Man Cave

The man cave is almost finished.

Actually, as far as I'm concerned it IS finished. The TV set is hung, the components are in the rack, the remote is set, the couch is in place and there's beer in the refrigerator.

Speaking of TVs ... did I mention that I have the new Samsung 3D TV? When I first bought it, there was only one movie out ... Monsters and Aliens. I know it by heart. Now there are at least ... um ... three more I think.

Regardless, it came with these cool battery operated 3D glasses. Debbie says I look like a reject from the Blu Blockers commercial. Yesterday, I went to Best Buy to get a pair of rechargeables. The battery life is short and I have to pace myself with viewing time, you know?

The new remote is really awesome. (I only say awesome when I have my Blu Blockers on). Pre-programmed for everything, it can play every station, movie and i tune on my system. AND ... I can turn on anything I want in any room of the house ... (why I would want to do that I don't know ... but I have that ability).

Josh got me Apple TV for Christmas. It is REALLY awesome. Scary awesome because I think it has now Genius-ed itself into telling ME what to watch and when.

I had to put a picture of beer here. Personally, I'm a scotch drinker ... but of course, in a man cave, beer is a necessity. Yuengling Light, I never heard of. Someone left a six pack here after a party in 2009. Still good though ... huh?

We took this off the shower bar to put up over the sliding doors.

Just kidding, I like this picture and think it's a great deterrent for visitors. We really have bed sheets ... sorry ... Debbie says bed sheet "window treatments".

I think they are gonna be replaced but they work for me.

Oh, I forgot to give an update on the rest of the house. It's ... coming along.


all you need is a pool table and a back scratcher.

SAMMY: The Novel (An Overview)

I finished writing Sammy:The Novel. 

So ... I called my good buddy and excellent writer, Dave Scheiber, to help me write an overview to pique the interest of publishers. The stuff that Dave wrote made me want to read my own book! We combined our efforts and here's what we came up with:

SAMMY (An Overview)

Sammy Levine, 86-year-old resident of Star of David nursing home, was not happy with his daily existence and dreamed of taking one last trip with his wife Esther (presently residing in an urn on the third shelf in his room). Sammy was careful about not exposing his plan to anyone, especially his son, Barry, who dutifully visited regularly and tried to make sure that he lived out his remaining days comfortably.

Through a carefully choreographed plan, Sammy managed to access personal information on three recently deceased residents from the nursing home’s computers. Then he applied for and obtained three new credit cards. Armed now with available cash and credit, he loaded up Esth…

Close Call

I was just putting the finishing touches on my new novel, Sammy, which will be available to order in November (shameless self promotion!) ... when I started thinking about some of the characters in my past life. One character I've actually written about in the past just popped into my head. It's a repeat story but I hope you enjoy it ... again.

When I was a Freshman at LSU, our dorm was set up like a suite with two adjoining double rooms and a common kitchen and living room. "Suite" really makes it sound much fancier than it was. Actually, living room makes it sound much fancier than it was. The walls were cinder block and the living room was about 100 square feet. I don't think four of us could even stand up in there at one time.

One of the four guys in our suite was the place kicker for the LSU Tigers. His name was Phil and he was from Bogalusa, Louisiana. He had the bed next to mine. Phil was about 6'8" and weighed well over 300 pounds. He was a big …

Princess Grace's Diary

We surprised our little princess, Grace on Friday with a last minute visit to Savannah. She and her BFF Stella had a joint princess birthday party.

It was of course no surprise to Deb and me that the trip had a few surprises for us, too.

It started out with a light show at the airport (we chose to fly rather than drive the 12 hours back and forth for one day). Lightning strikes were coming fast ... so the tarmac was closed until it settled down. We had to get to Atlanta in time to catch what had become the LAST flight of the night to Savannah at 11:20 PM.

We made it ... barely ... and fell asleep at 2 AM.

Up at 8 and out the door via Uber to The Landings (a mere 45 minute drive) and just in time to see this adorable duo.

Big brother Cole was  one of the "hosts".

Pony rides were there for the guests.

Matching Princess cakes (of course).

Lots of fun.

At about 2, Deb and I headed back to the airport with Nikki driving and made it in PLENTY of time to find out that there were n…
