Wow! August. Where does the time go? Have to say that the summer has been fun; in between the rain storms. It was a very light winter. I live in one of the coldest places in the USA and really we only got -30 for about three weeks. That’s very unusual for us. Normally we have a couple of months of subzero weather. Last Thanksgiving we could have been swimming. Well not really but compared to Thanksgiving of 2014 it was tropical here. Then this summer—rain. Nonstop, continual rain. It has been crazy. However, I have made good use of it. I went to Thailand with my sister, Mother’s day at my Grandma’s, Symphonies, Theater (Beauty and the Beast and Lion King), Opera (Rusalka), camping, kayaking, etc. This winter I have another three, maybe four, trips planned. So all in all very good year. Lots of fun. I hope that next year is just as good.
A lot of changes at work too. I have had lots of new trainings that will help me do my job better or at very least will get me out of the office more. Many crazy things happened, states wide, that has affected my outlook of my job and how we manage our daily lives. For those who might not know I am in Law Enforcement. It’s very scary knowing my brothers and sisters are getting shot down. Not for who or what they are but for what they do. How sad. Its sad loss of life, sad media coverage, sad the lack of support. Only after the second Baton Rouge shooting did management come down and say that we will no longer work alone. That lasted a whole week. I understand that in a small rural town it is easy to think that all that evil is so far away. But it’s not. Evil is everywhere. Sadly.
Now as fall is drawing nigh, I feel that I should blog another story. I have a few that are already written. I have many started. However, I would love some inspiration. Some ideas. If you guys think of anything let me know. Otherwise I can dig up my old writings and get something posted for now. J
How has your summer gone? Anything neat happened or you did? I can’t wait to hear.
