Happy New Years!


Just a few hours left until midnight and I sit here alone in my thoughts.  No TV.  No music playing.  Just peace and quiet.  Time alone to contemplate how the past year went and where I would like to be at the end of this new year.

  • I’m grateful and appreciative of having another year above ground.
  • I’m grateful that I’m almost at the end of a long year of surgical repairs with only one remaining.
  • I’m grateful that I was finally able to travel once again and I look forward to next Fall.
  • I’m grateful for the people that I’ve come to know and interact with.
  • I’m blessed to still have family and, more importantly, have grands who want to be a part of my life so I can show the some of the magic in this world.

I wonder how many years I have left on this earth.

I wonder if I will ever come to terms with my supervisor or if 2020 will be the year that we part company and I go my separate way and move on with life.

So many things to think about but none to be obsessing over.  Time will tell.


Monday Morning


Well now.  This is more like it for this part of the Hundred Acre Wood.  The roads are greasy and Minnesota drivers are piling into one another.  Yep!  Welcome to Minnesota where the roads are crap in the winter and the drivers are worse.
