MISSING PERSON: A good friend of mine went missing in Tulsa. This appears to be a medical condition. If he was 8 years old the police would issue an Amber alert and go all out to find him. But if you are "too old" to be a child or "too young" to be a nursing home walkaway, you are not important to the system. I have seen this many times, it is wearing me down with the injustice of age discriminations. If you live in/around Tulsa - see my home page.

WAR: How many more die before the USA people understand we are at war? One not of our own choosing. 3,000 was not enough? Is a mushroom the only thing to get them off their bottoms and fight?

Band Good turnout at games. But at the first home Varsity game, the construction crew cut the main power feed at 1pm. School was closed. Power came on at 5:30. Tulsa Station KOTV was here for a special. We cooked 100 hot dogs at the visitor stand (seperate power) for them to give away. Talk about a stress filled day!

Now they broke the sewer and water lines. That just leaves the gas line to go. They also keep blocking access to the dumb waiter. Progess hurts. On the other hand, I WANT the new buildings. Auditorium, Science classrooms, Band room, choir room, etc. A 1925 building is not nice for the kids.

Kiwanis New portico on mini-golf course is "done". A roofer will do the shingles on Friday. We close for the season on Sunday. Just in time for the new president to take over. Still have to put in a new fence. Both of my employees quit early to take full time jobs. I wish them luck.

Computers: my printer (Epson) does not want to talk, just blink its little red light at me, so had to steal my old one back from my son (lexmark) just to get my reports done. XP is not helping. neither is Compaq.
