On Riding My Wheelchair on the Street. Rant 2 (of 4)

So February continues to show its nastiness. We’ve had some not terribly significant snow but enough to be a pain in the derrière for me.

A tribute to Duke

The guy who was my pastor for the longest period of time in my life has died. It was a few weeks ago now but it’s taken me this long I guess to process some things. There have been a few occasions lately that have really brought him heavily to mind; especially when we were listening to some guitar music the other night. He was such a great guitar player and very diverse in his musical interests.
