Don't know?

You caught me on a bad night.  I don't like living here.  Again.  It's dark and lonely.  The house is so well insulated that you can't even hear a car go by.  I can hear the garbage trucks because they are loud.  That is about it.  When we lived at the other house...the city was alive...and I could hear air planes...ambulances, fire trucks ... ...everything.  I could hear the school buzzer buzzing accross the street when school started. None of it ever bothered me... I was so used to the noise.....and made me feel safe.  Not that I don't feel safe here...but I miss the NOISE. 

I met an old friend at the store yesterday and she asked me how I liked living where we are....and I told her it was like living in a vacumn..... nothing happens here....deer roam freely... so fucking see have seen them all.  Maybe once spring comes around and I can work outside this might change my mind.

Penny's lump...Lipoma has grown larger again.... it always seems to do that around December.  I am so stressed out about taking her to the vet.  If they have to do an operation it might kill her....because I have left it for so long hoping it would stop growing.  It was for a year or two...but now it's getting in her way of walking.  She still runs...but it's on her shoulder and had gone down to her right leg.

I cannot imagine living in this huge house without her.  She is my pal.  We read each others minds...Strange as that seems.  I have never felt more connected to anyone.  It will be a very sad day when we have to part ways.  Then I will have to make some hard core decisions on how I will decide to spent the rest of my life. Gord is never home....and is still doing  his thing....with the business....and his brother....all the time.... 

I thought retirement meant .... having a good time at the end of your life cycle... I guess it takes two to tango.

Multi Tasking

I'm playing my pun game on facebook and blogging at the same time.  Yessss I like a little pressure in my life.  Just like going to work.

It's been a cold cold week here in cold my dog had no more paws to put up while she ventured through the snow....she levittated to the was a miracle! 

Don't have much to report or bullshit about.  Well I could bullshit for hours but how much of it would you believe?

I did however have an altercation with another driver on the road.  I saw him coming up like the speed of lightning in my rear view mirror and he was right on my bumper....looking right and left on how he could pass me.  He couldn't because other responsible drivers in the lanes beside me were going the speed limit.  He tried 3 times before he snuck in and almost caused and accident.  I honked my horn.....he gave me the finger....then I watched him go up the ramp on the perimeter with cop car on his tail......asshole... I just don't get it....the roads are like a skating rink and these fuckers want to die.   Good...just don't take me with you. 

BRB...gotta put another pun in facebook.

Phew ... let's see if anyone likes this one.  My friend Terry ...who I met through Kat years ago... seems to like this.  I will humour her for awhile.  I've been thinking about Kat the last month or so.  I miss that kid so much.  If Kat was still alive....she would totally take me out for the shit I do on the interweb.  She used to correct my English/spelling....drove me crazy to no end.....all in love.....and so much fun and we always knew where we stood.  I always wish I could have been at the bar in Calgary where all her friends said their goodbyes.

Okay ...back to punning hope she likes it...if not...what's she going to do?  ey?....

It's baby talk

I had a whole bunch a stuff to say today (that I did not write down)'s all gone.  In yee olden days of blogging I used to make mental notes all day of what I would talk about.  That ship has sailed. 

I'm still looking for my shoes....

But just to keep you all on track....I am a new grand Rylan Taylor ... 9 foot baby....oops not 9 feet.... 9 pounds 4 ozs. This shit about pounds ounces and length gits me a little bumfuzzled.  Anyway I think he is cute.....but we can't see him because there is ban on visitors to the hospital because of the flu scare around here.  Lisa, Jordan and leeeetttle babooshka are doing well.  She had to stay in the hospital an extra day because that little arsehole ripped her apart.  Lisa now has a twin... heh... Anyway all is well. 

Just found out today my niece.. her sister having a BOY.... two boys!!  In our first try at having babies evar in our family .... it has to be all men.  Never cared for them much... I'll see if I can warm up to them.

Oh yeah....

A new generation..... It is so awesome.  It really is.

Hope Floats

In the olden days before I was retired I never watched movies.  Now I can't stop.  I have watched this stupid movie 456,678 times .... and never get tired of watching little Bernice run after her dad crying her little heart out after her dad left.  I'm going to have to get over this. 

Colorado low is approaching  .... much snow is predicted.  I stocked up on groceries and wine.  Unfortunately I don't have enough of my home brew to see me through.  Christmas depleted my stock.  I hope it's not going to be a huge snow storm....just a blizzard I can deal with that.

Spent most of my day trying to figure out my new Android Galaxy phone.... you know the cheap IPhone knock off? Well I never had a "Smart" phone before so this is a new experience.  My old cell phone...only phoned.  It rang... I said hello...or I phoned and the other party said hello.  Shit like that.  Now I can type a message instead of talking....well my fingers are too big.  Nobody knows what I'm talking about ...
iH .. howd you r?  gottd a neW phooonE far xmus Jeast tRyig It ouut. Bye bYi.  Crazy.... it took me two days to enter my wifi password.

