I am once again in the process of moving. I am pretty slow at it because I tend to look through all my numerous possessions. Today I was looking through a journal that I kept back in the 80s. May 21, 1989 I wrote, "I want to be the type of guy that when people see me walking down the street they say, 'Now there's the next Tarzan.'"

Glass Cabin

A gift from my pal Laurie. Not my sister Laurie. She didn't give me a gift.

Political corner

People in Murfreesboro Kentucky do not want a mosque because the muslims hate them because they are Christians so they would like to pre hate the muslims because the muslims are gonna hate them anyway. Something to that effect. Also I heard (on the radio) one lady yell, "Islam is not a religion!" You can't argue with that except by saying, "Yes it is!"

Some also expressed fear of Sharia Law. Hmm. No wonder people think people in the South are stupid. But how does that explain people in New York? No wonder people think Americans are stupid.

Summer's over

Summer is officially over. Not meteorolgically over, just officially over. Summer ends with the Dean's meeting at school every year. The Dean ends summer. It is always at this time of year that I start thinking in earnest about hiking, camping, boat building, cabin repairs, etc. I should be thinking of syllabi, tenure, football season. Not football season. I do not ever have to think about football if I don't want to. But our team, the Bucking Broncos, is one of the best in the land. I do like horses.
