Have a little bit of time away from helping kids sort through their myriad of life drama, so I thought I'd get working on the blog.
A old friend of mine, from this site asked where my blog was. Told them it was deleted along with my old profile and she immediately chastised for not getting it back up. There's a joke in there somewhere, but I'm going to let it pass. Anyways, it seems I'm susceptible to goading, so here we go.

I have played the guitar and sang for god knows how many years. I was sure I was going to be a rock star in high school/college, but I'll let you guess how that turned out.

Since then, it's been hit and miss. I'll put the guitar down for a couple of years at a time, which is surprising if you've seen my bedroom. haha Only a chosen few will understand that line. Then i pick it up again and learn some new stuff and hopefully write some new songs. I'll start off with a song i wrote a few years back about a recurring dream. And a newer one. I'll try to remember to update it, but to be honest, I can go years with writing nothing, then spit out 15 songs in a month.

BTW. All the lyrics I post have been copyrighted.
Take me as I am

Ok, this one is more about relationships over the last 5 years. very honest about my thoughts that I really don't think I want to get married again. Been divorced for quite a while. Yet it always seems that, though I make that point up front. And it's agreed upon, most have ended up with me being the bad guy, who doesn't want to get married. I don't mind being a bad boy, but i hate being the bad guy.

You ask me who I want to be,
always just the man you see.
It's been so long since I tore down those walls.
Been here once or twice my friend,
Never like the way it ends.
When smiles turn into tears and the world seems to fall.
Watch it fall.

It's really not that hard to just take me as I am,
You tell me what you need to live,
It's just the one thing I can't give.
And I don't want to be the one who makes you cry.
So if you have to leave, I understand.
It's a shame you couldn't take me as I am.

I'd love to see you one more night,
I know that won't make it right,
But i really hate to see us end like this.
You never had to suffer lies,
my heart was never in disguise.
So if you have to leave, why can't it be with a kiss.
Oh my friend.

It's really not that hard to just take me as I am,
You tell me what you need to live,
It's just the one thing I can't give.
And I don't want to be the one who makes you cry.
So if you have to leave, I understand.
It's a shame you couldn't take me as I am.

Instrumental, then
Repeat Chorus with

It's a shame you couldn't take me as I am.
Why couldn't you just take me as I am.

Well this was a fun find. Going through some old memory stuff last night, looking for a letter. I found part of a song. Reading through it, i was dumbfounded. This is the very first song I wrote! I was 17 at the time, and reading it was thinking, "Damn, I was a moody little bastard".

Doesn't have the second verse, and for the life of me, I can't remember it. What was funny, I picked up a guitar, and within 5 minutes was playing it. Can't believe I remember the melody. Half the time I can't remember songs I wrote last year. I'm still trying to figure out what a 17 year old was thinking were the good old days.

Back Home.

We live on dreams while we're young,
Try to turn ourselves into someone.
But the things we do,
Can't erase the things that we've done.

So we leave our homes to try and find,
A better world then we left behind.
But we find that,
Happiness is just a frame of mind.

But don't you try to find your way,
Back Home.
Back to all those good old days that have gone.
Live your life one day at a time,
Remembering nothing can be done.
About all those good old days that have gone.

In keeping with my complaining about the cold weather, here's a pair of my new work thermals. Keeping it easy this week, just getting undressed after work today.

Just a Funny thought I had on Profiles.

Obviously when you sign up on a dating site, you try to put your best foot forward. Well, I would assume most of us do. And yeah, there's some who may embellish a bit and some that are just outright fake. But lets not digress into another fake profile post.

You try to post some good pics. And you have to write the dreaded profile. For me, I just have fun with my profile Try to always be different than the typical. "I'm a great guy." "I'm a really interesting guy" " I like cats." And I certainly stay away from the ever successful,"I'm really horny and want to fuck" I know that's a all time winner, but I'd rather just do it the hard way, I guess.

But what if we were completely honest? The other foot, if you will. LOL I've been thinking about this for a couple of days, reading through peoples profiles. Some I'm sure could be quite funny.

These are not directed at anyone in general, just sorta my thoughts on what some would say. If we're being honest.

From the married guys.

Hi, yes I'm married. I'd like to tell you a sob story, but to be honest, I just have that itch. I'm bored and need to fuck someone other than my wife. If she catches me, I'm gonna lose everything in the divorce. So when I'm asking for discretion, I really mean don't let my wife know .

From the Poor Guy who believed the ads. I was an idiot and believed the hype. What can I say. I was horny, had a few beers and damn if I didn't buy a annual Gold membership. I really , really need one of you woman to step up and have sex with me, so I don't look like a complete fool.

From the Still Undecided

I know I posted some pics, and I wrote this wonderful profile to get you all interested. I'll even chat with you on IM, or on messages. But just prepare yourself. I'm going to talk a lot about how hot your pics are. I'm going to tell you that yeah, I think I would like to meet up with you. But then, after we set up a meet, I'm going to just ghost you. I mean flat out, disappear off the chats, full blown Casper the Ghost you. Thanks.

