In the Navy, I traveled alot. I have been all over the world. Every year, I try and travel to one place I've never been. This year it's Waldo, FL. No, wait wait, I've been there. I will have to pick someplace else. I's thinking about Alaska.

I've always wanted to travel Route 66 on a Harley. All the was from Chicago to Los Angeles. (take my time). But, I don't want to go by myself (any takers).

I've never looked better.

Any words of wisdom or quotes to inspire?

Talent is God given. Be Humble
Fame is Man given. Be grateful.
Conceit is Self given. Be careful.

If something is wrong, those who have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action.

The other line moves faster.

Close your eyes but keep your mind wide open.

Do the best you can.
Show people that you care.
And, always try and do the right thing.

Work hard, be unselfish, never give up, don’t look back and find a way to be the best in what you do.

If you think what you did yesterday is big – you haven’t done much today.

On the night of my eighth birthday I got food poisoning and threw up a bunch in the bathroom. My parents were quite shocked since I slept in a loft bed at the time and the bathroom was on the other side of the house.

So obviously, I get to stay home from school the next day. I feel like garbage and lay around on the couch, but then it all got better. One of my siblings calls me outside to see this three or four month old kitten that wandered onto our deck. A year before, my mum had to put down her old cat and he was an uncanny doppelganger. White stripe on his nose and everything.

Well, we had been tricked, we were back-stabbed, and we were quite possibly bamboozled.

He proved himself to be a two-bit carnival charlatan almost the instant we brought him inside. He scratched up everything and gave all our other cats ear mites, stole food, sheds everywhere, etc. He was basically the opposite of Squeakers. Oh wait, Squeakers was a jerk too, so . . .

He is also the sweet pudding tat ever. He loved cuddles and belly rubs and let little kids play with him for hours, never biting or scratching or hissing once. If Patty Cakes doesn’t like you, there is something wrong with you. Or at least you did something terrible in a past life and he can tell. Every morning he woke me up with purrs and pets and boots my head off my own pillow so I wake up faster, cuddled with me when I was sick.

He’s long gone and I cry whenever I think about losing him because I loved him so much. He was a jerk but my jerk.
