360th post

Note: Here is what I do each day after completing my story of my life for the day;

I first upload the story to owned by Google. It is the best site for me

to make spelling corrections and other editor functions.

Next I post to, my original and paid for site. I have promised to 

upload my story by 6:00 PM each night, but I have, because of my 

responsibilities to the house I have been late 2 times in the last three days. 

I then post the story to Wordpress. 

The stories are immediately shared with Facebook (at least twice and I have to 

delete and leave just 1 one on the site), Google +, Tumbler, Twitter and maybe 

others I don't know about. 

You get to my stories by going to,, Wordpress, 

Facebook, Google + (Google says that the story is shared, but I have never 

checked and the same goes for Tumbler and Twitter). You can also Google -

Forrest Caricofe or type in a online search, like Google, and type in my URL: that I started about 8 months ago in Las Vegas,

Nevada where I ate and lived in Mother's Honda Accord in one of Walmart's

parking lots. I stayed in that same lot from mid January of 2016 to the last of May

of the same year.

*Before I say anything else I need to address a relation of mine, a young woman,

who lives in Maine near the Arctic Circle. She said in her most recent message to 

me on her Facebook page that she and her family would meet me in St. Louie, no, 

that's wrong, near the Grand Canyon. She has failed to read my stories of my life 

everyday. If she did, she would know that I incarcerated here for now because, 

simply, I'm the oldest, 74, the most healthiest and the only one that can drive in 

the house, so, I'm pretty much in charge of taking care of everyone else.

I hope that explains it, Danielle?

There is an old saying that I remember from long ago that says " a story a day 

keeps the doctor away." Well, that's what I do. I type one story every day, so

I should be pretty healthy.

Today, in this section, I will tell several very short stories of some people who 

I have had a chance encounter with. Most of my very short encounters would be 

way more than short to most people. I ain't no small talker. Most are less than 1 

minute. It's the other person (s) that may drag the conservation on, not me. And I 

always have a reason for leaving, lie or not. A quote of mine that I've used 

throughout my years of life on earth is "that you can," most of the time, "say 

what's important in 10 words or less."

I happen to see in the grocery store that I won't mention because of the ratfink who

works there, a woman and her daughter, age 10 more or less. There is always to

initiate a conversation with someone, so ask the daughter "why aren't you in 

school?" The mother responded and said "she is home schooled like my older son 

who is a lawyer in Washington, D.C." I asked her if he "worked for Obama" and 

with gentle smile she said "no." There is a question I almost always asked parents 

with children who understand what I'm saying. I'm thinking of Mother when I say to 

them "your Mother is taking care of you now, right?" There reply has always been

"yes." And I say "when your Mother gets older and needs help, will you help?"

And the answer has always been "yes." I don't know what I'd do if both answers

were "no," but I'll figure it out. We both left with neither of us needing an excuse for


The second and last short story and shorter than the latter occurred when I went to 

Walmart last Sunday. As I just came in to the and saw this man coming my way who

was not dressed like normal. He had a gold medallion hanging around his neck 

to his mid-chest and had a sweater-like garment of many bright colors possible 

made by the Navajos. He had a black and grey ponytail a little bit more grey than

mine. Here I go again, try it. Human beings like to be recognized because it 

elevates their since of worth. I do not miss many opportunities. I said "sir, I like 

the way you dress." He was kind of shocked at first. Maybe no one says Hi to him

often. He finally said "thank you" with very small hint of a smile and we both left 

this encounter thinking a lot better about ourselves. 

From a distance before I came so close to him, I thought he might be my twin. They

say everyone has one. But there is a big difference between us, I saw a Colt 45

in a holster on his right hip as I left him and all I have is a canister of pepper spray

in Mother's Honda.

days remaining until the end of the year (326 in leap years). This date is slightly 

more likely to fall on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday (58 in 400 years each) 

than on Sunday or Monday (57), and slightly less likely to occur on a Wednesday 

or Friday (56).

*Man kills wife inside their home. This was one of the story lines on Cleveland 

TV news last night and after I had posted my story of the day on, and Wordpress at about 6:10 PM last night. It's already too late for 

him. The wife is dead and he will suffer the death of a prison cell for the 

remainder of his days here on earth. Do you know what I would do? It's pretty 

simple really and I believe that this is what most people would do. Just walk out 

the door and stay gone forever. It's pretty simple really.

taking long walk along the seashore and taking a lot of pics of the scenaries all 

around me. I also love movies and tv series.

*I saw and heard a story on television news last night after I had posted my story 

for yesterday. There is a town in a state that I don't remember were one person 

placed what was called a Blessing Box out near the street of their house. They 

placed in the Blessing Box food items for people who needed it. In that town they

are "playing it forward" and now they have more than a dozen Blessing Boxes for 

people who are poor. And tears are running down from my eyes to my cheeks.

