it's tough waking up in a hotel room , knowing that colins probably awake and I cant go pick him up and play with him... never take anything for granted... now I'm looking back on that wonderful time when I could take him down on the beach and then make brekkie for everybody... or then come back to an unhappy, sad , depressed wife whom the more I tried to keep happy , the worse it got
now I can't even take pics my in laws have taken my son away from me..

waiting for the swim race in the surf....

I guess,she was biding her time after she was sent home from paradise as the granny nanny to reciprocate and kick her soon to be ex son in law out of her ice castle while able to hold her grandson  in her obsessive clutches as much as she likes and rob the father of her grandson from being a father in the most formative years of his life!! alas, pray for me , that I will be able to have a happy ending bringing up my Aussie born son in Oz! I guess it will eventually happen sans my son... Please Lord, help the powers that be understand how wonderful it will be for the heir to this kingdom on the beach, to see his future of being the best surf swimmer on the beach to come to fruition!! maybe, some believe in miracles!

I just had to show how war isnt good... and thats the way it is at home...

As Iraq winds down, U.S. Army confronts a broken force
By Nancy A. Youssef McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — When Lt. Col. Dave Wilson took command of a battalion of the 4th Brigade of the 1st Armored Division, the unit had just returned to Texas from 14 months traveling some of Iraq's most dangerous roads as part of a logistics mission.
What he found, he said, was a unit far more damaged than the single death it had suffered in its two deployments to Iraq.
Nearly 70 soldiers in his 1,163-member battalion had tested positive for drugs: methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana. Others were abusing prescription drugs. Troops were passing around a tape of a female lieutenant having sex with five soldiers from the unit. Seven soldiers in the brigade died from drug overdoses and traffic accidents when they returned to Fort Bliss, near El Paso, after their first deployment.
"The inmates were running the prison," Wilson said.
What Wilson had to deal with, however, was hardly an isola…

still a lot of packing but the less we take the better... luggage is so often a liabiltiy that we think we have to carry everywhere... what will we take with us??? maybe just memories if there is some place else to go after having the luck (blessings?) just that our one microscopic sperm made it when he/she took the plunge and ready, set, go dived full blast into that warm ovary...
and then were off in the great race.. what race is that?? the human race!!
did that sperm carry any physical luggage(?) perhaps emotional baggage and distant memories from your past life... maybe you were just an ant getting stomped on by a large obese american and your karma was to come back as a fat ass....
or not...
or maybe we could have been a hog??

so Im leaving the land of tea parties...
maybe it would actually better if these crazies
drank a little more tea and less coffee...
but these nuts are right in one respect, we are spending way too much, but I dont understand how these kristian folk can condone wasting al…

I really rode the bike hard today, amazing how sometimes after a little bit of the magic herb and I felt like I could keep cycling round the oval in the park... I was realizing that even in a small rural town, the complexion of the town is changing drastically from what it probably was as close as 10 years ago... soon this country will be predominantly hispanic... the world is changing drastically I could become alarmed and overwhelmed with the changes and worry about the world that Colin will grow up in.. and then I think about just doing things one day at a time
and things will just get better...
I figure that the next 5 years of our lives could be the best the way my parents travelled with Ron and me all over the world!
my brother, Ron, and I were very lucky
or could I say blessed (??)

I guess I need to put our blog on Oz time!  ... Im proud of the way I've been taking care of business and especially took care of all the shit in storage and you''ll be proud of the way I threw more than half of it away...just had to be brutal with all the stuff and old records much of it destroyed by fire...
so Im curing myself of my packritis...
I need to visit walmart to make sure that I know how to use the movie camera correctly and have a better camera to put pics on the puter when I get the chance so we can record all the wonderful moments with our son!!

