Just so you know …


fishingA funeral procession pulled into a cemetery. Several carloads of family members followed a black truck towing a boat with a coffin in it.   A passer-by remarked, “That guy must have been a very avid fisherman.”  “Oh, he still is,” remarked one of the mourners. As a matter of fact, he’s headed off to the lake as soon as we bury his wife.”

Random Thoughts for Friday Morning


Funny-Iphone-08I’m not sure it’s a good thing to have a smart phone and a dumb owner.  I was wondering why it was never ringing until I researched the problem.  Gee, I wonder who put their smart phone on “DND”???  Dumb!

I can’t get motivated to work this morning.  I best finish this up and get after it.

Miss Lily is being a real pain this morning.  She is such an attention hog at times.

There’s just a touch of cool air in the breeze this morning.  It reminds me that Summer is almost half over and you know what is coming right behind it.

This is a yard work weekend.  I need to get some crabgrass control going here.

Mmmmmmmm!  My morning coffee is like the bringer of life to me.

And another phoneless day


75d3e221e9509ef10ea62b5a22ee8f3bYeh, I took off and left my iPhone sitting on the dining room table.  You would think that sooner or later I’d have it all down where I laid out everything that I needed to take with me in the morning to be all in the same location.  Yeh, that didn’t happen.

I’ll just pretend that I’m back in the 1990’s.  Remember those days?  That was back before mobile phones became glued to the sides of out heads.

Wednesday Morning


imageIt’s nice out there this morning.  It’s not going to last long given it’s summer and it’s Minnesota.  The heat and the humidity will rise today and it will make going outside interesting.  I don’t mind though.  It’s still much nicer than what I will be experiencing six months from now.  I shudder to even think about it.

My office smells like dark roast coffee.  I kind of like it since it has a bit of a bite to the taste but I still prefer my Kona.  Regardless, it goes now warm and rich.  I’m hoping that it somehow starts to motivate me to get some work done.  Things are starting to pile up and my desktop needs to be clear come next Monday morning.  Wow!  Yet another new month begins shortly.  Where does the time go to?  It all disappears in the blink of an eye.

Tuesday Morning


394736_250780108374571_1414514895_nMmmm!  Coffee!  The morning elixir and bringer of comfort in the wee hours of the dawn.  The one that warms the cockles of my heart as we emerge from this disaster that we would normally called Sunday and Monday.  The one that brings back pleasant memories of my youth and the days when I was a fair haired kid in uniform.  It jogs my brain and it reminded me of my usual morning prayer as I watched the morning sun rise on the eastern horizon of the Kuwait.

Dear God,

Please protect my antagonizers and keep them from saying something stupid and ignorant that will only piss me off while I savor this morning cup of coffee.  I really don’t feel like killing them on account of them being stupid but I am willing to cause some mayhem and severely maim them.

Thanks.

Monday Evening


bad-day5I’m just gonna sit here and watch the sun go down.  That is if I don’t fall asleep before that happens.  The one thing about waking up in the morning (other than you’re still alive) is getting the chance to put the previous day behind you and start over again.
