My RMS Titanic Boarding Pass

Posted by LOTGK on April 12, 2012

RMS Titanic Boarding Pass

In October of 2010, my wife Patty and I found ourselves in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Driving down Highway 441 we spotted the Titanic Exhibit. It was almost impossible to miss. An almost life size replica Titanic ship jutting out into the highway including iceberg. There are hundreds of actual Titanic relics salvaged from the wreck and an authentic replica of the grand staircase and hallways and state rooms.

When you arrive, the workers are dressed in White Star period costumes. Captain Smith was very entertaining indeed. As you enter the attraction, each person receives a boarding pass with a name from one of the original passengers with a synopsis of whether that passenger survived or perished.

One of my relatives, whose first and last name is the same as mine, was aboard the Titanic but perished. My relative was in third class, as was all the Irish folk coming to America to begin a new life. As an added bonus, my loving wife Patty called the museum ahead and asked if perchance I would be able to receive my relatives boarding pass instead of a random passenger boarding pass. Of course she was able to finagle this without my knowledge.

Imagine my surprise as the White Star Line employee handed me my boarding pass and I saw my own name on the ticket. I had the boarding pass framed. It is the one pictured above with my name blanked out. It was such an odd feeling to see your name on the boarding pass knowing your relative was on that fateful voyage.

And yes, my relative was a hero helping women and children get through the locked gates below deck to the precious few life boats. Alas, my relative perished in the disaster.

Shot Of Vodka At Age 6

Posted by LOTGK on March 21, 2011

Way back in the 1960’s when I was a lad, my parents used to bring all the kids, (There were 7 of us, me being the youngest) to grandma’s house for a visit. Actually, it was more of a drop-off now, Mom and Dad would stay for a minute and then off to go shopping or some other important business matters. (Like go and make more kids) (Not a lot of private time in a house full of 7 kids)

Anyway, my grandmother Veronica was from Ireland, (Both sets of grandparents were from Ireland but that’s not the point here) and every Saturday she would prepare us traditional Irish meals for dinner. Now I’m sure grandma was an excellent cook, however, I was not accustomed to such cuisine. I was more of a meat and potatoes kind of kid. Blood pie (Yes, sounds exactly as terrible as you think) was not my cup of tea. Even her dog, Chrissy, wouldn’t eat the food I attempted to sneak to him from the table without grandma looking. Forced, I would eat as much as I could and move on to playing in the basement of grandma Veronica’s house.

The basement was my haven. Grandma had it decorated like an old-time Western saloon. Veronica called it a Pub, but I thought it was a saloon. Irish, American, Pub, Saloon, same thing. It had swinging doors, a full bar, counter, bar stools, and just about every kind of bottle of alcohol you could imagine. (Grandma Veronica was a heavy drinker and smoker)

The basement was also the place grandma read her magazines and made her phone calls to the local radio talk show host to set them right in their opinions. Veronica would always have a glass of something by her side all the time.

That one afternoon, after playing hard, I was sweaty and thirsty. I saw grandma’s mini glasses (Shot glasses) on the bar counter filled and asked her if I could have some for I had a powerful thirst going on. I assumed the liquid was 7-Up or some other clear soda pop. Grandma looked up and sternly told me that I could not, that the drink was for adults, not children.

I pressed harder. (Pretty please grandma thirty times in a row usually did the trick) After the 30th time, Veronica acquiesced and told me I could have one with one condition. Being thirsty I immediately agreed. Veronica poured me a drink from a clear bottle and then told me to drink it all as fast as I could, all in one gulp. (That’s how the grown up people drink it)

I grabbed the double shot glass and in one quick motion, gulped the drink down. Damn! It tasted like gasoline. Approximately three seconds later my tongue was on fire. The flames quickly spread to my mouth, teeth, throat, and then to my stomach. If it were possible, my ears would have been letting off steam from the heat my body was producing. I started running around in circles screaming and yelling hoping that somehow the flames would subside. They did not. (I seriously felt like my hair was on fire)

Veronica calmly walked over to where I was doing my little Indian dance and gave me a cookie and told me to eat it. I was skeptical of the cookie for the last thing grandma gave me set me on fire. However, Veronica insisted. I ate the cookie. Grandma then told me to get a drink from the water faucet. I think I had two gallons.

After I calmed down, Veronica told me about alcohol, and that only adults were allowed to drink it. She also told me that from that day forward, any time I had the urge to drink alcohol again, I would remember this day and how it tasted.

And grandma was right. I still recall that taste. That is one of the main reasons why I do not drink at all. There, you have now met an Irishman that doesn’t drink.
Alas, if only Veronica would have taught me the same lesson with blood pie.

Vikings Tarvaris Jackson’s Theme Song

Posted by LOTGK on December 12, 2008

vikings saints preview

As a Viking fan, although I don’t like him, I am hoping that head coach Brad Childress can pull the team together and guide them to a winning season, to the playoffs, and dare I say it, a Superbowl victory.

This is his third year as head coach, coming off a 6-10 rookie year and an 8-8 second season. So far this year, the Vikings are 8-5 and with a victory Sunday against the Cardinals they will solidify their hold of becoming NFC North champs.

Tarvaris Jackson, unceremoniously benched after week two of this season for his poor performance, stepped back into the spotlight last Sunday in the second half of the Detroit game. Jackson had a stellar performance with a come from behind victory. His stats for the half were 8-10 for 105 yards and a TD pass racking up a 143 quarterback rating.

The planets are aligned. The season is written for success. Great epic stories are on the verge of being shouted atop the mountains about these great marauding Vikings. Many songs wait to be sung out loud of the adventures and victories of these modern day Vikings. The Grassy Knoll Institute offers the first of many songs for the Vikings 2008 season.

Sung To The Traditional Irish Tune, Danny Boy.

Oh Jackson boy, the Vikes, the Vikes are playing,
From turf to grass, and through the NFL.
The summer’s gone and all the plays are counting,
‘Tis you, ’tis you must play and I must cheer.

But come ye back when the game is on the line,
Or when the field is hushed and white with snow.
‘Tis I’ll be here in shadow or in sunshine,
O Jackson boy, O Jackson boy, we love you so.

But if ye gaze and Rice and Bernard are covered,
If you get blitzed, and blitzed you well may be.
You’ll see and find A.P. in the open,
And pass a winning TD there for me.

And you shall feel, though slow, the media turn,
And all the wins shall warmer, sweeter be.
For you will grow and seek for what we all yearn,
And I will cheer and wait until we win it all.
