Somewhere in between

Me – Just a simple man with a simple plan… Now to find the mate in life to plunge through life’s next venture, which could be traveling in an RV around the States, traveling third world countries, back to Florida traveling the inter-coastal’ s, eBike riding,  or just working around the house and having friends over to play cards. Of course another option is all the above and more.  I do miss living on the water and my friends in Sunny South West Florida

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, a little saved 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 My little house, a Boat or RV.  I have downsize even more, just big enough for my eBikes and minimal tools.

My Goals this year 2024 – seems like they are similar to last year. Funny how that happens… 🙂
1- Again – Loose this extra weight, no number just more comfortable. Currently, after numerous non working diets, plan to eat smarter, eat less and move more. Simple huh? 🙂
2- Sold or gave away my properties. When in Florida, I am now a tourist and either rent a room or bum in with friends.
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  (whom I am very proud and they already have the world), and one now deceased whom we all miss beyond description. 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.

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 feel blessed and like family, I would go the distance to help these people.

My Future – My plans are to travel… any way, any where…
I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to many countries already and some such as South Africa more than once, thanks to a wonderful family I have been adopted into.
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.  I am not afraid to admit I am a conservative and believe we need to protect our borders, support our defenders and caretakers, educate our young and stop giving our hard earned money away. In 2000 the Unemployment and Gas was down and stock was up. guess we will see what this administration does but so far I am not impressed. I do believe we need to ween ourselves from fossil fuels and convert to solar, wind and water energy’s but it won’t happen overnight. I also believe to many Politian’s are getting rich on our system and that needs to change.

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, in the air or far away from civilization. I believe they should still have Home Economics and Industrial Arts in school. 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 …  that is all I have to say about that.
