who's the copilot on this bus ride??
wow... finally at the library while the hurricane turns into a tropical(?) depression...
i've been chatting with Candi, who has an internet radio station..
she was looking for houses on the net, found mine, and was thinking that she was  looking at homes in Tulsa..
 she  set an appointment for her fiancee to come look at it not realizing we were in OKC!

she was apologetic, but I said that maybe she could be one of the support networks for my eventual 15 or 20 minutes of fame...
things appear to be happening for reasons more and more in my life...
here's another angry witch
especially after being invited into a hippy school bus in the Walmart parking lot
while shopping for groceries for my hungry family..
i really enjoyed getting sidetrack by this nomadic tribe of about 12 or 13...some recently arriving to this world , sucking voraciously their mother's life giving elixir on alternate awaiting aureoles...

(often the pic that gets pulled up when they search for my blog!;)
i was doing my best to focus on her penetrating eyes, a little nervous that a cop might be knocking on the door of the old bus anytime..
finally the meeting was broken up by the chieftess of the tribe's desire for tobacco instead of just alternate smokes....
it was serendipitous, and wonder if i'll come across this bus again in my travels...
im still hoping for an email from them...
and they were the first ones to have mentioned the word, "serindiptous" meeting almost they were reading my blog and momentarily on the same synchronous wavelength..



i told them my story of the word," serendip"and how it magically evolved!


Candi had mentioned in her email that I should have some more pics...now that im using the nice library computer, which is far more efficient than my own outdated laptop

aah... finally getting internet access while  we await the hurricane... when it comes through the dry parched land....
so many things to do...
I need to write some more about the aquatic hominids (mermaids/men , Karen;)
the usual worries about kids messing with the mailbox and nosing their way into my home...
and worries about finding the right people for my temporary parking space each summer...
a neighborhood kid checked out my place without permission
walking in when a neighbor was showing my place...
and all the usual worries happen when nosy people check out my mail or former place of habitation...
I'm happy that i have a few friendly neighbors to help
 keep an eye on things ...
but it's hard to keep the errant squirrel out of the place
but I guess that's what the little white cat is for...

hanging out here again at the pool while it rains over the lake below...
will i have to seek protection for my new/old compaq...
with little battery??

i need to have a full check up
with paranoid worries about why i'm having so many sinus headaches...
and need to see a chiro and dr. to see if anything is going on...
while i worry about my finity on this earth...
so many things to do, while the laziness incapacitates me
from doing what is most necessary..
and then worrying about a bucket list...
that hopefully i'll do all of them before 90!!
if i even get close to the age of Dad, before he left this short existence on earth..

ok.. i need to spend a little time each day
until i head back to the okie zone to finish taking care of business..
 i feel proud of myself that i have been taking care of business..
getting all the contracts ready and almost moving in a nice young family
but it fell through..
i realize that i cant always please the neighbors with who likes my house the most...
but always while there is the distraction of finding the right people to temporarily or permanently occupy my old home...
i can only take care of one thing at a time...
when i try to multitask i could feel overwhelmed... and could get a nervous breakdown....
like when i couldn't please the powers that be of the Kansas City, Kansas school district, and then learning how adderall helped me through that situation without melting...
ok... i gotta take care of my ps and qs, before we are off to oz..
i have to make sure my place has angry redneck squirrel insurance...
now there is a white possibly  pregnant cat hanging out in front of my place like (she ) owns it..
then weirds thoughts like the way she lays out on my front porch
as if she was a lost soul that loves my okie home as much as i do...
the other sunny morning she was nestled in the cool earth by the rose bush...
did i read somewhere that cats sleep 16 hours a day,, then you wonder how it's sleep patterns might be affected catnip...
or the smoke that seeps out my kitchen window...
gotta run the fans and keep the window on the very relatively cool days and cool nights...
the only thing that effects the dog days of sumer become cat(?) days of the ebbing days of summer...
while we wait for autumn to blow in the from the north...
charles is trying to entice me in hanging around for the changing leaf colors...

