Almost Heaven

If you can keep a dry eye during Taps at a funeral you might want to check your pulse.

Today was the funeral for our friend Jim Cochran who lost his fight with cancer much too soon.  Jim was 57 and still had a lot of life and love in him.

Because of his service for our country (MSgt. Air Force) he received full military honors.  The ceremony was tough enough to get through, the gun salute was chilling.

Jim’s final resting place will be in his native state of West Virginia. 

I lived there once. 

Wheeling, 1984 just at the foot of Oglebay Park.  Slogan on the state’s license plate was “Almost Heaven”.  Just checked, now it says “Wild, Wonderful.”

While he was a wonderful person, the former was more appropriate for Jim.

We’ll miss you my friend.

Random thoughts

The Orange Couch has become an afterthought for me. 

Between Tweeting, Wall posting, and webpage updating I still have to find time to put together my on-air show.

The couch has suffered because of it.

I’ll try to do my best to contribute, even if it’s just with random thoughts.

Congrats to family friends Jordan and Tony McEwen who had their first child, daughter Berkely, earlier today.

They have no idea what’s ahead for them.

Madison and Kaitlyn are quickly approaching their third birthday. 

Man time goes by fast.

Right now my days are filled with potty training and repeating.  Which is funny because potty training is nothing but repetition which is happening between my repeating “no” and “give me a second” and other things throughout the day.

I told another friend that three is the age of  attitude and wonderment.

Our kids have both.

We get plenty of folded arms, no’s, shushing, and going limp when you try to get them to do something they have no interest in.  Within minutes of any of the above they will also become amazed at bees, what our fish eats, and sprinklers.

Like I said, Jordan and Tony have no idea.
