It's been a while...

Hey blogbrethren and um, It's been a while, thought I'd drop a few lines your way. Have gotten moved and loving the new house. It's starting to feel a little more like home now. Lots of space, unlike the shack I was in before. Couldn't do it without Stacey. Thanks Hon. She works her tail off at her job. I'll be back in and out more often. Toodles, gang.

New Camera...

Yes, it's me entering the digital age. A little bartering, swapping, and trading netted me a Kodak EasyShare DX-4530...Here's some of my early efforts in monkeying around with the settings and such. K, these flower pics should be something you'll like, I'm not sure what they are, but the hummingbirds sure like them. That bumblebee does too...

Hindsight being 20/20 like it is...this isn't making fun of anyone, heavens forbid, but it just sounds so WRONG these days...

And there isn't even a good comment for this one, I mean, who comes up with the names for this stuff?

This has got to be the weirdest thing I've ever seen...

Getting with the strangeness again...

You ever just get into one of those weird modes where you want to post silly stuff? Here's mine for today. I can't figure out where it's from, it's not US. Can't quite make out the language on the Expressway sign, just above the word Expressway...anyhoo, enjoy this little romp with a lesson on jealousy, scorn and loss...canine style...

Huzzahs and random strangeness...

First off, good wishes to K at ksquest. She's having a devil of a time with MRSA. Just send her some good thoughts. She's a heck of a lady. Now for the random strangeness...just some weird pics, I'm in that sort of mood. Enjoy. Language is a little racy, but sometimes my computer makes me feel that way...

This is just wrong...

But you can't stop watching a lava lamp....But it's not really making fun of the guy, he posted himself, hell, we're about the same size...and I think I own a pair of those skivvies!

Just Chugging Along

Haven't posted in a while. Just thought I would drop in and see how my new blogbrethren are faring. Everyone be sure to click the K's Quest link on the right hand side. Very interesting life indeed. K, you rock! Not too much to report here. Heading to Florida in a few days for some R&R. Oh, hey K, I planted the package in a Jiffy Greenhouse, I'll keep you posted on the, back to your regularly scheduled blog-surfing.

Mommy make the bad man stop!

Remember my post about the tool at the old job? Well, the &^()*&^^ has been holding my check for 2 weeks! I said I wanted it and him, being the sphincter that he is, said that he wanted to know how I planned on paying for what I owed HIM!
Apparently, he seems to have invented the notion that I stole 10 pizza delivery bags and 5 cartop signs from him when I quit. The store doesn't even have that many. When I asked how he came up with that, he said I TOLD HIM I STOLE THEM. What is with this guy? I told him to sue me. I can get a nice defamation of character and slander countersuit against him. It's only $126.00! What an ass...

On a side note: I have to get this out there...DO NOT SHOP AT PAPA JOHN'S PIZZA IN DANVILLE, KY! They (the franchisees) are very spiteful and like to intimidate you with money. They know they have it and you don't and love to dangle that carrot in front of you. Spend your money elsewhere.

Kentucky weather is predictable this winter...

Well, if it's Monday, it will be the nicest day of the week. All this winter it's been bad weather Tuesday. Today it's warm and 72 if not a bit windy, but cold's a'comin... storms, snow and crap the rest of the week, until Monday that is...K! I want to rent a pup tent space in your backyard!

I was tired....

The presidential quote below should have read: "As bad as this world is with religion, can you imagine the jungle it would be without it?" I claim fatigue on the error...sorry folks...back to it this morning, have a good day in the blogosphere, where the weather's always sunny and folks say "Hello" when they meet...

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Oh yeah, now I remember...

Well blogsters, if you remember the last post, I was about to start the "new" old job back...forgot why I had left...*smacks forehead*. Forgot about the right-wing extremism. The last time I worked for him he literally asked me, and get me ACLU on the phone, if I was a Christian. It's one of those things where you ask yourself, "If I answer 'no', for instance if I were Muslim or a Jew, what would the outcome of the interview be? Do you just keep it under your hat and just smile and nod because you need the money? I know, legally, he can't ask you that question, but the way this guy is, he wouldn't hire you if you weren't. He has speakers up all over the store that play the local religious radio station constantly and he WILL NOT let you change the channel, ever. I really don't know what to do in those type of situations but the smile and nod. Am I a Christian? I once was, I'm in the open-minded state of being right now. As a past president, whose name escapes me at the moment, once said, and I'm paraphrasing a bit: "As bad as this world is with religion, can you imagine what a jungle it would be without it?" Just don't presume I'm a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jew, or if I worship the Holy Banana Tree on Monkey Island...(edit: check out for my spoof) I'm there to make product, sell it and go home at the end of the night, hopefully a bit richer. There, rant complete...

Nose to the grindstone...

