Things that make me go WHAT?

Ax Throwing Bars – WHAT?

Meeting someone who read an entire insurance policy, besides the lawyers who work for the insurance companies. – WHAT?

The senseless violence and hate of the human race. – What?

The President said – WHAT?

When your paycheck comes and it isn’t correct – WHAT

Finding a contractor who will tell you he won’t finish the job on time – WHAT

I love spending time looking at nature. A lot of the reason I enjoy living where I do. There are woods behind our home which gives a nice display of wildlife from time to time. This guy though is so aware. I can never get outside without him bolting. If he hears a window being lowered he’s off.

I actually opened my back door one night to get some fresh summer air and he was sitting about 5 feet from me overlooking the back yard before the woods. I think I startled him so he paused a second before high tailing it back to the woods. I try to live in harmony with it but big snakes do bother me.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I’ve let work affect my attitude before even starting this week. I’ve got to work harder on making that a non issue in life.

If you want to know what the word extortion means, look at your credit card interest rate.

Did you know there is a guy at the factory that builds personal printers that just sits there and puts in random expiration dates (Broken Beyond Repair) on each one. Trouble is his calendar only goes from 3 months to 2 years in advance.

Does anyone besides a carpenter, artist and elementary students, use a pencil anymore?

I don’t know why they call you a patient when you go to the hospital. Patience is about the last thing you have when you’re sick.

Shift work is not for older people. Even though it seems there are lots of us doing it.

I hope my better half is on the mend.

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.
