I think it's fair to say that this last year has left many scratching their heads looking for something to be thankful for. For me, it's been the craptastic economy in the San Francisco Bay Area, the fiasco of relocating to Seattle, Washington (And what looks like the return to San Mateo, Ca) and all the devastation that has left in its wake, and the fall out from some social issues.

But for the most of us it's been the passing of many big names in music and the arts, along with the insane, did-not-see-that-coming end to the 2016 presidential election, Standing Rock, race issues, and world affairs. And almost no one is getting out of this year unscathed financially... well, except the rich and those tech fuckers. (And I'll admit tech is starting to feel it at some levels and in some sectors.)

HOWEVER... (There's always an "however".)

If you're reading this, that means you're still substantial in the department of having things. And, we can all be mindful, and thankful, that's there's going to be a tomorrow. So, with that in mind, let me wish you all the best today, and to the end of the year. May your blessings be countless and your tummy ill from poor dinner choices.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to console myself at a local pub. Have a good one.

(Is... is 2016 over yet?)

Heart-felt Words

After two years, now, of living with my heart situation I guess I've become pretty accustomed to it and don't pay it any never mind outside of the occasional impact to my diet or physical output; minor that they are.

However, as normal as it may be to me, it's still certainly not normal to others; specially when these others, such as my friends I'm staying with here in Seattle, have already had another friend nearly die on them after having a heart attack. So I guess, from the other room, it's totally plausible she'd hear "OH MY HEART!"  and be... concerned.

But I've totally reassured them that I'm really okay, and that if anything does go wrong, it'd be quiet, and they'd probably just find my dead corpse the next morning in my bed. You know, because I appreciate their concern. (But really, I do.)

Pocket Full of Posies Chapter 1 page 24

Wow, the dress code at some bars, I tell you...

Your friendly neighborhood Conductor here, letting you know that we've reached the end of Chapter One of Galactic Gun: The Adventures of Justin Bailey in Pocket Full of Poses; "Turn of a Friendly Card". Our story will be stopping at this station for an extended stay as we refill the tender and top off the boiler. However, there will be some random editions of Stuff: The Bio-Comical Life of a Would-Be Cartoonist to fill in the time until we get rolling, again, with the crew of The No.7.

See you in December for more Sci Fi goodness!
