Hey guys, the retired guy is here and ready to talk to you about some things that are near and dear to my heart.  I feel really strong about supporting our local businesses in any way I can.  These men and women have said “No” to the corporate world, and “No” to the normal eight-hour day…and “Yes” to being their own boss and “Yes” to doing things their way and following the fricken American Dream…Oh yeah baby…I love these people and what they stand for.

So what say we get this party started because as you know I’m the retired guy, which tell you I’ve been around for some time and so has this business I going to tell you about in a moment.  This is a family owned business and I’ve known them for some time.  I know the kind of people they are…and they are good people…people I trust…and people that give so much more than they ask for, which by the way is an amazing trait of local businesses.

Now before I give you the name understand this company is not for everyone, but for those people who live within the greater Kansas City, Missouri area…well then listen up because I’m about to introduce you to an amazing company and has the ability to blow your socks off.

The name of the company is Asphalt Sealcoating KCMO and they have been around for over 50 years, each and every family member has learned every part of this business.  They’ve grown into a very large company that continues to help out every Joe…or Josephine…yeah we have to be somewhat politically correct because there are many women who are business owners and home owners and they deserve the credit just like the men.

This business started out working their asses off…just two brothers who wanted to do the best they could, but at the same time give the customers the best quality job and the money was really the third thing on their mind.  There are hundreds of businesses who follow, followed and are following these same rules and each one is learning or has learned this is by far the best way to build an amazing company that sits on the strongest of foundations.

All I asking for you to do if you live within the greater Kansas City Area and whether you need some help or you have a friend who needs some help with repairing, fixing, filling cracks, re-paving, tearing out or just a brand new construction give these guys a call and experience for yourself why they are voted the best asphalt sealcoating company in Kansas City.


Let me ask you a simple question…”if someone sets goals they constantly drive towards a chosen result. Is every goal achieved? Probably not, but the intention is to set high goals. If the goal is not attained, whatever falls short of achievement is much better than doing nothing at all. Also, along the pathway to attaining any goal are the experiences and emotions of happiness, fulfillment, success, joy, and a great sense of accomplishment.

I’d like to respond to the question of “is life fair” In my opinion I would have to say “Yes, in my mind life is fair”. I set goals; therefore I believe life is fair. I often remember words of encouragement like: W. Clement Stone, who said “what man can conceive and believe he can achieve”, in the bible is says “you will reap what you sow”, and Henry Ford also said “whether you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you are right”. I believe thoughts are very powerful things.

Most people have heard thoughts generate some kind of power, but to what extent. How much power do thoughts actually have, and is science there to back this up? Most importantly, how can we use this knowledge to create a successful life? Everything within the universe contains energy and scientific studies reveal thoughts are nothing more than vibrations of energy. Energy is neither good or bad it simply exists. Science proves nothing within the universe is solid; although it has to appearance of being solid it is purely energy and molecules vibrating. For example hold your hand in front of your face, and you think you see something solid.

Yet, if you had the ability to look closely at your hand through a very powerful microscope you see tiny molecules vibrating with empty space between them. If you could see further down inside these tiny molecules you would see pure energy. Scientists have verified thoughts can be measured. In the process of verification these thoughts were discovered they contain wave patterns of vibrations, and our thoughts are one of the most powerful forms of energy known to mankind. They have the ability to transform non-physical ideas into physical form.

It’s a well-known fact that energy vibrates at various speeds and frequencies. Things which vibrate at the same frequency will naturally attract to one another. In this attraction, one object will cause a vibration in the second object matching itself causing mutual vibrations to form into one larger vibration. Studies indicate that vibrating at a high frequency rate is positive in nature, while vibrating at a low frequency is negative in nature. Higher frequency allows feelings of good, which if goal oriented, cause an opening of possibilities to whatever you want, and a lower frequency tend to cause bad feelings, which translate into dampening our ambitions.

The higher your frequency, the more open you are to receiving the things you desire. While at the lower frequency, the closer you are to negative thoughts, which translate into attracting things maybe are not necessarily the things you want.

