Fried Friday

1 Comment

The day started by sharing news of a very good friend who lost her husband, with my better half. We just stood and hugged each other very strongly for a long while in silence. It brought home the reality of losing a spouse. Also, another very close friend is still hospitalized from an accident and in tough shape awaiting the first surgery. Between this news, my job, not feeling good, and not sleeping I’m FRIED.

Thank goodness my granddaughter was here today to put a little cheer in my life and remind me to enjoy the moment. I also allowed myself 30 minutes of fun when I took the Miata out for a spin. Trouble is that it’s Howard County, it’s the holiday season and people have lost their Vulcan minds behind the wheel.

The day ends with posting the services information for the friend who suffered the loss to our Facebook group from our old company. I hope the outpouring of support there and all around her envelops her and her family tonight.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Even though I might not be good at the words I use, I’m rarely at a loss for them, like I was today.
  • Rain coming again later this weekend, better put the cover back on my favorite go-cart.
  • If you feel the need to put up more Xmas lights go ahead. But if you’re doing it after looking at neighbors, just hold off.
  • Rewarding – when a 3-year-old runs at you full speed after getting out of her car seat and jumps in your arms and says let’s play Papa.

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.
