Moving on up...

"Good bye city life."

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. Because of all the visitors to my humble site my wife and I have become celebrities here at the local library. You would not believe the crowd that gathers around my terminal each day as I conduct my internet affairs. Folks around these parts are pretty excited about being on the map so to speak.

The notoriety that’s been generated by my blog has made our daily survival solicitations out on Main St. much easier. (Everyone wants to be part of a success story!) Donations are up considerably and as of yesterday we are now living the better life we've been dreaming of for the past five years.

"Be it ever so humble..."

This is our old efficiency apartment. We moved in here after the telemarketing firm I worked for moved out of town to India and did not offer to relocate us. Yes, it was hard times for awhile. Losing six dollars an hour puts a real hurt on a family’s standard of living.

Thankfully, I listened to the words of President Bush and began taking a computer class offered through our local Salvation Army center. It was there I learned about important computer concepts like, Windows 95, Word, and Internet browsing. I am still trying to figure out how all those hot shaved teen Asian girls are getting my email address. And, why are they so interested in an old geezer like me?

"A little slice of surburbia."

Now look at the two of us living in the wonderful land of milk and honey! Life is a whole lot better in suburbia. It is so nice to have access to bath and toilet facilities that are not attached to a gas station. This is a lot more sanitary, and the other day when I was taking a bath I found an old tire. I plan on turning it into a swing for our new baby to play on when he is born.

"Domestic bliss!"

Yes, the wife sure is happy living in the big new house. It is nice sleeping together again instead of one us in the front seat and the other in the back seat. It looks like once we get the battery charged we will have electricity too! Who would have ever imagined how much an introductory computer class could improve a life? I would listen to our president if I were you.

Well, I would love to tell you more about the exciting changes taking place in our lives but I've got to go and find my wife. I have not seen her since she left for her morning bath. I think she is getting spoiled with all these luxuries...

"Now, where did that woman get off to?"

Yep, it's confirmed. I'm addicted to your words already.

I live on the "under-employed" Waianae Coast of Oahu, the part of Hawaii that the tourists don't see. We have enough homeless of our own, but many from the rest of the island migrate here to escape the scrutiny and move-along policies of the more tourist-lucrative areas. I used to think that "white man's burden" was a heavy load, but it shrinks in the face of the misery I now see daily. It's hard to look at such devastating need when your own belly is full, even if it is more peanut butter and oatmeal than steak and fixings these days.

We all do what we can. Some remind us that it okay to laugh, even when the world is not such a wonderful place. The humor in such situations may seen obscene to some. It's a welcome relief to me. Mahalo nui loa. (thank you very much.)

Funny blog. I'll be back to read more. I used to spend a week every summer in Dayton w/family friends, when I was in high school and college.

Hi Dirk_Star ...

I meant to check out your blog earlier. I appreciate your comment on my blog last week. This entry was fucking hilarious. Windows 95 and internet browsing and young Asian girls ... ha ha

I've been retooling career-wise myself, back in grad school for the 12th time or something like that.

With my share of the Bush Tax Cut, I was able to pay for the tuition.

Would you still like that box of Lee Press-On Nails?

Thanks for visiting my site. A meme is a genetics word now used for internet games in which everyone follows along a theme. I have been enjoying the photo memes, see Photo Friday or Moody Monday.
