Monday on the move

It’s a Monday in Kansas City, but it’s still a working day. I got a few stories written for Phillipsburg before hopping in the shower a few minutes go, and I’m about ready to leave for Overland Park, where I’m going to Morse-McCarthy Chevrolet to get my Impala serviced.

Last night went exceedingly well at Buffalo Wild Wings. I saw my trivia buddies Jane and Mark, and I got to spend a lot of time talking to Tori, Alyssa and of course, Liz. I stayed until 9:30 ready to get back there today, because Buzztime’s The Pulse, the weekly 30-question sports trivia game, is on at 7 tonight.

I felt guilty going back to hotel. Liz and Sean were walking across the ramp from Barry Road to I-29 north. I posted on Facebook to Liz that next time, she should ask me for a ride. She didn’t hold it against me. I want to be a friend and she appreciated it.

My father’s heart operation is in three hours. I hope he pulls through. His father has survived prostate cancer to get to 91. He fears he’s going to die before my grandfather. If that happens, I guess my mother would go back to Louisiana and I would be living with my grandfather again at 1224 North Brooks. I hope it doesn’t come to pass.

My dad went into the hospital at Hays in June for an irregular heartbeat, but they couldn’t find what exactly the problem was, so he was referred to the University of Kansas hospital in KCK. Other than this, the only other time he was in the hospital was for a concussion suffered on the job at Air Prodcuts and Chemicals in November 1970, 41 days after my parents were married. Remember, they did not meet until late July of that year and got married less than three months after their first date.

All of the news outlets are talking about a massive snowstorm barreling towards the northeast. The forecast is for two feet of snow in Boston, Providence and Portland (not Oregon). The Patriots are supposed to fly out of Boston this afternoon to Arizona for the Super Bowl. They’d better get a move on it. Seattle already arrived yesterday.

Media day is tomorrow. Oh boy. It’s going to be all about Deflategate for the Patriots and Richard Sherman running his mouth for the Seahawks.

I like having my Bluetooth keyboard for my iPhone. No lugging around this heavy computer. Time for me to get going.
