What a beautiful day. One full of fun and laughter. It’s impossible not to be happy when you have a chatty 3-year-old ruling the house. Of course, we are both beat, when the day is over.

I hear there is some strong surf but dangerous rip currents out there on the Atlantic beaches. That’s mother nature for you. Not that you will find me out in rough surf anymore. And being 150 miles from the beach also makes it difficult to do right now.

Missing you

I’ve been missing some people very much lately. Especially my parents. My mother’s birthday is this weekend and she would have been 99. I don’t know why I’m so emotional lately about that. Maybe just an accumulation of things.

I think I’ll work on teaching my grandchildren some of the strengths she gave us.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I wish my children could listen to the music I love and have the same feeling I get from it. But like they say, “You had to be there.”
  • The time between my head hitting the pillow and being asleep is about as short as it can be tonight.
  • Weekends are the best, until retirement.

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.
