07-02-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Without You” Something really important I have to say today but I woke up in a daze or something. There’s something going on today…oh ya…Hey!!! I’ve been married 25 years today! Man you talk about a man being lucky…I thought she would have traded me in like…15 or 20 years ago for sure! I am blessed to have a best friend…and how do they say that…oh ya, with benefits. As I get older and the love is much greater than any benefit could ever be…and I say to myself…self…I’m a lucky man!...now this topic I could write on forever because I am a straight out fanatical head over heels love struck romantic! There has been so many songs written on this subject and I must say, I have contributed to the love songs mainly because I have the most wonderful love in the world to write about…so just to end on one of my songs…”even death, just don’t scare me, what scares me is living my life…without you”. Happy 25th anniversary Carrie and you have been…and always will be…the love of my life…plain and simply…in love.
07-01-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Birthday” So another year has gone by and I’m still here this fine Cleveland Ohio morning. There are a million things in life that pop in and out of our brains like things we’ve done or achievements or disappointments or maybe even things we wanted to do or will do some day…but what is our legacy? Should the question even be asked…will I be remembered when I’m gone? Would it really matter if I’m not? Were the little things I’ve done in my life enough to make a difference? I don’t know…it’s pretty deep when ya think about it….one side of my family tree has it all written down and traces back to like 1600 and when you read the names and check em out that’s all you know…names! I don’t know how they spoke how they lived what they believed or even if they were good people or bad people!...anyway, as time rolls on…and yes it will, everything boils down to one focal point in my opinion…did we do the best we can within the time allowed us?...plain and simple.
06-28-13-My Morning Thoughts: The simple things in life? The simple things in life may not always be so simple…like working hard every day to try and pay ‘most’ of the bills, smiling at someone you know has it in for you, holding the door ‘again’ without an acknowledgement…well anyway its Friday and that means unwind and enjoy…have a great weekend and be safe people, while unwinding…plain and simple.
06-27-13-My Morning Thoughts: I can tell you one thing for sure this fine morning…it’s Thursday…Thursday’s aren’t so bad though cause the work-week “end” is in sight. I have worked long enough to know that the days have become like Bill Murray’s movie Groundhog Day! Not exactly like it but you know what I mean. Sometime you just get stuck in a rut and it seems to deep to climb out!...but I do and we do and we move on to Friday!…can’t wait, hope everyone enjoys this great day…plain and simple.
06-26-13-My Morning Thoughts: “if not for music” If I didn’t get turned on to great music from my older sister where would I be now? Maybe a Tiny Tim fan perhaps?...oh the pain just thinking about my life without all those fantastic years of unbelievable classic rock and roll!...can’t hear that well anymore but I still loved it!...plain and simple.
06-25-13-My Morning Thoughts: “The Greatest” Obviously the greatest Rock-n-Roll song of all time is Stairway to Heaven… but everyone knows that, right? I mean there can’t be any argument’s made that could possibly question the relevance of this rock masterpiece, correct? Who perhaps could not know the words and musical breaks in this song, an infant maybe?...now some might declare that there are other songs but I would need hard evidence for an opinion change of the greatest rock song of all time…get your headphones on…plain and simple.
06-24-13-My Morning Thoughts: Did you ever have those mornings that you know there’s so much that has to be done that you don’t even want to start? Well I ask this question…what did you do 9 times out of 10 on those days? Buckle down and get it done…or…call in sick and put your head under the covers?...I know what I want to do today…but I won’t…have a great day everyone…plain and simple
06-21-13-My Morning Thoughts: FRIDAY! All you educated friends out there…how come Monday to Friday go so slowly and Friday to Sunday goes so fast? I really think we should be working 4 days a week at the most! Ok that’s it…I’m officially running for the president of the work week scheduling czar job!!!...what do ya think?...4 day work weeks! 4 day work weeks!...LOL…have a great safe weekend all and enjoy the time you have off…plain and simple.
06-20-13-My Morning Thoughts: If there was ever a time in this mixed up world to share the love it’s now…just trying to comprehend all this news lately has given me one big headache! You said this, I didn’t say that, I meant this…bla bla bla…our government elected officials sound a lot like my grade schools days in the principal’s office…the main difference is I had detention and these guys get to go on extended breaks and vacation’s to chill for awhile…what a world…keep a smile on your face friends cause it’s still ‘your’ smile…plain and simple.
06-19-13-My Morning Thoughts: “1 or 2 days” I want to go back 35 years, just for a day or two; there are some things I’d like to change a little…there were a few punches I wish I hadn’t thrown, a couple of swear words at particularly sensitive times, an overly amount of indulgences I happen to partake in, a few things that may have come up missing…on second thought, one or two days back may not be enough…plain and simple.
