Calm before the storm

When I heard 3-6 inches of rain was coming I had to get the cameras out because I love shooting water. Seeing the first few drops on the picnic table and hearing the thunder in the distance has my antenna up. I think I’ll venture out in the morning early for some images in the area. I would go out this evening but work is on the agenda.

Brought the wind chimes in instead of listening to the pound against the house tonight. Also secured a few other things. Just realized its been a while in having to do this. That was a really nice stretch of weather we had.


Trying to look on the bright side as much as possible. And when I can’t find that I try to look for the humor in life. And when I can’t find a laugh I sigh and say I’ve had a lot of good days and I’m thankful.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Life is a trip, but we’re all on a separate tour though.
  • To find the good in some people you just have to scratch the surface most of the time. There are those hard cases though that you better have brought your pick and shovel.
  • Not enough sleep takes a much higher toll now.
  • If you don’t like the opportunities provided, create some of your own.

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.
