she sits in her room sewing and i sit here tapping on this keyboard. she is accomplishing stuff , I am killing time. as i kill time, i am killing myself i realize but i have no bigger imagination than that. what does that sentence mean ? tap, tick, tap, tick, what sound does this keyboard make ? have any of you read george saunder s short stories..CIVILWARLAND..10TH OF DECENBER ? i read rave reviews of december and had our library buy it for us. i was disappointed cause the reviews built the book up and to me the reading was a let down. i got his first book of stories..civilwar land, am reading it now and find it much better than December. as i read, i feel as if he is trying to make me laugh out loud and doing so gives one a weird feeling especially when no one is with you. if you like weird writing with humor and some social commentary, read this book. see, i can accomplish something when i tap, tap, here. i have given you something to read which you might enjoy..take care..joe

These are the letters my dice rolled today and the pictures my cube turned up – 3 As, and r, i, s, e, f,g..cubes .. a cell phone, a flashlight, and eyeball with eye lashes, a turtle, a fish, an abacus, a magnet or horseshoe, a frowning face, an empty dialogue circle, and the number 4 di.
I challenge a writing genius here to write a story for me from the above clues. take care..joe
It s 5:25 and I am hungry after a difficult day of arguing with my wife and surfing the net. She re apolstered a chair and I sat here without an idea to impress my 32 subscribers.
I downloaded to my kindle Diane Keaton s autobiography and I will have two weeks to read it and will enjoy doing so. She is one of my favorite actresses. I can t spell apolster let alone reapolster. I will look it up and get back to this post. take care..joe
It s now 5:41 and closer yet to eating time..yea. Upholster is spelled thusly so but now according to this spell check, I have misspelled thusly or the word doesn t exist. I looked it up and it s an adverb and therefore I should be able to put an ly at the end of it. What do you subscribers think of that and for that matter, this post entirely.
When I was in school, I used to look at the clock and hope for time to go by so I could go home and play. Now, as a retired teacher, I play on line and watch the clock so I can go eat and watch TV. lol It s 4:28 and we will eat at 6:30 or somewhere near that time. We ,my wife of 44 years, and I will have to agree on what to watch on TV. I have many old movies which I prefer to watch and she wants to watch network TV shows, we don t have cable, don t want to pay a monthly bill for something we can obtain free with our antenna. I hate the commercial interruptions which is a part of network TV and which I do not have to deal with while watching my old movies. It s now 4:31, 3 minutes closer to eating time..lol..take care..joe
It s almost 3 pm and I have managed to stay away from boredom and depressing thoughts and I have 3 hours to go before I can think of eating supper and the evening of TV viewing.
Is it healthy to sit at a pc and play word games and on line chess all day ?
Each time I write on this site, I feel as if I am giving this writing away to someone else who will make money from it. I am too lazy to save it to my hard drive and publish it myself someday.
I am listening to THE CARPENTER S GREATEST HITS and they never fail to bring out memories, emotions. It s fun to feel sad at times although being the king of negative-thinking as I am I should be pursuing happy feelings. More later. I intend to write here each time I feel bored during this cabin fevered time of the year..take care..joe
I was surprised to see that 29 people are subscribed to my post. I wish some of you would contact me and comment on my posts. I especially wish that they would comment on my goal.. coping with living with a genius.. I think I have a unique marriage, situation here.
I get very bored while she does most of the important things to keep our household running. I have tried to do little things to give me satisfaction and a feeling of a purposeful life. I retrieve the newspaper from our rural paper box at 7 am, get the mail from another box at 5, put all things away after eating, dressing, undressing etc. She has many rules of the house which I try to maintain daily. Yesterday, while seeking the mail, I left the garage door open too long and endangered the plants she has growing in pots there. The temp was very cold and she came into the garage yelling at me ..you are killing my plants.. I didn t say a word. I just walked by her and took the mail into the house. take care..joe
i am surprised that no one noticed my revelation that i realize that when i lose at ..words.. it makes others happy and this helps me in my goal to learn to help others..lol. i believe that using all of my cheers helps others and refusing to make negative political comments on facebook is also a form of charity. take care..joe
at times, it becomes extremely difficult for me to accept myself. i keep making the same mistakes at chess. i seem to be getting worse while my opponents seem to be getting better. i will not quit. i am learning that i am a careless, non concentrating person at times and at age 70 i am going to continue to keep working on these weaknesses. the chess allows me to work on these weaknesses in a way that no other hobby can do. there is one player who has begun to dominate me so severely that it s hard to take. i will not quit playing him. i will improve and or learn about chess and myself by losing to him. take care..joe
in one more hour, i can go to sleep and know that in the am we are leaving my sister in law and our 94 yr. old grandpa to go home for a few days and then go to my granddaughter s 8 birthday party. these trips are difficult for me. this visit here means i sleep on an air mattress with my wonderfully built wife sleeping in the front room on a couch as i sleep in this little man cave den. of course, we cant couple while on the road cause someone might see the mess on the sheets or even smell our emissions.
we will arrive home around 2 pm, be very tired and know that another coupling won t occur till wed pm after my meeting with my slowly growing chess club. i keep checking my on line chess games at gameknot.com where my name is mrmrder and checking espn to see the baseball score and the football score. the giants will win game 6 which means the 7th game will decide who goes to the world series to meet the tigers on weds. night in the national league city. our birthday party will be held near detroit and my son in law may get a chance to go to a series game. we root for the indians for the regular season than root for the tigers in the play offs. we would root for the indians but they never or rarely ever get to the play offs.
