My Cave My View

MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres My too kind and loving wife and I are on vacation headed out to Nashville.  I have stopped in Scott, AR, a town so small Monticello would seem like a sprawling metropolis in comparison.  First, I have to tell you that there is a Monticello connection;...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres Contrary to the belief of many people, most of my time at the BLM is spent trying to manage our natural resources and get something constructive done; a trust by the American public that I take very seriously.  Mostly, I have tried hard to keep it very...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I have to confess that I just had a birthday and was a little disappointed at the turnout to the party that my too kind and loving wife didn’t have for me. But, I did experience a first this year: people wished me happy birthday on FaceBook.  And for those...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I am on my way to Papua New Guinea (PNG), or at least that is what my ticket stub says.  I had my doubts as to whether or not I would ever make it through the security checks. Besides, it just isn’t one of my regular stops that I make.  I have traveled...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres My too kind and loving wife; I frequently wonder what she was thinking, but I always know where her heart is.  She signed me up for the gym again.  She is taking Pilates for fanatics and a core training class at the college from ex-Marines.  I am thinking...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres Boy you cannot imagine the burden of guilt lifted off my shoulders recently when the official LDS Church website came out and said that caffeinated drinks did not condemn me to Outer Darkness.  Now there are plenty of other sins that I regularly practice...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW It is not every day that I decide to go for a hike carrying a 40-pound pack and bring my too kind and loving wife along with her very own 35-pound pack.  Most people thought that carrying a pack should come natural to me; as many have called me a beast of burden.  I don...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am not sure what made me do it.  I can usually count on my too kind and loving wife to have some common sense when it comes to my youthful uncontrolled exuberance to do something stupid.  But, she was nowhere to be found or at least her motherly instincts for...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW Well it is finally done. I say done, but I mean finished. My too kind loving wife always points that out when the bread is baked, it is then done; but a task or work is finished. I don’t get a lot of work finished; but I do like baked bread. So like I said it is done. I...
MY CAVE, MY VIEW I am eavesdropping on a young married couple during church.  When the young woman asks her newly acquired husband, “Don’t you think it is time we start a family?”  She crinkles her nose and bats her eyelashes.  My first thought was, “Here?  Now?”  But, I get a hold of...
