A long time since writing on this blog.  No one reads it, of course.  I've found it a futile vent to place my thoughts.

In two years, I've had little need to vent, or write my self-important thoughts. Work.  That has been my stage of performance.  Oh, for a different venue. I need help with my imagination.

Summer is about to end.  In just a few days, it will be September and summer will be gone.  It makes me feel sad, really.  It was a good summer.  I had my cousins grandkids stay with me for a month for summer school and it was nice having youngsters around.  Travis, the eldest of the two, is nearly out of high school.  The younger one, Josh, is 14 years old.  Both are such characters.

They're gone now.  Back on the Big Island.

Labor Day knocks at the door, then comes the pagan holidays, beginning with Samhain.

Thanksgiving comes soon.  Shall I take the next day, after the holiday, off?  I'd just as soon go in to work. Especially with the condo being so empty.

Saturnalia then comes.  Oh my.  Yes, my thinking has changed lately, focusing on my faith, for what it is.  None of the holidays seem all that important anymore.  There is no sparkle.  None of the stories, often repeated, will convince me they are of any worth.

Happy Birthday to me

I'm 62.  Oy vey.

A lot has happened since my last entry on this blog.  Discovering the extra weight was horrible enough.  Having to buy new clothes just so I didn't walk around looking like a stuffed sausage casing was the greatest challenge.

I ended up buying clothes through the internet.  Most of the purchases are fine, though some of them have absolutely disappointed, especially the shoes.  I now have fattened, widened feet.  Underwear is also a nightmare when you have a fat arse.

WHAT!?

I go into a blur and find myself stepping onto a scale and what do I find?  I'm weighing in at 353 lbs.

Good Lord!  What happened???  I don't eat all that much!  I watch what I eat and still, I gain weight!  Not good.  The city could use me to flatten fresh asphalt during road repairs!

Should I go on a diet?  Hahahaha.  I'm not mente insana!

At my age, gaining this much weight is like adding more stones on the back of a slave building a pyramid.  It's certainly not good for my all around good health.  What to do.  Diets don't really work.  Pills are a waste of good money.  I don't look forward to trying Atkins again.  There's got to be something else that I can do.

Sold The Condo

It's done. 

After a lot of ups and downs, I finally sold our (my) condo.  I moved into Tom's studio (closet) back in October 22nd 2011.  It was a hurried move.  I would have preferred staying at the Skytower longer, but Tom wanted the move to take place sooner.  That's fine, I thought.  The memories of losinig Dwane were so intense.  It was an extreme conflict of emotions.

Anyway, it's done.  Since then, the days have blurred.  I would blink and then realize that time had passed, usually in large chunks.

Hello 2012.
