My challenge to stay over night in all 50 states continues!

Remember, the rule is you cannot just drive through the state, you have to have stayed over night.

So this month, I stayed overnight in Vermont (woot!) so now I am only 16 states away from my goal!

I have officially visited these states in my life:

1. Arizona
2. Arkansas
3. California
4. Colorado
5. Connecticut
6. Florida
7. Georgia
8. Illinois
9. Iowa
10. Kansas
12. Louisiana
12. Maine
13. Massachusetts
14. Maryland
15. Michigan
16. Minnesota
17. Missouri
18. Nebraska
19. Nevada
20. New Jersey
21. New York
22. North Carolina

27. Tennessee
28. Texas
29. Utah
30. Vermont!!!
31. Virginia
32. Washington

Thus, I am left with these states still to visit:

At certain times in their lives, boys become their Fathers.

And so it has happened to me.

Were that I could be 1/2 as great a man as my Da but I have become him in this way: goofy things please me.

He would really enjoy my quest to stay over night in all 50 states. He would love that I will not just be willing to “drive-thru” a state. Where’s the challenge in that?

So this month, I stayed overnight in Tennessee (woot!) and I am now only 17 states away from my goal!

a simple reminder

So as you may know, I do a fair bit of traveling.

There are a couple of things I try and do to keep it from being tedious.

One is I try and meet local voice talents in whatever city I am going to. Sometimes when I call and introduce myself, I end up making a new friend and sometimes a new VO thinks I’m some sort of crazy stalker — ‘who just calls strangers out of the blue like that?’

The OTHER thing I do is keep track of the states I have visited. Now my rule is that to count as a visit, I have to have stayed overnight in the state. A drive through does NOT count.

Following my stay in Overland Park, Kansas (my 31st state) I now have only 19 states left before I will have stayed in all 50 states.

P.S. I just remembered I was in Baltimore for my niece’s college graduation….18 more to go!

thank you anyway but today is not my birthday

EDITOR’S NOTE: This has become an annual New Year’s Day post. Happy New Year!

January 1st is not my birthday. Never has been.

But for those social media outlets that demand a birth date in a profile I decided to make January 1st my Social Media birthday.

I’m not big on putting a lot of vital personal information out on the web, a birthday being just one example of a person’s personal identity puzzle that those with ill intent could use in a nefarious way.

So thanks for your thoughts and wishes. I accept them in the spirit of kindness and friendship that they are offered.

I hope your new year is blessed, happy and safe.

It has been said: “For those who understand, no answer is necessary. For those who do not understand, no answer will suffice.”

Every year I still enjoy this wonderful piece of TV and I hope you do too. Please share this post with your social media voice-over friends!

Happy Thanksgiving!
