My wife and I both enjoy being outdoors. And we like to be
around water....lakes, rivers, the ocean, etc.
My wife particularly enjoys relaxing on the water,

while I prefer to fish.

Mini Roses

About 4 months ago my daughter bought me a mini rose plant. It wasn't more than a few inches high and only had two small flowers on it at the time. I transplanted it to a larger pot a few weeks later. This is how it looks today with about 11 flowers.

Take some time out from your busy schedule to "stop and smell the flowers". Thanx for stopping by. Come back now and then to see what I'm up to.

I work with aged (over age 65) and disabled (ages 18-64) adults. The other day I called an 82 year old woman who had applied for a particular service. After introducing myself and briefly explaining the service, I set up a home visit for the following day. After verifying her address, I told her I would look forward to seeing her the next day. As I was getting ready to hang up she asked, " Do you need my phone number too?" I paused for a second and thought, "Huh?" Then I waited for a moment to see if she would catch on to what she had asked me (remember, I called HER). After a brief silence, I realized she didn't have a clue. So, to save her some embarassment, I said, "I think I have your phone number, but give it to me again anyway just to make sure." I still chuckle about it, even as I'm writing this. Thought I would pass it on :-)
Come back now and then and see what I'm up to.

Morning Thought

Good morning to whoever (or is it whomever?) may stop by. Woke up today and the thought hit me.....I have a blog! My very own blog! Cool!! OMG! I'm becoming a blogger!! Then anxiety set in as I sipped my morning coffee and thought..."people will eventually come by to see this blog (I hope) and I have little to offer at this time". Then I thought..."what the hay, it's only my second day of blogging, what do people expect?!" Haha! Well, off to work again cuz millions on welfare depend on me :-) Oh man, I almost forgot to add this. Just want readers/followers to know that I'm following the blog of "Lovestodream". Lovestodream is my wonderful wife, who (or is it whom?) is helping me with some of the technical details of using this blog site (such as, how to I create a post, put in a picture, etc. LOL). Thanx for stopping by. Come back now and then to see what I'm up to.

Something to Share

Well, I made it through another day of work!! I've thought about this blog several times today...and pondered things like what I want to do with it, what I would like to accomplish with it (if anything), what kind of things I would write, what kind of content would I add, what kind of things I would share, etc. And I'm still not sure where I want to go with this. It seems that some people already know what they want to accomplish when they begin a blog, such as sharing crafts and craft ideas, sharing pictures or things relating to photography, and the like. But me?...have no idea at the moment. This is all new to me, so bear with me. I'm sure, in time, it will come to me (or maybe not Ha!).
Anyway, there is something that happened today that I wanted to share. I don't consider myself a "religious" person, but I do believe in God (enough said for now). Anyway, I was off work for 3 months recently due to surgery and had no vacation or sick leave time, so needless to say, things have been pretty tight financially. Well, long story short, I was down to my last few bucks today and still several days to payday...needed gas for the car and a few other things. Well, low and behold, I got a check for $100.00 in the mail from a game site where I had won the monthly lottery drawing (I'll post that site later). Now, some may say "chance" or "fate", but I believe that God, in His infinite wisdom, made that possible. And it's not so much the money, or the amount of money, or that it was even money at all, that makes this so incredible, but the TIMING. Just when I really needed it the most. I chose to share this because maybe you or someone you know may be encouraged by this. And I think it's only right to share it and not keep it to consider it shared! :-)
I guess this is for future readers/followers, since I don't have any at the moment. Kinda like writing to myself Hahaha!
Well, off to other things for now. Will add more "stuff" soon. Check in now and then to see what I'm up to.

Hello & Welcome

Hello there. Welcome to the blog "...Of Mortal Remains". More information and "stuff" will be added soon. For now, it's off to work. Hope you come back soon. Thanx for stopping by.