aaah torn between two desires...the colorful changing leave while getting fatter and weaker,...
or off to OZ, and greet the rising sun as she wakes up earlier each morning...
while my wife gets her 16 hours of nap time...perhaps the time of the month, when she's in the vegetative mode instead of party mode... she even declined a second beer last night,
while i sat with colin until he fell asleep watching cartoons on the huge flat TV in Joe Tom's den...
we were going to groceries at the walmarket in this little town at the edge of the foothills..
it's a rainy comfortable drizzle day where one does not feel the guilt when he/she sleeps in..
 some of the oct. and nov. issue of the  homegrown has helped give me the philosophical rant that I need to fill up pages to the audience that is out there..
i feel a little guilt about maybe about asking help from friends in a situation..
the main thing is that I need to find good tenants regardless of their race, creed or color
who will take care of my little home away from my true home...
perhaps some good people will eventually live in the home that arrived as a diamond arising from the ashes...
i want there to be less hate and more acceptance in all my neighborhoods of both hemispheres..
regardless of our
angry neighbors come and go... and if you just wait it out and smile the way you always do, C..
i want good tenants that will take care of my parking space until i find and they find the right long term parking space... where we wake up to an attitude...

but it's

i guess sleeping overnight on a couch at the inlaws when we have our own cosy condo...
south park  rug rat in laws have taken over the place, and I surrender by leaving hoping that I'll be able to see my boy before dark and have the daily swim, which we missed yesterday on account of the unseasonably cool weather...
im fixing to have a swim... at least 200 meters... my laziness takes hold when i don't have the immediate knowledge that what i write is out there...
i have to wait 10 to `15 minutes before I can even write...
while i sip on my favorite brew...
the evening with colin turned out like i expected the manipulative inlaws to have their way
and enjoy my colin for 24 hours...
when i was just expecting to relinquish him for the evening...
it waS a losing situation...
i couldnt compete with my cousins at Nana and Papas...
im taking away precious time with the grandparents...
i call over there and the 13 year old neice sounds just like my 39 year old wife...
scary....a very precocious cousin that has her hold and control of my son's attention...
am i just a little jealous?? duh...

 i've lost my favorite cigarette tool somewhere in my condo
when after socialing with our temporary neighborly southern ladies who loved my wife
and a little of the best crop of this state!!... i guess it has a reputation??
she said it all is sold up north so all that's left is the cheap compressed mexican
i will barely have any for my long boring ride back to the okie zone
and i've lost all connections....unless i take a road trip to kc to visit my once and future publishser who  never returns my calls...
i guess i let my delusional bubble get popped... letting the baby miscarry or ???
or is it the longest incubation period of any hominid species....

well i just gotta call that the rest of the tribe will be coming over...
and i will have to entreat my son to come for a quick swim..

because it's a cloudy day, i'm the only hominid at the pool.. it's nice to have it all to yourself..
i liked the convenience where i could just walk to the pool within 30 secs..
now it's a 3 to 5 minute walk..
when we all start out happy it has a good effect on the whole family...
i've almost ran out of any herb from the different varieties of cheap leaf to arkansas homegrown   buds from last November
sadly this puter only has a 30 minute charge..
i've fixed a delicious burrito breakfast with ground beef, fried turkey bacon, mozarella and 4 jumbo eggs cooked seperately...
even fussy Colin ate a lot!!
after the warming(cooling) rain our family feels more together than it ever has
especially after last night's silly argument (over limiting our intake of beer cuz it's 60 miles round trip
and my better half is often incapacitated the next day)

My sinuses are really bothering me …

I feel that I need to see the doctor for a full checkup…

After that accident from a large pickup in the parking lot…

I feel like my spinal column is out of whack..

