Yep........ hello everyone........... Winter is draggin on and I'm glad to have been afforded the opportunity to visit and do some reading.......... All work and no play makes Killer a dull boy hardly fits of late cause I've been doing my share of effing around. Hey it's okay. The groundhog saw his shadow and we have winter till mid March so that's all the reason I need to make a game of life. I've found that being too serious about anything can be detrimental to a kid that loves to play with his toys........... Poetry? I'll leave that stuff to you guys/gals.......... I cannot for the life of me seem to manage inspiration with a pen to do much more than my banking..........

I can't complain though. Even though I've been busy at work I've managed to have a good time post Xmas. Did lose another phone to the swells of the Atlantic about eighty miles out from Hatteras a couple weeks ago........ That particular incident left a bad taste in my mouth to say the least. I've given two or three away in the last few years but this one was to the tune of about $700........ Didn't buy the insurance to replace the phone when the sales rep was doing her "Yatayata" about saving money should I lose it......... Yep sure. Like that'll happen............ And viola........ It did happen when I was trying to take a picture of a fish whilst me hands were wet and I was in 17'th century mariner mode......... Oh you didn't know I was a sailor in a past life. Yeah I was. And we didn't deal with cellular devices back then........... Just kind of an oddball thing to have in your hand while leaning over the side of a boat when waves crash....... The whole better the stupid phone go visit Davy Jones while I hang on thing...........

Anyway I could piss about things but I've really nothing to go on about........ Life is good. I'm about two weeks away from a brand new Harley........ One with all the toys. Nav and the whole ten yards. Yep cause other than a stereo I need something to take my eyes off the road and give cause to a poke or a pinch from my wife........ She gets nervous when I multitask on the scooter....... Hey if they didn't want you to play with it, they wouldn't put it on there.

Catch ya later folks.......

@Killerelite  Good to hear from you again! I think winter has zapped everyone of inspiration lately, but I bet you could do some awesome poems about being a sailor in a past life or Davey Jones :)  

Sorry about the one that got away-both the fish and the phone. 

-but the Harley sounds pretty impressive. I like your reasoning at the end. 

Good luck and good writes!

I've never lost or broke a phone. Lucky I guess. I use older models and they a pretty tough. The backpack gets in the way sometimes but its worth it.

@SerenaLantha there was no one that got away in so far as the fish were concerned. It's in the freezer.............. My priorities are straight...... Just my Samsung Note went to that idiom old mariners dubbed Davy Jones' Locker........... I'd like to think a Great White now has the capacity to stay in touch with friends via Samsung technology.......... Maybe one with a conscious will call and wish to return my phone..............

@Forgewright that notion kind of sickens me......... I go through cell phones........ Leave em lay and lose em......... break em........ Drop em in the Atlantic...........Even threw one in a stream when it sounded off at an inopportune moment. Sad part is that I carry two phones. One for work and a personal phone. I always seem to manage giving my own away............. Go figure.

@craigb12 part of my Hogwarts school itinerary is to be more involved in things.......... Past and present............. Going door to door to Thoughtsinc members with a questionnaire is on my itinerary. Wolverhampton England is on the list mate........

All together Now....(Score from ten little Indians)

 

Oh a boat and a fish and a phone went sailin'

a boat and a fish and a phone went sailin'

a boat and a fish and a phone went sailin'

That's what you get for having personal possessions and not living off the land as god intended.

 

( That last line needs some work...) Should of said Wah wahhhhh  wah wahhhh wahhhh

Thanks Bud........ I miss the 35mm days. I never lost a camera. Taking a picture of a fish needs to be done while they're in the water. Tuna change color after they've been gaffed and dragged on to a boat and have a fading look to them.........

Cell phones....... Do you remember when cell phones became popular and affordable? They were cumbersome things that you had to carry in their own bag....... Then they became tiny little things that you could put in your shirt pocket......... Now they are becoming huge again in an advanced sort of way....... When I got rid of my Iphone I opted for the biggest screen I could find on a phone because........ well because my eagle eyes need reading glasses and I hate wearing them.

Reading your little ditty has cut me deeply my friend...... Made me in fact realize that no cell phone need make the trip from Hatteras in the future. My Canon will come along and I will take pictures to be thrown in a box with hundreds of others I have taken from events in my life....... I will threaten to have the pictures put on disc but never will........ When I die my grandchildren can root through the pictures and say how cool they are and question why I used an old 35 mm camera........ At the bottom of the box they'll find a note detailing a timeline of me trying to be one with technology and failing miserably along with a copy of this web page....... They'll then take pity on me and say "Poor Pap."

BTW @Forgewright the last line is properly redundant enough to work in this case....... Still waiting on a call from Jaws to return my phone.
