    …and it was a tough day in the sun, with high humidity and a few moments contemplating how many useless excuses of humanity waste resources.

    And I went and came in to work…….

    Six more years.

    Whenever somebody throws that sappy sixties slogan at me, “today is the first day of the rest of your life!” I respond with “yeah, and it’s the last day of your life so far.”

    Then, while their earnest face is screwed into a twisted knot of incomprehension I casually make my escape.

    ^ “Today is the first day of the rest of your life!”
    So will tomorrow, kid. So will tomorrow.

    Hey, you want a first-class whine?
    Listen to Will Shakespeare’s Laird of the Sith whine:
    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing
    ~ Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

    Life is coming towards me at the speed of sixty seconds per minute.

    DougM (#6) Sounds like a good report on Obama Rex’s last speech.

    Here’s another loony quote that’s supposed to be “illuminating”:

    “Right now a moment of time is passing by! We must become that moment.” Paul Cezanne

    ..because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.
    Exactly – all we have is our time on this earth. Most of us work(ed) 40-60 hours/week, get paid money for our labor and knowledge, which we then exchange for things we need or want.
    Then along come the @($%($#^$ Progs and take half of it, skim some off for themselves, and give the rest to deadbeats whining and sitting on their worthless asses.
    The way I see it, the Progs have been and still are stealing a big portion of my life and yours through income taxes, and that, my friends, is a crime.

    What Dick said.

    To which I add:

    I’ll probably have to work until I’m too old to enjoy any retirement, thanks to the progressives. but people much younger than me are living my retirement right now on public assistance.

    But where I’m going to end up, THEY won’t be there.

    I do not measure days. That is like flying while keeping your eyes on the fuel gauge. As I get older, I sometimes like to reflect on my experiences, mostly good experiences. And I use my experience as a guide for planning ahead, toward some things I have to do and other things that I want to do.

    While I recognize that I am older, it causes me to adjust to the realities. I accept that life has an end for all things. I consider it normal to not know when. In 1988, I was unconscious for 2 weeks due to an aircraft accident. It was like a deep sleep where I did not dream; or have any awareness of anything. When I woke up I had no memory of being unconscious. I think my ending will be like that, except it will be timeless.

    And my Mastercard balance will also be timeless, so fuck off…

    I exchanged two hours of it for a self-serving data-dump substituting for meaningful dialog in a fucking conference call.

    And no, even though the last of my two college roommates retired this year. Due to a divorce, two college educations, & confiscatory taxes, I’ll have keep doing it until I can’t.

    Damn, what a whiney-ass cry-baby. At least you have a job. STFU.

    Never mind me. I’ll just continue this conversation in my head.

    Dick nailed it and due to some piss poor decisions I will be working until I’m dead or so crippled I can’t move.

    This thread needs an upbeat comment right about now.

    My day will consist of computer games, jamming with my band, and beer.

    Yeah, DAWG!

    Today mine will consist of taking 11 other motorcycle enthusiasts on a 300+ ride through some beautiful Oregon back roads, through Astoria and back through central Washington. If we do it right it will take all day.

    That sounds to me like a pretty good exchange of time.

    And what blindshooter said.

    Going to watch one of my old band cronies race this evening.

    Time off coming after Labor Day. Yee-haaa.

    Yes, indeed, I am thankful to have a job and be able to support the family. And in a very specialized skill area. Thanks be to The Good Lord for that.

    Today is given, and it dribbles away.
    With care and a little luck, you’ll be given another one.
    (What? No, dunno why. Well, okay … forty-two.)

    Okay, reality.
    I’m doing today what I could’a/should’a done yesterday/week/month, but I had something more important (at the time) to do.
    Now, a deadline makes this task important enough to spend part of today doin’ it.
    I prefer to call it management by evolving priority.
    IOW …
    A procrastinator’s job is never done.

    I currently exchange a lot of the moments of my life for sitting on the streets of a popular Florida tourist city playing and selling didgeridoos and little one string electric guitars that I make. I don’t know if I am retired, waiting to decide what I want to do when I grow up or if I am now considered permanently unemployable because of 40 years of self-employment and business managers fear that I might have an original thought! All I do know is that life is worth living!
