In biblical times, the nation of Israel would memorialize important events. They would get big rocks and stack them up, and when their children saw it, they were told the story of what it memorialized. They would pass it down to the next generation and the ones after that. Today is Memorial Day, when we remember our veterans of war and the ones who didn’t make it back home. I want to thank these men and women for their great sacrifice for our country. Let’s not remember that it is a day off to have fun and cook out, but remember what it is supposed to be remembered for. Thank you vets.

This blogging isn’t as easy as I thought. It is hard to come up with something everyday. One thing I am looking forward to in the up-coming months is coaching Upward soccer. I don’t claim to know about soccer other than the basics, but I enjoy teaching it to them. Some of the kids are so sweet and funny as they are learning and it’s not about winning. Although everyone wants to. I also love the tremendous support from the parents as well. I like to coach basketball as well, although I didn’t last year because of lack of transportation.
Sometimes I want to give up blogging since there are so few viewers, but i also like putting my voice out there as well. Wish I had more participation when i ask for suggestions or answers to a question. I am not sure whether I will continue or not. We will see, especially depending on any responses I get from this post. You may see me, you may not. It all depends on you, the public.
Today, I’d like to review a book called ‘Traces Of Guilt’ by Dee Henderson.
I love Dee Henderson’s books. She had me hooked with the O’Malley series, and I have read her books ever since. She is a great writer. Traces Of Guilt is a great book. It is about Evie Blackwell, who is investigating some cold cases. She is very quirky, especially with the way the book begins with the big buck. Along with friends from the other books in the series the Falcones, Evie goes on an adventure of trying to figure out the cold cases. She finds love along the way. It is a best seller, of course. This is a must-read book to pick up and read. I loved it. This book was given to me for a review by Baker publishing company.
Sorry about missing yesterday, but it was a busy day. I went to the eye doctor today and got a good report. So the old fart’s not dead! He is still alive and kicking. I’m still looking for suggestions on how to get off my merry go round. Help me out, guys. You ever get to the point where when you get old and have stuff wrong with you that you never feel good?
Well let’s see what kind of amusing story I can come up with today. So gather ’round, cause the old fart’s getting ready to tell a story. One time, I was in a footrace, and I’m in the lead. I look back to see if anyone is close. I turn back around and I do a 360 flip in mid air, and land flat on my back wondering ‘what just happened?!’. I was bleeding with split lips, and I look up to see a clothesline. Dork! Well, that’s all till tomorrow, knuckle heads.
Have you ever felt like you’re on a merry go round? Wake up, eat, have a quiet time, then read, then eat again, then read, then eat again, then read, then sleep? Sometimes I add some gaming. Then do it all over again in a never ending cycle of same old same old. I am retired and in bad health. I would like to start a hobby or just something to get me off this go round, but I find myself saying ‘I would like to do this or that’ and never do. I would like to start a hobby, and I would like to write a book or at least see if I could. Any body else like this? I am open for suggestions, because this old go round is getting old. I hope to start blogging every day.
Let me tell ya a funny story. Me and my boys were at a local ballgame, and the mascot Hoot the Owl started making a noise while me and my boys were in deep conversation. One of my sons turned around, and Hoot and my boy’s face were eye to eye through the fence, and it scared him half to death! You had to have been there. It was hilarious! Well, i’m waiting for your suggestions on how to get off this merry go round. It will be so cool to hear from you.
