[0103]  Old Man Time ….  Here we go, third day of a New Year, absolute resolutions.  Here is number one:  “I need all of you to stop sending me these “make seventeen copies of this” and then pass it on for good health and riches stuff.  It doesn’t seem to be working.

[1204]   Short Short … Often in life, it just doesn’t add up.  In my case it NEVER adds up.  Been a slow day here at the goat farm, need some sunshine, I am so far in the dark now, they will have to pump it into me when they do find some.

[1205]  The Short Rows … I like the country Can’t stand all this city strife Guess I want to be on the boulevard … rollin’ Rollin’ all my life. Open the east gate of Yellowstone and let me in! Thinking about Bear Tooth Pass, Cooke City, Red Lodge Montana two-lane highways and cheap gas. Crater Lake, Junction City, Tahoe, Clear mountain streams

[1206]  Second Time Around … What would you do if you had it to do all over again.  Everyone must be out of town, or something.  Visitors to the blog seem to be down and I don’t know why.  On some days, you step back take a long hard look at it and then you think. You know what … I really don’t care.

[1207]  The Hereafter … A friend of mine sent me this thing, about how much life has changed since 1955 and what struck me odd about it all, was that “it didn’t seem that long ago, but it has been quite sometime.”  This is what happens to you as you grow older, and life sneaks up on you.

[1210]  New Deal … Usually I refrain from political issues, but for some reason, I just feel like belting one out this morning.  So here goes.  One feature I find interesting on WordPress.com is the “global dashboard” feature, you click on it and it takes you to a blog, any blog, and often I find myself on one of these so-called political blogs.  Which most of the time, are about as stimulating as a luke warm glass of tea on a hot summer day or kissing your sister.  Not much there.Politics in the Heartland, what is not right in America these days.

[0112]  Its Bikini Season Somewhere … Winter storm rolled thru here this weekend, and it has snapped off cold, bitter cold.  This time of the year always has me thinking of warmer climes, Florida, The Caribbean, Phoenix or any place over 55*F.  Hollywood Hard Bodies video.

[0114]  Modern Day Trappings …  This week has been interesting to say the least, I am finding myself somewhat intrigued by this Facebook thing, is it going to go under or is it going to stay?  Are those die-hard Facebooker’s going to survive or are they going to melt down into some kind of sniveling mass of humanity?

[0121]  Vision And Hope … Some days are better than others, sometimes I am rock steady and at other times, shaky and not so confident. Take yesterday for instance, I was at WalMart getting some salad stuff and I see her, heading my way, down the main aisle. And she is TEXT MESSAGING while pushing a shopping cart ….

[0124]  Twisted Evolution … Three of my good friends called to check on me this weekend, I am pleased.  Put me down as a Happy Camper in life.  Of those, my friend Wynell, was even brave enough to venture an opinion of sorts.  She said that I need to get out of the house more often.  Buffalo wings and other assorted non-sense.

[0126]  Clean Air ... travel in deep space, prose, life in general a little humor, will make you smile.

[0128]  Crossroads … Rushing to meet the new day, standing in the kitchen, apparently not willing to wait for a fresh cup of coffee, in my haste I am tapping the pot for something that is akin to lukewarm, half-brewed brown elixir. Give it to me!  I need it now! A little Carrie Underwood on CMT

[0131]  It Must Be Monday The wind blows hard this morning, it comes roaring across the plains with a vengeance, carrying it with bitter cold.  I don’t know where it is has been, but it has been blowing across snow, it tears at the corner of my eye, and it chills me to the marrow of my bone.
