Today I read online condolences for my Uncle Jim Everyone said such nice thing about him that were so spot on! We are not here forever but while we are we Have the power to pave the way for a better world.We can leave behind a legacy of love,kindness,honesty etc.Or we can be lying mean self centered jerks but its up to us. I choose the live a life of love,happiness,honesty etc.I don't ask for much in life.Some days are better then others.There are days I feel like i'm on top of the world and others that I feel like I can't get worse. I'm blessed with so many good family and friends in my life and it helps me carry on and lead a life for the better. I miss the family and friends That are now in heaven but must go on and follow the example they set for me and continue that legacy. Thank you Lord for my great Uncle Jim.He is in good hands now and we will be united one day!

Thursday I came home from work and did my usual thing,Brought in the mail,let the dog out and checked my email and then a quick visit to facebook. The first thing I see on facebook is my uncle Jim Nortons obit!Kick me in the gut won't you? I know he was sick but reading his obit on facebook was not what I saw coming! There I was sitting at my computer with damn tears running down my face!It took a good 15 minutes to re compose myself.I got changed into jeans and an old BHIA staff T shirt and headed to the beer & wine store for a bottle of wine and a liter of Pepsi,As I was checking out the woman behind the counter was telling me she saw me one day riding my bike on the wrong side of the road.I told her I must have turning down a nearby street. With kids riding double.and with no helmet she has the right to lecture ME on bike safety?WTF??? Walking in the house I was hoping thing would get better.Can I get some good news? As I walked in the kitchen I see a box on the Counter and immediately know it was my order from oldies.com!I raised my right hand in victory saying out loud "YES!!!" Uncle Jim was displaying his powers from above already! I had only 2 glasses of wine but wanted so much to have a third but being it was a work night night better choices prevailed!

OK so heroes something I haven't done is a while no pictures,no video just straight up blogging. My friend Vicky and i went to Marlins tonight for a beer.we talked about health,touched on politics and Talked about our childhood. I felt good to go out for a beer and chat.I don't do that so often anymore but when I do I love it. Talking about our childhood reminded me of how good I had it.Yeah there were some rough spots and Jerks but over all I can look at my childhood and say it was good. The music,TV shows and day to day living were something to smile about.We didn't have iphones,computers or stuff like today but I was a happy kid! I wonder with all the high tech stuff are kids really happy today? When I came home from school Id have a snack and listen to music or watch something on TV.Saturday Mornings were spent in my jammies with a bowl of cereal watching cartoons,then Id get dressed and ripped it up on my bike around our neighborhood. the intesities of homework didn't really set in till 7th or 9th grade.You loved your friends and ignored your naysayers.there wasn't all this reality show type drama. Sure you got mad when someone said s--t to you but eventually you blew it off!
