Better off Today.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Folks, Friends, Readers and Brothers!
Ahhh, I feel much better today all around, physically, mentally and emotionally.  PTL. At least I am learning how to 'bounce back' and have a good 'damage control' tool for my 'fix it box.'

I guess that part of my personality has always been that of a survivalist, sometimes fantasizing "what if" or 'when the storm comes'.... and you will find many combat Veterans who have the same markings on their soul too.  I figured that where is the harm in stocking up on toilet paper, laundry soap, and batteries??  Duh!  I shudder to think about the 'hard times' when parents worry all night about where to get the money so their kids can eat properly, etc, etc.  My aged, 62 year old eyes have seen enough poverty and heart break to  last a life time-- and I know that many people, so-called 'friends' including my own 'pastor' have laughed at me for storing a few canned goods, etc.  The thing is:  a real, Christian automatically MUST  "Trust in the Lord with all his heart and lean NOT upon his own understanding."  ~Proverbs 3:5.  OK!  I DO THAT GOOD STUFF, and I know the Bible backwards and forwards, and try my best to follow the foot steps of my Lord and Savior!  But the scriptures-- the "Good Book" also says to use your noodle and LEARN how to provide, work hard for your family!!  Right now I need to get some more laundry soap, bleach, and fresh fruit, etc.

Hey!!  I just got my 2007 Dodge Ram 4 by 4 back from the Pulera Collision Center in Kenosha, WI where they were working on it for TWO WEEKS!!  The steering and brakes seem kind of 'stiff' but the high winds were blowing me around on highway I-94 coming home.  So much extra, comfortable leg and head room in my beloved truck, compared to the small chicken coop rental Ford Escape!  Thank you, Lord!  I had to pay a $250 deductible... and pay for my 'sins' .. lol.  So this also means that I have my cool, vary valuable,  power scooter back too to help my legs and knee continue to mend and heal, and need to charge that battery today.  'Back in the Saddle again' ~ Gene Autry.  The rest of the day is mine, and someone came over to clean my house this morning too.   Things are back in order, and I intend to use some money to buy new tires that I spied at Farm and Fleet a few weeks ago-- for the back of my Ram before Winter,  but didn't know where the cash was coming from. Well, now,  the $1500 that I almost [goofed up] gave to a goofy, selfish woman-- down on her luck to help her with the bills she couldn't manage [but she just 'LOVES her independence' since she got divorced] -- is now free to buy 2 tires!  Hey--Satan sure does have a strangle hold on women these days with their almighty 'Women's Lib and Independence' thingy,  and that is NOT how God intended marriage/ relationships  to function!  See Genesis 3:13, "And the woman said, The serpent BEGUILED me, and I did eat. [!!!]."  And the woman was made as a "helper" for Adam, a loving helper [NOT A SLAVE, SERVANT OR 2ND CLASS PERSON OF LESSOR WORTH- like the Islamic folks teach and demand, or behead !!].  The apostle Paul repeats this fact later on in the Greek New Testament scriptures.   I am JUST saying that we all have our proper, respected  "roles" as men and women on earth.  Frankly, I am in awe of God's fine creation of women, so beautiful, lovely, warm and cuddly-- but also in need of a good, Bible loving man-Christian, who is kind, respectful and patient.  I still miss my past wife, Sharon, so much, and it took years to get to know her and learn her language, needs, wants, desires and nature-- but it was worth it, and I did bring her to the Lord....  Lord heal my heart and mind... and those like me, men AND women.    As an old black buddy who worked with me on the Chrysler assemble line used to say, "It's all good."  [gooooood] He liked to 'draw out the "O's".. lol. 

You all have got to know how much more easier, simpler, and less complicated life is when you're single...Ha!  You can pay off your bills, live cheap--but well, save and invest tons of money, and never want...  except for something that is  'missing' -- a mate.  I just got to take it slower and easier, and block out my desires and take more COLD SHOWERS like I used to years ago!  Heck!  I think I will do that today!! Woo Woo!  I want to be kind and sympathetic, but I NEED to hang tough and just let people figure out finance and debt management for themselves!  Just because I took a challege/ chance and left welding for a while [my chosen skill--bread and butter]-- got a Blue chip education in Finance and Security Licensed in Federal Securities, doesn't mean I have to run after every 'stray dog' that limps by me.  Some gals don't know that hanging all the fancy, expensive drapes, curtains and having the best fancy homes/ apartments won't balance the check book against harsh reality in a corrupts, failing society.  I learned the hard way too!   I had to work hard, study and pay out mucho dollars for all this information at one time-- when the rest were laughing and partying on.

I hope the rental car company in Kenosha won't charge me for a detailing because I ate some Popeye's chicken in the car-- was so hungry, starving myself half the time to be nice and skinny...Ha!  If I had a mate to make a good, balanced, reasonable sized meal every day, I guess I would be a lot better off.  Now I am going to eat some cold, left over pizza from last night-- as the dog watches me, begging for scraps, even though his dish is full of good dog food.

Let me thank all my dear friends for their constant support for Old Soldier Tom's many 'adventures.'  I ought to write a book.. lol.

Warm Regards,
