Not Much to Say, Not Much Time

Work has been very busy in a good way. The job I do requires quite a bit of thinking and rationalizing. I am happy that my idle mind is given little room to roam. Perhaps senility will be pushed back a few more years.

I am sad beyond words that the Packers blew their chance at another Super Bowl. Needless to say, and no offense to anyone, football season is now officially over for me. I have high hopes that the Pack will be back next season.

I have been learning about giving grace rather than receiving it lately. It hurts. It is much harder than I care to admit. Loving God and loving others is a tall order at times.

To my blogger pals, I continually enjoy keeping up with everyone through the blogosphere. I hope for a day when we can fellowship face to face.

Lordy, Lordy and Greenbeans

Two of my pals made history this year.

George has joined the "I'm-40-but-I-can-still-kick-your-butt club," and, at long last, Alan has crafted a blog.

Combined, these two gents have made me laugh more than any human beings in the history of, well...human beings. All I can say is, you had to be there!

"Toilet Paper!"

"Spyhoin..."

"Sound the adjutant's call!"

"Silver dollar!"

"You eat dirt Moe!"

"George Bradley has hemorrhoids."

"Dern! Who farted!"

"Look! Catoe has his towel in his pants!"

Again, you had to be there. I WAS there, and I will always treasure George and Alan in my own, nutty sort of way. Thanks, Dooks.

My 2008 Is Up and Running


Precious little time for blogging these days. I enjoyed catching up on my blog reading last night. Everyone appears to have had a joyous holiday.

I had a thought today. I am blessed. Truly. Two of my pals spent Christmas away from family. I had family coming out of my ears! I was talking with a co-worker who is also a believer, but tends to follow the "name it/claim it" ilk. He spoke of having more "God's way." I suppose I could be selfish and find things to covet. Nah! Been there, done that.

I am at a good place right now. I am richly blessed in every way. I want to give more love in 2008.

I suppose losing a few pounds wouldn't hurt, too.
