Mother Nature is ready to give us a blow in the next few days. Far less than the destructive ones that are hitting other parts of the nation. I see the local power company has tagged a few trees for trimming in the back that is too near a pole and transformer. I believe that is the incoming power for most of the neighborhood. I hope these winds don’t beat them to it. I’m not in the mood to lose power.

Seems like we are living on an increasingly extreme planet. Might have to be one of my priorities in the future. I have two beautiful oaks out front that are fairly close to the house. But as I hear more and more trees snap over time I get more nervous about those out front.

On the other hand, it will kill me to have those taken out. They are so beautiful and shady during the summer months. And where would I be without slipping on my behind once a year from all the acorns they drop? And I can’t image the revolt among the squirrels.

Trees can really make a property. They can also cause a lot of destruction when they come down. Kind of has me thinking maybe I’ll prepare a few posts tomorrow morning just in case we have a long outage.

I’m far from 100% but what the hell, got to make the best of every day. It’s transition day when I change from that nocturnal beast into Joe normal again. Always a tough day like Sunday into Monday where I’m up for 24+ hours usually. So it’s time to catch up on some shut-eye to make up for lost hours.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When I get my strength back that treadmill and I are going to become daily friends.
  • I hope my neighbor’s son makes the O’s again this year. It’s got to be very special playing MLB in your hometown.
  • Aging is interesting. The longer you age the more interesting it gets.
  • It’s going to feel good when I feel good again.

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.
