It's the Weekend!

It is going to be a full Friday!

I'm enjoying my coffee this morning while watching the UFC Weigh-ins for tomorrow morning's fights from the UK. I'll need to get a quick walk in before meeting a pastor friend for lunch and Chris and I have plans to meet friends for dinner. I suppose I should mow the lawn this afternoon ... or not. Chris is working tomorrow so there's always tomorrow for the lawn ... or Sunday ... or next week.

Ah well, I suppose I need to do it.

It looks to be another beautiful weekend here in the Ozarks. The weather will be hot, the sun will be bright and blocked by occasional clouds. It will be humid and there will be a light breeze.
Summer in the Ozarks.

Some of you may have noticed that I have not written much about the many controversial issues that have been in the news. One of the things that I have noticed in my own reading of blogs, news articles and social media posts is that I either agree with them or disagree with them. Few of them change my mind about anything. Fewer of them are written to even try.

Most of them share the writer's point of view. Many of them are based on irrelevant or incorrect information. For the most part, I rarely read them. And I expect that others are pretty much the same way. As the political cycle gets closer to the 2016 elections, I imagine that there will be more and more written about the buffoonery that will be taking place in that arena. I hope to avoid that, as well.

I'll be looking for positive stories to share. I want this to be a place of encouragement and positive energy. I sometimes struggle with the idea that I want to be a source of reliable information and correct some of the misinformation and outright lies that are being spread as truth and news. But the reality is that people will believe what they want to believe and those that are most sure of their opinions and most willing to argue for them are the people that I least desire to be around.

I don't want to be that guy.

Nothing more than that for today.
It's sunny and getting warmer out and there is a walk in my immediate future.
Enjoy your weekend!

Do it early or tomorrow. But enjoy the weekend. We'll go to a flea market Sat. and a late church Sun. And watch an old episode of The Closer. Have a nice weekend, John Hill!
