Here’s a gun and hot weather for you, kid.

And like lightning from the sky there was a great crackling noise, and suddenly,  standing before you was the Blogger. Do you run? Do you have time to hide? Or do you stand there slack jawed in amazement as  you panic in a wild attempt to do all three at once? For when he returns none shall be prepared.”   – The Book of the Blogger 5:17

Okay, so I was rudely awakened this morning by the sound of an alarm clock and gunfire.

Now before you say “Murphy! You need to pack your stuff and get out of there!” I ought to explain the normal summer routine of the neighborhood kids. You see, since the beginning of the summer they have all been into buying airsoft pellet guns. Anything from the smallest pop pistol to the loudest belt feed turret machine gun. So on this day, unbeknownst to me in advance, they had a “Battle at dawn”.  They were walking around, all padded up from head to their toes and wearing goggles for protection while it was eighty seven degrees out…

“Now thats all nice and funny, but what does this have to do with your return, Murphy?” you might wonder. Well I’ll tell you simply. After my initial waking up I realized it was hot. It was really, really hot. I tried to use the laptop fan to cool off…needless to say, that was a bad idea. After getting a ice pack for my face, I laid down and decided on telling people how wonderful my day has been going. 

How has yours been?

King and Lionheart-Of Monsters and Men. Song meanings? (Old unposted articles #2)

Well, I just think that perhaps she’s the one who keeps him, the King, going on. The Lionheart, the bravery that keeps him from cowering away…  is he one thing that keeps him going and holds him up, her love is what keeps him going, that makes him brave, strong, a King…. She’s what he needs to be the King, his heart, his bravery, his strength, his love, none of it would be there without her… she’s always behind him whatever he does she’s always there to catch his fall, always there to keep him up and keep him strong, always there to save him, help him, keep him safe from himself.

Alright, Life. Challelege accepted!

Keep moving forward. It has been a saying for decades, that inspires us to put the past behind us, to learn from our mistakes, and to perservere through upcoming hardships.

It’s Good To Be Back! Here’s My Weekend.

After a long time away from my blog it feels good to come back and read some of the old articles, look at the pictures, and just  to say “Remember when,”.

I got a part time job working at a waterpark, not as a lifeguard, but on the maintenance crew. Which requires working odd hours through out the week. Honestly, some days all I can do is come home and fall asleep on the couch. It seems pulling me away from the things I love.

I saw my wonderful Kitty this past weekend. We cuddled, went swimming in lake, and then laid out on the dunes together. There was a beautiful sunset, then moon was out, I don’t even think she noticed it though. God, everyday I get to see her I’m so happy. It’s like a photograph, my problems fade out in the background and all that’s left is the perfect picture of her.

I wished on a star for you, love.

Sally Ride, the first American woman to fly in space, died Monday after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer.

Goodbye, Sally Ride. Thank you for taking our dreams to the stars.
