Letting the dust settle.


I'm still alive, never fear. Just haven't been around the computer and using the Kindle for posts is just too hard.

If I ever croak, I've written a little announcement of the fact and my wife will just have to paste it into a post here so you will all know.  I would like to sponsor a nice party in cyberspace for everybody when that happens, but alas, unless holograph development accelerates that probably won't transpire.

  1. A cyber funeral would be nice. We could all leave comments in your honor.

    1. Yes. And my holograph could be handsome, too. Not old and overweight! But I would like for everybody else to be able to have their holographs eat and drink too much, and have a good time! A big feast and everybody enjoying themselves is the right kind of funeral.

  2. Three things: 1) make sure you spell my name right in your will and 2) I loves me some HiPowers 3) and books!

    1. If you like High Powers you better bring a fair sized pick up truck! I've been addicted to those for many, many moons. I even have one of the ultra rare brushed satin finish guns with the bronze highlights. I got it at Lejeune the day I went out the gate for the last time. But it has to go into my pyramid with my other treasures, for the afterlife.

    2. For the right amount of HiPowers, I'll make the trip!

    1. No, nothing wrong on this end. I just had some things to take care of and was too tired to get on the computer for a bit.

  4. My will states everyone has to have a good time at the funeral party.... and they damn well better, I'll be paying for it.
    Death is just a celebration of our life and while we can't help but mourn those who pass, not celebrating is shameful.

    1. I've been to my share of funerals but just stopped going. Living way out here gives me an excuse. If a person does have to go to a funeral, then it ought to be the kind where people tell good things they remember about the person, and there's lots to eat and drink. When people leave to go home they should do it with good memories , and not be all wrought up or upset.

  5. Kindle posting sucks. Glad you are still alive and kicking.

    1. My Kindle is a double edged sword. It's handy, but the internet functions are pathetic. It's just not worth trying to do anything on a Kindle that has to to with the internet.

      I'm good for a while yet, I think. I'm not ready to go. Still have some things I want to get done first.

    1. They are, and they can count on me. I try hard not to let my friends down or leave them in the lurch.

    1. I've got no plans to go anywhere in short order. Unfortunately, a lot of the people I went to high school and college with are no longer around , and I'm no Spring Chicken. Too bad I was born a guy. The women in our family live into their 90's. The men start checking out around age 64.

      Your the Ferret King.

      You will live a long time. Just keep that heart moving and the fat from building up. Do your walks and stuff a little more often and on flatter ground.

      Myself, with the back injury and knee injury I have. I cannot walk very far, nor can I life much weight. That's another reason why I surf. Laying face down on a surfboard supports my lower back and I can paddle all day long.
      I have been surfing the past two days. Theres a big low pressure system in the gulf that's been giving us some decent waves.

      If I move to West Texas, maybe I can tie the fin of the surfboard down to the inside of a "stock tank" next to a windmill and start to paddle.

      I did find 647 acres (a section) outside of Terlingua for $160.000. The possibilities are endless. I can explore my land everyday and not get bored. It may take awhile for me to hike around with my back and knee they way they are, but it would be a new adventure. The nearest neighbors are miles away and there is nothing out there. I have to admit, if I had the cash, I would buy it and go out there on occasion and at some point. Move out there and that would be a nice place to finish up, many, many years from now.

    3. Well, with that much land nobody could move right up on to you. But sometimes more is not better. How could you ever keep an eye on that sized property? It's hard for me to get out and walk my ten acres property line through the forest , especially in summer. But you have to to it or people will steal your timber, cut paths onto your land, and I guess out there the illegals will start living on your place if you don't keep an eye on it.

      Remember too that one day, you'll have to sell it because you will have to move closer to medical care, and that can be tough.

      I guess in the end, you just have to do what you want to do and let the chips fall where they may.
