Cheering Myself Up


Well I never did resolve my faux pas (see below), so unfortunately there is no happy ending to the sad tale of this week. Still, life goes on and so I've been trying to think of thing to cheer myself up.
The first thing that springs to mind is my family. I've had a really nice day with Mrs. K and my three lovely sons, Joe (16), Marty, (14) and little Ted, (10). My family (extended family and friends) are the best thing in my life, and really, whilst I have them, I'm the luckiest man in the world.

Next, it's you guys out there. Junlee, J, Funnyman, Nebacha, Sonnyboy, Gnome, Koobs, Caleb, BJ, Mikey... (and anyone else I've left out)...You're my virtual penpals. What's so great about our friendships and correspondence is that unlike some of those 'real life' friends out there, we will never fall out or get mixed messages.

Though we can't go out for a beer, or play a few videogames together (with the exception of Nuno!) we aren't going to see each other enough to get into the horrible situation I experienced this week... And believe me, you mean a lot to this old bastard!

Next, I'm going away on holiday for THREE WEEKS tomorrow!!! For those of you who don't know, I have a static caravan in Wales. This is what my friends in the US would call a trailer. A complete vacation 'home from home'. It's on a site in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with amazing mountains, beautiful countryside and a fabulous coastline, historic castles, millenia old megaliths, gorgeous beaches where seals and dolphins swim. And I'm there for three weeks!

I'm taking my 360 and PS2, and Treamcast so there's loads of time for gaming! Then there is this wonderful video (below) that makes me laugh and laugh!

So all in all, the glass is ALWAYS half full, not half empty. Life goes on and good times are always around the corner. I love you my blogosphere bretheren. I'm also taking my laptop away so I'll still be keeping in touch with you all.

Really nice post! Thanks for the shout out and kind words! :)

Oh and to answer your question about my heritage...from what I know, I have Dutch, Swedish, and Scotch-Irish. I'm sure there is more, but that's all we know from my mom's side. My Dad's side, however, is a mystery.

Awww... have a great time Father!

Have a nice vacation FK!

Have fun in the Whale and mind the blow-hole.

blondejon said...

enjoy mate, thanks for the big up :)

Ice Koobs said...

Awww.
Thanks for including me in the list.
I love how its a home from home. But do you have room for all three consoles? The power lead for the 360 would take up a lot of room already.
Unless this your caravan is quite big.
But aren't caravans meant to be small? Ouch I'm thinking too much again.

Good thing you're taking the laptop with you.

Oh, and was it really Marty on that trampoline? Was he ok?

Oh yeah thanks for having me in the list (you saved the best for last) ;)

Keep your chin up, thats the attitude to have when things get gray. Have a good time with your family and let us know how it was.

p.s. I always assumed Britt's referred to minivans as Caravans!! Thanks for the input!

NebachadnezzaR said...

So, Father, what's up? Is that laptop working or what, cause I'm already missing your posts and comments. The blogsphere just isn't the same without you :)

So, Father, you alive or what? I'm starting to worry, really. Don't just disappear from the internets like our dear elderly (we miss you too, BTW).

Ice Koobs said...

Umm really where are you?
I know I've not update my blog in ages. But I do the odd post.
Did some zombies get you in Whales?
Yikes I'm freaking myself out here.

Hello again my dear chums and thanks for all your comments, they were lovely! Very cheering. Deitrix I'm so sorry for leaving you off the list! I have stated many times previously my love and admiration for you so I hope I'm forgiven! Rest assured I had a tipple for each of those peeps you mentioned in your uber comment! Thanks for that!!! :)

It's taking me a while to get back into blogging and posting, and my PC is very sick, so we're all sharing the lap top.

I'll get back into the swing of things soon!!!

Love you guys!
