    Dancing in the streets

    My Brother in law from New Mexico swooped in last weekend and carted my mother in law off to live near him in New Mexico. She had worn out her welcome with the other 3 siblings and their family members in my neck of the woods.

    This means that I will never have to deal with her racist bigoted bullroar again

    My mother in law came out to visit one summer and stayed until she passed away 15 years later. Ice flow would've been to good for her.

    I did my wife a favor (something I do remind her of on occasion)---I took her out of Indiana---knowing full well Mom (and Dad) would never follow----600 + miles did the trick

    I have to say that my wife has remained eternally grateful

    I am the a-hole in my family
    "Back after 5 years. I thought you had died.

    Splitting my time between the montane and the mesas

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    I've heard that condition explained differently---something about the little head doing the thinking for the big head

    I'm the Black Sheep, Went the blue collar route when everyone else went white collar. But then again I did stuff that blows their urban couch potato Minds. Climbed High Mountains, 5000+ scuba dives, back packing Kayaking, Fire Fighting, saving peoples lives, having some die in my arms too. Nobody gives me any pushback anymore but then again I think I scare them a bit because I'm just a tad off in their minds...LOL
