Throwback Thursday – “DR. IAN NUTCAKES ON THE PSYCHIATRY OF TIES, CUBICLES AND OTHER ARTISTIC REPRESSIONS”

Heron Flight blog - May 10, 2004

MY LOYAL READERS…

It is my privilege to introduce to you my long time friend, associate and accomplice, Dr. Ian Nutcakes.

Dr. Nutcakes is a distinguised member of the American Psychiatric Society and a high level staff member of the Neggooozian Institute for Mental Research. In addition, Dr. Ian is founder of Concerned Physicians For Censored, Repressed And Otherwise Frustrated Artists, commonly known as CPFCRAOFA, an acronym which no one can pronounce but looks serious.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s go way back. 11 years back.

(Herein lies proof that I was a nutcase at least as far back as 11 years ago.)

Half Marathon Training – Weekly Long Run

Today’s Goal: 9 miles
Actual Distance: 9 miles
Time: 1:30:59
Weather: Sunny; Cool; 60 degrees; Beautiful September morning
Time of Day: 8 AM
Notes: This is the longest distance I’ve ever run. I felt good the whole run. At one point it was like I forgot I was still running and was lost in my thoughts.


In order to amuse myself while covering what was quite a distance (for me), and for your entertainment, I took a selfie at each mile. You’re welcome.


That's weird shit.  Maybe running causes brain damage.

Actual Distance: 8 miles
Time: 1:16:27

Each Sunday will be breaking new ground with distance as 8 is the farthest I’ve ever run to this point.

Isle of Man – No Girls Allowed!

Is this where the Little Rascals established their “He-Man Woman Haters Club” when they grew up?

I imagine the Isle is full of caves.

A man’s home is his castle, especially in Castletown.

Is there a White Castle in Castletown? Mmm… meat.

Isle of Man

Land of caves and meat.
