Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone

I want to wish everyone within all of my circles and, even those that I have removed, a Happy Thanksgiving. (And you know who you are)

But in all honesty, I sincerely do hope that everyone does have a very pleasant day eating whatever lie before them, living or not. Just remember to either where pants with a belt so you can open them up and still hold them up or just go straight to the chase and wear sweatpants underneath your nice slacks so after you leave you can just take off her slacks and you’ve got your sweatpants on, ha ha.

All my love and well wishes to all of you and yours,

your friend and confidant,

Kip Vidrine

 

An Offline Weekend, Not For The Reason’s One Would Truly Hope For:

Good Mornin Y’all, (and this time it actually is morning, lol)

My time anyway. 

Alright, how many of you out there seem to keep having an ongoing battle with you ISP(internet service provider)? I have only really been hooked up directly with my ISP under my own account over this last month or so and it seems to me that whenever they have an “outage” or more accurately as they sort of put, a “surge” in the system, it surge’s through my modem and fry’s it. So much so that hitting the “reset” button on the back of the modem doesn’t even help. So I spent the whole weekend with no internet access for everything I have except the “non-wifi” setting on my cell phone. That was sort of okay, but trying to do everything I typically need to do on my cell was like trying to eat with chopsticks for the very first time, so after the whole weekend, I am STARVING, lol.

Anyhow, I do hope everyone had a good weekend, lol. Mine was actually just fine, nice and quiet until yesterday while I watched Seahawks play yesterday. Then my apartment got pretty loud as they SMOKED the Enemy,  the ATLANTA. WOOO-HOOO

Kendall my friend, you could not have said it any better. I agree with you completely, and not that everyone’s auto-biography is going to get published or even read by someone outside the family of the author, but who knows.
One thing I have been saying for many, many years is that; “From the moment we meet, I will make some sort of impact in or on your life, you may not recognize it, but I will be a thought in your future; as you will be in mine”

People have been shown in tv shows and movies about diary’s being kept, and predominantly by young girls.  When they are young and as they grow up into the people they are, some women still keep a diary going on into their adulthood. Today, with technology what it is, I am sure those that have kept diaries as a child has converted to using a computer to write in their; “journals”, we’ll say. There are even apps that one can get for free or purchase upgrades of diaries or journals where they sync with your contacts or facebook, something along that line. Some people are even just writing a Blog to keep their journals going everyday, now there is a leap of faith in “airing your laundry” out in public.

I must admit that this here, this is also my JOURNAL, if you don’t mind. Because about five and a half years ago, I thought I should keep some sort of account for what has been going on in my life. I must also admit, that not everything that I had written down that went on, has been written on here, my laptop. I have about four different hard copies that have activities that have gone on in my live over the time period I was referring to.

I am sorry, I do need to take a break now and then, my hand is killing me and I am feeling a ton of stress in my neck and shoulders. 

So I will pick this up again either later, or tomorrow. I love you all, those who dare to step into my world, lol. 

Goodnight Y’all,

Ciao 

Good Bloody Morning Y’all

No, I am not. So you can get that out of your minds, lol. Dirty minded people, who’d I get mixed up with, Lord Howdy.

Anyway, lol, I hope y’all slept well, I did, when I slept. You know, when I do go to bed, I lay there wondering, “how many times I am going to wake up tonight?” It is usually between 3 and 4, sometimes I noticed I am only asleep for maybe 30 to 45 minutes before the pain in my hand gives me a jolt and I wake up again. It doesn’t seem to matter what I take before I go to bed either. As it stands right now, I take 1 Methadone, a Gabapentin, a Percocet, and a Temazepam which is a sleep aid. I may just have to juggle some of the others around to where I may be take more pain meds when I go to bed. 

I just get so pissed off at the fact that after five years, there are more times in the day than not, that my hand hurts as bad as it did five plus years ago. The crushing sensation is still there; so picture in your mind if you will that a big ass’ four wheel drive truck rolls up on you hand. Now I’m not talking about on the lawn, oh no, not even in the driveway, because the driveway has smooth pavement. But look down at the surface in your alley, or any alley really. If it has anything, it’s possibly a rough blacktop or rocky cement, you get the idea. So now your hand, mine actually, is under the front wheel, and not only can it roll forward, but the wheel turns at the same time. This is what I call the meat grinder, so I have the weight of the truck, it rolling and then also turning at the same time over the top of my hand which is also laying on rough gravel, sharp edged, pointed mis-shaped rock. Now that is what it feels like with all of the medication I take throughout the day and night. Good times.

