one more house -


This next week, should finally be, when I move across
town to the east edge of Sapulpa. I bought the house
a few weeks back. However, with the fraternity reunion,
a trip to Colorado, being quite busy at work, and having
meetings about the restaurant, etc., as well as having a
few things done to the house first, I have postponed the
move a few times.

However, now it looks like I'm nearly ready. Many
boxes are already over there, as well as pictures, dishes,
etc. I will be scheduling a moving company for the
furniture, but just about everything else, I'm moving.
This way I'll know what is where, and be able to get
to those things I need easier, etc.

It's a good move. It will put me less than 5 miles from
work, rather than nearly 20. Plus it will take me out of
a high traffic area, and put me in a quiet neighborhood.

I'm ready. Now I just have to break it to the cats.

KAL's closes


Monday, August 13th, 2007, KAL's Southern Hills
Chop House closed. It was quite an interesting
venture, however, the numbers were not there to
support letting the losses continue.

The PGA was in town the week before, but it did
not give us the injection of business we needed.

Quite a learning experience.

Thanks to those that did make it in while we were

Several weeks ago I had quite an entertaining weekend.

Saturday night here in Tulsa at the Brady Theater, I
went to see Kathy Griffin. Though at times there was
some audio problems, she still came through loud and
clear. She's quite a funny lady, and really enjoys picking
on Lindsay Lohen and Brittany Spears. Not that they
don't deserve it. heheh.

The following day I drove to St. Louis. I met some friends
I'd not seen in years for dinner. Robert (formerly of Chicago)
and Vicci & Quenten. Robert, Vicci, Karen (formerly of
Racine, WI and now in the New Orleans area) and I used
to gather annually in Chicago in December for shopping,
dining, and lots of fun. This lasted several years, but with
Karen's move to New Orleans, and then Robert's move
elsewhere, it faded. Last year, Karen and Vicci made it
to Las Vegas over Labor Day for a planned gathering, but
I was unable to go since it was too soon after knee surgery.
Karen was unable to make this weekend in St. Louis in
person, so we called her during dinner to chat.

Then Robert and I went to the Kenny Loggins concert.
That is what really prompted the last minute get-together.
I found the concert online and he is one I'd wanted to see,
so I made it happen. I'm very glad I did too, as it was a
very well done concert, and perfect weather for the
amphitheater evening.

We are now planning another get together..... in Summer
2009 in Crested Butte, Colorado. I'm already looking
forward to it.
