It’s been such a long time

Leave a comment

Don’t know why I picked that title other than I had that song playing this morning on my iTunes (which I hear is going away). But it got me thinking about my life. Yeah, it’s been a long time compared to some who passed way to early. My relationships (personal and professional) have been together for a long time

My dreams of one day doing my own thing professionally have been there a long time. It’s been far too long since I’ve ridden a motorcycle. A long-time has passed since I’ve sat down with a dozen or two crabs in front of me. Its been a long time since I’ve since I haven’t worried about my health.

Some things have been a long time coming. Retirement used to seem a long time off, but now I see that light. It takes a LONG F’ing TIME to get to work some days.

My parents have passed for what seems to be a long time now. I’ve been without a pet for the longest time in my life. I’ve waited a long time to get started on my own dreams but I’m off the launchpad now. It takes me a long time to read a book.

I want to put my feet in the sand for a long time this summer. It’s been a long time since I’ve thrown a frisbee. And even longer since I’ve bent backward to catch one through my legs. I wonder what my back would think of that maneuver now? If I did it, it might be a long time till I get vertical again.

I’ve been in love for a long time. I just always didn’t appreciate it as I should have. I look at pictures on my wall and realize some of them were taken a long time ago. It’s getting to be a long time since I didn’t have a few grey hairs. A long-time has passed since the Allview Fishing team has made a journey out together.

What I would like to wake up to.

I haven’t had enough horsepower under my right foot to feel the front end try to lift off the ground in a long time. It feels like such a long time now between the visits with my children (even though I see them fairly regularly). Its been a long time since cleaning out my inbox.

My tractor has lasted a long time. It will be a long time till I ever purchase a hardtop car again. Some workdays just take a long time to pass. I can still play air guitar and sing for a long time. A lifetime isn’t really a long time no matter how long you live. I thought it would be a long time learning to become a writer, and I was probably right.

It’s been a long time since my last haircut so let me hit the road for that.

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.
