On this, my 300th blog post, I want to thank all the readers who joined me on this trip.

I thank you for all the sweet notes and cards and support and sympathy.

When the journey began, I merely wanted to have something to do each day. My previous blog had 55 pageviews -- 45 of which were mine. 

Frankly, I don't know why you've continued with me, particularly in the "sad sack, woe is me" times but thank you, thank you, thank you.

I had been thinking about how to wind this all down at some point. Perhaps when my rental was furnished, I would take a video of home and share it and say goodbye.

Or when I could purchase a grill, something that always makes me feel at home.

Maybe my daughter -- who reports she's doing great in Hollywood -- would interview me for a final post.

But then the trip has added this latest blip, where in three weeks I'm putting my stuff into storage and moving back into a hotel. (This one will not have prostitutes or drug dealers next to me. It is, as the Three Stooges used to say, a classy joint.)

One pony is I continue to work and love my job.

Nearly two years ago, other journalists interviewed me about my predicament and the most common question was "What do you want people to know?"

I always said understand the brittle nature of our economy. You can be a hard-working, job-loving employee and still end up in difficult circumstances. Sadly, I moved too much over the years, which is expensive, failing to understand the importance of stability. I have dear friends in all of the 12 cities I've lived in and hundreds of other friends in other places. I truly love so many people I couldn't count -- largely because I have the math skills of a word guy.

Thanks folks and I'll keep telling the story of the Homeless Editor.

Peace and stability unto all of you my friends and brothers and sisters.

  2. This will no doubt sound a little weird Rich... heck it sounds weird to me. I read your above entry and for whatever reason, what enters my mind is that final scene in Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn. The crew is gathered solemnly around the casket/torpedo shell(???) containing of the recently departed heroic Mr. Spock. I can't recite it verbatim and I'm not going to try and watch it just for accuracy's sake, but Capt. Kirk is eulogizing is closest friend and he says something to the affect that 'of all the souls he's encountered in all of his travels... his [Spock's] was the most ....human'
    Again, I don't fully understand [if at all] why this particular illustration should come to mind. I suppose it probably has something [or everything?] to do with what Paul Harvey would've called 'the rest of the story'... that being of course that even a fatal case of radiation poisoning wasn't enough to keep the enigmatic Vulcan down... he bounced back. This certainly isn't the end and by all indications... you haven't decided to pack up your typewriter just yet as regards this blog, though no one could begrudge you for taking a break. Thank you for sticking it out, for taking us along for the ride, and enriching each of our lives along the way.
    Keep keeping on friend...Live Long, and Prosper

  4. HACK VANISH RECOVERED MY LOST 19.78 BITCOIN AND AIDED ME FIX MY CREDIT REPORT

    In Dec, 2021, I invested the sum of 19.78 BTC with a fake blockchain impostor I met online, all the money I had saved up since 2014 got stolen just within a Month, my whole life almost crumbled, to crown it all my FICO score was so bad that I couldn't even afford securing a loan to help my kids, but everything became better after I joined a forum online where I met people testifying about HACK VANISH, a hacker who has been helping thousands of people all over the world. I decided to reach out to him via the following contact shared on the platform Text/Call/WhatsApp: + 1 (747) 293-8514, Email: hackvanish@ gmail. Com, they responded and requested for all necessary information needed to aid my JOB, to my greatest surprise my bitcoin was recovered and my credit report fixed, FICO score was boosted to 783 across all 3-credit bureau's, all negative items cleared just within 8 days. I can't stop expressing my profound gratitude to this great team of hackers, I strongly recommend them to anyone in need.

  9. Month's ago, a fellow approached me on Whatsapp, Introducing me to some type of investing, Although I have heard of Crypto currency, Bitcoin, Ripple, and few others, I basically don't know how it works, But I was somewhat convinced by this fellow to invest in their trading platform, after giving it a thought, I decided to invest in this trading platform, I invested about $20,000 during the first month of my Investment, My profit soar high to about $50,000 and I decided to withdraw my funds, hoping I can re invest with my profits. I was unable to withdraw and was asked to make deposits after deposits for me to withdraw. I figured out it was a scam and decided to get my funds back, It wasn't an easy task, I was defrauded by some recovery companies too, I was at the verge of giving up when I decided to give my luck one more shot, I reached out to one of the email I had seen Online as an expert to recover funds, I mailed: Jody Hacklord, an expert recovery team and they were absolutely helpful, with the help of these experts, I was able to recover all my invested funds from the trading platform and my profits included.

  13. BITCOIN RECOVERY IS REAL!!!
    ( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job ) This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn't succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help persons like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn't. He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir...you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..
