That’s What I Call Eventful

18 Oct

Man, this has been an eventful week. On Sunday, Necole and I woke up in Tucson; made a connection in Denver; and, returned to Nashville. After all of this time, airplane travel still amazes me. I am amazed at how far and fast we can go, and I am amazed that they can get the things off the ground.

On Tuesday, my stepdaughter had her tonsils taken out. Necole and I were both lucky that we were kids during the time that they didn’t do that. My older brother had his removed, but, by the time I came through, doctors were saying that it was not necessary. Apparently, it is back in vogue.

One thing that is necessary is for everyone to get a yearly physical. I got one on Wednesday, and it is not very fun. A physical includes getting poked and prodded in all kinds of uncomfortable ways. It is definitely not the Olivia Newton John type of physical.Physical

On Wednesday night, Necole and I saw The Eagles in concert. We have both seen them before, but this was my favorite one. The main reason was that she was with me. The next reason was that they put on a great show that traced their history. In short, they sounded a little Country-ish before Joe Walsh and a little Rock-ish after Joe Walsh.

The events continue as I go to the NASCAR race at Talladega with my brother and my nephews. I am not a big racing fan, but I will get my redneck on to spend a fun weekend with them.

    Glad the stepdaughter is okay.

    Not an Eagles song, but Life’s Been Good To Me by Walsh is one of my favorite songs.

      Thanks. He did that one and a few more of his own songs.

    Hope she’s doing alright. Do they still recommend lots of ice-cream after the op? As kids we used to be desperate to get our tonsils removed just so we could send copious amounts of ice-cream down the hatch

      Actually, they say it’s ok to eat anything that doesn’t have sharp edges. Some people like cold stuff. Some people like warm stuff.

        Hmm…ice-cream was our ‘incentive’. Thankfully, dad had better sense
