Senior Sunset

When I was a boy,
the devil would taunt me and call my name,
He would say to me who do you think you are,
who do you think you are fooling
And we would play the game

Test On Friday …

Old guyMan that expression used to literally send a chill up my spine in High School … “Smith, there is going to be a test on this Friday.”  Funny how times change, now I see people flocking to take tests all the time.

Each week on FakeBook I see all of these “so-called quizzes” where you are told the meaning of your name, how old you REALLY are, how smart you seem to be or could be.  I find them amusing.

Something lite for you today, you get amused, and I get a break.  Like the Indian Wind In His Hair would say … Good Trade (in the Kevin Costner movie Dancin’ With Wolves).

Surfing around the net this morning, trying desperately to find something amusing, I am so tired of the negative vibes that seem to be reverberating around this world we all live in.

My efforts produced nothing.  But I am going to forge ahead anyway, there is always another bend in the river of time.

My rote routine is different this day, I somewhat reluctantly welcome the change.

Over-Nighting With A Twist

Over the years while traveling the Interstate system, I have coveted certain areas that I will pull over and park for the night.  I have a favorite spot to break Denver-OKC or Las Vegas-OKC and so forth.  One such place is a WalMart outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico, just on the east side after you come up the canyon.  This year on the way to Pahrump for the bus meet, we pulled in there to overnight and get some groceries.

This morning I was out there early, real early, sitting in the still of the morning, before the sun had come up.

Pull On My Ears, Give Me Some Love …

I meditate.  I burn candles.  I drink green tea.  And yes … I often want to smack people.  Nothing seems to work here lately.

On days like I just had today, I want to walk over to someone and stick my head in their crotch and take a long, deep-breath just like Jack, and let them scratch my ears.  There are days, believe it or not, that the life of a dog would actually be preferable.

But alas, I don’t have enough money to buy a fine dog to live vicariously thru, just a pocket full of kindness to make him wag his tail.

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

One last thing:  “Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail, friended me on FakeBook or came to this webpage in the first place?

Me too.

Down From The Mountain

40An old lion who had lived his entire life high upon the mountain, decided one day to go down into the valley to see what life there was all about.  He walked around for awhile, and inspected all there was to see in this valley, until late afternoon.

At that point in time, he decided he was hungry, so he set out to find some game for his meal.

DSC00182Another session of being poked, prodded and nudged.  Walking into the Dr. Office I fill out the paper work and I assumed the position in the comfortable chair, put my head back on the wall and once again drift off …
