    Heard this one Finski ?

    Jesus decides to take a stroll around to check and see how things are doing...he comes upon an old man, sitting on a rock with his face in his hands, crying profusely. Jesus walks towards him and asks "why so sad. What is your sorrow, friend" ?
    The man still crying with head in hands says" I was a carpenter. I lived with my son...one day he left and I never saw him again. I've looked the world over, but have had no success finding him...but I would recognize him because has holes in his hands and feet"...
    Jesus, looks down at him with a lump in his throat, and asks, " is that you Father" ?
    The man looks up, through tearful eyes and asks
    "Pinocchio"? !

    I know that one. It's a classic.
    Then
    I must admit, Zoo ... your post made me think you'd lost a human loved one, but realizing it is your dog (from others' posts), it still hits home. It's been decades since my boyhood dog Kilroy died, but I wept for days then and he was a true friend.

    Once we are in Kentucky, sometime this fall, we will add a pooch to our family. It has been too long without one.

    Murph came to me at a time in my life when I was a caregiver to my wife and mother. I didn't go to work then, I was home for a decade trying to hold things together..they both eventually passed, but no way I would have made it without Murphy, especially when it was only my mother left. He saved my mother's life one morning during a spell of dementia she had.He enabled me to do what I had to on a daily basis when I had to leave her alone. And when my own life was falling apart. I was with him 24/7 for 15 years...I can count on my fingers the days I wasn't - all hospital stays. We did everything together, every day, for years..
    He was never a dog that just greeted me me when I came home from work type relationship, and then I took him to the park on weekends, etc. We had a job to do every day, and he did his without fail, as a partner.
    I not only loved him with all my heart, I respected him as much as I ever did anyone in my life.

    I believe that. I've seen it. God bless Murphy.

    Kentucky move update ... (like anyone gives a rip, really)

    - we accepted an offer on our house yesterday. We got our price. Now it's up to the escrow thing and the waiting. We'll likely know more by later today/tomorrow but I anticipate a late May departure.
    - my interview last week with a small Catholic high school in Kentucky bore fruit. I got the call yesterday and was offered the job there as the newest English teacher. So ... looks like I'll be a teacher a while longer. I had halfway hoped to get a gravedigger's job in the cemetery, or the shipping supervisor at one of the many distilleries there - seriously. Twenty-four years in the classroom has been taxing as hell, and I thought a change might be in the offing. But it is a real blessing to have the job before we leave, even though we were going with or without employment first. I have plenty left in the tank (homo?) so here I go again, southern-style...

    Plenty of support from good friends, and especially so from Diablo & Rube in here; they have been kind, patient, and upbeat about this throughout. I'm grateful and humbled, truly.

    Mahalo, bkitches.

    To each his own, I suppose, BDK. I admire that you've put so much thought into this... I'll give you that much. I hope you find the success you're projecting and I know that many have with a system similar to yours. I couldn't do what you suggest will take two hours a day (in a different post you mentioned two-hour work weeks, which was confusing to me). My point is that even if I could do my charting in two hours, I would still be glued to the monitor for the remainder of the market hours and then probably for the after-market as well. I manage people's money for a living, and the buying-and-holding of diversified portfolios of quality investments has worked well for both me and my clients. That's not to say the allocations aren't managed - they certainly are - but in most cases they're managed proactively, not reactively. Point is, we don't sweat market swings... we trust our allocations, and we hold tight and ride them out. If I was day trading, I'd worry about every tick of movement and I'd be ruled by stress. I'd never feel comfortable detaching myself from the action even for a few hours respite. That's just me. I know everyone is different and you probably have the fortitude to handle this better than I could. Also, I acknowledge that to get to the asset level where they're at, my clients had to work for the man for many years - something you're looking to avoid. Best of luck to you, my friend.

    No fuck you finski!
    I'm not happy you leaving the southland.
    Because that would mean I wanted you to leave or I approve of your message of leaving
    And I didnt.
    That's how I voted.
    I voted with my words that I did not want you to leave.

    Right up till you sign the papers.
    So by voting against you leaving I was letting you know in my own way that I was 100 percent behind you.

    And waiting for Finski brand fire water.
    100 proof!

    Ahh man. That’s a bummer bro. Always admired the pick you had of him as your avatar. Beautiful dogs. 15 years is a long time filled with great memories.

    stay up friend!

    No more Coumbus Day...Indigenous People Day instead. I'm all for Natives getting their day and shit, very pro Indian, Inuit, Hawaiian, but it should have been done decades ago...not at the expense of another group's day.it
    Should have taken Thanksgiving's place maybe.
    I wonder what Frankie Fiveangels would've said about this ?
