All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!



Changes happen all the time.  Sometimes the change is for the good and sometimes not.  Sometimes we don't have a clue what's going on.

That's where I find myself today.  I don't have a clue what's happening in my life.  Since I last posted about my life, a lot has changed.
  1. I lost my job last August 1st.
  2. The Dread Ilk steeped up in a big way to help find me work.  I never realized how many cyber friends were concerned and eager to help out fellow Ilk.
  3. My house sold and my wife left me taking the kids with her.  She says we should get back together but I have no idea if she is genuine about that.  I've not seen them since Christmas. 
  4. I was homeless for a time sleeping in my truck and cheep hotels.
  5. God gave me a new job making more money and with a higher position than I ever had before.  Literarily as I finished praying I received an interview for a opening that I never knew about or applied for.  Then I was offered the job inside of 30 minutes of starting the interview. Maybe that's worth a post.
  6. I had to leave Wyoming to live in a liberal cesspool. 
  7. I've been grumbling and complaining instead of being thankful.
  8. I've been wondering if the new job will be going away soon and if I should try to bail out before it does.
One thing is certain, things will change.  The other certain thing is that I better get off the blog and on my taxes.


  1. Hello

    Save as much money as you can, don't quit, save!

    It will do you well in the long term. And it probably won't hurt in the short term either.

    No matter which direction your life goes, having a bit of cash behind you will not go astray.

    The reason you've been complaining is because life is hard, setting a goal will help.
