On the Anderson Ferry Originally uploaded by hjoew I like my friends. That’s why they are my friends. Plus I pay them.
I awoke especially early this morning and began checking friends’ blogs and was shocked awake. Why? I found this very sad news. Don McPherson, whom I had not seen in about four years, passed away a few days ago. Tears stream down my face as I write this. Despite the distance and our friend-of-a-friend friendship, […]
Alan, Kenny, Joe, originally uploaded by hjoew. Alan, Kenny and I went to Colerain High School together, class of 1992. Back then we were all very much involved in the Colerain (now Clippard) YMCA’s Leaders Club, a volunteer service group for teenagers. Being in Leaders Club and the many friends I made and re-made during […]
Send a JibJab SendablesÂ® eCard Today! When Melissa and I hit the town, we hit it hard.
God, we’re bad. Last night we lost 17 to zero, marking our fifth straight kickball game without a win. Our team – Kara Thrace & Her Special Destiny, named by Team Captain James Czar – has lost other games by as many as 30 runs, though we came close once and only lost by one. […]

But I have felt so lucky today – especially in light of what happened Sunday. Melissa – my beautiful, talented, smart, funny, thoughtful, caring, tremendously supportive, understanding and kind girlfriend […]
I think I must have walked by ex-Cincinnati Vice Mayor Jim Tarbell two or three times last night and did not recognize him. He was at the Cincy Fire Ball at – and to benefit – the Cincinnati Fire Museum. I nearly fell on the floor laughing when I realized in the waning moments of […]
At the Scripps Family Picnic (another way of saying “Post company picnic”) at Kings Island Saturday. After the cookout/ lunch/picnic/giveaway bonanza, my cousin, Marianne (in town from Grenada until Wednesday), and I met up with three of The Post’s five interns and headed for the world’s longest wooden roller coaster (and according to many roller […]
So, this “cat” I know has a blog. And every time I read it I think I’m going to wet my pants I’m laughing so hard. It’s like Toonces the Driving Cat, but instead it’s Paris Hilton – in the form of a kitty cat – who, like the heiress, is at the same time […]
