I'm sorry

Postby pinhead » Sat Nov 07, 2015 7:53 pm

I will not be available in the next while.

My dad passed away this morning and I need the time to deal with it.

Thank you for all your patience.

Une règle suivi gueri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. A man needs something to do besides contemplate how crazy everyone has become in a world of overly exaggerated self-importance upheld and maintained by the new dumb.
