When I woke today, I had an issue that was on my mind. I had paid my rent on the apartment using bill pay from my bank, I knew better but I still was trying to use services that were provided. I do not use paper checks, do not believe in them. We had a holiday, so the delivery was moved around by the bank in the processing. Well it was a sizable value and I know the three day rule of the apartments lease. The check had cleared the bank but not delivered as of yesterday, today when the mail was delivered, my check was delivered and I was sitting in the office. I was so relieved.
I had to purchase a new printer this morning, the old one for some reason had a failure code of 97 and I could not find the problem. I got a cheap HP but full function, heck it even has its own email. I guess I can go online 1000 miles away and go on line and print at home. What is this world coming to, a machine with an email.
Now, as I do this, I have Elvis on YouTube doing his Gospel songs. He for sure was good at that, of course I guess it did not pay as well as Rock n Roll. I saw one of his concerts once in 1976 in Omaha, NE, the same year that I joined the Navy.
Days of the past…miss those days but life moves on for the good or bad.
As I sit at my desk, I am busy on something that is either easy or hard for me. I, sometimes, do not know if I should give up (that is not me), jump up and down (this makes no sense, it you jump up then why jump down as you will fall down anyway), or be intellectually inclined and keep trying harder. I have never felled at but one thing in my life and that was marriage. I shall keep working on any manipulations that might bother me, become ambitious and win the battles ahead. Oh, I for got animated: well I have not made the cartoons yet.
Move forward and conquer all in front of me, only then may I look back and say I did it on my own.
I am, herein, expressing my opinion from my own perspective of what I did last week . It is simple but sad all the same. I have since 2010 been going to breakfast at the Waffle House in my home town, mostly every day. Now I have seen many come and many go from there. Some that I use to talk to left for good, their time card was punched and their pink slip received saying their days on earth had come to an end. I, on the other hand, have grown tired of the early rise in the morning just to go there and socialize with other old people that had to go to work, yet not able to, laugh, and pay a lot just to sit there and criticize each other just for the heck of it.
Well, last week I made the decision not to go all week. I honored myself with that decision and this morning I went to see what I had been missing and enjoying for a week. It did not take long for me to see what I had not missed. luckily, one old friend did come in and we talked a bit, he as I, do not desire the attitudes of some, so we had a great conversation and he went to the gym and I came home. I may go back on Monday just to say hello to a friend that works there and will be in at 5:45AM. Then I think I most likely call it quits and cook at home much cheaper and to my taste. No attitudes, and child play of 70 year old or older.
Last week I slept better, ate better, felt better, and just plain enjoyed myself as much as I could. I am not at the age that I have to just do the best that I can and hope it goes well with the Boss upstairs.
It’s been a week for a decision, I have now made it.
I did make the adventure to the next stage of an interest of mine. Well, before I express my opinion of my internet adventure of which I write, let me say the rain, however, lite is still rain so I invested my time to YouTube’s photographic section and had a good and long presentation of landscape photography. It was a good presentation in many parts and descriptions until the presenter started to tear up over the views. They were awesome views of different parts of the world. I am interested in that kind of art and also that of macro-photography of flowers, insects, and other views. So yes, I did go to YouTube for a while today.
As I move about within my apartment I hear this notification that something is going on. It just went off and when I looked it was my watch telling me that my heart was ticking. Heck, I did not know that I had a heart. I can take a statoscope and I can not even hear it. I know some of the doctors and nurses say I have one. Some “friends” and “kin” say that I have a good heart, of course I disagree. I have a sad heart if any at all because it is hurt so many times for others and their actions.
My heart is not broken and is ticking with hopes that it will gain a few more miles over the next few years. Time will tell and I hope to see. Happy ticks to each.
