A Dying Tooth
Next I related the story of what my wife and I are doing for Hayden for his eighth birthday. We’re taking him to Brainerd, MN to see Paul Bunyan. There’s a large talking Paul Bunyan up there that my folks used to take me and my siblings to see a few times back in the day.
He’s pretty cool. I describe the visits back in the day and the most recent visit in which I brought Amy to meet Paul in the summer of 2003. She had never been there before and she was pregnant with Hayden at the time.

Memory Is Not Video Tape
Despite the claims of some hypnotherapists, memory is not video tape. Memories are very malleable. People are very capable how remembering themselves being involved in an event that they had no part of and I talked about a former coworker’s misremembering something he that happened to him, but it happened to me.
I brought up the irony of those decrying their lack of freedom of speech while using their freedom of speech to make the complaint. I used the example of The Clash’s song “Know Your Rights” from their last real Clash recording, Combat Rock.
Movie Recommendation: The Shootist (1976)
John Wayne last film and it’s a good one. He plays an aging gunslinger who lived his life by his own principles. Early in the film, he learns he has cancer and that he’ll die a painful death, probably in bed. It’s suggested that that’s no way for a man like him to die. So, does he die in a sick bed or in a blaze of glory. It’s John Wayne, what do think?
