He is back home and doing okay

My little guy Buttercup is back home after an eventful couple of weeks. This all started a couple months ago when I noticed changes in his behavior. I took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed as being Diabetic. Fast forward to last week, and I was finally able to start him on a medicine that he did not react well to.

So a couple of trips to the doctor later, on Friday night this past weekend I saw he was really doing bad. I took him into the hospital this past Saturday where he ended up staying 4 days until being released to come home this afternoon. He was getting into Ketoacidosis which is fatal if not treated quickly. I have already lost one cat to that, so I was desperate not to have it happen again.

Luckily, I got him to the hospital in time. He's now home, on some medicines and looking to schedule a follow-up appointment with his primary care doctor. 

I do have to say a BIG THANK YOU to MedVet Hospital in Copley - they did an EXCELLENT job with him as well as keeping me informed twice a day! Always watch those fur kids carefully...they aren't able to tell you exactly what is wrong.

Wrasslin' Wednesday

WWE Clash At The Castle is on Saturday at 2pm from Scotland!

I have my kilt ready to rock on Sunday for the replay after The Country Fest Weekend!

Damian Priest vs Drew McIntyre

 Judgement Day is banned from ringside in the World Heavyweight Championship match.  You know they are gonna show.  Drew has to win in Scotland - I would say... (Does CM Punk play into the decision?)

Cody Rhodes vs AJ Styles 

This is a poor match-up, I think.  All the heat is on Rhodes.  There is no way he loses the belt to AJ Styles.
Sam Zayn vs Chad Gable

Intercontinental Championship deserves to stay with Zayn he has been entertaining.  Gable going all Alpha and treating the Academy as trash they are going to turn on his at some point.  I don't think it will be at the Clash of the Championship but something is brewing...   I think Gable claims gold in Scotland.

Bayley vs Piper Niven

Niven is stepping up her game and returning home.  I think there will be a great fight put up and Niven's Tag Team Partner Chelsea Green will entertain be a part of the pinfall...  But Bayley is just hitting her Championship Stride...

Bianca Belair, Jade Cargill vs Shayna Baszler, Zoey Stark vs Alba Fyre, Isla Dawn

No doubt Biana and Cargill will retain...  I think the only way the lose is they pin eachother.  Or someone returns to challenge???

Big questions will the Wyatt's Show Up?  There has been plenty of blips and QR Codes on both Raw and Smackdown...

Will Bloodline make any noise they have been invisible on Premium Events since...

And will anyone make a return or show-up...

Enjoy the event and remember these are just my guesses... no real science or insight is involved..   I have Wrasslin' Wednesday every Wednesday before Premium Events.

Checking out a new spot!

To begin, can I ask one big thing of you? When you go fishing, please don't litter. 

You see, I went to the Mogadore Reservoir yesterday to do some fishing, and the area is just gorgeous. The weather was perfect, the water was blue, and it was all-around peaceful as I followed a narrow trail down towards the shoreline. Vibes were good until I came upon the spot and found myself surrounded by littered trash. 

I love fishing, but this kind of behavior I cannot stand. 

That aside, I wanted to ask what the word is on fishing east of Akron. Yesterday, I didn't even get a nibble, and I'm curious where you go and what you're casting with. I'm only familiar with the Portage Lakes, Turkeyfoot and Nimisila specifically. 

330-370-2000 is the WQMX studio line (sponsored by Toth Buick GMC) and the best way to connect with me here at the station at any hour. Drop a message and help a guy out! 

As always, thanks so much for reading this blog. I'll be at The Country Fest these next few days, so keep it tuned to WQMX, and we'll catch up here next week.

Just A Thought!

So the other day, I was sitting around and thinking about football uniforms?  I know this is what kept me out of big schools...

I think the Browns should have an alternative uniform with fluorescent hunter orange jerseys, shoes and helmets.  Then a brown camo line on the helmet, numbers and pants....  Wear them in hunting season. 

What do you think?   

Anyway speaking of uniforms wear those "Send Me Backstage Shirts" to The Country Fest!!!  This year is going to legendary and so many artists doing fun things!!!   Let's Get The Party Of The Summer Started!!!!  Still can grab tickets while they last at

All-City Musical

Also this weekend, my daughter and I decided to go to the theater and saw the All-City Musical production of "The Little Mermaid" at the Akron Civic Theater. What a great production, we were so super impressed by the talent amongst the actors, the crew, and the orchestra! At one point, the actress who played Ariel hit this note during "Part Of Your World" that gave me goosebumps and I looked at my daughter and she had a tear in her eye, she was so good! I read in the program that "The Little Mermaid" was her first production and I couldn't believe it.

Everyone did an amazing job with their roles, incredible acting and singing. You all have a bright future in theater ahead of you!

I don't know about you, but I think Mother Nature is off her rocker today! We are struggling to hit 60 degrees outside today. I checked...our normal high for this date is about 77 - so we are roughly 20 degrees BELOW average today!!! Today's weather is more normal for mid April or Early November!

I have no idea why she (Mother Nature) is playing this game with us. Today it's about 60. By Thursday many of us may hit 90 again. SMH! Can't we just pick one and leave it already?!

Boat Boy!!

Hank's second time on the boat was less enjoyable than his first. He was bad! It's tough to be upset, though, with that cute face. 

My fiancée Mackenzie and I did some floating around and, after some time, we anchored at a little honey hole. At first, Hank was restless, but he settled down and slept for a long time. We caught a handful of fish and enjoyed a peaceful hour (or two) under the sun. 

Then, when Hank awoke, it all changed. He turned into a total menace with a bad attitude! His misbehavior and desire to jump overboard made it time to head back to the launch. 

All in all, it was a fun afternoon out on the water. I love my boat, dog, and fiancée!
