thanksgiving update

Happy Thanksgiving.

I am grateful for all the wonderful friends I have all over the world. I am grateful I married the love of my life, the girl of my dreams and we are still here.

I hope to travel to SE Asia over the winter, back to the States in the summer with hopefully a trip to Portland, Seattle and Alaska – been to 49 out of 50 states, Alaska is my last one.

This week I am binge watching some westerns I got from the Yongsan Library. The library will move to Camp Humphreys next summer but until then it is nice to have.
I saw Homesman with Tommy Lee Jones and Hillary Swain. Not bad but would have preferred a happier ending. Next up are Young Guns, Lonesome Dove Church, Doc holidays Revenge, Slow West, and 3:10 to Yuma (which I had seen earlier). And then I will watch some SF – The Postman, Prometheus Trap, Earth’s Final hours and finally the horror movie, “Get Out.”
Also got some great tunes which I downloaded for my listening pleasure.
Rod Stewart classics

Have you ever seen the rain
fool around and fell in love
I’ll stand by you
still the same
it’s a heart ache
day after day
missing you
Father and son
best of my life
if not for you
Love hurts
everything I own
crazy love
