Three Score and Ten the Introduction,|
Well here we go, After 50 years I am going to take another attempt at writing. The first time was the Palmer writers correspondence school in 1969. The writing will be not a book that will be written with the idea of being published, But will be a writing of thoughts unencumbered by possible publishing and monetary gain. This writing will be a hybrid of Journal and Reminisce. It is important to me that the writings are my true thoughts at the time, not influenced by any factor. The writing will try to explain how a 70 year old white, male USA citizen now relates to today's world. Is every oldest generation lost in their own world, that they aged into? What do I see, and feel as I age farther. I know I am not normal as in what this world today would consider normal. But I hope I am in the ball park writing the thoughts of a 70 year old. I hope for you to learn to know who I am, As I search for Who I am at 70+ This work will carry on until I am no longer able to think or write. This will be done on a nearly daily writing interwoven with a life's reminiscing. This writing has been in the planning for 10 plus years. and I have now made it to this starting point. This writing is dedicated to My Wife The Kitten, My family, My grand children, Lukas, Levi, Luis, Lydia and Sonora Pearl. I thank you God that you have allowed me to have your Three Score and Ten Time.

Hello Grands and All Others
Grandma drove me down today to get a hair cut. It went well. Yesterday we went to Sussex to deliver some paper items for consignment to an auction. Your I need to start the liquidation process. The process gives me purpose during this winter season. I am now working on our 2022 end of year bookkeeping. I try to know what we spend our money on during the year. It is a insightful endeavor. Next I will do our 2022 income tax filing. I now use a internet program that makes things easier. I want to be done before outside work starts. But now all things are difficult. I need to stay busy or I will get overly depressed due to my eyes. I can only read a book with difficulty. It is the worst when it gets dark outside. I am wearing polarized sunglasses for glare. We are going to turn down a flea market that we normally would do. It is a very demanding flea market and I do not think I am up to doing it. On a bright note we have flowers blooming outside, Winter Aconite. So spring is going to come. I wish I had planted more of them, Maybe next fall. This week we have a lot of errands to do. then Sunday evening is the spring ahead time changes. We are going to do 15 minutes over four days to hopefully make the adjustment easier. I don't need another stroke like happened at the last time change. I don't like or want or accept change easily. It is my personality type. I will write again soon, Stay Blessed, Grandpa
