Really, I’m not grumpy.

No, dear Shelley.  You are most definitely NOT off of the hook.  Now that you have bitten of the fruit of reading and responding, you must know wriggle your fingers on your keyboard while trying to write a good excuse for me to let you off of the hook.

Thanks for your responses.

I don’t think that I am a major grump.  Perhaps I have found a way to let some issues flow.  These things formed into sentences are just thoughts that I have already had.  Because I may have never found anyone that I could fuss near and not cry, I chose this medium.  This is good for me.  I am able to vent and my Log doesn’t judge me.  The Log just sits there and takes it like a good Log should.

I am not grumpy

My mother said that she isn’t calling me anymore because I am grumpy.  I won’t go into all of the conversation because it is an oft told story that most of you already know.  Here is the short salient part.  Most telephone calls are disturbing.  Basically because most people are doing something else other than sitting around waiting for the phone to ring.  Well, at least, I do.  I am either watching TV, or changing channels, or on the computer, or playing with my daughter, or abusing her mother, or eating, or dreading another telemarketing call.

beetch dadi!

Today Trinity and I went to the beetch and played with the horseshoe crabs, Spirling, Minnows, sand, hermit crabs, and other yucky sea life.  The tide was coming in when we got there and we were able to enjoy the low water level in some areas of the beetch.

There were locals there catching fish and shrimp for bait that they will use for fishing tomorrow.  There were sooo many shrimp in the shallow water being pushed into the marshland with the tide.  It was interesting to me to see tiny shrimp and fish riding the tide.  Be gentle, I am a fella that is still “green” to this area.

Perhaps tomorrow, I will try and post some more recent images of us.

My cousin Lawrence Hill

My cousin has been the subject of much media coverage in his home state of AZ.

Before I go much further with this, let me explain that although I know that Lawrence in my cousin, he probably has no clue that I exist.  The last time I saw him he was “knee high to a grasshopper”.  Waay back during the season 1989-1990, I lived in San Bernardino, CA.  Lawrence’s parent’s Janet and Larry lived in Rialto (just down the street).  It was then that I got to know little-bitty Lawrence and his younger brother Lorenzo.

I left CA during May of 1990, citing irreconcilable differences with the culture of So. Cali.  That was the last time I saw the young soon-to-be college basketball star Lawrence.  I am as impressed as I am sure his parents are that he has been doing so well in school and on the court. 

Maybe one day I will be one of those loser family members that is the subject of discussions surrounding the unknown familial periphery of a sports star.  (what does that mean?)

I hope that when/if he decides to accept a well paid position as a member of a sports conglomerate, we don’t have to discuss my inability to accept the willingness of people to believe that an individual can EARN millions of dollars playing a game.

Care to fight about this? Email or post a comment.
