Ten years ago: Scott Roeder, an anti-abortion activist, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas. (Roeder was later convicted and sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 50 years.) Chicago police officer Anthony Abbate (ah-BAHT'-ee) was convicted of committing aggravated battery against Karolina Obrycka (ob-RY'-kah), a bartender half his size, after she'd refused to serve him more drinks; Abbate received probation.


Five years ago: Spain's King Juan Carlos, who'd led the transition from dictatorship to democracy but faced damaging scandals amid a financial meltdown, announced he would abdicate in favor of his more popular son Felipe.


One year ago: Bare-knuckle boxing matches took place in front of 2,000 rowdy fans at a hockey rink in Cheyenne, Wyoming; the event, promoted as the first legal, regulated and sanctioned bare-knuckle fight event in U.S. history, featured 10 bouts and was viewed by tens of thousands via pay-per-view.

Obit for a loon I went to school with but did not know very well.  One of the craziest obits I recall reading😀

Terry was born in Shreveport, Louisiana to Jacqueline Terry Greer and later adopted by his stepfather Joe Linton Greer. Terry was an immensely funny, creative, and wild man. Everyone would know he was around by his loud, unique laugh or the way he would yell curses about the most mundane stories. He was close to his grandparents, Roy and Mary "Sweet" Terry, and grew up adventuring on the farm with his grandfather which created a deep love for his land, animals, and the outdoors. He was a skillful artist and made a living as a master carpenter, eventually building a home for his family. He was a foodie before the term was popular and was an excellent cook. He also raised a lot of hell. He played the drums and always cranked up 70's rock n' roll. He was hit by a car, put in military school, and hitch-hiked from Louisiana to California. He married several times, crashed a motorcycle, collected guns, hated doctors, and loved booze. On his favorite mornings he watched the wildlife in his back field as the sun rose. He taught his daughters to dance to loud music, never take themselves too seriously, and never tolerate people who only want knock you down. He lived on the edge of the rules, fought inner demons, and loved as much as his big heart would allow until his death. If you ever met him, you would not forget. His wisdom and unique spirit will be deeply missed.

Had a great B’day, the weather was perfect for the boat trip. A little over an hour trip to the restaurant. Boy did the boat driving and his FIL and I sat in the back visiting and popping a few tops.  His MIL was on a girls trip in the Smokey Mountains.  Warden and DIL sipped wine on the front lounge seats.

Restaurant was excellent, started with my traditional birthday Grey Goose Martini, seared tuna and bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers, Caesar Salad then a nice rare Pittsburgh Style Filet Mignon.

A few more brews on the ride home where we topped the evening off with some homemade Caramel Cheesecake and Tawny Port. 

Sorry no after dinner cigar, after my bed time.
That sounds like a perfect evening. Glad you enjoyed it.
