361st post

Note: I believe I have Google Adsence ads on and 

in order to make a small pittance, but I don't know for sure because I haven't 

checked them. No matter for now. I do not have Google Adsense ads on 

Wordpress, so I will not post to Wordpress until I figure out how to do it. 

Thanks. Forrest.

lots of little things that matter."


I remember people in the past who hummed, sang to themselves, yodeled

whisteled and/or did all these things so silenty you could not hear them.  It is 

a rarity theses days to hear these signs of happiness, the mournful sound of 

a yodeler or those who hummed/sang/whistled the sad songs of Hank 


I've spent some time in the last couple of years in the states of Ohio (were I'm

presently at), Virginia, Nebraska and Nevada. The best place for me is the last

place I've been, but now, because of responsibilities in the house, I'm confined 

to this place. Las Vegas or near the Grand Canyon has warm weather in the 

summer and I like the dry warm weather of the winter months and dry high heat 

of the summer months. Both locations will also provide for my demise by walking 

off into wilderness and into the beautiful desert sun.

Looks like I'm rambling rose again and off track. As I told in one of my stories of 

my life from some time ago, my Father use to hum "me oh my oh, a small part of 

the lyrics that say "Goodbye Joe me gotta go me oh my oh, me ... Son of a gun we'll 

have big fun on the "Jambalaya (On The Bayou)" was a song written 

in 1952 and sang by country legend Hank Williams. I was around 10 years old at 

the time and could also remember my Father yodeling or trying to, I don't 

remember exactly. My memory seems to leave me at times like a sagebrush 

rolling away in the desert.

My Mother was a prayerful women, she just prayed and did not fight or argue, 

much. She had been a avid church-goer all her life starting at the Summit Church 

of Brethren in Augusta County were Father and Mother were buried just a few 

short miles from her home place on a hill near Burketown in the same county. 

Her and her siblings, Uncle Orvin, Mother was next, Aunt Ruth and the baby,

Uncle Lester use to walk the 4 miles more or less to the church. Mother told me

on several occasions that they needed to go around the property of a mean 

man who lived in the woods.

She ended up attending the Dayton Church of the Brethen that my Father partially 

built and my Father went along her whether he always liked it or not. I don't 

know for sure. Both of my parents funerals were held in this same church, then 

the funeral procession to the Summit Church of the Brethren cementary for 

services and burial. At the last moment, Mother's desires became known and 

we buried her and then went to church in Dayton for her services. I ask the 

woman preacher if I could say a few words at Mother's services and, I'm crying 

again now, I said "thank you Mother for leaving your footprints on earth for us to 


I really got way, way off track. Sorry.


*Without repeating the last 7 numbers, I received a cellular phone call from 757

area code in Virginia centered in the area of Virginia Beach, the largest city in

Virginia and not Richmond, the capitol city. I told you before that I do not answer

cellular phone calls that are out of this area and only answer 1 cellular phone call

from someone who has a Virginia area code, 540, and lives in Florida. I'm getting

tired of typing, you guess.

Black History Month - February 1 through February 28....


Emancipation document part of Black History Month

By Rick Karlin, Capitol bureau on February 2, 2017 at 1:31 PM

has ended, but I believe the time is right to type about President Abraham 

Lincoln who was elected in 1860, the 16th president of the United States. 

Abraham Lincoln, was the first Republican president to win the office. The first 

Republican candidate to run for president was John C. Fremont in 1856. He 

advocated like much of north to release the slaves from their bondage. Lincoln

dealt with that and the American Civil War beginning on April 12, 1861 and 

ending on May 9, 1865. Approximately 620,000 soldiers died from combat, 

accident, starvation, and disease or from Wikipedia:

750,000 total deaths to include children, women and non-combat men.

Combat and accident, starvation, and disease. 

