Jack The Fireman

Some days you wake up and discover that all you are going to do is run around putting out fires.

That describes today, I have been Jack the fireman. Most of the stuff I have done has been relatively easy, just annoying.

But there have been some a few bigger fires and some of those have got my attention. Some of those have got me wondering if they are going to turn into bigger issues and that concerns me because there is not a lot I can do to stop them from getting to be bigger and nastier.

Doesn't matter how close I pay attention or how much I do to be proactive because there is nothing in these things that allows me to work that way.

I am just stuck between a rock and a hard place hoping things go better than I expect but anticipating the worse.

But the thing that kills me, the one that sticks in my craw is that sense of if I had done as I wanted to way back when none of this would happen now.

Time Moves Too Quickly

Sometimes the hardest part of blogging is finding the time to do it. That is the real trick in my world these days, got lots to say and little time to do it.

Be Who You Are

I know whom I am, what I want, what I need and who I am. That doesn't always fall in line with others want or their expectations but I am ok with that.

I don't put a coat on because you are cold or change my thoughts, feelings and ideas just because it is out of line with others.

Sometimes being who you are is tough but you always end up feeling better about yourself than if you change your behavior to make someone else happy.

Lebron Loses Again

Somewhere in the blog is a post I wrote about how Lebron would have to leave cleveland to win a championship.

Some people disagreed and said he would never leave but history proved me right about that and wrong about him coming back.

So for kicks let me throw out again a prediction that he won't win a championship in cleveland. It is the kind of thing that will generate an emotional response from fans who will tell me they didn't win this year because of injuries.

I don't buy it.

That is because with Irving and Love he subjugates part of his game and doesn't play to his ability. Without them he plays as hard as he can but he isn't good enough to carry the team the distance.

He is not the player he once was, age and mileage have already caught up with him and his skills will continue to diminish. Unless he is given more serious help than he has the best he can hope for is the chance to improve his championship record from 2-6 in the championship to something like 2-8 or maybe 2-9.

Always on the other side of the mountain looking at the promised land because that team is cursed and until it is removed they aren't going anywhere.
