PostLife and times of TM

I'm thinking I am going to try this blog thing again. This time I have left it open to all including visitors. All will be able to make post and to read post.

To start things off let me say, I'm tired. Not just a little now and then, I'm tired most of the time. I want to be 30 again and to have the energy and drive that I had then but with the experience I have now. Yeah I know, it doesn't work that way. I know I have been blessed in life with abilities that frankly a lot of folks lack. I should be grateful that my life has gone as well as it has but find myself wanting more and better. While I haven't changed the world, I do feel like I have made accomplishments that many wouldn't even try. I like me. I know that there are some who don't and that's alright, I don't care much for them either.

More to come but it's hard to say when or what that might be. Do I bore you with the daily details of my life ? I don't know why that would interest you. Shall I expound on my feelings ? I don't know that I'm able to let people get that close. I guess we shall see what we see

Is The Island dying ?

I fear it is and yet at this point in time, I don't even care. Some will cry, some will celebrate and some will be in denial that they had anything to do with it.

I have some thoughts as to what may come next but I'm not quite ready to share them.

You know, I never figured you to be a quitter. Aren't you the one that told once that if it's worth having, it's worth fighting for? Guess maybe I should go back and read that conversation again. This was during our discussion after Lindy left the last time.

Is this because Lindy left? Or that some that used to come around, don't anymore?

The Island will only die if one allows it to. This place can be restored to what it once was. Have you tried contacting some of those that no longer come to ask them why?

From my own personal experience, a site dies when those on it just give up. Every site experiences down times when people stop coming for whatever reason. However, there is a small group on Island that seem to care enough to come here and post. You built it up once, you can do it again if you care to do so.

Just my opinion.

Read my last "sign" again. You're right, it doesn't work with you. And please stop with the emails, I'm not interested nor do I usually succumb to child psychology. Telling me how happy this will make Dave isn't any incentive to me either way. You're ex-long time friend Dave is an ass and I'm pretty sure always has been, why would I possibly care what him or Liz or Nanny thought ? And I don't care about all the people YOU have talked to or what was said in those conversations so dropping the name of virtually everyone on The Island and why they may or may not be posting is of little interest to me either. And while I'm speaking to you directly, you are right about one thing in those emails, we will never be friends. I trust my friends. When I can't, they are no longer friends. And finally, I don't need any preaching in sign form. I already thank God for what I have and I already trust Him to supply my needs.Thank you very much.

Cloudy, I have no intention of shutting down anything, I don't think I ever said that. Do I think it may be dying of natural causes ? There I'm not so sure. I guess ultimately that would be up to you guys who post ( or don't ).

I don't think my insurance will cover addiction. Seriously, you know I want you to do what is best for you. But then you knew that.

You would both hate it. Gone a week home for two days gone a week. Hotels and fast food. Crabby people and lots of lines to wait in.

I don't have to go on trips to be around crabby people and stand in long lines.
We might be worth it until we got the "good stuff", but I think it would be a whole different story after that. We might find ourselves standing on the side of some interstate with our thumbs pointing upward. Maybe Cloudy's husband would drive by and take pity on us. Hey D, over here, over here

Can't argue that even a little.

No way. I'll just get on the good stuff too.

I can just see Cloudy's reaction to D picking up two female hitch hikers.

TM WROTE: I can just see Cloudy's reaction to D picking up two female hitch hikers.

Wouldn't bother me in the slightest cuz there's no way y'all could climb up into that thing......sorry Ladies...I used to climb up into a cabover when we drove together (the cab sits directly over the engine). He's driving a long nosed now and it's even harder to get up into it....but you are more than welcome to try!!!!! It's just not safe to pick up hitchers now a days...But I'm glad he's not driving a refer anymore.....too many hijacked trucks....affraid

I will have to remember that Cloudy.I know holding the ipad instead of putting it down on the desk is part of my problem.I have some Flexeril on hand for now.

Flexaril is good for some people but I might as well take sugar pills for all the good it does me.....before I had my NDES and was in a chemical induced coma if I took 2 mg of Valium I'd snooze a good 8 hours and Benedryl used to give me a horrible narcotic "Hangover"....not any more.......
