From the files of, THINGS THAT HAPPENED WHILE I WAS FARMING, THAT I INTENDED TO WRITE ABOUT, BUT INSTEAD GOT TOSSED TO THE WAYSIDE, WHILE I WAS TRACTORING MY ASS OFF........
Just to explain that. I have a small, but what I think is a fairly decent list of topics, that I had written down in my notebook over the summer. Some of them were relevant to specific situations, but as the situations passed by, I deemed those topics to be "out of date." However, seeing as I'm far from blessed with wonderful writing material on regularly scheduled intervals, and part of the bargain of you guys continuing to stop here to read what flows forth from my stagnant brain, (that is assuming you're still there? Hello...is this thing on?) as long as I keep writing, I'm going to be dipping into the well, as it were.
I had intended come up with some sort of fancy acronym for, THINGS THAT HAPPENED WHILE I WAS FARMING, THAT I INTENDED TO WRITE ABOUT, BUT INSTEAD GOT TOSSED TO THE WAYSIDE, WHILE I WAS TRACTORING MY ASS OFF........, so you wouldn't be reading a post, and thinking, "What the hell is he talking about something that happened 2 months ago for?" But that seems a little ridiculous at this point. And nobody's even going to know what TTHWIWF,TIITWA,BIGTTTW,WIWTMAO means anyways, not to mention, it's rather unwieldy. So henceforth, if you see a post that begins with, SHIT THAT HATH COME BEFORE!, You will know it's just an old topic, and I'm not really trying to pull the wool over your eyes or anything. I promise!
Back to the task at hand..........
You know, it just occurred to me, that it took 3 fairly significant paragraphs to set this whole thing up. And because the dog's birthday post, that is actually old news, is fairly significant and is probably going to include not less that 3 photos and a video, that if I begin it now, this whole thing is going to explode into a 3500 word nightmare, that I have no hope of holding you all through to the end.
Geeez.....what do I do now?
Um......OK! In an effort to get this train back on the tracks, here's what's going to happen.
This is no longer the dog's birthday post. That will happen in post #176. I'm just going to ramble a bit here to try to finish this thing off, and hopefully not lose any followers and get us all out the other side.
Coming up, over the next few posts, you can expect to hear about something interesting that happened during vacation with Young Son.
Also, I have a post about urinals. That's right, urinals. I had that one all planned out in my head, but then somebody else I follow did a urinal post, and had to mothball it so as not to break some unwritten blogger code of ethics. (there's such a thing, isn't there?)
There's the post about an upcoming winter vacation we booked.
And, I still have that post almost completely written about football, Jesus, and riding the light rail transit system.
So that's just a few. I apologize for this post. I really was going to write about the dog when I sat down here. Sometimes things just go sideways.
.........more often than not if you're me.
