nothing much

Wow! I got actual comments posted here. That is odd as it is unusual for me to have comments posted at the corner. I usually get an email or three, sometimes. Often times nothing at all. Now that is OK by me. I don't expect any sort of response. In fact, I don't really know if anybody reads this blog. Well, not quite true, some folks tell me they read it.
Either way, this isn't to gather any sort of "following". That would be the worst thing that could happen, my opinion. I am not a leader. I was a very good worker before the old back gave up. I did good work, and never had any problems with the quality of my work. That even held up for some hobbies I had and one I still have. I refer to my photography. No, it isn't "professional" quality photography, but I did not set out to be a professional photographer. I do it because I enjoy it and I do a fair job of it. It is a hobby and nothing more.
Same holds here with the old "corner". This blog is a sort of hobby as well. It is my little soap box where I can write about whatever I feel like writing about. This also explains why the new postings here are very irregular. I do not write on any sort of schedule at all. I only post here when I feel like it or if I read something that I want to comment on beyond just an email reply to the author of an article.
Why am I putting all this down today? Well, it is a long winded, my usual "style" of a reply to a comment posted here.
The nice person who posted the comment mentioned that my posts are not very frequent. Exactly. And it will continue to be so. At 62 I doubt that I am going to change much, if at all in any way. I don't see any "need" for me to post here even once a week. Sometimes I might do one a week, or even more. That has happened, but don't count on it.
I doubt that I have much to say that often. I also doubt that my opinion is needed on any topic with any frequency. Who the hell am I anyhow? Nobody of any great importance is who.
The same person mentioned not being in agreement with all I write. Great! To be totally honest, if you agree with all I write, you are, in my opinion, in need of some serious intervention. Again, I do not set out to get any following or group. I do not want to, and will not be any leader of any group of any sort. No way. I don't know where I might be going, so follow at your own risk. Better yet, just sit back and watch and laugh when I fall flat on my ass.
This blog is not to get anybody to agree with me either. It is where I post my opinions and ideas. I am not trying to get people to agree with me, just maybe to get people to think about the possibility of another view point.
One more comment before I end this for today. It was mentioned to me that maybe I should read the "prize" speech that Go-bomb-them gave the other day and then comment on it. I have thought about that and decided that there are already enough comments on that speech already. Also, those who have commented on the speech did a much better job of it than I could, so there won't be any comments by me on it. Sorry, I just don't feel like doing it. I will get around to reading it later this week. Right now, I just don't give a flying crap what he said. From what I have seen of it, the whole speech is just the usual political crap anyway. Why would anybody "need" my comments on it?
Well, if I don't make it back here before then, Happy Holidays" to one and all. Have a safe holiday season folks. Remember, do not drink and drive.
semper fi.
