Accountable, I like that word. I try to fulfill the meaning of the word. I’m not always successful so I need to work harder at it in some aspects of my life. This blog is one glaring example of where I haven’t held myself fully accountable. I really wanted to make this a daily photoblog when I started. I’ve not been true to that effort.

I started to enjoy the writing part of it and I got lazy in shooting something new each day. So sorry about this, I guess I got enamored in hearing myself talk. I should spend more time listening and soaking up other’s work.

So instead of wasting time talking about it, I’m going to get my behind out the door this Saturday morning and find something wonderful to photograph in this county I grew up in, went to school in, got married in, raised children in, owned a home in, worked in, owned a business in and I’m contemplating retiring in.

I like those who are accountable in their lives.

Well, this puppy is beat and calling it a night early so I can be up and out early tomorrow.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • If you show your children you’re not afraid of hard work, they won’t be.
  • I see people are getting excited about the professional sports leagues playing again. College football powerhouses saying they will be playing. NFL plans on having fans in the seats. I think I can actually hear the Virus laughing at us and saying it might have a new plan.
  • I’m almost giddy with the thought of a good night’s sleep. Of course, I had that same intention last night.
  • I wonder if sports leagues will have fans signing a disclaimer not to sue as the president does for his rallies?

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.
