I wrote the first “The Miscellaneous Ramblings of an Old Man” in 2011. They are, as the title would suggest, the random thoughts that enter the mind of an old guy. Mostly one liner’s that cover life in general, especially an old life, the profession, politics and anything else that enters what is left of the gray matter. I stopped writing them in 2013, not because there wasn’t sufficient material, CNN, and Social Media provides enough material for a book, I just decided to take a break. These are some excerpts from past “Ramblings”
When you are teaching ramming thru an interpreter and you say “hit the vehicle here” and 5 minutes later the interpreter is still talking – nothing good is going to happen.
Don’t assume malice for what stupidity can explain.
I may have to get old, but I never have to grow up
I don’t need to be associated with people that make me look stupid – I can do that all by myself without their help.
With all the crap you find on social media and the internet – keep in mind that you are defined by your history. And understand that what you do today becomes your history tomorrow. So whatever you are doing do it well.
Life is too short to be mediocre.
I’m curious – when is old enough to know better supposed to kick in – I don’t think I’m there yet.
