The Void

A star forming region in the Large Magellanic Cloud, perhaps the closest Galaxy to Earth's Milky Way.

As you can see, there is a lot going on in that photo. Magnificent isn't it?

The wonders of Creation laid out for us to see.

Unfortunately, the Tiny Cranial Cloud (the post forming region in my brain) is devoid of any activity this AM.

Believe me, I thought long and hard (well, okay, long) about what to write about last night and went to bed with nada, bupkis, rien.
Yup, Nothing. A big, fat zero.

It's as if a great void has formed between my ears and all rational thought has collapsed to a singularity. A very dense singularity.

Who knows, maybe something will spring forth later today. Until then, read those folks over along the starboard rail (the sidebar for you non-nautical types).

Continued prayers for my blog-buddy, mentor and fellow Air Force Master Sergeant Buck, the Exile in Portales. He's in the hospital and it's not good.

Keep him in mind, stop by his place and leave a note. His sons are with him and will let us know as things happen. Prayers for them too. Buck raised a couple of good lads there.

Sarge, out.


  1. I was saddened to hear about Buck's bad turn. He's one hell of a nice guy - one of my biggest supporters - and I'll be putting up my own request for prayers later this morning.

    1. If it wasn't for Buck I wouldn't enjoy blogging as much as I do.

    2. Buck's been in my thoughts since his last post.
      It's good that his boys are with him.
      It's good, too, that you enjoy blogging... because many of us enjoy your blog.

    3. Same here Skip, I pray and I worry. Buck is in my thoughts constantly.

      (And thanks!)

  2. The Void

    An apt title.
    It isn't empty.
    It just doesn't have what we're seeking.
    It seems the older we get the less there is.
    Unless we realize that it must come from within.

  3. Aw man, sorry to hear about Buck. Prayers in progress. I'll see if I can help you out with a tiny cranial cloud offset.

    1. Still no news regarding Buck.

      Ooh, ooh, that last is music to my ears!

  4. Sending prayers for Buck. He's on my "must-read" list...

  5. Will do, thoughts and prayers sent!


Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
Can't be nice, go somewhere else...
