New Details On “The Next Chapter”

For eight months now, I’ve shared a few things here and there about changes that were being set into play.

A year ago, as I was preparing to head off to Bangkok, Thailand, I hoped the mysticism of the Far East would answer a few questions for me.


In my June 2019 blog, “I Need to Write My Next Chapter”, I concluded with this, “I’ll take a gamble on life again!”


At that time, I was very seriously thinking of giving up my career as a television meteorologist and moving to Las Vegas!

Later in June, I posted another subtle hint with this photo and the caption of “Future” — a new theme!!!


Well, I guess that post wasn’t as subtle as I thought. 🙂  Some of my dear friends across the miles quickly caught on to the hint.

And, Connie sent me this private message!


Ha!  I even used cactus stamps for my cards this past Christmas! 🙂

Well, I’m only telling you this now because I’ve changed course and moving to Las Vegas is no longer on the table — for now.

However, what I wrote in my November 2019 blog, “The ‘Next Chapter’ Is Still Being Written”, is still true and it’s getting closer:  “I can’t wait to find something fun to pay bills that’ll allow me more time to live, meet people (friends or that “someone special”), and be a great dad to #Pug2020!”

Here’s the link to that full blog:

And, the link for the first one from last June:

I hope you stick around for the details!

You know they’re coming soon because Spring 2020 is getting closer every day!

    Anthony, It is important for you to enjoy your work. Life is too short not to. You are definitely a people person (no pun intended), so I know that you will find the spot for you in the middle of the crowd.

    I can see you teaching, writing books or blogs, or even something to do with food. You do all of them so well.

    I wish you the best in every day of your life. You are a rich man with the love and friends that you have. Can’t wait for Pug2020. I am anxious to see pictures of the baby!

    Sending love.


    • Connie,

      Thank you very much.

      I’m very excited that living is back in my future. I want to have a schedule, while grueling, will allow me a chance to do things again.

      Nighttime work is for the birds. I never got used to it.

      Take care and enjoy your upcoming spring and summer.
