Crank up the siren. We got an all-points bulletin out in good old Hazard County for nice weather. And while it was a short ride in the convertible today it was glorious. I was explaining to my father inlaw about how its the closest thing to the days of riding a motorcycle.

It’s freedom and puts a whole new perspective on driving. It also opens your eyes to all the things you miss in a cage. Sorry I meant the car.

This isn’t going to catch anything anymore than a nostalgic glance.

So the next 4 days look beautiful if you believe the weather report. I’m going to use them to get outside starting tomorrow.

I’m trying to stay positive this evening. Fighting a few things that make it hard to concentrate or just let a positive thought leap forward. I guess its just balance of life taking over. The first part of the day was good.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I learn a lot about what I would and wouldn’t like to be by watching people closely.
  • Listening to older people is a unique skill.
  • Tomorrow night our bed has an extra visitor. My Son’s dog is staying with us. That means my spot is in jeopardy.
  • If you think about telling your loved ones you love them by text, email, phone or in person and do it often, you have your head on straight.

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.
