Happy Birthday, Joe

Wishing a Happy Birthday in heaven to my brother, Joe Garza. You would have been 48 years old today. Even though you were the typical pesky little brother, what I would give to have you here to bother me for one more day.

My Pictures

Here are some pictures that I’ve taken lately. 

My 5-week old crossover Terrain hit a 1,000 miles. 

Greek Friday with co-workers at Mina & Dimi’s. We haven’t gone in a while, need to make plans to go soon. 

The sunset in South Texas. 

This moth decided to hand on my window. 

I really need to start taking more pictures. My even a selfie or two. 

Ain’ That The Truth

Some sayings I see hit the nail on the head on how I’m feeling. 

Thought of the Day

Saw this posted by a friend on Facebook and wanted to share it. 

Not sure why my mind has been spinning around so much lately. Too many things that I’m trying to grasp and understand. 

Not sure what I need to do to get myself centered again.  I wish I had someone to tell all my thoughts to, but I would probably scare them away. 

Until then, I’ll take a deep breathe and take one step at a time.

Rebuild My Record Collection

Well, a couple of weeks ago, I brought a record player with the intent of playing records. One small issues, I don’t have any albums to play.

Back in the day, I have over 200 albums. Everything from Elvis to Charlie Rich. But when the CD craze started, I got rid of all my albums. Now, I need to start off over again, building up collection of records I can find.

Along with my album collection, I had a lot of 45″ records too.  Oh, how I would lie next to my record player, playing the little records over and over again. Those were fun times… until the damn record would skip!

So now I’ll be searching eBay and Amazon.com to rebuild me album collection. Hopefully I can find some at a good price and find some of my favorite ones.

Wise Words

This is a post that my friend, Debbie posted. We have been friend since the 2nd or 3rd grade.  

She is dealing with something that no one wants to deal with when it comes to seeing your parent ill. 

My prayers are with you and your family. I will try to live by what you wrote. 

I feel like I need to remind everyone I care about to not be so stubborn. If you need help, or if you know what you’re doing isn’t making you healthy and happy and are able to enjoy life the way God wants you to, then go get help. Ask for it or accept it when people offer. There are people out there in this world who dedicate their lives to helping others. They do research for new medication or get training to save lives – they know what it takes! Say yes! Try new things until you feel good and can be healthy. Do it for your family and friends who love you. I know a lot of people who ignore their health issues, or are afraid to see the doctor. They tell everyone, “I’m fine.” Knock it off!!! Take back your health! Go to the damn doctor and then take care of yourself! Make good choices and good change in your life. Your life matters to someone. So, if you relate to this rant in any way, call your doctor, eat a healthier lunch, get some exercise, quit smoking & drinking and if you know something isn’t right get to the doctor immediately. The world is stupid enough, don’t add to it by being stupid about your health. Seriously! Unless you are living under a rock in the woods, you have people in your life who care about you. Your life matters to them and they want you to enjoy that life. Rant over, but I hope you are taking it to heart. 😠


This past week, I was having a “Pity Party” for myself. I was questioning my value of an employee and compared by myself with others and it made me sad… mad… and confused. 

Why did they pick me? Why does so and so get everything and I don’t? When will I get what I’m worth? 

But after talking to a friend about it, he made me realize that I am valued as an employee and that my skills and experience are the reason I am where I am right now. He also Le me know, as a person, I am valued as a friend.

So after hearing this, I was able to take a step back and realized that things happen for a reason, my time will come and I am truly blessed. 

I may not be rich or be the perfect person that people want, but I am blessed. I have  he richness of knowing that there are people out there that value me as a person, a friend. And at the end, that is how I want to be remembered. 

So the next time I have a “Pity Party”, I will not compare myself to others and count my blessings. There is a reason things play out like they do. There is a reason I am not picked for a job, a reason why I’m not with that person. 

I am thankful for all I have and blessed to have the people that are in my life. I am where I need to be and have the people that I need in my life. I just need to enjoy the journey and things that should happen will happen. 

Make it a great weekend.
