of SW Florida
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.
I am finally ready for the right partner. I have eliminated any “Luggage”, have no debts, and my mind is clear. I have plans I could include the right person in or I could just change my plans to meet hers. Just looking for that chemistry.
Now I am in search of a mystery and I may never find it. Got one in mind?
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 next step is to downsize the trailer to a more manageable one, just big enough for my motorcycle and minimal tools.
Then I want to downsize my boat to a more realistic size. Sure, mine is nice, but I could still squeeze out some space and have the same comforts. Maybe even more efficient and economical to travel with and even get it off the grid. 🙂
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 255 and ready to get serious. Have tried many things the last few years, but I guess I will have to move my ass. 🙂 I have a trainer and he is helping a lot. He says build muscle and muscle burns calories. So I can feel geting stronger, but the weight even went up a little. think I need a better cook. 🙂
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 Honest and have a Good Positive Attitude. Maybe even cook healthier.
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). They have produced a bunch of grandchildren (whom are learning what life is about) and oh yea, a few “Great” Grand Babies (what a surprise, I thought you had to be old to have them). Miscellaneous others I have adopted over the years. 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. I go about 4 times a year, but plan to go more now.
My Friends – Sometime 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 that 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 Government already has to much control. 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 whipper snappers. Especially in tomorrow’s technology. WOW is all I have to say about that.
