I'm Trying

I'm really wanting to blog more right now, but where thoughts used to come to me regularly -- they're just not there. I mean, what's on my mind this morning is: "OK, I got dressed and made it to the office this morning." Not exactly exciting stuff. So I am kind of trying to force it right now.

The Mavericks are being thoroughly manhandled by the old men down south of here. Dampier is a sad situation. The guy looks like he ought to be able to have his way on the court. But he is a non-factor. Kidd looks his age right now. And Dirk? I REALLY like him, so don't get me wrong. Probably the best big-man shooter ever. But as I have said before, he is not the kind of guy you can ride to a championship.

Again, I am trying to force it right now. Truth be known, after about 3 minutes of watching, my mind has left the building.

I can't remember if I have mentioned that Beverly and I are gearing up for a trip to Scotland in three weeks. We will be traveling with some friends of ours from Decatur (also named Ross, but no relation other than in Christ). We will locate my grandfather's childhood home in Inverness, stay on the Isle of Skye, visit castles and walk St. Andrews. We will spend a couple of days in London, as well. Our friends were a married truck-driving team, and they have driven in Scotland before. So we will travel the country by car.

Can't wait!

I look forward to reading more posts.

One word comes to mind when I think of Scotland. "FREEDOM" (Braveheart ... get it?)

I'm guessing a few people in your office think it's good that you managed to remember to get dressed.

I understand the lack of thoughts for blogging. I go through them at times and have struggled more with it lately. I've now stooped to stealing material from other people to post but I think it's good stuff and says some things that are on my heart better than I can say them now.

I trust your trip will be a good time and a good diversion for both of you and I look forward to hearing stories when you get back. I think you need to sneak a putter on the course with you.

I love when you write, Rick! I am also very glad you and Beverly will get to experience Scotland. My mom and I only spent one day in Edinborough in June of 2001 for my graduation trip to England. It was fabulous!

I'm jealous of your Scotland trip.

I am so excited that you and Bev are going to Scotland. I pray that this trip is somehow healing for your both. Karen
