A brand new us.

I’m a Virgo, and one thing that my people hate is change.

Ironically, the one thing in life that is an absolute guarantee (aside from death and taxes, unless you’re smart, or ultra wealthy, then it’s just death), is change. As I’ve touched on a few times in the last six weeks, I’m currently in need of a spiritual reboot, and I think a small part of what will be involved in this is a slight readjustment in my posting schedule. Since May 31st, 2006, come rain or shine I’ve maintained a posting schedule of three times a week. So as to take a bit of work off my plate, and at least for now, I think I’m going to switch it from Monday, Wednesday and Friday to Tuesday and Thursday, with the standard ‘One For The Weekend’ happening every Saturday.

Of course we will have the normal array of bull garbage and lies that we’ve come to expect, but we’ll just have one day less of it.

I think what initially inspired this was being laid up on the sofa for all of 2015 with a blown out knee, followed by a major laceration, cellulitis, a separated toe, which was then finished up with a swollen, and excruciating little bow of shingles. After surviving a solid year of illness and injury, all the while turning myself inside out to maintain positivity and come up with any kind of content at all, while never giving myself a break, I hit a wall. I eventually kinda dusted myself off, but the last ten months starting with Leroy’s suicide, Buddy dying, the cancerous melanoma, the recent seizure, and so forth, has offered such profound personal challenges, that I’ve concluded I need a break in order to rediscover my happiness, inspiration, and way.

Until, (and assuming) I do, I’ll always have this;

A grown man standing by himself in the woods playing with a toy truck…

With that in mind, maybe a brand new me isn’t such a great idea after all.

Spread this like it's sick

    The truck turned out very nice!

    Maybe a mix-up of your routine will be just the thing you need to get a different perspective on things. Good luck, man.

    That truck looks amazing.

    I’ve been interested in those RC crawlers for years and have now looked into them.

    I blame you I’m about to spend money.

    Man, I’ve not had your last 10 months, thank Whomever, but yeah. Get your passport up to date and come visit us in the the land of unfathomable absurdity, and Deutschland is just up the road a bit.

    Change is good. Change is your friend.
    We need more pics of the truck though. If for no other reason than to find out what colour the other door is.

      I’ll see your toy in the woods, and raise you starting a toy store.

    Life is like a bathroom renovation. You have to demo all the old shit and install all the new shit so you can continue to shit.
