A wonderful Christmas day already. I’m so thankful for my children and family. The provide me the best gift of all. Their time and love. Which has really made my life special and wonderful. They make any difficulties I might experience at the job fade away. They give me something to look forward to. They give me something that makes the difficult work, worth while.

Some days of my life I’d like to have frozen in time. Not in the way that I want any day frozen, for I’m of the belief that we can always improve on things even when they are good. I’d like to just tuck away the memories of today in a special place.


Random Thoughts of the Day

In the last 64 hours I’ve gotten 7 hours sleep. So if anyone tries to wake me in a few hours, good luck.

I got my family some Mega Millions tickets, but I feel like we already hit the jackpot.

The battle continues – I know I need to get in shape but my better half is a very good cook.

I was able to give my daughter in-law a memento from my Mom tonight. Nothing big but just the thought of her having it warms my heart. I didn’t remember how they both liked Elephants. This was a little wood carving of one.

This Christmas was a special one. But next years with the first grandchild is going to be a new chapter.

I was so tired I almost skipped doing a post today because of lack of sleep, but then I came to my senses. This is becoming more of who I am. So why would I blow it off.

It’s nice to turn politics off. Today showed me I should do that more often.

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.
