I really do neglect this blog. I am keeping my journal up but this blog… Currently listening to The Sex Pistols – Never Mind the Bollocks album as I typed this.
Maybe I should start reviewing comic books I get every month?
Perhaps I comment on the state of society here in the United States? That’s always a fun one. I could comment for days on our current President and his lack of mental faculties. Some of the things that come out of his mouth… Sadly, my father-in-law has been recently diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer and I think he is more cognizant of his reality than Biden is. Oops, see what I did there? I made a sneaky political comment.
I know, I can post my progress on my current weight loss plan. At one point years ago I was doing this program called Omada or something like that. Not this time. Met with an orthopedic surgeon and he said I need to have hip surgery (it sucks getting old folks) and before that can happen I need to lose some weight. I literally have NO cartilage in both my hips. It’s bone on bone. Been that way for awhile. One hip hurts when I over exert myself, like walking more that 50 yards. The other hip is fine. Anyway, back to the diet. I’m on a low carbs, low sugar diet now. I’m 1 1/2 weeks into it and I have lost 4 maybe 5 lbs. The true sign will be next Monday’s weigh in. It’s essentially an Atkins diet, although I have found low carb bread so that helps. I guess I could post that progress.
I have two “books” in the works. My fiction book, that is outlined up to the Midpoint with some scenes in Act III as well, has taken a backseat to a memoir. I’ve been boning up on memoir writing and I have two times in my life that I think would make good memoirs. So I have been focused on gathering data like old papers, files and pictures from one of those times of my life. I think I have a good premise. Perhaps I will share when I get it more organized. I need to quit watching YouTube and sit my ass down and write.
Work sucks my soul out so when I get home I just have no motivation. HOWEVER, 20 more months until retirement. Maybe only 8 if I get fed up with this job.
You could write a personal essay using No Feelings as a writer’s prompt. I thought I was the only one in the world who still listened to the pistols.

Yep I bought the original vinyl when it came out in the US but sadly, when I bought the CD, I sold it thinking vinyl was dead. I replaced that vinyl with a new reissue last year. And I found a YouTube version I pull up at work occasionally.
