The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Mind and Heart In Conflict

Family, Life, pets, Love

I know the right thing to do but it feels like the wrong thing.  I asked the vet to check the results and they didn’t change.  My heart hurts as the time ticks down and I see my family member and know tomorrow she will not be around.  We have taken care of her for 18 years and in return she has given us so much love!  Time does not heal the heart breaks and another cat will never take her place.  She is special, she is loved.  She looks fine but we know that is not true.

Observations on So Called Friends Part 1

Conservatives, Culture, Ideology, Liberals, Life, Friendship, Facebook, Email

So as you know I am brutally honest and that is the way I have always been.  I don’t sugar coat things or walk on eggshells, I will however use tack to get my point across.  I backup my opinions with facts, figures and the truth.  This is not to say I am perfect or don’t make mistakes because I do.  I learn from them and grow.
