Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie
This week’s challenge is to post an image of a selfie. I have used this one before, but I really like this photo. We were on a 7 hour road trip from Calgary to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. What adds to the photo is my son’s dog. He spends a lot of his time on trips like this, doing exactly what he is doing. Paws on the dashboard watching the road unwind.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Family
This week we have been given the topic of family. To me family is a far-reaching intangible. I have my natural family, my in-law family, my work family, my far-flung friend family, among others. Makes it very hard to choose a photo to post here. To decide, I played some eenie meenie miney mo game and came up with this one. We are bereft of grand children at this time, but, while we wait, we have a grand dog, our son’s King Charles cross. Prepare to be cuted out of your socks.
This prompt from WordPress “Daily Prompt: Goals” dropped into my email the other day. This one got me thinking. When I started this blog, I had an idea to create a personal storehouse to help Lori and I remember our various adventures and share them with our friends in some way. I held to this for a while and then, miracle of miracles, people started reading about these adventures, people I didn’t know. I soon realized that WordPress is a very large community, filled with people with the same general idea, that being, I have something to share with the world. I started following blogs, getting involved in comments and, all the while watching my blog grow. As it grew, I began to dabble in other areas of my interests, music, sports and opinion. I eventually came to a crossroads in that I felt I was losing focus on my original thought for this blog. I even went so far as to create 3 other blogs, splitting my interests in 4. This did not work, we don’t get paid for this, and 4 blogs was like a full-time job. I folded up 2 of them and went to a music blog and the original. I figured out again that it was far too much work and folded up the music blog as well. Now I am what I am, and feeling pretty good about it.
I still have the urge to track back a bit and concentrate on the travel side more, but, I really love my music as well. No matter what I end up doing, I do know on thing. I can’t see me quitting. This is way too much fun.
Rock on my WordPress friends, and never miss an opportunity to go somewhere.

This postaday thing is kind of cool. Saves a hell of a lot of thinking, and I don’t have to do it every day either. This one is interesting. The instructions are simple enough:
Put together a a musical playlist of songs that describe your life, including what you hope your future entails.
Not bad only a syntax error and a minor spelling mistake.
Sounds simple enough. Let’s give er a go eh mates.
Describe my life, hmmmm, describe my life, let’s see, describe my life. No many songs that I can think of that involve working sleeping and working, at least not many I like anyways. Gawd, this is tougher than I thought. Let’s try the future. Ah that’s better.
or, more hopefully
Yes, I want to become a pirate. A pirates life for me. I hope….and I dream.
