It’s 11:40 PM. Jen left for Tampa about half an hour ago. She’s driving there and spending the night at the Carswell’s. They said she could leave her car there and take a taxi to the airport. She came over around 8 and we spent good time together. We laughed and talked and played Whomp […]

An Interview
November 26th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

It seems like forever since I’ve written. I’m trying to keep a more positive attitude but, last night, I was feeling really weird, shake and queasy and as if my blood was racing. I called the doctor and he said it didn’t sound too serious, but to call dr. in am. I have an appointment […]

Self Motivation
November 16th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

Saw Harry Potter with Jen today. They did a great job! Practically every scene was exactly as I had pictured it while reading. Nothing – nil – cold stop in the job search. Sent out one resume but really don’t anticipate any response. I’m feeling kind of desperate. I know I have to make some […]

And they laughed in all the right places.

Long day. Went to Barbara Peburn’s brother’s funeral with Jen. It was in Deltona. Barbara said I was a good friend for going all that way. Then she mentioned later that Jen and I were good friends. I think she doesn’t have a clue how much Jen and I would do for her. It’s funny, […]

Phone Home

Early in November of 2001, I emailed mom a link to an article at about the Gators. I wrote, “Check it out! ESPN is currently predicting a Miami / Florida match-up in the Rose Bowl!!!” She replied on November 14, 2001, at 12:31pm:   Hi, Love, Tres cool!!!!!! Florida is simply looking like the […]

A Great Idea
November 10th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

Gators won big over South Carolina yesterday. I made Jen’s veggie chili, and she and Mom & I watched the game. It was a great one! Today we all went to the Gainesville Festival & Craft Show. It would have been great, but I am so out of shape, I could hardly manage a couple […]

Missing Salty
November 9th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

Betsy Shenckman said they were hoping to make a decision by today. But she didn’t call. I hope they didn’t call Jim and get a negative reference for me. Or maybe it’s good news and she’s waiting until she can get me more money. Missing Salty. Cleaned out one of the places where she got […]

Salty is gone. It turned out her kidneys were failing. We tried pretty heroic measures (sub-cutaneous fluids 2cc a day, medications), but she got worse. She hadn’t really eaten anything or kept anything down since about 5 days ago. But she was still smiling. And, then, she started laying around, almost out of it. If […]

Nana Moves In
November 4th, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

David is back in L.A.; he sent us each a postcard — sounds like he had a really good time. Couple of bad days with Salty. She threw up at least twice yesterday and once last night. But her wound looks better. She’s just sort of laying around today. I put some food near her […]

Job Hunting
November 1st, 2001 @ 12:00 pm

When I got home from seeing Susan yesterday, there was a message from Peggy Mathes at CCR. I was heading there anyway to drop off my application, so I stopped in to see her and she offered me the job at $35,000. Then she said they wanted to know if I would move to Palatka. […]
