2015 #13

As we gather here this evening to remember our past and the errors we have committed.  Let us not forget that some where along the way maybe we did some good things.  More often than not we dwell on mistakes we have made.  Decisions that were not the best.  We are our own worst critic.  Let us use these mistakes as a learning tool.  What have I done in my life that was so wrong?  Sure there have been lapses in judgment.  Things that I could have done differently.  Minor mistakes that hurt me mostly.  Let us look ahead and be a better person tomorrow than we were yesterday.  Kinder more accepting of other people.  Our history used to be written in stone now it is in the"Cloud".  Is this progress.  The writers in stone are now without a job.  Did they tell their children to study hard and get into that line of work?  What line of work do encourage your children to study for?  The buggy whip maker went away.  Sin and evil have been a constant thru our history.  Is this a good career choice?

Have good evening.

2:38 am, can't get to sleep tonight.  My mind keeps going over different things.  Another shooting in a movie theater.  To many copy cats out there.  Troubled souls get left behind and don't know how to catch up.  Family life is not enough anymore.  Troubled kids come from troubled families.  Can't tell right from wrong. 

Not much else going on.  Taking care of business. 

Have a pleasant day, be kind and understanding.

A rare summer rain has brought some relief to Southern California.  Saturday we had thunder and lighting and a considerable amount of rain for this area.  The mountains received more and there were some mud slides.  The draw back is is very muggy.  We can deal with that for a few days.  Kinda nice for a change.

Travel plans being firmed up this weekend.  I will not be going but I am excited about the trip anyway.  It's nice to hear the excitement in their voices.  I am sure they will have a wonderful time and enjoy each others company.

My brother and sister will be here with me while they are away.  So that we will have some time together.  Haven't spent that much time with them for many years.

Our daughter was here from San Diego for the weekend.  Always such a joy when she comes to visit.  She has become a lovely adult.  I love her so much, there's not much Dad wouldn't do to support her.

Things happening around here are normal.  Quiet street good neighbors.  Health wise we are doing well.

I wish you peace and love in your life.

Tomorrow will mark 239 years our country has been in existence.  We were born out of rebellion and a desire to be free.  How could a upstart take on the British Empire.  The British had colonial country's all over the world.  We weren't a large population, nor were we rich.  We had men who were leaders.  Who wanted a better way of life for themselves and their fellow country men.  A shared sacrifice to achieve a goal.  The men who wrote the Constitution did a masterful job.  No way they could have know what the future would hold, but the crafted a document that has stood the test of time.  I will pause on July 4, 2015 and give thanks to the men who laid out a frame work for a great country.  I am proud to be a citizen of the United States of America.  God Bless the USA!!!!!

Some what warm here in SoCal.  But then it is summer, so it's expected.  There is not much going on, we are taking it easy.  Go out in the early evening and water the plants, enjoy the evening breeze from the ocean.  Sunday I may watch some of the FIFA World Cup for Women, hope the US gets the win.

Enjoy the 4th.  Be careful, drive safely.

July 1, 2015.  The year is half over or is it half to go.  Fifty Fifty I say.  The first six months of 2015 have been good.  Celebrated 50th Anniversary with my lovely wife JP.  Our daughters and Grandson were here to celebrate with us.  It has been a wonderful ride these past fifty years.  I say I am in a comfortable state of mind and happy.  After 50 years you would be surprised  at how we have adapted to each other.  Very good feeling.

Today was the end of the second quarter, so there were household closing paperwork.  It is nice to end the month with a surplus in the bank account.  

Have a great day.
