I’m on vacation. We traveled a few states away to abscam four of our grandkids for awhile and be an ever so small influence. wide open spaces, lakes and forests is our abode. They live in town.
We watched mama with 4 cubs for an hour with them in front of the house. We went fishing, 4 wheeling, roasted and burned many marshmallows for smores. Deer walked through the yard and turkeys fed in the fields. yep, really good times!
Our early rising (5am) little man sat with me drinking a manly drink of creamed coffee on the screen porch a few mornings and discussed life far beyond his years. Good times! I think he is a budding poet with unique insights. Write them down Bud.
I’m on vacation but just from the workplace. I hope to never take vacation from family, God and country. There are important things in life and urgent things in life. I am often caught up in the urgent with no time for the important.
I will leave you with that thought as I type in the middle of a milling family ready for coffee time. I like you people in the blogosphere but I will take no more of our time for now. I need to be with them for a few more days.
