I’m Dreading The Day …

It’s coming … that ad.

I actually am getting nervous. Anxious. I’m dreading it. It’s coming. Any day now. And then … it won’t stop.

2020 – Year of the Mask

Who knew that in 2020 we’d be seeing Old Navy spotlight masks for sale …



















I think the thing that is really sad for me to see when I’m out and about is seeing little girls wearing masks – kids, for that matter. I don’t know … just seems like such a sad thing to see. Still hard to accept that this is what it has come to.

Good Guy Postman

So I’m driving home from El Paso and I guess Tina and the kids weren’t home. I see a package sitting on our front doorstep – it had been there for an hour.

We hadn’t ever had any issues with stolen packages, but with the season and the madness of all of the online ordering … you never know. Seeing that package sit on the doorstep for an hour was concerning me. Then this guy shows up! Nice Move (he put his own delivery in one of our flower pots – did the same with the waiting package), Bro – have a great Christmas!
