Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

Pets On Planes

Dog dies in overhead bin.

Hamster Flushed

Those two stories involve airlines telling their guests to handle pets in a way that causes that pets demise.

Here's the thing, you as a human being have a choice. You have free will. If you were told that the animal could fly and have followed the rules that were given to you and then upon arrival things change, you challenge those in charge to make it right.

If they refuse, get off the plane or don't get on the plane. Why should you be forced to do something that you will regret later, knowing that what you are about to do is not or was not what was agreed to before getting to the airport.

Would missing that flight be an inconvenience? Most likely.

What would the trauma cost be of the lots of a pet's life?

All Was Lost

For the first time in almost forever I have been able to get on this infernal machine to browse the world wide web.  In other words, the truck is in for a long overdue PM.

I made a declaration at the beginning of the year that I would post daily, as you can tell that was a false promise.  Between driving (and usually being getting shutdown late), spending time with my lovely girlfriend, there just wasn't that much time to go about posting here everyday.  It also doesn't help that coming up with content that was meaningful every day was akin to opening the door to a darkened room and trying to find the faintest of light to spark that tiny wordsmith.

Anywhoo, enough excuses.

So most of my postings lately have been through the blogger app on my phone, easy peezy.  Just trying to get that little keyboard to work quick enough with my thoughts is taxing at times.

Oh, yeah, excuses.

So I fired up this computer, went into blogger and nothing.  This blog was not listed.  AllIwantisfreedom.com sent me to GoDaddy.com.  This was not good.  Blogger help was not of any help.

Terror was creeping in, along with a feeling of complete helplessness.

I found the answer.  I was using the wrong login email.

I feel like a tool.

Last Jedi

Finally watched "The Last Jedi" and I don't consider it the best, I did like it.

I have issues.

There are spoilers.

1. Admiral Holdo doesn't tell Poe the plan. Poe secretly sets in motion his own plan that possibly gets more people killed.

I understand the Admiral didn't need to tell Poe but what difference would it had made to not tell him? If he was made aware; along with the rest of the fleet, people would have been more trusting of just being bombarded by the First Order knowing they were heading to a base.

2. Hyperspace tracking.

This wasn't explained completely. Was there a device on the first ship the First Order was tracking or something else? If it was a device, just turn it off or destroy it and jump. If they were tracking some sort of residual trail from the jump, that changes things.

3. Rey and Kylo mind link.

Snoke didn't have a hand in this. He could read minds but creating the link wasn't his doing, he was just using that information to keep Kylo in step and try to turn Rey.

4. Luke.

Not what I was expecting from the Jedi but I was not upset with him either.

For the next episode, the old guard is dead. General Leia will die off early in the movie seeing that Carrie Fisher has passed.

I still think that Rey and Kylo are brother and sister. Just like Luke and Leia; Rey and Kylo were separated at birth and grew up apart. Kylo learned the ways of the Force and Rey learned to junk.

Daddy's Love

"Where are we going daddy?", I asked from the backseat of the car.

"Don't talk honey, ok?" Daddy said. His voice was flat, cold.

I stared out the window, watching the landscape roll by covered in the fresh snow. I remember liking playing in the snow last year with my brother but Daddy too him to live with Grandma. I wanted to go with them to meet Grandma but Daddy said it wasn't time yet so I stayed home.

We arrived and I start running through the snow just giggling and tossing the snow into the air and watching it fall back to the Earth.

Daddy was focused and ushered me along. "Just a little further, honey."

It was cold.

We stop walking, Daddy adjusts my jacket and hood, like a good Daddy.

"It's time," Daddy says. He turns me around and gives me hug.

Daddy doesn't let go. It gets uncomfortable. Tighter.

Can't breathe..

"Why? Daddy?" I thought.

I blacked out.

I woke up standing alone, wearing my favorite dress from the summer. I don't feel the cold anymore.

Brother is here and Grandma.

This is going to be a struggle to put something in this space ever day, let alone putting something here that is meaningful, thought provoking, etc, etc, etc...

Add to the fact that I'm slightly under the weather, sneezing, aching, some congested, does not help in any of these matters.

You don't care though.

So heartless.

You only want the brain rot that I put forth in here.

Okay then.

New Year's Resolution

It's cold outside.

Like one degree cold here in Illinois.

It's been a long while since posting, not much going on. Celebrated five years with my gf in November. Driving truck for two plus.

Even inside this warehouse, it's still cold. Warmer than outside but my feet are frozen.


I've neglected this for too long, I'm going to make some sort of post each day this year; excluding yesterday unless Doc pulls up with the Delorean to set things right.

So yeah.

Happy New Year and stuff.