"How Blessed You Are Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

You might be comparing what you have with other people today, and this could make you feel wanting. The feelings you have may be due to your high expectations and desire to succeed. Even if your resources seem limited, you might wish to look around yourself and make an inventory of everything you have been blessed with by the universe. If you can begin with what you…

wow... Charles is a great friend... it is wonderful to have at least one person that will listen to you.. it's always a trip and most often enjoyable revisiting the Okie Zone...
knowing that Im only visiting this hot state of Sarah Palin lovers
where the tea party would feel very welcome...
change is always happening
as the human race seeks some sort of elusive stability...
my home in the Okie zone has been there almost 3 decades
and again rose like a Phoenix from the ashes... or the forbidden formosa plant that comes back to life with vigor
after being continually cut down...
it would also have survived 9/11
like the Survivor Tree!

sitting here at MCds (this one by my house is Mexican owned) where they are all wearing cowboy hats celebrating Mexican independence ...
this is the new country always with an influx of new immigrants and I guess that it is what has made this country strong in the past...what will be able to do to meet the demands of a new population where we will have to find jobs, living space and health care for our burgeoning population...
everywhere you go now in most states you can see how they have become the largest minority and soon will be the majority
they are all hispanic working in this store where I first worked when it was first built amazingly about 25 years ago...when times were tough for me as far as finding work
Now  they are all working very hard as they were when my builder was employing them to rebuild my roof ...
so my son, if he choses to live part of his life here will be in a very different country especially when you look at the average American... I believe most of the coun…

when will MOST people see the real sarah palin and what she is doing to this country??now another repub clone (christine Odonnell) has arrived onto the tea party!..with glasses she looks like sarahs twin! look she even wears the same red power dress .."unfactual" another palin like blooper... why do all these repubs fuck up so much and the redneck teapartiers lovers  will always love them! WHEN WILL folks realize that she will do even more damage than Bush did to America... she has a large influence on white right wing kristians  and it is scary how our rights will be taken away under the guise of kristianity.. I will never how folks who love war can be really Christian.. that was never the image that I had of Jesus when i was young.. I always thought that folks that wanted to really follow in His footsteps would turn the other cheek and would not love violence!

September 13, 2010 Challenges Help You Grow                                ( it took about half an hour to downlaod this pic...Im glad I got to see the pic colins grandma took) Sagittarius Daily Horoscope

Your confidence level may be high, which may encourage you to challenge yourself today. Feeling like you are able toachieve anything you set your mind to can motivate you to try things you hadn’t thought of before. Perhaps taking calculated risks could move you in a direction where you will grow, learn, and develop your talents. If faced with the decision to go beyond your usual comfort (Okie) zone today, you may want to think about what you can gain from trying something new. Picture how your life may change for the better as you move forward and get away from your usual routine. Drawing strength from your abilities and your assurance in yourself could fill you with the courage you need to take on new challenges.
To develop positively we must conscientiously face things that will test…

ok... a lazy saturday watching the semis of the US Open, Dockovich is ahead a service break over Federer and the winner will play Nadal in the finals tomorrow...
while I await a phone call from my builder this weekend
to make sure everything is in order... so many things to do
but the main thing is making sure we are packed
and hopefully won't get any more surprises when we arrive in Oz...(about arsonist squirrels) and have good insurance to cover any more disasters
the forces that you feel don't want you to have a happy no worries, mate, life...

Id like to do more cycling but my left knee has been bothering me with arthritis
but Dad I.L. says if I lose 30 pounds, it won't bother me so much...
so that's less than 15 kilos...
that sure would get me pumped to be under 200 lbs and get closer to my college swimming weight...
maybe I could even get close to my college times!!
then I could really start going with the fantasy that Im getting younger with age...
and also live vica…
I suppose on this blog I could open up to much
feeling that you (this audience out there that I try to see everyday telling you about my challenging life as a beach bum wannabee)
the fact is that here in Arkansas it is very lonely
with my moments with Colin the only high points...
does that sound pathetic
of course everyone in the Ozarks loves Colin
but his dad is somebody that is just somebody to tolerate...

