I used to come here quite a bit, but may recognize the name, most won't. Life has changed a lot for me over the past several years, being several years older is one change that occurred and will hopefully continue.
So I'm 55 today and just happened to open the happy birthday email sent by the guy or gal working their fingers to the bone in the birthday notification dungeon. Thanks birthday dungeon worker!
I used to live in Texas and thanks to a death and greyhound I now live in Ohio again and giving some serious thought to volunteering at a local bicycle co-op to repair bicycles. I can't really ride them anymore, but still know how to turn wrenches and so on. I'm disabled so my working days are over except for the stuff I want to do and laying around getting fat for the first time in my life wasn't on my wish list.
I'm happy to say I haven't been in a church since..oh yeah..election day, but I just voted then. Other than that.. Oh yeah...got a sandwich once in a sandwich line while homeless for a while and did winter out a season in a mission, but no praying required, just an extraordinarily uncomfortable cot and food no restaurant in the western world could sell legally. I did tell a preacher at one place to go have forced sex with himself, but I may have used some more colorful language.
I still refuse to take serious the most ridiculous notion ever invented, religion so I don't debate it and prefer to just let them rattle on about their book as long as they leave me out of that shit..
If anyone remembers, I was caring for an elderly woman in Texas, but she had a massive stroke a few years back and died later that night.. I still miss her, but I've moved on and got my life together for the most part. I'm getting dentures in a few weeks so I'm excited about that and I still have long hair. Other than that life is good. I live downtown in the capital on the 7th floor with a great view of the city even if it's only through a dinky window I can only partially open.
That's about it..
