Tomorrow is the annual Thanksgiving journey to be with family and friends. The weather has certainly been different.
A late autumn snowstorm came the day before departure. Texts to our daughter gave good news–the highways were cleared.
We are travelling with only one dog. Our Maggie passed away this past August. It makes things easier logistically, but I still miss her antics.
She’d put her paws on the rear seat heat controls. We always claimed she was trying to “roast” her canine brother, Max.
Looking forward to feasting and fellowship. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Posts may be sporadic the next few days.
Master of soliloquies
Dwelling in the past
A little too convenient
The present more comfortable
What was expected to fail–lasted
What was supposed to last–failed
Journeys from the known
To the unknown, and back again
The future called
Excuse me? What?
Say that again
The future called
And you’re not in it!
That’s not funny
It wasn’t a joke
There’s nothing here
That’s because it’s the future
We’re still working on it
And you’re the smartest person on the planet?
Are the jocks, jerks, and jokers
Air heads, gear heads, dead heads
Gomers and Goobers
Hair messers, sharp dressers
Class cutters, klutzes, and clowns
The weird, wonderful (sigh)
Awkward, and wayward
Social lepers and leapers
Teacher’s pets, train wrecks
Studious, moody, madcap
Misfits, braniacs, maniacs
Dweebs, drips, and dorks
You knew, from high school
“Paved highway, rumble strip, shoulder white line”
So, life in general sucks. People lie to each other–never say what they’re really thinking. Everybody’s caught up in making money. You’re tired of being lied to by both political parties.
Sensational headlines without style or substance make you sick every day. Fearmongering, hatemongering–some, so-called journalists would sell their own souls for a story.
We’re two generations apart, so you won’t listen to my advice. So, I won’t offer any–except to suggest that you maintain your health. At your age, I didn’t listen to advice either. Whatever happens, I wish you well on your journey.
I’m surprised it’s taken you this long to realize the truth–better late than never. I will close with some observations; there are very few people that really care about you. I hope that I’m one of them.
You will be much wiser, when the journey’s over. It’s funny–someone told me that same thing a few decades ago.
