This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Alec Baldwin's show is cancelled which must make Chevy Chase feel good for no longer having the shortest running show in the history of television.

I wonder if any of my imaginary readers even remembers that Chase once had a late night talk show. Then again, I'm making fun of Baldwin who had about 300k people watch his show and my book sales have not yet reached 25.

Someone mentioned to me that they are having a difficult time posting comments to the blog.  No seriously, it was a real person, I'm not making it up.  I have it set so anyone can post and can post anonymously, so it might be a browser setting maybe?  I know my regular use browser is seriously locked down and I can't read comments unless I allow discus or whatever it's called.  But if you want to email me, feel free to send an email to Barkley Pontree at gmail.
