2-1-17 Deactivated my Facebook Account today (7:32 p.m. C.S.T.) and feel really good about it.  Just got tired of screwing with it.  To sum up my FB experience I can only say it ceased to be a place I enjoyed being.

I don't know how much time I'll spend here.  We'll just have to see.


  1. My husband's adult children use FB as a method of communicating invitations, medical emergencies and all the other kinds of things that happen good or bad. I didn't have a FB account and we were unaware of birthday parties, my youngest step-son's appendectomy, etc. There's no excuse for that, but one post and a hundred people know and nobody has to make a number of phone calls. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be there at all. I had to join em because I couldn't change em.

    Blogger isn't ideal either, it just gives me a place to write when I choose to get away from the crap and since no one much reads it, the crap doesn't follow me here.

    1. Your comment ironically mimics my own concerns, and to that - my wife maintains her FB account. The fact that she insists on having FB for the purposes you mentioned is fine with me. In fact, probably necessary also. The 'good thing' for me is that my departure from FB is of no big concern because we still have that important link. However, the fact that I don't have to deal with FB anymore is a pure delight for me and I'm more than happy to allow my wife to maintain that link while I sort of like you can come here and 'get away' and - since - I suspect that I will go basically 'unread' this can be a semi-diary of sorts about what is going on in my life; a pure 'get-away,' which you called it. I will, as I stated before, not be putting out anything of any substance, just musings coming out of this old, experience head which has already in a short 68 years already seen too much of where this country/world is going. I can tell you one thing with certainty, and that is I'm damn glad to be my age in these troubling times and would not have it any other way. In short - I wouldn't trade my age for one 40 years less. I believe people of our generation are the last ones to enjoy America the way it was meant to be. Going forth will not be pleasant for our children and especially for our grand-children. I now only expect to imitate General McArthur, and like the old soldier I am ... just fade away. I look forward to conversations with you in the future. Thanks for your comment.