Think for a moment about driving on a remote desert highway and scanning the channels on your radio for music. Unless you’re tune into the right station on the right frequency you will not hear music. It doesn’t mean that the music is not out there broadcasting to other people; it just means you have not tuned your radio into that frequency. Once you do, your radio’s receiver has matched the exact frequency of the radio station’s transmitter and bam – you hear music.

It’s not that the music is good or bad, it’s simply music. This same principal applies to achieving whatever goal you want, or do not want, into your life. If you vibrate at higher frequencies you are feeling the good things in life and life is good. If you vibrate at lower frequencies you’re feeling the other side of life and it is not so good.

It’s also been proven that you’re the architect of your life, good or bad, fair or unfair. All of your problems r successes were created by you alone, and not by your partner, parents, or even your boss. It is critical you realize no one else is responsible for your present situation but you, and your perception of it. I know this is a hard concept to accept, as it was for me. However, once accepted a whole new world with unlimited possibilities open up.

Whatever you currently have within your life monetarily, or spiritually you have received from your past thoughts and actions. Therefore, each day is the beginning of a new life and you have the ability to change your life in any direction. Are you satisfied with the way things are going in your life at this moment? Great, keep doing the exact same thing tomorrow that you did today. If not, are you ready for a change? Are you ready to make a decision that will change your life forever? If so, please enjoy and experience how life is better than fair, it’s great.

There you have it…try it on for size…

Thanks Y’all,


I recently had the good fortune and immense pleasure of reading a fantastic book written by Andy Andrews. The story is all about David Ponder’s experiences as he travels through history meeting some of the most influential people of our times. First, David’s life experience so mimic’s many people who are encountering various issues in our world today.

David is an Executive at a firm; let’s just call it any corporation of today, who is trying to help the company from being taken over from a larger conglomerate. In which he was offered to take a severance, but opted to stay and help the company he so believed into stay afloat and ultimately stand proudly upon to two feet again.

David is married to Ellen and they have a twelve year old daughter Jenny.  What makes this story so real and valid in today’s society is that David one night after working late discovers himself out of a job, and stranded at the office as they reclaim his office credentials, and then like many of us, is walked from his office to the lobby of the company. From there he discovers they also need the keys to his company car stranding him there. Not only is David out of a job, but received no severance and is now forced to figure out how he is getting home.

David finds out attracting a Job at his age and at the income he warrants somewhat of a daunting task…go figure. The term experience is always used with young people trying to find employment, but there is a fine line between what experiences are needed, and realizing to much experience is a bad thing. David finds himself working at a hardware store for not much more than minimum wage, no health insurance, no pension plan, and driving a broken down two door Dodge colt.

Andy takes you through the thoughts of David, which I would guess are thoughts so many people have had as of late. Until one ill faded night as David has reach the end of his string, or was experiencing the events leading up to the preverbal “straw breaking the camel’s back” so to speak. David driving home one night just starts driving on the freeway missing the exit for his home and just continues to drive ominously through the night. David, who in somewhat of a daze is not aware as his car continues to go faster and faster pushing it to the limits. It’s dark and the road conditions mixed with the enormous speeds causes David to lose control…

The events occurring after this take David on what would be considered strange if not really weird trip into a place where he visits seven different people who themselves are in desperate times, but each one teaches David that we make decisions each and every day and those decisions are what sometimes makes or breaks us. David is given gifts from each stranger he meets until he has collected the seven gifts of decisions that determine personal success, which in itself is remarkable.

This book is barely 200 hundred pages, and it’s a very easy read as Andy captures your interest in somewhat of a spell to continue reading to discover more and more information and what happens with David. If you are experiencing issues in your life and are wondering what is next I urge you to run out and get yourself a copy, or if you have read it but it’s been awhile…just maybe it’s time to pick it up again. Check out “The Traveler’s Gift” by Andy Andrews you will be glad you did.

Thanks Y’all,


PS…I’ll make it easy to get the book on Amazon.

