# 22 Random

I 'am so blue spent my hold day thinking of you

summer time is coming and I have nothing to look forward to

oh to be in your arms in the summer's hue

I shall have to wait for the fall to be near you

Had lunch today at five guys.  Very tasty.  My honey and me together in a sit down fast food place after my doctor visit.  Question "Can a beef burger be well done and still juicy?".  The fries looked bad but were tasty. 

April is my birth month.  I will be getting questions about what I want.  Very seldom do I have an answer.  I have been blessed with a lovely family and am very content with their love.  I guess my b-day wish is to be healthy and sane for a few more years.  I will be happy with a card from those I love.

We are waiting for delivery of our table top planter.  JP has plans to have some home grown veggies and other things.  She has some lovely flowers in the garden.  Curb appeal of our house is very high.  I hope she takes a photo and post it in her blog.

Take care,  walk on the good side.

# 21 Troubled Mind

Hello readers, having trouble getting to sleep tonight.  My day was fine, feeling good.  Just so many thoughts running through my mind tonight.  You ever have a night where sleep just doesn't seem to ease the worry you feel?  I had several when I was working.  Now it seems I have them a couple of times each month.  There is not much going on in my life, just normal daily activity.  Concern about others.  Our country the divide and hard feeling between our people.  Some choices younger members of my family have made.  As a young man out of high school, out of work my Grand Mother used to ride me pretty hard.  I know she meant well but it rubbed me the wrong way.  I try to be supportive without being overbearing.  Times are different now than when I was young.  I guess I need to be there when they need me, but relax and let them find their own path.  There are many ways to live life.  We each have to find out what life means to us.  We are here on this earth for a very short period of time in the big scheme of things.  Each of us have to find our own way. 

Enjoy life, family, and friends.

#20 Anniversary and More

Yesterday my wife and I celebrated being married 52 years.  We had a joyful yet non eventful day.  Memories kept coming to mind.  My wife is and immigrant from Spain.  We met in Spain, had a courtship there.  On Christmas Day I asked her father for her hand in marriage.  I bring this up because she will always call Spain her home country.  Some customs and holidays mean more to her Spanish side.  Her home country now is the USA.  We built a life here, had children here and raised them here.  We have all been back to Spain to visit and enjoy what that country offers.  I respect her love of her home country and share some fond memories. 

We have two daughter who we love very much.  They grew up to be outstanding adults.  They have different views on politics than we do.  I applaud and respect those views. 

Take care hug someone you love.  Be kind and respectful to others.
