A Birthday Present from President Trump?

The Fake News Awards on January 17? That happens to be my birthday! Now I have one more reason to look forward to it. Thanks in advance, President Trump! 🙂

A Simple Walk – So Exhausted

From my front door to the neighborhood Corner Store is almost exactly one mile. I walked there and back earlier this afternoon to pick up a 12-pack of diet coke and that little bit of exercise left me drenched with sweat (temperature was in the comfortable low 70s) and totally exhausted.

Man! If I ever needed incentive to lose weight and get myself into better physical condition, this is it!

Fighting a Losing Battle

A battle against fatigue, that is.

This past week hasn’t brought me many good sleeps. Most nights have actually been filled with more insomnia than sleep. Normally such nights are followed by good, restful naps the following day. But there were no naps this week. Instead, each day has found me more tired as the week has progressed.

Tonight, as I try to stay awake to watch my Saturday night TV shows, the eyelids grow heavy. I fear I’m fighting a losing battle against the fatigue that’s been building all week. Soon I’ll be moving from this recliner in the front room to my bedroom to watch the shows from the smaller set back there. And, being so close to my bed, I’ll be ready to put head to pillow whenever the tiredness wins out over the desire to stay awake.

Shall I Try Podcasts Again?

Years ago, on a blog of mine far, far away, I dabbled in podcasting for awhile. It was fun, and some of my listeners enjoyed it. Anyway, it seems all the cool kids are doing it these days, And the podcasting tools have become more advanced and easier to use. So I’m thinking about trying it again here, on Roscoe’s Story blog.

You may also notice that items over there on the sidebar have changed over the past few days. There may be some older sidebar items coming back and newer ones arriving over the course of the next several weeks.

I find myself in a “tinkering” mood. You have been warned. 🙂

Another traveling day

Last Sunday Sylvia and I flew out of San Antonio to begin our week-long vacation in Indiana to help prepare for and celebrate the wedding of my youngest granddaughter. It was a wonderful week, a wonderful visit!

Now we fly back home by way of Atlanta. Currently I’m enjoying the “free” wifi at South Bend International Airport while waiting for our first plane out.

Life is good. It is VERY good! 🙂
