Love What You Do

It seems our motto has become Do What You Love, Love What You Do. We wrote a song by that title and we put it on our current CD we recorded late last year.
Our friend Steve is one of the best at picking out the perfect Christmas and Birthday presents.
He found this wall-hanging somewhere and bought it for Jilda and me for Christmas.
It's a beautiful gift and when we cleaned off the screened porch, we found the perfect place to hang it.
I wish I were better at selecting personal gifts. Jilda is a master, but if left up to me, I wind up buying practical things like guitar strings, or perhaps a can of mace.
Jilda snapped this photo of me this past week when I was out there writing.
Speaking of writing, I got a note from today. They want to use the column I wrote about our 40th Anniversary for their online publications. is The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times, The Mobile Press Register, which pretty much blankets the state of Alabama.
I'm not sure if anyone will read it, but I'm excited to get the additional exposure.
Tomorrow is Friday and I'll be working down at the cemetery where my folks are buried. There's nothing like the sound of an angry weed eater first thing in the morning.


  1. That is awesome about your column being put out there... It's so wonderful as very few people last 40 years these days and are happy about it... Have a great day :)

  2. Exposure is good! Glad to hear it, There is always the chance more can come from it.

  3. Just let me know where I could find the column :) I will read it for sure!

  4. How would you react if I told you there’s a job where you have to work 24/7? Well, there’s already someone who holds this position.mothers day

  5. Exposure is good lol
    Doing what you love is important
    Sometimes the best gift in life is your time.
    and (sigh) yes the grass. Mowing is a part of life.
    Keeping life organized and clean.

  6. "perhaps a can of mace." Really? Oh, you romantic soul, you!

    There is something rewarding to hear weeds bite the dust.

  7. I love your sign. I think that the world a happier place if we all love what we did and did what we love.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Congratulations. When the AP picked me up, I thought I'd die from sheer joy. Nice photo of you, you handsome old man (be sure to tell Jilda I said so).


  9. Congratulations on the note from like a great opportunity for you! Great quote, too! It's actually one of my favorites!
