"Redemption"
 

Can a bad person, turn out to be good? Can a person redeem themselves? Maybe, I had a uncle who was a son of a bitch. He was abusive to my aunt, wasn't a good father. On some payday he would gamble his check and lose all his money , and my aunt wouldn't see him for several day. My aunt had to pay all the bills. My aunt must have really loved this man! She had four kids with him, and never filed for divorce. She was his rock when he was down and out, she always took him back when he left, and when he was sick she nursed him back to health. There was one time he admitted that he didn't deserve such a loving woman. Years later she died, and he inherited everything she owned, two cars, a little money and a house, along with the life insurance policy. Family members was upset, and thought he shouldn't have gotten anything. Later in years, my dad died. He was a good man, good father and everyone loved him. He was 6yrs younger than my uncle. I was upset, why would God take a good man and let a horrible man remain alive? I look at life as unfair, I was hurt. But as time passed by, my uncle started to change. He gave up drinking, cussing, and started to go to church once in a while. His child, my cousin moved in with him. He tried to reach out to the other children, but my oldest cousin refused to acknowledge him. His health start to deteriorate, so my cousin was there to take care of her dad. At times, I talked to other family members and they said he did 180 degree turned. I couldn't believe it, with in a year he died. Then I thought about it, my dad was a good man, and did all he had to do so god took him, and my uncle was spared and given a chance to redeem himself. It took much longer for my uncle, compared to my dad. So the question is? Can we be redeem? Maybe if we live long enough, we can!

"The 7 year itch"

There a saying that when a couple been married 7 years, they get the 7 year itch. Usually at this time they get divorced. Or, one of them get the "Itch", they want to cheat. Rumors say, if you can make it through the first 7, you can go a lot further, your marriage has a chance. There a movie called "The 7 year itch" with Marilyn Monroe. In the movie, some old dude got bored with his wife and wanted a much younger woman. So you know what role Marilyn played? She didn't played the role of the dirty old man. She played the hot young babe! BUT, there is another version of "The 7 year itch"! Would you like to hear it? You know if you file bankruptcy, or got debt you don't pay, you credit goes bad. duh. BUT, in 7 years, It would be a clean slate. I worked with a guy many moons ago, almost 20yrs ago. He had the "Itch", he was always scratching, just kidding. But, him and his wife was great con artists, it wasn't that way at the start. He had his own business, that was doing good, but later start to fail, she had a great good paying job. Between the two they had at least 14 credit cards. A few of them the limit was over $10,000. So as the business failed, they start using their credit card for survival. He knew he was going to lose the business eventually, and never going to ever pay back the credit cards, so he has an idea. He would get money from their card to get him a new car, at first they paid the minimum, they was falling behind on the mortgage, so they got money from the credit cards to also pay off the house. So eventually he got a job, his business crashed, and they filed for bankruptcy. He said, they was well over a $100,000 in credit card debt, but you remember they has 14 or more cards. So after 7 years, he check his credit, clean slate, zero! So they both start applying for credit card, the least on some was $500, and the max on one for an example was $5000, that was right after his bankruptcy was lifted. He told me, he been waiting for this day, and he's 'Itching." At the time, I don't what in the hell he was talking about! He said , they going to use the cards to get the wife a car now. So as time passed I finally snapped! This when I realized the real meaning of "The 7 year itch"!

Seem like things happens when we not prepared, this is why it's called the unexpected. My water heater gave out without a notice and I had water all over the place, and I had no money, I had to borrow money to get it fixed. A while back, I had to get my dryer fix and a new washer, at that time I had to borrow money too. Recently a friend of mines died, at the age of 35, he had no life insurance and my friend didn't have any insurance on his either, and my friend was broke, lucky for my friend, the church got money to help in his burial. That's sad about his , you never know what lies ahead. So, recently, I decide to try to save up for a rainy day, these situations were a wake up call. I will be the first to admit, I have too much debt, so someone ask me the other day, when I get to the age of retirement, would I be able to? I never though of that, I won't! I got to get rid of and eliminate some on my debt, I know, I got to also put some money aside, still have fun, but spend wisely. Things happen, things fall apart, that's reality. I don't want to be in my 70s and still working because I have to. Don't know what the future holds, but I got to do better getting debt down and don't have to borrow money every time a catastrophe hits. I got to do my part to make things better. So if something in the future happens, I can expect the unexpected.

"I'm older today, than I ever been in my life".

