Happy Valentine’s Day, dudes and dolls!

Been tough to get anything down here lately. Was a little under the weather, then had grown-up church and home improvement stuff to do all weekend. Couple all of that with an ever-dicey sleep regimen, and it’s BoWilliams.com that must suffer first.

I’m not sure I have anything of any length to say about the Trump administration yet. I’ve been encouraged by some of his decisions, but disheartened to see that fears about his day-to-day behavior and demeanor have, so far, proved reasonable. I mean, we were supposed to see moderation when he secured the nomination, and then in the campaign proper. Didn’t really happen either time.

So should we be surprised that it hasn’t in the White House? Just who’s the dumbass here? How many times are we going to look for the GAIN and SQUELCH knobs on this guy, only to find the same old VOLUME knob that starts at about 6?

What else? We’re firmly in the middle of my annual dark period—after the Super Bowl but before the first IndyCar race. I’ll probably get too excited about the Daytona 500 because I’ll be desperate.

Still working a sociocultural post, though now I’m considering whether it might be a post series. It’s practically guaranteed to make people mad, so I want to get it right.

Back soon with better. Thank you for reading BoWilliams.com.

I’m headed back to work in about eight hours.

Lea’s van is home from the body shop, and our home’s new HVAC system is working marvelously. I am thankful for both of these things.

I will soon replace most of the guest/boys’ bathroom because of a long-undetected leak that has caused significant damage. I am working on recasting this initial sadness as being thankful for this opportunity to learn new skills.

(I told Lea this afternoon it was like God was in my ear saying “So you were serious about Me helping you to be more philosophical, right?”)

There were two things I specifically wanted to do with the Christmas break. I was going to pick my guitar back up. And, I was going to resume reading for pleasure much more regularly than I have been. I didn’t do either one.

I’m going to have to figure out how to spend the necessary bandwidth to maintain my lifestyle and still have enough left over for right-brained pleasures.

Even if that lifestyle maintenance has been particularly heavy for the past couple of months, it never goes away. There’s always something. Perhaps too many easy months have made me soft.

I did notice, driving between Home Depot and Lowe’s in Madison today, that our new movie theater is coming along nicely.

Just climbed out of the bathroom with the family and the dog. Wow. We haven’t done that since the boys got all spindly. (And kudos to everyone for being reasonably sweet-smelling.) So we went from no significant rain for seven months to a line of severe thunderstorms with embedded tornadoes. It’s not over as I […]
