thanks for the kind words everyone. Yes it is the wifes depression. I do wish she would get some help, but I can only beat my head against the wall for so long. I love her but I wish her the best. I am not sure what I can do. I was overwhelmed with the support of friends, shows how blessed I am. Very thankful.

Well sorry i have been sparse the past few weeks / months.
Its been wierd.
I have been seperated from my wife since december, depression (not mine) is hard to live with. I will leave it at that.
Also lost my job on 2-11. I didnt want to say anything until I got a new real job. I got a job at home depot but it kept me afloat until I found a real job. I accepted a position today that will make me decent money.  But things are on the upswing.

Been to florida for a few skills tests for the state, and interviews going to turn down the job since I dont want to relocate and it pays less than what I was offered.

The reason for the lack of visits is because I would get up in the morning, go to an interview, come home change and go to work at Home depot in the evenings. Or travel to florida for whatever hoops they wanted.
 But hopefully that is over for a bit. I will look for a better job soon but I can pay my bills again and move along.

2019 has been pretty much shit. Bama loses the National title badly, wife issues, job issues, and lol Auburn is in the final 4?

It hasnt been all bad, it appears people think I am a good guy and call it what you will, good things have happened to me from friends.
My landlord forgave 2 months rent, (I did some repairs around the house)
A former co worker lent me some nice suits to interview in (dude is a snazzy dresser)
A friend and his wife have offered food almost every night (only partook sparingly)
Former coworkers would invite me out to lunch to see how I was doing and would sneakily take my check and refused to let me pay.
One of the recruiters who worked with me told me he has rarely recieved the praise I got from my former bosses. He said whoever hires me is getting a good one. He said he can tell when people are phoning it in and well he said those guys were hurt I was gone. Made me choke up a little, I got caught up in a 63 person layoff and know it wasnt personal, but I feel a little validated that they thought that highly of me.
The job I was offered, a friend recommended me and built me up so much, I show up to interview and basically it was like, "this is what we offer, this is how cool this job is, when can you start" not the typical why you want to work here and what can you do for us.

The Dirt

I wasn't doing anything and this popped up on Netflix so I thought id glance it at and see how Netflix portrays Motley Crue.
Turns out its an almost 2 hour VH1 like documentary. Characters break the fourth wall, ironically at times to tell you this part of the film was made up or a certain pivotal character was left out to move the story along.
This film touches on the main peaks and valleys of their run, and sometimes does give the casual viewer a pov not necessarily known by those that weren't around then or don't follow the band.
In the end, its kind of fun but I grew up with the Crue coming to life and all that jazz so its probably different for me. It would do little more than wet the appetite for the casual fan to know more because its not that in depth, as it can't be really, I mean, its a rock and roll career spanning decades.
And just an FYI, there's a bit in here about the controversy from their song Shout at the Devil and I can tell you, it was quite fun debating the meaning and lyrics with the supposed Christians back then during the uproar.

If you're a Crue fan then you've probably already read the book, if not, see the flick. If you're not a Crue fan but a rock n roll fan, see it if its raining outside.

Cool been looking forward to checking it out.

Richard Todd (Bama QB) only played in NO for 2 years. At first I was going to say 87 or 88 and I remembered he only played in NO in 84 and 85. So I am going 84

Raiders are a dumpster fire.

Browns getting OBJ might help them.

I was going to say 94 because Marcus Allen and Emmit Smith. But will trust Crewe on this and go with 95.

97 eh? Would have considered the 90's my strongest decade of NFL knowledge. But it was LT's and not skill players though. Good job.

I never got into Heart, they had a song or 2 that was good, but just never got into them.
