It's been a while....

I guess I need to dust things off and blog. Tomorrow is my birthday and I have planned absolutely nothing to celebrate it. Is this the start of getting older? I must admit, I'm not sure this is what I thought I would be at this age. 

Also, Subaru has been running a summer clearance sale that has me interested in a new car, but I don't need one. I like my 2006 Forester. It's paid for and only has 63K on it. A co-worker bought a new 2013 Outback Premium and I sat in it and checked out all the bells and whistles today. For me to even come close to buying a new car, the dealer would have to give me what I want for my car, and we all know that will never happen. 

Anyway, back to the birthday...what to do? What do I want to buy? I don't need anything? 

 At least in four more days I will be on vacation for two weeks. I'm happy about that. My nieces are visiting during that time.  We will be taking them all over Oregon. Hopefully I will have something to blog about!

 Cheers!

People

I get tired of people lately. I know "tis the season to be Merry", but people make that difficult. Whether they know it or not, or know it all... They just can't let anything go. Or take something the way it was meant. There is some hidden meaning. Don't act like you know me, and know what I am thinking... Or even what I meant when I blog, tweet or FB comment... You don't have access to my thought process. I love how people get this "holier-than-thou" attitude. Guess what, you live in a glass house... Yes I am talking to you! You're so quick to put words in mouth, yet you don't read everything through. You make judgments based on something you thought you read, more like 'read into' on my comment. Just stop! Worry about your own house, your own closet, your own problems. What is it with people lately? What happened that everyone feels they need to state their opinion about every thing a person says and does? And what makes them think I care? Really, I am happy you have an opinion, truly I am. I just never asked you for it. That's what your twitter account, your blog, your FB is for. Your opinion, your thoughts, your rant. Yes, I can hear it now, "but Jim, by posting this you're inviting dialogue!". Why, yes I am, guess what this is my blog. Comment on FB, comment on Twitter. That's what they're for....don't attack me personally, I may just bite back. And if you don't like what I wrote/write/state/comment/tweet, then stop following me, or unfriend me. You won't hurt my feelings.