There are some unhappy people out there, negative. Not only would they stab you in the back, they will stab you in the chest. Why live a miserable life? They love to bring people down, snitch, and do anything to see you fall. There is usually no gain in it for them, and they still do what they do. There are some who spread rumors or won't help out there fellow co-worker. They not trying to get ahead, but they try to stop you from getting ahead. Miserable, unhappy people, wow. To them life sucks, that sad, our life is a gift, we should cherish every living moment. There are some who is living the dream, nice home, money, great job, excellent 401k and still miserable! Still a snake in the grass. To each their own. People have to the choice to be happy, sad, pissed off, it's up to us. If you choose to be angry, I can't be your company, because you not going to make me miserable.

Sunday is father's day, this is for all the father out there. Happy Father's day.

Moms get her love 365 days a year and 366 on leap year, Father's day is the one day a year we can be praised. There are some of us daddies that did well, some did so-so, and some did bad. We passed and failed. But this day, once a year we allowed to enjoy our . Even if you and you ex didn't get along, she would, for only this day, allow you to be a dad. Being a dad is hard, I was fortunate to have a good wife at the time, she make things easier for me. She was a great mom, but a lousy wife. One of my best bud going up was a ladies man, all the ladies like him, even a woman I was talking to, as well as a cousin of mine. They said that they wanted a baby by him, so it been years since I heard from him. I heard he got 9 from 9 different women, they wanted to have his baby, he's not really in touch with any of them, the mom just wanted to carry his , so who is the biggest idiot, him or them? There a few I know that work on poverty wages, and struggling to survive. They want to see their , and said that they can't, they only can when they can give the mom money for the . Being a father is not about how much money you can give the mom, or seeing their one weekend a month, or not being there at their activitys. It's the simple things, helping them with their homework, being there when they need us, seeing them more that every other weekend, telling them we love them and doing the best we can. You do have to be a rocket scientist to be a good father. I heard people say, I'm broke, so I'll see my next month, they got it all wrong. there was a saying, "Mama's baby, poppa maybe". So a lot of us guys bailed, and lived their lives, but when the is a success, they come out of the woodwork. Man up, be a father, because like growing a tree, we planted the seed, so we get the honor to enjoy this miracle the rest of our lives! So again, no matter what kind of father we are, great, good, mediocre, so-so, it doesn't matter, for one day a year we get our day to be a father. This is why we have "Daddie's day"!

If some one give you advise, do you take it the wrong way? Do we feel like the trying to belittle you? So who do we take advise from? Maybe a father or not a mother, or the other way around? Maybe we would take advise from a friend, instead of a parent? How Know? Maybe it comes down to respect, or just someone we liked. My mom was a tough lady, she was like a drill Sargent, as a I had to obey by her rules, but I said, when I get to be an adult, I don't have to listen. I talked to a friend the other day on facebook. It been a few decades since I talked to him. This was a friend who had a hard time making it through high school, he was 21 when he graduated form high school, bless his soul, he finished. He asked me about my life and I asked him about his, he said, he's married with and had two college degrees, and associates and a bachelors, and got his own little business. I was shocked! I know he had a hard time just making through high school, and not the tricky part, it was my mother, that mentioned to him to go to get his degree, the same person, I though was mean! Wow! She did that for him! Advice or criticism? Let's see, well, I realized the approach is a big factor, she was always firm, maybe her approach work for him, maybe I need more of a mild approach, my dad was a very nice guy, so I did listen to him more than my mom. People approach things by their personalities, I learned better from the more calmer teachers. I had a lady friend that gave me some advise today, in the past I wouldn't listen, but she did a 180 degree and gave me the information in a totally different way, and I was great advise! We were on the same page, on lots of things. Maybe if my mom approached or did things different, I might have listened to her advise, and my life made have been even better, who know? So I got to thinking, "Advise or criticism'? Listen to what someone who on your side might say, they are there for you. It might be beneficial to you, and just might learn something! Don't worry about their approach.

Since the begging of time, we evolved. One day, the cave people was in their cave, and one cave man said, I'm tired of being cold all the damn time! Let me invent fire, so I won't freeze to death! Also, he got tired of eating his meat raw. So, he discover fire, by rubbing two sticks together, to bad, he didn't figure out the pots and pans. As time progress, the Dinosaurs didn't exist anymore, except one, he went under water swam to Scotland and became, "The loch ness monster. Things in life changes, so we evolve. We got around in a and buggy, then Henry Ford created the first car. The Wright brothers invented the plane, look how the plane evolved now! I remember the first record album was called a 78, then 45 and a 33. In the 70s, we had 8 tracks, some might not know what that is. Now we have CDs. When I was young, I got a kick out of how people dressed in the 70s, lot's different from how we dress now. Things and life is constantly changing, we just got to except and adapt, because that evolution.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, we know that simple things once burned turn into dust, paper, wood, basically everything. Metal, it's take a much hotter like 1000c or (1600F or 2200F), it would first turn into lava , a river of hot metal, and once is settle after a while, it would eventually turn into dust. Everything man made, with enough heat becomes dust. Now this is the strange thing about this, is we too become dust. We made out of flesh, but with whether it's human or metal, and any kind of object or thing, it doesn't matter, because "All we are is dust in the wind".

