it's a gorgeous day in the Ozarks and im makin peace with the inlaws...
instead of me being an outlaw with them...
took some nice pics of the river that was almost flooding...
it's been the first nice day since arriving into this hemisphere...

I worry about whats happening to america where the journalists allow such blatant racism continuing to harp on Obama's birth certificate...even when he shows it to these racist "birthers" they give him a hard time and then the racist Trump questions his school credentials ...
who ever questioned George Jr. when he had a low C average at Yale??

I am scared about the very rich 1% continuing to bankrupt our nation...at the poor and middle class's expense... we are heading to becoming a banana republic where the corporations will own us and we will be paying taxes to benefit them and bail them out when they need help!

It is really scary what is happening to our country… I have come back from Oz where there is a govt. that takes care of the people.. I can see it from living there for a couple of years on and off…

I see a well off country and then I come back to a country struggling to stave off poverty…
I could worry about our family and I could worry about the country falling down the tubes...

or when will we have a revolution to decide to not the republicon totally fuck us over!
with the Ryan bill to take care of the deficit...
the rich will pay little in taxes and our social security will no longer be in existence...
... and then donald trump is now showing himself as an egotistical racist!

Im already missing living on the beach... seeing the ocean on a warm sunny morning... my mate had an epiphany about ADD and how perhaps the adderall will help her as it helps me when we find that we have lack of focus... but perhaps I've had moments of being hyperfocused... for my chess club, my surf club, my desire to do to win that magical surf swim race... now settling into a pattern of dealing with the jet lag here in this little town in the Ozarks... reclimatizing to have a better outlook on it all... Colin was up till about 3 am which is about 7pm in Oz... and so I took him to bed and he woke up comfortably next to me in his new surrounding and home for the moment... he looks up and sees me and then goes back to sleep... and it can be good where my honey has a chance to rejuvenate in her Ozark home...and I learn to make peace with the family.. as I need to do with others ... and forgive.. or u can let it get to u like  Charlie, Nicolas Cage, Mel Gibson and others that endure the ra…

I have a chance to write at the Microtel lobby computer... wow.. it's a lot easier than
the laptop that misses an o and has a mistake every time that I write some eloquent pieces...
it was wonderful seeing LA,s family...
I am so indebted to their kindness
and I just have to learn how to play it forward...
I guess the key word is play...
and learning how to play with patience
I love to play but I have to teach my other half to play with patience also!
so many things to chat about and I was worried that we'd have to drive back to hillbilly country
when I could have visited them more...
I need to call Crow Mac and ask him to visit us again at our little home away from home
as I learn how to take care of business
and relax
and especially my wife to relax... but their points where we need to escape just momentarily for the good of the relationship
when everything we say gets twisted and doesnt ever come out the way you want it!
I saw this beautiful pic of Petra and wanted to add int…

wow... finally here... looking out the window and across the ocean...
and the next moment, we are here...
 a little rest at a Microtel hotel to get over jet lag...
Im missing out some surf club activities this Sunday...(which is now Monday morning in Oz)
hardly slept at all on the flight, but at least we were on a nonstop domestic flight!



it's great having Stu as a friend to give us a ride to the train station!
 

Play it forward!

u think about nice things... and serendipitous occasions... and when I was worried about a razor...my friend, stu had a razor waiting for me.. and then friends .. I need to help others when I have the chance.... and makes me want to actuallyh believe there is a god!

Ok..

Iok… so I won the senior event for our club… and the coolest thing was when cap’n Pete grabbed my shoulders just as we were coming in….

… there were better open swimmers but I won for folks over 30!
Image
ok... so Im escaping from reality as much as possible... but not everyone loves the dream.... but if its my family... they are the most important to me... there is so much to do but my better half has trouble walking down the steps to the beach... but shes getting better.. we used up a little of the tank we actually filled up in early november... its more traumatic for us to deal with driving in the bizarre way of Oz than suspecting im often swimming with the sharks...
 <> today I will be sleep deprived for the end of the season club championships...
will I be lethargic or take a guarana be stimulated enough to take the surf... and then we have club pics..
always a little nervous about being with lots of people...and not appearing as a foolish old rip van beach bum!

it was feeling good working out this avo and what a beautiful day here on the Gold Coast!.. I just wish that it could go on!.. I was really working out hard in the ocean this evening trying to grab as much as I could from the ocean... feeling the rip and the various waves as I took them in!

   ok... when i was just a young virgin I had this obsession with Julie Christie...especially after seeing her on a  cold winter night in Rochester, New York.. I imagined walking 100s of miles in the snow to be with her...I realize after watching her in her recent movie that she was the perfect woman to grow old with...  so understanding and just drop dead beautifull.... for her to say my name in the most sexiest sultry English voice that she has... she was the most beautiful older generation actress ive seen!!! that is one of the few women that has kept her beauty through time....mmmmm   but would understand my mental frailties?? perhaps not and if she seemed to be the perfect soul mate, I would perhaps be needy... wondering when i was going to see her next.. or just waiting for her to come in  from the blizzar in her sexy white russian fur hat next to warm fire and sheet for me to warm up her chilled yummy body... ok... a little carried away... even happilly married men (and w…

The Aussie's (national surf life championships) are the best and coolest sports that I have ever been involved in!

I wish that I could be better organized so we could do all the things that life has to offer...
i realize today that ive missplaced or lost the cell phone, remembering that I was charging the mobile phone at the Dr's office because our electricity went out.. and then lost a wallet with my debit card and a little cash... all knowing that I am prone to losing things in my life.. and I have to focus to hold onto what is the dearest and most precious in my new life...Im escaping reality and soon have to go back to face all the easily overwhelming things life has let me pile up....
and then I learn to accept we are just a small little microscopic layer on earth's geologic layer...
or who could believe that the earth is only 5k years old....according to Palin's religion!

yeh.. its cool... a few more good days.. maybe?

The dangers of Prograsstination

  i suppose the Aussies were anticlimactic coming in last behind my good friend,Stu. He had a little smile as we waited for the waves in that very choppy weather...fighting for last place... or just letting my friend get ahead of me as we struggled to the shore through the turbulent water....
as the others waited for us to run...

later in the morning, I was fighting again for second last place in the first leg of the Taplin relay...
I saw the other competitor when we turned around for the first buoy


I saw the other struggling competitor when we turned around for the first buoy.. I just had the mental energy to relax and hang with him after seeing the rest of the wave of swimmers leaving me in the distance,  that I could overtake him at anytime just keeping with this other poor bloke’s struggling like me in the waves

  We took a wave and let it tumble as both and then we looked at each other with the shock of being spun around but having fun …  
I came in to tag my teammate, Wa…
"try to understand why some people "backstab" or double-cross. A backstabber is someone who pretends to be your friend, or to be on your side, and then turns around and does or says things that lead to you being harmed, exposed, or treated badly as a result of things they suggest or reveal. Backstabbing is a form of manipulation and reveals a person who is disloyal, insecure, and very unsure of their own place. Understanding the motivations behind backstabbing can help you to find ways to deal with it, as well as showing you that the backstabber is very often a person with poor emotional resources and is probably a very unhappy individual. While that doesn't excuse their behavior, it can reassure you that the backstabber is probably like this with many people and needs to be treated objectively as someone to careful of. Reasons why people resort to backstabbing include: "  (Huffpo)
