Caged Lightning

I wasn't going to write another blog entry but being in a car hit by lightning is a very strange thing to have happened. It was like my car was in a cage of lightning and I was blinded by white light for a few seconds as I drove. I didn't even think about stopping the car. I guess I was in shock but I didn't get shocked and I can find nothing wrong with my car. I saw the lighting around my car and heard the thunder at the same time. I don't know why I didn't run off the road.

9/11 and the Truth

What happened on 9/11, 2001? I know what happened, my future for my country was stolen. I don't believe in all the wild stories on the edited out of context movies on YouTube. Sorry I've worked on a lot of propaganda movies and I know all the tricks of the trade.

Do we know all the facts? I'm sure we don't but that doesn't mean reality fits into our own narrow view of the world. I believe we all have a narrow view of the world. I'm not God and anyone reading this isn't God. We are at best a pinprick of God and can't know all things.

I am taking a break from blogging until November 1, 2010.

Epic Fail

I stayed up two days working on the bashed together doll house I put together for my Grand Daughter Cordelia. I wanted to have it finished for her Birthday. I finished the basic construction and put a primer coat of paint on the plastic model. I borrowed my parents van as the dollhouse was too tall to fit in my car. On the way up to the party the dollhouse fell apart as I used the wrong type of glue on it.

The above picture is of the dollhouse after I glued it back together. Oh well now it's going to be a Christmas present.


"It's amazing the tree fell at 5:13 just as we looked at the clock on the courthouse,"

"Robert it's not 5:13 yet, you mean 3:15."

"Yeah, you're right the tree fell on the house at 3:15."

I look at my Daughter-In-Law Amanda with a dumb look on my face and think to myself; Stupid broken brain.

My Daughter-In-Law called me.

"Robert, do you want to come up early and go to the carnival with Cordelia and I?"

I'm so tired and my mind is starting to fall apart in what I call a memory drop. Every few months I forget just about everything for a few days. Why did I have to break a steering wheel off with my face all those years ago?

"Sure I'll come"

I hang up the phone. I'm too tired to dive but it's my grand daughters birthday. No that's not it. Something bad will happen if I don't go. Damn the crazy spirit stuff in my head. Hell, I'm too tired to go. The last time I drove when I was this tired I had a car wreak. Damn why do I believe in this junk? Why can't I be normal?

Then I think of the hundreds of times I predicted near term events. Then I think of the thousands times I predicted things that never happened. I don't have a vision. I just have a gut feeling. I can prove nothing, so I'll tell no one. I drive towards my Grand Daughter's house thinking I shouldn't be driving this tired.

I should stop to eat. No then I'll be late and something bad will happen. "You're an idiot Robert!" I say to myself but I drive on.

I get there and we walk to the carnival with Aunt Torrie. I eat bad overpriced food. Like a idiot I run out in the road to save a bag of marshmallows that little Cordelia drops as a hot wind picks up.

I'm hot and tired and want to go back but I can't ask because it's too soon. I don't don't know why but it is.

"What time is it?"

I ask and Amanda looks to the clock tower on the court house.

"It's 3:15."

I think to myself, It's time to go back. Everything is OK now.

We walk back and a tree has fell in the back yard. Big limbs are on top of the house and in the front yard where Cordelia plays are two large limbs laying across her wagon.

A neighbor tells my son later that the tree fell at 3:15.

Mermaid Monday: Her First Mono Fin

On her third birthday party the little girl got her first mono-fin.
