I was able to relax with a good friend today. I believe he enjoyed the afternoon also. It’s not something we get to do often. And something that might get more difficult in the future. But we were living for today and made good use of it.

So time to do a thoughtful post is down to a few minutes because I went out the door to another one of my best friends for the Thursday Vigil. Going to throw the cameras in the car and try to catch some overnight snow shots in another few hours. I think its starting between 2-3am. Should be fun. Not many people out at that hour. So I better catch a quick nap.

I was going to post some more treasures from the chest I opened yesterday. For I found a number of what be my father’s father WWI medals. One of them is a Purple Heart. I’m thinking it probably is his because in the same case is a bullet that looks to be that vintage. I’ll get those shots out tomorrow or later tonight.

Random Thoughts of the Day

It feels real good to do something to help someone else. Think I’ll try to do the same thing again tomorrow but a different person. Or maybe the animal shelter.

At times in my life I have to admit I haven’t made the best of my opportunities and that is a real waste. But working hard to remedy those failures now.

Do you ever wonder where all the good ideas are stored?

If someone would like to secretly write my name and my friends in on the next election ballot that might be good for everyone. For we get together every week and solve the worlds problems.

I’m going about my days tasks and joys. But my mind is on my expecting daughter.
