I was thinking today about the Robert Frost poem "the road not taken"........and thinking back on my life when faced with a clear choice between two different paths......that is either,or........i just don't think that way.....there has to be another choice........something in  the middle......something that takes the best of both.....so generally i get out my proverbial compass and broad sword and hack my own path somewhere between the two more obvious options.....have i got lost from time to time in metaphorical swamps, thickets.....been assailed by ninja squirrel, attacked by bees armed with 20mm guns....and more then that i will not mention at this time..........however i have found more often then not a peaceful glade.....a place where i can see more clearly........has it always been easy.......no..........but has it been worth the quest......frankly I'll let you know when i reach the end..........but would i trade the obvious paths for the one I've taken...............no way........

i always thought i had a sense of humor........a bit twisted, a bit to the gallows........but based on the current crop of sitcoms..........i just don't get them......have i lost my sense of humor.........or have the producers, writers.........of the modern sitcom lost theirs, assuming they ever had one............now don't get me wrong......i love puns......i love the double entendre.....i loved Spike Jones......where is George Carlin when we need him......even Don Rickles.....and Groucho Marx........
i guess i've grown too old.........and humor, and many other things have past me by........
when i was in my teens the i remember my elders talking about the return to the 'good old days'....and quietly inside laughingly...........but i have a point in my life when i find myself doing the same thing.........
