Friday Inspiration – Of All The Books

By |May 20th, 2016|

Who doesn’t look at their passport from time to time and think, “Now that was a good trip!”

I love looking through mine as it reminds me of days past, having fun and making memories. I’m really glad the State Department sends the old passports back so that I can continue to do this with all […]

Friday Inspiration – Make Memories

By |May 7th, 2016|

How many times do you buy something and think it will make you happier?  Ok, probably a lot of time.  But when was the last time you made a happy memory and regretted it?  Probably never.

Take some time this weekend and make memories with your family.  It’s much better than stuff and it lasts a […]

Costa Rica or Disney World? Guess which is cheaper.

By |May 2nd, 2016|

As Cindy and I drove back from a very entertaining 5-day vacation at Disney World (3 actual days at the park over Thanksgiving weekend – this certifies us as crazy), we marveled at the expense of visiting one of our favorite family getaways.  Hotel here, entrance ticket there, Mickey ice cream way over there (who […]

Quote for Tuesday

By |April 20th, 2016|

In general, I like to be random.  Randomness makes life interesting and less mundane.  Some like routine, but it’s boring and predictable.  Doing one random thing a day will make you laugh, get a weird look for someone, and remind you that you’re in fact, ALIVE!

Saturday Thought

By |April 10th, 2016|

If I had a nickel for every time I got lost, I would have about 25 cents.  Why so little money?  Mainly because I am a male and am never lost.  I am either distracted, taking a scenic route, or double checking if my wife is paying attention.
When Cindy thinks we are lost, we usually find […]

Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments – Day Twelve – Israel

By |December 25th, 2015|

Day Twelve… Israel.
I haven’t been to the Holy Land nor has the girls.  This is an ornament that Cindy got while she studied in Jerusalem many moons ago.  It’s made from an olive tree from the area and has been on all of our trees since we have been married.
As we conclude with the Twelve Days […]

Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments – Day Eleven – Italy

By |December 24th, 2015|

Hello Day Eleven… e Buon Giorno a Tutti!  It’s Italy!
Italy is one of my favorite places on Earth.  I’ve lived there for several years and have such great memories.  I’ve laughed with Italians, eaten with Italians, been cussed out by Italians, and worked side-by-side with Italians.  Some of the best people you could ever met.
We […]

Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments – Day Ten – England

By |December 23rd, 2015|

Twas the Tenth Day of Christmas, and let it be known, that England was chosen.
This ornament was one of our original travel pieces.  When we lived in Europe, we traveled to London for a week and fell in love with the city.  Of particular fondness was Westminster Abbey.
Westminster Abbey is a jewel of stain glass […]

Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments – Day Nine – Costa Rica

By |December 22nd, 2015|

On the ninth day of Christmas, I hot tailed it to Costa Rica.
We had a blast on the Atlantic Coast.  Swimming.  Scuba diving.  Eating bananas.  Listening to poison dart frogs chirp.
That’s the beach life.
This ornament is from Puerto Viejo.  It is a artistic compilation of Nature.  And Costa Rica is every bit of Nature rolled […]
