bada bing – bada breeze

Leave a comment

Good week going so far, but far too busy. And I’ve let this blog, that means something to me, slip again. I apologize for the unannounced absence. I do the best I can and try to keep that balance and enjoy life. The job makes that a bit hard at times, not to speak of all the other chores and task of life. Last week was just so busy with no break and then a busy work week began and here we are. So as I try to breathe some life again into this effort I thank you for your patience and visit.

For some reason my first thought today was just titled this post. As soon as I wrote it (bada bing) I wondered if I’ve used the same title over? I have no idea why that sudden thought and panic leapt into my head, but it did. Then my thoughts went to the content of this blog and asking myself if I’ve ever repeated myself? More panic. I know sometimes my thoughts or ramblings are similar from time to time, but then how much is totally redundant?

Then I sat back and laughed and thought, I’m at 60 now and if I want to repeat myself that is my right and I’ll enjoy it and exercise it at will, as I age. Really though, I almost slipped and went back to check for repetition, but I decided living and moving forward were more important. As it should be to all of us. And then the solution popped in my head. If I had used (bada bing) before I knew I never attached bada breeze behind it. For today a stiff wind is a blowing.


A rewarding week at the job that pays the bills. Got some useful time and interface with our managers. Also challenging myself a bit more. Feels like having been part of a marathon. It’s a Good thing to finish strong in those events. So time to kick up the learning curve again.

I wish I had pursued my own goals earlier but I’ve still got time so let me get to some of that. In other words off this chair and get a camera in my hand.


Random Thoughts of the Day

I am so tired of all the drama. Can’t just one news cycle be boring again?

The wonderful visit from my sister in-law is over as we transition back into missing her. She makes my family light up.

I can hear that wind howling outside. And its cold. Someone transport me to Florida please.

I keep a small desk calendar for one and only one purpose in life. To remind me how fast time flies as I peel off a month at a time. Where did January go?

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.
