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.
I have been wanting to write all day, but other things went ahead. It is only 4:30, Had my main meal of the day Zucchini Fritters and and a radish sandwich along with cottage cheese. It was good but now I have fallen asleep for a half hour. That never used to happen. I would eat and run again. With no time to fall asleep. My how the years have changed things.
At the north location last week we did get the To Do List done plus a few extras. We got close to a freeze up there. We still have some flowers I would like to see one more time before freeze. We put the hummingbird feeders away for the season. We purchased one new feeder as a replacement feeder for next year, How is that for optimism. We now put out Bird seed and Suite at this time. Next up for the north, wood cutting. We like popular wood as it does not burn so hot. We only heat with wood in the evenings and let the fire go out when we turn in, But it can get to hot with hardwoods. But we cut more wood cleaning up the woodlot then what we use in a season. We do not go up enough in the winter to burn a lot of wood. I am having a hard time dealing with the snow up there now. It is all I can do to handle the snow down here. So we will go up until the snow gets to deep for me to handle.
As the weather cools down here I will start painting work on the garage. It is revealing how long a project takes me now. I am trying to hire some help for the garage paint. After the roofer this summer I am a little gun shy. I figure I have about 6 weeks of decent painting weather left. I should be able to see it done.
I have an internet auction going off tonight. I does not look good for me at this time with my bids.
Guys, Turn off the chicken coop light!
I will write again soon, Take care all
