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 Grandkids and Others
It looks like summer is gone and it really is fall. We have had a light frost, but not killing. That looks like it is coming next week. We are doing our late season fall work in the garden. The late plantings are done, and we are cleaning up. We got the new garden privacy screen up. The last Flea Market of the season is behind us. We are settling into a shorter day fall season lifestyle. I am hoping we can get to the apple orchid with Lukas and Levi before it is too late. but we shall see. Every growing season seems to get shorter, and I struggle more. Our summer fall season has been Good, But that is what I want to write off.
Good, What was told to me and needs to be repeated to the grandkids, is that Good gets in the way of Great. For most people I think they struggle to become Good and well that is Good. But if you stop at Good, If you settle for Good you will never know if you could be Great at your endeavor. In that way Good is the enemy of Great. The focus should be on becoming Good then going on to Great. If you do not achieve Great you can fall back on Good knowing you have pushed the Good envelope to become Great. Grandkids don't settle for Good shoot for Great, Don't limit yourself too Good.
I know I am aging, The other night I thought of something that I wanted to write about. and you know how that goes. It's the middle of the night and I think I will remember it and write it down in the morning. Well it did not make it. It was important I thought to write about, for the Grandkids. I am hoping it comes back to me at some point. I need that pad and pencil at the bed. There I just took the time to put the pad and pen at the reach of the bed.
We were going to go north today but it was just too nice of a day to spend it in the van traveling. So were stayed here and did get some good things done in the garden before we had showers about 1:00. And guess what I know have found the time to write you. I am glad we did not leave as planned.
I hope you have a Blessed Evening
