For whatever it's worth, I woke up on Friday, May 15, 2020 and came to a realization...
Just click on it to find out!
It's perfectly safe!!!
I launched this sheet on Friday, May 15, 2020.
This first section will contain whatever I decide to write in here during the weekend.
For starters, this Sheet will be added to through May 17, 2030 when May 15 will fall on a Wednesday, May 16 on a Thursday, and May 17 on a Friday.
Be watching this sheet all weekend long during which time I'll be filling up this first section...
May 17 has just begun, and I never added anything new here on May 16, but I can tell you a little more about what I've come to realize, and that is that I need to go viral due to my centrist, voice-of-reason take on life as well as my
Forrest Gump kind of life
where I find myself right in the middle of this or that event (sometimes, by accident, and, other times, on-purpose).
Anyway, I've ended up not filling this part in very much due to a lot of reasons, so, I'll be continuing my thoughts in the next part...

It truly IS time that I begin to add to this Sheet -- especially, when I've just finished TWEET ing THIS .
I have another busy day ahead of me -- in fact, so busy that I'm postponing my original plans for going out to run errands until Friday (although I might go out for a very short time early tomorrow but will have to get back to attend a free online motivational lecture that begins at two.
Saturday, June 27, 2020
As it has turned out, I haven't actually gone out yet. According to the weather reports, the best day to go out will be on Tuesday, so I'm planning to be in here doing various catching-up activities between now and then.
I had thought that I would have had AJ's Groovy Igloo all ready to do some road-trippin' by now, but I can see that this won't be the case. I'm now thinking along the lines of road-readiness taking place sometime between July 16 and July 21.
However, I'm still hoping to go on an excursion before then just for a change-of-scenery. I have some thoughts re: this but no definite plans. When it's time, it will be time.
Right now, I want to add a link to a tribute to Larry 's sister, Janice, who passed away on June 22.
She and Larry had just talked the night before, and the last words she said to him were "I love you, Larry." Their plans had been to go out to eat that Wednesday.
2020 has turned out to be one of those years when more people seem to pass on than usual. I'll be writing about this in the near future -- unless I become one of those people between now and then. My plans are to experience celebrating an age containing three digits (which would require my hanging around until December 12, 2052), but nobody knows for sure how long we'll be here before it's time to pass on.
I've lived long enough that there has been a growing number of people whom I wish were still just a visit, phone call, message, and/or a snailmail/email away.
Many people already know about my friend, Mike, who drowned on May 31, 1969. Even now, I think of him often. We were both only 16 back then.
I'll be writing more about him -- as well as about those years where more people seem to pass on -- in the time to come.
Before then, I'll be writing about some other things. For now, I want to close in an upbeat way with some pages from my memoirs that will, hopefully, make you LL...
"Fairy White Struts Her Stuff"
"Panty Raid (1972)"
"Date With An Older Man"

Right at this time, I would like to link you to a couple of new places-of-interest:
The website of Christopher Parrish who began a 5-month mission on June 29 to do street ministry in five different cities in five different states . His journey will definitely be one that's worth watching. This awesome man isn't an all-talk-and-no-action kind of guy. Be expecting to hear more about him in the time to come.
If you would like to see a blog-entry I made about Larry and his sister that leads to some wonderful pictures of them and other information about their history-rich family that has been and is still being gathered by their second cousin, Wilma, Click on this link.
Finally, let me introduce you to a very talented singer/songwriter/musician named Brent Bennett . This link takes you to his profile at Reverbnation. That's a great beginning for a shout, but I'll tell you this much now: Today's info isn't going to be the last time I'll be shouting him out.

