Welcome to My Personal Blog

It’s been a few years since this blog was active but I have a new work schedule that allows more for the routine of blogging, which helps, plus my recent burst of inspiration from my muse/nemesis – The Rooster.

It is my hope and plan to maintain this with consistency, variety and humour. Your sharing helps. The pages are being redesigned as I experiment and learn new techniques.

Tumblr Conversation Worth Saving

Tumblr Conversation Worth Saving

I get a lot of messages on Tumblr from fake profiles looking for money or information or just compiling contact lists. I never know if it's Russia planning something, or Africa looking for suckers, but they have one rule. Never break character and... two.. two main...

Breaking News

Breaking News

I know what a news break is but I'm not positive I fully understand what breaking news is I had assumed that it is news they interrupt whatever you were doing to tell you about, which should be significant. Breaking news is not always significant It's just current and...

Rain Rules

Rain Rules

The chickens don't want to get wet so when it starts to rain instead of going back to the coop they come up to the house and hang out on the porch under a roof. Likewise, I'm not a big fan of getting wet, so today I made up rain rules which indicate it's okay to feed...

Do Rooster carry rabies?

Do Rooster carry rabies?

I know they don't. Probably. It was a brief fantasy about finding a reason to get rid of the rooster and win the war once and forever. Another attack from the front line happened this morning. I also witnessed the rooster being a bit of a bastard. Not doing his...

And so it continues..

And so it continues..

I was almost at the steps to the house when I turned my back and the rooster. It's usually a safe spot especially since the food is a long way away. I think you may be mad because I didn't bring out a fifth portion for him which for a while I was doing,   It's so...

Afternoon Feeding conflicts

Afternoon Feeding conflicts

I placed the majority portion of food in the elevated area near the door. Because, it had rained earlier, I had to reach to grab the main dish, flip it over and let the water out as everyone came running, eager for their dinner portions.   I set my defence stick...

I was a bit early

I was a bit early

Actually, I'm on schedule but the three remaining birds that are last to go back to the coop in the evening are still out. The rooster and his two first officers. So I sit up at the front seeing if they go inside in the next short while. You don't seem to have noticed...

War Stories

War Stories

Since I don’t have children, it follows that I don’t have grandchildren so I won’t sit around when I’m old telling my war stories to anyone who will listen. That’s what blogs are for. No one has to listen, and in fact no one is really reading this continuing saga but...

Optimistic Friday

Optimistic Friday

It's what keeps life livable. The constant trial and failure and trial again. The belief tomorrow, or even today could be the pivotal life change that sets me on a...

Old man behavior

Old man behavior

I was going to start this vlog with the game, second life. That was my whole opening line. Second life. It occurred to me that that's the kind of thing old men probably old women at some point start to yell out random words like that. This could even be what some...

Heightened Awareness

Heightened Awareness

A few draws on the pipe. Huge clouds. A giggle and an enhanced view. I remember this. Every woman looks prettier. I smile. I wish I could break into a conversation with anyone. Just to talk. To talk rapidly probably. I'm in the fast mode. I'm not used to the pipe. I...

Uranium

Uranium

What if uranium wasn't harmful and deadly What if it's safe, but you click the right trigger the dinasaurs might get a second chance.. Story idea. The world is destroyed tonight at 6, but we've been reliving this day in a loop for 300 years. One child is born on that...
