Jim He’s Dead……..

Not really, but there has been some signs of rigor mortis. Well it has been a wild ride this last year, but things are looking up. I’ve completely escaped the Hell Hole of Travis County for residency and work. I’m rebuilding slowly from a life torn asunder by unpleasant (meaning just plain shitty) and unexpected events of my own and some other’s doings. We’re talking losing it all, where one’s entire holdings of those physical items fit nicely into a car. Books and my clothing I had, but no electronics and in my case, a nice DVD library as well g.o.n.e. Yet the good L_rd had other things in mind for my journey through life and it IS good.

What did this poor excuse for a human get one may wonder? An awesome, kind, loving, business owning, MIT educated lady that treats me like a King, 5 acres of land (all entirely paid for mind you) in Hays County, far out in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, where we can shoot our fine collection of boom sticks while sitting on the porch. Employment that doesn’t involve ANY commute on other than two-lane country roads replete with beautiful scenery and wild life, about 25 minutes away. Just horrid eh? By the way she can out-cook the vast majority of those calling themselves “chefs” out there. Truth be told we do have our minor differences, she’s a large “L” libertarian and rather liberal on some social issues, but we’ve agreed to disagree there, in other words a non-issue. G-d has given me a priceless gift, a second chance at a happy, fulfilling life.

I only need an easy way to resume posting on these pages due to a lack of access to a real keyboard, an iPad just isn’t all that suitable for writing very easy at t’all, but that is being rectified soon.

Life does go on and those changes the Big Guy throws at us, while sometimes painful for awhile can ultimately be a very good thing. I’m living proof of that. Time to feed the chickens, so I’m signing off for now.

May you all be blessed by He who runs this show.

Your humble correspondent, JB.

    Oh I didn’t mean to say that it was your fault. I’m not exactly easy to get a hold of myself, so I’m in not much of a position to speak ;)

    Main thing is: You’re well and doing even better! :em01:

    Hays County, far out in the beautiful Texas Hill Country….

    I see that the county’s officially part of the Austin-Round Rock metro area. But the Hill Country is a fine home regardless. :em01:

    It’s always nice to be able to breath both physically and spiritually. Good for you.

    an iPad just isn’t all that suitable for writing very easy at t’all,

    Get yourself an ASUS Transformer Infinity TF700 (older one) or the TF701. It is an awesome tablet with a dedicated full keyboard dock that is also an additional battery.

    The stock ROM blows green monkey dicks, but get one and flash any of the custom ROMs (I’m hooked on the CROMi-X and variants) and this thing is zippier than a laptop.

    You can pick them up relatively cheap on eBay because everybody thinks they are dogs due to the horrible stock ROM.

    JB – if you need a cheap but workable laptop, let me dig around in the cellar a bit, I know we can find you something useful for no money down :em01:

    All I need is an address to ship it to and a bit of time as I am on the road again and buried in male cow splats (oops, I mean work).

    Send note to terrapod99 on yahwhew dot com (do fix the spelling, I am just trying to avoid robot trolls.

    Nice nautical reference in your reply @3. Somehow, I doubt you’ll be on any any reaches, broad, close, or otherwise in the Texas hill country.

    Good to know brother. Sounds like we have an alternate location for Rottfest for when the day finally gets here that Mrs. M’s place can’t be rebuilt and/or deloused and fumigated after our locust horde clears out.

    In all seriousness, I’m damned happy for you.

    Thug-ster! My, I have been away too long. I have something that will pep you up a bit. It’s like PROOF of GlowBull Wormening, only different. Better. This is my kind of Human Interest Story”. It’s from July, but still heartwarming.

    Barry Colvert, the FBI polygraph examiner who got Arthur Walker to confess to his part in one of the most damaging spy operations in American history, said today that he was a little saddened to hear that the man he helped put in prison had died there.

    Heartwarming. Well, it’ll be warm where he is going. (See, I told you there is proof of GlowBull Worming)

    Walker, 79, died Saturday, according to a Bureau of Prisons spokesman, serving the last months of his sentence in Butner, N.C. He was a retired Navy lieutenant living in Virginia Beach when he was arrested in 1985 and later sentenced to three life sentences, plus 40 years, for copying and conspiring to deliver secrets to the Soviet Union. Walker was one of four charged in the ring.

    Three life sentences plus 40 years. By my calculations he owes us two more life sentences and 40 years. Too bad he didn’t get a 21 gun salute on the way out. I wouldn’t have missed him. Not with both barrels anyway.

    See, I knew that would pep you up some.

    Hey, even Satan has standards. He’s going to give him to Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and LBJ to play with.
