Wildwood Flower


This got my Sunday morning off to a good start. I don't have much to say here because I've been out and about in the real world. I'm going to start missing the money soon, but I don't miss my old job one little bit. Many people have said they've never seen me smile so much. I wasn't in a bad mood before, I was just too tired to work those face muscles. My health is improving. My blood sugar is essentially normal I'm losing weight. My breathing is better I haven't had anything like a real asthma attack in weeks. This is OK. I even got offered a part time job, driving a big rig to Portland and back a couple of times a month. I'm not sure about that one. I don't know if I feel like crucifying myself behind the wheel again. Then again, I could probably use the money and how many people are being offered jobs, unsolicited these days? I've got a few weeks to think about it.


I'm also being showered with ukuleles. Here I am with Gary Timmons number 001. A very successful prototype built by my friend Gary. What a jolly old bastard I'm becoming!

Blogger is weird again. I have no control over the font or the spacing of the letters.

Looking good! You look twenty years younger, man. Look at the gleam in your eye!

I like the sound of the Tenor Guitar. Thanks for the Wildwood Flower. Hmmm, maybe I'll trade in my 12 string.

Jolly is a good state for you to be in. Keep it up!

Wildwood Flower brought back memorys.. my dad used to play that all the time (guitar).

You do look happy... soon you will be so busy with your retired life you won't know how you ever found time to work.

What do you do now that you're retired? Take up chemical engineering and enjoy turning beer, wine, Scotch , and margaritas into urine.

@, I used up all of my drink tickets years ago. I pissed out more used beer than I would like to remember. I spent 25 years on that project and I'm retired from it too.

I remember having a picture of a nearly naked Lita Ford posing with a flying v guitar. Your pic w/ that ukulele is the second hottest picture I have ever seen.

There's no denying the unbridled virility of a man wielding a ukulele.

Hi Jon,

You've been on my mind all week. Just passing through to say hello.

Jon said...

Hi HD. I've been thinking about you too. I almost emailed you this week. I think I will. Talk to you soon.
