so, it took MONTHs to figure out, but i finally did it this photo was taken back in April when i took the church's hike group to Tent Rocks Marsha, Lil Miss Madison & I brought up the rear it ended up just being us for the remainder of the hike my intentions were to hike a lot with Sugar Plum during the summer for my conditioning for the trip it hasn't happened Marsha & i haven't even been doing our usual hiking on the weekends she got a boyfriend and has been busy with him among other things but anyways, i've been wanting to share this photo since april my new copier doesn't scan the photos like my old one did now i ask WHY did i get a new copier? anyways, i just figured out via my myspace account how to load this onto here and it be big enough to see....i did stop at Best Buy today to check out Adobe Photo Shop for my computer won't buy it anytime soon, but think i'll give it a try by the end of the year right now ALL funds go to the Grand Canyon...lol until laterz.....

Like what you do.
so, like before and after workin' at Jen's office today, i went window shopping again for backpacks and other equipment for my trip of course i'm lookin for the bargain hoping to not buy everything at my favorite store=REI so i went to my favorite store second there a guy helped in fitting me for a backpack boy did i get an education on backpacks how they fit =at the hips and shoulders how snug they're suppose to be once packed making it so compacted that nothing moves around all over the place all those extra straps are for something he fitted two different ones for me $50 difference in price he also packed each one so that they were 30lbs or more and i wore them 10mins each around the store i didn't know backpacks were to fit soooo good i decided on one, then went back to the more economical sports store the backpacks didn't fit, even after i adjusted them as much as i could but hey, i came home and checked out the two packs i had picked up at yard sales for nothing one i immediately realized won't work at all the other fit perfectly it just needed some straps, which i picked up at REI (my main purpose to go there today) so i have a pack! but may splurge for the new one because they have a place for a camel pack water bag to go inside them which carries 2liters (i need twice that amount of water to carry into the canyon)...so anyways, my friend Maggie may have some boots i can have (if she can find them) if i get the boots from Maggie i may go ahead with the purchase of a new pack otherwise, i'm investing big bucks ($140) for new boots although i did find some good boots at the sports store, they're too light weight for backpacking i need a medium weight in order to balance so right now, i've saved me $200-250 on a backpack by using the one i have i'm ecstatic about that especially since finding out last nite that there's a possibility that George won't be going with me on the trip he may get a job (which at the moment he doesn't have one) so it's waiting to see IF he gets the job & IF they let him have the time off to do this i'm going regardless although my friend Marsha is trying to talk me out of going alone ok i'm weird i do things alone i have for a loooooong time i know i can handle it besides there will be plenty of people on the trails besides park rangers i'm sure i'll be fine! this is my birthday present to me gotta make the big 5-0 something special!!!!!!!!

