Kick back


It had the potential to be a very busy day. But it was one that had a nice balance to it for a change. It started earlier than I hoped for but I managed to squeeze in a nap. Now before you assume I’m asleep at the switch I got 3 and half hours of sleep this morning so a nap for an hour isn’t really making up for much.

I took the time to vote today. But more importantly, I took the time to do some research on who I was voting for and why. I’ve always done that part but I’ve left out a very important part also. I haven’t participated in solutions or made my voice heard to those elected. So I’ve got to work on those things in the future also.

Felt good to take a short cruise today. Pulled the cover off the convertible and after voting I went to the Duchess sandwich shop. Went down to the lower lot in Ellicott City and watched the water go by on the Patapsco while eating a turkey and cheese and sipping on a Dr Pepper. I loved when I worked in this town.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When you say “relatively speaking” are you talking about family?
  • There is only what you do each day. And that is good enough for me.
  • Simple works for me a lot of the time.
  • Thinking is good. Doing is better.

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.
