What Do You See on People's Foreheads?

Today I learned that a man I really, really liked  "got his wings" on September 22, 2013.  His name was Rev. John E. Naus, S.J., a Jesuit priest who served the Marquette University community for nearly  50 years.  He was 89 years old.

La Mesa Oktoberfest - What A Hoot!!!

This was my first year "out on the street" at Oktoberfest, being stationed at the corner of La Mesa & Palm.

I loved seeing all the people passing by and as I played music from the 50's thru the 90's as well as German music everyone seemed to enjoy this. I could see people walking by and suddenly start "movin' & groovin'" to the music was a…
