If You Don't Take Care

I heard this saying "If you don't take care of yourself someone else will."

This really covers a lot of territory.

  • If you are sick you don't take care of yourself because you can't so if it is severe you need a doctor.
  • If you drink or are addicted you need support to get off it or legal help or someone eventually to bury you.
  • If you just do not feel like doing things you probably need psychiatric or social help.
  • If you do not take care of your education you probably will need government programs to survive.
  • If you are not conscious of your diet needs you will need diet help, medical help or help with your burial at an early age.
There are a lot of people who make a lot of money telling us what to do because we don't take care of ourselves sensibly.

Isn't it degrading putting up with the dehumanizing aspects of applying for and using foodstamps. Welfare because we cannot get hired is brain numbing.

It is not usually your fault if you get cancer but you are in for an experience of dependence on doctors.

All that matters is that you don't take care of yourself whether it is because you can't or won't. What you end up doing is losing a serious chunk of your freedom. The ability to choose is seriously diminished.

Go back to some sort of school. Get rid of the debt and put away a rainy-day-fund. Shape up!

Unless you are totally buried in self deception or denial you have a chance. Unless you are terminal you have options.

We Have Snow!

It is 6:45 pm and it has been snowing all day.

I am planning to plow some snow before it gets dark.

A guy across the street was out plowing a little while ago. A buddy of his was watching and his little pre-school daughter was there with two dogs.

The daughter was running around and getting dumped in snow piles. She was having a ball.

The dogs were both running all over and getting shot at by the snow from the snow blower. They were actually running in front of it to get sprayed more by the snow.

I think everyone is going to sleep very well tonight.

The Cold Drags On

I was shocked when I saw that the temperature at my usual departure time was only 3 degrees.

I have always been someone who has enjoyed the winter weather. Everything seems so white and nice when we get some snow. All the defects are covered up and the world seems clean and new.

I have had a snow blower for a couple of years now and the thing works just great now that I have learned most of the idiosyncrasies. It is actually fun to go out and clear the snow.

Really though, I do think we have had enough of these good times. A little warm-up would be appreciated.

Leave the polar vortexes and Calgary Clippers for another year. I really think I have had enough for this year. Bring on the lawn mower!
