The Atlantic Ocean on day 743 in Puerto Rico

The Atlantic Ocean on day 743 in Puerto Rico

Good morning friends.

Sammy and I wanted to swing by and give everyone a little boost to their Sunday Funday.

Anytime you’re driving along the shoreline, pull over and get a picture. We’re in the digital age now. You can’t just drive by the ocean and Not get a picture. That’s crazy talk.

In case anyone struggled with Geography in high school like I did, this body of water behind us is “The Atlantic Ocean”

When I arrived in Puerto Rico on January 11th, 2015, I can’t really say I knew that, lol. Well now I do know. Today is day 743 in Puerto Rico by the way.

I love Sunday mornings. It’s my favorite day of the week. It’s such a newspaper and coffee kind of morning.

It’s the one day we let imagination in the door and back into our lives. On Sundays, we get to be us again. The people we set out to be from the very beginning.

I always wanted to be the guy that was 47 years old standing in front of the Atlantic Ocean holding a 10 pound Pomeranian.

Who did you want to be ?

Happy New Year – 2017

Happy New Year 2017

Good evening friends.

Thank you for stopping by. It’s always a privilege connecting with people from all over the world. It wasn’t too long ago that we only knew our neighbors on our streets, or the cul de sacs we lived on.

Today, the world is my neighborhood. Said another way, I can say hello to people in Australia, Germany, the Philippines and Brazil faster than I can cross the street and say “Good Morning” to my neighbors here in Puerto Rico.

I want to start out with a fun statistic, then some Baby Step New Year’s Resolutions for 2017, and then prayers for our fallen heroes and loved ones this year.  Continue reading

Merry Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas - 2016

Merry Christmas friends.

Christmas is always a special day as we know. But being this year it falls on Sunday Funday, makes is that much sweeter. We call that a Win Win. We like those.

There’s a lot of love out here today. We can feel it right through our computers and devices.

The holidays can be a great time of year for many and they can also can be a lonely time for others. If you find yourself in the latter, reach out and connect with somebody today. Sometimes just hearing a few key words and phrases from someone can change a person’s perspective in an instant.

2016 has been a topsy turvy year to say the least. The major positive that supersedes all the trials and tribulations, has been all the new friendships made.

Have a Merry Christmas and a happy Sunday Funday.

Sammy the Pomeranian Reindeer

Sammy is a Part Time Christmas Reindeer

Good morning friends.

Sammy is heading to North Pole as you can see. Each Christmas Santa Claus needs extra reindeer to ensure that all gifts are received around the world.
Several years ago, Sammy was fortunate enough to be selected as one of Santa’s part time reindeer.

Now truth be told, Santa Claus does not know that Sammy is a 10 pound Pomeranian. As you can see here, we have applied some Toy antlers to his head.

The good news is that Santa Claus has a “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” policy for his employees, reindeer included.

Santa Claus actually considers Sammy one of his best part time Reindeer. This will be Sammy’s 4th season working in the North Pole.
OK friends, Sammy is preparing for take-off. We’ll catch up with you later.

Have a great day friends.

Poppy Rocky Tuesday on November 29th, 2016

Poppy Rocky Tuesday on November 29th, 2016

Good morning friends.

Happy Poppy Rocky Tuesday. A day filled with Hope and Possibilities. Remember, if the Pops and Rocky can make it, anyone can.

Life had the decks really stacked against Poppy and Rocky. The odds were almost zero for them having a good life. But those odds pulled through. And they have a great life and they’ve completed Sammy & Family’s family.

Now we stand strong as a unit, as a pack of wolves. Anything can happen on any given day. We just have to stay focused and keep an opened mind and heart. From there, the universe will show us the way.

Day 689 here in Puerto Rico and day 377 since we rescued Rocky. Just 11 days ago was Rocky’s one year anniversary with us. We think that puts him at 2 years old now.

Have a great Tuesday.

Sundays are a Newspaper and Coffee kind of morning

Newspaper and Coffee

Sundays are such a newspaper and coffee kind of morning. Sunday is our favorite morning of the week. Monday through Friday it’s work work work. On Saturdays, we catch up on personal responsibilities.

But on Sundays, we let imagination in the door and back into our lives. On Sunday’s, we get to be us again. The people we set out to be from the very beginning.

Happy Sunday Funday.
