It has been hard for me to see all the turmoil going on in our country. The democrats seem to be damaging our country by doing the second impeachment, letting rioters move freely in democratic cities, and pushing socialism.

That is my opinion, and you may think otherwise. That is the beauty of our country. We can disagree and not get shot like is happening in north Korea.

Sorry I missed my last post time. Been battling ailments that keep me struggling.

Things have gotten very interesting in the political world. We still aren’t sure who our next president will be.

There is a very crucial vote going on in Georgia. Two senate seats that wil decide who controls the senate are being counted. No confirmed winner yet, but if the democrats’ win both seats the senate will be in a tie. 50-50.

Then if there is a tie vote the vice president of the United States casts the deciding vote.

I have been reading lately about the heroic stories of our veterans, and current military saving lives even though they are not in combat.

I have a few examples here:

A marine saved a woman who was trapped in her car.

A soldier protected a woman during a riot.

A marine crawled out to a dog that was drowning because he broke through the ice at a big lake. He saved to the dog.

An Marine officer and two other marines pulled a man out of his eighteen wheeler. He was badly injured.

There are many more examples. I wanted to share a few to show that our military people are always on the alert to help others.

An update on my new book coming out called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the trenches of Life.

I am very close to sending it off to a publisher. I have the publisher picked out and they seem very interested as well.

I just need to do a few more interviews, and do some cleaning up in areas of the book. I am predicting that the book will be out by April.

It has been a few days since I last posted. The Christmas rush overcame me.

It has been quite a ride. Coming into last week, I was in a hum bug mood. I couldn’t get the Christmas spirit going. I was having my pity party that no one wanted to come to.

Christmas Eve came and it was just my wife and I alone. Except that we did a Zoom gathering. ALL of my family was on one screen. Three of my children and their spouses. Nine grandchildren, and a partridge in a pear tree.

We all opened our presents while the others watched. We did gift baskets this year so that we didn’t have to buy so many presents. It was wonderful. Each basket had goodies galore. Wine, bakery goods, nuts, and many other wonderful stuff. The bakery goods were hand made by the way. I have gained six pounds just since Christmas Eve!!

Then we went on and had a very small gathering of my wife’s sister, brother-in-law, their daughter and her husband. We exchanged gifts, and I made out like a bandit. I got a logo mask from my alma mater at Oregon State University. Yah! A great puzzle of different dogs. (I love dogs!) I also got a subscription for Netflix. Already watched seven movies.

Then yesterday afternoon we connected again on Zoom with some close friends we have known for over forty years. One couple was from Cannon Beach, Oregon, and the other was a lady friend from Jacksonville, FL. Each of them also had their children on Zoom with them. It was so much fun. Remembering things from the past and catching up.

Why am I sharing my boring times this holiday? It is because I needed it to happen to get me out of my funk. I was so deep in despair that I couldn’t see the forest through the trees.

___________________________________

While I was at my pity party, I started thinking about the troops that couldn’t be home for Christmas. Then I really told myself to knock off the whining, and be thankful that they are willing to do that.

I have a few years where I couldn’t be home, and I know the loneliness, and the overwhelming urge to want to be home with family.

____________________________

Thank all of you who served away from home during the holidays. It is extra hard, and I admire you for you service during these times.

President Trump signed to bill that will get the money neded for the troops. I can certainly see why he didn’t want to sign it. It is the biggest pork bill ever. Many bills thrown into one to appease the idiots in Congress.

He was a very brave man to hold out so long, but his better judgment helped him follow through.

He has been a great president, and unless some miracle pops up he will be gone in a few weeks.

If it is gotten too crazy for you, GET HELP!

Here is a toll free number to call 24/7. There are highly qualified counselors there to help you. They will not hang up until they know you are OK.

Do not take on this not so friendly world alone.
