April 14, 2009
Remember that 1960s TV show based on the premise that everyone on the planet has an identical twin somewhere in the world? I want to say Ben Gazarra (sic) was in it and every week they would have the same actor play both characters, one usually a hit man and the other an innocent patsy?

Well, I have often wondered what my life would have been like if my family had remained in Iowa. Well, a certain Robert Bell did stay in Iowa, Des Moines evidently, and as I watched this video of him, I was struck with how remarkably similiar our lives are (I raced motorcycles for a period in the 1970s) and virtually every racing metaphor (he spins out of control, he flips/heart attack) has a parallel in my own life:

Honkytonk Sue's Daughter?
Nora Burba contacted me about a new contest Scottsdale is promoting. Got another email regarding this today:

"Scottsdale is having a naming right for there "scottsdale cowgirl" amazing how much the style and it's look, look just like Honkytonk Sue images, just in case you have not seen this,

Update On Phil Spangenberger
"Phil called to let us know that he is home, the surgery went well and he is on the mend. It sounds as though he can now feel the progress he is making."

And finally, ever sit around and wonder what Kathy and I look like doing Sixties dances? Not really? Too bad:
