2020 Is Abnormal Isn’t It?

And yet they use most of them…

Winter for real appears to be upon us. A few nights with hard freeze in a row are sign enough – time to go into the deep freeze now for months. I did it to myself – so no complaining. I mention it because I got some big news on the health front this week: I need a new shoulder! I need it, but I likely won’t get it for a few more years because if I get it now (at 50 years old) it will wear out in my mid-late 70s and then I will be too old to get another new one; thus, what I need to do is wait as long as I can so that the replacement shoulder poops out as close to my death as I can steer it. As you can see – very cheerful stuff! I am not through digesting it all, and there is much more to it, but I am never going to have a time where I can’t use more content, so I will save the details for the weeks to come. Until then, I am just trying to get my life in order. First among priorities is spiritual – I am working on getting baptized before the end of the year. I am trying to also be diligent on the mundane stuff too and get my to do list down to ZERO by the end of the year. That would be an epic accomplishment too. I am making some big leaps forward as a person, and so while I dislike 2020 for the same reasons everyone else does, I must say, I am having more success between my ears, and in my heart, than I ever have. Hang with me. I will keep updating as I can, but if I can get myself turned around, anything is possible! More to come – some miscellany from around the planet we all share:
