2016 is one of those years that seemed to defy common sense and logic. On a societal level, we devolved. A populist wave of “Go F#@& yourself” swept the country like never before thanks to an unchecked political agenda and a growing apathy towards others.
At this point it’s more probable that Donald Trump is either going to win the national election, or the tie will go to the House of Representatives to pick the winner, which most likely would be a Trump win as well.
The House and Senate both appear to be a safe keep for the Republican Party also tonight.
There’s a photo I took of my son as a young kid, red sweater, red backdrop, laughing, framed on my living room console table. Last week I noticed a small sliver of yellow paper sticking out of where you put the photo in, so I opened it. Behind the photo was $50 and a post-it note from my mom that simply read “I love you son”.
My friend Jimmy flew to Oklahoma to join Nathan and I on the summer road trip to Colorado this year. It was kind of Amazing. Nathan was less of a son and more like “one of the guys” on this trip, despite his tempered pain of a kidney stone.
