I know I've forgotten something and it's hard to believe I've either done those things, or was responsible to see they were completed.
There; I feel better. Forty years of doing a lot of things leaves me wondering what the hell I've done with my life. At least I learned something.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
