Bowling – Old Wolves and Young Foxes … took my son Kevin bowling today.
Had been wanting to bowl for several days.
My youngest son Kevin and I have occasionally been going to the Dale City AMF lanes, a wonderful family place to hang out for all ages.
My first game today was outstanding … then I had a DNA rejuvenation beverage and my score went down in subsequent games … even though my spirits were right where they should be … was feeling happy, happy, happy.
Our last game finishing with the fox outsmarting and outscoring the old wolf.
I have adopted a unique Coat of Arms for my own Golden family. My design incorporates the colors of the Golding family of Essex and Kent, England, and what are essentially the colors embraced by many Goldings, Goldens and Gouldings around the world.
The chevron represents a house roof in heraldry, a symbol of family and a willingness to extend protection to those that stand with me.
Colors are gold (Generosity) and red (Military Fortitude & Magnanimity).
The stag is representative of Peace & Harmony. Much of my life has been in service to country, and I am a retired U.S. Army soldier, father of a military member, and descendent of many ancestors who have served in the Armed Forces since the earliest years of American history. That said, Blessed are the peacemakers, the teachers, those that work to avoid conflict and undue hardship among their fellow citizens. Much of my life has been also given to volunteerism and working within my community. Make peace not war. Be prepared for war and willing to commit to victory.

Am most happy to be in a dog-friendly company. Ginger is my constant companion, and has been since May 2006.
Photo by Elaine Carmack — one of the VERY few people in the world that Ginger warmed up to almost immediately and allowed to pet her. Ginger is a shepard dog and does not warm up quickly to people that are not one of her sheep.
