todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I accept my maturing mind and the "old ways" that I think
for patience with my slow progress
that I'm in a pretty good place right now
that I have always liked to follow the rules.
for my 10 seasons as a baseball umpire (see above)
I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
