From the very beginning we have relied on soldiers, to protect us, to protect our democracy, and to fight tyranny.
A great big thank you to all our men and women in the Armed Forces! And to those who have served already!
God bless you, we are so grateful to you!
Happy Veterans Day!

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”
Booker T. Washington

Happy New Year everyone! No I’ve not had too much eggnog!
Ok, I admit it, it’s not really the New Year quite yet, but I’m taking a little break, and it will be 2019 soon!
And this is a good time to say thank you for a wonderful year. So thank you!
I realize my work is not as popular as it once was, but I’m still having a great time. I love writing even though I don’t make any money from it!
On my break I’ll be spending time with family, and working on my novel that I’ve mentioned before.
I’ve learned and grown this past year so I’m redirecting the novel, just slightly to reflect that.
I need to recharge, and I’m beginning a new exercise program! I want look good for my honey, who I refer to as My Love!
I have scheduled a few posts until I return.
My wife and I wish you a healthy, happy 2019, great peace, and wonderful blessings!!!

Our union with the divine will be so much more glorious
when we walk in this world
in our hearts.

In the jungles, on the beaches, and in the deserts
on the city streets, so many brave men and women
losing their lives, for you, and for me – our freedom,
on the line. The least we can do is remember
and say a prayer or two.

I’m so grateful for the different cultures and races we have on our planet. We are so beautifully different, and each is a part of this earth. Thank you for being who you are, and for being here, a part of this blog. Many of you have a different faith, or culture than I do. I think that is good and healthy.
The Great One knows each of us of course, and I believe He smiles at us, because we are so different, unique in every way. And by the way I am an amateur anthropologist (I have no degree in it) and I have studied cultures and faiths on my own, for many years.
You are welcome here regardless of your background, or faith. Thanks again for reading.
I wish you peace.

It was the wind and the salt air, that wore the grooves into his face. Forty years on the water will do that to a person. He still managed to smile though, and his wife loved his crooked grin.
Every day there was the armor of the trade, a slicker, a hat, and the always wet gloves. His battle scar was the dull ache in his back, that never went away. The sun often cheered him though, with the occasional dolphins jumping.
And every night there was a victory – because there was always enough food to eat. And their house was always warm, in the wintertime.
It was a very good life indeed.
