Last year on Dec 10th, 2011
I posted this picture on my blog.
Almost one year to the day
I took this picture of the same bridge.
Here's what concerns me.
In the time between the first photo and the 2nd photo
I have traveled 23,996 by air.
I have traveled more than a 1000 miles by water.
I saw my 3rd daughter graduate college.
I lost 2 trees in my back yard.
We had a Presidential election.
My wife has become a "Ancestry" junkie.
I got a new camera and I have been sucked into a new cause to fight.
So how in the world after all of that travel
and all the big events
AND EVEN A NEW CAMERA
can I, one year later, end up in the same damn spot?
Do you know that those Ghirardelli chocolate squares
actually have directions on the back of each square
on how to open the package???
I was talking to my daughter today
as she was driving in her car.
Here's a sentence a Dad hates to hear.
"Dad, by the way, how many miles can I drive
AFTER my low gas light comes on?"
Here's a sentence a husband LOVES to hear.
".....so, those 2 trees that came down in the back yard last night during the storm, well,
I couldn't get a hold of you so I just told the tree surgeon to go ahead and cut them up
into manageable lengths."
With the Holidays and all
I'll try to keep it light at least for a while.
Happy weekend people.
