Seattle Still a Good Time Even Third Time Around

Skipped the Space Needle and the ballpark this time. After all, this was my third trip to Seattle within the past 12 years. Twice with my long-time partner, Heidi, and once with my with baseball buddy Joe. He and I flew in to take in two games against the San Diego Padres  and Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park/Safeco Field. Most recently (July … Continue reading → Read more of this blog post »

Zane Grey
“At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. Its like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And its not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away.”
Grey

Zane Grey
“Recipe For Greatness - To bear up under loss; To fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief; To be victor over anger; To smile when tears are close; To resist disease and evil men and base instincts; To hate hate and to love love; To go on when it would seen good to die; To look up with unquenchable faith in something ever more about to be. That is what any man can do, and be great.”
