Goodbye Facebook

I have been on Facebook for at least a dozen years. I’ve met a lot of good people there in that time frame, but last night I made my last post on my page. In the past couple of years the entirety of Facebook has gone in the toilet and it’s become a giant political shit show. Now days FB is nothing but a place for people to make and post 2 sentence hate blurbs and then walk away laughing. It seems to me it’s nothing but a platform designed to push you in whatever direction its’ owners want you to go. I no longer get any enjoyment when I read it, I just get pissed off, so I decided to do something about it and leave it to all the keyboard warriors and they can do with it whatever they want. There’s a couple of non-political groups I’ll still check out, but as for my OWN page…the end.

We’re very close to being done with the building of our house in Montana. Good, because I’m sick of that project. All along the way folks have said how we’d look back and say it was all worth it. Nope, not for me it hasn’t. At this point I just consider it to have taken a year of my life. In all honesty I’d rather have gone fishing and the sooner we get this thing done the better. Just like the mighty Casey, there is no joy in Mudville.

So, what does the future hold? Well, I have no idea but I do know things have got to change or I’m going to melt into a blob of goo. That being the case I’ll just start hanging out and posting here, just like in the “good old days” before FB even existed.

Talk to you soon.

As time drags along we can get caught up in our routines. When that happens our days all seem to run together and we cease differentiating between good and bad…they are just “days”. That being the case it behooves each and every one of us to take time once in a while to step out and enjoy ourselves for absolutely no other reason than to have fun. Yesterday was my time to step away and enjoy myself...CONTINUE

Being retired often means getting to do pretty much what you want to do. One of the drawbacks is that usually, in order to achieve that goal you have to get older. For some that means forever waking up long before the rooster crows and not being able to get back to sleep. Such was the case every day for the old decoy carverCONTINUE

A Thousand Brush Strokes

I am not a patient man by nature. I want things done right, and I want them done NOW! It has always gone against my grain to have a "wait and see" attitude, and with all the life changes in the last couple of years I have often been one frustrated individual...CONTINUE