A human act of kindness gets me everytime.

*Another in the long list of sayings I remember from long, long ago , "I'm dryer 

than a pepperjack fart." I had not pooped for several days until this morning.

I'll give you the time again so that you can write it down in your journal.

5:50 AM 2/9/2017 EST. 

And I know what's wrong. After all my years of living, I've failed to obey the 

rules of pooping;

1.   Drink more than enough water. If you feel dry and need to drink water, 

you are already dehydrated.

2.   Drink more water than coffee. I have both coffee and a big bottle of lemon 

water at my left hand side and on a small table halfway to the floor. I always 

seem to grab the coffee mug and forget about the water. Shame on you, Forrest.

3.   Eat fiber rich foods. Recommendations are" 30 to 38 grams a day for men 

and 25 grams a day for women between 18 and 50 years old, and 21 grams a 

day if a woman is 51 and older. Another general guideline is to get 14 grams of 

fiber for every 1,000 calories in your diet."

What the hell is going on? The latter statement don't include me. I'm 51 and older

and I'm a male human being?

Well, no matter. I get most of my fiber when eating the food in my mini-

refridgerator that are mostly fruits and vegetables and to eat it all, it will require 

another installation of my false teeth.

4.   Scientific studies recommend caressing near your belly button to help your

poop along. I might have tried it once or twice, but I don't remember that it 


*I don't believe I have any chauffeuring duties today except go to the post office

to take several items that need weighing. Twenty minutes max.  I finally going 

to get a break. Praise the Lord and Hallelujah! 

*Looks like all I do is type about my health but that's what most senior citizens do.

I'm going to fix my favorite first sandwich of the morning and like I said yesterday

that you should  know what it is because I've told you 50 times or more, so if you

don't remember ask someone else because I'm getting tired of repeating myself.

I'm going to top off them little slimy beauties with a slice of roma tomato or two.

*7:36 AM 2/9/2017 EST. Well, I'm back again. I seems like when I go to a different

section of this story of today, I'm drawn back like a magnet to to my mini-

refrigerator because I have something else to tell. Now I forgot what it is. Never 

mind, I'll remember it eventually.

All, now I remember "a shave and haircut 2 bites," Another old saying from a long,

long time ago that helps me to remember. I need to shave and not cut my hair, but

shower, "2 bites."

*5:39 PM 2/9/2017 EST. I didn't go to the post office after all. I stayed in the house 

all day, but I didn't like it. I ain't use to being around 3 other people for a long 

period of time.

*"Why are (Cleveland) Browns fans so great? Their teams have never won—

ever—and they continually support their franchise. They were ranked first out 

of all 32 NFL teams in “fan loyalty.” They routinely fill their 73,000-seat stadium 

despite cold temperatures and a dismal recent history, which includes zero 

postseason wins since the 1994 season.

They have the number one fan group in all of professional sports, the “Browns 

Backers”, which can be found in literally every city in the United States, and even 

in different countries.

Their fans can be visibly present at home games in the famous “Dawg Pound”, 

which is located in the east end of the stadium. Fans wear dog paraphernalia to 

all of the games.

The Browns may have lost their team for four seasons, but they never lost their 

incredible passion."

Well, things have changed in the city of the "burning river" since 2009.

The Cleveland Brown's 1- 15 record this last season (2016) season was one 

reason for reducing ticket prices. Season ticket holder prices will remain the 

same. It's a shame, ain't it?

*7:28 AM 2/9/2017 EST. Went outdoors to get the weather gauge and found 2 

packages that were probably delivered last evening. It's snowing with maybe 3

inches on the ground and driveway, the temperature is 21° and the humidity is

moving upward form the present 80% because of the moisture in the snow. The

wind is blowing the snow in from the north as I looked at the American flag on

the northeast border corner pole.

*9:42 AM 2/9/2017 EST. I now indoors after going outdoors in shorts, no socks, but

shoes, to take 3 or 4 outgoing letters to the mailbox. The temperature is 23°, up 2°

since earlier in the morning. The wind is much the same in speed and direction

as earlier this morning and maybe another 1/2 inch of snow added to the 3 inches

of this morning. The snow has stopped leaving snow upon the road and will clear 

only when the salt trucks of Green Township have made a pass or two.

*10:03 AM 2/9/2017 EST. The indoor temperature is 70° and the humidity is 43%.

*Snowstorm Forces School Closures Across NY. It takes a lot of snow to cancel 

schools in Yankee land, but in the south they cancel schools if there is a 10% of 

chance of snow. Let's make that 5%.
