Where do the days go


I was going to start the post by commenting on the beautiful sky today. There wasn’t a cloud to be seen and its a wonderful shade of blue. The kind of day I should have been out shooting. I guess today I should qualify that statement. By shooting I mean photography. Instead I’m catching up on some overdue rest. Such is life, will get back into the swing of it on Wednesday.

And speaking being in the swing of it. I hope to try swinging a golf club. Not sure if the shoulder is up to it yet but would like to squeeze one round in this year with one of my best friends. He’s so kind playing with me, I’m no good at all and he has honed his game pretty well. Of course I’ll tell him his entire advantage is the clubs and shoes.

Lately I worry more and more about the world I’m leaving my kids. Like I got some control over it. Well I’ll just have to pretend I do and do the best I can to change it for the better. And tomorrow I think I’ll do that with a few donations to start the day. Then I need to get to work on some thoughts and ideas on how I can make a difference. I’ve been too lazy for far too long.

Random Thoughts

I had never heard of a device called a bump stock before yesterday.

I love my wife even though she is mad at me.

I got to speak to both of my children in the last 24 hours. Life is good.

For so many smart people with all the solutions we certainly still have lots of problems.

If you disrespect me, expect the same in kind. I wonder if work reads this blog.

If tonight goes well, I could be watching baseball for another month.

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.

  1. I enjoyed your blog today, especially about the comment that ” you love your wife even though she is mad at me.” I am also in that same position more than I would like. So I have begun to read and study what THE WORD says about love. I had little knowledge of the subject especially since very little love was modeled to me from my parents. I have learned that love suffers others wrongs, not self seeking, not keeping score of trespasses and much more. I have a long way to go but I have a much clearer thoughts on the subject of love. A Pastor once had me and my wife hold hands, sitting facing each other and read the scriptures on love to each other. It was very powerful and it showed me that I needed alot of work / counseling on the subject of love. I am still learning. Giving up the right to be right is very difficult.
