Seems I've Done It.......

.....once again. I've let my ambitions, which still think I'm a 25 year old, run the show. This obviously ignores the fact that I'm a somewhat decrepit 'Older Fellah'. This should have been driven home to my dull thinking apparatus by now, especially as my latest 'reminder' arrived last week in the form of a 'Power Chair' to attempt to prevent my nearly regular tendency to fail to remain vertical when walking.
   Despite all indicators pointing to my having slowed down a tad, new projects are tackled with great vigor, in my mind. The reality is that my 'Honey-do' list, along with every other 'list', is growing in the 'back-log' area. This blog is another example. I finally decided the new style format and edit program was a great idea. Thus, the new look. Thus also what their phrase 'some information loss' when transitioning became VERY clear as evidenced by the lack of many 'Old Template' features, like almost ALL of them!!!
   So now, 'blog items' to do on my personal 'gotta do' list has grown lengthy. To complicate matters, I had a number of items collected in my e-mail inbox to post here. Yesterday, at zero-dark-thirty hours EDT, my mail program decided to 'burp' and erased my inbox contents! Numerous attempts by myself and my mail provider using every trick we knew failed to resurrect said info.
   I've got plenty of other material, on disks waiting to be reinstalled on my 'not so recently' repaired and now brainless PC. So, this is my apology to myself for failing to post items more frequently on here. MORE 'to-do' items!!! Also, I've resolved to apply myself more diligently to all 'lists' and try to get the estimated 'last current item completion date' moved from the 22nd century back to at least the latter years of the 21st century.
  Until then, I'll just relieve the stress by 'scooting around' in here on my new transporter in hopes of moving the speed control from complete 'turtle' to 'very slow turtle' before I finish 'adjusting' all the furniture, doorways, and kitty tails beyond repair. That would make the 'lists' to grow anew.
Until next time, stay safe, stay well, and definitely stay outta the path of my 'scooter'!!!!!

Hey, Mike, great picture of scary bear. (Gulp. I have nightmares that look like him. But that's just me.)

So sorry your email glitched. Thanks, though, for posting whenever you can. Enjoy the power of the chair. :o)

Oh, your poor furniture :P

Syd...the furniture is fairly safe it seems & the cats have learned to scramoose when they hear the 'on' switch. The doorways? Well.....we could use some new casings anyway.

I'm sure you'll be able to do lots of wheelies in that. My mother-in-law had one and it could move fast. Very cool!

Here's the deal on honey-do lists. The words on it can only be nouns. No verbs. You get to supply the verb. So the list might say "bird feeder." You can then LOOK at the bird feeder, comntemplate the concept of a bird feeder. Or, just maybe, you might want to fill it. The point is that ypu get to decide. Works fine between the Spousal Unit and me.
