Good morning

Had another model for portraiture work show up early today but she was very shy and left as I said hello. I’ll have to work on my approach.

Unplanned maintenance was completed yesterday. The yard service that a few neighbors hired to do their lawns we also had doing our lower back yard. The part I used to do with the push mower and string trimmer because it’s so steep.

Well, it has been about 6 weeks I figure since they came. I wasn’t going to wait for it to get so long that I was going to have trouble. It still took me a while because the spots were so high. On the good side, it saved me a few bucks. All that dry weather helped save a cutting also. Plus it’s a good workout, I’m sure I lost a pound or two doing it.

And we’re halfway through the season so I’ll just take care of it this year and hopefully find a reliable young man to do it next year. The 3/4 acre in the front and upper back are enough of a job already.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Woke up kind of conflicted about what I’d like to do today and what I want to do today and what I need to do today.
  • Sometimes I feel rusty with some tasks. Not with power tools.
  • Love is in actions, not words.
  • I wonder when I do multiple posts in one day if I should label them “More Random Thoughts of the Day.”
  • Rarely in life do you find everything you need. Don’t forget to still be happy when you don’t have what you need.
  • I used to enjoy sitting in a waiting room. People would make eye contact. People would exchange pleasantries. People would strike up a conversation. Now everyone just sits slumped over looking at their smartphone. Another reason we are forgetting to really communicate with each other.

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.
