50 Years a Trekkie

Untitled photo

Last night marks the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Star Trek.  It premiered on September 8, 1966.  I watched a few minutes of that opening episode, but already had evening obligations to tour a cemetery with Dwight Moffit (more on that in another post.)  So, tonight, even though I’m on the road for a paddling trip, I’m going to hit the hotel’s wifi and stream that first episode, “The Man Trap,” and reflect on fifty years of Trekhood.

Hello from Ireland

However, I don’t have reliable Internet.  Haven’t been able to update the blog or post photos to Flickr.  I’m sure I’ll be catching up for weeks when we get back. The photo above is of a wedge tomb called Poulnabrone, located in the Burren.  It’s 4000 … Continue reading Hello from Ireland

Here’s a list of the ones I’ve already visited… Old Pickensville Pinckneyville Lone Star Fort Motte Kingsville … Continue reading Ghost Town Request

An Old Fashioned Blog

Laura was with me in Barnes and Noble when I lingered over the leather journals. Later she apparently read my blog poston the subject. Subsequently, I received a beautiful leather-bound journal for Christmas. As I wrote earlier, the temptation was to put the journal away and use it for a special project. In my heart … Continue reading An Old Fashioned Blog

Remembering Eddie

On Friday, June 18, 2010, Eddie Taylor lost his battle with cancer. Eddie was married to my sister, Beth. They have three children, Mason, Blair, and Phillip. Our friendship began out of rivalry. It was 1985 and Eddie had just started dating Beth. That year Newberry College played Furman, and beat them in the very … Continue reading Remembering Eddie
