07-22-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Just One” If you could change one thing in the past or get a glimpse of one thing in the future which would it be?...Me, I’d probably go back to change one thing cause the future’s coming whether I see it or not. The big question to me would be what to change? Do you stop a war, feed the poor buy shares of Microsoft at a dollar a piece, stop the production of Godfather III (unless Robert Duvall was in it), don’t give the ball to Ernest Byner, don’t call red right 88, the decisions are just too overwhelming???? What would do the most good if you could change just one thing...I guess it all depends on the perspective of what is good…plain and simple.
07-21-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Pop Tops” Remember taking those pop (or beer) tops off the cans and stringing them together like they were collectable historical archives or something? I use to hang my collection right on the rearview mirror of my 69 Impala…ya that was real smart. Or how bout breaking them off into two pieces and shooting them at each other…ya that was real safe...do you remember how they were everywhere? On the tree lawns next to the all the curbs in the street, even in the sand on the beaches! It wasn’t summer until one of us stepped on one and cut there foot!...well all I know is at least we don’t have to worry about those darn things anymore…although, I did save a brown paper bag full of my ‘pop’ tops that use to hang on that 69 Impala…I have no idea why!!!...plain and simple.
07-18-14-My Morning Thoughts: What do ya think of the term “just deal with it”…it could be a pull your boots up and take charge kind of thing or it could be the…it aint my problem kind of thing. I guess it’s how it’s said context wise on which way it’s meant. Anyway, I prefer…is there anything I can do to help you get through this situation kind of thing…but that’s just me…have a great weekend and if ya have any extra positive thoughts today you may want to send them across the world to try and ease the turmoil…plain and simple
07-16-14-My Morning Thoughts: “New Album Project” Just throwing this out there…My “Dedication Time & Friends” album I raised money through exceptional gracious very supportive fans purchasing albums prior to the recording so I had capital for studio time and manufacturing. My next album “Endless Road” I did a combination of pre-sales and sponsor. This next album I’m thinking about proposing a 50/50 split with anyone able to back the project entirely. Of course all capital fronted will be paid back first to the backer before the 50/50 split. This project will be my “seventh” album including Band albums and solos…maybe this will be the one that produces a hit, song of the year, Grammy award…ya that’s it, dream big!...if you’re interested in more info and looking for a possible tax write off…LOL…let me know…cause I got a good feeling about this next album and a lot of songs to choose from…someday may be just around the corner…have a great day all and keep living the dream!...plain and simple.
07-15-14-My Morning Thoughts: use turn signals please! During my past travels have I turned into a grumpy old man or what! How hard is it to use your turn signal? Everyday people changing lanes turning every which way and no turn signals! Is this too hard to do now? Is everyone so preoccupied with the cell phone that they can’t show a common courtesy and obey the law? I don’t get it at all…don’t they know how much of a hassle it is when you get into accident and try deal with insurance companies?...Wow, definitely wrong side of the bed thing going on here today…no worries I’ll be ok in an hour or two…LOL…plain and simple.
07-14-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Vacations” I only wish vacations were every year! Ours always have too many years in between. It’s always nice to get away and catch up with the daily actions of the ones you love…OBX was a blast and even with my back going out on the 5th day it still didn’t matter cause I made the best of it!...here’s wishing you all great vacations and spending time with your love ones!...why do vacations go so fast!...plain and simple.
07-03-14-My Morning Thoughts: “THANK YOU ALL” I wonder what the average amount of steps we take in a lifetime are?…I wonder how many miles we travel?…I wonder how many people we talk to for the first time?…I wonder how many songs we listen to since the first song?…I wonder how many times I’m going to say I wonder today…ya sometimes I just wonder about things…do you ever wonder?...but there is one thing I don’t have to wonder about at all and that’s the friends and family that are in my life!...THANK YOU…plain and simple.
07-01-14-My Morning Thoughts: MANY THANKS!!!!! Well thank you all so much for the Birthday wishes although it was not my intent to float my own boat yet rather describe the essence of real time moving more like warp time…were always told of how fast time goes though I’m not sure I believed it until the decades started moving past me as if they were years!...anyway, I’m just drinking coffee out loud this great beautiful Tuesday morning and counting the blessings…many, many thanks…plain and simple.
06-30-14-My Morning Thoughts: “midnight” At the stroke of midnight I will be adding another number to my age! It blows my mind that it’s B-day 54…but not cause of the number…more in relation to what has passed so quickly…I mean in the beginning I couldn’t wait to be older, do things that older kids did, hang out, drive cars, stand up to Mom and Dad…and then of course run like hell…LOL! Now, at this age, I would love to have any five minutes of it back to enjoy those fantastic firsts again and to rectify a few of those defiant moments! I don’t think I was a really bad kid although had I got caught with “all” the dumb things I did instead of getting away with so many some might say differently I’m sure. Ya looking back, all-in-all I would say I had one lucky, fortunate-to-be-loved-childhood that loves and appreciates his mother and father a great deal each and every day. Thanks Mom and Dad because without your guidance it’s highly unlikely that me, being 54 today might not have been on the agenda…and I am so proud that I can tell the world that my son Bob is engaged to his true love Christina!!!!!...all the best to you both!!!!!!...love you!!!!!...plain and simple.
06-27-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple Anybody know a good way to shed about 20 pounds and get into shape in less than 2 weeks’ time?...of course I would take losing 10 pounds and half-a-in-shape at this point!...enjoy the weekend all and your time together…plain and simple. PS: and I’m playing at the Eagles club tomorrow on E. 185th at 8PM for a benefit for my friend Duane Evans who recently passed…he was a good man…
