...beeeep...ThisIsOnlyATest

...MyWorld(KensWorld) has not ceased,the 'tests' began a few months ago..."what tests?",they're all tests,when shit hits the fan in any scale,it's a test...

...did'ya study???

...my 'horse'..? gone,replaced with a new 'pony'...her guts are still good,so she'll live again,but there is not one piece of 'straight' sheet metal...we'll have to see how the pick'em up works out,it aint new but it's a solid truck...
...weather here in this neck of the woods has been traumatic,locally three of our communities were hammered with tornadoes,the fickle finger of fate...did'ya study ?

...we had no damage,a few 'sticks' down...others,not so lucky,did'ya bring a chainsaw to the test?...economy is doing so well,they're closing a few more local factories...namely mine...you'll hear about the hundred or so jobs,that'll get created cuz of the soon to be jap assembly plant going locally...but ya never hear of the hundred or so that get tanked,like mine/ours...underemployed they call it,i think(?)...at least if i stay here,that's what it'll be,for me and many others...job interviews,hmmm,another test...did'ya study ?

...KensWorld??? who knows...horse gone,saltmine gone,house going fast...prospects for lateral transition,take me west of Ol'Man river,west central arkansas...mountains,streams,plenty of lakes,who knows,maybe...i'll study and hope for the best,prepare for the worst...

Dude,

Mighty pleased to see you still out there. A while back, the wife informed me that many were seeking word of your circumstance.

Personally, I was wondering if you'd been bushwhacked by Ma Nature. I'm happy to know that she didn't land any blows on you.

I'm sorry to hear your factory is closing. Marvelous thing this is, this recovery that everyone is touting.

Good luck with the new old ride and let us know how things go.

Ken! Glad to see you poke your head out. Thought I was going to have to send up a search party! Glad the truck is up and going again sorry about the factory. If you are going to stay put or look for greener pastures keep in touch!

Ken!! I missed you! and I wasn't the only one, I had some people emailing me asking if Catman & I knew where you were and if you were OK. (Nice feeling to know you're loved isn't it?) ;) I'm beyond relieved to see your post today.

Take care, my friend.
Love and Hugs to you and yours

Damn Bro, come up for air a little more often! Good to know you're still kickin'. Yep, life is getting mighty tough in this here "economic recovery". The good news is that you can quit paying the rip-off mortgage and live for years unmolested. My old house still sits empty four months after foreclosure, no for sale signs, no activity at all. It's worse than they're letting on, but what else is new. Hang in there Bro, things is fixin' to get real interesting...

Ken said...

...hey Fel,thanx Sister,i missed you guys too,funny how that shit works huh?...sorry to burden ya with those questions from others about me,tell'em the same thing i tell everyone,no news is good news(well,no news aint bad news...lol)see ya soon



...Hey Mayb'(sorry,just kinda sticks,ya know)i got tanks,and am dive certified Brother,i can stay under alot longer...lol
...as for the rip-off mortgage,not much choice at this point...stash the cash,build me a shack in the ouachita mountains of arkansas...

Felinae said...

Nah the questions from other folks weren't a burden, I didn't mind them. Just goes to show you how many people care about you. :)

Ken said...

...mornin'Fel,thanx fer the comeback...i try to stay positive about stuff like that,but the first thing to cross my mind is "hmmm,which acronym agency you with???"...even with my 'subtle' views,i get a disproportionate amount of attention...anyway,a heart felt thanks to all those that inquired,and i mean it...GodBlessYouAll
