    Flying out of Des Moines Sat afternoon to Dallas/Ft Worth (where I'll probably get lost) then renting a convertible to drive to Abilene. Going to stay with some friends and see the sights. BIG steaks.... BIG beers....And BIG fun. My friend told me she has a surprise for me. If it's a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader with deep rooted daddy issues and a drinking problem it promises to be a great week!!!!!!

    My wife, her Uncle, Aunt, and a cousin are heading to Round Rock for another Uncle's funeral.

    He was a good, good man. 28 years in the Air Force, 66 year Mason, Shrine clown for 50 years, and a great husband for 62 years.

    He will be missed by many.

    Says all that is needed, to back up he was a good man. Every Shriner I've ever known, was all about helping others. Politics, race, religion, what have you, went out the window. Clowns lead the parade, both figuratively and literally. That great men, leaders in their community, would reduce themselves to buffoonery to elevate a cause, most of the time children, says so much about them.

    I give prayers to him, and regret your loss. This world is a little less, because he is not in it.
