I miss the unplanned nightly adventures that I experienced from 16-22.  I did work, so 8 hours of my day were planned by someone else. That allowed 16 hours to explore, and maybe a couple hours to sleep.  Of course some time was spent fixing my car that never cooled off......adventures in urban and suburban exploration.

We always remember Christmas. On Christmas about 10 or more years ago, I was in a cabin with my dog way up in Northern WI.  The BBS gang was there too, we chatted many hours on the BBS. I enjoyed that so much. My dog has died, but the BBS is for my luck still here.  We are a small group, but sure do enjoy each other.

Today I am doing a little cooking and relaxing.  The only complaint I can make is I sure do find going to the clinic every two weeks with this heart issue a major hassle. But, I am still kicking, so really what do I have to complain about?  There is no snow this year! That is a great thing. Last summer the domestic boss and I harvested 10 quarts of cherries from our tree, and I am baking a big pie!

So, I do miss a beer and scotch and bourbon, OK I can complain bout that! 

Merry Christmas......................may every day be happy and full of laughter!


Nice to relax.. I only work 4 tens now Mon thru Thurs, but its along 4 days, lol! A hail to the good times! I miss my ol party days sometimes....

Merry Christmas!
Best of health, Happiness, and Prosperity in 2016 and beyond.....

We all have so much to be grateful for, but many don't realize it until it gone.  Reflecting back 50 years ago, we lived in a run down apartment above an old store in south Minneapolis. We would have to fill 5 gallon cans of fuel oil to feed an old heater in the place. It was always cold. We were absolutely very poor folk. Somehow my mom was able to give me a Strombecker 1/32 slot car set for Christmas. My brothers and I played with that all night long and into the next morning.  What great fun!  During Christmas break from school I had a friend named Gerald come over to play. He came over to tell me his mom said he was not allowed to play with me anymore. I asked why. He told me his mom said we were too poor.  Looking back, we didn't have extra money, but we had extra love and happiness. I think his mom was poor in values and judgement.

Today, I live a comfortable life. I am much older, and still very happy with great values. I still experience people like Gerald's mom. I live in a community that most people have more money than compassion for people. Neighbors speak ill of me and my wife. We are called names and given the finger. Why? Well because we have been told we are from the "city" and don't fit into the community. Well, guess who's house has Christmas lights? Guess who takes care of their house and yard? Guess who has empathy and helps those that are less fortunate? It is not any of my neighbors!

So, we should look back and forward and appreciate the past and be positive about the future.  There will always be people around us that are blinded by their self importance.
