Long time readers know that I, Cliverton, once went to school in Ohio. I am reminded of one brutal winter where I stayed indoors for three months and relied upon my girlfriend to bring the necessities to the dorm. She smuggled in the rum and herself. What a girl! She’s probably respectably married with children by now and good for her.
She loved to skate but I couldn’t do so much as stand up on the ice for more than a few seconds. That’s probably why we didn’t work out. 😉
My memories of freezing in the dorm were triggered by receiving Steve Proto’s Christmas YouTube broadcast. Steve is a professional musician and producer who moved to Barbados from New York City ten years ago. He works with local talent on a volunteer basis and as Marcus said of him in a 2006 post “It is always inspiring to see somebody helping others from the simple goodness of their heart.“
Merry Christmas to you too, Kid Nepro!
