Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. Harvey S. Firestone

The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in persons with whom you are going to spend most of your waking hours.

Some people get spiritual because they see the light and some people get spiritual because they feel the heat!

How do you know if you're truly a servant? See how you react the next time someone treats you like one.

About Me

I'm a bald, overweight, out of shape kind of guy. Don't go to the gym, probably never will. Diagnosed with Diabetes about two years ago. I keep it in check with medicine and better eating habits. Eating is a hobby of mine so I struggle daily with that. I am married to a wonderful woman, and my best friend. We both have both been married previously and have children from those marriages. She has three boys, and I have two girls. We have two beautiful grandchildren, both girls.
We like weekends at the lake, camping, riding motorcycles, about anything football and...........NASCAR. Yep NASCAR. There is more to it than going around in circles and turning left, but we will get into that later.
I work in the Oil and gas Industry here in Wise County, commonly known as the Barnett Shale. For the most part I work long hours and some weekends. Work is pretty steady right now so things are good.
My goal here is to provide you with a daily outlook into my thoughts and share with you some pictures of life along the way. I had a random thoughts section in another Blog forum, but since that venue is already taken around these parts, I will call mine "From The Corner Of My Mind".
My spelling and grammar will not always be perfect and the pictures will not all be original. I'm pretty sure that I won't always be able to captivate your attention like Crazy Texas Mommy or come up with breaking news like Liberally Lean, or entertain you with graphic expression like Silicone Alley,but I will be just "Around The Corner".
