Early this morning I watched the video from Fager’s Island in Ocean City of the sunset and their playing of the 1812 Overture followed by America the Beautiful, the Ray Charles version I believe. It’s one of my favorite things to do in OC on our summer vacation. A fine meal with the family and then watching the sunset from the dock gazebo on the water with the music playing.

I sure hope we get a chance to visit this year. I hate to get my hopes up for this too much but summer family vacations are so important to all of us. Especially me, its sort of like my yearly recharge session. But I will sacrifice this and many other things if we all come through this healthy.

I’m having trouble coming to grips with this country. Our need for the haves to get the economy going over the have not’s who are already dying at a disproportionate rate. I wonder if their family members were on the front line if they would be so anxious? It’s kind of a good analogy about sending our troops into battle. Very few of those directing those actions have been there or they don’t have family members in harm’s way.

A Happy Easter to all who celebrate.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I wish our government could react as fast as the commercial advertisers on TV with the new realities.
  • I see some complaining about life at home with the kids. I’d give anything to be able to see mine again right now.
  • For some strange reason, I’m filled with some hope this morning.
  • Instead of looking at the number of deaths, go look at a few of the names and pictures and their stories. Then decide if you want to go out or not.
