What's For Lunch?

Well, I came in from doing a couple of hours work outside, plopped down at one end of the dinner table and said, "What's for lunch?"
As Amber walked by she said, "What about a frozen Mexican dinner?"
I then responded, "I guess that will do."

Within a few seconds there was a loud "Bam!" as the still frozen dinner hit one end of the table and slid the table's entire length coming to a stop in front of me. Hmm, I wonder, no it's not her birthday, it's not our anniversary and I've already told her that I loved her a couple of times when we got up this morning. Well, I guess she'll let me know...I wonder what temperature you set the oven on to heat this thing up?

If I Could

If I could sing, millions would want to dance to my songs. If I could act, thousands would cry as I spoke my words. If I was a hero, hundreds would applaud my cause. If I could write words that made a difference, people could see the possibilities and ignore the obvious. Alas, I am but one of millions with songs in my heart, with dreams chasing away reality, with visions of bravery, and simple words born from the wisdom of so many souls.

Tough Work Place

Watching a local TV news broadcast the other day they led into a commercial break with, "Up next, a local man who did not show up for work today was found shot to death in his home." 
My first thought was, "Wow! That's a little harsh for just missing one day of work!"

Being A Gentleman

The way things are these days, you can pretty much bet if a man opens the car door for his wife, either the car is new or the wife is.

Ignorance Is Bliss

If ignorance is bliss, it seems to me that there should be more happy people out and about. I know I am one happy camper.

Finally Something Believable

Well, I was watching the news today at lunch and of course most of it dealt with what we used to call politics and the convention. They had to tell us what everybody has said to this point and then tell us what they ment because we can't figure that out for ourselves. Then they finally touched on something interesting toward the end of the news. It seems some dude has discovered what makes up the rings around the planet Saturn...they are made up of lost luggage from airlines. Finally something believable!

When To Teach Children How Yo Tell Time

One of the challenges of being a young parent has to do with bedtime especially if,  for some reason, you wanted the kids in bed earlier than usual. This turmoil can be avoided if you just don't teach your kids how to tell time. Amber and I didn't teach our girls how to tell time until they started dating.
