Present

That is about it. Where you can say “present” at the beginning of class as the teacher called role. And that is the contribution for the day.That is about all I’m able to eek out this fine Thursday. I accomplished a few of my goals and missed a few. Felt unfocused like these pictures. So we are going for a Focused Friday. I’m learning that a tripod will help my old behind become a better photographer.

I’m also going to focus on a few task and knock them out of the park. I just thought of another thing I’d like to do this weekend. Maybe write a little something about Mothers. For I have much respect for that role. I had a great one. My better half is a great one. And now my daughter is becoming a great one.

Yeah, maybe for Mothers Day. I’ll have to give that a shot.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Crap, I just remembered I’m going to have to interface with the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicles. Lets see if that transaction can take place without me writing a manifesto after the visit.

Friends can sure turn a difficult day into a good one.

I was telling one of my friends that I’ve put OJ back in my morning routine and he made a wise crack “what no coke”. And I said yes. I chase the Orange Juice with a Coke. I guess that is a old guys version of the morning Red Bull or whatever power drink that is the rage. And yes he thought that was disgusting also. But its me.

It felt good to take a very stressful situation at the job in stride and not let it affect me like it used to. The power of remembering who is in control.

Eat right, well its a thought. Why does all the stuff that taste the best, the worst for you?

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.
