Last to know...

I have lots of folks come to me & ask me all kinds of questions & most of the time, I have the answers or can find it out for them. Yet, while being known as a guy who has the answers...How come sometimes, you find yourself the last person to know things that are really important when they involve you.

Example? just one of many...Let me grab one... Way back, years ago, I was living with this gal & we were planning on getting married. Long story short, I caught her boning a guy, who I went out of my way to get a job. Now, I was floored, but not as much as when I found out that everyone I knew....And I mean everyone, knew about it, except me.

Not one of them bothered to tell me.

When I asked why, they said, well, you would never have believed us. Really? When lets say, 50 people know something, you would think at least one of them would take the chance to clue my dumb ass in.

Nope. People I would walk through fire for, were just pleased to allow me to go ahead & marry a cheating whore. Which she was by the way.

So, while it took me many more years & examples, to finally realize that if I want to know something, I need to depend on myself. That, & I can't trust anyone who tells me shit anyway. Because as I am wiser, I still have people do it to me. These days, I can spot bullshit as soon as they open their mouth & start to let it roll off of their tongue.

Sometimes, I just let them go on. Other times, I have to stop them & say, talk to the hand. Either way, here is some advice. If you want something done right, do it yourself. If someone tells you something, take it with a grain of salt, because most of it is probably embellished.

Almost Christmas...

Yesterday I went & put some new tires on little red & while the guys at the tire shop cut me some slack on the price...I still had to check my ass as I was leaving to make sure it wasn't bleeding too much.

The last few days has been crammed with stuff I have encountered & completed. Some days are simply like a rock that has been pushed off of a huge hill. It rolls it's ass off & before you know it, you're at the bottom, thinking, that went by way too fast.

I got my annual TB test results & it's nice to know I haven't been exposed, seeing that I'm constantly surrounded by people who carry all kinds of nasty bugs. A lot of folks have been sick & are walking around hacking all over everyone & everything. Got my flu shot back in September...hey, one can never be too careful these days. If you wake up & Mr. Winky hasn't fallen off while you slept...It's a good day.

I found this dude (who must have way too much time on his hands) on the web & I have been keying up my radio & playing clips for guys who I work with. Apparently, this guy has the same song & just drops different names in each time. Yeah, when one of them gives me crap, I play the song that plops their name in there....Hey, I'm an awesome asshole;~)

When the weather turns nice..

On the way into work, when the weather just happens to be nice... You see all kinds of people acting crazy.

This guy is hauling a vehicle and he took the turn too fast, probably trying to beat the light.

There is a report on the radio, that there is a bad wreck on 270 and Olive.

So goes the commute to crackhead land.

Rainy day.

Weather like this & I just want to spend the day in bed under a nice warm blanket. But I had to get out & run some favors.

I took some wicker pieces over to the folks house & I went to get my tires rotated. Instead, I went ahead & ordered four new ones to put on Thursday. The tread is still half, but I want new ones on before I have to drive in Winter weather.

I'll give these to Pop & let him sell them. He took one of the barrels I gave him & sliced it up & made him a couple of stump burners. We were torching one yesterday & drinking a few cold ones.

Doing laundry & thinking about snuggling up & watch movies the rest of the day, but I'm betting I'll have to get back out...The best laid plans of mice & men...

Running around.

Having a cell phone while in a store is pretty cool. I was able to snap a picture & make sure I was getting what the Grandson wanted. I also was amazed that where they told me to go get it, I actually found it, plus... After I bought a bunch of stuff, they added it up & I saved 95 dollars.

Shit, I set a budget (because if I don't, I go in the hole pretty quick) but this will allow me to get some more for him & still stay in the parameters. As it is, I spent more than I should all the way around & I'm not finished.

But hell, I can't take it with me & I just get all stupid at Christmas time. I even dropped some money in the food pantry kettle. Got home & saw that my dusk to dawn light was burnt out....

Damn, another thing on the list to do tomorrow. I need to change my oil sometime this weekend & go get the tires rotated or put some new rubber on the little red beast.

Right now, cold ones & good tunes.

This, is the time of the year...

When you hate your government. Right before Christmas, you get your tax notices from your friendly local government.

I'm celebrating Thanksgiving today (because I worked yesterday) & when I opened my tax bill, I just seethe at how much those bastards soak me.

I think back to how Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple & I smile thinking how much I would like to be in charge & what I would do. I would slice so much wasted shit it would make your head swim. It is a testament towards the tolerance & good nature of the majority of our citizens, that they continue to put up with this kind of crap.

I don't do the Black Friday insanity. Oh, I have in the past. I waited for hours in line, as an act of love, for my wife, because she asked me to do it. So much for a return on that investment.

Hey, I'm not bitter.

 I'm drinking a cold one, I'm off of work & I wrote my little check for the tax bill. Doing laundry, so I'll have nice clean sheets to crash on later. Life is good.

Don't think that I haven't thought about taking a dump & putting it in my return envelope to send to the County for the tax bill. That would be cool only if I could see the expression on the face of the individual who opened it.

Giving Thanks.

That I didn't see this asshole get killed as he blew right through the red light at this bad intersection in the distance. (had a little kid in the seat next to him)

I saw all kinds of accidents on the way in last night & people were generally driving like dicks. Cutting each other off & weaving in & out of lanes. And on the way home, I had the pleasure of the drunk folks getting out of the guns & hoses boxing matches.

If you were raised right, you learned manners at an early age. You were taught to say thank you & please & you're welcome. You used them when they were required, but eventually, you come to realize that being thankful is an every day occurrence. Not just on the Holiday.

I wake up in the morning, the first thing I try to do, is thank God for another day. (I might creak & moan a bit first) I continue to do so throughout my day & it is the last thing I say before I fall asleep. Later today, I will be at crackhead land, thanking God that I am where he wants me to be. (and hoping that everyone is safe & happy where they are)

Unless I croak in my sleep. If that happens my plans are changed.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving, because if you are one of those folks who spend most of their days being miserable, then at least pick a few that you can find something to be grateful to God for. Today should be one of them.

Get er done....
