Kenno

@Kenno@mastodon.nz

An Eclectic mess of a man. I build Robots that draw things, they draw the thing with pens on paper. They do a very good job. I ride a Vespa 300, I live downtown in a tiny perfect city with Janno, my partner in life for almost four decades. I blog, shoot photos, and make a mean coffee. I cook, I bake, I do domestic things, that make life dignified. Also, I'm kinda new at this retired thang, but I kinda like it.
Sorry, no cat photos (Court Order).

I'm not saying it was breezey in Welly yesterday, but the pot of fresh Basil for tonight's pizza blew out the kitchen window yesterday and is reported to be circling Nelson!

Oh gosh, I'm still tired and haven't finished my coffee yet. Please excuse all my typos! No, I don't think she caused me a head injury! more later when I'm out of rehab.

Years ago, I paid the CIA a whole lot of money the clone you! Well what ever happened to Operation ORBROUNDWORLD? Now is the time to ACTIVATE.

I've often (and more recently, of course) pondered how we might be if we were 'more than just pals.' Truth is, I can't tell. Of course, I'm thinking about personalities and daily living -- not the 'other stuff.' If I have any Jimmy Carter in me, it's not so much :) I do a lot of the cooking and cleaning and like it so...

"Normal mental health, even some that can be severe, I can cope with, deal with, and help make right, then make a relationship. No one can do that on the Personality side (formally Axis II). Anyway both of us will be better without each other. (You wouldn't believe the huge number of personal deficiencies I have -- even I don't and I live in this skin and I know I'm not perfect! I was just happy to agree with every invective thrown at me and wait for the grant exit. At least she left some wine

Olde man, look at my life, I'm 84 and not much more I said I'm over here!

Kenno,

@sylkykat Perfect!

About when I got to that part, I started singing
Carry On, by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
The Two opening verses are:

"One morning I woke up
And I knew (that you were gone)
A new day, a new way
I knew I (should see it along)

Go your way
I'll go mine
And carry on"

Hey, subconscious, that's a little on the nose even for you, don't you think? Of course not you float around my noodle like a troublesome Greek god. Life was so much better when I denied your existence.

The mind (if that's what it is) works in mysterious ways; well, mine anyway, but you probs already knew that!

I woke up this morning, thinking about James Joyce. I blame the Widower's Club (not it's real name) for that. If anything can define an Irish novel, it's a good prolonged death and grieving period of not less than fifty-years. Then there's Leopold and Molly Bloom. What? What subconscious parallels? Okay, fine, and I never should've given up the boxing Ken. Now come to bed!

Kenno, to random

The first rule of Widower's Club, is you don't talk about Widowers Club. Just like that other club, only the penalties are more severe!
Well, fair enough. The intro session, was the perfectly designed orientation and warm-up. The peeps putting it on have tread these boards many a evening. style.
I mentioned that my default position with a problem like this is isolation until I can emerge, but I've decided to 'do the opposite' push myself and see what happens. So far, so good.

Primary voting day today with only one item on our local ballot... choosing 1 of 4 candidates for county board. I went to my usual voting place and was redirected to a local school as there are now two polling places in my village (for the 1st time). Arrived at the school to find a full parking lot and a very long line of cars waiting. I left so as not to miss my haircut appointment. Returned to the school a few hours later and was redirected back to the original place I had gone to vote. 🤷‍♀️ After being explained to as how to check where I was supposed to vote, I said it wouldn't have mattered if I had done so because I would not have argued with the poll worker. So they called ahead and I returned to the original polling place and successfully submitted my vote because my vote matters (no matter how many tries it takes).

Kenno,

@YMItalking

Democracy requires persistence! Well done.

Okay, I got my meds, so no matter how exciting this evening might be, my heart will beat slow and regular. Also, I got the smackos and bagels, and some hot smoked Salmon. Yes, I did make one, it was my first meal at 1500 today! I feel better now. One more little meal and I'm outta here at 1830.

While I thought, Sneaky-Grief was over, it booped me in the opening scenes of "Crimson Tide, for the love of Submarine Movies! I guess I'm just a tubular romantic, who'da thunk it?

I think dating might be doomed! Between the "Yeah, let's," crowd who live a three hour jet plane flight away, the peeps that can't put a sentence together, the 36 year-olds, falling out of their shirts mistaking me for somebody's sugar daddy, and the generalised passivity that is the national personal construct, has this thing ever worked for anyone? I'm thinking not, but I give it one more day.

Kenno, to random

Attn.
Kiwi Starvation has been averted!
The grocs arrived and they are put away, but where are the Smackos and Bagels?

Kenno, to random

Well, the day has come the Captain said to get thee to a Widowers Club! Thinking how much fun that is going to be, I decided also to play just a titch on a local over 60's dating site. I KNOW!

I've been thinking about why I was arguing with the logical "Way too soon." side of my head. My brain then mentioned that the grieving has been going on for about a couple of years, since things got really bad for Janno.

Isolation, might be my default, but it's also the enemy. A coffee date survivable.

Kenno,

Looking back, honestly, things got really bad for me too, but I was not recognising myself as the subject, just the rock she needed. F'n insights!

Kenno, to random

Okay, life as we know it Jim, may continue. I have found some frozen shrimp (Prawns), pasta and Butter Beans. There will be enough chilli and herbs to make the grade of spice (which should also be the plural of spouse?)

Kenno, to random

I did the grocs from my desk. They'll be here on the morrow, the cost was only half of my usual order when there was two of us! What happened to two can live as cheaply as one? (I'm getting thinner, so there's that.) Also, because of stupid Aussie bank the own BNZ, if fobar'ed my credit card yesterday and there is no food in the house for tonight! Yeah, yeah, lettin' things slide a little.

Kenno,

@CarolynStirling I gotcha, but I was the main cook, and we ate much better and more of it, when there was two of us. I'm just being ironic, and frugal, for I know not why, and clearly, not eating as well as I should (so, typical lone male on that count!). Take good care, hug harder! All the best.

Kenno,

@CarolynStirling Yeah! That's what I used to do too. I need to get back to that again -- thanks! Healthy, lots, and some frozen stuff. Imagine, I thought I'd have a lot of fish in EnZed, I thought it would be cheap, since we are surrounded by them! Takes two to three days on a truck to get from the ocean to Toronto and, the price is about the same as here! (So, is the price of a lamb leg, if you like that kind of thing, and that makes no sense at all!).

Kenno, to random

Tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow, is my first night out (in years, to be honest, not that I care in the least). It's evening one of the Merry Widower's Club. It takes place in a burb called Petone (hint, not Pet-One).

The thought of this is making it all too real! What's worse? I'm not really a very good Solitary Man, though, I like the song, and you might not know by looking at me. So, by some sheer terror, and a cruel joke of the gods, I'm 64, and these peeps talk about dating after 40

Kenno,

@Antigrav Almost as good as having a lobster walk into your house and ask for a warm bath!

Kenno, to random

So, today, I talk to le Gouvernement de Canada about Un Canadien errant. Where she wanders now, I do not know, but I must tell them, she is missing and innocent. While I am the one, Parcourait en pleurant
Des pays étrangers.
(Walked around crying Foreign countries.)

RustyBertrand, to random

Wow!
Sometimes it's worth all the shit on Twitter, just to have one person start sharing Palestinian posts.

I try for one "like" from a person who doesn't usually say anything, a day, but this is big.

Kenno,

@RustyBertrand

Well, maybe it was the WB Yeats quote? This could also mean you are in a quantum superposition, until someone looks in on you. I for one will await your heroic arising from the ashes of moribund judgement. Don't be long, eh?
