What a stretch of good weather. Felt good being outside today working and trying to relax a little before an important call later today. I’m actually feeling good about the accomplishments today and the week ahead. But I hope to make a lot of progress tonight being I took a night of vacation.

Well, that call came, a bit late but it was worth the wait. A temporary reprieve from worry for a change of pace, I’m going to really enjoy this summer. It’s going to be special in so many ways.

I bet my neighbors are glad I’m not single. Because when I am (very rarely) the volume in the house and car go way up. Must be the inner teenager in me with the volume control because I’m usually searching for volume 11 on a scale of 1-10 when really inspired.

Wait till they discover my better half is gone for 4 days and I’ve turned Woodstock Maryland into Woodstock again. I hope they are down with the decibels for a few days. Don’t worry I’ll have the house shut so it will only feel like a minor earthquake at times depending on the artist.

Just kidding, I haven’t hooked up the big speakers, yet. But I have enjoyed a day filled with music. I hadn’t gone through the old Beatles collection in a long time.

The last day of spring said someone on the idiot box this morning. Ah, my favorite season is here. Time to shake and bake, twist and tan, boogie and beach. I’m going to celebrate tonight with a late-night cruise.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m blessed with the most beautiful birds around our home.
  • I was going to say “you won’t catch me flying anywhere soon.” But then I thought that is true for a lot of people now. They are just sleeping in airports though.
  • The less TV I watch the more enlightened I feel.
  • Fixed my downstairs phone finally. I know you’re asking yourself what is he talking about with this downstairs phone thing. Good thing I didn’t mention rotary phones.

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.
