Oh well, vacation's about to end

Tomorrow is first day back to work from vacation. I think I had a somewhat productive one, even though I didn't get as much accomplished as I wanted. I did however get about 14 of my photos posted on the Red Barn site. And three of my posts and two of my photos were published in the Northeast Wayne edition of The Post. And I got plenty of sleep the past week.

C'mon Cavs: The Cleveland Cavaliers being in the NBA finals brought memories of the first season that the Cavs played in the Richfield Coliseum, 1974-1975. The playoff chances of the Cavaliers went down to the last day of the season(they lost to the Kansas City-Omaha Kings that last game). The last home game their chances were still alive and they were scheduled to play the New York Knicks. The Coliseum was packed that night(I was there), and the crowd was noisy. I'm sure that Newsnomore was also in attendance, as he was employed there at the time. I bought tickets for myself and my younger brother, and the only seats we could get were one right behind the other. The most ironic thing about this was that the day I bought my tickets, unbeknownest to me, was the same day that tickets went on sale for the Elvis Presley concert.
My brother, who is epileptic, had a seizure that night, and I was very impressed with the response of medical personnel. I sent a letter to the Coliseum stating my pleasure with the medics and I got a letter from Nick Mileti, thanking me for my kind comments.

I was there as the crowd went wild. The man sitting next to me started shaking me, he was so excited. In short, the Cavs won and I couldn't talk for a couple of days afterward.

I am sure that there are those who can't talk today. Maybe some who can't hear either.

As I am going back to work tomorrow, I may not be blogging as much. But I was glad to be able to get this week of rest in.
