I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

Blogspiration tank on empty.

You know what inspiration is - well, blogspiration is thinking of something worth writing. My tank is pegged on empty tonight.

It's been a nasty few days. Our car died on us Wednesday afternoon as my wife came back from her Quickbooks class. We had to have it towed to a mechanic we trust, and then have over $600 worth of work done. There's still a problem, but the car's drivable. Jean missed two days of school, and since she's taking an accelerated class, it's going to be hard to make that up. To top it off, we had a cold front move through early yesterday, and both of us felt like we were in our nineties. I didn't feel better until mid-evening, and didn't get anything done on my novel. Today's a better day, and I got another chapter finished. I need to write a chapter a day for the next twelve days to reach the deadline in time.

I still need a couple of readers, if anyone's interested.
