March 2017


I should be writing my auto-biography but after taking almost a year off, it’s hard to get rolling again. Besides nothing really has happened since my last entry last week. I went to work, I went to the gym & not a whole lot more.

While at work someone filmed Liz & myself at the Atco thingy where she made a Blooming Onion presentation. Last time I checked on it, it had well over 500 views, 4 shares, & 7 likes. For Lethbridge that’s pretty good I think. Plus we were on Twitter & Facebook as well.

What else? I am reading “The Boy Who Couldn’t Die” by Rick Gillis. He’s an artist I have made friends with while down here in Lethy. We started writing about the same time. We have a lot in common & I figure if he could do it so can I. I just need a little motivation. My health is not what it could be. I have a cavity or two, I need 7 crowns, I have a hernia, I have Ankylosing Spondylitis & probably a couple of other things. If my book sold well I could afford to tackle these problems, but until then all I can do is dream & keep on chipping away.

Anyhow I want to watch a music video or 2 before I go to sleep so I guess I’ll wind it up here. Oh & tomorrow I am quitting smoking. I think I might have a mild form of Emphysema & it’s not really the best thing to be doing since I don’t have the best of hearts. The surgery they did on me while I was around 12 to fix my leaky valve worked but that was 30 some odd years ago. According to the doctor I should have kicked the bucket in my 30’s but I am still here in my mid 40’s..

This winter is like the winters of the late 70’s & early 80’s. It seems like it’s never gonna’ end but I know that it will. Or maybe it won’t. I was sitting on the stairs having a cigarette the other night & was thinking about the damaged nuclear reactor in Japan, I forget it’s name but everyone knows which one I am talking about (Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant) Maybe this is nuclear winter? I wish I had the little doodad & I could take samples of the snow in the backyard. It would be freaky if it picked up anything.

Anyhow not a lot is going on with my life. One of these days I will hop back on the autobiography wagon, but not today.

Today I went to see “Logan”. It’s kinda’ sad that this is the end of him for now. I doubt if there is anyone who can do it better than Hugh Jackman, but we’l have to wait & see. Mutants are a wonderful thing whoever thought them up did a good thing. I was sitting in the theatre thinking what do I have in common with Wolverine, not a lot but we’re both Canadian, & we don’t heal as fast as we used too (I heal at a normal rate as anyone else or I used too). I have Anemia, there’s an Iron deficiency in my blood. Okay after looking it up in Wikipedia I see there’s a lot of other things that are wrong with me due to this. It’s funny what happens to you as life rolls along.

It’s spring forward tonight. I don’t like Daylight Savings Time, but it will be nice to have the sun out a little bit later than normal. I have SAD as well. That’s Seasonal Affective Disorder. Strangely though this year it didn’t bother me as much. Maybe going to the gym at least 5 times a week has been beneficial. Anyhow it’s getting late I’m gonna’ pack it in. The picture below is of a permanent installation at CASA. Ciao for nowfractured

slothrescue3  I use my stats as a guide to tailor my writing to whom the audience is. Different people like different things. I just get the country folks come from. If you write a reply there is a little bit more data that I receive. Or maybe there isn’t, no one has left a comment for a long time. This picture of a sloth is my spirit animal. I used to think it was a coyote, chameleon or other things but after contemplating it for a long time I came to this. I am slow. Not dumb slow regular slow. Some might say otherwise. I forgot where I got this picture from but if you know who took it give me their name so I can credit them. Poetry & other weirdness is on the way. It’s hard to get going again. The worst thing I do is spend too much time on Facebook. Anyhow ciao for now.
