Wasn't meant to be a hint but if your friend had tickets to a show somewhere near his place, anď if I'm in the neighborhood anyway at a coincidentally opportune time....😉

Old sucks version 2...
« on: May 29, 2019, 07:02:50 PM »
Been another great few months.  Besides all the shoveling and snow blowing over the winter, tons of other crap to do.

A couple months ago the rough wind blew the garage door apart, and while walking out there with a 2x4 and pack of tools I slipped on the ice and cracked a couple ribs.  Spent a while down and out with that.

And up here, anyone that dies late fall / winter / early spring has to wait to be buried after the snow melts and the ground thaws, so we've been waiting to bury two cousins.  In the meantime, just recently lost a sister-in-law, another cousin, and two close friends.  So, 6 funerals in the past 6 weeks.

And of course lots of business computer and website work needed, and lots of locals needing free computer help.

Along with a ton of time spent 300 miles downstate taking care of the wife's folks.  Have to go back down there in a few weeks.

Thought I was going to have some free time now for a while, but of course another 5 grandkids are having graduation parties over the next 4 weeks.

All of the family and friends lost over the past couple years has been making me wonder.  Why am I still here?  Maybe because I haven't yet written the perfect song.

Still busy with stuff, but I will make a point to stop in here more often to keep up with things.

Oh, and I apologize if anyone thought I might have been in here lately and didn't respond or reply to anything.  The wife had to use my computer a few times over the past couple months, and when the computer boots up it automatically loads these forums, so it might have looked like I was here when I wasn't.

Okay, off to grab another coffee and cig so I can catch up on things here...

And here we had you tagged as some kind of super spy on secret missions all over the world  :P

Good to see you Joomykins  ;D
You just got time to rattle off an ODC and join the battle of the bands if you hurry  :P

Felt like missions all over the world, Neil.  But the only thing I've been spying on is a way to actually be retired and just hang out here at home and in the forums.

Have to check out the current ODC and the BotBs, and everything that's been done while I was gone...

I do want to spend as much time as possible hanging out here again, but I did tell the wife a couple weeks ago that one way or another I'm going to do some things this summer that I've been wanting to make sure I do one last time.  Like go camping, do some boating, play at least a couple rounds of golf, do some trail riding, and some other things.

Over the winter, I talked to a good friend (and close neighbor) about us doing all those things together one more time this summer while we still could, and we decided no matter what else was going on we would do them.  He's one of the friends that died a few weeks ago, so he won't be doing them.  Made me think a lot more about it.

And, after having a fall/winter/spring like that, it really broke me up when I happened to come across and listen to that song I wrote for Glenn a few years ago (The Migration).  Made me sorry I wrote it.

Either way, I'm going to be spending some time doing some things this year, and one of those things includes making some more songs with friends here...

Sounds rough old pal. Like life's been living you instead of vice versa..could make a good song in the right hands.
Take care T.

I'm only in my forties but I'm watching more and more folks pass on. Definitely changes my perspective on what I thought was "important."  I'm sad you're facing these challenges but also kind of happy that you're focusing on what's important to you. And don't feel guilty if it isn't us. We all get it.


Take care.

Thanks, guys.  Just all part of the getting old crap.  The time of life to do the things you want to do while you still can.


but also kind of happy that you're focusing on what's important to you. And don't feel guilty if it isn't us. We all get it.

In addition to some old time fun things I want to do, what's most important Red is spending time with family and friends.  And everyone here has been a friend for a long, long time.  That makes this place a combination of Friends and fun things.  So yeah, I'll be here...  ;)
