It’s Friday Folks
Friday August 10, 2012
Good morning to all!
Well the glitches seem to be fixed. Everything seems to be working properly today. For the last few days I was having trouble getting my blog out due to a series of glitches but all seems well today.
Speaking of today it’s raining again but guess what, It’s still a beautiful morning. I’m alive and healthy and blessed of the Lord. I won’t go hungry unless I chose to fast ;) or something. I have a good place to live with good working AC. I have my family… just so many things to be thankful for. I do my best to focus on the positive side of life. Accentuate the positive and you’ll feel better. Focus on the negative things of life you will be miserable and life’s just too short to be miserable. Drop that dead weight of negativism and begin accentuating the positive. There’s something good to be found in nearly everything.
I few days ago I mentioned that I felt like I had lost a little more weight but hadn’t stepped on a scale. Well, I did step on one and I HAVE lost a little more. I’m now down to 201 which means a 69 lb loss. I still have some more to go but I’m gettin’ there! Yeah ME! Thank you Lord!
Those around me know that I have taken my goatee and allowed it to become a beard but the pic you may see in the blog is a couple of years old and about 40 lbs heavier. I need to have a new one taken. I have also quit coloring my beard. I had been coloring it since my mid thirties. I let it go white a few months ago and I like the look.
Sweet as always
Is the title of the book I am currently writing. I know I know you’re impressed zzzzzzzz but I am so thrilled with it. I am enjoying it myself. How did I pick the name? Well, it’s just a working title but I thought if I had my dream house I would name it something. In doing so I would be following a long line of tradition which has fallen by the wayside in these modern times. My dream house is not the modern mansion on the hill but rather an older house with a wrap-around porch, high ceilings, tall windows, and great woodwork, a house with old world character and charm. The type I could turn into a grand ole Southern dwelling. I was sitting and dreaming of such a place one day when I decided to pick out a name for this place. After considering many names and finding that none of them felt right I turned on the TV and heard the name of the Scottish Castle and Estate called Balmoral. Something clicked so I wrote the name down and then dropped the “l” and voila! there is was. Now since I don’t have physical possession of my dream house I chose to make it the name of the house in the book.
(singing) yesterday all my troubles seemed so far away… just kidding One of those glitches I referred to earlier caused me to not post my blog. What happened? I was typing away and got near the end and poof everything was gone! Now this site has an auto save feature so no problem right? Wrong. When I checked the drafts there was nothing. No autosave that time. I didn’t want to go back and start over and retype all of that so I just let it go for that day.

Thanks for spending time with me today. Don’t forget, Jesus is coming soon.
Love to all
