Monday mush

Leave a comment

What a contrasting day outside. Rain, storms, wind, sunshine, warm breeze. A little of everything and that was good for me. A little entertainment for a Monday morning and afternoon. And some work to do when it dries out sometime later this week. Lots of branches and some washouts to deal with.

So what can we do for our fellow man/woman today? Lots of issues around the world and around your corner need help. From the poor soles in the south suffering from the storms to families out of work and hungry to those who are sick. So many issues it’s overwhelming. Yes, I can help but I also have to be careful. Only half of this household is working now. I have children with children who aren’t as close to owning their homes as I am. I’m hemorrhaging retirement savings. My company isn’t immune to this economic downturn. I don’t have a crystal ball for the future. Therefore I will do what I can and be happy with it. Think about what you can do, no matter how little. Tonight a donation, tomorrow some food to the local animal shelter.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Birds seem so happy after a good rain.
  • Ratings aren’t measured by TV, they are measured in history.
  • It’s good to still be working. Thank goodness I can do it from home.
  • I saw a very good Uber commercial tonight. It seems like a responsible company given how they are basically saying don’t use their business in this crisis.

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.
