Happiness

What a difference a couple of months can make. 

To those who are true friends… thank you. 

To those who I thought were true friends… thank you for the lessons learned.

To those who listened to me and not judge… thank you. 

I believe all of this has gotten ms to where I am at right now. 

The next adventure is about to start real soon. 

I’ve got to be happy. 

Song of the Day

I was going through my music library on my iPhone and here is one of the songs that I have.  

I remember when I first heard this song on “Family Ties.”


“At This Moment” is a song that was first recorded by Billy Vera & The Beaters in 1981 during a string of performances at the Roxy in West Hollywood (January 15–17) and featured on their self-titled live album, Billy and the Beaters, released that year on the American subsidiary of Japan’s Alfa Records.

Then, when the song was included on several episodes of the NBC sitcom Family Ties during the 1985-86 season as the love song associated with Alex P. Keaton (played by Michael J. Fox) and his girlfriend Ellen Reed (played by Tracy Pollan, whom Fox eventually married in real life), the exposure renewed interest in the song.

I just love this song. 

Pets

A friend from Kindergarten posted this on Facebook. Her mother’s cat passed away the other day. 

I had never seen this before. 

In memory of my cat, Phil and for my friend’s cat too. 

Four Feet in Heaven

Your favorite chair is vacant now…

No eager purrs to greet me.

No softly padded paws to run

Ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry

Will say it’s time for feeding.

I’ve put away your bowl, and all

The things you won’t be needing;

But I will miss you little friend,

For I could never measure

The happiness you brought me,

The comfort and the pleasure.

And since God put you here to share

In earthly joy and sorrow;

I’m sure there’ll be a place for you

In Heaven’s bright tomorrow…

I Smell Cake*

Well, one of my TV crushed past away today.

Richard Hatch, star of the original “Battlestar Galactica” and the Syfy remake, died on Tuesday after a battle with pancreatic cancer, his manger confirmed to Variety. He was 71.


I really couldn’t tell you about any of the episodes that watched as a kid, but oh how I loved Apollo and Richard Hatch. 

R.I.P. Richard Hatch and thank you for being one of my TV crushes. 

Side Note:

* My brother, Joe and I would always say this to each other after someone famous died.
“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

“My Cake” is the sixth episode of Scrubs’ fourth season. J.D.’s father dies and he and his brother Dan have to cope with it.

Do You Remember…

Shrinky Dinks are a children’s toy and activity kit consisting of large flexible sheets which, when heated in an oven, shrink to small hard plates without altering their color or shape. They reached the height of their popularity in the 1980s. Most sets are pre-printed with outline images of popular children’s characters or other subjects, which are then colored in before baking.

Shrinky Dinks were invented in 1973 by two housewives (Betty Morris and Kate Bloomberg) of Brookfield, Wisconsin, as a Cub Scout project with their sons.

I remember being a kid and having Shrinky Dinks. The smell of melting plastic in the air and touching the hot little plastic pieces before the cooled off. 

Now, I see the have a little oven just for Shrinky Dinks. 


Man, I loved to have loved one when I was a kid. 

I just might have to get a box of Shrinky Dinks and recall my happy memories from when I was a kid. 

Super Bowl LI

The New England Patriots are kings of the NFL once again after beating the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in Super Bowl LI.



Now, I’m not a fan of either team, but the Patriots winning again is impressive. 

And Tom Brady winning five rings,you can’t deny that he is one of the best QB’s ever. 

NFL Hall of Fame 2017

The NFL Hall of Fame class of 2017 was announced over the weekend. 


Running back LaDainian Tomlinson leads the pack of inductees. He will be joined in Canton, Ohio, by running back Terrell Davis, quarterback Kurt Warner, defensive end Jason Taylor, kicker Morten Andersen, safety Kenny Easley and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. 

I’ve watched most of these former players play. I’m glad to see kicker Morten Anderson make it.
