The family watched with sadness as showering became like running a marathon. Folding laundry became too much.

This is a note from my mom to the world, a few hours after getting a single lung transplant on 2/14. She still had the breathing tube in, but wanted to share her joy and amazement. Mom’s recovering well, and should be out of the hospital in the next day or two.

In the grander scheme of things, someone had to give their life for this second chance so we are all beyond grateful. We honor the dead by living the best life possible.

And we’re going to do it live.

We’ve Moved!

To my faithful readers:

It’s been fun writing here at wordpress.com, but after contemplating the move for over a year (and finally learning how to do it,) I’ve migrated and hosted my own site.  I hope you’ll join me:

Iamrty.com

Things might look and feel a bit different, but we’re gonna keep the party going with the same content you’ve come to know and love.  LET’S GO!

Make it 4… (WANT)

The internal struggle of any remotely responsible shoe head is the fight not to buy more shoes.

More.

MOAR!

I declared I’d only get 3 this year.

With 2/3 of those already passed, was it really realistic I’d only get 3?  Jordan brand makes a lot of doodoo.  But there are 3 more kicks, 1 of which I previously owned but sold (used btw) have been unveiled since I made the edict.  Give me a break, there’s some real heat droppin!

The Jordan XII Playoffs:

I’ve had a real shift in my shoe tastes.  I used to HATE black shoes.  Now I’m sorta swinging the other way and hating primarily white shoes.  Maybe it’s seeing Larry David in light sneaks sneaks all the time.

eh

Or maybe it’s the fact I wear khaki’s more often these days and they just don’t always flow.

 

The Jordan XII Obsidian:

Wasn’t feelin’ em the first time around, so I won’t make that mistake again.

Jordan VI Olympic:

Ditto for the Ray Allen olympic kicks.

LRG’s in Emeryville

LRG’s latest skateboarding spot was filmed at Doyle-Hollis Park, an Emeryville skate-friendly park, and home of the ever popular Ryan Yokogawa annual Hoop-B-Q.

The spot features Karl Watson (the guy w dreads).  I ran into Karl in Seattle, and the dude is the happiest man on the planet.  His smile is always beaming and his positivity is palpable.  Nice to see him having fun just around the corner from my house.  Wonder if MikeJ had something to do with this…
