I realized I haven’t been paying attention to this blog as I should have been. Some of you might have started thinking I died. Well I’m still here 🙂 End of January I celebrated birthday 53. Funny how mentally I don’t feel I’m that old. The body is giving subtle hints though. I have been … Continue reading I’m still alive
I’m presently sitting in the customer waiting area of an auto dealership waiting for a part replacement and oil change. I am finding more and more I hate sitting around strangers.

Most of my friends have no idea what I deal with and you find that you feel you have to just suffer in … Continue reading I’m overwhelmed
In my office I work with a young kid. Guess he is what’s called the generation Z group. With him I notice something I really have not noticed with millennials and boomers on back. I notice a disconnect with things from my childhood to his. I find it unsettling in a way. From entertainment and … Continue reading Generational gap

It’s also demonstrates the new Apple iOS 16 feature of being able to grab an image out of a photograph. … Continue reading Memories
As a kid growing up in the 80’s there were a lot of good television shows to choose from. You had shows like Miami Vice, The A-Team, Night Court. Then you had my favorite show to see each week: Magnum, PI. It has everything a young boy could want. Fast car, mansions, adventure, beautiful ladies … Continue reading Magnum, PI
Only 64 more days to 1 year
This morning I realized I had reached another milestone in life post smoking. Today is 301 days since I have smoked a cigarette. Just 64 more days to the one year anniversary. Now to just get off my crutch, the nicotine gum. I probably do not need it at all now. It’s just been my … Continue reading Only 64 more days to 1 year
