Thoughts of uncertainty

I was driving to the office the other day when out of the corner of my eye I saw a squirrel come out of the grass and dart right in front of my car. There was no time to brake and sad to say, the only nuts that that squirrel is eating is in squirrel heaven if there is such a place.

Happy Fourth and God bless

Our nation was built upon a belief in and a desire to worship God. Brave men and women took a stand for freedom, that, too, many seem like an insurmountable undertaking – to take on an entire nation in a battle for freedom.

Fathers Day

Happy Father's Day! Those words are echoing through the community all morning, accompanied with breakfast in bed (Cheerio's with chocolate milk, burnt toast and hand drawn pictures of adolescent abstract art, rendered by a future Picasso) or, perhaps, with a slender box containing the world's ugliest tie.
