New Pope

Pope Francis.

It reminds me of the time the Pope was in Calgary.  People were saying "whose the guy in the pointy hat with Milk River Madman?"

Best wishes Pope Francis.

Moving...two words

It sucks.

Have made two trips to Worland since Sunday. Have one more  to make and I'll be home free. When I moved into my little townhouse in 2001 I had little, now I have more. I have made two trips to Worland and Friday will be my last.

This part of the plan is one more than I thought. Other than that I'm right on track.

As my dad told me "Life has only one direction and that is forward"

Good advice.

Random thoughts #26

Things that crossed my mind while wondering what the guy in "Tie A Yellow Ribbon" did time for.  He was in the joint for three long years. What did he do? It was the early 70's and what did three years get you back then? Grand theft was still probably 20 years. So what was it? On with the random   thoughts.

1) The Rolling Stones are not even close the greatest band ever. This foolish talk should end now. They aren't even in the top five British bands. Those are:The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Queen and The Kinks.  The Stones are about 23rd. I'm sure I can come with 17 bands better than the Stones. FRom 5 to 23 I mean.  The Sex Pistols immediately come to mind.

2) Of the last statement, the debate for number one starts and ends with The Beatles.  All other arguments are null and void. Don't try to make them for anyone else. It isn't going to happen. Cease!!

3) Of the American bands the title belongs to The Doors.  Please don't tell me it is The Eagles. Don Henley would sell his would to Satan to be as good a song writer and singer as Jim Morrison. For the record, The Eagles don't make the top five either. Yawn.

4) I could really get used to not working.  I am not one of those guys who if I won the lottery would wonder what I would do with the money. Quitting my job would be the first thing.  Hell, I quit my job two weeks ago without the lottery.  Now it is my goal to win it. I guess you have to play which is something I don't do.  I think playing increasing your odds.

5) The move to Wyoming was well planned.  I saved money until I hit my number. As I stated, Titan was given the chance to retain me.  I did not present it as an ultimatum. Quite the opposite, I asked if they would entertain the possibility of my leaving. As stated they declined so I left.  Was going anyway with or without them.
