"If one advances in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." ~ Henry David Thoreau

I am an old soldier who spent forty-plus years in uniform. Now, I am living life the way I have always dreamed of living it.  I move slowly, take things a day at a time, and strike out for fun places on a whim.  I am spending more time with my family, doing all of the things I had no time to do in the past.

Consider the words here the ramblings of an old man, once a pretty good soldier, who now wishes nothing more in his life than time with the woman he loves, moments to build friendships with his kids, a chance to pass his hobbies on to his grandson, days of playing with his granddaughter, and walks with his pup.

Don't expect anything profound, life-changing, or even interesting here.

For the first time in my life, I can speak my mind...and bluntly.  Expect that.
