Figures my first day off is going to be a stormy and rainy one. This is not the way I wanted to kick off my June. Thankfully the weekend is looking up so therefore I’ll overlook the gloom on Thursday. I guess I should be thankful for rain given what some of the western states in the US are going through.

I haven’t gone out and stood in the rain in a while. Not that it is something I aspire to do but once in a while it’s good to just look up, close your eyes and let the drops hit you in the face.

Has it really been 2 years since my father-in-law passed? He really loved my son and daughter. He was really touched when he got to hold his first great-grandchild. He was a really good man. He really made me feel part of the family. He really loved his daughter. He was married to one woman only for a really long time. He really was something special and we really really miss him.

It’s going to be a really nice day, regardless of what the news might say or predict. And I hope everyone has a really good time.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • We have a very small group of people controlling the majority when it comes to getting something done about all the gun deaths in this country. It’s time for that to change.
  • Life is a trip, might as well get on board with it and go for a cruise.
  • I bet some politicians might have changed their tune about the NRA and their votes if their children had been in those schools.
  • Time to go ring up a big bill at the hardware store tomorrow.

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.
