Thought For The Day Thursday

I want to live my next life backwards:
You start out dead and get that out of the way.
Then you wake up in an old age home feeling better every day.
Then you get kicked out for being too healthy.
Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension.
Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day.
You work 40 years until you're too young to work.
You get ready for High School: drink alcohol, party, and you're generally promiscuous.
Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, and you have no responsibilities.
Then you become a baby, and then...

You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully in luxury, in spa-like conditions -- central heating, room service on tap, and ...

You finish off as an orgasm.I rest my case.

De Ja Vu......

It was only four years ago when the fires in California were blazing like they are now & we were evacuated from our home.

One minute we were watching the fire whipping through the foothills behind us, the next minute we were in the house trying to pack anything & everyhting that we could, to take with us. It's an experience I never want to have to go through again. We were fortunate enough to only suffer minor damage to our yard, thanks to some quick thinking neighbors, who were adamant about staying behind. Others on our street weren't so lucky.
I believe there were 7 homes lost in all on our street alone. But just up & around the corner there were whole neighborhoods that were lost.
We have family & friends that are being effected by the fires that are blazing. My brother Darren,
is a Betallion Chief with the California Department of Forestry & is out there like many others, doing what he can to help. I often worry about Darren being on the "frontlines", but he is doing what he loves & has always wanted to do. From the time we were little, I can remember him wanting to be a firefighter! He has now been living his dream for 20 plus years & is GOOD at what he does!!! So I just try & keep that in mind at times like these. We also have some lifelong family friends that are being effected by the fires burning in Lake Arrowhead.
My heart goes out to ALL those effected by the fires. You are most definitely in our thoughts & prayers!!!!

Okay, okay already!!! I know, I know!!!! I've been a baaaaaad slaaaaaacccckkker Southern Fried Chicky. I can go into the long drawn out explanation as of to why I haven't been a bloggin' like I should, but that would just take too long!!! So let's just chalk it up to it being that time of year......holidays, the girls birthday, the school fall festivities, still trying to make our house a home.....just been busy folks!!! But seeing as how it's the beginning of a new week, I thought I'd give it a shot to try & start the week out on the right foot, so to speak! (This does count as a post right?)
