By the way, I’m talking about Mr. –
“Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York’s Central Labor Union early in 1882, and they thought the holiday was a good idea, too.”

Throwback Thursday

Jo and I always celebrate our wedding anniversary by taking a few days off. Looking back and looking forward is very important for a good relationship! I am sitting in a marina having lunch with Jo as I type this 😊 we are swapping old pictures and I wanted to make this one my #throwbackthursday picture.

I love this picture! ❤️ My dad is my best man, and 3 of my best friends are with me as groomsmen (ps: we are all still great friends! Family ❤️). My wife is so beautiful 🤩 as are all her brides maids.

Throwback Thursday is always a special day.

Have a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

I’ve been up since early… Drinking coffee and thinking 🤔 Reflecting. Yesterday was a fun, long, laidback day. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in grand fashion… At the river 😊 Floating, fishing, photography – Fun. The only thing I can complain about is we ran out of hours in the day, and the mosquitoes were out in force last night🦟

Yesterday was a busy, wonderful day! A beautiful sunrise, fun on the river, great food, a beautiful sunset on the water, live music at the marina & a gorgeous Full moon 🌕

We want to thank everyone who called, messaged and texted to wish us a Happy Anniversary! ❤️ It was a fun, laid back, perfect day.

“Mosquito is out,
it’s the end of the day;
she’s humming and hunting
her evening away.
Who knows why such hunger
arrives on such wings
at sundown? I guess
it’s the nature of things.”

~ N. M. Boedecker

It’s been 28 years and it has literally flown by… She is still as pretty today as she is in this picture.

Happy Anniversary to us! Here’s to another 28 years together 🥂

Sunday Reflections…

Last night was interesting to say the least.. We have a new puppy in the house 🐶 You forget just how involved it is. They have such incredible energy! Having to take them out to walk, clean up after their accidents, watch where you step and what you leave down… Etc. Then, at bedtime, the whining and barking is non stop for a while. Then there’s the late night walks, more water, more play, more whining… Wow! Energy without bounds.

Bell just loves her rabbit 🐇 and her bone 🦴 and her ball 🏀 and her new home I think 🏡 😊

Then, just when you think it might have been a mistake, that it’s gonna be so much work and effort… she crawls up on you and goes to sleep in your lap… Thats when you realize that Love is a four legged word 🐶❤️ You’ve got a new family member, a new baby… and the whining stops when you let her sleep beside you in the bed 🛌

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

~ Josh Billings

Have a great Sunday 🙏🏻

Time immemorial 🙏🏻

April 1st. is April fools day to most… In fact, I had planned a funny post this morning myself… But my mind and emotions steered me in a different direction completely, and I had to start over…


Today was also my Uncle Doug’s birthday. He recently passed away from Covid 19 and has been heavy on my mind. I always took him out for his birthday to a place of his choosing. Sometimes it was as simple as his favorite place for Chinese food here in town, or a place in Memphis for BBQ or maybe he would say “Let’s get some steaks 🥩 and fix dinner for everyone. But since I can remember, I spent this day with him.

I’ve put this picture of us on here before, it’s one of my favorites. He drew a mustache on my lip at my request 😊 and I imagine we both got in trouble… From my earliest memories I always had my Uncle Doug in my life. He will always live in my heart and memories, but how I would love to be able to take him out today for his Birthday.

My blog title today was meant to express how I feel about the love I have for my Uncle.
Time immemorial (Latin: Ab immemorabili) is a phrase meaning time extending beyond the reach of memory, record, or tradition, indefinitely ancient, “ancient beyond memory or record”. In law, it means that a property or benefit has been enjoyed for so long that its owner does not have to prove how they came to own it.

We were close from the day I was born, before my memory’s started! “beyond memory or record”…

He was a true blessing in my life. Happy Birthday in Heaven Uncle Doug! 🙏🏻 You are truly missed ❤️

“God will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and death shall be no more,
neither shall there be mourning, nor crying,
nor pain anymore,
for the former things have passed away.”

 – Revelation 21:4

PS: If you have someone in your life that has been there for you “beyond memory or record”, be it family or a life long best friend, give them a hug today and tell them you Love them. Things happen in the blink of an eye and then all that’s left, is your memories… 🙏🏻

27 Years In The Blink Of An Eye…

Happy Anniversary! ❤️🍾💥 I am a blessed man! I’m fortunate enough to have a job that I love, a great family & Im married to a virtuous woman 👩🏻  Again – blessed! 27 years of marriage today… In the blink of an eye! It doesn’t seem possible that this much time has passed… It literally seems like yesterday that we walked up that isle… 

We had a great group of groomsmen and bridesmaids to help us that day!

We have taken a few days off to celebrate and wind down. Nothing fancy, just some time together. 

Jo’s grandfather walked her down the isle that day. I found this picture of him and it did my heart good. He was a very special person in Jo’s life. And our life together. ❤️

Thanks for all the calls and texts wishing us a happy day! And here’s to another 27 years together! 

Cheers 🥂
