Ready to go back to work yet?
Fuck ya, I am!
I love my job – writing stories, writing nonfiction, writing on this blog.
So I can’t wait for Tuesday to get started up again, but really, I do all kinds of writing at all kinds of times and on all kinds of different days.
Shit, that’s for people that hate their jobs.
If you love what you do…what do you need a weekend for, or a vacation?
I don’t, but I suppose many who read this site are still stuck in the 9-to-5 rat race.
Really, you can’t develop any in-demand skills that will allow you to break out of that?
How about some entrepreneurial ventures that allow you to make you own money, on your own terms, and perhaps even while you’re sleeping?
That’s what I’m talking about, and I hope you’ll take the necessary steps to make that happen.
A lot of it comes down to figuring out what you're better at than anyone else, and what you like to do when you're not 'working.'
So I hope you can think about that as the summer goes on.
Maybe I’m just feeling confident. I’ve been reading The Power of Positive Thinking, mainly because I know it’s one of the books that Trump cites as a big influence on him.
As you know, I read Trump’s Art of the Deal a few weeks back and I’m just continuing along.
Something else that’s making me feel good was the day and a half I spent up at Flathead Lake.
Here are some images.
Yeah, I don’t really like vacations so I’ll find some kind of work to do, like chopping wood.
Damn, I wish I had a fireplace or wood-burning stove or something.
I wish I had a big pile of logs in my backyard that I could go out and beat and cut and hack at a few times a day.
Man, that gets the frustrations out. It also builds the body’s muscles.
And hey – those wood ashes are great for sprinkling on your garden so the plants eat up all those good essential vitamins and minerals they contain, which then go right into your body.
Our grandparents used to do it – it’s just one of the reasons they lived into their 90s.
No one lives that long anymore, mainly because we’ve forgotten how to eat and exercise.
Oh well – I’ve discussed all this before in the healthcare section of this blog.
Alright, so what else is going on?
I left my computer at home on Saturday when we went up to the lake so I missed a bit.
One thing I noticed upon coming back yesterday was that a lot of the political types were posting images of Team Bullock at the Livingston 4th of July Parade.
After that I saw Dirk Adams mention that Bullock was there, but Gianforte was not.
Well, that started it.
Or did it?
I mean, Gianforte put up images of himself and Steve Daines at the Livingston Roundup Parade.
Are there two parades in Livingston or is this just political silliness?
And if we want to play the game of ‘who’s been more places and shaken more hands,’ let’s play it.
Here’s Gianforte at…
- Red Lodge yesterday
- Another one of him at the Arlee Powwow on July 1
- Another one of him meeting with businessmen in the Flathead on June 30
- One meeting with timber company workers in St. Regis on June 29
- And one more of him looking at storm damage in Fallon on June 28.
So really…did you want to play that game? And to take it a step further…who in the hell gives one hoot what Dirk Adams has to say?
Oh, I guess we should get in the habit of kissing his ass since he’s a rich out-of-state lawyer that moved here and wants to help ‘make our lives better.’
You can find all of those images and more on Gianforte’s Facebook page.
Steve Bullock, on the other hand, has not updated his Facebook page since last August and his business/politician page has a few posts this month and his campaign page has a sparse posting schedule.
I think it’s clear which man wants to be governor more.
Still, I did see that Bullock was in Butte today and his staff made sure you knew about it:
Despite that, no one much gives a shit about campaign appearances during the first couple days of July.
Ha, social media…that’s not where voters are – they’re out at the lake!
Anyways, today I headed to Butte for the 4th of July and we lit off a ton of fireworks in the afternoon.
It was fun and now it’s back to ‘work.’
How 'bout you...anything exciting happen, or just beers and the TV and not much else?
