Some of you have suggested I toss my keyboard and monitor for reasons I shall not mention here, but you can guess. Well, if I were to do such a dastardly deed it would be sometime tomorrow between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Remarkably it will be at a church.

It’s definitely a happening with the One Nation Under God Motorcycle Ministry sponsoring an electronic recycling event. It will be at the First Southern Baptist Church parking lot, Nebraska (street, not state) and Riverside Drive. Bring your old monitors, computers, TVs, cellphones and even printers. The good bikers will take care of them for you.

I will admit I’ve been in that church a couple of times. The first to marry my gal, and the second for a surprise 30th anniversary where afterward I whisked her (and I) off for a duplication of our honeymoon.

A little bit of nepotism goes a long way. As in 92 years. A belated happy birthday to my father-in-law, Ted Sanderson. He turned 90 plus 2 this week. Now being married to my gal — the middle daughter of three — for 44 years, I’ve been a part of his life, whether he liked it or not, for about half that time. Boy, that’s a lot of numbers. Ted still gets up the stairs of the Elks Lodge every Saturday to say hi to the guys and every so often walks out with a little extra spending money.
