The Thanksgiving Day Blues
Could have been the traffic heading to Wal-Mart!
🦃🦃🦃I had a great time today being with family and friends and I am pleased to say that there was no drama at the gathering. The thing today that made me sad was all the cars out and about and all in a hurry and all the restaurants and stores open all day. I remember when there were maybe 5 cars within 10 miles that were out on this holiday that was doing the same thing I was doing, looking for a store that was open because I forgot some milk or needed something. There used to never even be a grocery store open or a convenience store. It's really sad how many people have to work on Thanksgiving. I know a lot of places pay double or holiday pay but still. Thanksgiving is a day to be with your family or loved ones and it should not be called "friendsgiving" or "turkey day get together" it is called Thanksgiving, to be thankful for the ones you have in your life and to be thankful to be alive. I just wanted to vent how irritated I was to see so many people out and about. I know a whole lot of people were out there just to go shopping because the Black Friday sales that used to be only on Friday have now poured into Thanksgiving. So now everyone goes shopping on Thanksgiving because all the stores are open and nobody cares anymore about the value of taking a day off and enjoying yourself and your family. I don't even want to get on the subject of shopping on Black Friday but I will just say this one little thing about it, I hate it I hate it I hate it never have I ever been out in that mess and never have I needed anything that much that was on sale that it couldn't wait. I know a lot of people just buy things because they are on sale and that is sad but that is the way a lot of people have been brought up! I just hope that one day it will go back to being where nobody cared that much about shopping and about going out and then Thanksgiving maybe one day everyone will stay at home and eat and eat and eat and watch football.
Most towns thrive on that what brings more people, money, fame, and growth and little ole Titusville is no exception to the normal wants of a semi-small town. The claim to fame here is great views of the launches from across the Indian River, aka ICW. (All my own opinion of course) There are references to space all over the area and not just in Titusville, all around the area, and in Orlando, there are random references to the nearby claim to famers. Many people line the river whenever there is a launch and even more so bring out the food trucks when it is a momentous one, like a shuttle or a rocket carrying humans. There are 3 beaches which are all about 30 minutes or so from Titusville and the closest is Playlinda beach, located along the Canaveral National Seashore, meaning National, meaning government-owned. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Preserve runs along the whole barrier island which does mean that it will never be developed, hopefully. Back to the beaches first, Pla
My anxious attitude is starting to shine and radiate out of me like any other glorious feeling of should've already happened. Did ya get that? Sooooo, lived in a house then I had a 31' motorhome, sold it, and bought a van. It is almost ready to be on a long trip road, but am I?! Again I am getting the feeling of wanderlust. Ready to be on the open road. Ready to be outta here and onto new. Orrrr am I ready once again to change my mind and path again? Maybe so and once again I am okay with whatever just as long as I'm happy. I may just keep my van and use it later on down the road after coming back from a sailing trip I also have always yearned for since I saw my first boat. Is it finally the universe giving me what I want and what I asked for? I have to believe fully that is the case and let my destiny and wanting to enjoy the rest of my life take over with only the want to be happy. I have said over and over again how much I love being outdoors in the bright sun or
Today I was talking to a couple of co-workers and we were discussing doing acid, mushrooms, ecstasy, molly, and so on. Well, both of the ladies I was speaking with were both very young. One was 18, the other 21. I was shocked that there was so much of all that still around and so plentiful. I seriously didn't think that acid was still being done as much as it is. I also didn't think that these ladies have done all that they have. But I guess that is me just judging too. I have met so many people over the years and it always seems that when I am talking to someone that a whole life story will come out. I enjoy talking to strangers and they seem to want to be friends, so why not? I really do wish I had a memory where I could remember every conversation I have had with all the people I've met ...ever. I embrace and cherish(at the time, obviously) the stories that I am told. I am going to try and document bits and pieces of stories or at least a tidbit of info of
