Monday's Missives

In November 2015 I provided a financial assist to somebody that I really could not afford. A few days later I got this in the mail. There was no explanation for what I overpaid and none for even when it was. 
  • Recently (today is 01/20/2016) a much younger woman (although not too young) asked me to hang out with her. She isn't too good for me in my opinion. She is cute enough - I wouldn't be ashamed to be seen with her but 25-30 years ago were we about the same age she would not have given me the time of day. I just would not have been cool enough for her.
  • Also recently a literally gorgeous friendly acquaintance has indicated she would like to spend time with me by asking me to do something kind of big with her that was on the face of it more than hanging out. She is too young and too good for me.
  • I have no idea what to do with the preceding situations.
  • I will ask though, Where were ya'll when I was 20 years old?
  • Over the weekend I read  read at a book of ee cummings poetry. Thoughts: I get it. Great. People who know me would never believe other than a couple of quotes it took me this long to get around to him. Interesting because he was also an excellent painter. I'll come back to his work.
  • This morning a raccoon ran through the parking lot as I was making my way to the coal mine to start loading my 16 tons. He thought about dropping down into the sewer then decided against it and booked over to the office building across the street and hid in the hedges that abut the building. I would hate to be landscaper who rousts him out of there with a hedge clipper or string trimmer. He was big and perturbed looking
  • String trimmer- most people it seems say that now. In my generation, the brand didn't matter- they were all weed-eaters.
    Okra: it is for sale.
  • The years are flying by.
  • I will be dead before I know it and so will you.
  • You won't remember dying.

In 10 years you will seriously reevaluate your decision on not hooking up with the young lass.

Trust me on this...

BTW, your old bad email address (my3monsters) is still sending me error message emails everytime I post a comment. Uh, when you get a moment can you update that setting... Please?

Hey don- i had to look it up but he wrote (his part at least) nearly 100 years ago.


Mike- So yeah- I know but I am probably saving some heart and headaches. It is funny you mention that though. Recently I bumped into her and after I told her what I did over the weekend she told me again she wanted to be included next time. Dude- she is too young and too hot for me. Regardless- it would be heartaches and headaches (for me at least).
OK. I am glutton for punishment. You talked me into it.
Sorry about the error message thing. The first time you mentioned it I looked and in one of the settings my new email address was there. I dug a minute this time and found the error message setting- all better now.

Thanks man. Too young and too hot? Is there such a thing?
