The Back Half of 2017

It has been almost 8 months since my last posting here and honestly there has been so much it’s almost hard to keep up. The time I can donate to at minimum writing anything down much less attempt to put together a cohesive thought is  getting more and more infrequent. This ironically that shadows my…

Tidal Wave of Illness.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Statistically a definite probability. The sickness. With two kids in school now, nose picking, lackluster hand washing and general carelessness….infecting the house with some form of disease is a real struggle early in the school season. However against all odd’s, I was the one who brought it…

Time to Play Catch-Up

  I have been horrible at keeping this thing updated and for good reason….It seems finding the time is one of the biggest hurdles to actually sitting down and putting thoughts to a page.  There have been a lot of things that have occurred over the last few months that I think are noteworthy.  So…

Almost Summer Time…..Whats That Mean?

I can’t even begin to explain how much I love Spring and Summer……This means lots of things around our house. It means yard work, beer, lawn chairs, lake season, sandals, and BBQ. All these things can even exist in one day and at the same time. Its really a thing of beauty. Although I never…
