Super start

The weekend has been great so far and today will be the icing on the cake. The effort to make the best use of time is progressing. Of course that slap-in-the-face reality of the job that pays the bills starting just before sunset tonight looms. But till then, let the party begin.

It’s that time of year I think about my daughter and daughter-in-law who are both teachers. I always pause for a few minutes and try to wish them some good karma that it’s a successful and happy year. For I know the reality is filled with pressure and stress. May you each find the extraordinary patience needed for dealing not only with the kids but the parents also. And may you again find those special moments in the gems of those young minds that make teaching rewarding. And good luck to all teachers.

And please watch out on the roads for the buses and young ones running in and out.

Random Thoughts of the Day (morning edition)

  • There are few things that make me as happy as when I see my wife happy.
  • These are the days of summer that will stick in my memory banks to carry me through winter.
  • I really like the movie quote from Tombstone – “Doc Holliday: What did you ever want? Wyatt Earp: Just to live a normal life. Doc Holliday: There’s no normal life, Wyatt, it’s just life. Get on with it.”

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.