Life, this is a gift we all given. A gift from God. A miracle between and man and a woman, from the love they have for each other. Without this gift we won't exist. This is a blessing and a honor. Some take it for granted, some waste it and some of us try to take it away. We can't take it away. It's ours, but It's not ours, it's a bad thing to do that, there would be consequences. We don't know how long we got it, there are times when a baby is born, they die right away. Life was given and taken. We might die young, or live to be old, we should cherish life no matter how long we got. Everyone was dealt their individual hand, might be a winning hand or maybe not? But we don't know the results? Life can be a good thing or a living hell, that up to us! We do control our destiny, but one thing about life, shit happen, it might get bad and me might even have hard times. But it depends on how we deal with it. I'm a person, that seem like nothing don't go right. But, I learn to accept what comes my way, and do the best I can. I got to keep living. We might mess up, do bad things, that our choice, "we reap what we sow". Why not chose to be good, try to be happy, do what you can to make it right, we going to be here anyway, so make the best of it. Remember, we was giving the greatest gift of all! And that LIFE!!!!!

Strange we are characterized by colors, even before we are born. If a couple having a baby, they right away find out with sex if the baby, and get color accordingly. If it's a girl, they paint their room pink, have tons of pink toys, and everything on the bed is pink, even the sheets. The do the same if it's a boy, but everything is blue. Pink, is a cute feminine color, but to be honest, pick is a better color on a grown woman! A woman wears or walk around in pink panties, I got so hard, I could poke a hole throw my pants. My thing grows! Like Pinocchio's nose, after he told a mouth full of lies. The color blue, nice color. 90% of the people I know, pick blue as their favorite color. Blue has some positive things, the sky is blue and the ocean is blue. When I was 8, I heard a story about this named "Little boy blue", I guess, he was a musician? They said, "Little boy blue, come blow your horn. I figured, at that age, little boy blue, must have been a horn blowing motherfucker! Maybe, him playing his horn, they came out the term, "The blues"? It's just a black man version of country. If you listen to most country songs or blues, it's a sad story! Listen to some, make you feel sorry for them and it might make you cry. I don't want to hear no sad songs. When a person is down, people say, why so blue? So Blue, represents good and bad. There are color that neutral, if you go out these color can go with any outfit, common color, people wear these colors all the time. Black and white. They say people who wear these simple colors, like playing it safe, and have no creativity? I don't know? Another color, is Red, they say when people wear red, they want to be noticed. Buy a red car, the cop will notice! I know cops, and they said, they look for red vehicles, that weird. I sometimes get depressed, but check this out, there's a color that makes me feel good! And that color is "ORANGE", yep, orange. Orange suppose to be the feel good color. It's works for me. The last color, I'm going to talk about is "Green', good color, is the color of money. Nature, outdoors, green is a good color, lot of people hate green. That my favorite color. They said, if you wear green or drive a green vehicle, you might be a genius, or creative. I don't dress green all the time, I have a silver car, and I'm far from being a genius. There are so many colors out there, "What color represent you"?

Monday is Veterans day, we give honor and respect for those who gave their life for us. There are many who made a difference in our lives, maybe it could have been a parent, a friend, teacher, mentor or someone we don't even know. But, this world was built on sacrifice, and there are some who made a difference and It cost them their lives. This gift is embedded in all of us, we are all good natured, we might can't do much, but just doing a little, might can make us a "Difference maker".

"Playing Possum"

