Well you all.... we and the family are going to Cancun September 1st. I am so looking forward to seeing my grandkids faces when they get there. I also get to spend time with my son and daughter their in which we have always wanted to do. Mom Janice is coming and we are going to show her a great time. Out on the town MOM!!!!! Also Matt and Easton are joing us, my oh my the whole family, this is it people party for 7 days!!!!!!!
Well it's my next to last day at Holz Rubber Company. I have to say this was one of the best learning experiences of my life. When I started here everything was like reading chinesse, I knew nothing about this business. The group there was always there to help guide me through it and figure it out. The people (my new friends) were just awesome to work with. Though I didn't get to spend much personal time with them I feel as if I have known them forever. I wish them all the best and I hope we all stay in touch. THANK YOU HOLZ FOR THE OPPORTUNITY YOU GAVE ME. I'll miss you all!!!!!
Well I just wanted everyone to know that I have found my church. I have gone now 3 weeks in a row and totally enjoy and feel great when I'm there as well as after words. I feel in my life I really need God now, I know he's always been there but I kinda went side way's you know.
I am totally looking forward to our weekend at Snugharbor with family and friends. They say we may get a little rain but that won't stop, will it you all?
News: T.J. may have a new manager job in Gilroy and they maybe moving. We sure will miss having them so close to us, but hell I would drive anywhere to see them and my grand kids.
I, yes me, the God of Thunder heehee, have a second interview with a company tomorrow. Say a prayer for me, but it's looking good but you never know until the check is in your hand.
My Lil woman has been working her ass off for the last six day's straight and I can't wait to spend the rest of the week an week end with her. I have missed her.
So I added some new music to our site tell me what you think, first three song's. You know can't keep it boring and I thought they fit the two of us.
Well since I haven't written anything for day's I thought I would catch up a Lil bit.
I first have to tell you all about our 30Th anniversary, we did go camping at snugharbor in the delta and it was fantastic, so nice were going back May 1st with a group a friends and you all know who you are.
We get there the first day and my sister and bro in law came up to visit with us and fish a little bit. Well, my Lil bride had just poured her first drink and was heading to the dock and missed a step and raked this hell out of her shin, bruised her knee and arm and damn it she spilled her drink. She was laughing so hard, she couldn't cry to many people watching. Anyway jacked herself up pretty good but she's getting better. Now then, a couple pulled into the site next to us, Tony and Val they were from Hayward and this was their first trip in there new trailer. So we helped them out quite a bit setting them up. Well we invite them to have dinner with the four of us and damn this one tops the first one. Betty, Richie and myself were sitting on one side of the picnic table, Diane, Val and Tony on the other side. Betty and Richie finish dinner and get up to have a smoke as the four of us left at the table talked and finished dinner. I was the next to finish and got up, turned around to talk to Betty and Richie and low and behold, Diane, Val and Tony sitting together on the one side tipped the table over, landed on their backs and all the food and wine spilled from the table onto the three of them. Had to make sure they were OK, but then we just had to laugh, it was a funny sight. Diane and Val hurt their tail bones and to this day are still hurting. Tony jacked up his shoulder and could hardly lift his arm the next day. But everyone is getting better. We have been in touch with them since and they are recouping. So Richie comes up to visit us again on Monday and he catches about a 7 to 8 lb stripper. We put it on a stringer, hung it from the dock in the water and we go for a boat ride. He took Diane and I to lunch and we were out for about 4 hours. Came back docked the boat and began fishing again. I said, Richie I need to take a look at that nice fish you caught again. Pulled up the stringer and a sea Lyon had ripped the belly right out of that fish, it was funny.
Diane, Layla and I spent the next two day's just relaxing. I think Diane needed more than I did. What a great adventure.
Were both looking forward to our May 1st trip and I think Diane will be much more careful. Heehee.
I wrote a poem a long time ago and thought I would share it:
I knelt to pray but not for long I had to much to do Must hurry off and get to work For bills would soon be due And as I said a hurried prayer Jumped up from my knees My christian duty was now done My soul could be at ease All through the day I had no time To speak a word of cheer No time to speak of Christ to friends They'd laugh at me I feared No time, no time, way to much to do That was my constant cry No time to give to those in need At last it was time to die And when before the lord I came I stood with down cast eye's Within his hands he held a book It was the BOOK OF LIFE! Your name I can not find I once was going to write it down But never found the time.
Remember were we come from and remember who you are Because God is watching and not from a far.
I have to tell you all I had lunch today with two of my old friends whom I use to work with. It was incredible. I worked with them for seven years and they are like family. The company I worked for has decided to close the doors this March 31st and the people that let me go are the people that will now be out of work. I do not wish that on anybody in these times and I have to say I worry about my friend Matt Stanley. He has worked there for 31 years as well as my friend Joan and they are just being hung out to dry. But anyway it was so nice to have our final lunch together today and the people at ourfavorite restaurant was so nice to us it was amazing. It almost and actually did bring some tears. I love all of my friends and family there. They no who they are. Buh By Stockton Wholesale my old friend!!!!!!!!!! Nothing Last forever I guess! Matt Stanley always my pal, Joany always my girl, Ed Gale well I love ya pal. The rest well you know. Hmmmmmmm. Here's to you Lee Turner my mentor my friend my business partner. Love you dude!!!!! I miss you and I know you would not have let this happen.
Well HOWDY DOWDY all. It's another Monday morning. I wanted to say, yesterday Diane, Betty , Richie and I went to a new area to check out for camping this week end for our anniversary. We found a great place called Snug Harbor out in the delta and we booked it. You can check it out at www.snugharbor.net Anyway this place is cool. you actually have to take a ferry across the river to get to it. We stooped in the Lil town of Walnut Grove and Richie and Betty bought us pizza for lunch so we sat there by the river and enjoyed (thank you Richie & Betty). So anyway we are leaving Saturday and coming home Wednesday. The weekend is suppose to be really nice weather and I hope to catch lots of fish.
So happy Monday to all and damn I hope I hear something about a job this week.