Union:                           281,881  

Confederate:                225,000

Total combat deaths:   506,881

approximately 114,000 difference in the figure from the estimation above 

Wikipedia. Most of the soldiers died because they stood-up fighting. Sad. 

I was in the army and I know the basics of how to fight and it ain't standing up.




Maybe people ain't got nothing to do but celebrate all day and all night. Why don't

you go ahead and make up a day for celebrating, everyone else seems to be doing

*You didn't think I'd talk about my health today, did you? Well, think again.

7:04 AM 2/10/2017 EST. I'm making my 1st sandwich of the day and like I told 

you yesterday, I ain't going to tell you what it is because I've said it so many 

times before, but if you really want to know got back to my story #355 and 

then read back another ten to #345 and you'll know 10 times. There is a hint in

in my quote of up above so maybe you won't have to go back to story #355.

*10:44 AM 2/10/2017 EST. I going to Orrville this morning, alone I hope, to buy

some things for the house and the post office to mail 2 packages that I intended

to mail yesterday. But I'm waiting to poop and then I'll go.

I forgot to tell you that I just took my morning drugs and dropped a drop of Timid

All in each eye. I usually take my drugs near 8:00 AM and sometimes miss taking 

them entirely. Well, what's a body to do. Hell if I know.

*11:14 AM 2/10/2017 EST. I just pooped. I'm leaving.

*12:45 PM 2/10/2017 EST. I'm back. About an hour and 1/2. Not bad, but I couldn't

drive over the speed limit today because of snow drifts on roads going north or 

south. I should have never left the house, of course, because when I accmulate a 

lot more stories to tell. I first when to General Dollar where I bought everything I 

needed for myself and the house. I first ran into two Pepsi deliverymen and I 

usually ask the same question of them and Coke deliverymen. I  said to one of them 

first "this is a secret, I drink Coke, don't tell anybody" just on my part. The question

I always ask is "what is the best seller in this area, Pepsi or Coke." He said "Pepsi"

and I said "yuck." Besides being the "black sheep" of the family and as far as I know

my one sister and two brothers drink Pepsi and I drink Coke, I use my left arm and 

hand to wipe my butt, I'm right-handed, which gives me some evidence that I was 

secretly adopted, but I ain't proved it yet.

I continued through the aisles at a fast pace saying "pardon me" or excuse me" 

and "thank you" when picking up what I needed to get by someone or ask a 

question of an employee of the store. Fast to the checkout were a woman was 

whining to the cashier whose name was name was a (that's the last letter, you can 

guess the rest). We, the woman in front of me and me, could see that the whiner 

was causing the the cashier whose name is "a" (last letter) to have more and more

a bad day. I said to the woman in front, maybe the woman behind me in line, and 

the cashier whose name is "a" (last letter) "let's elevate her (cashier) self-esteem."

And we all did, so that when we left "a" (last letter only) was as happy as she could 


Second stop. I forgot were I stopped next. I have two choices so I'll pick one. No, I 

know, I stopped for gas. I don't know if I told you or not but some thief use my PNC

(Pittsburgh National Corporation) credit card to buy a airplane ticket on Turkish

Airlines. I don't know any Arabic languages nor do I want to be close to Syria were

ISIS (Islam State of Iraq and Syria) and the evil dictator, Bashar al-Assad, of Syria 

are beheading or barbarically murdering children, women and men who oppose 

them. If I had a chance and and a nuclear bomb, I round all them up and kill all of

them &^%$#@#&%$#'s. If I can get aggravated enough, I probably can become 

barbaric, too.

I received two new PNC (Pittsburgh National Corporation) credit cards in the mail 

yesterday that the bank said would take 7-10 days. 

