Its the end of the world and we know it…words by REM and photo from yahoo

 

 

Hey Y’all,

 

Just a quick little post to say my final salutes. I want to thank everyone for being so kind and wonderful during the last five years of blogging. I didn’t realize it was that long ago until I went back through the archives. If I have learned anything as a writer, it is to always take the bad news first so you can end on a positive note.

Most of you were not here when I started writing but I am so glad that you all are here now. Together we were united in our collective goal of making the world a better place and having a couple of laughs along the way. But it seems that we have come to the end of the line. I read this news story today and I wish I have more inspiring words to say than this. It has been fun.

Christian Numerologist Says World Will End On Sept. 23

Hard to argue with the facts. The solar eclipse did happen. I saw it, live. I hope it isn’t cloudy on Saturday.  photo from yahoo

 

In December 2012, I wrote about the end of the world and I documented all of the things that I had done to make myself ready. You can read about it here:

Of course the world didn’t end and I wrote about the day after here:

I am not making the same mistake this time. No longer am I trusting myself to drive a sports car but the good news is that I paid it off last month. I got money in my pocket again! Here is what I bought!

 

The World's 10 Most Expensive Teddy Bears

This is Louie. He is one cool dude. And he dresses so well. I am learning a lot about how to carry myself with style and class. Louie is one sharp bear. photo form yahoo.

1) Steiff & Louis Vuitton bear

In 2000, Steiff teamed up with the luxury brand Louis Vuitton to create the world’s most expensive bear. Wearing a designer coat and hat, and accompanied by a miniature Louis Vuitton suit case, the bear sold at a Monaco charity auction in 2000 for an amazing $2.1 million. The buyer was renowned Korean collector Jessie Kim, and the bear now resides at the Teddy Bear Museum in Jeju, Korea.

This fact is no longer true. This wonderful toy now lives in Scott Depot, West Virginia. I can’t disclose the price due to the purchase agreement. But it was way more than 2.1 million.

Well…okay. You got it out of me, 14.3 million U.S. dollars. I sold some stock and then used Grimy Bill’s address and social security number to co-sign on the loan so don’t tell him. Who cares because the world is going to end Saturday and I get to snuggle with the one thing I have wanted since I was a kid. Me and my bear and going to ride it out with style. Life is good.

 

So there you have it. It was fun and I will say hi on the other side. Until then, keep on rockin!

    Your crazy

    • Donetta, the world is a crazy place. Maybe we should join the insanity. By the way… read Flight For Sanity and that will answer what Rob and I experience in our work a day world. 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

      • It is on the reading list. Lots of insanity everywhere right now.

    • You were reading this at 3AM. You are the crazy one! Ha ha.

      Love You!

  2. Rob, Dang! A 19 month battle and the end of the world. Will they go to nothing to take me out! There could be an interesting story in all this. Anyway, I had a little celebration last night. Before the end, join me in a bit of a happy dance. http://karlenepetitt.blogspot.com/2017/09/perseverance.html

    • Karlene,

      I love happy dances. So much more fun than sad depressing, sad dances.

      Glad you had a victory in life. Hope you get many more before the Earth types “The End”

  3. Crap! Wish I’d paid more attention to the doomers. I have three cords of firewood being delivered today. No way I can get it all hauled to the woodbin in the back yard and stacked. I guess I can wave goodby as I am swept to the far beyond. It isn’t cold in heaven is it?

    • Mike,

      I am not sure how cold it is in Heaven, but I would guess in terms of relative temperatures it is much cooler than the other location.

      I forgot to add to the good news that the jackleg that is predicting that the invisible planet will impact the Earth on Saturday has media interviews scheduled for next week.

      I guess the wood thing will take care of itself one way of the other.

      • Not that I’m a doubter but I started hauling and stacking anyway.

      • Not that I am a doubter, but I am still working. Ha ha

        At least we will go out knowing we were making our worlds a better place
