Veterans Day 🇺🇸 Thank You For Your Service!

Veterans Day was originally called Armistice Day, because November 11th. was the day they signed the Armistice that put an end to WWI. Back then it only honored those who died in war. But in 1954 the day became known as Veterans Day & now honors all who have served our country. So let’s all thank a veteran today! Without all their hard work & sacrifice, we wouldn’t have the privileges & freedoms that we enjoy today.

Happy Veterans Day!

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”

~George Washington

Thank You to ALL Who Served!

God Bless America!

Will You Vote Tomorrow?

One of the biggest voices we have is our vote! I’ve voted 🗳 in every possible election over the years. I do think it’s important to exercise that personal right. Every time voting day rolls around I always think about a special place from Jackson’s past. A place that really helped me grow up… Buddies Place! Locals will know of what I speak. Cecil Maxwell was a big influence on me as a boy. And gave me one of my first jobs working at the Pool 🎱 Room as a teenager. Anyone who went up there back in tha day, remembers the stairs! And they probably remember the sign as you got to the top. It had a political statement that still rings true. It said “Your vote gives you the right to bitch! IF you don’t vote, don’t be bitching”! I still feel the same way 😎

One of the last of the old school Pool Rooms 🎱 The political discussions were awesome and very educational for a young man like myself. I learned a lot about living in that old Pool Hall…

No matter your political leanings, it’s very important to get out and exercise your right to Vote! And remember, if you don’t … Keep your opinions to yourself! You didn’t earn the right to bitch about the outcome 😎

I don’t know about you, but I’m voting to bring Buddies Place Back! Who’s with me?!

Have a great evening! See ya’ at the polls tomorrow!

God Bless America! 🇺🇸

Blue Moonbeams 🌚 & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Blue Moon Tonight! First one since March 31st., 2018! Oh, and it’s on Halloween 🎃 which Makes it very special! The last Halloween with a Blue Moon was all the way back in 1944! We were fighting WW II! 💥 Oh, and it’s SATURDAY! When you combine these things with the fact that it’s also a Saturday, now we’re talking very rare! In fact, there won’t be another like it for 250 years!

Halloween night and the moon 🌝 is Full! It’s also a Blue Moon 🌚

Oh, and I almost forgot… One more factor to consider… Tonight is the night we roll back the clocks ⏰ an hour! Yep, it’s “Fall Back for Daylight Savings” tonight!

Set your clocks back tonight…

So if you add that factor to the Blue Moon, on Halloween 🎃 on a Saturday night – You blow the roof off the timeline of WHEN this will happen again! I’ve been searching and I don’t believe this exact sequence of events has EVER happened before?! Daylight Savings was started in 1918… That led to the question, WHEN will this all line up like this and happen again? I couldn’t completely track it down or do the exact math… But, if and when it does, it will be well over 1,000 years from now! 😳

Pretty cool huh 😎

Blue Moonbeams & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Have a FUN evening! 🎃⏰💥🌚😱👀

Oh, Go Vote Tuesday! Use it, or loose it!

Happy Halloween 👻 🎃

God Bless America 🇺🇸

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Happy Labor Day! 🇺🇸

Happy Labor Day to ALL! This was my zen last night. A late evening float with some nice music and what seemed like the entire lake to ourselves…

Thanks Pete! We all need a long weekend! 

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.”

Sunday Reflections…

Sunday Morning Breakfast 🥞 🍳 🥚 It’s an institution at our house 😊 I am the short order cook taking orders… And that’s fine with me ❤️

It’s important to start the day with a smile 😊

Fried eggs, pancakes 🥞, omelettes, scrambled eggs, Maple syrup, blueberry syrup with whipped cream, you name it, I’ll fix it 😎

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
   ~ A.A. Milne


Have a Blessed Day 🙏🏻

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I don’t know about you, but I Love to see our Flag blowing In the wind! Such a beautiful symbol of our great country! 
Couple that with the sound of the wind and a beautiful Sunset in the background and you have something special… Something inspirational and Dare I say… Zen Like 🇺🇸



Have a Wonderful Monday!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen…

I LOVE Tennessee! I especially love the Natural Springs, Creeks, Waterfalls and Rivers ❤️ In some areas of the state a beautiful stream, strewn with little waterfalls flows around and through every holler. I stopped by just such a stream the other day and walked down to the bank and took this short video to share this morning. It is such a relaxing sound and the water is as warm as a bath right now. So, Zen… 



Enjoy a wonderful ‘Zen Filled’ Monday!

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 🥂
