I stepped outside in a tee shirt today and I wasn’t cold. Now that is something I didn’t expect to do for a while yet. So I took a short ride with the top down. I must be the adventurous one because I saw a number of other convertibles with the top up still. I did have one biker give me a nod to the drop-top.

The definition of attention. Dogs have it.

But the treat of the day was watching our Son’s dog for a few hours. She is a joy to have. So loving and well behaved. And she knows I’m the ice cream man so the first thing she does when she gets to our house is going to the front of the freezer and alternate sitting and standing till I get her a few small slivers of vanilla ice cream.

How can you look into a dog’s eyes and not feel the love?

I’m so glad to see the love my children have for their pets. In another week or two, I’m going to make a donation to our local animal shelter. I got lucky and won a bet so no better use for it than our 4 legged friends.

I was just playing with her profile today.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • This has been a great year. I’m so thankful for it. Just about all my personal relationships are better.
  • I feel bad eating habits creeping back in.
  • If you buy a convertible its a crime not to use it.
  • I think I’ll start giving each new week the attention I give each new year.
  • I’ve realized to be a photographer it would behoove me to have the camera in my hands each day.

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.
