WordPress just informed me that today is the one year anniversary of this, my humble blog.
On this momentous occasion – the first anniversary of the internet sensation that is my obscure blog. I would like to thank all of you who made Cranky and Taxing such an amazing, astounding success.
To those four people who actually read or watch this drivel… thank you. To those who actually follow me – you are my raison d’être. I love you more than Chocolate Covered Frozen Key Lime Pie on a stick. (Which is a lot! Cause that stuff is awesomeness x infinity)
Well I do exist to do actual work as well – but the sentiment is somewhat valid. Well I think it is… Anyhoo…
I hope year two will be more fun-filled and wacky!
I am blessed to call some truly remarkable people friends – but I am exceedingly fortunate to have my true friend, Jocelyn.
She is an amazingly talented writer and all around exceptional person.
Recently, I recorded some of our conversations while testing video recording software. When watching the videos later I realized something profound – the two of us are insane.
In this conversation Jocelyn was relating her vacation adventures with her Dad and another mutual friend Mel in North Carolina.They were traveling in a tiny economy car which wasn’t a remotely comfortable ride in the best of circumstances – especially with four people crammed together. Despite the challenges of a microscopic automobile and horrible road conditions Jocelyn’s Dad decided he must find the fabled waterfalls of Asheville North Carolina. It is important to note that once Jocelyn’s father has decided on something he wants to do no amount of discomfort or threats to personal safety will keep him from his objective.
This video is the story of one man’s unwavering effort and his daughter’s patient suffering. It was very difficult to find five minutes of coherent dialogue that didn’t contain generous amounts of profanity. (we are both of Irish lineage)
I felt perhaps some readers/ watchers might be amused by the tale.
Also – I may have something to say about the recent IRS scandal soon…
