Starting Fires

I sat and pondered for about an hour last night for today's Whatever Wednesday topic, which is, "What Decade Would You Rather Live in?"  Or something like that.  And as I lay in my bed, legs getting progressivly more sore from horse back riding, all I could think of was, "Just not one where a horse is my only mode of transportation."  And I confirm that thought this morning as I can barely walk.

yep.

I hope you guys have an awesome 4th tomorrow and enjoying some much needed time off work.  I will be with all forms of family for the rest of the week.  Paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming and anything else that involves me being in water and gettin' tan.

Be safe. Don't start any fires.
Unless you're with Billy Joel, then you're pretty obligated.
We all know he started the fire.

  4. Also, we should also stay away from Jennifer Hudson. She has that song, you know.

    I could see you being a total hoot in the 70's.
