She's Come Here To Sing.....

The saying goes, "It isn't over until the Fat Lady sings".

Hopefully, this will be the last ever post in my blog. I'm not homeless anymore...and God willing, I'll stay that way.

By and large, it's been an interesting chapter in my life. Exposed to a lot of things I never thought I'd be. Met MANY really nice and wonderful folks....ran into very few, ardent detractors...some quite vile. As I compose this, I am debating whether to expose them or not...we'll see.

Last month my apartment was robbed...took my MacBook and some other items. Fortunately, I had renter's insurance, but with a high deductible. When you think about how long I lived in The Conversion Van Of Wonders and some motel rooms of questionable repute, ironic it happens when I am in an apartment, proper.

Go figure....

This month has been a tough one. As of this writing, I have just over $2.00 to get through December. I have food...I buy that at the beginning of the month..and hope it will last until January. Christmas is a non-starter, as was Thanksgiving. But I know where I live night after night and it's warm!

Just got through a really nasty ice storm. From what I am to understand, that's common here in Texas as opposed to snow. Frankly, I can do quite nicely with out either, thank you!

And for the last few days, I have been sleeping like never before. I am hoping I am not coming down with Mono...that would REALLY suck!

As far as Mickey Mass goes, haven't heard from him lately. I put off my biopsy wanting to be put on Anti-Fungal meds and then take a couple of pictures to see if Mickey has left the building. Reason being, in the tests done ahead of the biopsy, I tested positive for Aspergillus which is quite common when one has compromised lungs and had significant doses of Prednisone over an extended period of time. Before I get poked and a bit of myself extracted, let's try something a little less invasive. However, my lung guy has not gotten back to me in over 3 weeks.

Guess I'm on my own for now.

In the future I will be writing on my other blog, The Pundit Nomadic, that has been dormant for quite some time now.

I am working on 3 projects that I hope will be announced shortly after the 1st of the year. As I said before, I didn't come to Texas to be flat on my back! I am determined to be off of disability before 2015. And fortunatley, I have a home from which to launch said endeavors! is with mixed emotions I step away from this journal. It was a great outlet for me and exposed me to many great folks, some opportunities, and gave me my 15 minutes of fame.

All in all, I've been pretty blessed!

In closing allow me to thank you all for reading, your prayers and good thoughts, material support, and encouragement.  

It's been quite a ride!

Be blessed and have a GREAT Christmas and the very best Happy New Year possible.

See you on the other site.....



  1. Best of luck to you! Met you once up at ITC (Red Mustang) Been reading for several years. -- I look forward to following your other blog as you continue onto great things!

  2. Fortunately you had renter's insurance, or else you would have had a tougher time with recouping your losses. Though it's sad that your apartment's security wasn't able to stop the robbery. Investing in security helps a lot in preventing such things from happening. I hope you were not discouraged with all of what's happening and carry on. Stay safe!
