I’m guessing that today and tomorrow are going to be brutal with the commute. If people aren’t out shopping for the Thursday feast they are cramming in the last day or two of work but thinking about the long weekend. Then there are the masses who are traveling to friends, family or vacations. I wish everyone a safe holiday weekend. Please be patient. Please be courteous.


None of this type of snow below yet but I can imagine looking outside this winter and seeing this scene. After listening to the forecast for Thursday’s cold it can’t be far away.

See why I hate winter.

I’m hoping to de-stress this weekend. I’m letting the small stuff get to me. I haven’t been my jovial self in a few days. I’m ready for a few days strung together that leave me feeling on top of the world. And seeing family and friends should put me there.


Random Thoughts of the Day

The pardoning of the turkeys took place today. It was hard to tell which was which.

Funny how “Lock Her Up” has taken on an entirely new meaning.

I read a quote where a person who feels appreciated will always do more than what is expected. A lot of people who aren’t appreciated also do more than what is expected. The difference is one will stand the test of time and the other will fade.

I see Duke the dog who is in advertisements for Bush’s Baked Beans has passed. I wonder if he is sharing the secret recipe upstairs?

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.
