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.

"The Eyes of a Man"
If you ever can look into the eyes of a man dressed in blue,
It will make you wonder why he protects me and you.
He suffers from lack of sleep, the red eyes will tell,
Even missing a meal or two to keep us all well.
Years of tears sometimes built up inside,
From what he has seen, but thinks he hides.
Look a little deeper in his eyes and you could even see,
How he felt all the years he has protected you and me.
For all the times people have been rude to him,
For pulling them over, while out with their friends.
For the little girl he saved from a burning car,
While others just watched him from afar.
Not to mention, the bank robber he caught last week,
People never talk to him unless it’s his help they seek.
For the drugs he has confiscated over time,
The people, he has saved comes to his mind.
The times he wonders at the end of the day,
Is it worth all this pain, for such little pay?
But, don’t look unless you are willing to see,
He is a human being just like you and me.
He wears his uniform, gun and a badge on his chest,
Doesn’t make him perfect just a grade above the rest.
For if you look real hard you will also see,
A man who you respect is who he longs to be.
