More Dreams

Last night was another dream. In this one April and I were contestants on a competition show like The Amazing Race. The task fell to me to perform a dance, but I could not do it. I kept getting more and more frustrated. That frustration has followed me all day. I've been coaching Thomas's indoor soccer team for about three years now. I wanted to have them practice shots on goal because I felt that was what was lacking last year. I still enjoyed last year. We did five tournaments and made second place in three.

Nebraska Historical Markers

I drove to see my son play in a tennis tournament in McCook. It was a little farther away than I expected so I didn't get to see his first game. He did win second in the doubles. 

The tournament also ended earlier than I expected. On the way back I decided to stop and take in some of the historical markers I always pass by on highway 26 between Ogalalla and Scottsbluff.

This is a sod house in Ash Hollow outside of Llewellyn, NE, 

On the other side of town there was apparently an Indian massacre. It was called the Battle of Blue Water.

Some markers for the Mormon Trail.

This was just south of Bridgeport.

Good bye, Mazda MPV van

About a month ago, Rachel was picking up Jan in the van. She left it in the driveway. It was halfway inbetween the two doors. The next morning Patrick was in a hurry and backed the Taurus into it, denting the doors on the left side. I took it to a body shop and thier estimate was around five thousand. The insurance company said this was more than the van was worth and totaled it. Searching around April found a Ford Explorer in Denver and we went down last weekend to get it. This morning someone picked up the van.

Dream or Real?

Last night I woke up rather voilently because I thought I heard someone banging on the front door then repeatly hitting the doorbell. It takes me more than a few seconds to get out of bed now because of the CPAP machine which had been knocked to the floor. April and I went to look out the front window and we did see a car. No one else heard the knock and Becca did not bark as she normally does when someone knocks. So was it real or not? I don't know.

St Louis

I took a business trip to st. Louis this week. I arrived a day early and walked the Katey trail down by the Missouri river. It an old rail line converted in the 80's. Coming from Nebraska it was strange and wonderful to see so many trees.

Patrick Tennis

Patrick had a tennis match last weekend in Gering. It was nice weather. I took a few shots.

My Android phone just went dead in the middle of a call. I do not know why. I thought about opening it up and popping the battery out, but the case bent a lot when I tried and I was afraid I might break it. I brought it to the Verizon store and popping the battery is exactly what the guy did. I am eligible for an upgrade in December.

I watched a review of Amazon's Fire phone. The consensus is that it's a good for for 2010. Since this is 2014, not a lot of people are impressed. Apple released their AppleWatch (Iwatch?) this week. Again, not a whole lot to be impressed with.
