I was out on our deck with our kids and dogs last night when I realized I left my cell phone inside. As I opened the sliding glass door I heard my phone ringing. I saw it was a call from my wife, who was out running a few errands, but I wasn’t quick enough in answering as the call ended.
When you think about ways to spend the money you earn for working hard at your job all year long, what are you thinking about?
Is it a couple of nice tickets to a sporting event, maybe a weekend concert getaway or even just a few days at home relaxing out and about in your own town? No matter what it is, the money you earned is yours, and you have every right to spend that cash on whatever your heart chooses.
Sometimes nostalgia strikes when you never thought it would. Maybe when you are eating your favorite ice cream, reading and old book or perhaps when you are sitting at your daughter’s school attending a program in the cafeteria. It did for me, not only did I pass the gym and the office with a grimace, but the mere presence of the principal’s office and the coach standing outside of the lounge, was enough to bring those memories flooding through my mind.
Editor’s note: Years ago, we had to have our Sheltie dog put down. Smartest dog I’ve ever seen. Old Miles. May you rest in peace in doggie heaven.
My oldest son Brian named our new Sheltie after the jazz great Miles Davis. It’s an odd name for a dog I know, but considering he named our other dog, a Chihuahua mix, Tatiana, because he thought she looked Russian; I guess that name makes just as much sense.
Brian brought the little Russian-Mexican doggie princess home as a replacement for our cat Ebony who passed away in 2006.
