Skype Date


The screen flickers on

Sounds of a machine coming to life

Putting in my password

Waiting for everything to load

Updates, scans, this that and another

Finally I can open up the program that brings you into view

Seeing you sitting there, with a smile that melts my heart

An excitement inside me whenever my eyes fall upon you

Sitting so pretty and a smile that takes my breath away

Wishing you were back home now

Sitting here instead of there

I begin to say Hi

But no sound comes out on your side

Alas, not all is perfect here in Skype world

So just being able to see you is all I will get

Sexy, smoking hot and looking so lovely to boot.

Hurry home, it’s been to long

My love, my life, my one and only….

Empty Bed


An empty bed awaits me tonight

Wishing you were here by my side

Tossing and turning unable to sleep

Missing the sensation of you near

Your scent lingers in the air

Wanting to reach out and feel your embrace

Missing that touch of lace

Seeing your face in my dreams

Anticipating the day you return

Where into your arms I will lay

In our bed where we will play

So hurry back to where you belong

My heart waits to play you its song

Army Cadence – Mama, Mama Can’t You See

When I first joined the Army, the most amazing thing I remember was hearing formations going by singing cadence. Here we were around 130 brand new recruits and we sounded so weak, and along comes this other unit and it was just a roar. I was amazed that something could sound so loud and so powerful at the same time. Cadence is sung to keep us in step, we have different types from marching to running. Some of the ones we use to sing were a little colorful. My wife hates when I still sometimes catch myself singing cadence. So I just want to share a few different ones with you. Hope you enjoy them. It is hard to get the full feeling of one unless you are there live to hear it. For those of you that have served, what were some of your favorite ones. I always liked the Airborne Ranger ones and yellowbird was one also. So we go.

Spring Walk Around the Neighborhood

Just took a little walk around the neighborhood. Love Spring with the air getting warmer and things starting to grow back. Looking at God’s creation just brings a smile to my face. In Wisconsin we have what is called the Ice Age Trail. It is a trail system that runs from the bottom of the state to the top of the state. It is an amazing trail to walk in so many areas.
