"Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land." -- MLK Jr., to Memphis sanitation workers the night before he was assassinated on this balcony. @ncrmuseum

"Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride." --National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis. Go see it. @ncrmuseum

What better way to endure sealing my driveway than listening the the entire @3doorsdown catalogue and my favorite @brad3doorsdown song. Sorry for the Amazon Prime boys. My iPod loaded with every 3DD song was stolen in Peru while on a mission trip and I needed a fix while doing the drive. #rockon!

He knows it's time for his people to leave, which means it's time for the cone of shame to go around his neck due to allergies and scratching. Normally he is forever underfoot, except when he senses eminent departure. There was a retreat upstairs and the hope we'd forget this time.
