Heading Home

I'm on my way home from Tampa this evening. I had another good visit with Joe and the fam today. I had an uncle-y (I know that's not a word Jake) talk with Joe's two sons Jake and Joe Joe. Both boys are extremely smart, and I think they can do remarkable things with their lives.
Neither of them are currently in school so I had to get after them a little. As the old saying goes, "The more you learn, the more you earn." Joe Joe is good with numbers and is interested in business. Jake is a natural born inventor. I have high hopes for them both.
I had work to do last night so I decided to get a hotel room with wireless connectivity. I managed to do some writing and attend to some urgent things at work.
This morning I swung by Joe's house to pick up Jake and his girlfriend Tina. We headed down to the local Hardee's for some gravy and biscuit. There's nothing like a cathead biscuit and gravy to shut folks up. All you could hear was a little grunting now and then.
It was a good visit and I'm glad I spent time with my old cuz. I know he has a tough road ahead so please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
