Can’t start the day without thanks to our Veterans on Veterans Day. Such commitment and sense of duty by so few to protect so many.

It felt good to sleep in a bit this morning. Didn’t crawl out of bed till almost 7:30 am. But we are rocking and rolling today.

I’m attacking the workroom/shop to make it a productive facility again. Organizing, trashing, hanging, and cleaning. Woodworking and engraving are something I’ve been learning slowly but I need a lot of practice. I’ve made a few simple pieces but creating something from a material is pretty fulfilling.

I hope to squeeze in a few photos between some short trips and errands. And tonight I hope to make a ton of progress and finish up my Eastern Shore wall of images and the Arlington Cemetery wall.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When you change things up, you learn things.
  • If you’re the last picked for the team, use it to surprise people.
  • The more you know about yourself, the more you will be able to tell more about others.
  • You can learn a lot from communication, or the lack of it.

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.
