Taking time for things that really matter.

Hug your wife or your husband and tell her or him 'I love you' and really look them in the eyes and mean it.

Spend all day away from home. Get a new fresh look at things out there.

Yes, the road is long with many a winding turn and pot hole.

I thought it was very quiet out the night of the 88th Oscars. Maybe half the planet was watching.

I was. But I remember once when a concert being performed by the great Garth Brooks was in Dallas one night and the streets were as quiet as a 1960's sunday morning.

I can barely keep my eyes open. I am back on all my medicines. I decided to wait until my doctor takes blood samples and tells me what I can not take hence forward with my daily intake.

The wild weeds are all coming out and the signs of spring are being realized. If only the world would wake up and look. This won't be around in 50 years. Trees, gone, birds, to some degree gone, snow on a winter day at 80 degrees, forgotten! Being here now is a rare event in human life for everyone on this planet.

Savor every day as if it would be your last and learn as if you would be living forever. Take care of you body because it is the temple of the soul.

Read more books, watch less reality t.v. Throw away your cell phones and go fishing will ya?

Well, it's a thought. I remember me and my best friend Ken Tyler, went with his mom and dad and my mom and dad to Honey Grove and went to the lake and fished all day until we were sunburned and it was essentially paradise for a day. We didn't catch many fish but we drank Dr. Pepper and ate canned pinto beans and burnt hot dogs. So it was a fond memory I will always favor.

Burnt hot dogs and canned pinto beans. Sounds like camping!

I was just a kid at the time. I was too busy having fun to notice anything wrong with the bugs, the sunburn or burnt dogs. lol.

We did eventually catch some fish but Old man Tyler threw them back.