The Traveler’s Gift: Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success

WE may be a bit older but we still have some new tricks…You could easily be setting in this same position or possibly one of these…you are nearing retirement and some of the things you had planned earlier in your earlier years have not turned out quite like you expected for one reason or another. You are getting older and you know there are some things you wanted to do, but either you just haven’t saved enough money or more importantly you just have not taken the time to do them, or now you could be afraid to do it because you need to save some money just in case.

Social Security is a joke, and just maybe you feel a need to do more because you know there is more out there for you. I want you to understand that I believe you know you are here for a special reason, but just have not discovered what that reason is…right. I also want you to know I believe we were all given a gift and from Steve Harvey’s book he talks about those gifts as something we have, something we can do that we do well without much effort. Maybe you are setting pretty well, but you’re the type person who is always looking for ways to create more passive income, because we all know the best income is passive.

It really does not matter which one of these positions you’re setting in, what matters the most to understand where you are at and what you want, and even more importantly how do we get it. There are so many ways out there to get this information, but who do we trust…me…maybe…maybe not. What I can tell you is I identify with baby boomers simply because “I am one”. I think most of the Boomers out there know they are on this planet to be doing something and only a small number of us have found their destiny. It is entirely a personal choice to strive for all you want, but I believe it is possible to receive more than you can imagine.

My personal choice was to start up an online business, but what really important is not the product, what is important is to market yourself. Let people get to know you and your life. Is it hard?  Not extremely, but it is difficult. It’s just like building a business…your business, which is you. The only differences to me are; one where the profit margin is greater online because your expenses are minimal compared to opening up…how about we use…say a Pizza Shoppe. Second, you are able to create an income much faster do to the fact you are marketing to local businesses as opposed to everyone on “God’s Green Earth”.

Finally, it keeps your mind working and in retirement that is something that’s very important.  If I think about one thing all Boomers need to take in and commit to memory is to not being afraid of learning new things, and then going out and doing the things you’re learning, only to regroup learn more things and try them again…in actuality it’s life…it’s how we spent the last 40 years.

My hopes are to jog a few memories and create a bit of what some refer to as a reality check and if that happened then cool. I would like every baby boomer out there to get all they want out of life and more. If I can help…great, if someone else can help you that’s great also, just do not sit around wondering what you are going to do.

Sometime a reality check comes in handy….

Thanks Y’all,




Here is some information for those of you not sure if you are a baby boomer and to just allow you to see you could be one of us. First off, there are approximately 70 to 80 million baby boomers worldwide fitting into this category, and they were born between the years of 1946 and 1960 so some quick calculations means if you are between the ages of 70 or down to 56 as of this New Year 2016 you are in fact a baby boomer. We are a “kick in the pants” kind of generation with the spirit of whatever knocks us down we simply get up dust off and keep going.

Now unless you are…oh let’s say in the 5% of people and have already attained financial freedom you are probably wondering what the hell do I do now that I’m retired or thinking about retirement. If I was to guess, and only because I am a baby boomer, the position you are currently in was not and is not the position you held in your mind as your dream at this time in your life. There were a few of us who were not doing that bad until 911 hit, oh and then got to love what happened to the market when it took a pretty hard nose dive, or maybe it was when we felt the repercussions from that hit the housing market took.

Either way it really doesn’t matter if you were one of us who purchased your dream home or something like the equivalent of that only to be in a place where you lost it, are losing it, or are strapped trying to keep it. Yeah that sucks in so many ways, but hey that’s enough doom and gloom.  However, on the happier side of things it also means you lived through what I term “Memories Boomer Cherish”, so how about we lift those spirits and think about things like how we love the original “Rascals”, “The Three Stooges”, “Mickey Mouse Club”(original), “Bewitched”, “I Dream of Jennie” or who can ever forget laying on the floor watching “Bonanza” with little Joe and his whole family, and what about the “Flintstones, Bugs Bunny, Taz, The Road Runner and Wildly Coyote”.

