I am a bit stiff today. I ended up walking about five miles on Saturday hanging out with a friend visiting a few places that are new to me. Then on Sunday I rode my motorcycle from Airdrie to Lake Louise, more specifically Morraine Lake, which is at least a 400km round trip. If you are going to ride a motorcycle on a weekend you might as well pick a good destination. The aches and pains are a reminder that I am getting older. They are also a reminder that I got out and did something with my weekend.
There is a simple reason why people want to win the lottery and that reason is bills. Some days it feels like it gets to be a bit much with all the expenses one has to face. I have money to pay my bills but I would like not having to think about them. Some days I am sure it costs me money just to wake up in the morning.
I recently discovered that I have to check the blog for comments. I was wondering why I was not getting email alerts that people were leaving a comment. I thought maybe no one was commenting, which does happen. It turns out people were commenting, Blogger just decided to no longer inform me. Google changed some stuff with Blogger which I find annoying. When I have time I will try to figure it out.
Busy lately. I had to do some course work for my job. We also have less staff these days and the same amount of work, which means I have had to take on more. Personally I prefer to do as little as possible at my job. Unfortunately many times I find myself doing actual work.
Divorce proceedings. Lots of time where nothing happens and I feed my lawyer money ahead of time so I have funds to cover when something actually does happen. I have a trial date for November 5th of this year so it should be resolved before the year is out. I have some conflicting thoughts about the whole thing. I have not been in contact with her since she had me served in March 2014 nor do I have any desire to contact her. I do want this resolved however I never thought I would be one of those guys who ended up being divorced. Over twenty years that ultimately came to naught. There might be a Country song somewhere in this that someone else has already written. As an aside, when you go through certain experiences you understand some of the songs on a different level than when you first heard them.
As for Country music very few people that I associate with listen to it. It makes it a little difficult to find some new stuff if no one I know listens to it. The radio is no help, they do not take a chance on anything interesting. There is a lot of great stuff that I have recently discovered by chance. I have downloaded stuff by Stonely LaRue, Cody Canada, Wade Bowen, Uncle Lucius, Jamey Johnson, and Cody Jinks. I am trying to get my hands on some Whiskey Myers. The Canadian version of Itunes does not list the album I want. I might have to get it by other means.
Enough of this. It is a hot day and there is beer in my immediate future.
