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.
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
The manned rocket may fly high to the sky today. Let's celebrate and gather by the thousands to cheer on the future destroyers of Earth, us. Hooray!! Now don't get me wrong, I've been pretty ignorant over the years and was a cloned robot like the many others and gathered outside to witness a spectacular thing and said my ohhhs and awwwhhhsss without thinking about the damage that is being done each and every time something is flung through our ozone, our atmosphere, our protective air layer. Do you know how many satellites are in our atmosphere? Do you know how big the International Space Station is and how many trips it took to take all the parts there? Google that shit. Now. Stop reading and Google "how many satellites are in outer space"... there's a bunch. I appreciate the Awesomeness of it, I really do, it's cool. I've scheduled trips over the years to visit my mama in Florida around the shuttle and rocket launches and a number of them have been
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
