JOBS I HAVE HAD DURING MY LIFETIME....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

Job # 47 - I'm about 50 years old (1992). 2077th USAR School demobilized.

Monitor NCOES courses taught at Camp Perry, Ohio.                 $500.00 a month ?

Job # 48 - At the same time as above, I'm, along with other mostly officers,

and a Command Sergeant Major are planning the upcoming annual 2 week

summer training to teach psychological operations. This unit is located 

in Parma, Ohio.                                                                   $500.00 a month ?

February, 1998. My heart stopped, but revived. Retired for a while.

Job #  49 - 2015-2016. Worked in the produce section of Walmart, Omaha, 

Nebraska. Quit after 2 and 1/2 months to go to Las Vegas, Nevada.   $9.90 per hour

Job #  50 -  2016. Worked as a beer vendor at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was NASCAR. 2016              $80.00 including tips  ?

I also worked for this same vending company selling beer at a George Strait 

concert at the T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas strip. The owner, who

lives in South Carolina and is a Yankee-carpet bagger from Maryland, 

said that my personality did not fit the personality of the T-Mobil Arena.

I probably could have changed to one of my other personalities to fit

the T-Mobil Arena, but I wasn't making that much money or having that much 

fun, so I quit. 

So, I've had at least 50 different jobs and I've probably missed a few and I'll 

tell you about them later when I remember them. And tomorrow I'll type 

about something else for a while.

WORLD

I went to the postcrossing.com web site this morning and obtained 6 new

addresses from all over the world to send postcards to. 


*(8:50 AM 12/23/2016 EDT) From the Washington Post at the lower right corner 

of my computer screen.

A Liberian airliner with 118 passengers and crew aboard was earlier hijacked, 

but they have now been released after a confrontation from troops.

HEALTH

You know I always have something to say about health. That's mostly what us 

old people talk about. And the weather, of course.

I'm still a little bit sore from taking that stress test. The cracks in my heels are

getting better because I'm applying the ointment regulary and not going 

barefooted. I've not eaten any unnatural sugar for a day and a 1/2.

I don't believe I've told you this, but maybe I have. The doctor who was going

to operate on my carpel tunnel problem said to wait until after my stress test.

The doctor probably wanted to know if I had a bad heart. No, I don't, it just 

stopped once and it was not a heart attack. I hope the doctor doesn't find out

that I've had the stress test because, I believe I'll have to go through the testing

for carpal tunnel again which involves the technician  sticking needles into 

your hands and then the doctor sticking needles in your forarm and up to the

shoulder. And another thing. If the doctor does operate to repair my carpel 

tunnel, I will have to wear a sling for 2 weeks. The doctor said I could type,

but practically nothing else. I don't like doing "nothing else."

MY OPINION

I told you yesterday that I've been alone almost all my life except when I took

care of Mother. Me being over friendly means that I greet and talk to a lot of

people, but they're only chance encounters with and not ones of friendship.

Please don't feel sorry for me. I've always liked being alone and even today

with 3 other people in the house, I'm only in conversation with them an 

average of 1 hour or less a day. I guess what I'm getting at is that most of the 

talking I've done during my life has been only to myself.

And being attached to someone means that you are not as free as me.

POLITICS

*Trump said yesterday that he wanted to strengthen and expand America's

nuclear capabilities. Critics are concerned about the word "expand."

*The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Rocket's will perform at the President-

elect's inauguration and sometime ago I heard that Garth Brooks was 

campaigning to perform.

I just learned that Garth Brooks has said no thank you to performing at Trump's

inauguration.

WEATHER

Weather for Smithville, Ohio

Today      CLOUDY                                  37° 34°

Sat           SCATTERED_SHOWERS     39° 30°

Sun          CLOUDY                                  40° 36°

Mon         RAIN                                         58° 31°

The Weather Channel - Weather Underground - AccuWeather

We have a house security system that also gives the forcasted high and low 

temperatures for today (6:32 AM 12/23/2016 EDT - Friday). I just checked it

and the high and low predictions are 41° and 37° with the possibility of rain 

and/or snow. From above you can see that there is a difference in the forcast

for today and the weather forecast comes from 3 sources. So, whom must I 

believe? Well, I'm going to go with the forcasted weather at the top. Now I don't

have to worry about rain or snow.

(7:01 AM 12/23/2016 EDT). I've made for myself a sandwich of Great Value 

(Walmart brand) premium wildcaught chunk light tuna in water. It's really

very good, but I'll get more mercury from this larger fish, so I can't eat too

much of this tuna.

Outside to the garage (8:43 AM 12/23/2016 EDT) to get the rest of my cage-free

chicken eggs. I sucked the innards out of one and put the rest in my mini-

refridgerator. I checked the weather guage and the temperature is 31°, the

humidity is 75% and the wind is coming in from the south at about 5 mph that I

can tell from looking at the American flag on the corner.  Using the online 

calculators at http://www.dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.com., 

I get a wind chill of 25.9° and a dew point of 24%. No rain or snow yet.
