What a week!
Gonna take Anne Lamotte and Brenda Ueland’s advice and just start writing. Get the tangled thoughts down on paper and worry about sorting them out later….or not. 😉
Wife has been gone all week and won’t be home for a couple of more days.
What can I say?
I feel a little guilty.
She is , helping out with the grand kids and I am enjoying peace and quiet, steak, morel mushrooms, and catching up on things around home.
Our second grandson was born with multiple disabilities (he’s 7 now) and was in for a 48 hour observation this past week. Doctor wired his head to a machine to monitor brain waves, while being confined to a 12 by 16 ft hospital room.
I am surrounded by death and disease.
Makes me appreciate my life currently even more...
Sort of like this song….
I feel like I’m a seal on a rock, hanging out with my fellow seals, watching great white sharks picking off my peers.

Young man who worked for me from 2005-2007, was found dead a month ago. Not at liberty to tell you more. What a shocker.
My neighbor, who is about my age, was diagnosed with an aggressive type of blood cancer last month. Five year life expectancy. (tops).
After they started chemo he came down with a gall bladder attack. They were trying to hold off doing surgery, because he currently does not have an immune system to fight off infection. I heard today, they are going to do surgery in the next couple of days anyway, as they still look for a bone marrow donor.
On my work front, my latest employee, decided to quit on me this past Tuesday, without any notice. I stopped by his house to pick him up, and he would not come to the door, he shut off his cell phone and well, that left me with a lot of work, and no employees currently 🙂
I am not whining, just not sure what to do next to find good help.
I am currently on a Jules Verne kick. I’d read Journey To The Center Of The Earth, and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea back when I was in Junior High, but it’s been so long I forgot most of it. I picked up a used hardcover with 7 of his stories on Amazon last month. Discovered the guy was a prolific author…. Did you know he wrote over 50 different books?
What I am liking about Jules Verne is, the stories are a complete escape. I don’t watch TV, rarely watch something on-line, so after a big day on the construction site, 10 minutes with Captain Nemo and I’m ready to hit the sack.
Work the past month has been more physical than normal. Lots of climbing. We just finished our 4th roof a week ago, and this week spent three days ripping siding off an old farm-house. Two of the perks when I’m doing this kind of work are, #1 I sleep like a baby, and #2 I lose weight without even trying.
Apologize for the randomness of this one.
It is a pretty accurate snap shot of my brain this week. DM
