Not the start I was looking for

I’m off to the races on one leg. Got a bum right ankle to start the week. So I didn’t make as much progress as I had hoped. I wanted to do a little shooting this morning but after a haircut I had nothing left from a long first day at work except pain.

Beautifully twisted.

This Bonsai tree was at a coworkers desk. It’s a nice one and I thank them for the peace it gives me when I walk by it.

I’m trying to find things each day that make me feel better when I can’t be with family and friends.


Random Thoughts of the Day

They don’t have to tell me this is a record year for rainfall. That new fault that opened in my lower back yard proves that.

I wonder if any of the high school kids from Wisconsin throwing the Nazi salute had grandparents who fought a war over it? And I wonder how they felt if they saw it.

Some days I wish I had a battery backup system for me.

Watching California burn is very depressing.

Holy crap, the winter holidays have sneaked up on me.

Ah, a return to the days of my youth from sprained ankles on the court. Ice, heat, repeat.

Holy crap 2, my barber is thinking about retiring in another year. When I started going to Sal’s, he was a young buck. How the hell did he get so old.

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.
