My Goals this year
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 or at least a canal. Yes a big boat with an extra state room for my friends to visit, or at least a small house with an extra room for friends on a canal. Yep, I still have a few friends.
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. Had one recently, but she got away also. Must be my deodorant. :-)
My Present - I am trying to sell everything and simplify my life. I have toys and properties and want to sell them all, well everything that won't fit in a boat anyway. I am flexible if I find a cute chick with a big boat, RV or just a ticket to someplace, I could be convinced to go. :-)
My Family - I have my Sister (whom I would give my world to), three great kids (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 couple 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 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.
