Why do I feel so confused?
Did I take my happy pills this morning?
Have you found yourself asking questions like these of late? Does down seem up and up seem down to you? WTH is going on here? Why don't I trust politicians or the msm as much as I used to. Do you find yourself asking people, "What would uncle Walter Cronkite do"?
Weren't we getting along with the Russians just a little while ago? Didn't we say we would wipe ISIS from the scene?
Did I go to sleep 5 years ago and wake to find the world inside out?
Weren't we supposed to find that our health insurance premiums would go down $2500? With a better benefit package and all at the same Dr. as before?
Folks, I have deliberately tried to distance myself from the world a bit. Sit back and let it go on it's merry way. Listen to the social engineers and be happy with the new found peace and contentment in my life.
Perhaps you too might be feeling a bit light headed after reading headlines like these,
I don't know about you, but, I'm beginning to wonder if there is any sanity left, or,
Maybe I need to talk to the doc about getting my dosage increased!

A quiet day here in the pecan orchard. Eschewing church for the opportunity to wash, dry and fold some laundry..........floors got mopped the deck cleared of oak detritus the tree rats insist on causing to fall.
The old spotted dog even got washed. Which came as quiet a surprise to her.
When the cabin fever got too bad I drove over to a buddy's and helped him put a new radiator in a Crown Vic he's been trying to get running, while waiting for a title to be found. Nice former police care but hasn't been running in a while. Supposedly all that was wrong with it was the radiator was leaking. Based solely on the fact that it over heated on a drive to town. And the previous owner telling the same story.
Anyhoo the radiator got changed out with only a small amount of skin and blood lost.
Crank the Car. Start filling radiator...........everything sounds good........but it sure seems to take a lot of water. Look under the car to see if anything can be seen.
Water running out as fast as going in. Oh, probably heater core he thinks. So we bypass the heater core. Surely this will fix it. Try it again.......
Probably a cracked block.....
I quietly exit the neighborhood before he can get it jacked up and goes ballistic.
Sometimes you just don't get a break.

First tentative steps back into the Interwebz
Welcome back to the world of the semi-concious. Just over two years have passed since I put anything out to the world. Lots has gone on. Most of it not worth explaining.
Couple of things stick out:
1. I don't care to be a part of the populace that keeps the current system in place as far as my God-given rights are concerned. I'll watch and perhaps comment if I just can't help myself, but, for the most part, consider what happens in Washington, DC, HollyshitWood, and things reported by the MSM as something beneath notice most days.
2. I'll try to give you a taste of rural life and the efforts I'm making to make things grow around here.

A gentle lesson.
Some congratulate Veterans on Memorial Day.
I worked behind the shop and mowed the entire lawn today.
Of all the barbeques and boats bobbing in the lake and all the bottles and cans of beer Consumed...
but, I didn't think much on them.
Please in no way take the next words as rebuke. I was honored to serve my country as I thought I understood it and the Constitution we took oath to defend. I am honored that you think of me as hero. I will always try to be that for you as much as I know how. My time as soldier marked me forever, ill or good. Contributed to what and how I am today. I have an ever greater appreciation of that as the days go by.
But, Memorial day, I'm afraid, will always be a time of sadness somewhat for me, for it is not just the barbeques, or the parades and the politicians high sounding blathering s to masses of ignorant sheeple. Not stupid people, but people who yearn to have someone tell them what to think and do
Rather, I remember the dead I personally know and those I never knew, except through stories and histories, personal accounts of people who did know and serve with them, before my time and now in wars and conflicts both known and unknown, who believed and believe they were/are doing something required and right, whether it is/was or not, whether it truly made a difference, or not.
I remember the mother and father I had to inform that their precious son was not just missing, but gone. Obliterated as if he had never been in the front seat of that Cobra, never ran home from school with excitement to tell of what he had learned that day, never taken his first turn behind the wheel of the family car, mother or father nervously watching, hoping he'd never be in an accident where they were not there to guide and counsel him out of the danger zone.
Remember those I saw fall, salute the boots and helmets, grief for the lose of their camaraderie, shameful for the relief that........there but for the grace of God.........
Mine not the only story, only one........one out of all the hundreds of thousands.
Stories we should remember with sadness and pride, not only on Memorial Day, but each and every day.
