Timely

i like to get things done in a timely fashion.  Not rushing or  lallygagging.  That’s just my M.O.   Of course this is not always the case due to distractions that are everywhere.  What I like and what actually happens are two completely different realities.

i am so pleased you stopped by to read this.   Thank you for your time.   So much social media out there it’s impossible to read it all.  For some reason you wound up here.   I consider myself fortunate if anyone reads anything I write about.  To be pleased is a wonderful thing.   A form of self satisfaction.

Except in the case “pleased to meet you.”   You don’t even know the person so how do you know you’re pleased.  This is just a formality rather than literally.  Occasionally I want to ask “how do you know you’re pleased to meet me when you don’t even know me?”  But that would be rude and put the other person on the spot which is not the point of an introduction.

i go through life blindly.

EVeryone actually does.

On a day to day basis anything can happen.  People make plans.  They may have a life plan. That’s fine. People need this for sense of control.   No one knows what is to come.  I’ve accepted that I walk blindly through life and accept what comes.   It’s better than fighting for something beyond your control.

Dacshunds are bred to hunt badgers. The hound follows a scent. I have a Dachshund.   He does not give up or forget a scent.   A chipmunk ran up the molding of our new shed.  This 20 pound dog started ripping off that molding to get to this chipmunk.  Luckily we were in the yard when it happened.  We were stunned when we looked toward the odd noise.   My husband ran over and grabbed him.  My dog did not want to let go or forget.  We blocked our shed off for 3 weeks.  Finally the attack on the shed to get to the problem animal was over.  I assume the scent finally faded and he moved on.  The most tenacious dog Is a Dachshund.   They will not give up.