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.-Alan Cohen
finally, sum photos of my own again i took these today at my former boss' house i go there 4x a week to water her lawn (she has two houses, this one is 4 sale) anyways, the flowers finally bloomed this month with all the rain they're absolutely beautiful the wind was blowin' enough to move the flowers a couple of these photos are slightly out of focus because the wind but i like the way these pics turned out i definitely can use a few of them for my note kards ...did i tell you i made note kards out of sum of my photography i'm selling them at our church's bookstore if they sell well, i kan keep stocking them anyways, i'm excited...
anyways, the rest of the day was spent running around doin' other errands in the process i finally got a spare set of keys made for my motorcycle the key guy looked familiar to me but i couldn't place him finally i started asking him questions and we discovered that he was the batting coach on a softball team i played on about 17yrs or so ago wow! i didn't realize it had been that long ago since seriously playing ball although i played a couple times since then, it was only for socializing and fun 17yrs ago was the last time i was seriously competitive...God how much i've changed since then whew!!!
anyways, after errands, i came home for a much needed nap it was a late nap, which means i'll be awake for awhile that's ok, i've got to fold that darn laundry and wash another load i get to sleep in manana if need be It's all good!
Sunday, July 27, 2008
so, have you played it? i just learned how a few weeks ago the young adults i knew at the mall taught me how so i go get an "easy" puzzle book i'm still struggling thru sum of them.....lol but it's a great relaxer when i need it been doing at least one puzzle a day pick it up to take your mind off things no nonsense fun!
good mornin it's only 6hrs later than when i went to bed last nite since beginning the new job, i don't sleep in as much but it's just as well this morn because i just got a call here from the assistant manager to come work earlier today than scheduled Oi!!! my body hasn't adjusted yet to workin' 8hr shifts again and being on my feet all the time too goodness, i hope this helps shape me for my trip It's all good....
so anyways, yesterday i got the above photos in the mail they're Jorje's two youngest kids Roury (top picture) is 22 months his sister Rylei is 6 1/2months old they're soooo cute i just adopted Jorje's kids (she has 4) as my grandbabies i know i know they're really my great nephews and niece but i could use sum grandbabies besides Jorje is disowning her mother, my sister it seems Jorje and i have become pretty close these past several months by all our phone calls and online chatting we communicate at least 3-4times a week she's my oldest niece and she's finally wising up with the family i just hope i can guide her through it all, although she handles it pretty damn good herself i went thru my own "divorcing" of the family, most of them anyways, a long time ago now they don't bother me so much and what they do still like to kick their asses sometimes, but hey i'm saving my knuckles...anyways, i adopted Jorje as my own daughter she calls me Mama K It is good anyways, i wanted to share the babies pics i must go see them as soon as possible i'll try next year sometime although i have my trip to Washington state planned as well maybe i'll win the lottery by then and can do both trips.....lol It's all good!

alas, i finally beat the bank ok maybe not beat it, but i finally got the close out right and yes Jude you're right, the mgr does straighten it all out the next day and it balances itself out of a more important concern is S.I.D. not sure what that stands for, but they're the ones that go around to different places and do sting operations of people selling alcohol to minors they're out in force every weekend i think, if not every day ok i understand the need to enforce the laws, but i wonder if they're going after the wrong people i'm thinking they should spend more time on catching the drunk drivers anyways, i'm beginning to feel like i'm working for the govt or something with S.I.D. hanging over us ALL the time i wanted to retire, not do govt work again i'm enjoying the people i'm working with, but these sting operations are too much maybe i should look for some other line of work like back at the mall or something i'll sleep on it....
in the meantime, i got to spend a little time with Marsha & Lil Miss Madison today we went to breakfast then off to Lowe's for sum lumber Madison behaved pretty good for the most part we manage to contain her in both places she's gettin' busier by the moment as she's growing in a few months she'll be 2 i'm prayin' she doesn't have too much of the terrible twos....lol i know i can keep on dreamin on that one anyways, Madison was the highlight of my day...now the highlight of my night will be my pillow it's already calling me....

