Been Awhile

Wow this year has flown by!  Last time I posted was in February and here we are in October.  So much has been happening around here and I never seem to have any time.  Not complaining...but trying to keep up  with a two year old, who never seems to get tired sure keeps me going.  Course he doesn't think Papa should ever be tired out anyway.
I have not been able to fish as much as I would like because of putting in lots of hours at work.  I am very fortunate having this job and enjoy working around some pretty interesting aircraft. Like most companies one person may do the work of 6 or 7 people so that means lots of work and hours.
We now have our daughter back with us and so we are having some fun seeing more of Florida.  We still have not got used to all the green....couple that with all the water opportunities and we should not have any problems finding something to do.  Well I hope to update this more often and figure out what is worth posting and what is not.  Thanks for stopping by.....

Just another experience

I haven't written anything in so long that I feel like I have neglected my blog. I have been going through quite a bit of testing here lately and still have more to go. I think the doctors are not wanting to take any chances so they are pulling out all stops. We have been kind of in limbo waiting for any answer to these questions....just holding our breaths for (2) months. This has given me another insight to my mortality which has not happened since my heart attack three years ago. I believe we take our time here in this world for granted and don't realize how infinitesimal our time really is until these things happen to us. We walk our paths through life thinking that only happens to someone else but not me. I am not complaining at all because I have had a great life, great family, lots of fun and love and very few regrets. I do think one thing I have to regret is the time that I have taken for and trying to make ends meet has taken my joy away and made me a slave to my job. In the coming months I do hope to remedy this by setting aside time to fish, to relax and slow down. I have thought about writing a not think I would do very well but would like to tell a story. Strickly fiction with some historical reference so the characters are not real but the story would take place in a time based on the past. I have read so many books that take you out of reality and transplant you into a different period, to the point where you can smell the old coal locomotives blowing their black clouds of smoke in the air. The books that I have enjoyed the most have been able to tell the story so well that from cover to cover I have taken a trip with the author. Wow...I think that is neat. So I guess I will give it some thought, bought a few books on writing and I want to give it a try. Nothing to be published just an experience, maybe a few short stories. We will see but whatever it is that I decide to do I want to do it for me. I know how very selfish that sounds but after all these years of service that I have given for the military and Boeing I think I have earned this. Hope this finds everyone doing well and loving life itself.
