I’m without focus today. Had to run a few errands and I’m not encouraged by the selfishness I see of some behind the wheel. But there were flashes of humanity today. I held the door open for those who were behind me with their hands full. There were a few kind words and wishes for a good holiday from the guys at the liquor store. And I’m not a regular.

And I exchanged nodes and pleasantries with a complete stranger while sitting in traffic, we were headed in the opposite directions but stuck in traffic. He gave a node and I thought he said something so I rolled down the window. He said he was just nodding about the car. I told him I liked his also. Ours were the same color and both had black convertible tops but different makes of car. I said I wished it was warm enough to have the top down and he smiled and laughed.

Today I’m going to eat smart. Ah the hell with it. Might as well get a base on for tomorrow. Plus my logic is I’m going to need a few extra layers to deal with these cold temps. I have to go out twice tomorrow just to pick up and return my father and mother in-law, but otherwise its feasting, football, fun and fatness.

I can see the problem now. I’m full as can be. I’ve loosened the string on the sweat suit. And then I hear a voice from the kitchen again. It will yell, Mike do you want a piece of apple, pecan or pumpkin pie. Good thing I have a day to sort out that answer. Of course I’ll have whipped cream with any choice.

Random Thoughts of the Day

When trust is gone. Chaos and Civil War replaces it.

I wish I had time to read more blogs.

My mind is like a computer that is running too many intensive programs and scripts. And the one eating up the CPU is the one waiting on medical results.

Only another day or two to a full moon. Maybe time for some night shooting.

Here’s to a safe and happy holiday weekend.

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.
