Random Quote of Mine

The other night I was texting with my lovely beautiful wife and she asked me if I was bored. I am currently staying in a room that I would say is heat challenged. So my reply to her was;

“Pretty much!¬† Shivering in the cold only keeps you entertained for so long”

I was bundled up in warm clothes under the covers in my bed. Got to love the Army. I have had to deal with worse. Sleeping in a tent in Korea in the middle of winter. Being in the middle of the Iraq desert in the middle of winter and growing up in Wisconsin, I have had to deal with cold weather. I’m currently in Louisiana and you would figure it might be a little warmer. NOT! Hope you all have a warm and wonderful day.

Ice Cream Cone


Cold cool and delicious

Milky smooth to feel

Wrapping my lips around its tip

Licking longingly with my tongue

Tasty treat to my buds

Gathering all its flavor in a swirl

Such a delectable treat for me to eat

Licking, lashing all around

Nibbling it all on down

Savoring my luscious Ice Cream cone

One is good, a pair would better




Cold bites at my face

Burning my skin in its embrace

Vapors rise from between my lips

Rising into the emptiness

Winds bring a harsh cold

Sending a chill deep into soul

A frosty wonderland

Blasting into me where I stand

Skies shown in a deep blue

A sharp crispness comes into view

Wishing that summer was here soon

A Walk Into 2017

Took a walk around our neighborhood on the first day of the year. Just had this urge to go out and take pictures. It was a beautiful winter day and thankfully not too cold. Well if you call upper 20’s not too cold. Just felt like doing something different to start the new year out. Pictures they say are worth a thousand words, well I don’t know about that always. I hope you enjoy a touch of winter. Happy New Year.
