Can your little kid come out to play?
   I had been working particularly long, intensive hours for several weeks in a row.  I was tired beyond what a good night’s sleep can recover.  So I decided it was time to invite “little Joey,” my inner child, out to play to keep me from becoming a dull boy.
   Now “little Joey” is always ready to come out to play.  This particular day I decided to make a list of fun things I did when I was a kid and do some of them.  So I wrote my list and it went something like this:
1. Go fishing.
2. Walk a dog.
3. Hang on monkey bars.
4. Skip rocks across a pond.
5.  Kick a can.
6.  Catch a frog.
   That day, I decided to walk our yellow Lab, Jake, and not only did we walk, but we wrestled around in the backyard and threw the ball and played with the water hose.  It was great!
So how often does your inner child get to come out and play?  You were created to do something besides work all the time; to play and enjoy the world around you, too.  So invite your little kid to come out and play as you listen to life and Work Positive today!

   Even though it’s only August, the deer hunters are getting prepared for another season. While it may be a few weeks until the season actually opens, there is much to do in order to be ready for opening day – especially if you hunt with bow and arrow. Right now I’m checking trail cameras, hanging tree stands and trying to figure out where the deer are likely to be early in the season. And it is not always where one might think.

   I am reminded of an Alabama hunt several years ago. I was with a friend on a piece of property that was owned by a rancher who not only raised cattle but managed for quality deer. It really was a beautiful place and just riding around on it caused me to get extremely excited about the possibilities.
