Random Observations on Life

Random Observations on Life

Over time, owners do resemble their dogs!


This is a blog about a dog. Well not really. This is the more about the ramblings of the dog's dutiful owner, Blue's Dad. Although Blue might be the backdrop of this whole experiment, there's no telling where this trail will lead me. I apologize ahead of time for the randomness of my observations. I've always tended to color outside the lines.

OK, now back to reality!

So I must've been in some sort of layoff induced coma when I wrote that last post.

After reading it again, I pictured everyone going in and giving their boss the 'take this job and shove it' routine, then heading up to the mountains to make a loin cloth and commune with nature. That's not the way I feel on a day to day basis.

First and foremost, we have the obligation to provide for ourselves and our family. It's not always fun and it's not always fullfilling. I'm sure Adam didn't enjoy working by the sweat of his brow everyday with all those thorns, bugs, etc. So we may not always enjoy what we do we just do what it takes.

My point was to those on the front end of their careers who still have many, many choices. When I go to get ice cream, I would much rather go to a place like Coldstone where I have many, many choices even if I end up getting Vanilla in the end. Choices are good.

Now if you believe that studying Ancient Russian Neo Philosophy is what you need to do, you may find your choice may not even include Vanilla.

So first of all, if you've got to work anyway, might as well make it at least in your general arena of liking.

That's all I've got to say abooouuut thaaaat!

Don't worry Randy. I think most of us knew what you were saying and the point you were making. I know that I did not go and obtain a degree to go and work for a city's public works deptartment, but hey! It puts a roof over my head in the meantime. But I do have faith that my avocation will also be my vocation. :)

I'd rather be happy broke, than lonely with wealth.

BUT...I'd really like to try out happy with wealth. ;)

On a serious note...that was good advice, as we are coming upon a crossroad in our life, and have had a lot on our minds.

Yes, PJ, but isn't it great to have the crossroads? Congrats to you and Sam and the whole tribe for hanging in there.

Just remember Eve ate Adam out of house and home and caused him to live in the desert! Okay I'll get the bat.
