On Linda Tripp's advice Monica Lewinsky kept that dress from the Gap that had gotten "soiled" during her interlude with Bill in that condition had I been she I would have washed it. It's only been 109 years since the first mechanized flight and then it took only another 66 years for the first man on the moon and there's been nothing over the past 43 years so interesting that's terrible. When I was in San Diego I spoke with Dustin Hennessy who's one of the Republican Delegates who said that he and others were going to try to get the nomination for Ron Paul. I said is that possible he claimed it was. Dustin isn't wealthy and spends most of his money pursuing Paulian Ideals a Man of Principle much the same as my Readers, that Dusty is real good boy. 22 of the 28 Nevada Delegates vowed to support Ron Paul with 17 of them defiantly doing so despite Romney's Nomination. I'm going to vote for Gary Johnson who left New Mexico with a bil surplus imagine doing that in such a poor State.
Minnesota actually has over 14 thou Lakes. The Mississippi separates Minneapolis and St. Paul (the Missouri is longer) and I've been to them a few times. Once again I went into the State Capitol in St. Paul and went into the 2 Houses of Legislature and the Governor's Office then went to the nearby Cathedral of St. Paul which is a smaller version of St. Peter's in Rome. In Minneapolis I went to the Walker Art Center which features very impressive contemporary art and to the very large Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. I've been to the Mall of America and that one in Edmonton they're just big malls nothing more. I went to the Metrodome on April 22, 1988 as I recall where I saw the Indians set the Major League Record with 2 Grand Slams in the same innining the HR's flew out of that place. That evening I went to beautiful Target Field (2010) and saw the Twins beat the Angels 5-0 with Wunderkind Mike Trout (like Mickey Mantle) going l for 3 with a walk and chasing down everything in Center (Bryce Harper who I saw play JC 2 years ago has to control himself he's "19" playing a Man's Game he needs one of you young women to stroke his neck). To Kansas City and then back to Las Vegas via Denver (there l hour) and the end of my trip and We All Lived Happily Ever After.

Everybody is angry with me over McKayla that poor child, well, I have 2 broad feet and can stand a lot. I took the overnight to Chicago where I had been last year arriving at 5 A.M. I was lucky to get a room at 7 A.M. and 3 hours later walked all the way from Greektown to the very illustrious Art Institute of Chicago. Hey, they have Grant Wood's "American Gothic" in there which everybody likes, that's his Sister and their Dentist. In 1930 Grant Wood entered it in a competition at the Institute and it won 3rd Prize and they bought it. Up to Milwaukee where I toured the Pabst Mansion (1892) which had been the home of Captain Frederick Pabst the founder of the Pabst Brewery and later of 5 Archbishops. That evening I went to beautiful Miller Park (2001) whose roof can open and close in 10 minutes, place is like glass. There I saw the Brewers lose to the Cincinnati Reds 6-1 with Ryan Braun accounting for all the Brewers' scoring with a Home Run. Outside they have a statue of 2-time American League MVP and Hall of Famer Robin Yount who used to live very close to me near Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley outside of Phoenix. Wanting total anonymity in the desert Robin and Michelle had a large sign on their front lawn "The Younts."

W hen I was watching this past Olympics I never knew the Schedule I just turned on the TV and flipped between the Channels that had it. I happened to turn on the Tube when they were having the Women's Vault and I became interested in watching McKayla's as I had seen her on TV and thought that she was real pretty and I liked her hair then I read that she could go as high as the men and was apparently the Best Ever. While watching McKayla wait for her turn I thought that I was making her nervous (mind you this was several hours after the Event was over) and I turned away and didn't see her Vault. Afterwards I was wondering if I was partially to blame for McKayla not sticking her landing and have felt Bad ever since. If she feels that I had nothing to do with it she can tell me over pizza and Pepsi and take away that Guilt. I'm really sorry that I watched any of it at all I feel Terrible.....Oh, set me free, Little Girl. All you gotta do is set me free, Little Girl. You know you can do it if you try, all you gotta do is set me free, free, free, free.....