My mouse batteries just died on my computer..WHAT... I just bought it a year ago:).  I didn't have any on hand so I had to use the one's from my toothbrush.  So tomorrow I may have to brush my teeth with my mouse.  Might just as well use his tail instead of floss! Scratch that idea...I forgot .. it's cordless. ahhh technology....ain't it grand.

It was storming out there today ... so I just cuddled up to the computer and annoyed people on facebook.  Found PikMonkey which I had forgot about.....spent way to much time uploading pictures nobody cares about...but that is why I pay the big buck for the amuse myself fuck it. 

I met an older gentleman at Superstore the other day.  I would say he was around 75 or 80. He was handsome even in his older years....and he was obviously an immigrant to our country. He had a accent I couldn't define.  He was kind and generous to the clerks as he put his groceries on the belt.  So many are not.  I couldn't take my eyes off of him.  I almost felt I had known him from somewhere.  After his groceries went through ... mine were piling up on my side (because we bag them ourselves at Superstore) and there are two belts and he had already loaded his into his cart. ... he started to help me with mine.  What a nice man.  I found out he was from Italy and his family had moved here in the late 1970's.  We talked for a bit as we loaded up my cart and he knew what I had bought....and he looked at me...with his worn but beautiful brown eyes... and said that I should never buy Pasta Sauce at Superstore. Datza shit he said.  You makked you self.  Lordy....I know how to make it "youself."  But I get lazy sometime.  He said....your start in the supper it's good.  With that....he took his leave.  I thought he was going to hit on me for awhile....because you know those Italians...but no.... it was all about the pasta sauce.

I must be old..........80 year old men don't even hit on me.

Balonie...retiring to her chambers.

Okay suckers....I'm back!!

So, how have youse guys been doing the last two years?

I've been hanging around facebook just a little too much so I thought I would give blogger another crack.  Whore... I know.  Blogger is like an old boyfriend you dumped when you found someone new.  With my new boyfriend Facebook I didn't hardly even have to touch my keys to talk with him ... all I had to say was "I saw a squirrel."  And the people COMMENTED.  Yes they did ... they wanted to know all about him!  Gone were the days with boyfriend Blogger where I had to stay up to all hours of the night pouring out my guts. For what?  One comment?  I was easily swayed away because I'm all for not putting any effort into anything I do.  So yeah, I had a "short" chat with Facebook and I explained I'm all about cat pictures, three word sentences and all...but dammit I couldn't remember the alphabet anymore.  So I told him I would call him now and again when I didn't feel so wordy. 

The last couple of years have  been busy to say the least. 

I retired early: (I'm sure I have mentioned my displeasure on that here somewhere before) ... but now my displeasurement has evaporated).  I don't know what in the hell I was thinking.  What is so bad about doing sweet dick all?  Or doing whatever the hell you want. 

We moved:  (I'm sure I have mentioned my displeasure on that here somewhere before) ... but now my displeasurement has evaporated).  I don't know what the hell I was thinking.  What is so bad about moving into a brand new house with 3 bathrooms?  Or checking out the Bambi's in the forrest.

I turned 65:   (I'm sure I have mentioned my displeasure on that here somewhere before) ... but now my displeasurement has evaporated). I don't know what the hell I was thinking. What is so bad about collecting over a grand a month for doing sweet dick all?  Other than the fact gravity is no longer my friend because all my body parts are hanging an inch or two lower.

Cool beans... I actually remember how to copy and paste!  It's been a long time. 

A lot has changed in blogger ... I wonder if I can remember how to post a picture...let's see.

Yup ... just throwing a little Facebook crap atcha ... old habits die hard.
How's Balonie you ask: 
Well to tell the truth she has mellowed some.  Still drinks and swears too much but she has stopped jumping into my head when I least expect it.  I do on occasion have to don my welders cap to keep her out but for the most time I can keep her a bay.  Remember that god awful post I did with that welders cap on?  Good grief what an ass.  I deleted it.

I'm still having to deal with tradesmen every week or two coming in to fix or refix stuff. The painters were in today doing touch ups that needed tending to.  I sort of missed them.  Or missed looking at them.  heh.
I was just on my ex's web site...facebook...We are not done...we are on a short break lol. We have a family baby coming up and she is past due .. and all the family is guessing her due date and trying to win a prize..which is changing the kid's first diaper.  Well fart.... I'm guessing next year. 
I think when I posted last Lisa was pregnant....but so is Cheri her the famdamily is growing. Those whippersnappers can't wait to see what gender is going to come out of the chute...they both are like kid's at Christmas and try to open the presents in July. We know Lisa's is a boy...and Cheri is chomping at the bit for her next ultrasound.  It's have little one's again.  I might even hold one.  If they wiggle too much I pass em on.  How can you tell I have never been a mom?
Well it was nice shooting the shit with you....sorry for my absence and I will make a honest effort to keep my blog alive.  I feel so guilty ... I read about 20 blogs a day and get pissed if they miss one.  Do I comment?  Not most of the time.  Times are a changing.
