Whoopee, shazam, Scooby dooby doo. I have Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday off. The weather looks good towards the end of the week and the big operative word is Swordfish.

My good friend Captain Lawrence Walker (Cowboy) is coming down for my days off and will help Dorothy and myself fishing this weekend.

My Baptism not only went well but to me represents a significant change on how I will live the rest of my life. No one wants to be preached to if they don’t ask for it so I’ll merely say “One who walks with Him never walks alone.”

Dorothy and I have been married for 1 month. Aside from being a great friend and a great wife, she is also a fabulous cook. We are going through the growing pains of 2 people living together for the first time.

What is Memorial Day????? It is a holiday to remember those who have given their lives in service in all branches of The US Armed Services. How easily it is to talk about picnics, swordfishing and days off from work but not remember those who have fallen for our right to be free in this country, to have different political views and yet live according to the rules of our land.

At 9:00 in the morning on Memorial Day Dorothy and I will be praying together for our fallen service men and women. If you want to join us and you believe in prayer you should feel our presence no matter where you are.

On the 31st it looks like my final destiny will begin to be revealed to me. Will I be given the time to fully live up to my potential in helping other people or should this be a time to put an exclamation mark and a period to what I have accomplished so far. We will be scheduling an appointment for endoscopy biopsy in which one very, very small needle penetrating through the stomach wall and into a tumor outside of the stomach will determine my destiny.

I have always said “In life if you are not prepared to lose, you will never win.” It is supposed to refer to the fight that we all have in us. I have always said to myself when people ask for help, I say “watch the movie Rudy 3 times and come back and see me.”

Never give up, never say never.

Everyone have a spectacular weekend with family and friends and let’s all pray at 9:00 AM EST for our fallen veterans.

God Bless America, God Bless President Trump and God Bless All Men and Women who have served, will serve and are serving our great country.
