Good Grief!

Grief-2255x2828So sorry I haven’t been around for a while. What is the old expression? The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. I don’t want to talk about my flesh, but I know my heart hasn’t been into this for a while. All the time I think of things I might want to discuss in this blog, but actually sitting at the keyboard and making the effort has been too difficult. But I promise to do better for my fan or fans. I know why it has been difficult, and that brings us to the topic of this article.

All Men Are NOT Created Equal!

not-equal1All men are not created equal, and neither are women. You only need to spend the day at the beach to verify that fact. Our forefathers used the expression “All men are created equal”. This was an unfortunate choice of words because there are those in our society who take those words way to literally. The forefathers went on to say that our creator has endowed us with certain unalienable rights, among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But, that does not really mean we are all created equal. Because we are not. We are created with an equal chance to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. We are created with the same opportunity to fail or excel. But then it is up to us.

Government, go away!

No-Big-GovernmentI don’t know about you, but I for one am getting quite tired of government intervention in my life. I am tired of government telling me how to drive my car, how to prepare my food, how to raise my kids, and telling me what I can, or cannot do in the privacy of my own home. My feeling are this, if I want to do something, and that something does not endanger my fellow human beings, then I should be able to do what I want. I don’t need government telling me how to do it. Life in the 1950’s was much less legislated, and times were simple.

My Parent’s House

momanddadRecently I had occasion to visit my parent’s home. On the surface that seems somewhat inane and a not point of conversation. You know, “Hey, I went to my folks house”, “Yeah, so what”. But, my folks aren’t here any more. In fact, Dad has been gone for 21 years, and Mom has been gone for nine. So I didn’t go to the house to visit them. I stopped by because it is being renovated, most likely for sale or for rent. At first, the idea of the house leaving the family was bothersome. After all, that was my Parent’s house, and I live there too. But then, after some reflection, it dawned on me that it is just the house where my parents lived. It was their home, but now it is just a house.

Goodbye GG!

rip-ruben-cross-faithYesterday in the early afternoon someone near and dear passed away. My Mother in Law, Dori, crossed over quietly and without complaint. It was fitting that she die that way because that was how she lived her life, quietly and without complaint. She succumbed to cancer. I believe the official type was throat cancer. She was diagnosed in late January and now she is gone.
