Turning the page on one’ life

I know that every one of us have wondered about the state of the economy and where we go from here. It really doesn’t make a big difference any more, does it?

It’s so funny to hear the stories from the sergeant’s office about their daily pits into the world of civil service. The laughs sound all to famillure from years past and departments ago. Through no fault of their own it’s just ironic to hear some of the same comments and bitches that were said maybe 30 years ago in another place far away. My comments then were of the old guys in charge who don’t really care about the younger guys and there opportunities to grow within the department.

Holy mackerel kingfish guess whose calling the kettle black now. With little time spent on that all necessary skill called experience, our youth has gone from wondering if they will be accepted to the fraternity to being the under aged leaders of the fraternity.

When things in general get upside down in life a new order is usually trying to immerge out of the rubble to set the new standard and put the old horses out to pasture once in for all. I can’t help but feel this new cycle of management has totally erased a life time of learned and accepted human behavior. Oh well in 100 years who’s going to care about our little problems here on earth.

That’s the one thing about keeping the ageing old farts working in any field; it keeps a lid on the impatience’s that spills over from every conversation that comes from top down. Once we allow the more successful people to be run out of our business it will make it easier to enact laws governing such behavior and open the doors wider for CHANGE, you ever heard that before? My god man, have we allowed the fox under a different name to guard the chickens or what?

Remembering as a kid I always wondered why you could always see old folks just setting on the porches as if they didn’t have a care in the world. I guess some things just aren’t meant to be understood or so the illusions of such matters were downgraded enough not to worry about.

The modern society with all its television and satellites projecting news just before it happens all over the world has brought relief to some wile bringing a ticking time bomb to others and changing the face of our world as we once knew it. I think our forefathers had it right upon signing the Constitution of the United States.

A More Perfect Union:
The Creation of the U.S. Constitution

May 25, 1787, freshly spread dirt covered the cobblestone street in front of the Pennsylvania State House, protecting the men inside from the sound of passing carriages and carts. Guards stood at the entrances to ensure that the curious were kept at a distance. Robert Morris of Pennsylvania, the "financier" of the Revolution, opened the proceedings with a nomination--Gen. George Washington for the presidency of the Constitutional Convention. The vote was unanimous. With characteristic ceremonial modesty, the general expressed his embarrassment at his lack of qualifications to preside over such an august body and apologized for any errors into which he might fall in the course of its deliberations. A reprint from the National Archives,, read it sometime.

A more perfect union, boy that sounds good but for everything that sounds good in life there is someone figuring out how to make a buck on it. I have been told by those who are far more classically trained than me to keep my nose out of state business. Well I guess they told me. If you want something bad enough and you work hard enough you may succeed, but as we older folks already know there are no guarantees in life not even for the good .

I would suggest however that we all read just a little bit harder and believe just a little bit less but trust in what your parents may have told you about right and wrong. Anytime a person is attached to a cause through a financial director such as either one of our well known political bodies it’s not going to be good. The clock never goes back and even if it did they never kept very good time anyway. When our politicians or even some of our local people tell you it’s for our good then let’s make sure they are taking the same medicine, same insurance and housing opportunities as well.

Let’s be realistic that’s why they put two sides on the coin, everything’s a crap shoot these days. All I want for Christmas this year is my two front teeth that are just as important to a little girl as life itself to me. Let’s not waste time bickering over the little shit this year, as we are all blessed with special needs and abilities both, to help us and those that truly need our help where at the end of the day a simple thank you is all we need to feel good.

Yes I guess I have turned the page for me but remember each and every one of us must turn our own page as we grow into it. Life’s not really cruel but sometimes we find that we have more need from our own family if they will have us. I say this because it’s my turn to enjoy what no man can change.

Good night John boy.
