Remember Ol' Gus sayin' that?
Sold the House... and had a new, tight lil' budget sketched out... It would be a squeeker and take just a few more months of prep/repair work... but it would fly...
Then, of 'course... that damn Murphy fella ups and lets us know... he's got other plans... again. :o)
Broken bits... confusions... and employers runnin' scared and cuttin' hours (eliminating a necessary part of that "squeeker" budget)... just as their sales and traffic start their normal summer boom??? which makes a dumb mountain cowboy stop an' scratch his head...
Just about the time we started spending a lil' bit... to get things ready on our "Leaving To Do List"... and deal with "Old Stuff"... The cash flow into our vast coffers... slowed to a trickle... Wow... Now That was unexpected.
Right... Kind of like the wind in Wyoming! :o) ... Totally unexpected! ;o)
The "Recovering Economy" ain't showin' itself in our pockets yet... so... Heidi and I are thinkin' along the lines of Cowboy Up! ...
Translated... that's sayin' ... "Let's just Go on and GO... if we're Goin'!"...
We're danged close to pullin' that trigger too! ... Only thing holdin' things in now... are some time commitments that'll hold us 'round here till the first part of August... then what happens, is anybody's guess!
We'll start makin' a lot of small circles 'till then... 'till Ol' Murphy gets used to seein' us pullin' out... and then... one time... we just won't come back! :o)
The thing is this... life was too short, when I was 20, to set around waitin'... and it's a lot shorter now... The rig ain't ready, we're knocked back to a lot less truck, that we'd really like to make some changes on... but that costs dinero! and that dinero's not there, at least for long...
There's a whole passel of reasons why - lots of folks would tell us; "It won't work"...
I've been told that my whole damn life... "You can't do this... You can't do that!"...
Well guess what boys an' girls? ... Phooey! I've heard all that junk, that only keeps people scared, for too damn long... and to quote those Cross Canadian Ragweed fellas... "I'm sick an' tired of bein' Sick an' Tired!" :o)
I'm ready to get back to Livin'! and Livin' well... I'm weary of surrendering to the "Wise Council" that has me runnin' scared all the damn time... I've only got one word for all those Naysayers...
Keep it to yourselves... or my boot is gonna give ya'll some Cowboy Motivation!
Ok... so I can't count...
Just consider that a blessing... with little mathematical ability... you can't know that you're broke! :o)
We've pretty much made the decision... and when our promises to a few folks have been fulfilled... Paint our Wagon... GONE!
We ain't got what we'd prefer... but we've got each other... Good Friends, and Faith...
Faith that we can deal with whatever comes along... one way or t'other
So... right soon... it's gonna get... Right Western! ... and folks are gonna claim; "That boy has done rounded the corner and plumb lost his mind!... and drug that poor woman with him!"
Guess what?... she's not gettin' drug... she's pushin'! :o)
Take Good Care
