Happy Birthday, Ron! I'm kinda reluctant to talk to my older brother...and haven't even talked to him about the tenants almost burning down my Okie home without even an apology..

the last thing the matriarch of that angry family said to me was:

"You'll get your money dude!... "
when the fat lady sings and the waters rise to the Okie Zone!!
they paid only for a couple of months that whole year! amazed at why I didnt evict them...running a non profit charity house for them to burn down!! does that make me angry or do I become a peaceful warrior and make myself a better person?? (Now is the time for an excerpt from Kipling)If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, (that's the big one in my life)
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

(well, I at least fixed up my home and certainly paid the price)

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

I have been getting the lecture about insurance from others so I certainly don't want to get it from my brother, but I need to call him for his birthday...He's a rich banking Republican who wouldn't even give me a loan if I asked for it...
most of the inheritance was used to pay him off...
If I ask for a loan, he'll tell me to get a job, but then if I work here I would have pay what I make in Queensland Land taxes!

others resent me for just taking the time off to enjoy my new little family and be a father..
and when I'm 65 , I might be too old to enjoy life...
do I need to justify my behavior??
