I'm really trying to get back to using a Bullet Journal. Really I am. But I've been a little distracted lately. My older two sons have been in town from out of state and the country for a visit. This is the first time these three have been together in almost 4 years (L to … Continue reading Life is Fun

We often only write/tell about people after they are gone. A few months ago I wrote about my Uncle Harvey after he passed away. I want to write about my Uncle Robert. He is the oldest of my mother's siblings and Uncle Harvey's big brother. Today is his 88th birthday. I don't know if Uncle … Continue reading Why Wait?
The Tale of Three Knives
I collected quite a few pocket knives over the years. My Grampa Mayfield also was a knife hoarder. His were all pretty much worn out.

It is certainly interesting to get back into life after 30+ years on one path. It makes you wonder if life is actually unfair or not. I sold the family home earlier this year.

I've been skiing several times this winter and have had a wonderful time. I hadn't been on skis at all for at least 30 years and have been amazed that I … Continue reading What Have I Been Doing Lately?
What I’ve been up to…
New Motto The end of 2020 was certainly an emotional time for me. Ending a 32 year marriage and trying to pick up the pieces and move on to a new life was both difficult yet liberating. Times of happiness were mixed with times of sadness, but, life is or at least ought to be … Continue reading What I’ve been up to…
A New Start
A tool of my mental salvation Life has a way of taking unexpected twists and turns. I find myself, for the first time in 32 years, as a single man. This certainly wasn’t my plan, but it is the hand I’ve been dealt, so I’ll play it. Rona ready I’ve been throwing myself into teaching, … Continue reading A New Start
June Set Up – Plan With Me
That’s It I don’t understand all the DIY and decorated planner types that lay out the months, weeks, days and even the entire year and all the trackers before they even use their bullet journal. I’m set for June.
