Good day, all. Feeling a little better as the calendar clicks off days and boy does that make the day much better. What’s the old adage, if you ain’t got you’re health, you ain’t got nothing.

Nice to see those strong storms go north and south of us today here in the land of the spoiled living. Sometimes I feel like we are in a nice sweet spot in this country. No wildfires, tornados, and hurricanes are rare, earthquakes are mild and few and far between. Parts of the state do get some flooding and with the sea level rising it probably will be more but not in most of the state.

Hillside, Headstones, Wreaths, and a lone mourner in the upper right corner.

I usually work on my personal “To-Do List” every day. Last week I realized I hadn’t touched it and when I looked at it I saw I missed my visit to my parent’s resting place this past Sunday. As I was flipping the channel on a break last night I saw a documentary pop on about Arlington National Cemetery where they are buried. I watched for a bit, seeing places I sometimes walk after talking with my parents. It became very emotional to see these spots that are part of a very special place.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The less I leave home the fewer crazy people I run into.
  • I guess if you like watching train wrecks the Johhny Depp and Amber Heard trial is your bag but it holds absolutely no interest to me.
  • I had dinner with my better half for the first time in a few days. I wish I could have tasted it. Maybe tomorrow.
  • I got to hear both my children’s voices today. Life is great.

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.
