MOST

April 10th, 2015

For the most part, this column says exactly what I’ve been thinking for quite a while.

SO

April 9th, 2015

It is so, so, so sad that this column speaks the absolute truth about lies in today’s world.

LESS

March 24th, 2015

It is easily arguable that she has accomplished even less than Obama before he became president…..at the very least he out maneuvered her to become president……..and then there’s this column that to me makes an indisputable argument in showing up her complete lack of ever having done anything of any positive significance, yet, and unfortunately, her ability to maintain a high profile, mostly via her adoring liberal mainstream media, seems to be keeping her political potential quite high, most especially amongst the many liberals and lefties in this country.

BUTTONS

February 18th, 2015

It never before even crossed my mind that someday “buttons” would be a daily challenge…….that I’d face a row of shirt buttons that would purely perplex me, not only by how hard it was gonna be for me to get them all stuck through their little holes, but how long a time it was gonna take me to do it, assuming that I could even do it at all……..this all because of my fingers now being so insensitive and tingly……..fortunately I can still manage to get most of my buttons buttoned, providing I plenty of time, but then only the ones that I can see, while those that I cannot see, such as the one next to a shirt’s top button (rarely wear tie but sure for me to button very top one would be impossible) that’s too far up under my chin for me to easily see, my dear wife does these hard-to-see buttoning jobs, as well as sticking my hearing aids into my ears, otherwise I’d likely have no ears left by now.

TYPING

February 16th, 2015

Soon after my first chemo treatment, I noticed the tip of my fingers becoming a bit tingly and a little less sensitive in allowing me to identify an objects simply by touching it, but not bad enough so as to be a big bother to me…….and then slowly their tingly feeling increased while their sensitivity to touch decreased to where soon after my second chemo treatment, this condition has also spread down all my fingers to their first joint, thereby now definitely being a very big bother…….most especially when I’m trying to punch something out on this computer keyboard and the resulting far more than normal typing mistakes I now make I know to be due primarily to this particular “side effect” of my chemo treatments……yep, typing is now for me a bit of pain in my posterior as well as in my fingers.

SHAVE

February 15th, 2015

Ah, what a relief it is to not have to shave every morning……OK, OK,   so for the past several years, until recently anyhow, I’d usually shave only every other morning……..but beginning a week or so ago, what with what the chemo treatments had done to me, well, I could go more’n two days without shaving and my face would still stay smooth as a baby’s bottom…….yeah, my question though is this…….just how many days can I go without needing to shave, or will my face continue to stay smooth as a baby’s bottom for months and months?……….indefinitely?……or just until soon after I’ve taken my last chemo treatment?  I mean this is vital information in order for me to be sure not to suddenly run out of razor blades whenever this “vacation from shaving” comes to an end.

ABOUT

February 14th, 2015

What do most people usually talk about the most?  Seems to me it’s whatever at the that moment happens to be the heaviest weight upon their minds, be it their family, their job, their work, their profession, their hobby, their politics, or be it their religion….or lack thereof……or, in particular be they a senior citizen, then be it their medical condition.

In the course of my own life, at one time or another, what I most talked about might have been any one of those subjects, but now though, by me being a senior citizen, I am most ready to talk about the last one mentioned, meaning my own medical condition.

So here I go…..several months ago I was told I have lung cancer……and so it is that this is now what I am most interested in talking about……….therefore and henceforth, much of my talking will be about this medical condition and/or its associated effects upon my daily living.

NAIL

February 8th, 2015

Sometimes a column hits the nail, my nail anyhow, so squarely on the head, so smack-ka-dab right flat on top of it, that I am a bit blown away by reading the column and then realizing that I am not alone in thinking almost identical thoughts.  Such was the case soon’s I read this column.

SENSE

February 7th, 2015

This column makes mighty good sense to me…….or in other words, I agree with it completely, although I would add a few stipulations to how we go about using our known hydrocarbon energy supply.

DIVERSITY

January 20th, 2015

This column goes directly to the point of the dark downside of “diversity” as it is now being proclaimed and implemented in this country, which to me is the real “truth of the matter” and certainly the most enlightening of anything on this subject that I have read so far…….yeah, just below the over use of “guilt” to obtain ones goals is the overuse of “sympathy” to make one feel morally superior in doing, what to me is most often the wrong thing……”guilt” is certainly the leader in motivating others to go along, but “sympathy” is not far behind……and personally, I’m sure “sympathy” is more difficult to ignore……I mean really, there are so many in this world in such a sad, sad situation through no fault of their own, yet, dang it, one must summon up the gumption to realize that their sympathy for these “so many”, when it means giving, giving and giving, until it’ll be  all we have, will eventually mean we too will have nothing, so what then will we the owners of nothing be able give to these “so many”?……far better that we better control our sympathy by “holding back”, meaning unfortunately our not giving to the “so many” now for such short term effects, but working fast and hard toward some program to move these “so many” forward within their own enviroment to where the long term effects will likely mean the “so many” will then not need be given anything, either now or in the future……but this will indeed require some overcoming of our “sympathy” or in other words doing the very difficult thing now that was once called “hard love”…..something that much more often than not, eventually had positive results.
