Albeit as I get older it happens more than I care to admit, s senior moment, it slipped my mind or the old Navy term “Major Brain fart” But here I was on Saturday morning ready to send an article to Fearless Leader Bob, and when I opened my LiP Pending folder a blank page was staring me in the eye, I had nothing, zilch, Zippo, nada, wala. Need I go on? So I sneak over to the LiP Submitted folder and there were some 300 plus that had been sent in over the years but no new ones. Oh my!
I won’t lie and tell you that the thought didn’t cross my mind to pick an old one and try to sneak it by. But then I also knew that some eagle eye LiP reader would see through my ruse. Plus I have my own integrity to myself to live up to. Then there is the fact that if my grandkids ever found out, I’d have to bear the shame of that. But is it plagiary if you steal your own stuff?
But back to the burning question as to; “How did this happen in the first place? Because there has been Birthday Parties, regular lunch appointments, and many other day to day distractions but that’s just me justifying kicking sand over the original problem. I, in simple English plain ass forgot. But in my defense, I am retired! But here I am behind the eight ball trying to cobble something together to pull my fat from the fire. I know Bob Martin, will shrug his shoulder, power scratch his head, and wonder why the incoming “Word Press” bin is empty. I have no good reason, but I’ll send an e-mail (Non-classified) and try to explain that Sunday will be a better day.
Sir Bob requires 500 plus words in each article we submit, and I’m just over the half way mark. So anything I write after this will be dribble I’m trying to fill the page with….
My friends and I were trying to find a venue to watch the Super Bowl Monday morning, our requirements are simple, a TV, breakfast plus beer and boat drinks. See our needs are basic! Group Leader Tommy pointed out the Wild Orchid Beach Resort on Baloy Beach in the Philippines (Did you notice how I slipped that in there to make the story relevant to the LiP “Philippine “requirements?) so that location also met the requirements and a solid plan was on. So Colorado and North Carolina will meet at the Fifty Yard Line and with a coin toss the game will commence. I do understand that with democratic caucus that coin toss is how they think the game should end.
I will sit with a boat drink in hand, and ponder if it is legal to have a Super Bowl without New England there? But since our friend Loren Pogue (AKA Big “P”) is from Colorado! And the only person I know in North Carolina is my Ex-wife I’ll instantly be a Colorado fan vice anything the pundits say.
Now for the complete disclosure, due to the strong family values of this site the real name of this article is “Shit Happens” And I’ve well exceeded the 500 word minimum! (Oh Joy!!!)
