Hey!! WHAT’S THIS LYIN’ AROUND S**T

Saw this photo as I was doing some editing and almost threw it out but thought of that line in the movie Animal House uttered so emphatically by Bluto. “HEY!! WHAT’S THIS LYIN’ AROUND S**T. So another Post is born.

Hey, it’s a Sunday.

Its kind of what I’ve been doing the first half of the day. But it’s about to gear up I feel. I’m still working on purging some old computers, cleaning the workroom. I’m a pack rat. I think they use the term hoarders now but I don’t feel that bad. I do keep some things around longer than I need.

What spurred the cleanup – A few things. I mentioned earlier I wouldn’t want someone to have to sort through the mess and wonder what was important and what was trash. So I’m trying to clear the trash. I remember having to clean my Mothers home out, what to put in storage at my home and what was trash. It took forever.

Plus it feels like a fresh start. Something new. Something less cluttered. Not a completely clean slate but dust free again and more room. Oh yeah, the real reason, we have company coming for Thanksgiving.


Life is full of ups and downs. And just like this photo, the future isn’t in good focus. I’ve found it more beneficial to just live more in the moment. And Monday I hope to do some good living. I think I’ll start it off with a haircut at daybreak. Yeah, my barber starts early in the day.

No this isn’t Rolling Road but it could be.

Random Thoughts of the Day

One of the parts about hosting family during the holidays is not having to get in the cold car afterwards and drive home.

I wonder why they call them benefits when they are so expensive?

I don’t tweet. I don’t read tweets unless they are read over the news and I wish they would stop that.

Another work week ahead, are you in the starting gate?

I can’t wait to get to my priorities.

I haven’t seen my ankle so discolored since I was a youth.

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.
