 "Here Without You"

A hundred days have made me older
Since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
And I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

I'm here without you, baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight it's only you and me

The miles just keep rollin'
As the people weave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated
But I hope that it gets better as we go

I'm here without you, baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, girl, its only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard but it won't take away my love
And when the last one falls
When it's all said and done
It gets hard but it wont take away my love

I'm here without you, baby
But you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby
And I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby
But you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, girl, its only you and me

 '3 Doors Down'


And I miss you every day, my sweet lady.


I promise I will get back to posting soon. Right now it's just good days and bad days.

So the babies are gone.

About three days ago I noticed the cardinals nest was empty. I don't think those babies grew up that fast, so I fear that one of our many chicken snakes may have been their demise. I have actually witnessed this one  time with a pair of house wrens. It was gut wrenching to watch mom and dad try to get the snake out of the nest. Once again I fear the same played out here. C'est la vie.

Just when I reach the age where I thought nothing can surprise me and nothing will ever blow my mind again. Here comes Chris Hadfield, commander of the International Space Station with Space Oddity. Damn good cover,too. I bet David Bowie never thought he would see this.

Please welcome the twins.

The were born last night in a lightning and rainstorm that lasted most of the night. Mom and Dad are taking very good care of them as they should. We could all learn some lessons from this.



They are about two feet away from my bedroom. Window and they actually woke me up with their squeaking.

Well they did manage to bury his ass in American soil, after all.

I have no need to comment  if you know me.

My daughter is so good to me. Dewberry cobbler made with dewberries from my yard. It was still warm and the vanilla ice cream melted before I finished the bowl. God bless Texas!
 

Met a friend I never know'd,

Red light green light 'round the town,
I found a penny on the ground
Met a friend I never know'd,
walkin' down ol' Rocky Road.

Don't know why this old Peter Paul and Mary song came to mind when I opened my bedroom blinds and saw her sitting on her nest. I do say good morning to her every day. I'll hate to see her leav
e. But life moves on.

I'm gonna do my best to hook up with Greylocke and spend some time at the NRA convention. I sure need some time away from home.
