So... it appears this little video I was going to make won't be happening... To much stuff is in the way of progress right now...

So... Here's the textual version of what it was going to be:

Scene: Me, Sitting in a chair.

"Well friends... We are now here, in the twighlitght of a truly momentous occassion. What finally came to fruition during the week of January 19th, 2009... was a moment far too long in the making.

We all know the struggles that have been faced to get here... And the prices that have been paid for this moment to finally become a reality.

I know, especially for myself, that there were moments that made this event seem so impossible... So didfficult to believe that it would ever happen, let alone in our lifetime...

But, here and now, my dear friends, we can all join hands and proudly declare, for the whole world to hear... "

Scene: Outside, big green truck with motor running.

Truck then is shifted, and rolls backwards without hesitation. Truck stops, I get out of driver's door.

" The truck has reverse!!! The truck has reverse!!!!"

I dance like an idiot in the middle of the street....

Credits: This video is dedicated to my dear friends Steve and Laura, who kept wheels under my arse while I was truckless.. Chuck the Transmition God who brought life back to the "Green Beast"... and to all my FOD friends, who've tolerated my never-ending blog-bitching about my broken truck....

...... I thought it was kind of funny.... But anyways.... Let's just say the past few months have kicked the ever loving crap out of my spirit... to the point that the only things really making me laugh significantly are pictures like this...



And yes.... I do want to find this shirt....

I have a problem... When times get tough... and I get down... I hide in fantasies... Here on FOD... in things I write... anwhere I can to escape the reality of the bullshit around me...

The problem is... when I crawl into "Imagination Land"... and try to live by leaning on dreams and fairy tales... I neglect the mess that's piling up around me...

And sadly... Landlords don't accept "Awesome Pants" for rent... and bill collectors don't lower your payment from "I Love You's"....

I've got a lot of things I must get straight... now.... And I can't do that from here... on FOD...

So... I'm taking a departure from FOD....

I don't know how long I'll be... I must get my life straight before I spend another second where I actually want to be...

Don't worry... I'll be ok.... I'm tougher than I look... And I'll still post on my blogger blog from time to time...( www.sabre419shovel.blogspot.com ) ... although it might be a lot of serious, non funny posts... but then again... isn't that most of what I write here anyways? :-) ... and I have an email address on there too... If you really want to drop the occasional line....

And, for the moments it gets too rough to handle.... Lady Pilsner and Lord Jack will offer me a shoulder to lean on for a night...

I'll miss you guys while I'm gone... But this is something I have to do....

As Country Singer Clint Black put it... I'll just be "Off somewhere untangling my mind..."

So... Be good to one another... keep the funnies flowing... and keep a seat warm at the lunchroom table for me.... Because I know I'll be hungry for FOD time when things are good again....

Till then... Kudos... and Stuff.