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
today was a mixed day from sad to joy to joy i learned first thing this morn that someone i knew at church took her life a couple days ago deep empathy my friend i know you are at peace now and on to a better life now i know not the circumstances surrounding all this, but i had only spoken with her last week much anguish i feel but i must remember life goes on despite our departure the sun still rises, children continue to play, the wind blows endlessly and we press on with our living you are loved my friend you are already missed....
alas after lunch, i strode over to the Coronado mall, the other mall that i didn't work in, but sits closer to me in proximity to my hovel there a woman grabbed my hand and persisted on pampering me a bit this skin care stand are those also from Israel she knows Rafeal, the young man who i worked next to me at the mall (Cottonwood Mall) she told me he's coming back in October right now he's at the University going to school, if i understood her english correctly a bright spot in my day to know how he is doing AND that he's returing here in ABQ in October i'll be ecstatic to see him i think of him often although we have not been in touch since he left last January i just came across his pic on my desk a few days ago i'm anxious for his return...
then i was off to REI (Recreational Equipment Inc.) it's a big outdoor outlet out here in the west at least i went window shoppin' for a new backpack, hiking boots, stove and other stuff for our Grand Canyon trip i'll be shopping there soon for new boots, then the other supplies laterz well the good news is the sales rep i spoke to happens to do the Grand Canyon trail we're going on at least twice a year he gave me sum great info on the trails and which one was shorter in distance to the bottom in addition he reminded today that there's another camp ground on the way back out of the canyon in which we could split the hike out in two (i just learned about it yesterday) sooooo....i called the Grand Canyon info office and see if we could switch our permit for the second night he also told me more about the two trails down into the canyon i sent an email to George my hiking buddy who's going with me and i also left him a message on his phone i really like the idea of breaking the hike out in two we're just starting to get back into conditioning for the adventure since this is our first trip down, it may be better to split the trail but there are other trails to hike while we're actually in the canyon for a day so right now i'm anxiously waiting for george to call me
Life is so fragile sometimes one's passing is a reminder to appreciate the moment right NOW....God bless!
Tuesday, July 22, 2008
so....tonite was the last nite workin' at the mall i said my good-byes, but will see them again no love lost happy to move on although it was the boss' attitudes as to why i left, it still don't feel good when one thinks ill of you for no good reason but alas, i'm out of there now at a place i feel welcomed and appreciated Life is about Change, but sometimes i like a stabilizer so the new job will be the staple come september there will be school and maybe another class at church if i don't take the class at church, i'm gettin' back to my guitar lessons once and for all thought maybe it'd be better in the fall to start the lessons since spring time i get so antsy with the warm weather coming anew fall is the time to settle in for the winter cozy up to a fire and a book this time i'll cozy up to the guitar if i so choose...but for now the most immediate adventure is back to conditioning for my Grand Canyon hike the national park sent me a video on how to prepare for the trek most i knew, but did pick up a few tidbits that will be helpful for our trip tomorrow i'll begin hiking again the Cibola National Forest is back open again it's been closed almost the entire month of july due to fire danger but with plenty of rain for the past couple weeks, i now can venture on the trails again i also borrowed a friend's bicycle and i'll begin on it tomorrow to build hopefully my knees as well as my cardio i'm also intent on losing some weight before November rolls around i'll shoot for 10lbs and be happy with that may take awhile longer for the 20lbs i gained over the last 2 1/2 yrs since retiring from the p.o. i had no idea i kept soooo much weight off while i was walking 10mi a day or more delivering the mail i can lose that weight again it may take longer, but i'll get there once the Grand Canyon trip is over, i'll buy my own mountain bike to stay in shape during the winter months when trails are muddy ilove to exercise anyways just been resting my body since retiring...lol anyways, Life is Good...which reminds me, i have one of those Life is Good t-shirts on the way and it has a jeep on it anyways, i'm finally ready for more down time again and gettin' into shape all month i've been working both jobs which has minimized leisure time the pace has been good, but not sure i can keep it up besides, my doc wood prefer i only work about 15hrs a week i'll be back to that after this week anyways, i'm chillin now i get tomorrow off looking forward to the play time like these dogs in the above photo and soon, i'll be off taking my own photos again in the meantime, i'm headed over to the church tomorrow to set up the selling of my note kards from my photos i'm anxious to see how they sell, although i don't expect much until september/october sometime when everyone starts going to church again right now it's summer time and as usual attendance is low Change is in the air, and it's all good!

so, it's 11pm saturday nite day after a full moon i haven't been home long from the new job..soon it'll be just the job....i screwed up the count on the register tonite, but right now i don't care lesson learned it would have been better to have waited for the graveyard person, but i was anxious to leave and she was late thinking the other new woman knew how to close out the "bank", i started the process and did it wrong o well, will get it right the next time it was only my second time on the "bank" register one covers the vault and i was on it tonite anyways, the assistant manager will straighten out the paper work in the morn, or so i was told i just don't like doing that i like to know how to do it and do it right o well, i'll call Jess the assistant tomorrow or wait til i work with her again on wednesday nite i've learned that there's no going home early on the afternoon shift the graveyard people come in at the last minute or late gotta get used to it i've been spoiled by the mall and leaving on time, all the time not at the new job o well, life goes on.....
anyways, so i came home and have been winding down on the computer went thru the deviantart website and found the above photo it's called Dark Places by *gmesh anyways, i was expecting tonite at work to be busy as hell, but totally the opposite there was a thunderstorm this afternoon and i guess it scared everyone away lightening struck twice near the store and all electrical went out both times that was the highlight of the shift really gray clouds remained for the rest of the day and the above photo best depicts how i feel at the moment but alas, feelings are only temporary and this too will pass it's all an adventure for more growth and expansion whether we want it or not actually down deep i feel pretty good, there's just this dreary feeling lingering after today's weather...think i'll have a bowl of cereal and see if i can get to sleep if not, maybe there's something on tv for awhile i had a Monster Energy drink at work this evening last time i did that, i was awake for quite awhile but tomorrow i don't have to be anywhere, so i can sleep as late as need be...until another day...