Megan McCain was on John Stewart's comedy half hour about politics...
here was senator McCain's feisty attractive pleasantly plump blonde daughter
laughing at every other thing John said
She just wrote a best seller that is autobiographical and a daily diary of her life on the campaign
and her father's challenge of dealing with Palin always center staging him in his 2nd attempt at becoming president...
so my deal is how could I do the same when Im not at the same level of fame as her but
maybe I could come close if my story becomes a screenplay for a movie!!
 a best seller that Muffy mentioned in rare compliment of this story that is just waiting for a happy ending!!\

So I sell my home in Okiehoma (yeh, the one with the witch's curse on it) and perhaps get an earth friendly home that is totally sufficient but somewhere in Oz with a view of a not so busy beach...(but those beaches will be very rare in the near future)

"Onward Christian Soldiers" or could we say onward peaceful, loving Christian warriors??

I wonder which order of pics has nothing to do with today's theme ? or just go with the flow while i finally write to you while frustrated with the quirks of this new blog format... and have a little space in the inlaw's household... while I prograsstinate on the only blog and get nagged about my ole infinity tires touching dad in l's precious timber railing ...(when he parks his 1500$ bike against his daughter's 30k jeep... Hypocracy(??) or not? I have a few minutes before these pics are uploaded before I write my every other poohbah/daily (should I submit that word for the Urban dictionary?)(which bloke looks most like me??),,, some might say the clean shaven fellow flexing his testosteroned muscles ready to kick ass in the surf swim race(??)
 Dad IL says the leaves coming from my shirt ended up in his dryer ..
my shirt was up on the line for a few days in the constant rain bu he claims that they are marijuana leaves from my shirt pockety..of course its been sitting ou…

I guess this was happier times when we had no worries.. but we can still find happiness
I dont know how much I should open up to... hanging out precariously with the inlaws
with the worry that my better half  wants to stay here with the beginnings of autumn in the Ozarks
but at least Im getting to watch Federer play in the quarters of the US Open and have the advantage of Direct TV's instant replay whenever I want it... or to play a little more with my beautiful bright spoiled child...
bonding more and more with him

"Kelsey Grammer, 55, brought pregnant girlfriend Kayte Walsh, 29, to the premiere party for 'The Romantics' Tuesday night. Grammer, who is currently divorcing wife Camille, and Walsh confirmed the baby news in August.
This will be his fifth child."

ok... I was writing before about Jesus being an immaculate conception or just a child of an unwed mother..and then it was erased by God(?)... perhaps for me talking about something that could be sacreligious??
then I was looking at Huffington Post, and most guys would say "way to go dude!.".
I only have one child but there is considerable age difference but not near as much difference as this older bloke with a 29 year old.. but admit it guys... some of you would envy him or just congratulate him!!
so Ill get off this pot and continue this conversation later after some stuff. (hopefully my daddy in law wont see me even though he loved the extra strong stuff from his older brother, Ted!)

what are trendy zone and chic castle ?

wow.. I was very briefly chatting(he didnt respond as is often the case) with my dad in law about the Hong Kong economy where there are much lower taxes and business is laissez faire...(the govt leaves you alone)
and they have always been thriving.. coincidentally some bloke did the above search and my site comes up!!
so what??
Im debating about driving this truck from my wife's ex but the tires are very bald
but I have to move this crap!

sitting with my christian family with a program on patience.. I agreed with most of it and at least Jesus wasnt mentioned over 50x.. so as far as our relationship, I hope that my better half will see the light... I dont know if the alligator was appropriate, because I think most folks that screwed me over didnt have much patience...I sometimes think that I have been patiently waiting in anticipation of my dream family in Oz, but I havent been waiting to screw someone...so I need to find a more appropriate pic of my own patience...

