A New Day!

Its a NEW DAY! A new time. A new beginning!

I can feel it in the air, the level of optimism, the excitement... the relief.

In celebration of our NEW DAY. Let's all promise to help those less fortunate, those who need our help. Anything you can do to help. Anything you can give.

If someone does something nice for you, even a smile or a polite gesture... PAY IT FORWARD!

Its up to each one of us to make this world a better place and each one of us has the power to do so!

Its a NEW DAY! A new time. A new beginning! It begins with YOU and I!

The hounds are napping by the fire. Shopping is done. Gifts are wrapped. Decorations are in place. All feels good.

This year, Robin and I are not buying gifts for each other... instead we are giving to the JAMA food bank back home in our native Jonesborough, TN. We are both very fortunate, we have what we need and we want for very little.

So many charities are struggling this year and its bound to get worse in 2009. Please keep them in mind when you work on your budget for next year. Give what you can, every amount counts.

Im hoping that you have a wonderful Holiday Season and a fantastic New Year!

Long Time

Well, its been a while. Facebook seems to be taking most of my BLOG time. If you've not joined them, you need to. Its a great networking tool and a wonderful way to re-connect with old friends.

Im spending a great deal of time writing.

The fur-kids are napping. My wife and I are enjoying our time together and planning a Pocono vacation for the Fall.

I read in the Johnson City Press obits today that David Joe Miller of Jonesborough had died. Really strange, reading my name in the local, hometown obits. Im sure I'll be getting some Email and phone calls.

Im tired of all of the election coverage and commercials. Counting the days till November and HOPING that true "change" is on the horizon.

Back to hound wollering....

Wow, what a speech given by Mrs. Obama. Ive only heard bits of pieces, from the news but what I have heard is awesome. It does, however, amaze me that the news media is spending so much time and effort in discussing her dress. Come on now!

The next few months are going to be interesting. The political commercials are gruesome. We are wearing out the MUTE button on the remote.

Life is GOOD! Fur-kids are both doing well and Robin and I are happy and healthy. Work could be easier, summer could have been a bit cooler, time could slow down a bit and we could win the lottery but, other than that.... "There ain't been no news."

"Nothing in life gives a man so much courage as the attainment or the renewal of the conviction that other people regard him with favor; because it means that everyone joins to give him help and protection, which is an infinitely stronger bulwark against the ills of life than anything he can possibly do himself."

May you know the joy of a napping hound,

Time is precious.

Enjoy each day to the fullest.

Things are getting back to normal now, after several weeks of chaos... travel, visitors and work. I love "routine." Its familiar, like a pair of old, comfortable shoes that you hope last a lifetime.

The fur-kids are happy and that means that we are happy.

Little Switzerland, NC. was awesome. The workshop was well received and the climate was a welcome change from the heat and humidity of Philly. Im going to investigate that writing retreat for next year.

Back to the keyboard.
