A Most Uncertain Feeling

Before I go further, I should tell you that I will be co-hosting Writers Block this Sunday afternoon, from 3 to 4 pm, Central Time (1 to 2 pm, Pacific Time) on Naturally Autistic Radio. It's a monthly show (which will run the first Sunday of the month), in which writers and editors on the autistic spectrum discuss their work and how being on the spectrum factors into it. It's one of the programs on Naturally Autistic Radio, airing seven days a week. Find out more at http://www.naturallyautistic.com/radio-show/

I've been under a lot of stress of late. So little pay coming in, so much I owe (mainly for car repair). It's most frustrating and I wonder just how I will ever get through this.

I had two men's league games last Sunday (31 July) at DeSoto Park. I was an assistant referee for both matches and they went pretty good. No games on tap this week, but the youth season starts up just over a week from now. Looking forward to it.

Tuesday morning (2 August), I braved the heat to go to Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield, Missouri. "FIFI," the Commemorative Air Force's B-29 Superfortress, had flown in town for a few days. (It was headed back from Oshkosh, Wisconsin to its home base in Addison, Texas.) Also on display was a B-25 Mitchell, another World War II-era US bomber aircraft. I was able to get close to both aircraft to take photos (including the cockpit of the B-29), and someone took my picture by the Mitchell.

Wednesday night (3 August), I ran the IPMS/St. Louis Meeting at Thornhill Branch Library. Nothing much happened. Only four of us were there and there was little to talk about. (The dog days of summer, scale modeling version.)

This morning, my brother Rick and his son Alex came to town from Charleston, South Carolina for a few days. Good seeing both of them here for awhile. My cousin Karen and her son are coming here in a few days. Should be great; it's been a long time since I've seen her.
