WEED DAY

The term ‘420’ began its sub-rosa linguistic career in 1971 as a bit of slang casually used by a group of high school kids (known as “Waldos”) at San Rafael High School in California.

The term ‘420’ (always pronounced “four-twenty,” never “four hundred and twenty”) came to be an accepted part of the argot within that group of about a dozen pot smokers, beginning as a reminder of the time they planned to meet to light up, 4:20 p.m.

SPECIAL DAY FOR ME YESTERDAY

A new day begins today…… July 2!

July 1st is done.

A new cycle begins.

I was born on July 1, 1950.

(There, I’ve revealed my age.)

My place of birth is Santurce, Puerto Rico, a suburb very close to San Juan, the capital city.

At my age, celebrations of the kind kinda lose their importance because you’ve had so many.

Yet, deep in the heart, it’s deeply comforting that family, friends, acquantainces and people who come into your life through the wonder of this wonderful web we weave, remember the day you were born.

Granted, Facebook has a great way of reminding them.

At the end of the day …. “Live like you were dying”!!


~~December 9, 2014~~ 

Every day we wake up to our own personal daily routine. We have plans for the day and we have things to do during the week, during the month, next summer, next year. What we don’t frequently realize is that life can change in a blink of an eye. Planned projects may have to be scrapped and another direction be chosen. 

All of a sudden, the direction of your life goes on a tangent. We need to be prepared. The worst would be that our time on Earth is done. 

“When a moment came that stopped me on a dime”

Take each day as it comes and “live like you were dying”.

BorderCircl

Tim McGraw‘s Christmas memory was a life changing one. He explained that while looking through his mom’s closet for presents one year he found his birth certificate, which revealed that his last name was not Smith like he had thought, but McGraw. That moment led him to find out that his real dad was not who he thought, but instead was the baseball player Tug McGraw.

Tim8

~~LYRICS~~

He said …. 

I was in my early forties
With a lot of life before me
When a moment came that stopped me on a dime

I spent most of the next days, looking at the x-rays
Talking bout the options and talking bout sweet time

I asked him when it sank in
That this might really be the real end
How’s it hit ‘cha when you get that kind of news?
Man, what’d ya do?
And he said

I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denyin’

And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’

He said, I was finally the husband
That most the time I wasn’t
And I became a friend, a friend would like to have

And all of a sudden goin’ fishin’
Wasn’t such an imposition
And I went three times that year I lost my dad
Well I, I finally read the good book
And I took a good long hard look
At what I’d do if I could do it all again
And then

I went skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I’d been denyin’

And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’

Like tomorrow was a gift
And ya got eternity to think about what to do with it
What did you do with it?
What did I do with it?
What would I do with it?

Skydiving
I went rocky mountain climbing
I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I watched an eagle as it was flyin’

And he said, Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dyin’

To live like you were dyin’
To live like you were dyin’
To live like you were dyin’
To live like you were dyin’

In the words of the Award Creator, Just Patty, at:

http://petitemagique.wordpress.com/

~~The Semper Fidelis Award~~

“I created this award because I wanted to do something special for my friends onWordPressSemper Fidelis is Latin and means Always Loyal. Loyalty means the world to me. I am very loyal myself, but I’ve got major trust issues as well. And I think trust is very important if you are sharing so much of yourself with people you meet through the internet. So I am working on that!

Why the wolves? Because wolves have very strong ties with their pack. Like a family or a great group of friends. And I just love them!”

This award stands for the loyalty and love between friends.