Finally, if you are towards the top of the age group, or had older brothers and sisters, you may even remember “Buffalo Bob” and what the red and white checked shirt puppet called…yeah I thought you would know “It’s Howdy Dooty Time”. One last one is do you remember watching Star Trek, (the original one)?  I’m sure just mentioning one of those shows brings back some memories for you.  Anyway, I think those just triggered some memories…and speaking of trigger the Lone Ranger” was pretty cool also.

Some good memories but hey there’s more check out part two…

The “Secrets of Millionaire Mind” is a very good and informative book as it describes how in detail anyone can change their mind set and actually it goes even further into the steps to create the mind of a millionaire. I found the book to be extremely reader friendly in that, Mr. Eker was able to used vocabulary, or saying it another blunt way, he was able to dumb it down so I could easily relate to it.  It was remarkably amazing how effortlessly it flowed as he explained one ability into the next. His 17 principals are without a doubt in my opinion quite genuine, and dare I say, necessary if you take on the task of adapting a millionaire mind set for yourself.

I will try my best to consolidate what I found interesting and break them down as best I can in this short post.  Probably the most important and the first thing anyone who would like to create more money in their lives would be to get their mind into the right mind set. But they need to understand having the right mind set and thinking positive by using visualization and affirmations.  It was plain to me one would never get any further until they added the one and only ingredient, which is the catalyst to bond all of these elements and that is “ACTION”.

Yet, another component, which I feel Mr. Eker was quite adapt at hitting the nail on the preverbal head, and it’s a element that is missed by so many people as they pick up a new book and do their best to follow the instructions within each one of them. What is it you say? Hang on its coming…Mr. Eker does an excellent job of really putting it back onto oneself. He informs you, if your goal is truly to develop or if you undeniably want to imagine, create and have the millionaire mind set you must learn to live at the edge of your box, and every now and then…step outside?  To phrase it a bit differently you need to become a bit comfortable with being uncomfortable.

The “Millionaire Mind” does something that many lack and that is to strike upon, and which I’ve yet to find a book where such emphasis is place on something that was so highly enlighten to me. Mr. Eker talks in great detail about how to change your blueprint to place of acquiring that of a millionaire mind; however, he communicates his knowledge so eloquently that one cannot, and will not reach the millionaire status without the help of; or through the use of passive income. Passive income, or as some people call it, residual income, can be and has been achieved in many different ways, whether from real estate, sales, to direct marketing and so many others. Simply put, passive income is an income which is generated and continually pays sums of money to you and you have nothing to do with it other than your initial investment.

The way Mr. Eker combined the necessary building block in his book is quite phenomenal and I believe everyone should take advantage of the opportunity as his writing abilities and thought process he is very good at communicating.  Just to give you some of the things you will learn from his book if you so choose to are:

  • Identifying your current blueprint and your financial position.
  • Changing your blueprint for the financial freedom and success we all strive for.
  • Creating your persona to feeling different, confident and strong every day
  • Create a freedom where you no longer have to work ever again
  • Help the many people you’ve only dreamed of helping

I for one can expound on the notion it’s not easy learning to change how we look at our financial future, and to add to this dilemma is in forgetting all of the old stuff we’ve been programmed with from our parents, friends, family members, clergy, and so many others within our past. Take a moment and just try to recall all the things people have told you about yourself and the type of lifestyle you’ve been told you wanted. Forget everything anyone has ever told you about how to reach for those stars and make the kind of money your wanting…unless they are making the kind of money your wanting…my guess is they are not…so forget that advise.

I do take credit for putting this all together and even thought I didn’t do all the research in the process of discovering, experimenting and analyses, but you my friend…if you’re not now you will be, get the benefit of seeing it all neatly put together in sort of a DYI manual…You see…if you think about it…you may completely understand a particular concept, but to technically explain it so you…the one who is the most important person in all of this, would understand it…you know I’m sure what you hear much of the information…and mark my words…you know…like maybe highlight this paragraph…just kidding…but I’m sure you will be saying it or thinking to yourself…I get it.  By the end of this book it’s my intention you will not only know the reasons why things are as they are, but also why they are what they are and most importantly is the knowledge to use the information to tap into your subconscious mind and have it work for you, while your connection with the universe will guide and direct you towards whatever intent you give it to acquire…that is my promise to you…how amazing is that….?

