You Never Know When Something . . .

Might Happen.

Not much of a blog today because I’ve been under the weather since last night with a really bad cough, a sore throat (from the coughing), and a stuffy head. But strangely enough, no fever or runny noise. So I don’t know what it is.

First off I thought I’d post Landon’s latest project. It was to build a Gingerbread House. But never one to tow the party line, Landon built a Gingerbread . . .

Landon's Gingerbread Igloo at School


Certainly looks tasty.

You probably read about the lady in NYC who was walking down the street and was killed by piece of building façade falling on her.


When I saw the first story, it just mentioned where her office was, where she left from when she was killed. I knew from the address that it was not too far from our hotel. But it sent a shiver down my spine when this evening I saw the address of the building where she was killed.

Jan and I had walked down that very street, on that very side, Tuesday morning last morning last week, before we left for home Tuesday afternoon. We had been walking around the Times Square area doing some last minute shopping, ending up on that street as we walked back toward our hotel.

As I’ve told Jan a number of times, you never know what’s around the next corner.

Like a guy killed inside an In-N-Out burger in Utah when a driver hit the gas instead of the brake and drove through the side of restaurant.

Of course you could also be killed by a foul ball at Dodger Stadium.

Or closer to home, being killed when a jet engine explodes on your Southwest Airlines flight and pierces the fuselage, sucking you part way out of the plane, and killing you.

You just never know.

So don’t put off until tomorrow something you really want to do.

You may not make it until tomorrow. Or even tonight.
