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.

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:

Congratulations on your good fortune! :em01:
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.

Indeed, the cockles of my heart are most warmed by that tidbit, Satan has a new toy to pleasure……

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