I had a wonderful start to the day and the rest of it followed through as well. I could do without the cold temps but it comes with this time of the season. But like the boats below I’m waiting for a quick thaw and return to our warmer months.

Today’s writing prompt: What is your favorite quote and why. I love quotes and enjoy reading the hell out of them but don’t save too many. I guess my favorite is one that is fairly recent in the scope of history. It’s one that touches my heart and one that no grandfather will ever forget because the request is so genuine.

“Come play with me Papa”My 2-year-old Granddaughter

Another that I’ve often reminded myself to be the later of in life.

“There are two types of people -those who come into a room and say, “Well, here I am!” and those who come in and say, “Ah, there you are.”― Frederick L. Collins

Creativity takes courage. – Henri Matisse

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • My dislike for cold weather knows no bounds.
  • There are few joys greater than seeing your children happy and healthy.
  • Sometimes the simplest trinket becomes a special momento.
  • I can’t believe the Packers lost.

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.
