Bobbing and Weaving

Peeps -
I'm taking down the FreshAyer Countdown.  It's been up for well over 700 days, and we painfully watched it progress to zero.
~
But, it's been 10 days since we have entered the Halfway House stage and everything is progressing nicely.  Gradually, in small steps, everything is returning to normal.   Our grandkids will never remember this... while we will never forget.
~
You may have noticed that this Blog rarely tells you anything.  But rest assured that everything has been recorded, and will be disclosed if appropriate.
~
When I was a young man, I used to think that we lived in a system that was ordered and structured by a well administered rule of law.... that you could follow a course of action and a moral way of life, and live freely and unmolested.... that you could depend on the government to dispense justice.
~
   Now that I have morphed into an old curmudgeon, my viewpoint has shifted considerably.  I now feel that we live in a kind of free for all... where the rules are made up as you go along,  that government exists primarily to provide jobs to check box bureaucrats, and you have to live by your wits to avoid being crushed by the competing interests who want a piece of you for their own checkboxes.
~
Man... that sounds cynical.   But if you can keep bobbing and weaving, you can outlast the bastards.  It's in the bobbing and weaving that the vestiges of a free and fruitful life still exist.