Sometime back, I wrote a story in response to a prompt given to go with this blog:
The prompt was:
"Would you ever blog for profit?"
This is the blog-entry I wrote in response to that:
"Hi! I'm The Tip Jar Of One Crazy-And-Proud-Of-It PenLady!"
When you read this story -- told in the voice of a piggy-bank named Tipsy -- you will find out information re: where to go to tip me and how. You won't find yourself forced to tip me. Everything is your choice. If you want to tip me you can -- and thanks, in advance, if you do. Even if you don't, thanks for checking it out. Even if you didn't check it out, you've read this far into this Sheet, so thanks for that. Thanks, also, for sharing this Sheet that will be covering a period of time that began with the launching of it on May 15, 2020 and will go through May 17, 2030. ""God Willing & The Creek Don't Rise..."" .
I haven't actually plugged my Tip Jar that much, as I was waiting for the right time to do it.
However -- here on the second day of July 2020 -- I'm now officially saying:
Now that I've said this, I'll continue with my previous train-of-thought...
In short, I wanted to have a more organized Internet presence before I got into holding out the cyber-cup in my cyber-hand. I have so much I want to share, but I'm doing several different things at once.
In the future, I'll be sharing more about that.
One thing I'm doing is writing my memoirs. I already have some of the stories completely finished. Other stories have the places where they'll go in my blog in place. Other places for these stories haven't even been created yet.
Here's the main blog that I'm using for that:
I can't believe how quickly time flies.
Will be needing to go run errands shortly. However, I still have much right here in need of being done before I start out. Someday, I'm going share with you some things I have to figure into when I come and go -- especially, during this New Normal brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
One way to keep up with me and see what makes me tick is looking me up on Twitter and/or Facebook .
Not sure if I'll be running outside errands today or waiting until tomorrow. Still plenty of things to do around here.
Anyway, I've just created a shout-out blog-entry for Brent Bennett whom I mentioned yesterday. You can find it by Going Here
For now, I need to work on some other projects, so I'm going to sign off...

So far, this has been a really neat month. I even got to take a mini-vacation -- but more about that in time. For now, I think I'm going to share all of the blog-entries I've written for my two main prompt-inspired blogs during the first seven days of the month. I hope you enjoy them...
"It's Happened Again!!!"
"Trending At Twitter"
"The Forth Of July"
"Meow Is The Time...Maybe..."
"Childhood Vacation Memories"
"The Changing Planet"
"When The 4th Of July Gets Here..."
"Just Blame It On Those Darn Cats!"
Anyway, I think I'm going to sign off for now, as I have a lot of things to do. Unless something comes up that I absolutely need to be writing in here about, I think I'm going to wait until sometime Sunday to add more to this.
I've got a lot of things to get done, so I'll give you some kind of a progress report -- hopefully, an impressive one -- come Sunday.

I was away from here for a whole lot longer than I thought I would be, due to a lot of different things going on with me. I've been so busy with a number of things that I went into a phase of not doing a lot of writing other than Tweeting; doing status reports at Facebook; and leaving comments here and there.
I also played more Bubble Popp than usual. One thing that I do while playing Bubble Popp is to let my thoughts wander. It's therapeutic for me in that way.
This is one of those times when it's hard to get comfortable for long. Thankfully, I've found a position where I'm reasonably-comfortable and will be able to both write and sleep. The discomfort will pass and, likely, not return again for awhile.
Usually, this discomfort might last for a few days and, then, weeks will pass before it happens again.
How can I describe it?
It's an aching deep within me that sometimes seems to be settled in my bones and other times seems to be settled in my muscles.
Often, my gums get tender in spots right around the same time.
Likely, it's related to a combo of my lymphedema; being on the brink of menopause; and simply from burning the candle at both ends. It's time to slow down and rest -- so, that's what I'm doing.
Monday, July 20, 2020
I fell asleep for several hours and am already beginning to feel much better.
During the first part of the day, I'll be working on some things that absolutely HAVE to be taken care of. Then -- and this is a MUST -- I need to go out and run a couple of errands. Then, it's back home again, and I'll likely not be going out again until at least Friday. This should give me plenty of time for playing catch-up.
I'm feeling even better now than I did when I first woke up.
That's all from here for now.
Be sure to keep an eye on "Hob-Nob With Anderson, IN's Awesome CanMan!" , as it will be getting added to quite a bit in the days to come.
That's all for now...
Tuesday, July 21, 2020
Today is a kind of random day, and my plans are to keep adding to this day on the workshop page for it and then, post whatever has been collected here either tonight or else, if I doze off, sometime tomorrow. This morning, I went through re-certification for my new lease, and all went smoothly there. My rent will remain the same until November.
Anyway, I'll be waiting at least 8 more hours to update this -- somewhere between 8 and 10 more hours before new revisions show. It's now a little before 2 PM, Anderson, Indiana time...
I was invited to read a poem by a Newbie (one of those random things that appear on a list of things to do here at WdC). I really liked the message of the poem and wanted to give it and its author a shout-out.
Astrogirll is on a journey of her own and has been writing a growing number of essays and poems to share what she's been going through. I'm going to leave the rest of what she has written for you to discover on your own, but I wanted to share one more that I've been finding examples of here in 2020 when we all need to be pulling together instead of dividing up.
Thankfully, I've not experienced this personally -- not to any great degree anyway -- but have still seen some examples of it going on.
I believe that reading "Life" will inspire other stories, essays, poems, etc. to be written.
There is an essay of my own that I want to write, but it's very controversial, and it needs to be written in just the right way. It's one of those stories where not everything is black & white but, instead, has a lot of shades of gray in it.
Before writing that story, there is one I'm going to write about how we have been getting groomed for many years and how it has been happening.
Or, perhaps, the controversial essay is the one needing to be written first.
I'll know when the time is right.
My two-word motto related to parts of my life I believe are soon to change is:
July 21 is almost over, and I'm going to finish it off by sharing two interesting (in my opinion) blog entries I've written...
"To Tweak Or Not To Tweak...That Is The Question..."
"The Year Was 1957..."
That's all I'm going to be adding while it's still July 21.

