Sitting here at 2pm in the afternoon trying to get motivated. So far not doing so good. I know a few things for sure. Number #1 of course is the day I met Mrs. Rat was the luckiest day of my life. and Number #2 I was meant to be a desert dweller because when the temperature is in the 50's and there is a wind blowing, I am cold! Not just chilly, cold!
Of course, when it is 118 degrees outside in July I am happy. To each his own I guess. I shoveled my fair share of snow when I was younger and don't miss it. I remember frigid cold. It was what I always figured hell was actually like! Not hot, cold. Now that my arthritis has gotten bad, the hot sun beating down on my joints is great. I like to just sit and soak in the heat. Sometimes I go out back and me and Mr. Lizard soak up some rays together.
I don't know how long this blog will last. I am tired of politics and I don't want to talk about religion. I am just passing through this world and frankly none of us are here long enough to get involved in this stuff. People who think it all matters waste their time fretting about it and assigning it way more importance than it deserves. The same evolutionary mistake that allowed us to be self aware and smarter is also responsible for most of our disabling diseases. A fair trade I suppose. I don't see the great apes worrying themselves to death over politics. They concern themselves with poachers and trying to make little apes! The cows in the field worry about their calves and grass. They are lucky they don't know that being hamburger is their future. Maybe they are better off.
In the meantime, some blogs continue to fret about the loss of their freedoms. I might suggest that the chains that bind them are the ones their minds have placed on them. They wouldn't listen to me so why bother. Worry yourself to death if you wish. None of my concern. We kill each other and claim to all be god's children. Silly don't you think? Fanatics who have driven themselves crazy with delusions and ego.
I just like to sit and be warm, eat regular, hold Mrs. Rat's hand and count my blessings. I don't have the energy or the desire to get all worked up over nonsense so if that is what everyone wants to hear this blogs days are numbered. Unless, people want to know what I did on Hump day and my adventures across the river treasure hunting or my latest shop project. If those things are of interest then keep coming back because that is what I am going to talk about from now on.
Like my profile says: I am just trying to keep myself amused while I wait around to die!
