A smoking good time

In a few weeks, we will be grilling out some freshly caught rockfish. That’s right, we are dragging the Fishing Team out of retirement. I’m looking forward to a few days of laughter, love, and happiness. We have known each other for 4-5 decades and it should be a great time again.

The last night of the workweek is ahead of me this evening and then a big effort on the homestead for 3 days. Got a family gathering this weekend. The first such one since the passing of my father and mother inlaw. It might trigger some pauses. I’m sure there will be laughter and maybe a few tears. There is another addition to the family to be seen and celebrated. Some long overdue hugs and hopefully a good time to be had by all.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Starting a day off in real pain is a pain.
  • It took us a little while but my better half and I are a pretty good team.
  • Some days you are just more thankful for than others. Yesterday was one of those.

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.
