    no kidding this is me

    Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. – Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests: I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full. So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the garbage first. But then I think, since I’m going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first. I take my check book off the table, and see that there is only one check left. My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Pepsi I’d been drinking. I’m going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Pepsi aside so that I don’t accidentally knock it over. The Pepsi is getting warm, and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye–they need water. I put the Pepsi on the counter and discover my reading glasses that I’ve been searching for all morning. I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I’m going to water the flowers. I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table. I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I’ll be looking for the remote, but I won’t remember that it’s on the kitchen table, so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I’ll water the flowers. I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor. So, I set the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill. Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do. At the end of the day: the car isn’t washed the bills aren’t paid there is a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter the flowers don’t have enough water, there is still only 1 check in my check book, I can’t find the remote, I can’t find my glasses, and I don’t remember what I did with the car keys. Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I’m really baffled because I know I was busy all the damn day, and I’m really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I’ll try to get some help for it, but first I’ll check my e-mail…. Don’t laugh — if this isn’t you yet, your day is coming

    Aquarium woes

    Today discovered the heater in my fish aquarium went wild,. So the water heated up. Discovered when I went to feed them,. Of course they have been boiled alive poor things. So now the task of cleaning it all out starts. Think the tank may be used for something else now

    Been missing a whilei

    I have been absent from the board in a long while,. I just want to thank the well wishers thanks. I am still not right yet, but have had some medical issues that have prevented me from doing the things I wanted to do. These issues led to a bad depression, which is now being treated. I won't bore you with the rest of the problems, let it suffice the E34 has not been touched and to be honest may be a while before she gets completed. But it in all this thanks again to those who sent thoughts out to me

    There are two brothers, aged four and six.The six year old says "You know, it's about time we started to swear."The four year old says "OK." The six year old says "From now on I'll say 'hell' and you say 'ass.'" The four year old says "OK." So they go downstairs and their mother says "What would you boys like for breakfast?" The six year old says "Oh what the hell, I'll have corn flakes." WHACK! The kid goes flying across the room. The mother turns to the four year old and asks "And what would YOU like for breakfast?" The four year old says "I don't know, but you can bet your ass it's not corn flakes."

    Fustrating day

    Today is not just going to be my day, weather was right was going to put some work in on the car hopefully getting the front dash finished, The problem I cannot find my keys anywhere in the house. Looked everywhere no darn keys. took the spare fob to unlock the car and switch the alarm off battery is to low to open the catr, So now instead have to see if cotsolds can provide a ne key, plus change the locks on the house front door as well. Not a happy camper at all
