To the point


Got a chance to treat my Son to dinner and the Maryland basketball game this evening. Both were great. I realized that I now look up to my children. Both are so far ahead of me at that age. They are responsible and loving young adults. Their career’s are going well. They have their heads on straight. Hell I was still playing the fool in my late twenties.

To the Point.

The pride and comfort my children give me is something I wish I could bottle and share with the world. Their strength and spirit and drive are amazing to watch. A parent will always worry about their children. But the worries I have about them are just the basics. For health and safety.

What I wouldn’t give for a warm and humid summer morning. I don’t think that is going to happen for a bit. As the space heater sits running behind me fighting off that balmy 30 degrees outside, I wonder if I can make it through a long winter. I’m already thinking of hibernating for a few months. Now if I can figure out how to do that and continue earning a living I’ll be fine.

The evening is getting foggy.

Random Thoughts of the Day

We are Marshall was a good movie. The Marshall basketball team this evening was far less impressive.

I thought my ankle was getting better, I thought wrong.

My designated shopping times will be weekdays between 8am and 10am till Xmas is over.

Pepsi must be trying again to make inroads against Coke because I see they have added some establishments to their list this year that I frequent.

Well the Lakers are on so I have to cut this post short.

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.
