The first of May is a benchmark for me. May is the start of really nice weather for the beach, there is always a light breeze and a lot of sunny days. Everything is blooming and green.
It seems that every weekend in May has some kind of festival or group activity that I like to attend, especially the Memorial Day Weekend, which is the unofficial start of summer.

My mother-in-law is the type of woman that can and will find a fault with everything and everyone, I can only take her in small doses and I’m so glad that her daughter, my wife, is nothing like her in that respect. My in-laws dropped by today on their way back from seeing a cousin’s vocal performance that was a big to-do for hundreds of kids in the tri state area. Four hours of sitting and listening to various songs and singers with only one short Intermission really was over doing, if you ask me, but of course no one did.
During the entire 4 long and boring hours the elation lighting was blinding my in-laws, and numerous others, for the majority of the lengthy performances and for some reason beyond any of us, my mother-in-law didn’t get up and complain until the entire performance was done and over with. I have to give her credit, because after 15 minutes of a glaring light in face would have sent me right over the edge and out of my seat trying to find someone to take care of the situation.
To make matters worse my in-laws only recognized 4 songs that were song the entire time.
She It just boggles my mind.

One thing that is really neat about working in a large office is that I have a lot of friends. There always seems to be something going on and new things to hear about. My friend Bob was telling me about how he and his family had spent their summer vacation at an Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotel. He said they had a great time and told me more about it.
Bob has traveled to many places in his life. When it comes to finding the best places to go, I trust his judgment. When he said that Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Hotels were the place to be, I believed him. Bob liked the fact that the service was great and that the view of the ocean was so nice.
Bob also told me about the great time that the kids had. They went to play on the shores of the ocean and enjoyed the sunny weather. Bob was able to get in a round of golf at one of the local courses and his wife caught up on her shopping. Bob had a serious look on his face when he told me that a great vacation could be found at a Myrtle Beach Hotel. I believe everything he said was true and I am now thinking about taking my family on a trip to Myrtle Beach.

The family is making plans to celebrate my father’s 65th birthday come May. It promises to be a shindig and I look forward to being there, seeing all the family that are invited and that darn well better show up along with numerous family friends that we have gotten to know and love throughout the years.
People will be coming from all over the country, even a few that are overseas are expected to make an appearance, it should be a fabulous time for all that attend. The only problem that I see is finding the perfect gift to give to my Dad on his special day. The only thing that I can come up with is finding something boat/fishing related.
Dad has always loved boats, fishing is his passion, but he has all the fishing equipment that he could ever need or want to keep him happy with all that. My sister has suggested that we kids all go in together and get him some of the new HID Go lights for his favorite fishing boat. He has been really talking it up about these Go lights all year and she has found a good deal on them online. If I can’t come up with any other idea’s in the next month or so I guess I’ll go ahead to commit to them, I know he will enjoy them and all, it’s just that I really wanted to do something on my own this year for some wacky reason.

As I have mentioned before, my wife is very talented with her imagination and with her hands. She lives and breathes for her recycled arts and crafts that she has such a knack with. She enjoys turning “one person’s trash into somebody else’s treasurer” as the old saying goes. While I’m on the Internet she is usually right in the next room working on her numerous projects, which works out quite well for both of us.
She uses a lot of her crafts for the various and numerous gift giving occasions that come each and every year. Right now she is working on how to turn a piece of wood and a handful of finger machine handles into a ring holder, or to hold and display necklaces or bracelets, something that a lot of people enjoy as a gift. A gift that was hand made, nice looking and useful, in my eyes are the best gifts ever.
Last year she put a lot of her recycled arts and crafts online that she enjoys sharing with friends and family as well as Face Book and lord knows where else. We have learned to check with Mom before throwing certain items that she might want or need, it just might be just what she was looking for.