Well, it's back to work this morning after about a 2 week hiatus. Just couldn't bear the last job after the General Manager quit and the owner's son took over the operations. He is just such a tool. He is addled by drugs and alcohol and is just a terrible person to be around. They asked me to step up to GM, but I just didn't want that job with those here I was, back on the job market, but an old employer stepped up and offered me a managerial position where I used to work, so it's back in the saddle. I'm headed out this morning, I'll post later how it went...

Giving credit where it's due...

Looks like the author of "Grandfather Oak" is someone named's the link:

And now for something completely different...

Well, I'm going to get all existential on yer arses...I've got some poetry, some are mine, some aren't, I'll let you know the without further ado..."The House" and it's mine:

The House

Walking thru the woods one night
I happened on a house,
No fire burned, no lights were on
It was as quiet as a mouse.

It seemed no one had lived there
for quite a long, drawn spell.
The bushes long neglected,
the green grass long as well.

Who had lived inside these walls
No bigger than a shack?
The lives it sheltered called to me
My mind went racing back...

Who were the children long ago,
playing on the swinging tire?
Whose hands, cold with frost
Were warmed around the fire?

What joys and sorrows came and went
in this house upon the hill?
I have no answer to this question
And perhaps I never will.

It's secrets hidden to me
Beneath these scraps of tar and wood.
For time has shadowed all it's past
Beneath it's velvet hood.

As I leave this quiet place,
It's secrets still to know
I feel a little sadness
For these long forgotten souls.

Well, there you go on that one...Let's keep things going with my very own "Brick by Brick"...psychological evaluations in the comments,

Brick by Brick

I build my wall, brick by brick
Never too high, never too thick.
There are no doors to get inside
Because in here, I try to hide.

Walls are hard to build
When you try to build alone
But it seems that they're the strongest
For it is our mind's home.

These walls aren't made of stone,
No mortar holds them fast
But imaginary walls
Are the one's that are built to last.

And sometimes someone comes along
Tall enough to look inside,
So I build my wall even higher,
So inside I can hide

Will one day someone come along
To chip away my stones?
For I fear all they will find inside
Are my cold and lonely bones.

Well, there you go, my emo moment for the day...Smoke break anyone? No? Good, let's press on...let's hear from the "Night Hunter" from my tweested mind....

Above the trees he soars
in the cold, night air
Leather wings beat thickly
stirring the fallen leaves.

He lands upon the craggy rock twin curls
of smoke plume from his nose.
Shepherds in the valley below
Backs to a log, drifting off
Oblivious to the eyes upon them
Hungrily staring at the herd.

Finally the moment arrives
Leaping from the precipice
Wings outstretched, eyes focused
The only thing betraying him is
The rush of air over his wings

One sheep raises it's ears
To a sound bred in him to fear
A plaintive cry escapes from him
as he is lifted to the heavens.

Forever silenced in the
Massive jaws of the beast.

Quiet reigns again in the glade
Shepherds hurrying the flock
His hunger sated, he returns home
Until next he feeds...

Lock up the sheep! That one was a little weird, but I've got a book full of these things and I'm a-posting them...Here's my "Ocean Blue"...

Ocean blue
Lapping at the shore
timeless in age
Secrets hidden in your depths

What grand life
you harbor in your busom
what hidden treasures
do you have yet to reveal?

All things spring from you
Watched over by Poseidon
Does our future lie within you
As surely as our past?

My toes have only dipped
into your glory
Many answers
can I question...

Keeping the ball rolling, here's my "Mother Earth"...

Celestial Orb
Spinning slowly
Dynamic sphere
Hurtling thru the ether

Ball of life
Mother to us all
We dig into her
She cries out in pain

She will gather her strength
Heal herself
Or simply shrug us off like a pest
Time will tell...

My fingers are falling off...but finally, here's one that isn't my original, author unknown, but I like's called "Grandfather Oak"'s kind of pagan-y, but I'm open minded, are you?

Grandfather Oak

Rooted deep in Mother Earth
The oak guards the circle
A great one in a grove of natives
Standing tall and proud and wise.

He has seen much, season after season,
He has captured the rain
Danced in the breeze,
Recovered from the flames of a runaway bonfire.

Regenerated limbs and leaves
His spine is bent, but solid
His strength is unsurpassed

He is the watcher in the night
He has borne witness to our rites
Drank of our wine Partaken of our smoke
Trusted us with his mysteries

He has been a refuge for
A nest of newborns,
A multitude of spiders and webs
A staghorn fern as wide as his span
An orphan squirrel with tiger eyes.

Grandfather Oak, we honor thee
And all your cousins in distant forests
Old growth holds ancient wisdom
Rooted deep in Mother Earth..

Well, that's it for today...enjoy!

Once upon a time...

First blogging attempt, in here anyway...I don't feel I have a very interesting life for anyone to be entertained by it, but I suppose it takes all types for the world to spin 'round.
Won't be a very long post today, just trying to set things up...
