Well, the year is done, and the inevitable “Year in Review”, and “New Year, New You” posts are coming. I have a blog (that I occasionally write in), so I figured I would jump in and contribute. A bit over a year ago, I was in a rough place. Thanks to COVID I had been … Continue reading Oh Look!! Another “Year In Review” Blog!!
I spend way, way, WAY too much time on my phone, doing pointless things. It frustrates me greatly. I know that I should spend less time on it than I do, but somehow I always end up picking up my phone and staring at social media. My phone. (Kingsman is an AMAZING movie!)

We went to a friends cabin and spent a few days there, just my wife and … Continue reading Wake Me When September Ends!
