I did it! I got through the weekend. I am a beat down dog, but I am still breathing. DJ'ed a great wedding on Friday night. They danced to everything up untill 11:30. Saturday I did a radio broadcast at the Boo Wow walk to benefit the local animal shelter. We helped raise 35 thousand dollars!!! Then Saturday night I DJ'ed a wedding till 11 pm. It was not as much fun, but they said they had a good time. Sure had some good food too. Then Sunday I introed a country concert and did a remote. I was so tired that I slept through the Indians game seven with the Sox. Guess I did not miss much. Dang it anyway...why cant we ever win it all?

Got the painting done at the station and now have money to have a tree removed from our side yard. It is dead and it's going to fall on our house if I don't have it taken down. Should be within days. Guess what....I have a wedding to DJ this saturday too. Wish me luck.

Love Uncle Dan

Hello all. Busy weekend coming up for the old man. Two weddings to DJ, one country show to MC and a radio broadcast at the Boo Wow walk. The Boo Wow walk is a pet trick or treating event that raises money for the Ash. Co. Animal Proctetive League. Last year it raised 24 thousand dollars. The weather will be nice, so we should really kick butt this year. Family is healthy and well and we are getting ready for winter. Time soon to put away the summer outdoor furniture and get my orange tractor ready to plow some snow! Oh crap....did I say the swear word snow? I guess I did. We also bought a treadmill and Robin and I have been exercising every day. I hope we can continue to burn those calories and get stronger.

It's fall and the grandkids are back in school! I love the first day of school. I love watching the girls get dressed up in their new clothes and I love to see the anticipation in their eyes. I sure love them. Haley made me a card yesterday that said "I love you because you are my favorite grandpa." Talk about warming your heart. Lots of work to do. I have my daily radio show, remote broadcasts all over the place, weddings to DJ this month and offices to paint at the radio station. I am getting toooo old to do this much work. Also this week I crept into our bedroom and found this small creature curled up in our bed watching our TV.

Wow! Where did the summer go? It's back to school time for the kids,time to dig out the sweatshirts and jackets and figure out how to find money for Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, just yesterday I saw a store with CHRISTMAS merchandise out on the shelves already! It's only AUGUST!!!! When I was a boy..(here comes one of those stories)..there was no Christmas stuff in the stores until after Thanksgiving. It was better that way. It was something to look forward to and it was exciting. Having it on the store shelves too early wears out the mood too early.
Gonna be a busy month. I have three weddings to DJ for, a stack of radio remotes to do and Allstate insurance to sell and maintain. Wish me luck.
Still no help on my chronic sinus condition. I sound a bit congested and have some drainage. Still two specialists have no idea what is causing it. I had an alergy test and it was all negative. I also have to go to a another specialist this week to check my ears concerning a recent hearing loss. I will keep ya posted.

It was a rain-out! Dang it! Robin and I went to Michigan International Speedway for the race weekend and we only got one good day out of it. We saw the Busch Series race on Saturday and the weather was perfect. Sunday, different story, rain, rain and more rain. It never stopped from 8:30 Saturday night until late Monday. Usually they run a rain delayed race on Monday and we would have gone back to see it, but it was rained out as well. I have had some darn bad luck at going to races and running into rain or snow. Despite that, we met some nice folks, had some laughs and slept in a super-comfortable king sized bed. Looking forward to going to Richmond Virginia for a race next spring and back to Michigan next August.
