Scenes From The Road

Finally, a chance for some rest.  It has been one frickin hell of a winter!  Snowfall has been abundant as all get go, blizzards have it seems like a weekly occurrence at times, frigid cold temps and wind chills for weeks on end, work in general has had me slammed to the wall with every kind of emergency service call you could think of at virtually every hour of the day, plowing snow continually sometimes for days on end and rolling right into the next storm with little sleep.  And amazingly, through all of just keeps gettin better! 

But even Superman needs a break from saving the world once in a while!

Why you haven't heard from me in a while?  Sure, yes, I have been busy and unable to focus time to writing.  But there is also another element entwined in my cone of silence.  Disgust.  Just plain old disgust.  Either this wonderful God blesssed place in which we live, truly the 'last frontier', has changed me to the point that I just don't see things nor tolerate that which bitters my taste anymore.  Or, I have just gotten older and wiser.....or both!  But, I am just fed up with much of where I see this country going, and disgusted with those who think that bending liberty over the fence in the name of logic, is a righteous and justifiable act!  You will get yours ya jack bastards!

In the best interest of maintaining poise, and keeping my blood pressure at a manageable level, I have chosen to remain silent and quietly work behind the scenes, supporting those organizations I firmly believe in and the preservation of our American rights & liberties, keeping watch over the values that I firmly believe in, my friends and relatives have died for, and will not lay down willingly upon the whims of idiots! 

Ignorance is curable....but stupid is forever!  Wake up people!  Pull your heads out of your Facebook's and the rest of the distractions that have you lulled into a sense of false security and complete and utter oblivion!  Before you wake up one day and find that you lost it all, including the right to say "no" about any of what you'll be fed.  What you believed in will no longer matter and your all gonna be wondering what the hell happened while you were sleeping away your freedom!

That said, hope you enjoy some of the perks we have provided of being on the road for a couple days of rest. In the mean time, we are grateful for our move almost 5 years ago, and would still never even consider regretting it.  The things we have done, the things we have seen, the opportunities that we have experienced here.  We are so much better off and life, despite how busy we get, is so much better and enriched for us.  We are finally able to achieve some of the goals we never had a chance with, in all the years we lived in Looneyland!  Miss you friends and family, truly do.  Just happier as individuals where we are now and thankful for all it represents in the fiber that we are.

Great photos!

I sense your frustrations where your country is concerned, I feel the same (about the direction our Govt is taking ours). Pretty difficult to keep the blood pressure at bay when things like that go on. At least you shared some lovely photos, thanks for that!

Susan, I truly appreciate your comment. When you go so long without posting you wonder if anyone is even around anymore! And in that, I guess I have needed a break from writing to find my head. I don't follow much about Canada however have been learning a lot as of late. I don't know anymore. Glad you enjoyed the pics! Thanks for stopping by.
