 jim  Johns Last Day at Work
Today marked the end of his one year contract that was exciting, fun, and successful.
I watched as John walked down the catwalk, headed for his last shoe shine.
I slipped by his apartment complex and put a Leather car scent on his car door as a small reminder of our friendship.
I'm all alone now, and I'm in a spot where they may either keep me longer, or not.
Peter landed a contract in Delaware. Great going Peter!

 jim  Replaced the F150s actuators
AFTER 3 HOURS of CONTORTING my hands, I finally replaced both of my bad power lock actuators.
These are the doohinkees that cause your doors to unlock by the remote.
Ya gotta tear the doors apart to get to them.
So much fun!

 jim  Watched Sanctum
Very good movie, with a some what grim path. Cave divers lose their exit in the largest (unexplored) cave in the world.

 jim  Fiesta Day: (Ybor City) 02/13/2010
Fiesta Day has grown and changed since it originated in the 40's. This year it is planned for Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with plenty of action taking place from Seventh Avenue to Centennial Park. Entertainment and food, a parade, art shows, and cooking contest make Fiesta Day one of areas most widely attended events attended by both residents and tourists.

 jim  Orthopedic Surgery - Rotator Cuff
It's a helpless feeling, seeing my baby on Demerol and Percocets.
The sling she'll be wearing for 6 weeks is mammoth size!
Any, its done, and all we be great soon.

 jim  The F150 was Burgled
They got my Canon camera, the new lense and a new camera bag. Its a fluke, me leaving it in the truck (out-of-sight).
Guess they liked my cheap GPS unit. They didn't take the power cord. My truck sits high, and this is an upscale area, so its amazing they picked on my truck.
On the Plus Side
I didn't like the Canon. The camera with its long lense was bulky and stuck out. It was next to impossible to get a candid shot of people.
Someone would always be snearing at the camera in pictures of crowd, and forget about taking shots on a beach.
Serials: Canon EOS Rebel T1i. EOS 500D. $840.

 jim  Loggins/Cross - 02/1/2011
Tuesday, 8 p.m. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater. $45-$85. (727) 791-7400.
Dismiss this declaration as hyperbole if you must, but Tuesday night's Kenny Loggins/Christopher Cross concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall could be the musical highlight of 2011 in Tampa Bay. Snicker if you want, but "yacht rock" isn't a farce; it's a soothing, mental balm that wraps around you like a warm blanket. Look for a night of non-stop hits from their '70s and '80s catalogs. Cross will open with a slew of heart-mending ballads including Think of Laura, Sailing and Best That You Can Do followed by the prickly Ride Like the Wind. Loggins will crank things up further with Footloose, Danger Zone and This Is It. And just when you think your soul can fly no higher, Kenny will come crashing down, leaving you sobbing and vulnerable with the wrenching Return to Pooh Corner. Steve Spears
