Throwback Thursday.   

As you can tell from the coffee table I loved coke and chocolate pudding. The two empty cans of pudding obviously have put me into a pudding coma.  I wonder if I finished the third that's sitting there after my coma lifted?  (I was probably around three or four?)

A good man...who is sick...

A good man has cancer.  A good man I've admired for so long.  A man I never imagined would be sick because he comes across so strong.  He and his family are constantly on my mind.  The fear for what's ahead for him and the survivor's guilt that follows.

I'm so behind on my postings.  It's not that I don't have things to write about or photos from events.  I do.  In fact I'll be posting things going on in my life soon.  Most are at least a month old.  But I want to add.

One reason I've not posted is the world seems to be on fire.  It's really gotten to me.  I could write a hundred blog posts with thousands of thoughts, however, most might, well, not be wise to put into words.  But ya want to talk about them, I'll sure sound off.

Two things I've not posted:

Met Lamar Alexander at the Jim Miller Memorial BBQ.

Governor Haslam visited Monroe County to award two grants.  VERY
exciting!  At least if you are into politics it was.  Lots of security, a Governor
in Madisonville.  Best part, money for our county.  Loved it!


Can you believe it?  I actually found a coke with my name on it!!!
