Sometimes, God just pisses me off

I don't believe anything happens without a reason. Today a lot of negative little things seemed to have piled up one after the other, all day long. My first thought is, God is trying to tell me something. My second thought is, does He have to be such a prick about it!!?? 🤯🤬😡

The Politics of Religion... Sooo disappointing

My rather flippant and largely uncharitable response to this is to reiterate one of my favourite  quotes... "the more I talk with people, the more I love my dog."

I read where others, several others, comment that 'this is why I don't like organized religion' ...and honestly, even while I'm aware of the good arguments against that statement, I find it difficult not to agree. Being a baptized Catholic that now attends an Anglican Church, I do feel like I've jumped from the proverbial frying pan into the fire.

I made that 'jump' just over three years ago and was waiting for "The Vote" then to decide if I'd stay or go. I wanted, mostly above all else, to be part of an institution that is inclusive. The vote at that synod was in favour of the changes, and I was happy as it meant the 'spiritual home' I had found was one that I was comfortable with calling my own. Now, after the required 2nd vote, I find myself rethinking that. I also feel somewhat betrayed, which I admit isn't entirely rational. Certainly the voting process itself needs some attention... organized religion at its finest.

Anyway, for me this is much food for thought (and prayer).

Please excuse the rant. Peace....

Mediterranean Diet

Snapped this image on the wall at my cardiologist's office. A dietician who spoke with me a couple months back said it was good, but not entirely good for me. But you know what? From where I was, to this, would be such an enormous improvement - if I could actually do it that is... but whatever. I'm down about 40 lbs in 5 months so I'm happy. So if this diet keeps me where I need to be, I'm happy.

Father’s Day Has Time in a Bottle Playing in My Head

Father's Day 2019 was one of my best ever! A couple of daughters couldn't make it but sent me beautiful messages of love. My other two daughters brought dinner over, along with grandkids, a friend and his kids, and my mother came as well. Shelley was the perfect hostess for all ages, especially liked by the kids as they all played with the bunnies, chickens and goats. We all had such a good time.

Even the weather cooperated. A gorgeous day! In my opinion, I sure don't deserve to be surrounded by such beautiful people but God has other ideas and His love knows no bounds. And so all morning, as I enjoy the memories of yesterday, Jim Croce's 'Time in a Bottle' song is playing in my head.

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then
Again, I would spend them with you

Pink Floyd in My Head

This morning's song lyrics that popped into my head are from Pink Floyd's 'Time'
Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught
Or half a page of scribbled lines 
Hanging on in quiet desperation...

Giving Uber Another Go

Decided to keep at Uber for a bit. Why not? I have nothing to replace it yet, except maybe my t-shirt biz, I could focus on that. Problem is, as much as I've come to dislike driving, I love the people I meet driving Uber and hosting on Airbnb.

So giving Uber another go... but it's not going well so far. Ninety minutes in, sitting in what is usually a hot area for UberEats, and not one call. ZERO. And I have the app set for both UberX and UberEats trips.

So ya, not overly encouraging for a guy who starts to melt if he can't keep moving.

Not sure of the exact year. Could be 1970 or 1972. But that's me in the 2nd row, 2nd in from the right. My Dad (John Rodkin) coached, he...
