Innerbelt Bridge, Cleveland - 7-12-14
You may have seen it yesterday on National tv, the demolition of the Innerbelt Bridge in Cleveland and now you have the opportunity to see my version of Cleveland Bridge falling down. Yes, my #2 daughter, Donna, and I met up at 5a.m. and rode together to Tremont, OH, a Cleveland suburb to witness the event in person. Glad we did because it was fun being with a group of people of enjoyed the event.
Want to see what we saw? Well, if that was a big energetic "Yeah, I guess so, why not, I've got nothing else to do at the moment" type of answer then click on above link and off you go...............

Penny and I love our Cleveland Orchestra so Thursday evening, July 3, 2014 we went to enjoy the evening with them
at the Blossom Music Center. It turned out to be quite a memorable performance for me especially since Conductor
Schissel composed an arrangement of music played during the days of President Kennedy's funeral proceedings.
I never had an opportunity to talk with anyone who also marched in President Kennedy's Funeral Procession but comments made by Conductor Schissel during the evening made we realize, that probably most, if not all the participants, recall vividly what they heard that day of the Funeral. Interested in knowing? If so, click on link to take you back to November 25, 1963.

After the Blossom Festival Band performed, I purchased a CD of the Festival Band and fortunately Conductor Schissel was there to autograph it and write a message. We also had a short conversation and he was enthused to hear that I too reflect frequently back to sounds I vividly recall from November 25. . The Conductor certainly is an outgoing gentleman who is exciting to be around.

Greetings boys and girls:
Today we will be departing Yellowstone for Jackson, Wyoming and this showing will be the last of the Great Sky -- Montana --adventure we took this past May. Our hearty thanks to Jim Bastian for inviting us to Miles City, Montana to attend the annual Bucking Horse Sale festivities. It was a blast! I have a number of favorite videos and one of them now is the Bucking Horse Sale Rodeo. Being that close up to the action was thrilling.
I'm typing this at the breakfast table and Penny just came down and advised that she dreamed we were in Yellowstone and that I wandered off the guided paths and disappeared into one of the boiling mud holes that you will be seeing shortly. Ouch! But on a happier note, I'm still here, unharmed, and ready to show you the Grand Tetons...
So, remember the videos we saw on this journey? These...