Your subconscious mind it beyond what people of my age tend to study…and it’s because we have the time…not let’s not get fricken nuts here…it not like the…OK let’s put a name to it…us Baby Boomers, have all the time in the world…we don’t.  Many of us are retired and really what important to us in our enjoyment…these are our golden years…years spent doing what we want…when we want without the worry of what someone my say…  You see I started out not really caring what people thought of me but then you move out so much more into the world and sad but true you tend to conform…at least to a bit…anyway as you get older you tend to bring back that attitude of not caring what others think of you so you start living a life that is how you want it.  Plus as you get older you become wiser…but you younger people don’t realize that…hell you don’t even realize your kids are running nuts in a restaurant.  When children are young…you working out in the world as parents you have no clue…your too swamped with your mind overloading because of all the thoughts running rampant within your mind…but as you go through these things you realize ways to slow down those thoughts…

What I can tell you is women are much better at thins than men…if I had to guess I would say it due to their ability to feeling things better and it’s through those feeling things grows better or stronger intuition…sorry guys is what it is.   At the end of the day as we get older through our wisdom we begin to see things a bit differently…feeling things a bit differently…and it causes you to look at this a bit differently.  We begin searching out these concepts by reading more and more books…working on ourselves…finding out about ourselves…you know that inner self…but guess what…you’re getting in on the ground floor before you reach those golden years…and what you will discover is you can use what I will reveal to you to reach those golden years and doing it living a life of abundance…and money is not what I’m referring to…but we will get into this a bit later also….OK…so without further ado let’s start getting to the abyss of things and what better way than to talk about things which were written eons ago but still remain the truth…still shows us the ways…and provides us with answers we known all along.

So may the force be with you…or at least the Cosmic Habit Force.

This is something that I read way back when I read a book by Napoleon Hill which was called “Think and Grow Rich”…an amazing book and if you’ve never read it I would suggest you stop reading this post and go buy the book and read it…it was phenomenal in my mind.

This is one of those universal laws to which there are many…but this one kind of give us a sort of definiteness of action to pretty much  everything moving throughout the universe, at least as I understand it.  I continue from my perspective it keeps the stars and planets in their specific places and it fixes the life patterns of every living thing. The important thing to take from this is we have the ability to use this law to establish our own habits, good or bad it doesn’t matter because like many universal laws good or bad doesn’t apply it just works.

My understanding is this particular law controls and binds every live thing lower in the scale of intelligence with the exception of us and for us it’s more commonly called instinct.  We can and do in some cases rise above these fixed patterns and establish our own patterns.  This is the only thing which we have complete control and direction.  It’s interesting in that our infinite intelligence, God, Supreme Being or whatever name you feel comfortable with using, gives us dreams, wishes or desires whereby the it has not also given us the ability to achieve any of these dreams, wishes, or desires…so it stands to reason if you have the ability to think it up, or dream it…you have the ability to create it, get it or accomplish it…yeah.

Like every other universal law cosmic habit force has a positive and negative side to it.  The negative side is called hypnotic rhythm which causes our thoughts to drift if you will and sad as it may be many people tend to drift through our lives and as we drift we attract everything we do not want into our lives.  Which is the reason we constantly need understand our thoughts , if we don’t control them will control us…it takes some real will power to stay focused upon the things we want most and we have to stay focused until a thought pattern takes over by the habit of the cosmic force.

Emerson’s law of cause and effect basically tells us nothing just happens by luck every effect has its definite cause.  This is basically how Hill explained how to use the Cosmic Habit Force.