So if I blurt things out, as I have in the passed and I really do apologize for things I have said that may have freaked some of you out or even began to think that I had lost it. Well the truth is, I have lost it, so I am having to work with my life the way it is. I feel I am doing better only to the point where I know that this is not going to change, and “this” I mean by the pain, and that is without even touching anything, or bumping it against something. Hell, even brushing it against the linens in bed is what wakes me up so many times. So a good portion of the time I will wear a compression sleeve, to hopefully help the blood flow in my hand and I will wear a glove. Putting on and removing the glove and sleeve from my hand and forearm is like a death defying act for me, but once on or off, I’m ok. for awhile anyway. 

Please understand that if I do blurt out things like I had that day I was returning from another of my consultations, regarding surgery on my forearm, that it is mostly to just get something off my chest. Yelling in the car can go so far, but when I am alone as I have been, I need to talk to someone, and fortunately that day it was my dear friend Kristyn Winchell who chimed in and we talked constantly for days. Thank you love, I was not seriously going to do anything stupid, that is just not me, but I will say that needing a friend to just be there for me those few days after getting the news from that doctor of what choices I had, that was exactly what I needed. Seeing as how they will no get me any other sort of help with counseling or therapy to even talk about the crap I am dealing with, so with all my heart, Kristyn, I thank you so much.

Anyway, Now I am going to start putting my studio together so that I can start working on my artwork, WHOOP WHOOP.

I’ll take photos and post them on the pieces that I am working  with where I am at with them and where I end up at the end of the day. So I will catch up with you all again soon, hit me back either here or at any of my other sites here below my name. 

Until next time, 

Ciao to all,

Just ” ” that close to starting classes again

Thats right, just a couple of more weeks and I hopefully will be starting classes again. I already started today in fact, some workshops just to get me familiar with the program on answering questions, looking up material and info in the library. I am literally excited to be starting up again. Thank you to University of Phoenix, the online division of their classes and education program.

Not sure yet what I will be taking but I almost can bet that one will be a science class. Either way, I am going to knock them out of the park. I wish I had this sort of enthusiasm when I went to school the first time around, 40 some years ago that is. Well better late than never, right, Right…….

Anyway, off to my studies, the workshops I am taking are today, tomorrow and Friday. Then too I signed up for more on the 13th, next Wednesday, Thurs, and Fri. Whatever the class topic is about, I just have to have the assignment for each day finished. And the topics are based on familiarizing myself with topics I may be getting ready to take or need to just brush up on. 

So until next time, probably tomorrow, have a great evening.

Love you all,

Million Jobs Project US

Million Jobs Project US

Good not morning my friends, it is Noon O’clock Somewhere, lol

Listen up, click on the link I have hopefully attached to my page here and do just as I am asking, which is what is asked of all of us here in the/this US of/in this great America, change just a few of your purchases every time you go shopping. 

Now real quick, watch the video attached or click on this link below;

http://www.youtube.com/v/4FrGxO2Fn_M#action=share

Now that you have seen this video, do only what is asked of you and everything might get better, it should get better here in the US. Now let me ask those of you that see this, that are not from the US, you may not give a rat’s ass about helping the US, well that is fine, just look at the history of your country’s financial situation, or what ever situation your country may have come across that you could not handle on your own, did the US help in some way? Probably. Now we have products in this country from all over and around the world that we, as Americans purchase daily, annually even. Do we necessarily question where it came from, sometimes I am sure, but if it makes the decor of our house look better for it, of course, and so we will pay for it just so that our property looks better for it, or our clothing wardrobe will be in the Hip and Now, whatever it is, whatever the reason. So I am asking all of you from around the world, if you like something, who cares if it says “Made in the USA” on it, buy it. We buy your products. All we ask is that you change your buying habits what is asked of in this video.
Now for the rest of the us, here in the USA, instead of buying as it says in the video to just 5% or 1 additional item made in the US, I am going to make a pledge to ensure that I purchase at least half of my buying on American made products. If not more. And I personally, live in a very small town and my purchasing availability is limited to a Walmart, a Safeway, a Basha’s Grocery, a CVS, a single eye glass doctor, a Ford dealership, a Chevy dealership, a Napa auto parts, an AutoZone auto parts; Now if you have noticed or not, I did not list any food vendors. I believe those would fall under a different category in all anyway. So you see, for myself and the local community that I live in, our selection is considerably limited than some others. But that does not limit us from buying products online. This being the case, we should still ensure our purchases should be greater than 20/100 US made products.
Tell me what you think of the video and what your pledge is, We Need To Get More Jobs Back To The USA!!!
Thank you all for your time,
