Are you going up or down? Who cares, just make the best of every day here because I believe in the phrase “heaven on earth.” So brush off those little problems. Stop thinking of yourself first and help someone today. And if you face big problems, don’t let it change who you are.

I saw 2 very mad people the other day. One was a young man trying to purchase a pack of cigarettes. The counter girl carded him and he didn’t like it. Hell I would have carded him if it was my job because he didn’t look that old for someone who was 26. I remember my wife getting carded when she was almost 30. I was right behind him and I just laughed as he walked off and said I wouldn’t mind looking 10 years younger. And then the older 70+ gentleman behind me says, “I’m just glad to be looked at and that I can look back.” Such anger from such a young person over such a small thing. Sad to see the young man behave like that.

The second was a young woman. She was at the hospital with what looked her mother and apparently it was taking longer for her to be seen than she liked. She cussed a blue streak for a good 5 minutes before she walked off cussing. There was an older couple (70+) sitting across from her and I could see this was making them uncomfortable. I actually got up to say something when she stormed off before I could get into it with her. Actually I was going to walk over to the desk and make sure she heard me ask for security to remove her. And if they wouldn’t I would. One I certainly understand people being under stress in a hospital. Especially patients. But some young girl who is just doing transport or company duty isn’t one of them. And obviously hasn’t been raised with any manors or respect for people.

So people, chill out, relax and enjoy life and your fellow human beings instead of being such hostile F’s.

Random thoughts for Friday November 13th 2015

  • The reason that people drive at night with their lights off is because there is no light between their ears on.
  • The more I smile, the fast time goes.
  • If I slept more I could probably relax more. Or is it the other way around.
  • Never take a hot shower for granted.
  • Never take a meal for granted.
  • But most importantly don’t take friends and family for granted.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
