Day 126

May 6, 2017 What would your perfect world be like?

Enough.

Everyone would have enough room in their house for everyone who lives there. Enough money to pay their bills, enough left over for doing fun things with the family, enough in case of emergency, like the car needs new tires, or the washing machine quits and has to be replaced. Everyone has enough food to eat, enough clothes and shoes that are weather appropriate, the list goes on and on.

Enough – that would be my perfect world.

Day 125

May 5, 2017 Write some interesting facts about yourself.

  1. I still live in the same town where I was born, I’ve never lived anywhere else.
  2. I work for the hospital where I was born.
  3. I have never been without a job for the past forty years.
  4. I have an unnatural predilection for red cars. The first car I bought at age 17 was bright red and I continued to buy red cars right up to the car I’m driving now. It is blue, and was too good a deal to pass up. I love it, even if it isn’t red.

Day 124

May 4, 2017 What is your view on religion?

Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religiion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich. Napoleon Bonaparte

If Jesus came back and saw what was being one in His name, He’d never stop throwing up. Woody Allen

Before I start, let me make this perfectly clear. I’m speaking directly to organized religion, not how an individual interprets and practices their own beliefs and and life choices.

I do believe in a God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. I do believe that we’re supposed to love and take care of each other, treat others the way we wish to be treated.

However, I do not attend a church, to not identify myself with any denomination, and feel that organized religion is a scam to take people’s money, and rule them by fear.

Day 123

May 3, 2017 Write about high school.

High school was a pretty good time. I had a tight group of friends, we were the polite kids that teachers liked, I made good grades and didn’t get in trouble. By the time I finished my junior year, I had met all my required courses, so my senior year was all elective classes, so I took every class the English department had to offer.

This summer will be 40 years since I graduated and I still keep in daily contact with three of my good friends from school.

Day 122

May 2, 2017 Something that you want to do before you die.

See Europe – I would love to have the money and at least three months to spend there. If wishes came true, I’d start in Finland, work my way south to Italy and Spain, then zig-zag my way to Ireland.

Day 119

April 29, 2017 – Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
Every April, I actually set a reminder in my phone and my calendars on the computers so I don’t miss the broadcast on HBO. This year, three of my favorites were inducted. Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra, inducted by Dhanni Harrison, George’s son. Pearl Jam, inducted by David Letterman, and Tupac inducted by Snoop. I was overwhelmed a couple of times with the touching stories, pride, and joy from the presenters, and the performances were over the top. My wiener babies even sat and watched it with me, it was truly that good.

Other inductees were Journey – I was upset that Steve Perry wasn’t allowed to sing during their performance. Yes! inducted by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, Joan Baez inducted by Jackson Browne, and Nile Rodgers inducted by Pharrell Williams.

I’m so glad that it’s available on HBO on demand. I’ll probably have to watch it three or four more times.
