30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 18


I would agree or disagree that high school is/was the time of my life… Because…

Hopefully I still have so much more time left to live. Before I get on with the response I want to let you know what I was just doing. I was outside using a new app I just purchased called Night Sky. With it I was able to see and identify four planets tonight. Venus is one of them and is the brightest object in the night sky. It is amazingly bright. I also saw Mars and Saturn. Earlier in the evening Jupiter was still visible but I did not get the chance to see it.

If you get the opportunity tomorrow night just look up in the Western sky and take a look at Venus. If you’ve never seen it, you should take the time to do so especially since one of the 30 questions dealt with the mysteries of the universe. Admittedly not everyone is interested in astronomy but we are talking about a planet here.


Jupiter is seen below the horizon. Anything above the ‘W’ is visible above the horizon.

Back to high school. While I will agree that I did have some wonderful times in school and have made some life long friendships, I think I have the best part of my life ahead of me. In fact I would dread life knowing that my best times were behind me. Here’s looking at you, future!

30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 14


Because my parents never found out, I remember getting away with __________ as a teenager…

A whole lot as a teenager. I wish I could end it there because some how the past seems to haunt me, but it is my own fault. When I was a teen I was what is commonly known in today’s vernacular as a sexual predator. I was a voyeur, a pervert, a peeping (here’s the funny part), Tom. I used to spy on, photograph and otherwise watch my sister’s friends in all stages of undress (watch, photograph and record). Nothing I am proud of, but I can mention it here today because I am not that person. That is about as honest as anyone can get during these 30 days – or at least I hope nobody has anything worse to tell.

31 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Day 30

Day 30 — I wrote a letter to someone I really miss (do this). I mailed it to them (postal, not email) and this is what I wrote…

Well, I did mail the letter and so far have gotten no response. Without this Day 30 question I don’t think I would have written it so I am grateful for this question. Here it is. Started sometime in late March or early April and mailed out on May 20, 2011.

Dear Best Friend from Elementary right through to High School,

I realize we haven’t seen each other in almost twelve years. We are both married now and not to one another like half of the school predicted. People thought we were surgically attached to one another and refused to believe that we were just friends. Even my parents refused to believe we were not romantically involved. How funny is that now?

I’ve heard that you have several children now. Congratulations! I hope this letter does not cause you any problems with your husband. There is no need for him to be upset or jealous. I do hope this letter finds you in good health and good spirits. Why am I writing after all this time?

I want you to know that even though we haven’t kept in touch over the years I still think of you often and I’ll always treasure our unique friendship. We broke all the rules proving males and females can be just friends.

Just so you know, I’ve kept all your secrets safe and I know you’ve done the same. Continuing with full disclosure and complete honesty I need to let you know this letter came to you as the result of a post on my blog. I know you don’t like computers but I invite you to follow my blog. If anyone can find my blog without any information at all, it is you.

I miss you and still think of you as a great friend. Love you always.

Tom Baker