  1. It fixes the habits of electron, protons, neutrons of matter so their chemical elements always follow the same patterns, which is why everything in the universe comes under the influence by the cosmic habit forces.
  2. It fixes these patterns on every plant upon this earth so each thing will reproduce under its own pattern…wheat will always reproduce wheat…so that being said under this law wheat will never produce corn or a tree. Another example of the Cosmic Habit Force is 1 atom of hydrogen 2 atoms of oxygen combine will always produce water…never anything else because of this cosmic habit force.
  3. When the mind of a human is focused on its definite major purpose the cosmic habit force goes into action immediately and begins to attract to us the material equivalent of that of which we had our minds focused upon, just like it does with water this law never varies… however…here is comes…if we are not focused upon our goals then drifting or negative rhythm comes into play and will just as easily attract all the undesirable, unpleasant and unwanted things we dwell upon by drifting. Such as poverty, lack, ill health, failure, fear and all undesirable things.
  4. Those who are successful have established a thought pattern in their mind which the cosmic habit forces as picked up and carried out to its logical conclusion. Understand believe as you say “I know exactly what I want from life and I have faith I will get it…not matter what”  There is a word Doctors use called fixation as in someone who believes they are ill fixate on that illness and soon do in fact have that illness.  Fixation can be a priceless asset when used in a positive way by fixating on those things we want our dreams, wishes, hopes and desires.  Cosmic habit force is the law that  and this fixation.



 Understanding this law you will undoubtedly have your map to all the riches you may dream of just beware of drifting.





Not something that is easy to do but I thought I would take a couple of post and talk about using some success principals to help you figure out if your thinking accurately…then maybe jump over to something some people call the Cosmic Habit Force.  Not going to tell you about that one you will have to read my post for next week.

Ok let’s get back to this post what is really Thinking Accurately?  Accurate thinking is based upon two fundamentals…inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning…sound pretty simple right?

I will do my best to explain them…usually inductive reasoning is used when the necessary facts that we’re basing our thinking on are simply just not available, and so in that case we act upon a hypotheses or what we would call assuming the facts to be, but as you know you really never want to assume because how many times have you been told when you assume you make an ass our of me and you…not sure I get that though.

Now my interpretation of deductive reasoning is when we have the facts or at least what appears to be the facts upon that which we can somewhat base our thinking upon…although many times we find our fact are skewed to some degree…yeah!

Let’s take the first stage of what is commonly called accurate thinking.  This stage is to do our best to separate the facts from fiction.  This is done in an attempt to determine if we’re dealing with hypotheses/guess or actual facts.  Once we’ve figured out the actual facts we can then begin by dividing them up into two separate classes…the first being one of important facts and and the second one being that of unimportant facts…

So how do we distinguish an important fact from an unimportant one…good question?  Ok an important fact would be any fact that aids us in any way in favor of getting the object of our major purpose or desire, and for a better word let’s say goal, and then all the other facts not relating to this are classified as unimportant facts…see not a tough as it sounds in the beginning.

Now as we all know opinions are worthless or less than worthless and it doesn’t matter if they are good or bad simply because they are not based on facts.  Usually opinions are what someone has heard, or been told, which makes them our opinions and ultimately useless.  There is a quote of such I think by Theodore Roosevelt that goes something like he was asked for his opinion to which he said…which by the way would be good to learn this and repeat it to anyone asking for your opinion “I cannot answer your question because I have no facts on which to base an intelligent opinion”.

Here are 7 pretty basic rules to follow if you would like to become an accurate thinker.

  1. Never accept the opinion of other until you have identified the source of their opinion and are satisfied the source is valid.
  2. Remember that “FREE ADVICE” is usually worth exactly what it cost.
  3. Be alert when someone is speaking of other in a disrespectful or negative way because what you’re hearing is biased opinions.
  4. When you ask for information do not disclose what you wish the information to be because most people have the bad habit of trying to please others and may only give you information you want to hear even if they know the facts do not support their opinion.
  5. Remember anything that exists is capable of being proven and therefore if something is not capable of being proven it’s safe to assume it may not exist.
  6. Great unexplainable miracles consist in the fact that most truth and falsehood by no means by which they’re expressed and carry with them a silent invisible means of identifying themselves as such.
  7. Begin as a habit to ask the question(s) how do you know, or how did you discover this, to any statement you cannot identify as truth


Probably the most important thing to remember when making a decision or coming to an opinion is as human beings  we tend to allow our emotions to rule our thinking so do as scientist do, and remove all emotions from your accurate thinking.




