Where the cold front's sweepin' down the plain,
And the piles of sleet, beneath your feet
Follow right behind the freezing rain
We know we belong to the land,
But it could use some more salt and more sand,
That’s why we say…..WHOA!
We’re sliding the other way…YIKES!
We’ o........nly sayin’
You’re slick as snot SNOWklahoma SNOWklahoma SNOW-K-L-A-H-O-M-A SNOWklahoma, SNOW-K!

Who ya gonna call?

Talk about a major surprise as I open today's The Daily O'Collegian and find out a buddy of mine believes in ghosts.  It was in the paper, so it has to be true ... right?


I don't know how long the story will stay on their website, so let me give you the highlights here:

One of their staff writers did an article titled: Ghostly sightings keep staff, students on the lookout.  The article points our various oddities on campus, late at night in different buildings.


Then I get to this point in the article:

Training Lt. Leon Jones, a bicycle police officer on campus, said he was patrolling campus winter break in the late ’90s.


Jones said his partner noticed a single track of footsteps in the snow leading to a front door of the Bartlett Center, slightly ajar around 3 a.m. The Bartlett Center, like the other buildings on campus, should have been locked up for the holidays.

Jones said he and his partner checked every room.


“We did a thorough search of the place,” he said. “We were probably in there for a good two hours.”

When they got to the third floor, Jones said they heard a “loud scream and a giggle coming from the fourth floor.”


Jones said they hurried up the stairs, but the floor was empty.


He said he believes it was a ghost.


“I didn’t see anything, but that’s what I believe it was,” he said.


See, there you have it ... Lt. Leon Jones believes it was a ghost.


After reading this, I remember that I had a picture that I took of Leon from one of the stadium security cameras during this past football season.  I seemed to remember something odd about the picture when I took it, but didn't have time to really think about it at the time.


How did I ever manage to miss the fact that he was standing next to a sedan version of ECTO-1?:

New blog .... let's see if my mojo has returned

Actually, the blog itself isn't new.  When I first started blogging, I decided to register "ronking" with Blogger to have as a placeholder if I ever decided to start another blog besides this one.  Today was the day to start using it.


I recently acquired a new camera and wanted to go out and play around with it yesterday.  After just a little while of walking around, my leg started hurting and I got back into the car.  Instead of stopping the photo time, I decided to see what I could find while in the car.  I think I came out with a few really good shots.


The 'adventure' got me thinking (as scary as that may sound).  I decided to start a personal project that involves photography only from within a motor vehicle - primarily my car.  I hope to use this project as a future motivational tool when working with other amputees or future amputees ... especially ones that will have less mobility than I am lucky enough to enjoy.


The blog is named "Auto" Focus and can be found at I hope the wordplay of the title is recognized and understood by all visiting.


I have already posted images from yesterday's activities.

My rock band album cover

This is actually from a Facebook type of meme, but I thought I would share it here as well:




1 - BAND NAME Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random article”
or click

The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - ALBUM TITLE Go to "Random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - COVER ART Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

         ( is free online)


5 - Post it to FB with this text in the "caption" and TAG the friends you want to join in. (be sure to tag me, so I can see your creation)


I guess I could change step 5 to be:

5 - If you are a blogger and take the time to do this and post it to your blog, please leave me a comment with a link to your post.  I would really like to see the combination you stumbled across

I have lost my mojo...

... not that I really had any to begin with, once I stopped to think about it.


If you couldn't tell, I haven't been posting much lately.  The reason is most likely related to the Facebook-addiction, work, life and more work.


My muse has left the building!
