Found myself checked into a Kaufman County hospital under the Texas Presterian chain of hospitals yesterday afternoon. It is pemounia. Hopefully in five days I hope I will be home again. It takes something like this to realize that one is destructable.

There are crosses
across the plains
of my life.
a past love
Memories of them
will always be with me.
The path of coming death
do I also walk.
Thank you Jesus
for rendering the love
of these souls
on the path
that I walk.
I know we shall
all met again
in the glory
in the joy
before us all.

Within the seeds of humor from this Saturday Night Live beginning program (click link below this commentary; be patient, the video takes about three minutes to download) lies the truth. That truth is that President Obama has done more than any one individual in the history of the United States in destroying the very foundations of what made the United States the greatest free nation on the planet.
There is only one hope and prayer for the United States of America. That hope and prayer is that our country will have the strength and courage to remove President Obama from office as President of the United States.

I awoke this morning with a spirit of bitter lonilness upon me.
It was a chill of my heart I could not explain.
It was a reality check that came upon me.
A realization that the joys of my youth would never be recaptured again.
I would not know the beauty of a kiss in youthful passion again.
That feeling of oneness with another that binds us to happiness.
Is it the creeping years that makes me feel such this day.
Hard as I try to reach back to other times when I felt such
I come up with hollow hands.
Let this day pass quickly.
I am afraid there will many more like this.
Still I pray and hope
sparks of the past
will return again tomorrow
to give me another chance at happiness.
“A Dream Moving Forward in an East Texas’ Vineyard” copyright 2015, John J. Rigo, co-owner of Stewart-Rigo Winery

Our vineyard project was moving along beautifully on February 20th, 2015, prior to the great rains we have received since then in the Cedar Creek Lake area of East Texas with the placement of trellises for our future vineyard. A neighbor came into the property “Curiousity Seeking” that afternoon. He is the owner of ten acres in the area.
The neighbor’s comment on entering our open security gate was, “The community is in an uproar as to what is going on here!” I guess he and his friends never seen the beginnings of a vineyard before Lol. When it comes to bottled wine, have no doubt they never drank any wine above “Thunderbird.”
Another great lesson learned, “the old neighbor helping neighbors is a thing of the past in the country these days.” If you fall asleep at the wheel you will quickly find your wallet weighing less with advice from these folks!
