Congratulations on quitting smoking, gentlemen. I have a lot of respect for that.

My addiction is sugar. Today I haven't had any white sugar. I'm not going to give it up completely, but I will have to cut way down.

Around our community it is not unusual to see deer - often many. With the Sandusky River on the East side of town, adjacent to a golf course and a very large area for walking, the deer are practically tame; at the very least, not very scared.

Knowing that there are bears on the East and South East sides of Ohio probably makes this pretty normal.

Therefore, I was amused to hear someone say the Ohio equivalent to "Have a nice day" is "Watch out for the deer". I say it every time my adult children leave the house!

No bears - yet!!

Long before there was UK's Susan Boyle...
The good ol' USA had Kate Smith...



In the 50's and early 60's she closed her TV show or any performance where she appeared with it.

I will say back in the 70's the Philadelphia Flyers had Kate Smith sing God Bless America one night and the Flyers won and the place (Spectrum?) went nuts and she then continued to perform the song in all of its glory, as only she could.

TWO DEER STORIES...

For many years I aided C.Bowersox with keeping the football team stats at McKinley,
even making the trip from Grove City every week end from 1987 to 2010.

#1...

November - early morning team meeting a Fawcett Stadium, I was bringing supplies
for hot chocolate and donuts for the team/coaches. I am in route at 6 AM, and
turn on to Blake Avenue from 17th Street.

(Fawcett was across the street from the Pro Football HOF, there is an underpass
below I-77 that connect the HOF/Stadium complex to the Park system; the Park system
runs along the West branch of Nimishillen Creek and some of this heavily wooded)

Lots of high chain-link fence around the stadium and athletic fields not to mention
all the houses along the opposite side of the street.

As I turn the corner there is an eight-point buck scrambling on the black-top,
hoofs sliding for traction trying to find his way back to the park. No mishap
but it was close.

---

#2.

McKinley vs: Massillon game 2005. Picked up BGScott ( teacher in Dublin, long time McK fan,
his Dad was an admin at McK when Scott was young) and the AD of Dublin Scioto (a friend
of Coach Brian Cross - then @ McK). Driving North on I-71.@ 7:30 AM, following a Semi-tractor-
trailer. Crisp weather clear but cold, you could see you breath. We’re in my '97 Mustang
and the AD says "We could pass this Semi.". I don't, with-in a few minutes a deer in the
median decides to cross to the West side of I-71 but just then South bound traffic
startles it, the Doe bolts into the North bound lanes and the Semi hits it. The deer
literally exploded.

My only comment..."That's why I'm following the truck".

--- P.S. McKinley won ---

Often during the season sometimes when I was alone I would ride my Honda Silver-Wing
to the McKinley games, I would always stay just behind a Semi for this exact reason.

Not sure it was mentioned - may have been but I was surprised to see that Tony Joe White had passed away back in October.

White, who was 75, had a monster hit in '69 with Polk Salad Annie. When ask what genre his music fell into, White replied, "Swampy".

Polk is actually a reference to the bitter poke weed that poor (White's family included) boiled and ate while growing up. He said "Annie" was a composite of several girls from his youth.

White did farm work as a youth for his dad and started playing the guitar after hearing an album by Lightnin' Hopkins when he was fifteen.

He played all of the joints and honky-tonks across the south and remembered well the stages where chicken wire was in place in case a patron took exception with someone on stage.

After hearing Bobbie Gentry's Ode To Billy Joe, White began writing his own songs and in a matter of weeks had come up with Polk Salad Annie. "Annie" reached number eight and became a staple of Elvis' stage show.

He wrote one of the truly great heart ache songs with Rainy Night In Georgia, a 1970 hit for Brook Benton.

His moment passed and White retreated to Arkansas where he bred horses and fished. His career though, experienced a revival when Tina Turner covered four of his songs on her 1989 album Foreign Affair. Tina's album sold six million copies and the single Steamy Windows became an international hit.

This led to a new recording contract and world tours.

Like most on here around my age, I saw Tony Joe on The Smothers' Brothers. There is a great clip of him singing Polk Salad Annie on Letterman with Foo Fighters.

Rip - Tony Joe White - a solid part of the 60's, 70's and 80's as a performer and writer.

Just a heads-up for anyone who needs or wants one. This afternoon Mrs. OWK and I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody. The movie about Queen has been well received by moviegoers, hitting the number one spot at the box office with an estimated $50 million ($141.7 million globally). Rami Malek, who protrayed Freddy Mercury in the film, did a super job. I would highly recommend the movie to others.




ROCK ON!

LOL. I started letting my hair grow out after wearing it short for many years - a little dismayed to see I'd gotten older and it was coming in almost white.

It was just about Prince Valiant length when someone on our alumni forum logged in and posted, "Hey Z - Charlie Rich called. He wants his hair back."

Happy 2 Days After Thanksgiving, everyone!

Our oldest daughter spent 26 days in the hospital being treated for -- and thank goodness fully recovering from -- a mental illness, and came home shortly before the holiday. We were certainly blessed and very thankful this year.