You may leave any comments worth reading. Recently a writer for the "Las Vegas Review-Journal" won an award for a story he had written about some guy whose Scrotum weighed 100 lbs. I donated my precious blood again and was told that if a man voluntarily has sex with another man even once in his lifetime that he can never donate blood, an unhealthy lifestyle. I followed Michael Dokes from the time he was "15," rest in peace. Claressa Shields only 17 won the Gold Medal at 165 lbs. a Great Gal she has a bright future. I felt sorry for the Russian Lady after the bout she knew she had lost and went over to her corner and cried briefly. She'd be hit flush with no noticable effect she was very strong. At Superheavyweight that Italian was ripped-off in favor of England's Joshua. It's been a hundred years since Jim Thorpe won Gold Medals in the Decathlon and Pentathlon which he had to return as he had been paid a miniscule amount of money for playing baseball......You, Sir, are the Greatest Athlete in the World......Thanks King..... At the Gym I go to the Manager cautioned me about saying "Ragheads" one of them overheard me and turned me in, I was talking to my friend, Sam, the one who used to play football for Va Tech, we talk too loud anyway you can have a conversation without having half the Gym hearing it.
Cleveland was founded in 1796 on Lake Erie and it quickly became a transportation hub on the Great Lakes which has 15% of the World's drinkable Fresh Water. I went to the World Class Cleveland Museum of Art which had a fabulous and extensive Rembrandt Exhibition, Cleveland has always been at the fore in the Arts. I saw the Indians play the Texas Rangers losing 5-2 on Adrian Beltre's pinch-hit Home Run in the llth. As a door prize they gave you a Chris Perez Replica Jersey which any other Stadium would be selling for $100 or more. Chris Perez himself a few days Denounced the Cleveland Fans for their weak attendance and rightly so, Indians Stadium is easy to get to unlike Kansas City's (they had the All Star Game there?) I walked there from downtown. Being a Cleveland Fan is an Exercise in Patience as no Cleveland Professional Team has won a Championship since the Browns beat the Colts December 27, 1964. I was outside the Horseshoe Casino which was to open in a few days they were running ads on TV saying that Clevelanders should be proud of their Casino and go to it. This National Mania for Gambling is very bad as many people can't handle it, like that guy in The Sopranos (I know my Luck is going to change).

I was hoping McKayla would win the Vault tell her that I want to have Pizza and Pepsi with her. I was talking to a friend in San Diego yesterday and he said that he and his family were on their way to Chick-fil-A. The Southern Baptists don't care what they say to anybody. They once had their annual Convocation in Salt Lake City and were going door to door seeking Converts. Once they had it in Las Vegas although their patronage wasn't really sought because of their reputation of coming to town with the Ten Commandments and a Hundred Dollar Bill and leaving without breaking any. During their stay a guy was walking down the Strip carrying a Cross. Ben Johnson had made millions before he was exposed at the 1988 Olympics of being on PEDs. Insiders knew it as he went from 15th best to the Best in the World, his face was puffy his eyes were yellow. Ben had brought international disgrace on the Canadian Public who had once fawned on him. A year later he was stopped in his sportscar at a stoplight in Toronto when a guy crossing the street recognized him pulling him out and beating him up chipping a front tooth....The Wages of Sin....I have a friend, Robin, from the gym whom I've known for many years who had taught Phys. Ed. in L.V. for decades, once I playfully slapped her on the back and felt as though I had touched a wall. Robin is a nice looking middle-aged woman and she likes Men getting all kinds all kinds. Recently she told me that this one guy wanted her to day a 3-way with another woman and she told him that she would never do something like that. He told Robin that she was Stuck-Up and she told him to Go To Hell and walked out......Watch your language, Dear....
Barbados to Miami I had had enough of the beach scene in fact my inner thighs were rubbed raw by walking in a loose wet bathing suit and I could hardly walk, I took a taxi to go a half mile. Greyhound to Atlanta founded in 1847 due to its importance as a Railroad Intersection. Burned by Sherman on November 14, 1864 during his Scorched Earth March through Georgia forcing my Ancestors to flee the City......These People are never going to like us the only way to defeat them is by making them fear us by making War Terrible for Them......Indeed, my Great-Aunt Sue's dog was named "Rebel." I had already toured the State Capitol, I had been to the Margaret Mitchell House the apartment where she wrote....and the accompaning Museum, I had been twice to the very impressive Stone Mountain the largest mass of granite in the World where there's the massive Carvings of Robert Lee, Jefferson Davis and Stonewall Jackson on horseback. In 1971 I was at Underground Atlanta during its Heyday when it was a large famous area of Nightclubs stopping in with a couple guys on our way back from Florida now it's just basically a small Mall. This time I went to the Reknown High Art Museum whose Permanent Collection is actually quite weak and I saw the Braves play the Phillies at Turner Field which is the 1996 Olympic Stadium. 3 Hours before the Game the Braves sell one dollar tickets for the upper deck and this is what I bought, a nice price for these Hard Times and not a bad seat. I also paid 2 dollars to see the very impressive Braves Museum full of Baseball Artifacts relating to the Braves and other Teams. This is the only museum that I've seen in all of Major League Baseball. Had me a Good Time for 3 Bucks.
