    Morning All - I wish I could be a lazy rat today. Instead, I've got an early delivery to make, and an all-day install. Luckily, no rain forecast. I'll take some of that coffee!

    I don’t think most folks realize how cold it is here with the fog. Yeah, yeah. I know. It’s only 40. But, it’s a soaking wet 40, because the air is saturated.

    Living in a chilly cloud sucks. Brrr.

    Plus, I can’t even see across the yard, and it ain’t but 1/2 acre...

    Peace,

    I own 7 pairs of socks. 5 pair of tube socks for boots, and two pair of wool socks for alpine time.

    I am wearing a tee, a long john shirt, a flannel, and a nylon shell for the wet. Just pants and no shoes. Beret on the top.

    I have had to wring out my beret already. Hahaha. It’s FOGGY!

    It’s funny about my shoes. I got sandals and sandals and sandals. Mostly huarache types.

    I got a couple pair running shoes, which I use for coaching.

    And I got steel toed boots and cowboy boots. Real riding boots, too. I’m getting ready to make a wooden horse for my buddy’s sadlle. He’s got one of those crazy, ornate Mexican saddles belonged to his abuelo.

    I sometimes wish I had need/money for horses. Really, I’d love a team of draft horses to work. That’d be nice...

    Right at 40 here also and cloudy, but our clouds aren't at ground level. Rain moving in tonight and tomorrow. Radar shows rain not far north of here in Arkansas.

    Boats I got. Three that need to go, and, like, NOW! Green skiff is being revamped for this year. I will most likely row more than anything in the future. Unless I move.

    Which I could be forced to do a thing anytime. More than horses to work, I suppose I’d like a home of my own. I suppose if I worked harder and made better choices...

    When I built my barn/shop, I bought the lumber from a father and son run sawmill. They said some of their logs came from a fellow that logged with a team of draft horses. I saw several people plowing with mules around my place in Georgia when I moved there. Most of that land is covered with subdivisions or McMansions now. I owned a horse to ride for probably over 1/2 of my life.

    When I was just a pup, there was an old man in our neighborhood that had a span of mules, a plow, a sickle mower and hay rake. I took to following him around as he looked for work. That was before they locked everybody up that befriended children. He taught me how to harness those mules and as I got a bit older he let me plow, mow and rake hay. I was not big enough to put the harness on them so he would help me. Now if he was here he would have to help me again. Things change as they stay the same I guess.

    Morning guys, another day in paraflockingdise here still raining and that means a couple of more days of this fun stuff for me. Oh well as Lefty sez, that which don't kill ya, don't kill ya. A shot of something in this coffee would be nice.

    Morning All,

    Another fun filled day ahead. A bad switch on my portable chopsaw aborted my delivery y'day. No replacement parts to be had in town. But I think I've found an old one I kept around. I'll plug it in today and see if it's good.

    Had an interesting afternoon y'day. Parachuted into some drama. Kevin, you'll be familiar with the story, methinks.

    Headed for home for a bit while some glue dried, I stopped by the neighborhood library. Leaving, I drove by the backside of the library - a quiet residential street - and and past a skinny kid in a wheelchair nosed into some bamboo. By the time I got to the corner, it sunk in that something wasn't right. Backed up, rolled down the window, and asked if he was ok. SHE lifted her head and asked if I could drive her to the next town. I said yes, got out, and helped her into the truck. Too tall for her to manage. She was weak, and had tremors (like my b-i-l who has Parkinson's). On the ride North, she just said she's gotten stranded, and needed to connect up with her friends in Vancouver. Got there and it turned out the three women were basically homeless, had scraped together enough money for a cheap motel room the previous night, and were scrambling to figure out where they would stay that evening.

    I had to get back to Portland to pick up my sweetie at 5 pm, so the tale is unfinished. Two of them went off on the bus to fetch another friend. My new friend Jen had me drop her at the mall while they continued to try and figure out a place to sleep (it's warm, there are bathrooms she can use, and she might try some panhandling). Her friends would come for her there. I left with with the couple of bucks I had in my pocket, and a hug.

    But it reminded me how bloody hard it is to be broke. With no resources... EVERYTHING becomes complicated. It's frustrating, disheartening, and exhausting. This was a woman with no family. Had been a college athlete on a volleyball scholarship. Had an asthma attack and didn't have her inhaler close enough. Ended up in a coma for three days, and awoke to a whole new existence: unable to walk, weak, with severe tremors. And on her own with few resources to draw on. She draws SS disability... but it's not at all enough to get by on. I know this to be true, because my b-i-l is in the same boat, and he only gets by because we and some other relatives help him financially. With no universal health care, and a limited safety net, the U.S. really is barbaric in some ways - when compared to some of the other developed countries.

    Sounds familiar... Jen’s lucky she doesn’t have a spouse and kids to worry about, too.

    Thanks for doing something for her. Sometimes I wish I could hug you, G.

    Didn't you spell 'slug' incorrectly? <G>

    Seriously, all we can do is what we can do. We just need to remember to do it instead of being self-absorbed ALL of the time. A lesson I continue to try and learn.

    Oh, no, I don’t punch people, anymore. My hands are lumpy enough. I’m straight joint manipulation and strangulation, nowadays. Really. Small joint stuff is chicken, but highly effective, and large joint manipulation? Well. Hehehe.

    I try to never toot my own horn, and I make sure I never pee backward. I don’t forget where I was, and what it’s like to be despondent and alone. I have nothing materially to offer, really, but what’s mine is everyone’s.

    None of this belongs to me, anyway. What a stupid notion.

    Peace,
    Robert
