after that, the day went pretty calmly, as i reflected back on some things in my childhood, especially dealing with george carlin. my parents were strict mormons, and i used to catch hell for listening to carlin and richard pryor. finally my dad gave up and said he didn't care what i listened to, i was responsible for my own mess if i got caught up in george's drug culture. well guess what dad, i didn't get into drugs. that is one thig i am thankful for in my life.
someone on cnn asked me where day 19 was. so i published it and drew some terse comments on it. i have decided to keep posting there daily regardless of the comments, because the story of what a homeless person has to go through needs to be told, despite the words of critics.
i was badly in need of redoing my bedding, i just went and did that, wheww what a job, i need a rest. i tried a new tactic that should keep my feet warmer. i was going to buy a sleeping bag today but ended up using the bulk of my money in stop leak and anti freeze. i also got my visa card hooked up to my paypal today. i can't wait to get these pins out, they're starting to itch and i can't scratch them. i feel fortunate that i didn't have to have the 4" plate put in. i'm going to get pics of the pins next time it's unwrapped. i'm also keeping the pins. i did keep the ones from my elbow, but lost them somehow. i think they're in illinois at a friend's, but she can't find them. if i coul find them, they're worth (in 95 prices) $82 per inch. i had 12 pins in me, and the shortest was like 3 inches. if i could find, and unload those, hey, that's moving money!!
i have also been reflecting on a question some of you mat have the answer to. how do you know when a message is from God and not just your wishful thinking?
with that, i'll retire to my bed to await replies.
