Ya Know, I Been Thinking …

8c198fe43c901fd66c525d6fed333c01aAs a man, I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now, whether I like it or not, makes me “Privileged”,  a racist & responsible for slavery…

I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist because I plan, budget & support myself.

I went to High School, got a degree, got in some college & have always held a job.  But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged”.

I am heterosexual, which according to “gay” folks, now makes me a homophobe.

I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a de facto member of the “vast NRA gun lobby”

I am older than 60, making me a useless eater who doesn’t understand Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat.

I think & I reason, and I doubt much of what the “main stream” media tells me, which makes me a “Right-wing conspiracy nut”.

I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.

I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – not freedom of outcome or subsidies which must make me a borderline sociopath.

I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.

I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly, so I stand & salute during our National Anthem – so I must be a racist.

Please help me come to terms with the new me because I’m just not sure who   I am anymore!

Funny – it all took place over the last 7 or 8 years! If all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with, now I don’t even know which restroom to use… and I gotta go more FREQUENTLY!

Just Nothing Going On Around Here

011I’m telling ya; I lead a very (very!) boring everyday life. Which has it’s good points, to be sure. But. Yeah, but.

I need to take a trip to the Canyonlands or that general area. Wide open desert. Multilayered multicolored rock mountains landscapes. I’m really getting burned out with green.

Garden’s doing good. Already have pea pods. Taters have taken over where they’ve been planted. Maters are starting to grow nice and even the corn (first corn I’ve planted in years) has started to grow.

Thinking I’m going to mount rain gutter to that cement wall behind the house (the one I grow the maters in front of cause they really like the heat) and see what I can grow. SWMBO is trying to talk me into going to Habitat and getting some glass doors and making a greenhouse there. I could do that.

But I already have a butt-ton of other “projects” I’m trying to get done. We’ll see. Still designing how I want to mount the solar panels and do all that for one.

012Field Day is coming up pretty soon. Still need to renew the tabs on the trailer (and might as well do the truck at the same time) and figure out what antenna I’m going to use. Details.

And that’s about it except for SWMBO has me scaired some. She sat down at Walmart the other day and almost fell when I helped her up. Had to take another hold on her and lift her up. She’s getting weak, losing muscle mass and weight in general. And I don’t think it’s the new meds she’s on. And I’m getting scaired for her. Doing anything tires her. Fuck.

Anywho, we’ll get through it. Whatever IT is.

I hope.

But we did have some thunder again today.
