An old joke my mom told me when I was a kid:

A mother has twins, one of whom is a complete optimist and the other a complete pessimist. She takes the kids to a therapist who separates them. The pessimist was put into a room filled with toys. The optimist led into a room with horse shit. A half hour later, the therapist looks into the room with toys and the pessimist. He hadn't touched a one. "I'll break something," he said. Then the therapist looks in on the optimist, who's virtually swimming in the shit. "What are you doing?" the therapist asked. The kid says, "With all this poop, there must be a pony in here somewhere."

I spent part of the morning looking for my pony.


-- Because I had only started unpacking, I have much less packing to do.

-- My Hayward friends are all beautiful people, as were friends in my previous 11 cities.

-- It's warming up to 20 degrees above from 20 below. With wind, it's worse. You can't imagine how good 20 degrees feels especially with the sun peeking out.

-- I get to meet more people, bankers, Realtors, debt collectors. It adds to the cornucopia of humans in my life.

-- Like Gloria Gaynor, I will survive.

But it's tiring. My exhaustion level is through the roof. As long as I have one over my head.

I plan to sleep in Saturday morning, get a late breakfast and work for a while at the newspaper. Then I'll return home to pack until I'm exhausted. Thankfully, I have some Jack's pizza in my freezer. (I have a thing for that cheap stuff. When I was in college, a grocery store in Eau Claire regularly held sales where 10 Jack's pizzas cost $10. It's the taste of my youth.)

Peace and a pony unto all of you my brothers and sisters.


  1. Do you like to live alone? I don't. I do want my own private space, but also like to have someone to talk to sometimes and help with various routine things we can share doing things we each like that the other dislikes or can't do. I always was able to find such roommates. If you do that, you will more than solve your problem. This may turn out to be a blessing. Keep up your good work. Find a roomie, unless you like being a hermit. Good Luck. Better yet, make your own good luck.

  2. Quote: -- I get to meet more people, bankers, Realtors, debt collectors. It adds to the cornucopia of humans in my life.

    B.S. Face the facts. None of these people you mentioned will solve your problem. You're a smart guy. Don't you see why? However, there will be some person who will solve your problem. See my other comment. I do this to try to help you find your way. I have had people do this for me in the past and it has been very helpful. Hope this helps you. If not, best wishes. I'm sure you'll survive. Or not.

  3. I love the toys and shit story, which I also heard as a child. I'm sure you will find your pony, as the record of this blog shows how you've met every challenge that's been given to you. Good luck, and b/t/w, I agree about finding a roommate!

  4. My partner (38) recently decided he was no longer happy in a relationship with me. To exit the relationship he started dating this other person who is way older than him (15 years) and specifically told me he was doing it to ensure there is little chance of us working out whatever problems we had. All of this is happening before my very eyes as we are still working out the split of the family home and other details.I have been grieving for a month now because the relationship lasted nearly 11 years. I am trying to be supportive rather than disruptive however I feel she uses my attachment to our 4years daughter. On several occasions he would leave her with me just so he can be with the new girlfriend and be happy . I understand he shouldn't wait for my grief or my permission to move on with a new partner but the fact he does it so soon and so openly is really hurtful to me. I am even considering moving to another city and cutting all ties to her and my daughter just to escape the pain. I recently found out how they were planning to raise our daughter and are making arrangements for this without even consulting me. I am completely lost but since I contacted Dr Peter my Lovers came back to me without any delay. contact Dr peter if you want your lover back in peace and joy contact him via email or WhatsApp +2348162247974 or Facebook page blogspot:
