$50,000 K – 50 YEARS OLD – DREAM!


DSCN3833My birthday is coming up – the big five oh – 50! I am growing my hair and goatee long to celebrate and it will all commence on April 15th! One of my buddies asked me what if ya got $50k for your birthday – what would you do?

I thought about that all weekend long – the truck broke down again and looks like a water pump needs replaced. But wow, $50k kinda like lottery winner time. I know what I would do –

I would buy/mount an old Alaskan Camper to my old diesel truck – pack up my meager possessions and  go out on the road. Chloe would ride shotgun and I would plot my course all over these backroads USA. I would visit Facebook friends, friends that supported me when I was down and almost out, one Hell’s Angel that saved my life, a Mormon kid that I owe, my old classmates, my old students, Curns, Hank Will –  and my cuzins far and wide, my favorite medicine man in Arizona, not my ex-wife (cause I wanna live to 51) !  I would travel and say thank you to all the great people that created me and keep a log of all of it! Then publish that log in what is called a book!

Then I would come back to Lodge Grass, Montana and settle – because really this is my home. I love this rundown, poor community. Real people live here – good people – even tweekers with good hearts.

A man can dream….