Off track again. Pulled into the gas station. Had to pee, too, before I wet my shorts, 

but I pumped gas into Mother's Honda first. $2.29 a gallon. Last time it was $1.99 a

gallon. Sometimes they change the prices every few hours. I don't care, I just want

the gas. The Honda took close to 10 gallons and 200 hundred on the milage counter

meant 20 mpg (miles per gallon). I usually get about 27 mpg (miles per gallon), but

because of the cold weather when Bill is in the car, I have to idle it too much. And I

used my beautiful and new credit for the first time.Oh, what a thrill. I then went into

the store part of the station with my (1) My Pilot Mug were I took a piss first and the 

went to the coffee bar were I poured a 1/2 mug full of French Vanilla and filled the

remainder with their Special Blend. I paid for the coffee, only 99 cents with a mug, 

then left for the good old U.S. (United States) Post Office.  

(1) "Pilot Flying J, the largest operator of travel centers and travel plazas in North 

America, ... Download our new MyPilot app and start saving 3¢ per gallon on 

gasoline and ... interstates and you'll eventually end up at a truck stop or a 

travel center and headquartered in Marengo, OH 43334."

I worked in the Orrville Post Office for about 18 years as a letter carrier before 

my heart decided to stop without warning in the early winter of 1998. Since then, 

after recovering, I've traveled a lot by airplane, Amtrac, Mother's Honda, walking, 

Greyhound, boxcar and jackass. No, the travel by boxcar came before this and I 

might have just imagined traveling by jackass. It's like they say "the truth shall set 

you in motion." I've always liked that quotation.

I have boundless energy but I'm tired of typing. My choice, not yours.



*5:19 AM 2/10/2017 EST.  From my computer screen and the Washington Post.

Trump to follow one-China policy. I'm more than a little aggravated by what 

President Trump has done. One of his first phone calls to a country's leader was

to Taiwan which caused all kinds of negative responses from mainland China.

China does not consider Taiwan to be a country, but one of china's possessions.

I have always liked the Taiwanese people because they are much like us (U.S.)

except for their language. The president has decided not to change and move

America onto a better path to "Make America Great Again," but simply go back

to the old way of doing things. I don't ever get mad but I'm getting close!

And to beat it all, I just received an email message from that 

said my picture postcard that I sent to someone in Taiwan has been delivered. 

The sender in a short and kind message said  “Hi Forrest, thank you so much for 

the postcard&coins !

Best Wishes, 😉 


*President Trump's executive order banning refugees has been defeated. After

three weeks in the White House this is his biggest lost to date. He has said that he

would be President Reagan-like and believe in individual and states rights 

before government rights. The 3 judge panel came to the same conclusion as the

late President Reagan. The only thing that I can think of that Reagan  failed at was

"The Paperwork Reduction Act." I liked President Reagan. Maybe it was because 

he was an actor President.  

As to the (1) "The Paperwork Reduction Act" I went online to my PNC (Pittsburgh 

National Corporation) Bank and clicked on a statement that said to stop all 

all documents sent to me in the mail. I do all my banking online and I ain't no tree-

hugger, but maybe I can save one tree from getting cut down in the forest.

*7:48 AM 2/10/2017 EST. Forgot to take the temperature gauge outdoors 

yesterday. the indoor temperature is 71° and the humidity is 42%. I'll take out

the gauge this very minute.

*8:14 AM 2/10/2017 EST. I have just returned from outdoors. I took all of the trash

from the house and placed the black bag on the enclosed back deck floor of the 

house. I'll take the bag of trash to the container beside the east side of the garage

later on when I go to the post office. The sun in all it's glory is shinning in the east

and slightly south and my eyes cannot look at it long because of all its' brillance.

The American flag in the northeast border corner pole is drooping, moving

slightly toward the north indicating a slow wind speed of about 3 mph. The 

temperature only gauge is covered with snow and indicates a reading of 18°

and because of the snow, I believe the present temperature is 10° or more higher

than that. I'll check on the weather gauge that I just took outdoors in a while.

enough to be wrong, ain't I? I went outdoors, the temperate only gauge read 20°

the temperature and humidity gauge read 20° and 61% respectively so
