It was a bit chilly outside this Friday and Saturday. The wind chill is significant. I’m a little bit chilled out after my physical Friday. I really enjoyed chilling with my granddaughter. What a wonderful chilled day. A few more days of chill ahead and then warmer temps.

And warmer temps will bring us all outside. And the park we visit will begin to thaw and accept the crowds again. Let’s all be chill with each other as we gather again. Share a path and a smile. Oh yeah, you can’t see the smiles anymore, maybe a wave or head nod to each other.

Life was teaching me a few lessons the last day or two so that is why I’ve been absent without leave. I learned my furnace and A/C are getting near the end of life after this last repair. Seems like it was just yesterday I was paying for new ones. It’s actually been over 2 decades so that isn’t bad. I’ve been lucky that we have been able to endure things like that. So many people struggle to make ends meet month to month. A lot of time due to no fault of their own. Life is tough for a great deal of the population. I think I’ll find a way to help someone or a few people today.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m hard on myself on how I use my time. But that is in hope that I make better use of it the next day.
  • I love the smell of bacon on a weekend morning.
  • If you laugh and pause and laugh again at a Dilbert cartoon it reminds you of your job.
  • My doctor reminded me that regular checkups are part of remaining healthy. And in looking at my life they certainly have prolonged it a few times. So I encourage you to get to the doctor if something is ailing you or if it’s time for your annual checkup.

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.
