Ice, pork roast and life’s speed bump on the path least traveled…

Hello Diary,

Long time no see… 🙂 a gloomy day outdoors with fog and freezing rain….


Everything has a thin coating of ice, like the auto…


Too nasty to be outdoors and with daily chores done, thought I would take a few minutes to share some thoughts… have been bringing pages of the past to close after my wife’s passing in 2015 and preparing for a new year and the unfortunate leadership, or lack of, with Trump…must have been some desperate people to have elected him President, it sure wasn’t me!… 🙂

That being said, little Bree (picture taken during better days)…

Bree and popcorn chicken

Had some issues believe to be related to her precious heart… she has had a heart murmur for some time now and suddenly the other day she had symptoms near that of seizures.. Hasn’t had any since, have her on a heart medicine for awhile and wait to see what happens…one of life’s “speed bumps” we encounter from time to time…

Bree sort of took over things after the passing of Miss Daisy in 2014…


Keeping an eye on the home and backyard, taking care of business, etc… 🙂 I remember when Kathy (my late wife) were battling cancer, Bree would stay near her and when Kathy needed something, she would call my name and little Bree would start barking and looking for me!… so now the pendulum has swung the other way and it is little Bree that is needing the help…not sure what the future will bring but Bree and I will face it together!!..

It may be cold and gloomy outdoors but indoors it is bright and warm.. Prepared Sunday’s dinner in a crockpot, pork roast and veggies..


Will turn it on early in the morning and should be done around noon.. Well, Diary, that is about it for awhile..rather quiet times at the moment though busy planning for the future and a number of hobbies and projects.. Not to mention always checking out those rainbows on the horizon as we venture down the path least traveled… 🙂

In leaving will share some thoughts;

“Life gives us brief moments, but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime, so live that your memories will be part of your happiness.”

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched– they must be felt with the heart.” Helen Keller

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood, I’d type a little faster. “ Isaac Asimov

And will return again one day, as Bree and I venture down the path least traveled while living and cherishing the delicate life we have, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…..

Speaking of rainbows, here is one thought by Kermit which I agree with;

And another by Israel Kamakaiwo’ole;
