Night, money doesn't always equal happiness, though yes, it can help. I believe that keeping a positive attitude is the key...even in the worse times. I've been kicked out of the house at 17, homeless, and dropped out of high school and yet retired at 48. I've been up and down so many times it's ridiculous...but I never gave up. And even though retired, it's still a fixed income and I do struggle at times. Mainly my fault as I hate credit cards and try to live cash only.

I know love unrequited all to well. The character Anteros was a somewhat fictional account of me. 52, and still single...one of my biggest regrets in life, I choose career over marriage. Always trying to do the right thing, but sometimes things go sideways in a bad way despite the best intentions. Things have gone good at times, but not always.

The thing is...always try. Because sometimes it becomes a do. (done). And the depressing, or as I choose to see it, optimistic part, is that you can never rest. You must never stop chasing a better life. It's hard I know.

Huh...oddly enough, in attempting to give you advice, I think I gave myself advice...as before, I feel better now.

I wish you the best lady, and for every one else as well.

Dawg, I know that was meant for NightStar, but it was heartening to me as well!
That is some sound advice there Bud!!
Funny too that in telling someone else something, it will ring true to the sender of said advice!
I do that at times as well. Not so much lately as the trying to see the better of sh-_ ty situations does not come easy for me anymore. Too much at one time I guess...... I will however go on. One thing at a time and it will not so much get better, but it will get tolerable......

Night, we have some pieces of a quilt that my Mom made years ago that are looking for someone to use them in a project. Would You like them? Or know of someone who will use them? Let me know when ya can......

I think that sometimes "tolerable" is just something we have to accept. Right along with failure. The failure part though is the hardest to move past.

I have many failures in my life, as we all do, and they are the hardest to deal with. But it can be done. We should learn from our failures and remember them, but not dwell upon them either. Life moves on with us, or without us. That's the sad truth.

And the epic failures should never be repeated. You know, those moments when some one yells, "Hey Y'all! Watch this!" And others whip out their cell phones and cameras.

I said I will do a redo on the ice bucket. Just gettin back on my feet now, and having some liquid refreshment, if ya

catch the drift!


Man I wish I was a lightweight. It is takin too long to feel the goodness of the brew...... LOL!!!!


EDIT: Yes life moves along with or without us. Sad truth there Bud.
I am just hoping that after I go, others will remember me for the good I have tried to impart on others......

I'm fixin' to hit the hay, but I must admit, tonight is the first night I feel good about it in a month. (I think), Maybe there is truth about putting your troubles down on paper, or in this case, the Webz.

And yea, I have a feeling that if every one had a cell phone or camera back in your youth, you'd be an example of what not to do...right along with me.


Have a good night all!

Sadly, this is not what my tattoo looks like any more. Infection, or ink rejection set in, and it has been a painful and tramatic experience. It looks terrible now and has to be redone. A guy at a shop I went to looked and said to wait a year before a redo...... Really, a YEAR?!?!?! Man...... It's just my luck. It Never Fails!! Always something to mess with me. Mother F-_- anyway!!!

We need to remember what is important. If You have no significant other, there will be a day when you do. It will happen.....

I love when you guys are philosophical and share your thoughts and feelings.

Appreciate the compassion and advice as well.

Hope that infection clears up Syx. I enjoyed your drawing! I used to draw hippie dudes too. LOL

I too would be an example of what not to do in one's youth. LOL Who's that band that sings we are the youth gone wild?

Hey!

I am sorry if anyone was concerned about my whereabouts! I am used to just being where I am at, and not being overly concerned about informing people of my itinerary for a given period


In the instance of yesterdays events, I was out the night before with a couple of pals, at a gathering of metalheads at a local, basement level drinking establishment, and so I got home at about quarter to three in the morning, and subsequently awoke significantly later than normal, even for a day off. As such, I spent more time with my local family as it were, helping make the dinner, setting the table, clearing up, all that malarkey, than I did on the internet. We had some family unit television time as well, which is always pleasant.

If my absence caused concern I can only apologise for that, but feel that it is necessary that fellow Sheddites remember a couple of vital things about yours truly.

First of all, I love you guys to bits, and even if I was suddenly missing a few vital organs, I would let you know if anything unsavoury was in the offing in my life. It would not matter how bad things were, I would be sure to let you know if my status was becoming untenable within the normal parameters of my life. No force on Earth, not bullets, blades or bubonic plague could prevent me from doing so. I am one tenacious, hairy, ornery bastard when I want to be.

Second, I am unused, and may never become used, to the idea of letting people know where I am, or going to be, at any given time. I have great love and appreciation for the comradeship of every single last one of you, and you ought to know that by now
. However, I am also a being of spontaneity, chaotic of mind as often as I am capable of staggering logical cogitation. I am used to wandering free, without warning or permission, moving unseen through the world like a ghost of a shadow. Hell, members of my household can barely tell when I am home, so soft is the fall of my feet about the home. If I am not around on a given day, or for a certain amount of time, you need not worry over much, and I would bid you not take it at all personally.

In summary, whether I am hanging out with my local family, or out at a friends place, or just plain old knackered and sleeping in, if I am not around, just trust that I will return. Its as certain as the rising of the Sun.

Kool That True! I know what you are saying. Giving status is a bit time consuming and usually not necessary. Glad to see you posting though, of your loss of time here.

I guess I am not supposed to have online friends............................................................................
Not sure of the outcome of this one guys............................................................
Guess I will be absent for some time to come..................................................................................
I will miss you all.........................................................................................................................