But at least im feeling in good shape!
i wrote so much and it's so frustrating that I can't do the cut and paste...
i wish that I could just get a little help but I'm afraid it would cost an arm and a leg just to get a little help?

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

bummer.. i had written a little on this new/old puter and I couldnt do the cut and paste from my word 2007!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

ok... if i just take care of one thing at a time...
before my favorite time to watch the national news over a 16 oz.. coors..
the pool has a hotspot so i can connect with my readers and sometime support network..
i've been trying to reach LA , my publisher, with little luck...

I have to write more and figure out how to structure this creative novel...
I have about a month left with no clue...
so it most likely won't be written before I leave for Oz...
Maybe I could just put out a 100 page novellete
as an introduction to this trilogy...
like the Hobbit was the prequel to Lord of the Rings....
don't roll your eyes at my delusional thoughts of a great american/aussie novel!
ok lata

(all of this might not make sense to you... but at the moment it's really for me and then for the interested few that see my writing while doing searches for stoner girls or neocons!

Friday, August 10th...( i suppose im letting too much info come onto this blog and perhaps needlessly worry that it will be used against me later)

 …. It’s night time… bonding more with dad in law over some tennis…

No match… just hitting across to each other.. he even let me use his larger racquet and changed to the midsize racquet I was hitting with… he even gave my even 3 tasty buds the other night and even brought beers for my wife and me… now maybe “play it forward” will happen as Im more inclined to buy him a premium 2xx beer!

Still watching the Olympics happy overall with the day… making a couple of productive calls, especially getting the benefit of avoiding the high interest on a delinquent property tax…

Saving our family a couple of hundred!

As far as my writing ??? feeling the pressure of starting something too soon when I wasn’t really ready… jumping into the surf maybe a little too soon… but I have to keep my head together and know that eventually Ill reach the buoys after these challenging waves!

I have to start writing even when I don’t have internet and I am not near a hotspot…

I put it out here on my 2007 version of word…

And Ill get away from the boob tube and my  intense passion for the Olympics…

Wishing that I had direct tv and could record all of these Olympics.. oh well…

Watching these swimmers  on TV sometimes helps me think of our aquatic hominid cousins…!

 thursday: boring ramblings!

Im finally at the pool waiting for my family while I have about 40 minutes of charge on this used  puter… I got it so I could have the cord for the old run…

We’ll have to make a beer run (30 miles round trip) or we can savor our last beers hidden

Away  in my trunk… I realize I’ve been missing my jumper cables for my old faithful Infinity…

But I’ll let myself get distracted with Huffington Post, Facebook and Craigslist..

my son is learning to swim here at this large pool in fairfield bay, while i try to catch a little of the internet... and tell you how little i've put towards the book.. it's hard to write with all the distractions...
it was great that crowmac called and gave me a little inspiration towards the book and maybe we can have one very productive weekend@!!
my honey is going away with the inlaws and her first son to watch him star in a b-ball game....

'yes, offficer, I was just getting internet access from the pools hotspot and this was the nearest parking spot"  
oh yes, I live here in the apartments"
i wonder the lines when the police come by and ask what im doing here
after having half a coors but so anxious just to get on the internet for a few minutes before my battery runs out
 its almost midnight and it would be great to have wireless in our own "holiday" apartment..
my son, Colin was just watching "lightning Mcqueen" at the swimming pool..
they have movies for the kids every Tuesday..
Fairfield Bay is a cool place
and it would be a wonerful spot to write my book...
i guess im just more motivated when i know it's going out there immediately...
we are the age of instant gratification!

So the evening was hot and only had a 26% charge.. the fear of a cop coming by again overtook me… even though they have been friendly… I get a little paranoid, which is maybe just a heightened sense of reality of what could actually happen…

This story is coming into my brain gradually, LA… so maybe there might be a miracle that the pages will be finished before we are off to OZ!!

By the way, Happy Birthday, Brother Ron!

