Gazing into the Crystal Ball  

Posted in , ,

This is the first real chance I've had today to sit down and check out all the blogs. This is pretty late in the day for me, but work sorta kept me closed away from the real world ALL DAY.

Anyway, as I was making my run through all the blogs I enjoy on a regular basis, I got to Sarah's. If you don't follow her, then now is as good a time as any to check her out and see why you should. This was her post today, and it's but one layer of all the great stuff you will read over there.

So I was tagged to give my predictions of where I see myself in 10 years. Good question...

Well I figure that IF we aren't destroyed by the Mayan meteor prediction there is a good chance that I'll be in either Idaho or Montana. I've been working towards that end for quite some time, and I'm pretty sure that in 10 years I'll be at one or the other. I'm thinking I'll be a grandpa by that time too :) I will have made my attempt to get at least one of my rambling stories published. I don't know that I'll get the honor of a publishing, but I will be secure in the fact that I tried my best to make it happen. I'm going to be enjoying my refurbished barn that we will be living in and I'm going to have my big ol' kitchen where I can cook all those wonderful Italian dishes whenever I want to. My middle son will be graduating college and moving on to work on his doctorate and my little one will be getting ready to graduate H.S. They will be happy well adjusted kids, and my wife and I will be breathing a little easier because we will have some great kids doing good things with their lives. Well that and the air in Idaho and Montana is sooo much better than here in California.

So that is my 10 year forecast. I don't know how accurate it really is, but I'm thinking that a little of that will be true enough. Some of it maybe a little sooner and a few things maybe a little later. So I'm supposed to tag some more people with this one. So we are gonna see who actually reads my drivel. I tag
Asblackasobama @ I Think It's Interesting
Samantha @ Apple Juice and Milk
Kitty Moore @ Kitty Tells it as it Is
Ally @ Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
Dayne @ Coach Your Mind
Desertson @ Writersoup Fuel for the Mind

I know that I'm supposed to tag more, but I like to "bend" the rules too. :)

Such a short post for a long winded person like myself, but I think that it will have to do for this evening.....

I too am a Californian working towards moving to a place with better air and scenery!

Thanks for the pointers towards good blogs! ASBLACKASOBAMA is the man! I know we are related but I would still say that. =)

Sounds like a great plan Bendigo. The thought of all that space makes me breathe deeply this morning, thank you.

Looks like a wonderful future, Bendigo!

You paint a lovely picture for yourself Bendigo

I LOVE your prediction, and mine is similar too...get out to the wide open spaces. Watch out, we may be neighbors!

That's some life! I hope it all comes true for you and then some.

P.S. Can you build a little guesthouse so we can visit this little nivana of yours and eat that food?

In the words of Abigail Freemantle..."All are Welcome Here."

I'll make sure I get the guesthouse ready...Just in case.. :)

Wow, I always saw California as one of the coolest place to live!!

I hope every single thing in that future planning will happen for Tina said, it'a an awesome 10-year plan! :)

Thanks for the nice comments (I'm red like a tomato right now..!)

Thanks for the shout out Bendigo! I've got a lot of thinking to do about where I'm going to be in ten years!

How come you're planning on leaving Cali for the country? It can't just be the air....

Are these westerns that you write? Where can we read those?

March 5, 2010 at 10:25 PM

Sarah...California has it's plusses...Mountains and Ocean within driving distance is hard to beat... I too hope all that stuff happens for me..

AS...The air, taxes, political leanings...There are tons of things that I no longer like about California.

Funny thing about my writing. I don't write westerns...I am more of good ol' fiction writer...Most of my writing before was geared towards my kids, but in the last few years I have sort of gravitated towards fantasy/adventure...One of these times I'll get the nerve to post a short story or two.. I can hardly wait to read your 10 year forecast.

What a plan. Go for it! Montana is beautiful any time of the year. I just drove a big ol bus on steroids through entire state on my way from Louisiana to Calgary. Lots and lots of snow entire way. It was beautiful!

Ah Russ, you are making me restless now..That sounds perfect...Waking up to a white landscape with the fire crackling....I wish I wish...

March 8, 2010 at 8:57 AM

I think that your plan sounds amazing.

Makes me want to visit Montana and check out that fresh air :)

Good read Bendigo! I hope your dreams come true, but I know that you will do what you can to make sure they do!
