Just beautiful

Days like this with ultra blue skies and low to mid-70s for the temps with a mild breeze are just wonderful. We were able to use the deck with the company today and hopefully tomorrow also. We had a great lunch at EC Diner together. A meeting of the family (adults) once every 3 months minimum to catch up and stay on the same page.

Let us remember what the Weekend is About. Just take a few minutes and pause each day to give thanks to so many for our freedom.

Military cemeteries might be the one place in this country where everyone shows respect for everyone else.

Even though Arlington is difficult for many to visit it is one of the most beautiful places.

When visiting Arlington I try not to shoot anyone who is visiting loved ones or friends from the front.

In my personal opinion, the Supreme Court blew it again with its decision with regard to the EPA and Clean Water Act this past Thursday.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I try to remind myself to think like a youngster when trying to create. It should be no problem, my better half says I’m still a teenager.
  • It’s ok to say thank you to your parents even after their passing.
  • It bothers me when my car is dirty.
  • The thought of back to work tomorrow is not an appealing one.

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.