this is from David Cramer's Photography, http://www.davidcramer.com/blog/?cat=25, he is the local photographer whose website i stumbled upon while searchin' for Bosque del Apache website he has sum wonderful photos there this particular photo i chose to talk about a PBS show i saw last nite it was about wild mustangs up in Colorado they were beautiful the story followed a horse the filmmaker called Cloud from his birth til 5yrs later it was a beautiful film but with sum harsh realities in it thunderstorms & lightnening killing sum horses but what was shocking to me and the filmmaker was the killing of a foal within hours after its birth it couldnt get up and walk no matter how often it tried it couldn't go anywhere so do they let it die a slow death, or kill it as it did i think it was the lead stallion that killed it harsh realities like these are sometimes why i steer away from nature shows but then again i compared it to our harsh realities we live in harsh realities ourselves and it truly is the survival of the fittest we have violence, hunger and war to deal with in our lives besides the power of nature's wrath at times but i reminded myself that death is only of the body the Spirit always lives, never dies the flesh returns to the earth as the Spirit of the animal, or man, moves on to another life this Life is truly an adventure not to be lived in fear i've been reminded lately from friends and my doctor about whether my new job is safe maybe it's not as safe as other places, but i still feel it's as safe as anywhere else in life this body of mine could be hushed thru other means, at anytime i desire to live with NO FEAR!!! i believe in facing one's fears and mastering all fears although i fear at times still death, i will live my life fully one day it will be a no thing and i'll know i am forever..

quotes, i got a link from Indigo for quotes i came across Emerson just last nite the above quote apparently was inaccurately credited to Emerson but whoever said, definitely sum words of the wise i like Emerson and am ready to read more of his works i was introduced to him thru our church and his works inspired our founder of religous science=Science of Mind he was only 1 of 3 inspirations, but i think i like him most...anyways, this morn i'm annoyed a trite bit, but i will overcome my first paycheck with the new job is suppose to be in, but it's not there so i'm feelin' like it's a raining day, which we've been expecting for a few days now i hope the sun comes out today and brings a smile to my face just as i thought things were on a roll, i come to a stop sign so i'll pause for a moment and continue forward Life is an adventure and there are bumps on the road it's still all worth it...
p.s. Indigo's journal is ravens-lament who has been giving me links to graphics, lyrics and quotes she has a great journal check it out @ http://journals.aol.com/rdautumnsage/ravens-lament, if u haven't done so already...

George Carlin on aging!
IF YOU DON'T READ THIS TO THE VERY END, YOU HAVE LOST A DAY IN YOUR LIFE.
AND WHEN YOU HAVE FINISHED, DO AS I AM DOING AND SEND IT ON.
George Carlin's Views on Aging
Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is
when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about
aging that you think in fractions.
'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a
half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.
You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next
number, or even a few ahead.
'How old are you?' 'I'm gonna be 16!' You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna
be 16! And then the greatest day of your life! You become 21. Even the words
sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad
milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a
sour-dumpling.. What's wrong? What's changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes,
it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are
But! Wait!! ! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would!
So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, and REACH 50 and make it to 60.
You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day
thing; you HIT Wednesday!
You get into! your 80's and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch;
you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s,
you start going backwards; 'I Was JUST 92.'
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little
kid again. 'I'm 100 and a half!'
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!
HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let
the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them.'
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. ! Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the
devil's workshop.' And the devil's family name is Alzheimer's.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is
with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable,
improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips.. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next
county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away.
And if you don't send this to at least 8 people - who cares? But do share
this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!
Life's journey is not to
arrive at the grave safely
in a well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways,
totally worn out, shouting
"...holy sh*t ...what a ride!"

