I never did have long hair, can’t stand it on my ears. And I cut it myself.

Have never done acid or other drugs. I’ve always been square that way.

Moved to where I am after a dream.

All I’ve ever tried to look like is me.

Never did get into the Rolling Stones, but I’ve heard of them.

Yeah, screw the system, toss it out and start over again, it needs much more than an upgrade.

Costco? Nah, I don’t spend enough money to get into a membership. All I have is all I need.

Night driving is starting to bother me, but there are less places I want to go anyway. It’s nice to hunker down here in a warm room on my own property and stay away from the monkeys.

Whatever Depends on us. Oh hell, we’re screwed. LOL

Lol Kirsten I'm starting to experience some of that list.

Scary stuff!

BBC said...

What do you mean? The man you thought was your soul mate fell back into evil. What kind of evil? Greed for more things? Or something else?

BBC said...

Okay, I've sent you my mailing address. Now I have to go run some errands. Take care, hugs.

The seventies were defined as SEX,DRUGS,ROCK & ROLL. Nowadays, no sex, different drugs, loss of hearing.

BBC said...

Lexen, I was married to a crazy screwed up Christian in the seventies, that didn't think much of sex. Hell, I missed out on all the fun stuff. LOL

BBC said...

Kirsten..... Those cute baby monkeys you posted. Where did you find a picture of one of our early childhoods? LOL

Kirsten N. Namskau said...

BBC: Yes, aren't we cute?? It's me and my brother... Who is who, I don't know

BBC said...

You silly girl, are you blind? You are the one on the right, with your arm around your brother and more hair.

His right hand is headed for his dick.
