RANDOM THOUGHTS: This morning I typed the word, ponder. I have used this word many times in my life but today...it revealed itself more personally to me. It occurred to me in a epiphany...that this is the true definition of the word.
Ponder: To think about something deeply while walking near or around a pond.
Yes, it is true...Ponder is the joining as one of pond and wander. In mathematic form, it is...pond + wander = ponder.
You are all very welcome in advance.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Today, I went to Sportsman's Warehouse with my son inlaw, Casey. While we were there, we thought we would look at some of their camo gear. We took a look around and I was amazed at their lack of seasonal camo merchandise.
I was so disappointed, I took a couple of pictures of where it should have been so you could see for yourself this monstrous merchandising failure. (M.M.F.)
If you are looking for camo gear, don't bother looking there because you certainly will not find it.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: This morning as I was getting ready to leave for work, I became more aware to something I already knew. I just noticed again and it made me smile that every time I talk to Peanut Butter Wood, her tail will start to wag. That logically made me think about the difference between dogs and cats.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: In this picture, is Sharon, who is a good friend of my wife, Denice and mine. On Saturday, Denice and I attended the wedding of some other good friends, Erik and Katie's daughter, Hailey. It was a beautiful wedding and was made even better because of running into Sharon along with even more friends, Breck, Nina and Dixie.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I am finding that getting older is much like getting ready to eat one of my favorite cereals as a kid and even now sometime as an adult.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I am having an issue with my left thigh that I will name, "Irritating Vibrating Leg Syndrome" or IVLS. This must be brought on by running because I have not had it while I was on break from softball between summer and fall season. But now after last nights game...buzzzz...there is is again. This is what is happening.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: This is how many days go in my life. You might even classify it as "typical."
Lately, I have been noticing some crabgrass trying to make headway into the edges of my lawn. Areas of general broad-leaf have also been making their move, quietly popping up here and there while trying to lay low and stay inconspicuous. So today, I set out to counter all their progress of late.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Oh the irony of life. Yesterday I shared a story on Facebook where the life example came from a fence that had been busted up where Denice and I use to take our walks when we lived in Boise. When I got home last night, this is what my fence at my house looked like.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Having to drive in a construction area every day that slows traffic to a crawl, allows me to see things I might miss otherwise. Today, I saw just such a thing.
I had a little ISUZU truck behind me. Since the "S" and "Z" are virtually the same style lettering in the name, just reversed, it said something to me when I looked in my mirror. It said, "USUZI." I thought, what? I am Suzi? Could this be true? All these years I had never been called Suzi by another vehicle but here while slowing all the traffic life down, it had happened.

THE SOFTBALL PRAYER: Dear Lord, as you know I have a softball game at 7:45 tonight. Currently the car says that it is 91 degrees outside. I'm just letting You know in advance that I'm on board if You would like to drop the temperature to the low eighties and/or maybe bring in a nice cloud cover.
