YESTERDAY AND TODAY

**YESTERDAY. After publishing my daily blog and several videos, I went outdoors and 

sprayed weed killer on the wire weeds and other weeds in the yard plus some that have 

remained in our U-shaped driveway. I also burned the dry weeds in the fire pit, the 

resulting soil I can use to fill in low places in the lawn. I need to spray weed killer on the 

weeds in the up front middle of the lawn, the up front eastern side and along the borders 

of our property which are all mostly wire weeds. I quit about 4:00 PM, went indoors to 

shower, dress and then drove to Wooster to Drug Mart and KFC. At Drug Mart, I purchased

some things for the house and then went to KFC to buy a container of fried chicken, 2 

pieces extra crispy, the rest original and only 1 breast. I chose sides of green beans, mash

potatoes and gravy and cole slaw and 6 warm buscuits that came with the meal. 

Back at the house I unloaded the items I bought, ate 2 thighs along with some of the sides

I bought while watching 'Law and Order' on TV, saying my prayer and to sleep about 9:00 

PM. This has been the 1st time in a while that I haven't eaten my nightly salad.

**TODAY. After publishing my daily blog I'm working on I need to take the trash containers 

to the front to be picked up by Waste Management, phone Wells Fargo concerning 

refinancing our house, receive a phone call from someone who also wants us to refinance,

publish about 2 videos and sharing of driving our dog, Dolly Jo, to her hair salon, drive to 

Rite Aid to pick up a prescription medication and to check on refills of a prescription 

shampoo that I need. 

8:26 AM 8/28/2017 EDT. I just talked to someone at Wells Fargo, the bank that's financing 

our home now. He said that we could refinance our house saving almost $300 on our 

monthly payment. I need some more information and then I'll call him back. I'll keep you 

updated. 

The weather forecast calls for high and low temperatures of 76° and 57° with scattered

thunderstorms and rain for the next 2 days. 

If I have a chance, the rain might prevent me, to go out to the yard and flower beds, I'll 

spread some Weed and Feed on to the southeast corner of the yard which does not 

contain wire weeds. It measures about 200 feet long and 100 feet wide. 

I'll just have to wait and see what the rest of the day brings.


I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**What if I had only 6 months to live.

6 Ways to Live as If You Have 6 Months Left to Live.

by Jennifer Pastiloff - August 16, 2012 2:38 PM.

"If we had only six months left:

We wouldn't give a flying hoot what anyone thought anymore.

We would be totally self-expressed.

We would do what felt good and right in our bodies. We would sleep an extra hour and 

play hookie from work. We would be present.

Curse more. (If you feel like it.)

Don't take sh*t anymore!"

https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-5820/6-Ways-to-Live-as-If-You-Have-6-Months-

Left-to-Live.html

My thoughts on the above if I didn't have 6 months to live:

I don't care what people think of me now. Well, maybe just a little.

I'm totally self-expressed now. I'm very friendly and honest with everyone I meet.

I feel good about my body except being a little overweight, but I losing weight with a goal 

of 175 pounds or less. I don't need anymore sleep. I doing fine with the 6 or 7 hours sleep

I get now. I've also been retired for 19 years, so I don't need to play hookie from work. I 

did play hookie once when I was a letter carrier for the post office. I had an operation that 

removed a growth from the inside of my left foot. It was a result of me pedaling a bicycle

with no pedal, my foot slipped off and resulted in gash about 2 inches long at our house 

on Ottobine Road just outside Dayton, Virginia when I was about 12 years old. One of my 

parents drove me to the doctor's office for stitches and about 25 years later the growth 

appeared. I had to take off for a while to allow the operation to heal and decided to drive 

Ryan to Nashville, he, like me, likes country music. I had to use a crutch which allowed me 

to get around pretty good. At some point in time I received a call from my wife saying that

one of the supervisors at the post office had called wondering if I was healed enough to 

return to work, probably spending to much money on overtime because I was absent, she 

probably saying that I was sleeping or just resting. I phoned the supervisor from Nashville 

pretending I was home and that I still could not work because of my operation. That's 

probably 1 of the biggest lies I've ever told, but I don't believe that lie hurt anyone so I 

don't fell any guilt in doing it. If the supervisor new the truth, he would be the one "going 

postal."

Roland and I was cussing the other day on 4 videos I publish which is not normal for me 

and probably not normal for Roland. I'm a bad influence on him sometimes.

I try to limit my cussing to 2 words which you may think are cuss words, but I don't. Damn 

and hell. You see, damn is a structure that holds back water and hell is a place where I 

might be going. 

And the last. I have never allowed anyone to intimidate me or take away my own self 

esteem or dignity, period.

My goal if I had 6 months to live would be to ask forgiveness of everyone still alive that I 

thought I had done some wrong to. I have already asked forgiveness from 2 people, my 

math and typewriting teachers in high school. My math teacher died sometime after I 

went to her home to apologize for my bad behavior in class, she asking me to come into 

her house for a visit, not remembering my disruptive behavior, but I did. I didn't accept her 

invitation for an extended visit, now believing that my apologies would have more 

genuine if I would have. My typewriting teacher said she, also, did not remember my bad 

behavior, but again, I did. I know that there are a lot more people, I need to apologize to, 

but for now, I can't remember. 

If I go to Heaven, I'll remember and be able to apologize to everyone I did wrong to 

including my parents because I was a rebellious son while we where here on earth 

together.