From the Friends Collector

I have no interest in meeting you, but please accept my friends request. I don't care what you look like, don't care if you're even remotely nice, hell I don't even care if you're a bot. Just please accept my request. I'm trying for the record.

From the Scammer

Ok, Ok. I'm not some distraught hot bikini model, stuck in a foreign country. But I do have a quota I have to meet, and to be honest, people are catching on and I'm way behind. I'm gonna get fired if I don't find a victim, er... a kind soul to help me out. Please, also act like you really believe me, I need the confidence boost. Like I said, I'm in a slump.

I'm sure I missed some obvious ones, but these are the ones that came to mind. LOL Feel free to fill in any I missed.

I'm sure there are things we could all put in our profiles if we were being completely honest. But hell, no one wants to put their worst foot forward. Do they?
And it Begins....

In case there is anyone on here that isn't aware by now. I am not a fan of cold weather. And for further clarification, I'm in South Texas so cold to me is anything under 60F. That would be what in C...lets see divide by..carry the 2...yeah, still too friggin cold .

Yesterday was a great day. Sun was out, it was in the 80's. So not too bad. And I spent the entire day on the phone, on the computer. Working on a "family" drama. Frustrating beyond belief, due to the fact that I spent the whole day on it, and never got anything resolved. Enjoyed the weather outside twice for a total of maybe 30 minutes. /sigh.

Then this morning, I get up, stumble out to the kitchen to start my coffee and I hear it. Wind howling, rain pounding on the windows. I don't even want to look. But like the moth being drawn to the flame only to meet a horrible end, I have to look. Yep, looks nasty.

Against my better judgement I open the back door. Holy hell...I shut it just as quick. It's 50F, wind is blowing 20+ mph, and it's raining. Just peachy.

A hour later my daughters puppy is awake, and of course excited about going outside to pee. So i bundle up, with her looking at me like what the hell are you doing. Hurry up or I'm peeing on the floor!!! That is until I open the door and she's like, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON OUT THERE.

It's her first cold weather and she being smarter than me, is thinking, Nah, I'm good. I'll just pee over here in the corner. So I finally have to pick her up, carry her outside and set her in the grass. She runs for the back door. I pick her up take her back to the grass, put her down. She runs for the back door. I'd like to be mad at her, but's friggin cold outside. Finally she figures it out. She isn't going back in till she does her deed, and pees. Thank God, we can go back in.

Hour later, I'm putting on my three layers of shirts and a jacket, and I'm off to work. Drove around a bit. Checked some houses, mainly just pulled into the driveway, sat there with the heater going kind of checking. By noon, it was actually colder than it was when I was convincing the puppy to pee. So I decided to take the rest of the day off.

Yeah...I don't do cold weather well at all.

And yes, I know all you fine Canadians, what I'm describing is probably just a balmy Fall day up there, but still. LOL

Am I the only one that truly hates cold weather?

Pulling Eye Teeth to get a Hair Cut.

Have you ever had one of those days/times when you're getting really pissed off about something, but in the end, it works out for the best?

Had a fun one today.

sorta picky about who cuts my hair. Yeah I know a guy, with short hair. Shouldn't be that big of a deal. Maybe it stems from my and early twenty , when it was long and curly. Think Peter Frampton. haha.

So anyway, a few months back I find a stylist that I liked. Did a great job. I get it cut every three weeks, and the first three visits went off without a hitch.

Quick disclaimer, I own a service business so I really never know what my schedule will be like. I know it's my problem, that it's damn near impossible for me to schedule a appointment for tomorrow, but still.

Anyways, back to the story. So cut before last, I call up and the girl tells me Jessica is there and has no appointments for the afternoon. like great, put me down for 2. But no, not that easy. She needs more info than the DMV and my card number. driving, so like , "never needed an appointment before, what' up with the 12 page info sheet." She explains oh...its just policy. I tell her busy, but I'll stop in later as a walk in. Stop in a hour later. 5 minute wait and in.

Yes, they take walk in's.

Last week it's time for a cut, so I call them up. No everyone is busy, but the wait is only a hour or so. LOL. I say no thanks, I'll let it go a week more and just be a little shaggy.

So now to today. I call at 10, when they open and Jessica, my stylist and just happens to be one of the managers answers the phone. We talk for a bit, she's a friendly lady. Then I ask if she has any appointments set for between 11 and 1. She says no..I say great, can you put me down for 11:15. To which she replies, We don't take same day appointments. first laughing and she asks whats so funny. I tell her that a couple of cuts ago, they were setting a same day appointment, but I was too busy to answer all the questions. She says, "really? We're not supposed to do that". I say, "so let me see if I understand this. You have no appointments, schedule is wide open, but you're not allowed to take an appointment because its for the same day".