It has been awhile since I've updated this Sheet -- and, also, quite awhile since I've updated This Blog .
One thing you'll find with me is that I'm doing a lot of multitasking and focus on other parts of my life (both online and in real life) for awhile and, then, get back to working on projects like this one. One of these days, I'll have the time to go into more detail.
For now, I' going to share a couple of links with you. The first one goes to something I wrote yesterday...
A Loaded Facebook Status Report I Created On June 1, 2020 (Over Two Months Ago)
The following one goes to something I wrote today...
Today -- August 5, 2020 -- Is The 90th Anniversary Of Neil Armstrong's Birth!!!
That's all I have time to do for now as Real Life is calling me to give it some TLC -- and other parts of Cyberlife aren't quite finished with me, either...
This is how I roll...

We are now into the month of August, and a whole lot has been going on -- both with the world in general and with me. One of these days, I might get you completely caught up. What I'll say at this time is that I've been completing some projects and laying the framework for other projects. Based on both the weather and the number of things I need to do right here at home, my next trip out into the world beyond the grounds of my apartment building will be taking place this coming Wednesday. Unless plans have changed, I'll be going to a meeting related to the legal matters that have been a part of my life for years this coming Thursday.
Anyway, today I'm going to be busy with a number of things and will be adding progress reports to my workshop copy of this Sheet. But I won't update this Sheet with each and every change I add. Instead, I'll do about two updates during the rest of this day.
At this time, I want to share some interesting blog-entries that have opals as their theme. These writings are the candidates for the B.C.O.F. (Blogging Circle of Friends) Blogger of the Week Contest.
I've already voted -- and it was a challenge to decide which one to choose because the entries were all so good.
Here are links to all of them so that you can read them for yourself.
I was going to enter this contest as well but ended up running out of time.
"DAY 5 Outback"
"August 5, 2020"
For now, I'm going to sign off and see how much I can get caught up today. It's a little after 3 PM here in Anderson. I can't believe how quickly this day has gone by! Only nine more hours are left in August 10, 2020. I wonder how much I'll get done before it becomes August 11. You might be surprised. I've actually covered a lot of ground during the first fifteen hours of this day.
It's almost midnight, and here is my last addition to August 10, 2020:
"Yes! We Are Definitely Living In The Last Days...(Part One)"
I don't know if I'm going to be writing the second part of this Last Days entry sometime tomorrow or another day in the near future. Anyway, I know that I'll be writing plenty on August 11. My work is cut out for me.
I actually had already planned on the Last Days idea earlier in the day, so it wasn't what took place earlier this evening (which you'll read about when you read the blog-entry) that gave me the idea for the title, but it turned out to be very apt...
Wednesday, August 12, 2020
One major thing that I did yesterday was to get this handy page to where it was ready to be open to public view: "Here I Am!!!" .
I then created a Tweet about it that you can read by going here: Click Me!!!
Of course, you will find various other links there that will give you at least some idea of how I spend my time. This might or might not be the last thing I add here today, as I'm going to be busy running some errands later today as well as doing other things that I need to be doing. All I can tell you now is that I'm going to be doing quite a bit over the next few days. I'm beginning to feel more caught up these days when it comes to both getting enough rest and getting my life more organized. The page that I opened for public-viewing yesterday is going to be playing a big role in this, as it not only gets me more "out there" for others but, also, makes it easier for me to get to places I want to go. You'll likely be noticing quite a bit of activity taking place there over the next few days.
Enough said for now...
(Stay Tuned For More...)
