I Know You All Are Coming Back Here....

...looking for posts, but it's pretty mundane right now.

I work.
I earn.
I sleep.
I wake.

Blah, blah, blah...

One milestone though...for the first time in quite a while, I paid my own rent. I know that is something people do every month. But for me, it is a big step forward. And it feels really pretty good.

I have had roof over my head since March 24th, but for one night I went back to Budd Lake for a wedding. So it's not that I have been back in The Sovereign Conversion Van Of Wonders. But today, I paid my rent!

Means a lot to me. I said...mundane.

I'll post more after the weekend.

And thanks for checking me out.

Settling In....Welcome To Dallas, Texas

I really like it here! It just has a good vibe to it. Plus...IT'S DALLAS!!!!

Huge difference from where I had been the last month or so. Let's say...the place was "colorful". For example.....
The "Butterfly Tattoo" commonly called a "Tramp Stamp". Ladies, think twice before you get one of these. Looking at this young lady's physique it seems fine. However...

There was one woman where I last stayed who got this done when much more....ummm....let's say she had it done more than a few buffets ago.

She was sitting on the 2nd level on the edge and her sweats were...lowered...due to her position. Now her tat looked like....

MOTHRA! Of Godzilla fame.

Just a heads up for your future. You're welcome.

In other events, work is moving along nicely and I expect to have a steady income beginning this week. That's when my first paycheck hits my checking account. Yes...a checking account. I started it with 20 bucks so I had a place for direct deposit.

Right now I am in an Extended Stay kind of place with staff that couldn't be more friendly and personable. Kitchenette...nice bathroom. TV sucks though. What's odd is when I was some 50 miles away from Dallas, I could get reception of all the TV stations in this market. Now, in North Dallas, reception is spotty.

Go figure.

I hesitate to say this, but I feel more optimistic than I have in quite some time. My boss is great! The product, FiOS is the best you can get and I am a HUGE fan. Plus I am learning the territory, the north, south, east, and west of things.

SIDETRACK: Seems Texas roads make my GPS have a stroke!!! Many times it has been as much as a mile behind to a mile ahead, of where I am at that moment. I need it to update because there has been a ton of road construction going on through here. So some exits and such are slightly off track.

When I have some time and extra gas, I am going to explore around a bit. I am considering doing the occasional "Vlog" (video blog) and see how that works.

Anyhow....the Giants kicked ass today and I have a roof over my head. The weather here these last two days has been....Jersey-esque...which I am not pleased with. Actual frost warnings tonight, but I am told that is not the norm.


All that "Seasons" bring are hours of leaf raking and snow shoveling.

THANK YOU ALL for your support, prayers, and good wishes. I did not do this on my own. I had help..and lots of it! I am, indeed, blessed.

Until next time....

Oh..and the best part?              I'M IN DALLAS!

PEOPLE OF TEXAS: I Need Some Help Here...

EDITED TO ADD: I'M IN DALLAS!!!! Well, just call me Scooter Ewing! More to come....

EDITED TO AD: Looks like it's going to be Plano. Going to check them out and decide in the morning.

My work is taking me to Addison, Frisco, Allen, etc. area. I am looking for a C H E A P motel and I need it by tomorrow. A no name is fine, as long as no dead bodies have been discovered in the place for at least a year. Please SHARE this so as many as possible see it. It is being paid for, I just need to find one.

Thanks in advance
