quick thought

As we are traveling through the Midwest, I am amazed at the "amber waves of grain" that cover these states. Corn, soybeans, wheat - everywhere. We live in a beautiful, great nation that has truly been blessed by God. I would be willing to bet that most of the very hard-working farmers throughout this area don't agree with the things this administration is doing. I know that many of the farmers in Louisiana don't!!

Go to Catahoula Life (http://www.catahoulalife.com/) for a great article by my first cousin Alma Womack on this same subject. She really lays it out for us.

Do what's right for our children and grandchildren - get rid of the liberals and get conservatives in office who will cut the size of government and cut these huge deficits. They put us in bondage to foreign countries and will drag us down. The United States of America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and has done more good in lifting and defending others than ony nation in history. It's worth defending and restoring.

My 57th birthday was a couple of days ago. Wow, where has the time gone? I mean, I'll be 60 in just 3 years and I don't feel like I've really "Done" anything. Strange. The oddest thing (and I've verified the feeling with a number of my friends) is that mentally I still feel like I'm 20 or so. I just can't quite do the same things:).

Life is great - wonderful wife, great kids, beautiful grandkids - what more can I say. I give Heavenly Father the credit, because he put me in the right place at the right time to join the Church, to fall in love with Linda (and, more importantly, for her to fall in love with me), and so on and so on.

Bottom line, I'm having a ball and love the blessings I have received.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day commemorates those men and women who gave their lives in the service of our nation.

May they rest in peace, may God give their families comfort, and may the people of our nation never forget the sacrifice they made so that we can enjoy the greatest freedom and nation ever known.

New Year 2010

Happy New Year, everybody!

2009 was pretty good, and 2010 promises to be even better. Being retired from the Army is good on several levels. First, I like that monthly check:). It's nice to have that security. Not having to go to drill or worry about being deployed is pretty cool, too. I hope to be able to do some traveling this year (and not just to cake shows) to see more of this great country. I feel like our business (DeseretDesigns) will do even better this year.

More to come.
