Sounds of the day

Shouting out a very good day to all. Wishing the sky was blue but it is behind those clouds and rain.

The roosters behind us started going off at about 6:50 am this morning. Loud enough to hear over the tv that is on in the other room with the house closed up. Then there was activity in the kitchen and the smell of cinnamon buns almost done.

I step outside to the sound of falling rain and a slight breeze through the leaves remaining on the trees. The rambling of some sports talking head on the tv in the background that I should turn off and listen to some music.

The sound of my better half’s voice. The shuffling of bills. The washing machine running. And the familiar “dinners ready” that puts a hop in my step as I sprint upstairs. Well, sprint is a relative term for seniors.

Tonight the sounds of popcorn will fill the midnight air.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • People leave professions because of a lack of respect and not being heard. So we have our teacher shortage.
  • Even rainy days when put to good use are fun.
  • Explaining what went wrong seems to take a lot longer than saying what went right.

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.
