Silence is Off-Ochre…

There are occasions every so often, when a person has nothing compelling to say.

There are also times when people don’t know when to shut up.

I like to think I’ve developed a keen sense of diplomacy and sharp observational skills that enable me to ascertain the potential for these disastrous and uncomfortable situations, and hopefully, the wherewithal to avoid them.

Sometimes, that isn’t the case.

Today, however, I think I might be “in the zone”, so to speak.

So, in light of the above statements, I’m going to leave you with this parting bit of wisdom:

If you’re the only one talking in a room full of awkward silence, you might want to take a hint.


Happy Anniversary, Babe.

So no post last night, several the day before.

Today is a simple, straightforward message.

Happy Anniversary to my beautiful wife Samantha.

I love you more than anything, and am so fortunate to share my life with you.

I thought for sure that after the chlorophyll wore off, and you’d figured out the locking mechanism to the shed in the back yard, that you would have run away. Screaming.

But you stayed. Admittedly, the electric fence helped. We worked it out. We built a life. Had amazing children, and each day gets better and better.

Ours is a relationship built on honesty. On friendship, and on trust.

So in light of that, I think its time I take the ankle restraint off. One of them, anyways.

Sorry. That was for my personal diary. I digress.

I love you Babe. You have given me more than just love and purpose. You have given me a home for my heart. Also, you laugh at my jokes, which I really appreciate.

Thank you, Samantha, for being with me, and for being a part of me.

I couldn’t bear to be apart from you.

But its our kids, Sam. Somethings got to be done about our kids!!!!
