Nothing like a thirty minute run and a cup of joe to start out the day….I’m too old for this shit….Eggs,bacon, toast next….Will piss the Doctor off, between smoking and eating habits….Time to grow up….(?) Fuck it…. Time to LIVE….
Missus is giving me the “Barracuda Look”….Probably deserve it….
Ah, yes….Robert A. Heinlein….Now theres an author for you….”Starship Troopers”: Written 1959, movie 1997 (Movie’s kinda cheesy…. But OK….) Mobile Infantry on the prowl throughout the universe….Takes you from “boot camp” at Camp Currie thru the Bug Wars (I’m most the way through the book….). VERY, VERY political, almost prophetic. A must read for you college political science types (Yeah, like I know a lot of them….) Going to read “Stranger in a Strange Land” next….
Think I will have Spam instead of bacon….eating healthier all the time ….
The young recruit is silly- ‘e thinks ‘o suicide.
‘E’s lost ‘is gutter-devil; ‘e ‘asin’t got ‘is pride;
But day by day they kicks ‘im, which ‘elps ‘im on a bit,
Till ‘e finds ‘isself one mornin’ with a full and proper kit.
Gettin’ clear o’ dirtiness, gettin’ done with mess,
Gettin’ shut o’ doin’ things rather-more- or- less.
