Lawrence and Neal This is Lawrence and his new baby boy, Neal. Of course, there’s always a story behind the pictures, so I’ll share this one. Lawrence and I have been friends since 2004. He interviewed me for my first job at Bank of America, in Charlotte. I’ve been to his home a few times, we ate lunch together most every day and shared quite a few laughs throughout the years. During the time from 2004 – 2006, when we…

Trees? What you see here is a typical North Texas vista. Wide open plains. This one happened to be in Forney, TX where I was visiting my friend Richard. On this particular day I was enjoying one of my walks. I was ill-prepared for this walk, but tried to enjoy it nonetheless. Here’s what happened. I awoke, grabbed my iPhone, looked at the weather app and saw that it was nearly 60 degrees. I neglected to look at one other…

Favorite place number two Well, I’m back after a week in Dallas. It was a very good visit and I was very happy to get to spend time with Richard. Of course we laughed and had a great time, got time to discuss guy things, and just enjoyed each other as friends. Now, I’m back on home turf. I’ve always been this way. I like to go, but my goings are very short in duration, usually a week or less…

Last Thursday, I checked the weather forecast and saw that we were expecting low to mid 70 degree temperatures. I called Tim and asked if he’d like to ride down to Greenville, SC and take some photos. Of course, he said that he’d like to and mentioned that he’d never been. Perfect. So, off we went on Saturday morning, around 11:00 AM. Upon arriving, around 1:00 PM, we parked at the library and made our walk to the main downtown…

So, here I am near my birthday, Sunday, February 20th, soon to be age, 49. That means that: 1. I have traveled 583,000,000 miles * 49 around the sun, or 28,567,000,000. Wow! That’s a lot of miles! 2. I’ve been around for approximately 17,897 days. 3. Have revolved 24,901.55 miles per day, or 445,354,385 miles in rotation. I’m feeling dizzy! 🙂 Of course, in the grand scheme of things, these numbers are small compared to the age of the universe…

As I noted the other day, my son, Pedro married Ana Kay. They are officially and legally married. Throw a party! 🙂 Now, a brief trip into Tai Chi land. In Tai Chi we learn, first, the form. Interesting stuff. From the outside, it just looks like nice, smooth movements. Later, the teachers teach us the function. That is, how to use those nice smooth moves for self-defense, of course at a higher speed. Putting this into the context of…
