And suddenly I realize some unsettling things. Some are concrete, some are just a state of mind at present.
I am old...
Youth is wasted on the young. We should each get 100 years. Start at 100. Walker, damn near blind and deaf, wearing depends and eating mashed up peas, potatoes and meatloaf. The younger we got, the less wise we'd become but we'd sure have fun! We'd end our days in diapers eating mashed up vegetables and fruit. Suddenly one day we'd just go "POP!" and disappear.
We dont just have one journey in life, we have many. I believe its up to us to make the best of each journey.
As I get older, I fully intend to do so with some semblance of dignity and grace. That being said, I dont intend to take everythinbg too seriously. There are plenty enough things that have to be taken seriously without adding to it.
One day Ill be a grandfather. One day Ill be gone.
I wonder if others think as I do and wonder what legacy will they leave once their journey is complete.

What a busy time. Everyone seems to be in flux, in chaos. Everyone except me. I seem to be in a little bubble in the middle of everyone, watching them flail about and stress this and that.
Well, I can do without the stress but Im up for a lil bit of change at work.
Two in my department are sick.Its not quite the flu, a lot more than a cold. They think theyre dying. I keep telling them "Squeeze half a lemmon, add 2 shots good bourban, a spoonful of honey, microwave for 5 seconds. Sip that and repeat as many times as necessary until you either feel better or just dont give a fuck.
One has two houses and living in a large apartment and wonders how they are going to pay for it all. Uh... Ya might try getting rid of 2 of the 3?
Just an idea.
Another lives in a skank mobile home in a thug neighborhood and has a chance to take a job far away in a state that he loves doing what he really wants to and make a buttload of money doing it... But is letting unfounded fears stop him.
Me? I just want a small promotion. That would give me more hours and more money per hour. That equals me being a happy camper.
Found me an ol 76 for stepside, souped up 302, speed shifter on the floor, mechanically its rock solid. The inside is all original. Im ok with that. Im digging the old style not quite krager wheels. Its primared black cept for the chrome. REALLY digging the ratrod look. Who knows? Very possible very soon.
The weather here has been extraordinary! A lot of days when its been 68-70 degrees. And most are highs in the 60's. Ill take it!
The sands, the ocean, the fishing! Yippee!

So much food and so much fun was had today at Thanksgiving!
Krick and I have found out that we make a pretty damn good potato peeling team.
Lots of laughs, a beautiful sunny blue sky and, between about 4 of us, lots of great food. Turkey, ham, dressing, muffins, home made bread, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, peas, gravy, 6 different pies!
I know Im missing some stuff that was on the table. Krick and I spent a lot of time sitting out back since it was such a nice day.
Tomorrow is back to the grindstone for both of us. Thats ok, I need a good reason to work off a few pounds after last night!

I woke up this morning and it was rainy and the wind gusted randomly. But I was content with that because it was about 75 degrees. I wasnt ecstatic about it but Ill take it in the middle of November.
Now its squalling. A few hours of that the way I understand. Rain coming in at almost horizontal angle with the wind pushing it along at who knows how fast is always a little bit unnerving.
But its kind of beautiful too. Mother nature throwing a minor fit. lol.
It'll all be over soon enough. I hope we keep the warm temps.

I tend to sweat the small stuff. And by that I mean I worry about money (or lack there of) my weight (and then do fuck all about it) and stuff in general like that.
But, honestly, I have moments when I look at the meat of the matter, the kernal or nut or root of it all and see...
Wow... Im a lucky man. Im healthy, my family is healthy and I know they love me as much as I love them. My Kricket is my Heart. She amazes me daily and gives at LEAST as much love as I give.
So, today, we shant let the worries worry us. They will untangle and sort themselves by and by. Today we sit back, bask in the warm sunshine that is love and being loved, sip on good whiskey until Kricket gets home. Then... Well, then Im gonna kiss her soundly, with feeling and like I MEAN it.
And tell her how much I missed her and how thankful I am for her.
Mercy, but I do so love that womans smile.
