Livin’ the dream!

Thirty-Eight

As I was walking back from the mailbox at the end of the drive last week, I stopped to take in the view (shown in the image above). The sky was breathtaking. My photo really doesn’t do it justice. For a moment, all was right with the world. I was … Continue reading →

2022 Goals

As I like to do every January 1, I am posting my goals for the new year. Over the past few years, I have had some hits and misses. However, I have always felt like I made good on my promise to pursue any first-of-the-year plans shared here on the … Continue reading →

2021: A Year of Art

Another year. Another 365 rotations of this insignificant rock revolving around a glowing ball of nuclear fusion. It is merely one of billions in the Milky Way, a blip on the cosmic scale amongst its trillions of brethren. But, it is my tiny little rock, and I happen to like … Continue reading →

The Bath

The wide, six-foot-two man dipped a toe into the whirlpool tub to check the water temp. It was a bit tepid, at least for his desires in the moment. He bumped the knob over, turning up the heat. At 37, he has gotten to the age where some of those … Continue reading →

The Christmas Tree

One of the things I have always wanted was a great big Christmas tree in my own home. Over the years, as an adult, there has always been something that stood in the way of that happening …

2021-2022 Network TV Schedule

2021 Goals

As I look back on the past year, it is hard to believe everything that happened. I am a proud owner of a new home that sits on 2.5 acres of land. I have worked as a full-time writer at WP Tavern for over a year. Plus, so many other … Continue reading →

2020: Counting My Blessings

I thought 2019 was a whirlwind of a year. 2020 decided to blindside us all, right? No year in review post can be written without mentioning the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in passing. As much as I hate what has happened to so many families this year, it has been … Continue reading →

Two-Car Garage; No White-Picket Fence

I have had the headline for this post ready to go for nearly two months now. I originally expected to close on my new home in early November. But, the closing date was pushed back. Pushed back again. And, pushed back once more. You just learn to roll with it. … Continue reading →
