As I Sit Here Contemplating...

...About the 1st Half Of the Year, I'm wondering what the 2nd Half will bring now that we're into July. I'm glad the First Half of the year is finished! I have to say it was quite a ride. I've given it the title of "Mr. Toads Wild Ride!" I think most remember that Disney story.


I'm praying and hoping the second half of 2020 gets much better since I don't really want to name 2020 "The Year that Wasn't". SOOO...whatever the 2nd Half of 2020 brings we've proven we are an adaptable bunch. We've learned to hit some pitches we never expected and maybe our attention has been made to focus on life in general and not take the things we took for granted...for granted. 

Let's just adopt the mantra "Before I'm Anything...I'm an American First" God Bless America and have mercy on us.

Good Morning Barbara Todaro 

I know things will get better it's very disheartening to witness these violent left-wing radicals pillage our cities

It was a nice quiet day. We pulled weeds in the morning, relaxed in the afternoon, and BBQ'd in the evening. Thank you!

Hi Doug:

Hope you enjoyed the holiday - it was a bit different, as the last few months have been. I don't think things are going to change significantly in the near future but time will tell.

Unless you gave up, 2020 will be the year that was. We are making many great memories this year. The pandemic, the death of 4 family & friends, the financial challenges of limited work and more have affected us greatly; but we're still having a good year in our home. We are the coffee that changes the boiling water, we're not the carrot that is softened or the egg that is hardened by it.

You should do in Internet search for the term "May you live in interesting times" which is ofter used as a toast with a double meaning.

We are certainly living in "interesting times"!

Hi Charles Stallions 

I've heard that and w/o getting political I'm not so sure as we are moving into a full-fledged cultural war by domestic enemies and globalists, BUT that's as far as I'm taking it.
