I got my Pumpkin . As I was very excited to start carving it, we got torrential rains.
So now I watched 1 episode of BONES, and 4 episodes of LONGMIRE.
I usually do not watch TV, but we TIVO AND AMAZON AND HULU and ROKU.
Well I do not but my family does.
So I slept late, like an Angel. ( As my friends know I am not an angel). But I got out of my arm splint and started therapy today. Shooting range in 2 - 3 weeks I am back for my lessons.
The fall leaves are spectacular in my area. Breathtakingly so. Until my next note, be safe and watch over all your friends back.

Hello. I hope this note finds you and your loved ones well. The weather in the northeast is turning cooler. The leaves will soon turn into the most beautiful shades of red and yellow. I believe fall to be my favorite season of all.
How I miss my family in Norway , and the coast. Sometimes it feels like my throat closes. And my heart threatens to break. Thank God, I have my daughter, which helps me with the rare but searingly painful moments.
Wow, She just started her Junior year in Highschool and works her first Job. How did this happen?
Time flies, I remember her birth just like it was yesterday.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a truly prosperous and delightful 2011 (no matter what the government is doing :-) Just enjoy everything you can enjoy and be kind to everyone (it's good for them and it's good for you too).
Hope all is well and You have a Blessed Week!
Take Care, Be Safe, and God Bless!

"Just Another Man"
He looks in the mirror every morning and night,
Does he see what I see, it would be nice if he might.
He sees a rude man as he stands there,
I see someone who needs someone to care.
He sees a mean man, because he has to be tough,
I see someone who deals with more than enough.
He sees how he tries not to cry and feels he has no heart,
I see someone who has to keep his feelings and work apart.
He sees a murderer because he shot someone last night,
I see someone who saved someone else from a fight.
He sees a failure because he did not arrive in time
I see someone who did his best and needs peace of mind.
He sees just another man as he enters the day,
I see a special man who does his best in every way.
For all the years, he has put on the uniform of blue,
He has never realized how much he protects me and you.
But, as he starts the day again, I just wish he could see,
What he really is and how much he means to you and me.