8/8/2012 10:47:45 AM

So I’m watching the vball on the Olympics while I add hot water is a  to our  Jacuzzi with a skylight  in the upstairs bathroom!... I have to write on my Microsoft word 2007 while awaiting the call from my chief of musings: LA… who will help me with the book when it’s written…. But I hope for a little direction from my supportive readers..

So I figure that if I’m showing my ramblings before the creative starts, it might help you understand what I might be going through in my  creative process….

I have a lot of things to do before  taking off again… but the medium of Fairfield is good for the incubation and hatching of my baby! (how do u like that metaphor?)

But I’ll let myself get distracted with Huffington Post, Facebook and Craigslist
i wish this charger would last a little longer..im by the pool looking for a shady spot with the only electrical outlet..
sometimes things can be frustrating... need to get temporarily hooked up with the net in my condo ...
time has accelerated to the dog days of summer back by the pool where i have been imaging to this self actualized pt of a relaxed low carbon imprint family enjoying vacation...
i still have to take care of a lot of things while i now worry about a small errant green plastic football coming this way from the kiddy pool..and my abdomen gets steadily larger in this semilethargic state...
at least yesterday i swam 500 meters , the longest in a while after our "fortnight"(aussie for 2 weeks)
...just finally  gave up after a few more splashes came my way and moved the puter away from the charger...
 so u here me rambling while i try to get some juices going about the innocent young Aussie/Yank youth standing on the very large turtle
as if he were Hercules  looking out at some aquatic hominids  very briefly staring back at him or are they echolocuting to him to get off the poor dead turtle who was their century old friend who became part of their tribe... did this boy have psychic powers??
this bothered this man's life as he grew older...
these sounds that he heard from these people of the sea continued to haunt him
this brought him images of a long lost tribe of very ancient Greece about the time of the ancient pyramids of Egypt,long before the rise of their empire
 when the "myths"(??) of Hercules and the pagan gods were evolving through generations of story telling from their ancestral prophets or seers of the gathering tribes of Asia Minor...
all of these images of the past and of this long lost tribe invaded his mind and the intense desire to meet with these people consumed his adult life....
and he felt mired in his house of disrepair in Oklahoma...

Wow.. happy that we are in our own place..


Just wish that we had internet access.. u can’t have everything…

We are back in Fairfield Bay after taking a trip across the country

Thru New Mexico and Colorado.

Now it's Monday.. and ive taken a minute amount of adderall hopefully to spark my creativeness..i don't seem to have the motivation unless i know that i'm connected to the internet before I can write.. that doesn't make much sense.. I have to overcome this need and just write as much as possible whether I have the net or not!

when we were at the taos and silverton hostels, i told the campfire stories of my creative non fiction account of the mermaids.. my better half admired this part of me that she never realized that I had..
story telling is an art that can be inherited... I told the story to Buffy's newly adopted family (in the last 2 years) and it was a great success as it was on our walkabout to higher altitudes in the mountains... I wonder about letting out too much info about the story for fear that someone else will write the story first..
i like the way this new/used puter works as far as the typing but the battery lasts for less than an hour.. and my other computer had a battery that lasted for hours.. oh well..my wife and child are enjoying themselves this hot avo in  the wonderfully large and long pool in a nice little condo with a jacuzzi...we have to count our blessings and always look at the positives in life!





Wednesday, August 01, 2012

we're finally out of the cheAP/(expensive $61) motel on the outskirts of taos...
my honey is ahead of me this time while i try to absorb as much of the olympic swimming
and beach volleyball, before we put on the Beach Boys!!
not looking forward to the heat of the Okie and Arkie zones....
living in the cool mts on top of the world is one of the best feeling...
it's easier for me to at least type on this puter, thanks eric and La for your help
hopefully the inspired writings will start
at wont run out of schwag along the way...
hope my tight daddy in law will give a little more of november's herb
since he wouldnt let us drive my honey's jeep in the mt roads...
he's only paid off half and he already thinks it's his!
