Ebb and Flow of My Life

I would truly like to act like a 10-year-old, stomp my feet, throw a tantrum, and generally piss and moan because I'm not getting my way. But, we don't do that as adults, do we? Okay, to be completely honest, I threw a mental tantrum and I don't care who knows it. Why can't people do what they say they're going to? I know that's a stupid question. I'm sure it has been asked ever since the Garden of Eden.

 I had some people very interested in my house. The man came out and looked at it, and then his wife and three daughters came out and looked at it. This family went as far as to have their contractor come out and go through it. In all, they paraded through my house a total of four times. The last time I heard from them was about a month ago. At that time, they told me we were right on track. Right on track for what? I suppose a waste of my time and another futile lesson in tire kickers.(or lookie-loos).

Let me ask you a question, okay? When you listen to videos, say, from YouTube, do you listen through your laptop speakers? If you do, I would like to make  a couple of suggestions. The cheapest alternative would be a set of earbuds. Here's what I use, and they were only $21 from Tiger Direct.....( what an amazing difference. The key is the sub-woofer)

Creative Labs Inspire A220 PC Speakers

I feel like I need to get my spiritual groove on. Take it away boys......

Here's a couple from Van Morrison........

Okay, I feel a lot more charged up. One foot in front of the other, trying to do the next right thing. If I don't get this house sold, I think I may go stark raving bonkers. By the way, I still have my ace up my sleeve, but, I'll tell you more about it when it gets played.

I hope everything is going well for you. Do you pray? If you do, I would like for you to pray for the following families. My heart goes out to all of them. I know that God is the Great Physician.

As we carry on, I am hoping and praying everything goes according to plan!

A Prelude to the Sale.

As we say here in Texas, Howdy y'all! Spring has sprung and I'm still here waiting for a house buyer. I have had a fair amount of callers and lookers, but no money yet. I do have an ace up my sleeve, but I'm not ready to reveal it, yet. I apologize for my lack of posting, I just don't like to ramble on, any more than usual. I do have a picture of the first day of spring.....

As most of you know, I am a dog person. I believe they were sent here by our Creator to help us on this path we call life. I was saddened by this story from the Bayfield Bunch.(CLICKY)  If I have any real complaints about the life of dogs, it has to be their longevity. Please use caution if you go to this link, I blubbered like a little baby. Al and Kelly, I think you are great doggie parents. God bless you.

Well, we got through April Fool's Day, and next will be the Easter weekend. Here is some pre-Easter music from an unusual character, Leonard Cohen.....

I sincerely hope everyone has a great week. I have friends staying here with me, and we're gonna do carpentry work and any other thing that would get this house ready for the sell. Let me add, not if it sells, but when it sells. So, fingers crossed, prayers said, mojo attended to, and any other thing that helps with the business at hand.

Thank you for stopping by. I've already told you how much it means to me, and it still does.
