Remember RKDeem…You’re Making Progress

The blog moves into the third year of existence.  We’ve seen a lot of ups and downs, but as Rudyard Kipling said in the poem, If…:
 
“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;”
 
Here are some little flags on the progress timeline as reported by the blog:
 
Winston holding a fishing rod for the first time (he was six months old):
 
Climbing Mount Minsi on the Delaware Water Gap with Jaclyn & Winston:
 
Vacations:
Winston Displaying His Incredible Climbing Ability At An Early Age:
 
Winston Making a Huge Mess:
 
Getting Laid Off By Torre Lazur McCann:
 
Dalia Was Born:
 
Winston’s First Solo Sled Ride – Me Chasing After Him:
Got Laid Off Again:
 
And getting hired as a contractor by the pharmaceutical company who fired my agency:
 
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” – Winston Churchill, the great embodiment of the Bulldog spirit
 
There’s a lot of stuff in between those entries, lots of goofy and entertaining posts, lots of beautiful pics of my wife and kids, lots of little setbacks and little victories, but on the whole, I can look back and see progress.  Progress is just a series of decisions based on the “convictions of honor and good sense”, the money, the house, the jobs & responsibilities will be the byproduct for which I am not concerned. 
 
Thank you for reading, the blog will continue to document the progress and here’s a glimpse of what’s to come:
1.  Tomorrow I head to Kansas City
2.  Family vacation to the 1,000 Islands in the end of August
3.  Jac and I have 3 year anniversary on Sept. 22
4.  Dalia turns 1 on Nov. 7
5.  Winston turns 3 on Jan. 4 – I am really looking forward to this party, he loves opening presents and loves toys, this will be the “funnest” birthday ever
 
 
I talking bout Progress, not a game, not a game, PROGRESS.
