Went to a college basketball game this evening thanks to a Xmas present from my son. We had a great time. I mean how many times on a final regular season game and senior night do you get to see someone surprise propose at half court. That kind of kicked off an exciting evening at the X Center. The game was a good one. It was Gold Rush night so every one of the students got gold tee shirts. Of course my son and I had our gold on.

I’ve spent some real quality time with my children the last few days. There is nothing like it. Well even though they are young adults they will always be our children.  I don’t know how I got so lucky but the word thankful would be an understatement. And I love the way our relationships are growing.

Random Thoughts of the Day

I had something so special in my arms today for the first time. I won’t forget that moment or feeling.

I heard there was a recall on my car. But when I looked closer it was for the model with automatic transmissions. Serves you right for buying a Mazda Miata with and automatic transmission. Its sacrilege they are even made that way.

Went to Hard Times Cafe today. Forgot how much I liked their chilli. They also had some great boneless wings. I was taken back to the day when our company had a plant in College Park MD. We used to hit the HTC for lunch. I won’t make the time between visits so great next time.

OK, the end to the regular season of the College Basketball season. The tension just went up a few notices for these kids and schools.

Snow, can you believe it. Its March 8th and we get snow. Unacceptable but I did make it to the end of Friday before I complained about the weather this week.

If there were more time in this day, I would have written more, thankfully for you all there is a deadline and I must bid farewell for the day.
