Like I said in my last entry it is not as easy writing here as it is in my personal journal. I can say
what I want there and it is a lot easier to edit out stupid grammar mistakes and it is great practice
when I do write. I am a writer but when compared to others I don't. I was inspired by a many a
writer. No I doubt I have 10,000 hours of writing even though I actually have journals that go back
years. Those journals are based on what I call Monkey Mind Bullsh&*! Like you I have a family
who should stand behind me and they do but it is what they do and their actions and inaction's that
cause my inaction's due to serious dwelling on things I have no control of which includes lessons
from my very bad past that I all ready learned from. I might come back make a couple of sentences
out of the previous one but due to the the work it takes to keep a double space I probably will not. I
would like to say that I enjoy being a househusband but I don't. What takes my wife seconds takes
me a few minutes what takes her a few minutes takes me a half hour. Some of the things my wife
does fast like her method for doing dishes is great if we owned a dishwasher but depending who has
been over for dinner with various mouth disorders makes me retch at the thought. My bathroom
laundry that I fold takes longer but looks more presentable if we had company that needed to use a
facecloth or a towel.
Next year I will be 60 at this time. I don't feel it but unfortunately I look it. I need to get published.
Yes having a blog is technically being published but when you blog as infrequently as I have who
would even know? Some may look at what I have said because of my Twitter pages. I have tons of
Twitter followers if you happen to read this because of Twitter please leave a message. A narcissists
I might be but no harm will come to you for knowing me my head is not that big. You have to be a
bit of a narcissists to be a writer and have at least the sign of an ego. I could write a novel about me
or make believe it was someone else would you? I have had quite a life but I don't have a legacy. I
was bad, my wife says I was a P which is the opposite of a C neither of which do I think makes for a
good title or a name to call a male or a female. Just keeping you on the same page.
I have never traveled around the world but I have been all over this country and there I places I
have not seen that I would still like to visit. Last year I traveled to and through 26 states in 22 days.
I could have used this map by Kerouac:
map as I drove through states I never been to before using the Northern route.

As much as I wanted to rejoin my friends on the Mother Road/Route 66 in Joplin MO it was not in
my best interest to leave my very humble home. Those of you who know me know everyday is a
struggle I do not care to admit to. After a frightful fall down the front stairs of my home I felt as
though that my 30's youth I boasted reminded me to cherish and to be grateful each time I made it to
unlock the door to the minivan in the driveway that has taken me from Revere Beach two blocks
away from where I live to the parking lot on the Santa Monica Pier over three thousand miles from
Wow! It is more difficult trying to make an entry on this blog versus writing in my journal where I
should not be editing anyway.
Sorry for the sound of regret but I'll have to change the name of this blog to "60's The New 40's". I
need to stop putting off today or yesterday what can be done by committing to do some serious
writing. I can write you know.
