For family

Mark Happy

At the request of a family member,
I added a happy photo.
I think the shirt will be appreciated too.

I was young once …

… and bald.


I’m in the process of digitizing some old photos. Right now I am working through a group that my aunt (Hi, Aunt Pat!) gave to me.

Not sure how old I am in this one – I am at my grandparents’ home in Grove City.

This was, and is, my happy face.

See you along the Trail.

Make a difference

Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don’t, then you are wasting your time on Earth.
– Roberto Clemente

Roberto_ClementeToday Roberto Clemente would have turned 82.

Tomorrow the world marks World Humanitarian Day.


Clemente was a great baseball player. He was an even greater humanitarian and human being.

I wear his jersey today as a reminder of his challenge to make a difference.

Feliz cumpleaƱos, Roberto. Te recuerdo.

My hero’s bat


When the hotel fitness center closed early,I took to the streets of Louisville for exercise.
On Main Street,
I trailed the Walk of Fame.
I sought,
and found
my childhood hero.
Recuerdo Roberto.

See you along the Trail.
