Feeling good this weekend. Had my granddaughter a few days this week and they were wonderful. The innocence of a child’s laughter and smiles. There wonderment when you play games and tricks with them. The enjoyment of watching them eat new foods. And just in case my daughter is reading this one I didn’t give her anything bad. By the way, she likes bacon.

Thankfully my better half reminded me there was more to Saturday than chores. And I was feeling better after a rude Friday evening. We took a 2-hour ride around the county and enjoyed the sights. Seemed like everyone had the same idea because traffic was intense for that afternoon. Even on the back roads.

So a beautiful Saturday was had. Could be a little warmer but I’ll cope. What I’m having trouble coping with is the neighbor’s roosters each day. Getting miffed every morning when they wake me before dawn. And forget taking a nap during the day because they go off several times during the daylight also. And when I’m working a night shift its just brutal to try to get some sleep. But I’ll get into that another day. Maybe I need a visit to this establishment on Main Street that I haven’t been in. I think its the building where the Horse Spirits Gallary was.

Even though its only in the ’60s for a high temp today that means its still a top-down day on the car because the warmth of the sun will be there. That drive yesterday was nice. I just have to remember a day like that in January or February would revive my soul so I won’t complain about it being a little chilly.

I wonder if the population of this country (U.S.) will get its act together enough to overcome this virus? I have my doubts. So many needless deaths and people sick for short and long periods. It makes me wonder about people’s lack of compassion for each other.

I saw a blogger ask what’s in your drafts folder. At this moment I have 270 draft posts in there. Some of which will never see the light of day, some may be a germ of an idea that gets developed or one that should be trashed. I’ve had drafts come back years later and seem more relevant or have a photo or two that I need for another post.

Some are photo ideas I’d like to work on more because I’m not satisfied with the images. Some are images I’m very pleased with and I don’t have the right words to go with them.

I guess I should really clean it out and finish some of those.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Too bad everyone can’t get half the care the President gets.
  • I found out where the time goes, to the past.
  • Holly crap, I forgot to flip my wall calendars again.
  • I have no idea how people go through life without a significant partner.
  • Could you imagine what we could accomplish if we were on the same page?

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.
