Nice short week. Feeling good & detoxed from Thanksgiving. Food I don’t typically eat & I had a glass of wine as well as a gin beverage of some type, good at the time but nice to get out of my system. Sorry about the typos in any posts, my bad.
I still don’t like meeting new people the way I look now in a wheelchair with an iPatch. I feel very awkward, socially anyways. I was outgoing for a bit after high school. Even had a bit of self-confidence for a while.
I had another shocking/pleasantly surprising moment during my exercises Wednesday morning. I was about to start my squats & figured I try to just stand still with my hands a few inches away from my transfer pole. Turned out to be the longest I’ve been able to stand on my own. I’m pretty sure I’ll never walk on my own again, but that was a great event for me that morning!
I try not to watch CNN & Fox news channel isn’t free with our cable package. We did have a free trial period though. I’m a Canadian that has seen both broadcasts. I’m not a fan of either one even though I side with the left/democrats/CNN. The 2 stations are further away from each other than I could ever imagine. CNN tends to twist the knife in their favor. Fox news seems to be fiction grabbed from dream land & reported as news. Personally, I have no say on November 3rd. I’d vote for a cold serving of liver before I’d even consider voting for Donald Trump. Can’t say that I was ever a fan of his even before he became President. What exactly has he done for Americans in a positive matter? Has he ever put American citizen’s safety/health a priority?
He’s done some terrible things and denied them all. He was involved & has been photographed in many of these situations that he has, conveniently, forgot. He’s lied, cheated, withheld information, he’s ignorant & arrogant. Even in Canada I’m tired of the lies & misinformation. I not only have the effects of cancer & depression, I now have “Trump Fatigue”.
I can’t vote in the USA Federal election since I’m a Canadian living in Canada, if I was in Russia I assume my opportunity to vote on November 3rd would increase. Canada shares a border with America & I feel as though I’m too close to Donald Trump. I don’t want a dictator for a neighbor. So for the 10 or so Americans reading this, PLEASE VOTE HIM OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not OK with 221,180 American deaths (at the time of this writing) due to Covid & I don’t think anybody should feel different.
There’s a provincial election happening in Saskatchewan too. Far less coverage of our election on the local news than the mess going on in the USA. Finally on Wednesday evening news I watched a Saskatchewan Provincial debate and what did I learn? Nothing! A lot of yapping about what the other party can’t do. You’d think most politicians would know by now that voters already know what the current party can’t/won’t do. I’d like to know what a different leadership can do & what changes I’ll see. Of course there was no talk about people with disabilities, as usual. I’m supposed to vote today and I have no clue who to vote for?
Brewster had a visit to the vet last night. He was already maxed out on pills for his heart murmur & things got worse for the little guy. He has some type of disease that I’m not even going to pretend to spell & he’s on another medication for a bladder infection. Between blood, urine, vet visit & medication, then we find out he has a bladder infection, his kidneys aren’t great, & some disease I’m not even going to try to spell. We’re both a little stressed & worried about our little guy. I’m just glad he’s not in any pain at this point, still worried about him A LOT! The little guy is priority number 1 more than usual! I didn’t sleep well, but Brewster did. He was up & bombing around the place this morning. Pretty sure we just spent a little more than a mortgage payment at the vet last night, we needed all of his heart pills again too.
I went deep this week & decided to learn the guitar for this song. I’ll be working at this for a while. I’ve got most of the pattern down, now I need to get it up to tempo. I’m done picking songs to learn, I have a lot of tabs bookmarked to learn.
If a person wants to wear any kind of shirt with a logo, band, or anything symbolic on it, I don’t care. When you give it any attention, it’s free advertising for a brand!
I haven’t listened to this album in a long time. I should change that! Rick Beato will forget more than I’d ever hope to know.
Well I did it & again I didn’t like it. Too many glaring mistakes. We made 2 videos of me playing guitar, one with my Epiphone Explorer & the other on my new PRS S2 Custom 22 semi-hollow. Kim noticed that I just instantly tense up with a camera in the room.
I should mention that the video of “For all the cows” is with my PRS which I had setup with every string tuned down a ½ step, flat. The song is not written that way. I just like to play in that tuning. Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb instead of the usual E, A, D, G, B, E. They’ll both be on the Facebook page! As for the actual playing, anxiety is at maximum & after 9 tries, I figured that was enough.
