Obviously, this is a personal blog area for me. Why? I am not really sure. What will I put out here? I think it is just a place for me to capture some fun stories and let me type out my thoughts. Who am I? Well, professionally … it doesn’t really matter as this has nothing to do with work, other than being the source for a few stories on occasion. Personally, I live outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my wife, son and our golden retriever. All of the aforementioned will appear from time to time in these posts.

As I said in my welcome post, if you are looking for valuable information, it is very doubtful that you will find it here. If you are looking to be entertained, that may happen on the rare occasion. If you are looking for some special insights, it will only be to the very odd workings of my mind. Most likely, you should just click right out of here now. If you decide to stay, I hope you find something amusing or interesting.

    Thanks Dave. I am glad you like it. As I told your sister, I have to admit I am a bit of a ‘storyteller’, so there is something fun about writing these out.

    Hi Jim,
    Laurie sent a link to share the news of your Aunt Mary passing, and a little deeper insight to your family. I’m sorry for the sad news. I so appreciate the glimpse into your family and its story, one I have loved through my friendship with Laurie and your extended family from my own removed perspective. The images you conger add depth and richness to what I already know in some intuitive way.

    So many reminders all around of the precious and precarious nature of these lives we live. Especially those last vestiges to an era gone by, fleeting memories of cherished times and the adults who shaped the fabric of our lives and cared enough to nurture a moral compass. How could we have imagined it would come to mean so much, both for ourselves and the legacy of our elders.
    I’m so glad to see you expressing your creative self. And good for you for taking the time to mark this passage and experience the grief and loss of your aunt in a meaningful way. Your writing is thoughtful and I feel your big heart and great smile all the way through.
    Big hugs and lots of love to you and your beautiful family. Hope to visit again soon! Come see us in Portland! xo, Sandy
