Time's Up!

Yikes.  This needs to be posted quickly to get it in before tomorrow.  Today has only a few minutes remaining.

It'd be nice to have some better content.  Maybe put a little more thought into it.  Good luck with that.

There's less time than there was.  Even less now.  Still less.

Only two minutes left!  Gotta post it.  Here I go...

Blinking

*Yawn*

Still a few things left to do before Thor's day ends.  Nothing major, just daily stuff.  Cleaning up and all that.

Ghosts of other times reveal their apparitions when time pauses. Keep the movie rolling.  Tomorrow brings another's day.

Key Grip

Feels like I woke up right as the credits were about to roll.  I really wanted to watch the movie, too.  Instead, I'm left with random names and titles like 'Grip' or 'Foley'.

Swimming in it

Music is an ocean where everybody can find their own place to swim.  You can swim alone.  You can swim in large groups.  

Some folks like to swim in the same place all the time.  Others get in a mood to swim elsewhere.  There's always that one familiar spot, though, where the current takes you where you need to be.

Lower Side Band Brain Waves

Subcurrents, easily interpretable only in the extreme, move through life like microwaves from an unseen transmitter.  Finely tuned receivers, custom created by life and nature, operate from controls with no procedural instruction.  A lifetime, or more, is required by most to even understand the purpose, much less be capable of full utilization.

Paintings and Passages

Carl Bloch's Sermon looks down on me from the wall, today, in the early morning dimness, reminding me that the meek shall inherit the Earth.  It doesn't make note of any eggs, chocolate bunnies or even cellophane grass.  Just salt of the Earth.

Blackjack!

I've owned this house for 21 years, now.  If it was my kid, it'd be old enough to drink.  If it was my kid, it'd probably have plenty of reasons to drink.

I just drank a tall glass of water, after finishing the grass for the first time this year.  This is the 21st year I'll have to do it.  21 years is a long time to cut grass.

I've had my current mower for going on 6 years.  The one that came with the house lasted about 6.  The tractor I bought after that made it about that long before it broke down for about the 4th time, prompting a re-evaluation of what I wanted my lawn to look like.  I still intend to fix that tractor, again, one day.

The washing machine and dryer almost made it 20 years.  The stove and refrigerator made it about 20 years, too.  All of them came with the house when I bought it, already several years old, at least.  They've only recently been replaced, in the last year or so.

All of them were used on a regular basis.  I've always done my own laundry, cooking, etc..., so I got more than my money out of them.  The last power outage during the 2020 Hurricane Zeta finished off my fridge and stove.  I suspect at least the fridge would've made it a few more years, were it not for that.

Those old appliances served longer than I'd been alive when I bought them.  I strongly doubt I'll ever be that useful.  I'll be lucky to see another 21 years.  I'll probably bust.  

Hit me!
