Hey there devoted and dear readers of this blog. It has been a great while since I have posted here. Many, I fear, believed me to be dead, deceased, expired, transferred to that great blogpost in the sky. Nothing can be further from the truth. In reality, the explanation is simple – I am (sometimes) lazy. I’d rather read than write.
Okay, so I’ve returned. To say …. what? Nothing really, I am merely diverting my attention from what I really should be doing – drafting documents for work. Why can’t I stay focused on my job at hand? Perhaps I suffer from ADHD?! That’s it – I’m a victim of a condition over which I have no control; ergo I am not responsible for my inactions. HAHA. Maybe I can actually obtain government financial assistance. Not that receiving a dime would in any way help or ameliorate the situation. It would just make me feel better. And that is the most important criteria today – feelings. Not your feelings, mind you, only mine. Because, truly, who gives a damn about you. You are a member of the 1% whilst I am a member of the 99%. Actually, the butt end of that 99% which means that 98% are still better off than I. And that hurts my feelings so America – give me money so that you can feel better about yourselves. That way we all win.
Am I making any sense? Because if you can understand what I am saying, then you have serious problems. I am pretty much just free versing and running off at the keyboard, typing about anything that pops into my head. All to avoid doing what I am supposed to be doing. Okay, okay here I go.
No wait. I’m still not ready. If you don’t know, I’ve lost my last two trials outright and they both got county jail time. The trial before those two I got a partial victory (jury came back with a lesser included misdemeanor rather than a felony), but my guy got county jail time also. I hate losing. Maybe I should just retire.
After a successful summer harvest of apples, loquats, mulberries and figs, this fall has brought in a successful crop of citrus: oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and kumquats. Most (but not all) of the citrus trees we planted some years ago finally bore fruit. Why, we even got some persimmons. Now that all the trees have been in the ground for a few years, we expect dividends to come from the pear, plum, peach, cherry, and nectarine trees. We have written off the pomegranate trees. Those suckers will never produce. We inadvertently fried our guava tree which was unfortunate as it was loaded with guavas. We are planting mango, mulberry and avocado trees in a location where they will not be fried. Also, our coffee trees are still small enough to remain in their pots. The banana tree DID produce a load of bananas, but we gave them too much time to ripen and by the time I got to them they were already rotten. Next year we will take them earlier. Blueberry and blackberry bushes are all looking good. We should have an even stronger harvest of berries this summer.
I’ve stall enough. I’ve got to go.
P.S. America, if you do want to send money, let me know and I can provide you an address. And I do accept credit cards.
