20 October 2017. Monday was My Nicky’s Birthday

________________________

On Monday, my Nicky was 67-years-old. I love him without reservation. I’ll never forget how he saved me from a bad situation, at a cost to himself. I’ll allow no one to attack my man… full stop. I’m here for him, for as long as he needs me. On Tuesday, we had a lovely birthday dinner at Bucca di Beppo… I knew that’s what would make him happiest. His happiness made my day… it wasn’t cheap, but it was worth every penny, and I’m glad that it made him smile so much. It was his day, after all.

I hope that you have love in your life, too…

20 October 2017. My Friends ARE My Friends… Full Stop and Without Reservation

________________________

These days, you hear much blather about how people will “unfriend” others if they don’t conform to Politically Correct shibboleths (both “liberal” and “conservative”). I refuse to do such evil. I chose my friends because I found them trusty and true… if they disagree with me on this or on that, so be it. Character, not agreement, is the basis of friendship; at least, we Russians think so. If you wish to “unfriend” people because of their political opinions… so be it. I can’t dictate to you. I prefer to honour and respect my friends, even if we’ve had little contact recently. I found them worthy and no political opinion is going to change that. I confide that I’m not the only person with that attitude…

1 October 2017. I Was in a REAL Blue Funk… Now, It’s Over!

I’ve been in a blue funk lately… dealing with craziness in the Real World. Firstly, my Nicky had a severe diabetic episode. Our phone was on the fritz, so I had to run to the police station (luckily, across the street) at 0230 to get the paramedics to come and attend to him. Nicky was in hospital for a day, but he’s on the mend now. Secondly, I had to deal with a minor legal matter. I had a very slight fender-bender (no damage to our car… the other had its bumper out of alignment for less than an inch) while parking. Well… the cop ran our licences… he found out that Nicky had a suspended licence (he didn’t know it), so since I had a learner’s permit, the cop cited me for Unlicenced Operation. Nicky got things squared away with DMV (they needed a doctor’s OK, which hadn’t reached them). I went to court Friday on that… it took all of 30 seconds. I said three things to the judge… “Yes, sir”… “Yes, sir”… “Thank you”. I got an acquittal, with nothing on my record if I don’t screw up again in the next six months. I spent 90 minutes waiting… 30 seconds to dispose of it. That’s OVER… whew!

I can see where my “block” came from… I had real-deal situations to handle, and they did take priority over the cyberworld. It feels good. God willing, I’ll keep my second wind…

26 August 2017. I’ve Been in a Rough Patch… A Dark Night of the Intellect

I’ve been in a Dark Night of the Intellect recently. I found myself with hardly anything useful to say… so, I simply stopped posting for a while. I did repost articles on my FB page, but I didn’t have anything of value to say, so, I wasn’t posting here. I’m back. I find myself re-energised. I’ll still post spottily over the weekdays, but I’m back full-force on the weekends. Remember… love rules this house… a love of the truth, love of life, love of God, and love for my friends. You can always tell the haters, can’t you? They’re against this and that… well, I’m FOR this and that, and anyone can see the obvious difference.

Take my hand… the road goes ever onward, but there’s still a rough patch or two ahead…
