And whatever else comes out.

It’s east to get lost in the day to day shuffle of the card deck we call life.

In order for me to keep all 52 card in my deck I need to take them out and inspect them for defects.

By writing this blog I keep the defects at bay. The Jokers seem to need the most inspection……but that is just how my deck happens to be stacked.

I have never been lucky enough to have been given a full house in this game, but the journey is more interesting than the destination.

Me, by the numbers:

I am
– Husband to 1
– Stepfather of 2
– Brother to 4
-Uncle to 6
– Sober since October, 13, 2006

Always based on a true story.

The names have been omitted to protect my backside.

Read. Enjoy. Like. Comment. Follow.

  1. Every now and then we need to pull out that Joker card, not wanting to quote Batman, but no one should ask you ‘why so serious?’
    Glad you have a place to unravel though.

    1. Sometimes finding humor in not humorous events is my only way of getting by. “Always Look OnThe Bright Side Of Life” by Monty Python seems to weasel its way into situations that I have trouble facing. Thank you for the comment!!

      1. Your welcome, and one thing I know is that everything passes, good and bad, so you need to have hope for some bright side after it all passes.
        :] take care

    2. Hi there, SoundEagle agrees with Janette, and is glad to be interacting with you here, and to have visited and read your “About” page.

      Happy October to both of you! SoundEagle would like to wish you an even more satisfying journey of blogging in the final quarter of 2013.

      SoundEagle hopes that you continue to do very well and find fulfillment in whatever you enjoy doing and savouring, especially through “Seeking truth…by using pennies in the ashtray.” Let’s vent and unravel to your heart’s content!

      It could also be Good2begonia, particularly at one of SoundEagle’s gardening and horticultural blogs at http://queenslandbegonia.wordpress.com.

  4. Thanks for the appreciations, Generic Brand. As for your about, I’m just impressed that you’re playing with a full deck. My cards tend to end up in unreadable places most of the time.

    1. Thank you for the kind words. I sincerely appreciate them. Your poetry creates quite the image in my mind while reading it. I look forward to reading more of it, as I am a new admirer of your craft!

  5. As one of my beloved followers, I would like to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude by sharing with you my exciting news of becoming a newly published author! And, of course, I wanted you to be among the very first to get a chance to read the rest of my debut novel, The Legacy of Blood, now available in e-book format.

    (No worries if you don’t have a Kindle or other e-reader device, they have free ones to download on your computer. I went on Amazon and downloaded their “Kindle for PC” absolutely free! Love it! Here’s the link if you need it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/kindle/pc/download .)

    Again, I want to thank you kindly for all the support. And you never know, as some of my followers have told me, you could say you’ve had a big hand in helping make Shelby Westland a household name! πŸ˜›

  6. I just clicked on your gravatar for the first time and got a look at the picture. Haha! I love Beaker. Anyway, you should probably link your blog to your gravatar. You know it’s not there, right? Comes in handy when someone is trying to get to your blog. πŸ™‚

  7. Hi there! I wanted to let you know I’ve nominated your fabulous blog for The Liebster Award! Please go here to get the details on what you need to do to accept your award. Congratulations!

    1. Stack up on clubs and spades, search for the largest heart and hopefully find a diamond in the rough. Jokers are easily confused when faced with a plethora of suits.

    1. I appreciate the nomination but I must decline. My laziness when it comes to these awards is epic. I would hate to accept and then do nothing. Thank you, though.
