Send me some sunshine … I will pay the freight.

Been an interesting week for sure.  Some of it good, some of it not so good.  (more…)

Honey it’s on … They are lying to us again, come watch this.

This post contains plenty of hot air, and none of it, has been deleted.  I just love it when politicians come on television, knocking off World Wrestling, to tell me how good I have it.  Right when you are getting into, I mean, really getting into, the Paso De-Doughblee on Dancing With The Stars, they switch to the scripted drivel that politicians call “Leadership.”

New Horizons …

imgres

There is something being kicked around, a new vision on the horizon for bus owners.  People are discussing the possibility of bringing something back from the dead (no this is not Jerry Springer, this is the real deal), a de facto expired bus board pulled from the trash-bin and given new life.  (more…)

Internet is down … Wow!  So this is what the outdoors looks like?

Tomorrow on Creative Endeavors, Facebook and maybe somewhere else, I am running a post entitled “New Horizons” that is loosely based on the suggestion of bringing back the old EI board.   If you are interested, this is where it will be.  Also, if you need a friend link for FaceBook send it, www.Boxcarokie.com doesn’t require any such thing that I know of.

Tommy B. Lemmer

imgresA big portion of my life was spent riding the rails, so railroaders come to mind quickly.  Crazy bunch of guys. 

Tommy B. Lemmer was a guy I worked with on the Santa Fe Railroad.  Knowing full well that there are some six billion people on this planet, I will shamelessly declare that, “Tommy was unique.  He was one of a kind.  He was my friend.  I have not spoken with him in years, don’t even know how to get ahold of him, but he can still make me smile.

I was responding to a post by nursekelly on the trials and tribulations of blogging.  It piqued my interest and resulted in a post of its own.  As of this January, I have now been blogging for 3 years (on and off) and I make the following observations:

It was very hard to start.  I was fearful of saying something stupid or wrong and of not getting any response.  Over time, I found it easier to post, although finding new topics is still difficult and seems to come in spurts.  Saying stupid things comes naturally to me so I got over that quickly.

I picked a theme to find “my voice.”  Being a curmudgeon-at-large wasn’t that hard. Even though there were and are others with the same idea, my innate warped sense of humor gave me focus.  Can you blog successfully without a focus?  Well, Jerry Seinfeld made millions of…

Out To Lunch

Yesterday me and the Mrs. we drove to Oklahoma City and went out to eat.  Hate to do it this far away from payday, but we had not been there in quite sometime.  The drive into town is not so bad any more, we have a new interstate connection, six full lanes, each one homesteaded by a driving impaired lane change dummy.

A couple of things about this incredible video.  First the pace it sets, how it leaps from one shot to the next.  A sign of our new generation who click and move on?  The second thing I found amazing is how many of these locations I have been to in my life.

A really nice video of this wondrous place we all live.