The Possums are good actors, they should get the academy award for playing dead. They play dead when their victims are close, then as they get close they attack them, or if they getting their ass-kicked in a fight, they also play dead. To me the term "playing Possum" mean being fake, false, not real. People get into accidents, and act like their hurt worst than they really are, to get money. Their Lawyers even advise them to do this. People make big money everyday from doing this. I know normal people who just don't like to work, and got a disability check, hell! I don't want to work, but I know I have to. I got to pay my bill and I like to enjoy life too. But, be careful for what you wish for, once you get on a medical, you under a microscope all the time, you have tons of medical bills, and the doctor put in your report that you mess up, and he get his check every month, and can't be caught doing certain things. If you get caught you lose everything! Is it worth it? The people get on disability, if it's sincere, by all mean get on it, if not, you messing up. You get $70 a month on food stamps, and less than $900 a month, granted all your medical is free . But some get lucky, they get section 8 housing, they only pay around '$200 a month for their apartment. But, with the rest, they need to pay car insurance, if they have a car, get necessaries, soap, razor, deodorant, lotions, toilet paper...etc., people on it, say they only can go out maybe every other month for they are broke. Again, nothing wrong on disability if it's sincere. I mom was on it, She only got $400 a month, bless her soul, she had no choice. But one thing about working it's keep us honest! We all need to get out everyday and do something, I was down for a few month with a depression, I got so fat. Working keep or mind, body and soul healthy! I know many of us want the easy way out, why work when you can get a check for free? So, when a person going to make that decision to fake being health or fake being injured, take 5 min and then decide, is it worth "Playing Possum???

"Hard habit to break"

Patterns, we all have them, follow them, it's a trend. If a person attracted to a certain type of a person, they get rid of them and get someone else just like them. There a woman, who loved men 10 to 12 years younger, who don't work, and abusive. This same woman came home early and found her boyfriend, in their bed with another woman. She threw him out and with in a month, he's back, she said, this time he going to change, five years later, still no job, and been kicked out several times, but she let him back. My neighbor been married 6 times, he wants a women in need, he feel if a woman need him and he could provide and she would love him. He get with someone who cheat and use him and he end up going back to court to get her out, and it cost him tons of money. I told him, that he has a pattern going on, and next time find somebody who loves you, but he say, he can't be alone, he got to have a wife. One day, he even mentioned, that it seem like he married the same wife over and over again. This is when it was number five. Strange how people think? You do the same thing, but yet you expect different results. This is a very bad habit! I have a few bad habits myself, I got married young and I said to myself, that I would not have multiple marriages. The story didn't have a happy ending and I'm almost divorce 25yrs. But one of my bad habits is commitment. When I'm with a person for a period of time, I have this habits of thinking things going to go bad, it won't work out, and she stop caring. I guess my divorce fucked me up, there was a time that my ex, told me that, she ruin me. She said it in a way that she felt sorry for me. So in my mind, I thought I was meant to be alone. That not a good thing, men or women, who is alone, live a shorter life! But, I admit, I have bad habits. I procrastinate and wait to the last minute to do everything. I wait till I get fat before I exercise, then when I work out, It's not fun. I don't tell the woman I'm with, that I love her, as much as I should, I got to get better there. I hate too much public affection, I took a lady friend to a concert to see Chicago, she got buzzed and just wanted to keep making out, when I go to see a concert, I want to see the concert, we can make out later. But, I'm am good at remembering holidays, birthday, and good at giving gifts. But one of my bad habits, if she keep forgetting our anniversary, my birthday or forget to get me something for Christmas, I would eventually end the relationship and move on. That's important to me! I would never slander the woman I'm with, even if we broken up, if she slander me or laugh and make a joke, IT"S OVER! This is what I stand by, But I still have bad habits, and working on them, Maybe one day, one of my bad habits would be "Broken".

What the secret for longevity or living a long life? Who know? But there was a time, I was depressed. I tried all kinds of medications, but nothing work. I went to another doctor, he took me off all the medications, and told me to exercise for at least 15min a day, non-stop. I'm hardly depressed at all now. I guess that was my best medicine. Years ago, when my dad was alive, he had a brilliant mind, he did accounting work, later he retired, him and my mom was never the type who would go out anywhere. He eventually start wasting away, and got dementia, they never exercise, they just stay in the house. My neighbor's dad 83 years old, he exercise, and once in a while fly his private plane, he and his 85 year old girl friend go dancing once in a while. Amazing! He sharp as a tack, and can remember things, even from over 70 years ago. So is exercise the key to longevity? Maybe? The strangest thing happen about 1982, I was a young man on home for a visit from the Air Force. I was spending the night at my grandparents place, it got late and off to bed they went, their room was upstairs and I was in a room downstairs. I got bored and decided to get out, I figures they was a sleep, so I would open the door to wake them up and tell them I'm going out. At this time, my grand dad was 76 and my grand ma was 79. So I opened to door, to my surprised, they was fucking! That right, fucking! I didn't know at that age you still could? Damn, speaking about moves, my grand dad was put on some moves. So, the question is, do you want have longevity, yes! Do you want to live a long life, yes! Do you want to be able to have sex at age 76? Hell yes!!! So I "Got to move", so at 76, I still can lay pipe, like my grand dad.
