Survivorship

Nothing to amount to much as far as a blog entry this week. I think, instead, I will sit out in the early light and soak up some sun. I guess the rest of the country is freezin’ and we are expecting 77 here this afternoon. Sucks to be them! So I will sit out with Vela Von, some coffee , a good pipe and think about many things.  Mainly because I can.

The precarious state of continued employment in the shale oil fields, the looming war in Syria, Washington .GOV heinous,criminal BS and the fact we even tolerate it, good kids and my sojourn on this earth are all on my mind.

Our time here is so brief.

It is no secret I have been married 4 times. I doubt there will be a fifth. Entirely by happenchance I discovered yesterday EX #2 passed in 2014. She was 54. We parted ways well over 30 years ago with no kids to perpetuate the tie. Even so, the realization of her death has occupied my thoughts. She was a good woman and her obit said she worked with special needs children.  Yeah, a good woman.  The first EX died in 2009; she was 53.

I have been at the EXIT door several times in my life, mostly by my own doings.  Somewhere; when the coin was tossed, it came up heads for me.  So I am still here on this Sunday morning to enjoy the warm sun and the Cardinals fussing at each other over in the puckerbrush.

Makes a man wonder why.

    Like you I had said “I do” four times. Never say never. 😉
    Thankfully this time I hit the jackpot. No. 5 is 18 years along the road and still fun.

    Morn’n Andy,

    My third wife. Sometimes I wish I had met her when I was younger but I know that we wouldn’t have hit if off then. I was much too stupid and immature. We have to feel and learn much before we can love I think. Took me over 40 years to get to that place. I am so lucky now. My wife is my best friend, confidant and soul mate.

    Lost a good friend this past weekend. The worse thing about getting older for me is loosing so many friends and family. And yes, the best die young.

    Just noticed one of the pictures flashing on top on the page. It’s of your ex with I believe a 30 cal. m1 carbine. That was my first center fire when I was about 10. Great brush gun and a good hunting rifle for a young guy hunting coastal deer and wild pigs.

          True enough. The M1A/M14 is just scaled up quite a bit
