Looking Back On A Weird Year..

¬†¬†Here we are at the end of another year so I guess it is time for some reflections on life. ¬†Tomorrow’s post will be looking forward but let’s look back on this one. To say the least it has been a very interesting year. Healthwise it has been a good one for both my wife and me as we had no major health events and … Continue reading Looking Back On A Weird Year..

One Person, One Vote.. It Ain’t Happening..

Sometimes I wonder why I even bother to vote for president in my State of Indiana. ¬†In my thirteen times voting, only twice has my vote actually counted. Now that the lines are much longer than they used to be why even bother? Of course we all know that the elections of 2000 and 2016 the person who got less votes became president. That has … Continue reading One Person, One Vote.. It Ain’t Happening..

I Am Just Not a “Niche” Guy…

¬†¬†For my weekly bio post I thought I would talk a little about my blogging processes in particular but more generally¬†about my thought processes which due to Aspergers is probably different than yours. Many of the more successful blogs around the Internet are niche blogs, that is they concentrate on one particular topic. Many that I read are of the retirement genre. Their readers pretty … Continue reading I Am Just Not a “Niche” Guy…

Is Sears and their similar competitors facing extinction here in the beginnings of the 21st … Continue reading The Death Watch For Another Brick and Mortar Establishment…

Pictures From The Past..

One of my hobbies (yeah I have many) is to take photos of group pictures from past generations I find in my travels and elsewhere. This one is from the Indiana Historical Society publication.

A Larger View

The right side middle picture was taken in 1916. I enjoy zooming in on these type pictures and trying to imagine what one person’s life in that group was like. Continue reading “Pictures From The Past..”

About Dreaming…

TL Banner¬†¬†I know the image of an old person is generally not linked to a dreamer but that is just what I am. Many think old people are just supposed to “sit back and watch”, their dream days are behind them. To that I say poppycock…. ūüôā

Dreaming is a lifelong process that never ends. My earliest dreams were to try to touch the sky. For some reason I have always been attracted to looking up. Even as a very young boy in the early 1950s¬† I could be found lying in the grass on a summer night looking up at the stars and dreaming about them and what the future might hold for me.

Antique Tractors…

ISOA Banner  I spent a couple of summers during high school as a farm hand. A lot of it was putting up hay but some was helping with the planting and harvesting.  I hate to admit it but some of these antique tractors were the same models that I drove during those years.

Everything is being automated now. Even the tractors are beginning to be driven by GPS enabled robots. Less then 1% of us are now working the land. Its good to look back on the past to see where we have been. ¬†I enjoy the continuing tractor shows here in the Midwest. Continue reading “Antique Tractors…”
