Old Fools Journal: Life Happens or If I had a Job I would have to quit to take care of my personal life.

The kilt gets attention but mostly the complaints are from men. Most women are not offended at all nor do they feel threatened. Some men appear to feel threatened and most derogatory remarks are just silly indicating insecurity. I am happy to say that some of my readers are silly (thankfully) but all seem to be mature adults in matter such as these.The first asparagus of the season. Sweet and tender. Too good to cook. Eat them like candy from the garden. I ate these before Friday and I am glad because when the "blood letter" with the knives finished working in my mouth I was not in the mood for food. I thought he ruined my pie hole but it is getting better. At least now it doesn't hurt. I have gotten really familiar with various soups. Tomorrow I can have soft food. I think SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) has mashed potatoes and steak gravy planned for me. I love it but I think she is trying to kill me with good food. I no longer can eat corn on the cob, tacos or an apple but if I can get it past the gapping hole where my front teeth use to be then it's done for.

The surgeon called me last night to see if I was OK. I have not experienced anything like that in many years. I told him not to worry I had plenty of drugs and was feeling no pain. I ain't into pain.

The pain lately has been the computer and only because I have not been in the mood. My new computer came with Windows 7 and I decided to use it as long as it would work. I cannot say that it has been difficult. The only problem is that Windows only speaks windows and I have other stuff. Fortunately I still have a backup Linux machine that can interpret for Microsoft. I don't expect windows to last long. The way I use a computer MS windows goes south in about 6 months.

Microsoft wants you to use only their stuff and I don't. Most all my work is on the internet somewhere so I can work from any computer. The rest is on separate backup drives.

I don't take this computer stuff any more seriously than I would a radio. If one does not work move on to one that does. I used to be a geek but now I only want to know where the on/off switch is.
That 7 by 7 inch square is it. Don't look like much does it. Pencil is for scale. The backup USB hard drive is nearly half this size.
Wireless keyboard and mouse came with it. I have small hands so these fit me very well.

This report is not a complaint just a report of life happening. This poor guy only ran out of gas which seems to happen a lot these days however when he comes back he will find that life is happening for him too.

Oh how I love fresh picked raw asparagus. Do not have access to any anymore. I envy you, not the part about the teeth, since I am going to have to do somethiing about mine some day soon.

We had asparagus twice last week, and although ours was purschased from the supermarket, I still like it. Good luck with the teeth. IMO, wear what you want and if some don't like it...tough shit.

I've always thought that being forced into a diet of blending stuff up would be an opportunity to try some new and interesting foodstuffs. But if all else fails I would always have my split pea with ham, which I could eat every day.

Glad the surgery went well! Asparagus kicks ass. I love that vegetable.

Peace :)

Honestly, I thought the photo of the asparagus was a visual aid for the guys who experience insecurity about kilts as opposed to those who don't. I'm kinda sorry it wasn't. I have my own date with dental destiny very soon. Ain't gonna happen till the last one falls out.
