i'm a creature of habit.......not as much now that i'm retired.......but the job[s] i had to have a plan was necessary.........never worked out completely the way i planned....but it was easier to modify an existing plan then having no plan at all..
i play, have played, an online game for 12+ years..........i know how i want to play.....but sometimes i have to change my focus......and from time to time..........i haven't reacted as quickly as i should have...but i've learned that you can teach an old 'dog' new tricks......

it probably was the worst weather day.over the last week but....not a bad day.......high 50's......overcast.....but needed to go to the local market......it had been almost a week since i had shopped and was running out of certain supplies......got a great price for my fav soup......but other then that walk a quiet day......

the first post i ever made to this blog was 10/29/02...........and although i have decided to move my wit and silliness to face book.......for many reasons i can't give this blog up.....i may post to it at a much less common rate......but it's hard for me to give it up........as Ben Franklin once said ..this blog over the years has allowed me to learn to write 'light extemporanea'.......i always could write technical, theological...and poetry....i always had the vocabulary.......but to write in a conversational tone was beyond me......my many posts here taught me that [this will be my 5576th post here]........my poetry blog and this one will endure..........maybe this one will become a little more serious....haven't decided......on the other it may just become what it was.....a day to day account of my life.......or a bit of both......but it will continue........

i have reconsidered my choices......this blog was the precursor....not only to my other blogs....but of other things..although i may not post here regularly.......and although for other reasons i may have walked away in the past......i have no intense to do so now............

have decided to abandon two of my blogs for the time being.....have moved them to private.....haven't decided yet whether to let them die, bring them back, or have them brought back as something completely different......even this one's fate is up for grabs.....much of what i write here has been moved over to my face book timeline......there is a link to it over on the left.......

it's been a while since I've posted....weather has been what i like to call the 'Yo-yo effect'....and have been from mid 30's to low 50's daytime to mid 20's to low teen's at night...wet, rainy,light if any sunshine...and i have a case of what we called back in the day as 'cabin fever'......and am effected by this often between winter and spring.....i love the 4 seasons.....but i hate this time of year....it has a affect on my physical condition.....and that  has a a negative affect on my mental processes....
but the weather is turning.....but toward the weekend.....sun and temps in the 60's.......

i bought a can of canned corned beef a while back just to have it....just seeing it in my pantry reminded me of my childhood.....now i have a pretty good palate....but some of my favorite food items are more memory then palate......canned corn beef....simple....a little sea salt....some garlic....a bit of pepper and some good brown mustard.......but that just triggered other memories of my mom's dad.....why i love fried haddock.....why i love hard shell jewish rye.......we sometimes can never leave what we learned as a child....never forget the memories from 60 years ago.....
[ oh as to my post below....i really need to read what i wrote before]

it's been a while since i posted here.....i went on face book as a whim....didn't figure it would amount to much...got 'wandering' around face book one day and found a profile of an old [ both literal and figurative] friend i hadn't seen in almost 50 years....high school graduation....and over a few weeks have picked up another 15 or so of my old classmates....and have spent more time on face book.....
now i not normally a klutz......however from time to time.....what can i say.....slipped and hurt my back....earlier this week.....getting better but......oy vey......
