Feeling productive

Leave a comment

An early start to the day gave me some good motivation to start the day with. I just also had the most wonderful visit with my daughter and her daughter this afternoon.

I got to thinking about Fathers day tomorrow. I’m going to try to learn some more about my father this evening. He passed when I was pretty young so all I have is some remnants of him and his history to go on now.

In regards to being a father myself, I hope both of my parents are proud of me. I know I’ve made a few mistakes here and there but I’ve been blessed with the two most wonderful children any parent could ask for. I feel their love so strongly. They have certainly made me as proud as any father could be in how they live and conduct their lives.

And of course, I can’t let the day come without saying happy Fathers day to my Son-in-law and of course my Father-in-law. One a brand new father and the other the wise sage of the family. Hats off to you both.

And I hope every father has their children reach out and as a child yourself (no matter the age) reach out to your father and express your thanks.

I wonder if he read all the signs?

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Some days I get so tired. It actually might be easy to sleep long this evening.
  • I’m making a commitment to use my deck and hammock more this summer.
  • I’d feel better if I could get at least one of my desk cleaned off. But it does remind me I’m fairly busy.
  • I’ve noticed people who smoke are oblivious to the odor it leaves on their clothes and person.

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.
