Is It a Crock? - 7/9/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  So, today we are having an area team building event. In the past couple times, we have had a big BBQ.  This year, they are mixing it up by doing a Cajan theme.  They have flown in "live" craw-fish from Louisiana as well as alligator...(though not live).  A few friends and I were talking about this as none of us have ever had alligator.

Copy That - 7/8/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS: I heard some people talking on "walkie talkies" this morning. If you ever listen to such talk, you will hear them constantly saying, "Copy that" and sometimes "Over." It made me think back over the years of hearing "WT" talk throughout my life. It occurred to me that in all that time I have never hear anyone say, "Paste that" or "Under." That seems very one sided and a little strange if you ask me.

A Fish Story - 7/3/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Humor break:  So my friend Larry and I went up to McCall Lake for some sweet fishing.  Larry is an avid fisherman and me, well, not so much, although I have watched a few fishing shows on TV.  When we got the the beautiful lake, we rented a boat from the boat rental place.  Very soon, we were out on the water and on to a spot chosen by Larry, where we dropped anchor.

Three Years Later - 6/5/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Today marks three years since my mom closed her eyes to this world and opened them to the next.  It has been three years of tremendous changes, loss and challenges to say the least but I am still standing and moving forward.

A Leap of Faith - 5/9/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I had an absolutely brilliant idea last night, even if I do say so myself...and so far, it is just me saying it. I think it is probably like that story about the one crab trying to get out of the bucket while all the others pull him back down, kind of thing.

Anyway, when talking with my wife, Denice, I had the thought...revelation maybe, an epiphany at best. What occurred to me was the perfect excuse for anything you don't want to talk about, want to change the subject with or if you just need something to blame something on.

Young is Old When? - 5/9/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  An important questioned popped into my head a little bit ago. I have no answer so I am coming to you to gain knowledge. So here goes...get ready. How long do you have to keep "egg foo young" before it will be considered "egg foo old?" Thoughts? Comments?  -David

Memorable Thought - 4/29/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I wanted to sign up for a website that helps keep your brain sharp and improves memory by playing interactive games. The problem is, I can't remember the the name of the site, where I saw it or why I am looking for it. On the bright side, I did just find my keys...David

Sleeping with the Enemy - 4/23/2013

Random Thoughts:  Peanut asked me last if she could sleep with one of my ducks.  I think she had secret plans to chew him to feathers as I slept.  Her plan was foiled when I pressed the duck's left wing and the it began to sing, "Splish Splash I Was Taking a Bath."  As it turns out, Peanut does not like baths or singing ducks.  Go figure!  I didn't see that one coming.

That's Just Ducky - 4/22/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  I was cleaning out my closet tonight and came across some of my ducks.  My mom use to give me a duck every year for Christmas because of my ability to talk and sing like a duck.  I have not had any new ones in the past three Christmas' because I lost her in June of 2010 after a long battle with Parkinson's disease.  This pile...or gaggle...or pack...or flock of ducks represents about 9 Christmas'.

Rock Solid Ideas - 4/23/2013

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Yes, this is a cup that is half filled with rocks.  I found it on a shelf while cleaning out my closet.  I love to collect souvenirs from various places I visit (and no, I do not have your jewelry or TV) to help preserve the fun memories.
