Sorry that I got out of bed today, twice.

First call was from my Mom asking me to drop what I was doing and go let my sister in the house because she locked herself out for some reason.  I was in my pajamas and it is snowing with a half a foot on the ground and rising.  My Mom was at a doctor and was going to get home before I could dig out to go over.  I have not spoken to my sister for over a year now, so I was not thrilled to begin with and my Mom did get there before I could have anyway.

Then about a half an hour ago, while I'm in bed taking a nap, someone starts banging at the door like the world was coming to an end, so I jump out of bed, scurry to find some pants and open the door and this huge guy starts grunting and waving and flashing his fingers at me.  Once I figured out that he was trying to get me to have him shovel me out I said no, repeatedly.  I have a snow blower.  Made no difference, turns out he is deaf and cannot read lips.  He was flashing his fingers as if to say $10 as it now appears.  Called the office to let them know what was going on and the lady speculated that he was a deaf guy who lives on another street nearby and if he tries to collect, call the police.  Which I ended up doing, fearing that this guy might get mad and retaliate in someway.  The guy is a big as a moose and could probably bend train tracks on his knee if he felt like it. 

So I had to once again scurry to hide the roaches as they say so that the cops could come in and hear what I had to say.  Great and with Patty gone for a month, it looked like it.  So the officer came in and I told him the story, making sure that I only wanted it documented so in case the guy had any issues with me, there would be something.  The place was a mess and I looked like Jim from Taxi on a bad day ...  Nothing like putting your best foot forward when the police come over for an impromptu visit.

I feel like shit for no cause of my own.  To make matters worse, the guy did a good job and I didn't have more than $3 in cash to give him something even if I wanted to.  There's a couple of other things that transpired during the snow shoveling episode that only added to my frustration but oh well ...  Ain't going back to sleep now.  Too much freaking adrenaline going on.

Can't make this shit up, its too bizarre.

xanax ... take me away ...

I think that's where you see the two faces: life is brief and I'll enjoy it as much as I can (why not?) - vs - there's a reward in the afterlife (or I believe in a common humanity that deserves compassion) and I shouldn't hurt others.

 
I need to up my generosity and charity. You know, like poor people.

I wasn't raised particularly Christian, and I don't think religion has much of anything to do with it (at least in the large-scale labels, maybe some denominations are better than others). I know plenty of non-Christians who are truly inspiring in their dedication to social welfare and plenty who are not. And I know Christians who's generosity, I believe, truly is done out of love for those in need, not for a future reward.

I'll never understand those who seem to think that moral superiority leads to money and money demonstrates moral superiority.

Glad to know there's good in the world, but embarrassed by what's happened to America over the decades I've been alive.

We've been in Aruba for past week and leaving tomorrow for a few days in Orlando before going back home.

Yesterday evening, riding bikes, wife hit the curb and fell. Cut over right eye (will be fine - I had spare tissue adhesive and it repaired easily). Face bruising and she had little birds circling her head for a while.

At least 10 Arubans offered help as she sat bleeding from her face, me wiping the wound with the shirt off my back, hoping her brain was OK and she hadn't broken her jaw/teeth. (They're all fine). Then, the one short white man, about 70, walking past us growling "get your bikes off the sidewalk" as he easily walked by. We were disturbing him. 
"My wife is bleeding from her fall." 
"Your bikes are in the way, move em." And he keeps walking past us, not looking back.
and I thought of the worst insult I could hurl at him as he waddled away: "You're clearly an American." 

Thanks to the kind Aruban woman who tore open her newly purchased toilet paper to give us a whole roll, then went back to her car to get a water bottle for my wife. Then she kindly walked me through the steps of how to clean the wound, where the drugstore was, what to purchase to hold it together, and suggested we stay out of the sun so it would scar less. (Which is true, good advice.) Once I got her home I cleaned her up, took out some gravel embedded next to her nose, and got some ice on things. Much better today - whew. 

How is it that we've seen the Woodstock Generation grow up to be such entitled dicks, particularly how we treat other nations? Sad.

 
I hear you. I think our largess has tainted us (and I'm not out of this fray). I am also struck by the general kindness of people when we are in third world areas, and it reminds me to try and do better.

I'm also amazed at the wide expanse of our achievement. How is it that the same people that have sent Voyager into interstellar space (carrying some Chuck Berry along with it), and are still managing achievements on that mission 40 years later, are the the same people who are turning a blind eye to a famine in Yemen that is killing 6 children an hour and is caused entirely by the actions of a particularly savage ally of ours?

How can we harness our ability to do great things and utilize our energy and resources for such magnificent achievements, but at the same time let the weakest and most vulnerable among us suffer needlessly?  How do we reconcile the two faces of humanity?

So I feel abashed, forgiven, content, thrilled, embraced, loved, loving, appreciating - well, you get the dealio. Best part?

About two whole gallons of liquid gold! Except who wants turkey soup any other time of the year.

Ask Jax about her corn pudding. I dare you. Or me about the scalloped sweet potato stacks.