i decided Id include a letter to one of best Oz mates... I miss some of these blokes!! Im listening now to the news and embarrassed about our country burning the Moslem bibles  allowing this bloke ( a kkkristian minister is burning these holy books)..."if george bush called this bloke up, he would continue ahead to burn these books.. does this idiot have a way out?? he only has 50 in his church!! I wonder what others around think of this crazy hate filled country!! sorry about this weird font.. I was trying to  be creative with the colors ...maybe have the colors of the gold sand and the ocean blue..Ill work on it Hey ya MATE!! great to hear from u on a regular basis!!. (look forward to seeing you every morning when u put up the flags and get back to the swing of things..the dolphin classic will be especially tough!! but im excited about the challenge of the dolphin classic (will it be a relay?)
a month will be a more realistic goal to get in moderate shape and lose the kilos ive gained…

as usual , so many things to do...
gotta meet with the builder to get all my shit out of storage..
as you all know all this crap, has been the biggest albatross around my neck...
Im probably heading into a rainstorm as the global warming heats up the gulf creating more hurricanes...
but I want to stay positive
after I was listening to that "Beautiful boy" song of John Lennon
and Colin into the bathroom while drinking on his bottle to look at the pic of the playground!!
You can do it...u will feel so much better after it's all moved out of storage!!
Image
wow... as usual, I am finding that time is accelerating as I age...
if I know that Im taking care of business for our family, I dont feel so bad..
and knowing that we are on the way back to OZ so quickly again..
I of course shouldnt have procrastinated so much and come back a lot sooner to take care of business, epecially  with all this crap that's in storage...that is the biggest obststacle...
so many things that I still have to do , but the main thing is taking pics of our little family, this gorgeous day with the first weekend of fall... the last couple of weeks , we have the best most comfortable weather... so I could feel guilty at my own prograsstination or in my own heart feel good that I sometimes make the right choices... Im sitting in my favorite spot to write , drink coffee and make sure my intestinal tract is as empty as it's going to be while I write for my five (or less) favorite readers...

after thinking about my own garbage that I have to go through before adding it to landfills, I looked at Huffpo and saw this article about the worst polluted places in the world...and to think that Sarah Palin , Geoge Bush and Faux News don't give a shit about how we are fucking up this world! (this bloke on the right reminds me of this youn g Jesus look alike bloke who thought he was a saviour for this little Indian village in New Mexico where I taught last..). "From the highways of Los Angeles to the Citarum River of Bandung, Indonesia, earth's most polluted city of Linfen, China to the streets of London, the world is laden with man-made pollution. Chemical, air, water and oil pollution ruin the environment, cause premature deaths, spoil the world's resources and worsen climate change.

As the world's population soars to nearly 7 billion, we here at HuffPost Green decided to take a virtual tour of some of the world's most polluted places. Check out our slideshow…

Hello Sweden!! somebody from Gottland was checking out my site and Im always curious as to what reason they might have pulled up my site?? ... right now, Im in the current limbo, wondering where I will go next and where my little family will safely go.. and wonder if some arsonist squirrels will attack my home as soon as I leave.. hopefully, the insurance packet should be in the mail.. I feel like it's Ground Hog Day in Okiehoma, at a limbo , hoping to trust my builder and that he will be keeping me informed of the monthly progress (sending pics at least) of my beautiful home ... rising from like the phoenix from the ashes ...arsonist squirrels(???) ..I wish that the firemarshall checked the car more intently... and again I will have to just trust that everything will be going well... in the meantime, my account dwindles further.. Im sitting here at Starbucks enjoying the first major rain in a long while covering the drought of the Okie zone... I thought that this pic of Henry Fonda …

I decided to have one more visit to Wendy's or at their parking lot so I could chat with with you at least for a few minutes after visiting Okc's notorious Crimson Canine (the Red Dog)...it's only natural for men and some Ellen Degenerate leaning women to look at young women dancing in seductive naughty ways..even my father in law told me he how he was having the best time of his life ...(until he became Baptist again and would rationalize that he wasn't perverted enough to enjoy a place of such ill repute!) I was wondering what would be a good pic for me at the crossroads of Soddom or Gomorah...a heaven like paradise or the aftermath of Armageddon)
my eyes living vicariously through those of a child in the not too distant future looking off at the distance city destroyed by something evil(??) could this be our futrure??
