I had never shot a handgun before (or an Uzi, for that matter), but I can now proudly say I can protect myself if necessary. And apparently I have Ian and Dad's knack for marksmanship. :) I have been declared the protector of the psychology department.

Monday I'm getting a shot in my back, some kind of nerve block, to help get rid of the pain in the foot and ankle. Hopefully that will help and I will soon be walking normally, instead of with a walker or rolling around in the wheelchair.
Thanks to everyone for your prayers - they have been answered!

If any of you did not see Sportscenter today, Barry Melrose came on to admit that this is the greatest NHL goal in TWO YEARS. Keep in mind, this was on the road in Phoenix, with only 22 seconds ago, and the game is tied at 3-3. Our fourth win in a row! If Colorado loses tonight and we win tomorrow, we are officially in the top 8 of the Western Conference and back in "the playoff hunt."
For the record, I had ESPN on at work today and watched this replay about 35 times.

Bring it on Uncle Carl/Bob/Steve/Michael C./Nick. Call me.
We had a show on New Year's Day get cancelled, but the one on Wednesday night went through without a hitch. We played a basement show at a popular spot that is on campus. Here's Rob our singer with Chuck the bassist in the background, and then a pretty good shot of yours truly. Mom, this time I wore two sets of ear plugs, one set on the inside and the red ones you see there on the outside.
Have a great weekend everybody!

I have requested adjoining rooms. The hotel has a pool and a "fitness center". There are no refrigerators in the rooms; coolers will be needed. There is a continental breakfast available each day. I assume that the "king" rooms will be reserved by: Randi and I, Bob and Robin, Carl and Donna, Steve and Cindy, Sean and Liz and Nick and Linda. I also assume that the "doubles" will be used by a combination of the rest of the gang. The hotel asks that you contact them at 1-412-380-4000 to reserve your rooms. I have reserved a "king" room for Randi and I and another room for Erin and the "ladies" that she will be bunking with.
This hotel is about 11 miles from Pittsburgh and Kennywood and I believe that it is off of the Pa. Turnpike. The lady at the hotel that I spoke to has a contact at Kennywood and will be checking on group rate tickets for either Friday or Saturday. (On a side note Robin has advised that Kennywood offers both group discounts for groups of 20 or more and also a discount for those of us who will be 55 and older by July-SORRY Donna).
The Pirates play throughout the weekend and we can discuss that once tickets go on sale.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Hope you all had a safe new year celebration.
It was a quiet one on Shad Court. Just Aunt Robin and I watching a movie ( the Illusionist - highly recommended) and looking in on Times Square.
Mike, please see the comments I left about Pittsburgh.
Talk to you all soon.
I hope everyone had a safe & awesome evening!
What were everyone's plans?
Me, I wasn't feeling well last night so I stayed in with a couple of bottles of wine, season 7 of The West Wing, & a dinner of pasta & veggies (I'm so healthy!). I also got to enjoy the LOVELY (note sarcasm) fireworks my neighbors just decided they had to set off....
Anyway, I'm at work for the day & as you can see (since I'm posting) we're REALLY busy....
Love & miss you all!
