I Try To Please

Today I was firmly told by a nice older fella I needed to get off my backside and post. I explained I was not in the mood.  Matter of fact I'm kinda ticked off...because -

Our home air unit is on the fritz and I'm sure repairs will cost us a pretty penny and the friggin unit isn't even eight years old. My Sweet Wife has strange worrisome back pains which will haunt me until we get a doctor's report. Our yard is a mess and when I have a rare afternoon to attend it the weather turns against me. My reading list is a mile long and continues to grow. I haven't time for my hobbies, which is dead skunk drag my butt in the mud kick a democrat in the knee awful.

So, here I sit with sore feet with my cell at a constant scream. Just spent the last fifteen minutes answering text messages. I'm about to throw this Blackberry across the room. There, see, two more beeps...

Oh, before I forget...to my constant reader in Everett, Washington - thanks. I appreciate it.

At the request of my lovely wife we went to the movies...you know, the kind of movie where other people sit in the same darkness with you and use their cell phones as flashlights, yep that kind. The title of this movie was 'God's Not Dead.' She loved it. I enjoyed the fact she loved it. I highly recommend it..on DVD. Truthfully it was a pretty good movie.

Rambling...this cell is about to drive me nuts. Just checked and it's Senior - he can wait.

Peace...it's all I ask. Beep....

Stephen

  1. Should have never started using the phone for that to begin with. I make it a point to out right ignore all text messages I found if you do that they stop pretty quick.

    Another neat trick is to throw the phone away ever so often "by mistake" a couple of days looking for it and people give up as well.

    1. PP, unfortunately its the only phone I own, well other than the shop's landline. We both use cell's and dropped our home hardline....but you have a valid point.

      Senior, of course.

  2. Welcome to my life.

    Joking around with the guys on the job site today. We decided to wait and see how long it took my "smart" phone to reach 50 unread emails.

    It took 3 hours.

  3. See your problem is too much sun, and our problem here in MN is lack of sun. P.P. has too many bee on his mind, and kymber and Jam are burned out too.

  4. Kicking a Democrat in the knee isn't awful.

  5. Sometimes not owning a cell phone is a good thing. Kids said I should have one. Told them I didn't want to be in touch 24-7. Keeps my stress level down.

    1. I agree, Vicki. But when out and about and with the complete dismantling of all phone booths....kinda comes in handy. Thanks, Sweet Lady.

  10. A Blackberry? Man you ARE a dinosaur! I'm still a flip phone man myself. But being in business I know a lot of former Blackberry users that switched to a smartphone and they say when you switch you will not just throw the Blackberry away, you will do something to torture it to death as punishment for being such a piece of crap. Just passing on the info.

    1. Double, I know, me the dinosaur....the wife has a Samsung Galaxy four with all the bells and whistles. Since we've been with AT&T since Noah was a child we're grandfathered and have unlimited service tailored to our preferences. I'm hardheaded about new tech and will probably wait as long as possible before I switch...then again, the 'five' model is soon to be released...we'll just wait and see. Thanks, my friend.

  11. Stephen,

    Put everything on hold, take care of yourself and Sweet Wife. When you feel up to it, then tackle what tickles your fancy.

    Don't sweat all the small stuff!!!!

  12. Yes . . Sandy is right, Stephen. Sure hope Sweet Wife start feeling better and that the cranky air-condioner straightens out ok. Lots of people want to put our arms around your shoulder and give a hug. Hang in there.

    1. Thank you, Cathy. She feels a little better. Her back has given her trouble for years. Nice hug, thanks.
