The Things We Do For Our Kids - 11/17/2015

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  It is really crazy what we will do for our kids.

Tonight, my daughter, Shelby, who has been under the weather recently, got me to eat a clove of garlic.


RANDOM THOUGHTS:  So this morning after coming in and filling up my water bottle, I promptly knocked it over and tried unsuccessfully to catch it and it ended up clanking (metal) a couple times on it's way to falling off my desk and into my garbage can.  When this happened, I had headphones on and was listening to the news.  While I continued listening to the news, I began to clean up the little bit of water that had spilled along with some of my tea that I spilled trying to not let my water bottle spill.

The Blind Guy

Sometimes you notice something in normal, everyday life that get people talking.  This is such an event.

The Blind GuyRANDOM UPDATE:  Something you don't see every day...a blind guy driving a truck on the freeway.

Carry on,


Brad Lloyd - That's why they put the raised reflectors on the center lines...it is braille for blind drivers.

Does It Get Any Better Than This - 8/13/2016

Does It Get Any BetterRANDOM THOUGHTS:  A man, his dog, reclining in a chair in Cascade, Idaho.  Does it get any better than this?

Well...it would be better if I had my wife with me here.
And...if all six of my girls were here.
And...if all seven of my grandkids were here.
And...if I had three large pizzas, half Canadian bacon, half pepperoni and sausage.

NOT FRIENDS - 8/12/2016

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  4am...we are not friends.  To be truthful, I really don't like you very much at all.  In all of my 55 years on this earth, I do not ever remember a time that I have been glad to see you when you when I saw you face to face.  In fact, it is always just the opposite and I always wish you would just go away.

Only God and Peanut Know - 6/8/2016

Praying PeanutRANDOM THOUGHTS:  This picture is of me and my world famous dog, Peanut Butter Wood in my prayer closet yesterday morning.  PBW insisted to me that she was in fact, praying with me in there.

I don't want to be dogmatic but I have my doubts and think she may have been doing what she does 12+ hours a day...sleeping. Only PBW and God know for sure.

Carry on,

My Hairy Friend - 6/8/2016

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Last night I discovered something that I had not ever really noticed or thought of before.  As luck (maybe good...maybe bad) would have it, I have decided to share this revelation with you now.  You are welcome...or...I'm very sorry, in advance.  Choose your side after you read on.

The Tality of It All - 5/2/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Something just occurred to me and I thought I would run it by you all.

So Many Questions - 4/7/2016

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I had a thought a few minutes ago and so I thought I would just run it by you all and see what you think.

If a "MOTORCADE" by definition is a procession or parade of automobiles or other motor vehicles...and a "BARRICADE" is a defensive barrier hastily constructed, as in a street, to stop an enemy...then why isn't a "BEARICADE" by definition a procession or parade of bears or other bear like animals or a defensive sleuth of bears hastily brought in, as in a street, to stop an enemy???

My Own Town - 3/29/2016

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I just thought of something so cool that I just had to share it with you all.  You are very welcome...in advance.

As I was walking to get a cup of "wake me up" coffee...this thought...wonderful gift even, possibly even epiphany occurred to me.

If I ever become rich and I am able to buy my own town, I am promptly going to change the name to "Cognito."  Then whenever some asks me where I am, I can say...wait for it...a little longer...almost there, "Well, I am in-Cognito."

Wow...now that my friends...would be soooo cool.
