My career has taken me to work in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, Washington, Miami, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Lexington.

That is the main reason that my retirement community will be "My Old Kentucky Home" (shack with my chickens and dog) and not some old folks condo in Florida. LOL

While I don't live in my childhood home I do live on the family property! My dad moved here when he was about 4 months old. My greatgrandfather spent his remaining years here, sharing a bedroom with my dad. Now I'm here with my youngest child and my grandchildren. I'm trying to instill a love of the country and a feeling of family connection into my grandchildren and maybe they will carry on. It's a lot to ask. I point out that good careers are can be had within driving distance( we aren't farmers) but I guess I can't expect them to do that. After all, I didn't. I'm like an old elephant... Returning home to die...sigh

I have not only returned to my childhood home, but also to my roots since my ancestors have mainly lived within a 15 mile radius of this general area since 1780. That is about as close a connection as I can make. LOL I have traced my roots and found that many of my ancestors have lived, married, and died very close by. It pleases me to walk on the same grounds that some trod on over 200 years ago.

So, AW, I ask, are we both hampered down with the past? I LIKE having the memories around me. The land, the same neighbor families my grandparents had, the old pieces of furniture. The pics. Some would say I'm living in the past and I need to live in the present. I've worked about 4 hours on the mowing Etc and believe me, thats living in the present!!! Lol

Anne, I know, what you mean about others and their opinions. I have been told to my face that I am such a good parent and person . Then find out later that same person tells another I'm not doing enough. Rubbish. I never tell others how to live unless someone wants my honest input. You are right that cutting grass is a future deal. So, if any remarks are made again say, Hmm well I'm presently planning for the future, like your that spry young thing again. Hehehe. I have so much negativity to deal with at times; it feels as if I need a spiritual quest. Others create so much havic in our lives. As for me I just want to be happy and drunk on life. You enlighten my days with each story you share; it takes me away from this rundown place with so little space to live. And the shattering loneliness. Thank you for those stories of your pond and life. I, for one, am delighted to hear them.
Ignore those clamoring voices of others who are disapproving, it has always been your life and your happiness that exists. That is all that matters;)

No, I don't think we are hampered at all. It is merely honoring the contributions those that went before us have made so that we can better enjoy the present and look forward to the future and hope that we are so honored as well. In fact, I will be making my presence later this evening in the company of those people that appreciate the fact that this old man is still above ground and has eggs and sweet corn to distribute.

When they say "It is good to see you", my reply is usually "It is good to see and be seen". LOL and if they say "GOD Bless you". My usual reply is "HE already has". Have a good evening,

Thank you for your kind words and I'm certainly glad you enjoy my little crazy stories.
I am alone a lot and a lot of times I am lonely. Then I have also been lonely in a crowd of people.
In the last year or so I've had the chance to meet new people and renew old acquaintances. Lots of times it works out great and its always interesting. Lol. Sometimes my dock time is perfect alone time ...

I don't think we can live in the present without embracing our past. We are a collection of our past experiences and I too love to surround myself with things that remind me that I am part of something bigger-- my ancestors, my family, my God.
Enjoy those country homes-- wish I was in the woods!

FATE! and coincidence... It has been so long since I logged on and read, let alone posted. So here I come and before I type and get my post up there's Miss E. Miss E we have been so hostile with one another in the past it just tickles the old funny bone no end to read your post about embracing the past. Why? Because I don't find a lot embracable about my past, way clear back to smack waaaaaaaaa!!! congratulations it's a boy.

And that is the very reason I value your post above!

OH! And Hi Miss E! Hope You are having a blessed day also

Yes but if you changed one single thing from your past (good or bad). It would alter who you are. Have you ever read the book "Five people you meet in Heaven"? One day you will see that even the bad parts are valuable to who you are. I took a three month break but I'm back--- take care

Miss E, I kind of cracked up at the post because here I am working on letting go of much of the past, and reading you embracing the past. Posting about the same time. Ideally embracing ones past speaks volumes of ones attitude concerning how they conducted LIFE. That's another beautiful thing.

Lately I have been regretting everything I wasted through the past years. But I'm alive and well. I'll just have to embrace that for the time being one day at a time. Looking forward to tommorrow.

Oh don't get me wrong-- to be at peace you have to learn to let the guilt, regret, anger go. But the experience will always be a part of you. Maybe we posted at the same time because we both needed to remember to find a balance between the letting go and the embracing

The part about giving away eggs and sweet corn was a strong clue that it was you, AW. Lol hope they appreciated the gift! My neighbor gave me some garden goodies earlier. We started on the watermelon ASAP. Yes!!
Blue miner and Miss E. good to have you guys back. Haven't heard a peep from either of you lately!
Where's Marilyn?-- the latest newcomer...
Just got home from the neighbors (my dads childhood friend) he just recently returned from Ireland--lucky guy--and we listened to some Irish drinking songs and looked at lots of pics. A good time and building good memories.

I'm still getting info. about increasing the size of unmentionables when I don't have any. LMAO. A fine Gentleman you are;) wonder where Abeliever and Betty have gone?
