I love to laugh

Leave a comment

I woke this day and listened to some comedy. That is a fine thing to have on when just working along at the computer or tinkering in the basement. But it’s not something I do often even though laughing through this day has me thinking I need to make this more a part of every day like I do with music. Actually, I laugh a lot even without comedy on YouTube or clubs. My friends and I are a fairly comical group. So an email or text or phone call might have me smiling all day. And then there are our weekly vigils where laughter is unavoidable.

Helping people laugh and looking for people to be close to that are funny can make life a real joy. I’ve never been shy interjecting humor as I can.

I got to spend some family time for a few hours before heading outside to do war with Mother Nature. She was a formidable opponent today. And the next two days might be warmer. I’m finally using my brain and not pushing it in very hot weather.

This has been a great start to the weekend. For some reason, I feel very blessed and at peace. I think that the reason is everyone is healthy and pretty happy in my family and close circle of friends. That is nothing to be sneezed at. I’m also enjoying a fairly nice run the last few weeks and that is a welcomed stretch that I’d like to keep going.

I’m inspired to work into the night on some creative pursuits. Let’s see what I can dream up this evening.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Life, do it LIVE. Planning is cool. Reflection is great. LIVING is the S**T
  • I look around my office and the word that leaps to mind is “Purge.”
  • Going to print tonight till the unit runs out of ink.
  • Just being thankful for lots of things at the moment.

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.