There was a sad ending to the story, though. The turkey was dry.

Very glad to hear your daughter is home and convalescing, DP. That is definitely a blessing.

My wife's nephew and his family are in town from LA. They have tickets to The Game, and we are their chauffeurs today - got our dropoff and pickup points picked out already. Of course, they have to borrow parkas and toboggans from us, they don't usually have those items in their wardrobe, lol.

May everyone's day be filled with chips and salsa. Go Bucks!

There was a sad ending to the story, though. The turkey was dry.
Monclova Steve - Now that is a story for which to give thanks. Very glad that your daughter was treated and seems to be doing well. As for the turkey, well, they'll be other times for turkey that isn't dry.

Word has it that Bevo has been AWOL due to computer issues. You know he'll be glued to his TV for today's OSU-UM game. Although the Buckeyes have won 15 of the last 17 games, I'm not confident about Ohio State's chances.

ROCK ON!

Thumbs up

I thought AWOL stood for one of the new leagues - The Alternative Ohio League!

Yes, the computer has had me working off a lap top and a tablet. Don't care for either - too many big fingers.

Monclovas - That is great news! Hope the arrow continues to point upward!!

I have also had an abscessed tooth and I am getting it pulled on Monday. I just hope that doesn't make it worse. When the dentist went over the costs of implants, bridges, plates, etc. I said I couldn't see myself spending that kind of dough for this.

He said, "You probably have another 30 years! Really?!

Would take an upset today. I have seen more long td's against the Bucks this year than in the last ten years!

Basketball Bucks have quietly entered top 25 and continue to rough up the mid majors. Good test this coming Wednesday with Syracuse in town.

Again, daughter, mom and dad Monclova - continued blessings, strong mojo and good vibes in all your directions. Upper Sand. has a series of events starting next weekend every year called Home For The Holidays. Looks like you are living that literally!

Been sitting on the second part of the rock dance songs' quiz - will try to get that on this week. There will be a pre - announcement when it will be posted.

My wife's nephew and his family are in town from LA. They have tickets to The Game, and we are their chauffeurs today - got our dropoff and pickup points picked out already. Of course, they have to borrow parkas and toboggans from us, they don't usually have those items in their wardrobe, lol.

May everyone's day be filled with chips and salsa. Go Bucks!
Thanks, Zunardo. You're a great and compassionate friend on here. Speaking of......who could ask for any more than to be dropped off and picked up at the OSU-UM game!
What a guy! Yes, I mean you!

OWK,
I appreciate the good wishes. We feel like one of the lucky ones. Her illness came on quite suddenly (to us, anyway). Thank goodness she had moved back home after a divorce. She's been working 2 jobs for 2 years to pay off back bills , and all of the stress, lack of sleep and nutrition just caught up with her according to her doctor.
It's amazing how a well-adjusted (on the surface anyway), intelligent, nice person can morph into someone dominated by the voices she heard in her brain, causing her to not distinguish reality from fiction.
Equally amazing is how this same person, thanks to proper rest, nutrition, and medication can gradually repair the damage that had been done to her brain's pathways.
Yes, we're happy. She still is under a doctor's care, but at least we have our daughter back. There, for awhile, she was kind of gone.
We are ever so mindful, however, that there are many who don't have it as well as we do. Yes, we are quite thankful, but ever so attuned to the needs of others during this holiday season.
There are many reasons I love this thread. This "all for one and one for all" philosophy is at the top of the list!
Thank you.

Bevo,
My brother from another mother.......you can stop now after two salutes (Pshaw, do I really deserve TWO? -- Yeah, I do ).
There is NOTHING like an abscessed tooth to make a person climb the walls. O man, please let Monday come quickly! If you're anything like me with the dentist, you'll think "save the money; I'll figure out how to chew .
I'm thinking about ya'. Hope those internet blues get cured real fast!

I wanted to hit this last week but the aforementioned issues got in the way.

He probably made a quiz or two - I was saddened to hear that Roy Clark had passed away at the age of 85. We saw Roy burn it down probably 20 years ago in Tiffin at the Ritz Theater.

He was a musician in the Glen Campbell sense and he had the wide acclaim that Glen did. In reading his obit. I was surprised and then remembered that he was one of Carson's guest hosts.

Of course he helped host Hee Haw for 25 years; supposedly the net work suits detested the show. It was "corny" but the show featured many great musicians and a lot of old fashioned groaning jokes.

Roy was one of the first performers to open a place in Branson, Mo. Check out his version of Ghost Riders in the Sky on You Tube at his place in Branson.

Many times we have marveled on our journey here to discuss what an eclectic time the 60's were - especially the mid to late 60's. Roy scored a top ten hit on both pop and country charts with Yesterday (When I Was Young) in '69.

Roy first appeared on tv at age 14 in 1947 (71 years ago!) when he was 14. His first instruments were mandolin and banjo and he got a guitar at age 14. He toured briefly with Hank Williams as a teenager.

He always seemed like a genuinely nice guy and performed in a vast array and genres of music.

Gonna miss him!

RIP - a giant in the music business - Roy Clark.
