A ThreeYear Goal

Yup, I am going to buckle down for once in my adult, or should I say semi-adult life, and set a goal, even though redneck through and through. I want a full-blown live off the grid camper for my truck! And part of this goal, is that I also have to invest a few grand in the truck too. I am proud of the fact that my primary mode of transportation will be 40 years young in 2014. In this day and age where your mechanic has a doctorate in engineering, and there is so much plastic on vehicles, that you can’t park it in direct sunlight for more than an hour, my 1974 Ford is mostly metal, and has nearly 460,000 thousand miles, and is paid for.

So, back to my goal, which I have to keep writing down because of my self diagnosed ADHD ( beer is the med of choice) I dream of traveling during my summers off. I don’t care if it is 30 miles to my favorite catfish hole, or 700 hundred miles to my other favorite catfish hole on the Colorado River in Arizona. I wanna know that if the country crashes, I can live off of the grid. Or more truthfully, I wanna sit outside of my camper, butt parked in the green and white striped lawn chair, Conway Twitty blasting, feet up on the cooler, tall cold one in hand, and dogs scratchin fleas like there is no tomorrow, and I am not working! This is my Heaven until Big J returns the second time to Earth to set things straight.

I think I can do this. What is it again?, that’s right, I remember now. 🙂

Working During Christmas Vacation Is For Suckers: Call Me A Sucker!

This is just craptastic. Two day in to vacation and I have to work the basket ball games tonight. Don’t get me wrong, I like the money, and the comp time. It allows me to coach golf during the spring, but just the fact I have to put a cramp in my “ME” time irks me. Yup, there are some upset coolies in the frig, and a bartender or three who will just have to wait til tomorrow in order to enjoy my company, and earn their tip. There are also about a dozen dozen range balls that will have to wait to be smacked around, and some weights and a tread mill that will go without my presence too. The cats and dogs will have to wait for their momma to scratch their bellies during this time.

Thing is, I miss “ME” time the most. It brings back all the winter, and summer breaks I enjoyed through out my college career. It is when I had my first legal beer, and where I also learned the fine art of napping. Oh well, looks as though my whining is over and I must go punch in. 😦
