I use this site as my Journal.Thats why you see me post a ton of food pictorials,I come back 5-10 years later and have a good record of what i did,what worked,and failures too.This recent search found onions and celery is a November thing for the best prices,for example.Journals,I get it now.
Prices...so i have an idea where weve been,and where we are headed.Both in the micro and macro sense of world events,lots of insight for me.
So when you read some posts.... like why would he post what he did with motor mounts,who cares....thats why Im posting things.Its an online journal for us at the Spuds household.Hoping others share their small life moments,gives us idea's too.
Sure fascinating to see where we have been in the last ten years.I wonder how the Kids are,like MommaJeane,how is Riley now,10 years later.He is a man now,hope his childhood was awesome and as a young man he is well.I miss our old posters who have moved on as their lives changed.Its OK to change,dont have to be a homesteader to share our lives moments,all parts of it are welcome.
Agendas change and that is just the way of folk. And too, some are extremely thin skinned and are offended at things easily. I imagine I have done that now and then but it is the hooman condition. Meh.
Spuds puts himself 'out there' and is an interesting fellow and I enjoy his stuff. Not many of us see perfectly eye to eye but then where would that land us? Nowhere. It is 4:22 in the wee hours here so going for a short stroll outside with the cats and see what is stirring. Ta da.
Agendas change and that is just the way of folk. And too, some are extremely thin skinned and are offended at things easily.
You got it and in the right order.I suspect some folks are so busy the have no time for this.Others their lives changed so completely that we are no longer relevant to their situation.
We didnt get the farm,and its a good thing.We got what we were meant to get.We wound up with the mtn. cabin.And we tried to make that 'the homestead' and did.
I changed/expanded the mission here from homestead as a place to meet friends and say hi,maybe that wasnt what others wanted,they wanted canning and shepherding,that sort of thing?
It seems as our lives change we just drift away.I sure miss the folks too.Lots of nice folks came our way....and went unfortunately..This place is the Beverly Hillbillies theme song instead.....
Well now it's time to say good bye to Jed and all his kin. And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in. You're all invited back next week to this locality To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality
Hillbilly that is.
Set a spell, Take your shoes off.
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
Another 'failure' here is Im just not a promoter.I dont link us to a bunch of other blogs to get reciprocity.Either you come here or you dont,im not going to search the web for readers.
I dont care that my/our posts arent all homestead,that never was all of us,just part.So Ive changed in some 'agenda' but Im still just 'Spuds' at the end of the day.Warts and all,successes and failures.Im yam what I yam I guess.And its just fine. A fella with an opinion on most everything who wishes good things and nothing less for people who are 'Nice.' And want to say Hi.Thats it.That never changed.So Im still here.
I pretty much yam what I yam too And I don't offend easily and have a bit of trouble understanding that whole offended thing anyway. I've been married twice and about 4 months back my oldest daughter asked me how in the world and why I had married 2 men who get their feelings hurt so easily when obviously I don't have any feelings. (both my girls are just like me in that department). I have learned to chose not to be around people if I have to watch every word that comes out of my mouth.
Yes Spuds, good summation in that last post. I used to follow a couple other forums but gave it up as my 'phoney' meter was spiking. If you have to drag myriad other things to your place then maybe you don't have much substance to begin with. As BOF, I do not care to tip toe through a mine field of emotion and dithering over whether someone somewhere will be put off. I do try not to be a jerk but that is a matter of perception. Your mileage may vary on that one...
