    Normally I don't make New Years resolutions but this year I'm afraid I have to, to keep my sanity. As my Mom used to say -- is going to Hell in a handbasket. You can fill in the blank with whatever you like. The town I live in is all a mess. They think small while making believe it's a big deal. The state the town is located in is very busy fighting over who can go to the public restrooms. The nation is in big trouble. The "electorate" has chosen the wrong people to run things on a promise to make big changes. Unfortunately the changes that are going to be made are all "smoke and mirrors" as my Dad used to call false promises. So my resolution is to start talking to anyone who will listen. Maybe I can get them to see the light of truth and maybe they will talk to others and start the ball rolling for a better tomorrow. Happy New Year

    Golly gee - finally got around to blogging. A funny thing happened to me recently. My wife told me that I occasionally come across "bitchy" especially when I dressed femme. I don't know if that was a complaint or a compliment. Could be both, I guess. She know my female side does tend to dominate at times - I guess we both tend to be alphas. At least we understand each other. I dress to be comfortable in my "soul." That's an odd concept - I'll have to think about that. I know my spouse understands me, sometime better than I understand myself. She fully accepts my dressing and critiques my selection of outfits. I consider myself very lucky.

    Well, it looks like I haven't blogged since Msy - my how time flies. 2015 was ok - up to standard - nothing to be dazeled about. Politics in ther US is the usual BS one side wants to move into the 21st century and the other side wants to go back to the 16th. Reviewing the thoughts of 2015 I'm confused - hopefully not scared. I don't want to wear a gun. I have no need to wear a gun. I would like to see all sports which cause injury to be stopped and some other activity employed. I would hope universal health care coverage be introduced to the whold world. I would also like to see religious freedom for all. That's my wishes for this new year. LOL

    Lately I've been questioning myself about my painting. I have always painted what I see or what I feel like painting. I'm not a commercial artist -I don't make a living painting. I just do it for self satisfaction. Recently I've been looking at other people's painting and they are making a statement or expressing their feelings in their work. That idea shatters my concept of why I paint - should I express my feelings? Do I have anything to say? Does anyone care about what I think. Should I care about what others think?  I don't express my opinions openly for fear of getting things thrown at me....or some such reaction. I think I might try it but what if I become an outcast?  I think I have always been the "odd person out." So, I think I'll start expressing my opinions about my life, my community, my country, politics and possible religion. I'm not certain about religion because that really rattling the cage - so to speak. Well I glad I got that off my chest and I appreciate the opportunity to.....?

    There was a song which had/has the words "traveling down the highway" - well thats about the way I feel. My life so far has been traveling down the road. I'm not complaining. True, looking back there are things I wish could have happened some time ago. But when I think about those events in my life I have to ask "would I have handled them any differently?" I probably wasn't ready for those changes.  In reviewing my life's changes I can now accepts where I am and how I got here. About 25 years ago I had my horoscope read and the person who did the reading told me change was coming. She said my life to that point was like moving through a mine field and I had reached the end of it. She said according to my scope I had a lot of traveling to do. Well, she was right on. I have journeyed a lot over the past quarter century and I feel that I've got a ways to go. I had a few stumbles - stroke, heart attack, a few bumps and bruses, lost a few friends and made some new friends. I used to kid and say I haven't reached my potential yet. I hope I don't reach my potential - that would mean I learned all my lessons. I still have a lot to learn. Sorry I ramgle sometimes xxxooo

    I come from a family that for unknown reasons used to play with the English language. My mother would say "tempus figits" instead of "tempus fugit." We also had ways of murdering the language "spagetti" was called "pasgetti" and turning words around- Why? You might ask and I'd have to say "Who knows." My dad had nicknames for everyone he worked with - for example one man wore a  toupe - he was called "whiggie." I know I came from a disfunctional family but to compound it with language - ? We did well in school except for my brother who was just a head of me in school. He was termed a "slow lerner." Come to think of it my oldest brother was always getting into trouble. I guess we all had trouble with authority figures. Is that odd?  I still have trouble in that respect. I treat everyone as equals and I suspect they resent that. I guess I'm supposed to act like I'm the inferior one or is it the other way round?  Oh well, as long as I'm the pretty one

    As the song says "I got troubles, wow, wow" - well don't we all? But I must live under a good sign LEO.   My troubles, besides money, as just a few - like I'm a below average alcoholic - three drinks and I'm out. Age seems to be creaping up on me - but isn't everyone's? I'm passable but not here in this burg - too many bigots. I've also noticed that there are an abundance of ugly women folk. I guess what I would call troubles - really don't exist. My wardrobe is pretty good. My love keeps going thru her wardroab and tries to throw garments out. Yesterday, I acquired a white "tank" top.My body isn't shaped right for a gorgeous creature - I dream about- ha!  Pity poor me - as the Eagles song goes "get over it." xxoooxx Gracie

    I've led a quiet life. I have tried not to offend anyone but that doesn't seem to matter. People in general try to walk over me. Am I a door mat? No! I say- I'm not a doormat (I don't know wether thats one word or two). Anyway what s been bothering me at present besides not having any money. Well - since I'm in the company of friends - let me tell you. For some reason my nipples have been bothing me. They seem to want attentiion. They don't seem to connect to anything of importance - they just seem to want attention, So I give the a rub now and then but the now and then seems to be getting more NOW.  Not that I have any semblence of breasts. I'm probably a minus triple A. Pitty me!  I used to wear fakes but they tore apart, rough handling I guess. So now I'm a flat chested cross dresser. Oh that sounds terrible. There used to be a joke about having a treasure chest - sunken - that is.  That's me! So here I sit - fiddling with my nipples. Leave tham alone I keep telling myself - they won't grow. Do you think Vodka is affecting my thinking or writing?

    Language is confusing - I'm not referring to foul or abusive language but just everyday spoken language. I was with a group the other day and this subject can up. It brought to mind that if we're taught a language other than what we speak we don't get the whole picture. Language is like a virus it evolves. For example we can read a book written one hundred years or more and understand it. Yes, there maybe some words we'll have to look up in the dictionary but we can understand it. But the fashion or style it's written in is not how we speak. Another example is I can read a newspaper from another "English" speaking nation and understand most of it but not all - the idioms are different from place to place. Just though I'd get that written - deep thinking?

    I've been looking over to blogs and I saw that I'm remiss -haven't blogged for some time.  Sorry 'bout that. Should I bring my "exciting" life up to date? Sure- now's my chance. I'm almost finished getting another graduate degree -been at it for 2 1/2 years - have only 6 more units to go so I expect to be finished by July. I learned a lot. Getting older like everyone else. Unfortunetly a heart attack and then a stroke interviened but I weathered them...kind of slows you up some. I'm glad my freinds are still here and I hope to get back in the flow soon. hugs and kisses Gracie
