Chili, NY 12:42 AM It’s not a bad feeling, sitting with your feet in a massager. I just got back from a night at the ladies house. I experienced my first pedicure. I’m not sure how it came about in discussion, but I said I’d never had one. I asked about what took place and what it was like. She ended up having a home pedicure kit. So I spent my night at a home spa. As I soaked my feet, the two female roommates took turns massaging each other with one of those Mr. Happy things you get for Christmas. Of course I stared intently at the two females ohhing and ahhhing. You dream...

Barnes and Noble What a day it’s been. It started off with some early morning writing and then the final 4 action packed holes of the PGA Championship. Congrats to Lefty, although no one made him sweat. More bogies than birdies. While eating breakfast today I made the call to Barnes and Noble, “I’m checking to see if the new Worthwhile Magazine is in…” After some keyboard crunching they came back and said, “We have it.” Sweet. I asked, “Who’s on the cover?” Could it be me? I asked myself. They said a guy named Stedman Graham. It didn’t ring a bell, but it obviously...
