The warmth was on and now we get a brief respite before it cranks up again later this week. Was nice riding this morning with the top down. That felt like the last free second of the day I had. Do you ever have those days where time seems to just evaporate before your eyes. I’m making better use of my time every day and I still seem to have little left to accomplish things I’d like to do.

Too warm for some.

In some ways I wished I had recognized how many free hours I used to give the job earlier in my career and changed that. Yeah it was smart to work hard and longer in hopes of creating opportunities for myself and teammates. And it worked out a bit for me. But I didn’t look at it like a business arrangement and that is all it is. Such is life, learning from my mistakes as I go.

Sometimes I think about things as I look back and for a moment wish I had changed something. But then I think about how everything now is so special and I wouldn’t want to change that at.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Sometimes I’m just too cooperative.

I’m glad I got people around me not afraid to correct me.

The hair on my neck still stands up when I watch videos of the original Lynyrd Skynyrd band. Takes me back and they still sound as good as when I heard them the first time and at concerts.

There is a picture of my Dad holding me when I was young. He looked very happy. I wish he lived long enough to tell me that.

It takes a special person to work in a behind the scenes role, one that isn’t visible or appreciated much. That is a lot of us.
