I wanted to begin by summarizing, but then I got to thinking, shoot, we aint even had no spring yet! So, this morning I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, it is possible to do these things, the economy may be bad, but they still have enough left over, to keep the lights on …. For now anyway.
Focus, you just have to hang in there. The man who sticks to his plan will become what he used to want to be. Perhaps I am like Icarus, simply a man who dared to dream, a man who flew too close to the sun. Or like Daedalus, a man who equipped his son with unsafe wings made of easily melted beeswax? I would say the answer to this question is all and neither.
Dream little or dream small …. In the final tally … it doesn’t matter at all.
Most people think life sucks, and then you die. Not me. I beg to differ. I think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills then you work hard for say, thirty-five years, and you pay it back and then one day you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, and then you die.
The national media coverage on the election continues to be “dismal at best.” The outright lying and perfidy seems to have escalated this week. I swear, if I get one more Email on illegals, Hillary, Obama and McCranky I am going to pull my hair out (and I certainly do not have a lot of it pull at this juncture in time. Matter of fact, I have more in my ears than I have on my head).
I would rather see reporting on the malfeasances of the rich and powerful, and some indefatigable media coverage that turns up evidence of same. That would satisfy my fury of being milked too death, and starved out of life as we know it. I don’t need debates on illegal aliens, I need some relief from the very American’s that live here, the rich and the powerful.

Starting to notice a pattern here?
Books are so dog-gone expensive anymore, I don’t know how anyone can afford to buy and read two or three a month. A cheap read is about $15 anymore and that doesn’t guarantee it will be a “good read” by any stretch of the imagination.
I have been spending a lot of time at the keyboard, and I miss my reading time. I am anxiously anticipating spring, some time on the porch with a good book, a glass of sweet tea. Sure hope I can afford one of the two.
