This Memorial Day

For a number of years now, I have been thinking I'm sure as many of you have, how commercialized holidays have become. I do understand some, but others sting. 

Even though I never served in the military, I have always been thankful to these brave men and women who serve their country for each and every one of their lives. 

I think the true meaning has gotten buried so deep, the appreciation of our freedom has dissipated as well. Sure we have our ceremonies and speeches, but that's a far cry from the barrage of advertisements we see days before this day of remembrance.

My dad, my oldest brother, and my third oldest brother served. My dad and the oldest in the Navy and the other served in the Marines.

I say thanks to all men and women who serve, my appreciation and gratitude to those who gave their lives and love to their loved ones who remember them.

First Beach Day 2011

Yesterday was my first day at the beach this year and it was a mixture for me even though I had a good time overall. 

Everyone had the day off except Charles...mine didn't seem like a day off altogether, but that's all I'm gonna say about that

It started out to be a cloudy day but slowly began to clear somewhat, becoming cloudy to partly cloudy. I heard that it rained at the oceanfront pretty heavy in the morning.

We didn't see any rain at all even with the clouds. It was warm when we arrived and breezy! We had umbrellas and had to put them down not long after we set up.

The girls didn't waste any time getting into the water...I cautiously stepped in and couldn't believe how chilly it was as I watched them play.

Of course there was time for just chillin.

As I said before, it was cloudy all day. Darcel and I had noticed how this cloud looked as if it was reaching for this ship.

ooohhh nooo!!! it looks like that cloud is trying to get me!

it's a good thing i'm equipped with my new retro
burning fuel stacked packaged excel when needed

so long cloud...cain't touch this!

I guess the ship was too fast for the cloud....hmmmm, maybe the cloud was water logged.

It did look as if it might rain later on and it cooled off quite a bit. Even the sand lost its warmth. 

That's about the time I began to lose interest, but we stayed and the clouds broke up releasing the sun's warming rays.

Me and TheWife went to Wal Mart yesterday morning to pick up a few things and a grill was one them. Nothing fancy...plain new charcoal burning grill.

As I grilled, I also started this post. This is my new toy...again, nothing fancy. This is my new Dell Inspiron mini. It's perfect for what I need right now and I can expand so to speak if necessary. I connected my Logitech wireless mouse with ease. If I ever want to work from a larger screen, no problem...I can connect my 21 inch flat panel effortlessly. It's a good thing I got it when I did. After the storm we had the other day and no electric for a day, my pc won't even turn on. I have a lot of files I need to retrieve from that hd.

Oh yes...I'm still #workinon my meme which will be starting shortly!! I'm excited about it and hope you will join me when it is launched.

The do's and don'ts will be coming soon along with how to link in for those who have never done it before.

That's all I have for now...Whatr U Workin On?

I have been thinking lately about the thought I had when I first titled my blog and the meaning behind it. I really wanted something that put the attention on you and what you are up to. 

Then I started writing poetry, I really love the addition. If you aren't aware, I'm posting my poetry on another blog...Reggie's Thinking

I'm still adding poems from this site as I go and tweaking the site. 

What I want to do with this blog isn't new, it's learning, achieving, reaching, having fun among other linking-in.

Let's say you have a business you're getting started and would like to keep you're progress noted...what better way than to post your way through and link-in with other achievers of the world.

No business?...that's ok. How about a house you're building, selling, remodeling or just have a home with memories you'd like to

How about that garden you've not been doing for a few years now....motivate yourself by posting your first day and post your progress as the garden awakens by linking-in.

Getting married? it. Going back to school after all these years? it. First time in a plane? it. Skiing, for the first time? it. That feeling you get when you it....

Right now I think it will be once a week...not sure what day yet. 

That's what I'm #workinon

Looking Good

It may not seem as if things aren't going anywhere...fear not!...things are still moving along. It's going to be a challenge for me to keep up with two blogs, but I really have a lot of confidence that once I get settled in on both blogs and manage my time, it will all come together.

Don't forget about my other blog, Reggie's Thinking where my poetry has found a new home. I'm still doing a lot of tweaking over there...I think I'm going to change the background, again.

Gotta go.

I'm still in the process of making the transition of my poetry to Reggie's Thinking. I will be absent this week from the community....because of the change and also because I have to get a handle on my time management. 

Happily, the reasons why I'm having trouble add up to three.

Yes, these three grands are part of the reason for being away from this space at times. With the warm up in the weather, times outdoors is a must.

At first I was really stressing that I hadn't posted in awhile or written a poem. Then I realize something I said in one of my earliest post....even I would have to search that one....but the point is this, if I lose focus of family and what my future is all about, these posts are all for nothing.

Staying focused....Whatr U Workin On?

Change Has Come

I have made the decision to move my poetry to another blog that I've had for a couple of years at least...doing nothing with it.

The title on that blog is Reggie's Thinking

This will get me back to concentrating on what this blog is all about. Once I get settled in a bit more with copying poems from here to there, I'm going to be adding a forum to my blog which I'm hoping will be helpful and fun for many many people.

It will be about the guts of what this blog title is.

Should you venture over to my other place, it is truly in it's infancy. I'm in no hurry to get stuff copied but I did want to start using the other site as soon as possible for the start of the poetry posting. 

That's it for now. I do have an award post I need to get done here and that will be done later today as I'm doing other stuff to get this done without a lot of hassle (hopefully).