i got this clip from a site given to me by Raven Laments this wood be me every mornin with my java even in the summer i'll post the website in a sec.....so anyways, i'm just chillin today had lunch with Stephen and borrowed his bicycle so i can start gettin' back in shape for the Grand Canyon The Cibola National Forest is closed right now due to very high fire danger which means no hiking except in open space think i'll get another bicycle anyways to ride for conditioning when i'm not up for a hike maybe i can lose a couple pounds and keep it off this time i used to bicycle all the time but got out of it when i was walking 10+miles a day delivering mail now that i'm not doing that, i could enJOY a bicycle ride almost daily for a couple hours i'll get another mountain bike and ride the open spaces where i hike too that should be fun my last mtn bike went to a yard sale for a postal co-worker who had breast cancer it sat in the garage for a few years, so i sent it off for a good cause anyways, i'm all ecstatic about hiking the Grand Canyon in November don't know when the dates are exactly but it will be within the first 2 weeks of the month as requested it'll be cool, or cold, but i'll cuddle with George if i have to keep warm we'll be alright we also have decided to drive over to that new bridge the Native Americans hoisted over the canyon it's another 4hr drive west of where we will be, but we just added an extra day to the trip=provided the funds and time is available it should work out i always figure where there's a will, there's a way!!!! i'm on cloud 9 and i haven't even gotten there yet.....
anyways, after lunch with Stephen i took a nap the last 4days in training at the new job has been a bit hectic mostly getting the confusion of alcohol sales cleared up with a phone call to my boss yesterday when i worked there were 2 situations that arose that others questioned my judgment in one of those situations and the other was a homeless guy, apparently a regular at our store, who came in and i woodn't sell to him the first situation, a mother & son came in and i didn't ID the son i felt she was responsible for him and he's not the one to bring the beer up to the counter well Johnny who i was workin' with felt different so i ID'd the kid anyways who turned out to be 21 anyways o well as far as the homeless guy, we are not to sell to intoxicated people, plus my boss said if they even smell like liquor-DON'T SELL i don't know if he was intoxicated, but i smelled alcohol which he probably smells that way constantly i have no idea for sure that he isn't intoxicated plus he was stumbling on the way out the door, but i didn't judge that to be intoxicated he could be disabled too for he was carrying a cane anyways, the manager-in-training knew him and sold him the liquor i just don't feel comfortable selling to the homeless who drink all the time this happened years ago when i worked a convenience store the manager sold to him that time i woodn't i have a lot of compassion for the homeless, i just don't sell to intoxicated people!
well, so much for the job It's all good....right now i'm off to Marsha's again for a moment forgot my tea & beer i took over there last nite didn't have the beer last nite, think i will tonite i took the day off from the mall a much needed rest for today plus i work the rest of the week every day either at the mall or at the new job=Circle K i finally calculated that i'll quit the mall job in 2-3weeks then it's just one job again, other than helping my friend Rev Jennie at her office a couple hours a week that's nothing....i'm off
THANKS AGAIN RAVEN FOR THE WEBSITE TO THE WONDERFUL ART YOU DISPLAY!!!!.......the website to this art=http://www.deviantart.com/
Love shouldn't hurt all the time...Never let them tell you it should.
If love feels that way, maybe it's not the love you deserve. You can be without a love in your life.
There are times in your life that you will meet someone who will try and make you feel worthless.
Life is meant to be lived, but a great part of our lives is committed to doing the ordinary. To live life fully, you should dedicate yourself to doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Anyone who demands perfection from you is the model of imperfection.
And remember, someone who builds his reputation
Never wish to be like someone else.
Never let them win.
