Wayne's World
of SW Florida

My Goals this year 2018 - seems like they are similar to last year. Funny how that happens... :-)
1- Again - Loose this extra weight down to 200#, Now at 245 and ready to get serious. Have tried many things the last few years, but I guess I will have to move my ass. :-)
2- Sold or gave away my properties. Bought a live aboard boat actually they call it a Trawler Yacht and starting to  work on it to get it off the grid, for the most part. Got to have fuel to push this one around. :-)
3 - Find that special someone to spend the rest of my life with. She should be Slim, Honest and have a Good Positive Attitude.

Me - Just a simple man with a simple plan... go back to the water from which I came. Well, kind of close. I was in a canal home in Cape Coral FL and before that on the Kentucky River. Now I want to just simplify my life and live on a boat. Yes a good size boat with an extra state room for my friends to visit. Yep, I still have a few friends. Of course I have to have a Dingy to play in.

My Mate - Mate??? what is that.  Had a few good ones and let them get away. Now I am in search of a mystery and I may never find it. Got one in mind, just have to see if we are a match.

My Present - I sold most of my toys and properties and want to sell anything that won't fit into a Boat or my trailer I set up as a work shop. You just can't get rid of all your tools.

My Family - I have my Sister (whom I would give my world to), two great kids and one now deceased (whom I am very proud and they already have the world), and a bunch of grandchildren (whom are learning what life is about) and oh yea, a few of "Great" Grand Babies (what a surprise, I thought you had to be old to have them) and miscellaneous others . Yep, love them all. I say their biggest fear in life is if I have to come back and live with them. :-) Of course we keep in touch and it is great when they come down or I go up to Kentucky.

My Friends - Some times I run across some special people in my life and just kind of get adopted or adopt someone. These people I call true friends.  They share in an unusual belonging and regardless of how often you see them, just knowing they are there is a great feeling.  I am blessed with both sides. Like family, I would go the distance to help these people.

My Future - My plans are to travel... any way, any where... I am just curious how the rest of the world actually survives. I like to see how different countries look and the different ways people exist. Americans are raised to believe we have the very best of everything, but I know that is not true from the little bit of travel I have done.  But we do have it very well, better than most.

The After Life - I am sure there is one and I hope it is good for us all.  I have tried to treat others as I would have them treat me, live a good life and tried to fulfill my obligations so if I were to go today, I would have no regrets. Of course like someone said, I am ready to go, just not today.

My Belief - I believe we are loosing our freedoms daily and it has become a way of life.  I believe the closest to freedom we have is on the water or in the air. I believe every child should serve time in either college or military or both, they don't get this kind of training at home. I believe a day without a hug is a wasted day. I believe if we are forced to give up our guns we will have lost all our freedoms. I believe if you are still reading this you are a part of my life, whether you know it or not. :-)

Summary - I don't plan to live forever... just about another 50 or 60 years and I will turn in this ole depleted body so I can start over in a new one. Hopefully I will do it right the next time. This time I was a lifetime student in the school of hard knocks. Next time I hope to try the early education method... I strongly suggest it to you younger whopper snappers. Especially in tomorrow's technology. WOW is all I have to say about that.

Guidelines I try to live by


1.       Drink plenty of water.
2.       Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
3.       Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in factories. Organic is the best.
4.       Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
5.       Make time to pray. Pray that the Media is not always right. Learn to decide for yourself what you think is right and back it.
6.       Play more physical games
7.       Read more books than you did in 2017
8.       Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
9.       Sleep for 7 hours. Not always at night
10.    Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

11.    Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
12.    Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
13.    Don't over do. Keep your limits.
14.    Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
15.    Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
16.    Dream more while you are awake
17.    Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
18.    Forget issues of the past.. Don't remind your partner with His/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
19.    Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
20.    Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
21.    No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
22.    Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.  Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
23.    Smile and laugh more.
24.    You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree...
25.    You donít have to attend every argument that you are invited to...

25.    Call your family often.
26.    Each day give something good to others.
27.    Forgive everyone for everything.
28.    Spend time w/ people over the age of 70 & under the age of 9.
29.    Try to make at least three people smile each day.
30.    What other people think of you is none of your business.
31.    Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

32.    Do the right thing!
33.    Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
34.    GOD heals everything.
35.    However good or bad a situation is, it will change..
36.    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
