  1. A Little Too Serious.

    I don't mean to be a downer, but I have a serious Blog entry today. I just got a call from my brother; my grandmother died this morning- she died of Alzheimer's Disease. As we geezers get older, we'll probably all face something like this soon. Some of us are gen-x'ers who have older grandparents, and some of us are even baby-boomers who may have parents in this stage.

    I thought my story may help others who may be seeing early stages, or even some who are about to face this terrible ...

  2. Learning Music

    I'm 37 years old and taking music lessons - it feels a bit strange (or at least it did at first). I decided to attend a recital after playing for six months. When I asked for a program, the recital administrator asked "Are you Kirk's father?". Hmm - This must be mostly kids here; I hadn't considered that.

    It's really not a big deal though - I'm actually kind of used to not fitting in. That's become my style. I can be comfortable in situations that should be uncomfortable. ...

  3. Fast Cars.

    The other half of my blog. Some Geezer Gamers members may have seen my post on the old site when I was considering purchasing a classic car. Well I did. I ended up going with a 1977 Corvette, but I probably should tell the back story.

    The WAY back story. What makes someone "A Car Guy?" - I have no idea. When I was growing up, we always had a pick-up truck. Dad never mentioned or noticed fast cars. I certainly wasn't surrounded by them. Even so, I somehow became interested. ...

  4. I'm Probably Boring.

    Blog entry #2. I wonder how many blogs actually have followers and how many are private journals posted in a public place; just an internal dialogue that leaks out onto the keyboard. Note to self... We're out of hamburger.

    With that, I don't have much to add - not a terribly eventful, or insightful day. Work at the office, work on the forum and then to a wine tasting (have you ever been a designated driver at a wine tasting?). It was more about a mentor program that I'm involved ...

  5. Fast Cars and Loud Drums

    Why not try a blog? Obviously I am a gamer, but I like to think of myself as a Renaissance man. Among other things, I am an amateur drummer and a shade tree mechanic (actually more of a car detailer than a mechanic, but close enough).

    This entry is more about the "Loud Drums" aspect of my life. I played my first gig on the weekend. My friend's band was playing, and their drummer couldn't make it. After the first set I offered my services. Over the break we set up and ...
