THE WEIRD OLD MAN WHO CAN'T STOP MAKING ART
Finally...hmmm, no not finally but it seems I can procrastinate indefinately about doing basic maintenance around our little home...well...there is almost an acre that comprises the front and back yard as well as my studio that has kind of been in a steady rate of freefall ever since I built it 20 years ago....

Friday 6 July
I've noticed a thing or two about myself in the last few years, that being my disillusionment of ever making it to the dog heap has been far too overrated being the top of the dog heap's best view is only the shit piles below and that's about all...the other thing or two is even though I drink my quota of booze, most often like W.C. Fields, I may be drunk today, but tomorrow I will be sober, and all of the crazies will still be crazy...and while I am on my little rant there just is too little time to be involved in other peoples plans for their self promotion...obviously I 'd rather promote myself. Okay, that's done.
All one really can do is do the best you can and give full freedom to other people in whatever they want to do for themselves...as long as they don't get in your face, what is to be concerned about?
July 4th hip hip hooray!
