Yes, I Am.

Bourbon On The Rocks is back for Monday Feb-26-2018 and this is what Duke is yapping about.

* Duke is BACK after a 7 day facebook jail sentence for posting a picture of the Parkland, Florida shooter. He talks about why FB and Zuck kinda suck.

* Now the kids of Parkland are saying that the Sheriff is not responsible for the dept not following up with the shooter it is the Governor. Why are they saying this?

* Michigan roads are crumbling but it is NOT because of lack of money. Michigan in 2016 passed the LARGEST TAX INCREASE to fund roads. How it is being spent is the question.

In Memoriam, Edward LaDuke May-6-1937 Feb-19-1995

While it is on my mind……

I told myself a while ago that I would not focus on the day my Dad walked into eternity without saying goodbye. For some reason though this past week I have been thinking about this day as it approached more than in past years and usually the only way I fix these bouts is to write these things down. So here I go……..

Sunday, February 19 of 1995 was not the greatest of days as you can probably imagine.

It should have been just like any other normal day.

It started like any other. My Dad had the day off and early in the morning went to get a coffee and a paper which was ritual in the household. When I was home on these Sundays I would get the Sports section first and he would get the front page and editorial and then we would switch. Truth be told, I would have preferred the editorial section but he was at the top of the pecking order and that was just how it was.

He had not been feeling well for a while. Nothing that he would complain about but you could just tell. If he was asked about it he would just brush it off to being tired. I think we all knew better looking back, but at age 57 he was supposed to have a couple of more years left.

He never complained he just dealt with whatever was bringing him down.That was his way.

Had February 19th been like any other day like I sometimes imagine what he would think of the world today as his 74th Birthday would have been approaching. The things he would have marveled at and been so proud of. My sister and her husband raising two absolutely beautiful girls and doing Continue reading…
