Think again

November 30, 2018

Peter McWilliams wrote a terrific little book entitled ‘You can’t afford the luxury of a negative thought.’ It made a very young cowboy consider that this pertains to thoughts about: your neighbors, Father Time, a below average day on the courts or links, the weather, gridlock in Washinton…or on the highway, chronic aches and pains, […]

A very young cowboy was asked about his fishing trip on Monday. ‘Caught a 38 incher.’ ‘No way, dude…tell the truth.’ ‘What I meant is that I caught 38 inches of trout…an eleven incher, two ten inch browns, and a three and a four inch small fry. Yeppers…38 inches of trout if you add them […]

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment. Grenville Kleiser

Wisdom

November 22, 2018

‘By listening…by modifying the voice in our heads, we can become wise. Once the voice in our heads loses its authority, it becomes silent. We can observe events and respond genuinely. If we really listened…not only to what people are saying, but also what we say to ourselves in quiet moments, we would empathize with […]

The last and nobleist part of beauty is grace. Thomas Reid ‘Grace doesn’t make a fuss about itself, but it subtly warms and transforms the atmosphere. At its essence, grace is the transference of well-being from one who is calm and comfortable to those around her. The graceful person is the image of our ideal […]

Peace

November 20, 2018

It occurred to a very young cowboy whilst in the shower today, that The Creator has given birds an incredible gift…the ability to sing to their heart’s content. The thought spurred me to consider how us humans would use this same gift had it been presented to us. Then it hit me. We do have […]

Who knew?

November 11, 2018

The Sunday Denver Post is chock full of articles about sports, politics, and special events. Often missed are the smaller tidbit like pieces that often are quite startling. Like today, there was a very brief notice that scientists have now concluded that the idea for the ‘bed and breakfast’ originated in the animal kingdom. Pretty […]

I went to Cabela’s yesterday as they have a terrific selection of outdoor products. They also have staff who have creative ideas to the many challenges faced by hunters and anglers.

7 Smiles

November 8, 2018

I love going to Panera Bread to pick up a tasty lunch or quick dinner. Another reason is that I can bring a smile to people’s faces. Tonight, I offered to go get some chicken noodle soup for Sally who wasn’t feeling 100 percent. When the nice young girl took my order, she asked what […]

Pause

Imagine a scale of 1 -10, with ten being the worst reality you can imagine—something like living in a war zone or being in The World Trade Center on 9/11. Maybe 9 is a serious illness that most probably will result in death. Perhaps 8 is something that will forever alter your life like going […]
