Welcome Summer 2017.

Looks like I’ve neglected this page since September of 2015 but I was thinking of updating it on the new year since it’s now February 1st why not put a new post on my page? Anyway have a great day and enjoy life because I don’t know what else to do so deal with that so end of message.


In honor of the day I have added a picture of my dog.


My dog is a stone cold cutie and solid as a rock. The cost of care and feed is nonexistent, I love my dog.

This is the 11th year of National Dog Day and on their website they offer you a list of 20 ways to celebrate today. Here are just a few of the ways you can celebrate the day. Be sure to explore the 20 Ways to Celebrate National Dog Day for the complete list.

Write your Congressman and ask that he/she support the ban of Puppy Mills and Gas Chambers in your state.

Spend the day taking photos of your dog and then enter our photo contest!

Assist an ill or elderly neighbor by walking their dog.

Brush your dog to eliminate excess fur.

Teach your dog a new trick.

Buy your dog a fashionable collar and leash.

To let go does not mean to stop caring,
it means I can’t do it for someone else.

To let go is not to cut myself off,
it’s the realization I can’t control another.

To let go is not to enable,
but allow learning from natural consequences.

To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
the outcome is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
it’s to make the most of myself.

To let go is not to care for,
but to care about.

To let go is not to fix,
but to be supportive.

To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
but to allow others to affect their destinies.

To let go is not to be protective,
it’s to permit another to face reality.

To let go is not to deny,
but to accept.

To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.

To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.

To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less and love more
To let go and to let God, is to find peace!
Remember: The time to love is short.

“Letting Go Takes Love”, Author unknown

I really like this poem. It helps me focus on the now. I’ve been reading this daily for about 6 months. I hope you enjoy the words and message.

As I sit in the room dubbed the back room of the Stew CASA, after setting up my home studio for future audio projects. I looked into the upper corner of the room and saw this can of beer that my dad and mom placed in that spot for over 20 years. I no longer have my parents to laugh and bust their chops for keeping something like this up in the corner of our home. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be in this house the only home I’ve known, but these memories will keep forever in my head. Here are some pictures of the corner and can with what it says in red. I love you mom and dad so much.


List of states that this beer can traveled with my parents

This and it’s sisters traveled through these states in the bottom of the saddle bags of Bill and Mary Helen’s 1990 Goldwing SE motorcycle

Hillbilly decorations

Miller Lite can, some kind of house, 1996 ATL Olympic Coke Bottle, Bronco’s Super Bowl Champ Can of Beer and a stuffed smiley face guy. You know just your standard list of mementos in a Region Rat home.
