Blogging to Keep Off Boogie Street

Good morning readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read.

I’m a bit out of sorts this morning.  That pic above was taken for the post about hats worn backward, but if I paused and had a look in the mirror it think it would be me again, minus the backward High Roller.  Hats You Can’t Wear Sideways or Backwards

The protracted computer fiasco put me fairly far behind on one of my projects, which I went a hundred miles an hour for a lot of hours yesterday playing catchup without getting there.  But I think doing it must have worn my mind down along the edges and frayed my thinking processes enough to have me wondering if I’m not getting old.

If I had a vehicle and enough slack in the budget I think I’d probably forget everything for a day and just go for a road trip for a day.  Try out my Texas Thumb and Finger Signs and let the projects, the chickens, and the cats fend for themselves long enough to get a recharge on my batteries.

But that’s not going to happen, and the project’s going fairly well once I reconstructed where my head was when I got distracted by computers.  The roosters are singing up Old Sol and I hear cats hissing at one another on the front porch, so all I have to do is wait until my head clears, kick start myself into motion.

I’ve been fighting off urges to write long written works lately, which I’m not going to do, and one of the ways I avoid doing it and push the urges back involves typing words on this blog.  Pressure release valve, more or less.

I appreciate the role you readers play in the process.  If you weren’t here I think I mightn’t write the blog, and find me sneaking up on myself writing a book instead.  A pure disaster.

Thanks, all of you, for coming by occasionally.

Gracias,

Old Jules

  1. Why would it be a disaster to write a book?
    You have a great way with words.

    • Morning granny1947. Thanks for coming by. I’m an obsessive personality and when I’m writing a book it becomes an obsession of a sort I prefer not to submerge myself in ever ever ever again if it can be avoided. I like to think I have more ‘important’ things to do with the remainder of my life. They don’t have to be particularly important, from my viewpoint, to be more important than that. Hitting my thumb with a hammer might qualify. Gracias, Jules

  2. Meh. Books = self discipline to dip in and dip out = major fail in my case, also being of the obsessive persuation! Equally, though fluent, computers can eat precious time too! You have my sympathies mate. Love the hat by the way: not enough Real hats worn here in the UK sadly…

    Keep writing!

  3. Take it easy!! And it is a pleasure to read what you post here. Keep it up!

  4. Hi Old Jules,
    Your posts are always very intersting and I enjoy reading them. Keep writing! That’s what I tell myself everyday, especially when it’s a particularly bad day, writing always cheers me up. Oh, and the UFO post was great!

  6. It sounds like you could use a change of scenery. I think it’s the time of year that has us chafing a little bit. I’d go somewhere for the day if I had any spare cash (is there ever such a thing?) just to blow the carbon out of the pipes.

    It’s nice to have a place to visit for some good, interesting reading. Thanks for having us in!

    • elroyjones: I think I could use it, but I’m glad I worked on the project today. Learned things I mightn’t have learned if I’d taken a break. Gracias, Jules

  7. I suppose it’s good fortune I don’t suffer from really long snags when I decide something has to be written. A handful of little chapters and the short story is enough. Still, I believe I know the feeling of getting lost to the world when it comes over me. Once you start letting that voice speak, it won’t shut up until it’s done.

  8. Oh, I don’t know, why not write the book? I sure do enjoy reading your posts.

    • Anonymous: Thanks. I tink I enjoy writing posts better than I’d enjoy writing a book. Also I enjoy you reading my posts better than I’d enjoy you not reading my book. I’ve written books and they’ve gone unread by almost everyone who reads this blog. But I’ve written the posts to this blog and they’ve been read by everyone who read them. Gracias, Jules

  9. Keep writing your blogs for sure. That way I know that mine is not the only strange one out there. If I lived closer, I would drop by and take you away for a day…somewhere? That is what gypsies do!

    • gypsybev: I think of mine as fairly ordinary, though a lot of others are strange. Maybe the overwhelming majority of the others, when I consider it. As for yours, it’s strange because my browser won’t bring it up. I’m obliged for your visit. Gracias, Jules

  10. Only you can decide what you should do, but even then, you don’t have to do it (grin).

  11. Oh, go ahead and give it a shot. Write the book. Sounds like you have one in you…

    • LCTC!: A book’s a lot of work, maybe as much as a year in the making if it’s a good one. I don’t have any years lying around waiting for something to fill them up at the moment. But if I stumble upon one that I’ve been overlooking I’ll consider your suggestion. Jules

  12. You can always start it, then burn it. 😉
