Looking Forward

Featured, Personal

I turned 55 this past October. Didn’t think that would be much of a big deal but this birthday affected me more than hitting 40 or 50. Those are supposedly the ones that cause more heartache but the big 55 was worse. Not sure why but it made me really think about mortality and exactly […]

“So Much Wasted Time”

Featured, Memories, Personal

If you’ve paid attention to media reports of David Cassidy’s passing you have probably heard the story of his last words.

I’m reminded lately of time passing. It seems that birthdays come much quicker than they used to. Now we count friendships in decades rather than years.

If my math is correct I haven’t played an instrument since the early to mid 90’s, so more than 20 years. That changes this week. I have ordered a guitar, bass, drum machine, keyboard midi […]

Memories, Personal, Travel

Most of you who are friends on Facebook have seen some of the images we took while we were in NY this past week. These are some of the pictures I took. I’ll post more once Suzanne downloads them from her phone & camera.

How Time Flies


We’ve all heard the old adage “Time flies when you’re having fun” or “Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted” (John Lennon). Funny, but it seems annual events come around quicker these days. My family and I enjoy the Germantown Charity Horse Show each June. It seems we have just finished emptying the cooler and […]
