I’m hoping with more time in the future I’ll be able to significantly improve my writing and photography. I see so much inspiring and quality work and I’m hoping that with more time practice and experience I might be able to create something special.

I’m hoping it warms up because I saw snowflakes yesterday morning and I won’t have that in April. Someone forward me Mother Natures’ digits so I can call her and personally voice my complaint. If you don’t know by now, I HATE cold. I despise temps this low in late April. I have an attitude when I step outside and apologize to those in earshot of me for the colorful description of

I’m hoping my better half feels better.

I was on my way home yesterday morning from a Funeral service and stopped by Dunkin Doughnuts at Marriotsville and Rt 99. In the parking lot were a heard of Harley full dressed bikes. And a crowd of black leather individuals outside the entrance. It turned out to be the Motor Maids from New Jersey out for a spin. A group of very friendly women out for a group cruise. They were trying to do a group shot on my way out of DD so I offered to assist and got my camera and snapped a group shot. Thank you for visiting ladies and ride safe.

I was hoping to ride again someday but that wish is fading. Not that I wouldn’t love it but risk-reward balance is tough to justify. I’m not young and cocky enough anymore to think my driving skills can keep me away from every dangerous situation. And with the way people drive now, it’s just not good unless you are in a pack of bikes where people will give you some room because they don’t want issues with a big group of bikers.

I’m hoping as always to leave this world a better place but it appears I have a mountain of work ahead to accomplish that goal.

I’m hoping to get back on track with some better eating habits, exercise and proper sleep. Stop laughing at me.

I’m hoping that the huge number of police, medical and teachers, and other professions under huge stress and fire don’t quit their careers. But I understand and see your pain in these difficult times. We need you and we will step up also. Don’t let what led you to those careers fade away, please.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Writing is a conscious effort that you have to make time for.
  • Wow, I got to see two very old friends today and hug again. Funny how you appreciate that much more now, being they haven’t been in great supply this last year.
  • Eating dinner out for the first time this coming weekend. I wonder what the dress code is on pajamas.

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.