She says, "well when you say it like that it does seem a little stupid, but it's just our policy". I can come in as a walk in, the wait is only a hour or so. I I tell her, I'll get back to her, if I can't find someone else to cut my hair. She's trying to talk me out of it, I tip 100% for hair cuts, sure it's not my charming personality she doesn't want to lose. But by now just fed up with the myriad of policy's and hoops , just to get a haircut.

So I drive for 1/2 mile, go into a giant salon and ask how long the wait is. 5 minutes. like sign me up. 5 minutes later, getting a hair cut by Daniela .

She does a phenomenal job. She takes same day appointments and can't understand why anyone wouldn't. (sorta my thinking). Gives me a great shampoo, I love scalp massages btw. And then to top it all off, puts me back in the chair, Brushes me out and proceeds to give me a 5 minute shoulder and neck massage. Say's it's just part of the service.

like ding, ding, ding!!! We have a winner!!!

And to top it off..even tipping her 100%, she's 20 dollars cheaper than the rules factory where I was getting it cut. LOL

So things started off horribly, and ended up not only getting resolved. It's better now than when I started. Gotta love it.

Sometimes things happen for a reason. And sometimes change is a great thing.

Thanks for listening to me rant.

Have you ever stuck with something for ever, resisting change..but then when you pull the trigger, you find you should have done it long ago. ?

A Walk on the Beach
Posted:Oct 9, 2018 2:52 pm
Last Updated:Oct 16, 2018 11:36 am

Suddenly jolted back into reality, still in a kind of fog, he realized he was on the beach. It was a warm, late summer evening. It was not unlike many evenings he walked this beach, so in a weird way it felt normal. Just different, somehow. Like why was he wearing the linen pants with a button down cotton shirt? Just felt a little overdressed.

Looking up he noticed he was at beach marker 19. That didn't make much sense either. Marker 11 was his spot. It's where the condo's were, that he stayed in for years. It's where he camped, when the weather was cool enough. And it's where so many of his memory's of her lived. Drawn to the spot, he began slowly walking along the beach, heading that way.

It was strange how so many memories of her were flooding back to him. Like a movie, playing in his head. He remembered the first time he took her to the beach. Still trying to fool each other that they were just friends, she had agreed to join him for a weekend at the beach. A game that fell apart the first evening, walking down to the beach.

Standing there watching the last bit of light vanish. The stars starting to come to life. He remembered it like it was yesterday. Looking into her eyes. Feeling like the world was slowing down. He remembered the exact feeling as their lips touched, in what was to be their first kiss. The taste of her lips, the smell of her hair. How even the noise of the waves and the wind had seemed to stop in that moment. There was nothing but her.

Still walking, he remembered one of the times they came camping together. Drinking wine, sitting on a blanket under the stars. It was a cold evening. The beach deserted this time of year. A fire was burning, but it wasn't it's warmth that kept him there. It was her, intertwined with him, that did more than keep him warm. She made him forget it was cold. Making love in a way that seemed to be so much more. Like two souls just melded into one. He remembered that it was that night, looking into her eyes he had promised her, "I will love you until the day I die".

This evening, it was like he could hear himself saying those words again. Photographs of memories just flying through his head. A myriad of joys and pleasure, that spanned the years they had spent together. Thinking to himself, God I love that woman.

He noticed, as he was finally approaching Beach Marker 11, a crowd of people down by the water. Normally one to like the solitude of a walk on the beach, he felt a deep to see what they were doing. As he got closer, he started to recognize some of the people. All converged around someone. His heart jumped a little, as it still did, when he realized it was her. What on earth was she doing here?

Strange, they had all moved into the water. She was standing knee deep in the water. Waves wetting down that wonderful white sundress he had bought her some years back.He called out her name, but she just continued doing what she was doing, like he wasn't there. She was pouring something into the waves.

In that instant, clarity overtook him. The tears in her eyes. Her looking right at him, but not seeing him. He knew at that moment, he wasn't there in any form she could see. She was releasing, his ashes back into waves. He remembered telling her that was what he wanted, when he died. Remember her telling him to hush as she gripped his hand tighter.

They were both crying now, as everything started to slowly drift away. Like every thing they shared was being carried on the waves. The pain and sadness overwhelming him. Thoughts screaming at him that he would never hold her again. Through the tears,strangely, a smile came.

He had told her he would never break a promise. And he realized he had, when he told her he would love her until he died. Because wherever this new journey was taking him, he knew he'd still love her when he arrived.

I was reading the news this morning and came across this story. I'm sure some of you have seen this. Apparently, it's some young 20's girlfriends list of "rules" for her boyfriend.

I was never very good at following rules when I was that age. And thinking my response to her after reading one or two of the rules would have been.

You will NOT be my girlfriend any longer. promise

I know some guidelines are usually a good idea in relationships, but really. hahaha.

Would any of you even think about following this list of rules?