Christmas 2015

Oh yeah baby…Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring…which was kind of sucky…we should be doing something.

Ok here’s the deal…this Christmas my entire family decided to make our gifts instead of going out and buying something for everyone…we kind of wanted to get back to, even for me, would be the olden days.  Let’s be real here though I needed to do something to take advantage of this new era of ours but what…what could I do if I was going to just buy one present and only one present and give it to the entire family…that would take some thinking on my part.

So I thought about this for some time and finally came up with what I thought would be the perfect gift…not something they could return because it was only one gift, and knowing my family I knew they would love it.  My idea was I would try to rent a limo and take the whole family out to see some of the best Christmas lights in Phoenix…more or less.

The dilemma came when I figured up the family and I was going to need a nice limo that could handle 15 people somewhat comfortably…I didn’t want everyone squeezed into this limo so they couldn’t enjoy the ride or the lights.  I talked with some friends who had ridden in limos but they told me they had never had 15 people…that was my chore…to find someone who could take care of us, because I was not going to be paying for two limos…hell if I was going to do that I could just take my car and one of the kid’s car…they had a van that would work…but not to stylish.

I began calling around the Phoenix area, but since we live in Glendale it would be nice to have one closer to home…but either way I was on the search for the eluding magical limo service that could accommodate my whole family and give me my Christmas Dream come true for my family.

What I discovered the more I called was most of the services were either not available and couldn’t help me out or they wanted a week’s pay for what would be two to three hours top…and I was getting pretty frustrated thinking maybe should have planned this out a bit better…or at the least it seems a bit earlier.

Then WHAM! I found one located right here in Glendale.  It’s called Glendale limo and…ready for it…they had just the limo for us it would hold 16-18 people and they were running a special for a Christmas lighting tour and the price was amazing.

I mean not only did they have the limo that sounded so good and it sounded like it would hold all of us fairly comfortable and the price was very reasonable, and to top that off they knew the perfect places to take us to see some amazing lights.  The guy I was talking to told me if we wore our coats when he pulled into the housing addition that had the lights he could open up this huge moon roof and the kids or us could pop out and look at the lights.

So as I started this off Twas the night before Christmas when the magical limo pulled up in front of our home and my entire family scurried out…whatever scurrying looks like…and into our beautiful horseless carriage.

Our evening started out by having him drive us to our dinner reservations where we ate and hopped back into the limo…I have to say though my family felt so important being in that limo…the way he dropped us off at the door and then picking us up the same way just made us feel important…like the rich and famous…

When we pulled into the housing addition he opened the window between us and told us to get ready as the moon roof began to open.  I never knew people went to this degree to decorate their houses for Christmas they were some spectacular homes.  Hell when I popped my head out the moon roof I thought I was in Vegas with the number of lights on these people’s homes…I sure if I was standing on the street I could have read a newspaper at 10:00 at night in this addition…it must have been well over a million lights.

My family had the most special Christmas they had ever experienced.  I felt so blessed to have found Glendale Limo service, which is the reason I’m adding links to their website.  If you are ever looking for an amazing ride where you feel so incredibly blessed through the city of Phoenix, Scottsdale and finally Glendale then give them a call.

I found out the driver we had was actually the owner of the company and he told me if anyone ever came to him and related my name to them he would give them a 10% discount on their reservation…so there you go…

I’m ending this post in one of the most grateful moods I’ve been in all year and it all because of the amazing evening I was able to give to my entire family.  Thank you self for coming up with the idea and sticking with it to find the perfect gift.
