April 22, 2018, Prescott-
I am not given to talking so much about myself, but yesterday, I received a nomination from someone who has been friendly and supportive, of late: Amberley Griffin.
This is to invite me to list five things I like about myself. So, here goes.
First, I like my resilience. I have been able to bounce back from several mishaps, setbacks, or what not- from bankruptcy and the loss of my wife, Penny to having the brake linings of my car cut, a few years back and losing it in a ditch.
Second, I like my health. I have been able to maintain good health and a somewhat youthful energy level. It takes fastidious practices, including essential oil-based supplements, chiropractic treatments, power naps after work, regular work-outs and a fastidious attention to diet.
Third, I am fairly pleasant company. I get along well with most people and am doing better at not taking offense when people are standoffish or cross.
Fourth, I have a quick, though situation-based, sense of humour. I cannot produce jokes on demand, but things come to mind at the oddest of moments, while being apropos to a situation.
Fifth, I am a loyal friend, even to those who, for philosophical differences, I have not seen or heard for a few months, or years. If those people needed me, I would do the best I could to be there.
I am a work in progress, and so, while I have irritated some here, lately, bear with me. My whole is pretty good, overall.
