A New House in a New Town... As of July 15th 2013... I spent 56 out of 58 Years in the same Neighborhood. I've moved 14 blocks in 56 Years... Ch Ch Ch Ch Changes..... I traded Ducks in My Yard for Deer. I don't miss the Portland traffic but it Rained Yesterday. I had to get out and toss the tennis ball for My Dog until We both had enough Rain. It's been a Great Move so far.
Life's a Beach... Then Your Dog gets all wet and sandy and brings the beach home with You. At least that's what My Dog does. I'm a Recovering Catholic, I went to Catholic School for 9 years, but I gave it up for Lent. Was a Boy Scout and an Altar Boy. Now, My Church has Trees, and a River Runs through it. Last time I did much dating, Leisure Suits were in, so were Platform shoes. Everyone was doing the Bump. I think I'm a long way behind. I have a serious addiction to Sand and Salt Water requiring frequent treatments. My life is pretty uncomplicated, unless it involves meeting women and dating. I know this much. If this works, no one will be more surprised than me. I have heard I was handsome. I have heard I was no prize, I'll leave that up to You. I try to get to the Gym in the mornings and around the Park in the evenings with My Dog. I'm getting the hang of being Retired. I'm not in any hurry but if I come out of this with a Friend or two, then I'm ahead of the game. I'm not as Scary as I look. You want to see Me Smile, walk into the Room."
I think meeting Women is even harder than a Spin Class at the Gym. No matter how hard or fast I pedal I can't seem to catch up.
"Love is like a Trout Stream. Try to catch a Trout Stream with a Dam, and You get a Lake. Try to catch it in a Bucket and all You get is a Bucket of Water. Try to stick some under a Microscope and You get a close up view of some writhing amorphous Microcooties. A Trout Stream is only a Trout Stream when it's flowing between it's own two banks, at it's own pace, in it's own sweet way"... From The River Why, by David James Duncan.
