along the bar or in a lawn chair. And they’ll watch a  game on the TV and it’ll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The smiles will be so thick they’ll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come. The one constant through all the years (the last 3 years),  has been the CSYC. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But The CSYC has marked the time. This bar, this “Lite: it’s a part of our past. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh… people will come. People will most definitely come. (Now repeat this last paragraph in your “James Earl Ray” voice…its funny 🙂

So if you find yourself driving down Wilson or Croghan St coming home from work the store the bar or where ever your travels have taken you, don’t resist the yearning to come into the “Lite”…. Additional parking to the rear!
