Call Me Old Fashioned But I Love the Newspaper!

It az republicsaddens me when I take a peak down my street in the wee hours of the morning and see only one newspaper. It’s The one on my driveway I pickup after a grueling 12 hour night shift.  It lays there like a drunk single old man in your almost empty local dive bar.  While that newspaper is very lonely, I will always be willing to rescue it from its depressed drunken stupor.

I find it harder to explain to people what I love about the newspaper.  In today’s day and age of free flowing real time electronic information, it no longer makes sense to most Americans.  But to me, its a nostalgic tradition like Apple Pie and Fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Reading the newspaper with a light breakfast and a cup of coffee for me is a sensory tingling experience. Maybe I am exaggerating a bit but I really like the smell of a freshly printed newspaper.  It’s like a flowery nose of a new world Cabernet.  Or the smell of a wet creosote bush after a desert monsoon shower.

Even if I only read one or two articles it always seems worth it to me to pay for this old beat up car feel.  It’s a classic Corvette with plenty of miles still left on the grungy old engine.  Just like the newspaper, it makes your hands dirty but still feels nostalgic.

I gotta end it here as I didn’t get a chance yet to read one article today.  I was too busy on YouTube!  🙂

Vlog Kicks Blog!

kickMy last post was quite awhile ago and it was all about transforming thoughts into actions.  That was the salt and the curse words were the pepper.  One of those actions I wanted to take was to start more actively working on my YouTube channel (if you go there don’t laugh too hard).  I have done that but it accidentally kicked my blog to the curb.  Luckily, I a have circled back to scrape it up off of the pavement.

If you have stayed a follower here I greatly appreciate you sticking with me.  Don’t give up on me just yet.  I have hit these dry spells before and always seem to find a way to overcome them.  I am one step closer to being where I want to be in my dream life.  Thanks for continuing to enjoy the ride with me.  Until next time, stop thinking and start doing.  Consume less content and create your own content instead.
