Words

Sometimes it’s necessary to remind people of the meaning of words.

purpose

  • n.The object toward which one strives or for which something exists; an aim or goal: synonym: intention.

honor

  • noun High respect, as that shown for special merit; recognition or esteem.
  • noun Good name; reputation.

pledge

  • n.A solemn binding promise to do, give, or refrain from doing something.

oath

  • n.A solemn, formal declaration or promise to fulfill a pledge, often calling on God, a god, or a sacred object as witness.

There was a time when all men took these words seriously. All men.

I know a lot of men who still do.

Some things weigh very heavy on the mind and heart.

And that is the end of the lesson tonight.

That’s all. That’s the post.

Time Slips Away


It doesn’t take long to stop and enjoy what you happen to enjoy in life. It’s really only stopping for five minutes and taking in what’s around you. I don’t take my camera out of the bag enough; I’m guilty of looking straight down the road and only focusing on the destination as of late when I should be taking time to enjoy the journey.


There’s so much to see and I forget sometimes that I have to work for a living; I am a husband and father, and those come first. And I like my job and love my family.


But what I do, not best and not what I enjoy most, what’s at my core and gives me peace and alone time is this:

Just wandering and exploring and watching the revival of this and destruction of that. I’m an observer; I keep the record so that others might see what we were and what we are to become.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Remember Them Every Day

Today is Memorial Day.

Not a day for those who serve.

Not a day for those who have served.

Today is a day for those that made the ultimate sacrifice and never made it out of uniform. Who never again had the chance to enjoy the freedoms we take for granted on a daily basis.

I served. I am as guilty as anyone else of not remembering and being grateful for what I have.

They should be remembered every day.

They are the reason for this day.

They are the reason for all the days we spend free.

They sacrificed themselves in the name of our country, for their brothers and sisters, in service of something greater than themselves.

Remember them every day.

That’s it. That’s the post.

I Took The Kids

Shopping. I took the kids shopping today.

Mom has to get her CEUs in and needed a quiet house.

#REBELS

So we went out in search of Christmas presents for mom and to pick up the elder child’s glasses that came in yesterday.

Fun day. Tiring day. I almost forgot to post tonight.


If you’ve never watched Two Sentence Horror Stories, it’s on Netflix and fairly entertaining.

I’m probably a late adopter again.

That’s it. That’s the post.

I’m watching again tomorrow. Wondering if it’s time.

There’s a lot that we the people put up with that we shouldn’t have to.

The Declaration of Independence was put forth due to a lot of the same things happening when it was written that are happening in many states now.


A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.


It’s funny but a lot of people would see that prince as Trump. I don’t. I’ve watched the man do more good than anyone expected.

I’m not calling for open revolution and this isn’t a political page. But there’s something deeply wrong with our system that must be corrected.

This is just me writing it down.

Getting it off my chest.

And We’re Back…

In school that is.

We gave the kids the choice of remote learning or going back to face to fac…

And that’s how the conversation went. They both jumped at the chance to return to school and be around their friends.

And so, here we are. Being safe, following the rules, begrudgingly.

We’re seeing what a lot of people who have opened their eyes are seeing.

But, we’re back. Sort of.

I Have To Try

I’m going to try a little something new.

I’m going to remove virtually all social media from my phone. I’ll leave social media apps on my iPad, but on my phone it’s just a distraction during the day.

Work to do, family to be with.

I’m keeping Instagram and Twitter.

Instagram is more the pics for me. If things start getting too political or woke on an account I’ll stop following. I love some of the people I follow and the way they see the world. Plus, I have some actual friends on there.

Twitter…

Twitter isn’t social media. Twitter is anti-social for the most part. Sure you’ll run across the odd egg that’s genuine and wants to interact, I experienced that this week. Besides the fact that Twitter is short and fast, hardly a distraction. I might check that on a break but not during work all day.

Man I miss the Plus. Shows how old this pic is.

So anyway, it’s a plan. Not a fully realized β€œyes this will work” plan, but a plan.

β€”β€”-

This is coming from some old experiences and some more recent. The groups I’ve joined on FB are okay but you hit that occasional one where everybody in the group thinks they know exactly how the world should work. And they’re wrong. I’m fifty-two years old and I STILL don’t know how the world works. I still don’t understand women. But that’s another story.

The whole world is a German Circus.

Taking a break…

Taking a break from the political for a bit.

I’m tired.

I’m mostly tired of people just taking every single little conspiracy theory they come across, or the next shocking picture or article and just running with it.

I’m tired of morons with access to the internet believing every little thing they hear.

I’m tired of people who are pinning all their hopes and dreams on one or two people (that the different sides of government picked) and going straight up fanatical about them.

POTUS isn’t the second coming. I know that. He knows that. I just wish his fans would get it.

Biden is just a tired, old man. This isn’t an insult, I’m a tired old man, too. No, he’s being used and handled. And the people who are doing it should be brought up on charges for elder abuse.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Adventure Day

The daughter is in band camp.

I’ve got a short day tomorrow for work.

So me and the son are gonna try and have an adventure. Sometimes this takes us mountain climbing. Sometimes we get wet. You really never know what’s gonna happen.

Stay tuned.
