I have heard and read that no one can make you happy but I disagree. Being with my brother Stephen makes me happy. I can be myself and together we can be silly, happy & joyful. Sometimes when we hear some great music whether outside or inside the house we will break into a Happy Dance. Therefore my Happiness is my Awesome AweTism Guy (Drum-roll Please) Stephen Vincent Palmer!!  Stephen Palmer is the most Amazing Autism Guy on the Planet!!

My cat Sylvester also brings me Happiness.

ARE PEOPLE REALLY THAT STUPID?


The Answer to that question is a resounding Yes!! People are stupid and then some. They have signed the Insanity Clause!

SERENDIPITY

It’s not the first or the last time Garry and I will have this conversation. Really, we started having it a few years ago when we realized how many people were convinced there is no global weather change in progress. When Trump hit the ground running for office, we had a lot of trouble believing other Americans could be stupid enough to really vote for someone so obviously unqualified for the position.

When he was elected, I had to accept how many Americans are far more stupid than I imagined possible. Even all these months later, I still can’t fathom the depth of their dumbness.

Last night, on Facebook — I swear this is true — there was an article announcing all the hurricanes are man-made with laser beams. Proof? A Chinese guy with glasses said so. I got through perhaps three paragraphs before I clicked off. I’m sure millions…

If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter would go?

No. Absolutely Not! I already had that experience Thanks to Uncle Sam and the U.S. Army I experienced riding in a helicopter. Throwing up is not my idea of a good time. The pilot attempt to see how close he could get to the German mountains.  I did not appreciate the Aeronautics show at my expense. Also helicopters are subject to the weather. For me the helicopter ride was the Vomitus Express.

What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts)

Seafood, eggs and nuts.

I have high blood pressure so too much cheese is bad for my health. So is the consumption of meat.

My digestive system no longer works properly which is why I’m sick every month. 

What would be your preference, awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon?

I work evening and nights. I’m a graveyard shift worker so I try to sleep during the day. Yes I chose the late shift for more money and for my chronic insomnia.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Athletic

 

Well I had to laugh when I saw today’s Daily Writing Prompt.  The last time I was any where near athletic was in my early 40s. I did pretty well for most of my forties until I had a stroke at age 49 then it was all downhill after that. My best athletic or rather when I was at my personal best was when I was in the U.S. Army. I went in at age 18 and left at age 22. I was in tip top shape. Anyone who has ever been through Basic Training knows that you must or will be in the best physical condition of your entire life.

Unfortunately I’ve had to live with the effects of the stroke. Losing most of the vision in my left eye, coordination, perpetual exhaustion, balance issues etc.  The latest thing is losing sensation in my right arm.  One night while on overtime I tried to reach for my utensil to eat my food and my arm would not obey my commands.  This has happened several more times. Mostly I just ignore it. Can’t stand doctors or hospitals. Had my fill of them along with the disrespect abuse that goes along with Western medicine. Between 2008 and 2015 I was in the hospital on a regular basis. Horrible experiences and for the most part they can’t or don’t help you. Waste of time and money. Plus I don’t want to take hospital and doctor bills with me into retirement and No Health insurance does not cover everything.  Slowly I’m moving towards most holistic natural health treatments as modern Western medicine does not work for me and most medical professionals are arrogant know-it-alls.  Plus most drugs distributed in America will kill you rather than cure you. Poison in a bottle.  The side effects nearly killed me.

But back to the laughable athletics. When I was a kid and during my teenage years I was quite flexible. I could lay down on the floor and bend my legs behind my head.  The advance of arthritis has taken that superpower away. Just getting out of bed is an Olympic event for me. I usually miss at least one or two days every month from work due to physical pain.  It is just one of those things you must accept and adjust as a part of aging. Plus the type of work I do for a living contributes to the pain. However quitting or resigning is not an option so I will be living with the pain for the duration.

I do lots of walking mostly because I don’t drive and to keep the joints somewhat limber. The winter months are the worst for me since I’ve had my joints actually lock up. One of the many reasons to loathe and despise the cold freezing New York winters. However if all goes well this will be my last winter in the workforce. Hopefully if it’s God’s will and I can pay off all my bills or at least most of them I will retire and spend the winter indoors.

Hibernation is a good thing.

So if there is an Athletic even for sleeping, napping, resting, I would win the Olympic Gold Medal hands down! LOL!!  🙂   😀

Here is a picture of me in the barracks with a fellow soldier. As you can see I had a full head of thick dense full hair. No eyeglasses. No health problems. Cute. Good-looking.

No I don’t remember his name but you can see that I was young, pretty and had lots of attention from men. All that is now reversed!! My how times change!!
