It's just one of those days...brain's in high gear...body won't follow.

My garage sale is set up...ready...now I'm sorta in limbo. I study the calendar, trip over appointments 'n activities....damn! My days are puncuated with odds 'n ends...when to have my sale, when to have my sale??? Should I nail it down and run an ad or just wing it and run on my signs??? Crap...I hate making decisions!

Putting that on hold for the moment, I retrieve my tape measure and begin measuring Zelda's little room to see if monster treadmill will fit...barely...dammit! But it will work...just the treadmill and my keyboard...what a baby room this is, no wonder I feel crowded in here!

Good news is...nice neighbor man said he'd help take the treadmill apart 'n move it. Uh, question...can you put it back together??? "You betcha!" he said. Wow...he's such a nice guy...wife ain't too friendly but they're new to the neighborhood and hopefully she'll loosen up as she gets to know us better.

So I measure and I plan and inbetween...I goof off. It's a great goof off day. I have days when I just can't pin anything down in particular so I dabble 'n daydream 'n just let the day waste away. Gaud I love bein' retired!

I have a very large picture frame staring at me that needs pictures. I am ashamed of myself...my granddaughter got it for me a YEAR AGO LAST CHRISTMAS and I still haven't put pictures in it and hung it up!

"I have good reason"...I say haughtily...I can't make a decision to which pictures I want in it! Therefore, I wait and mull and procrastinate...it will come to me one day and I'll say, "YES! Those pix...those are just the right ones!"

In the meantime, that frame peeks around the corner of my desk at me and says..."Shame on you....." I ignore it.

I wanna write an old reminiscing story for either the 'Good Old Days' or 'Looking Back' magazine...or maybe a livin'-in-the-country story for 'Country' magazine. I use to write those kind of stories here, remember? WTH happened? I don't know if I ran outta material, memory or got tired of the whining of a few that didn't like those kind of stories. Whining? Here? "Surely not!" you say. Now there's a good old story/looking back blog...not a place I wanna visit so movin' on.....

I'm curious if I can still post pictures in the blogs. Duster mentioned Photobucket but my stupid Kodak (which I don't wanna give up) is no longer associated with Photobucket so I can't transfer pics there. I haven't dealt with trying another site yet. I suspect since I can't use emoticons, quotes 'n stuff, I won't be able to post pix. Oh well...I remember the good old days...right...

So...what shall I do with the rest of this day? Maybe I'll do a load of laundry and finish reading my book...or not... Uh, maybe I'd better go eat something...I think my sugar level is bottoming out...

Later ya'll...have a good day, be happy 'n keep smilin'...

Hopefully you get something done. I am glad to hear you may take a shot at some magazine writing. Be sure to go online and get their guidelines. If yo0u haven't already, scan in some of your clips from the Decatur newspaper and include them in your pitch.

I have had zero interest in writing. I guess that is obvious

Write what you live and live what you write, btw the wife feels threatened.

What you do for your days is what makes you feel good. Yeah ok, I know, there are responsibilities, they have to be done also, but when all of that is done and out of the way...it's time to kick off the shoes and have fun.
