Janky Blues before Monday Exercise – KPACS2020

The first week of the year was vacation so the resolution to start exercising was postponed a week. Tomorrow I have to work out, the first time since last year’s new year’s resolution failure. This year though, I’ve attempted to avoid the failure by being more realistic. Last year I said, “prepare for a marathon.” This year I’m saying, “walk 30 minutes, 3 times a week.” I can do that!

BUT, before I start that feat of anti-couch potatoism, I am going to Guitars and Growlers, a live music bar here in Richardson that is featuring Janky tonight. Janky (Scott Lindsey) is a local blues legend and plays G&G every first Sunday. He and his wife have a daughter who is Sarah’s age and they’re good friends so I’m going to try to get us all together tonight but even if not, I will love the music and will enjoy a pint or two by myself.

I’m a husband and father, you can see my family in the home page of this site, and taking care of them is my first priority. I am a lazy Catholic and a political Independent. I don’t hate Trump just because he’s Trump and listen to him and give him the benefit of the doubt that he’s doing something good – but he does seem to shoot himself in the foot a lot. He should just close his mouth. But if you just hate him because you hate him you should close your mouth as well.
I have bipolar disorder, I talk about to help end the stigma surrounding it, and have episodes of now mild mania and extreme depression and suicidal ideations. I write this because you will see this in my blogs. I’m not seeking help or attention in a blog (I have a Facebook group for that where I get help) so if you see I’m contemplating suicide in a blog I’m either: blowing off steam, or posting here and with my bipolar group at the same time and they’re helping me. You can comment but don’t think you’re needed to intervene!
I am also distracting myself from what can be an all encompassing disease by being in the ham radio hobby. I got my first license back in 1980 when morse code was a requirement. I got my second-level license, allowing me to talk on the air, in 1983. I then did little participation (just renewing my license every 6 years) for 30+ years. Looking for something to take my mind of my disease, I joined the Richardson Wireless Klub (K5RWK.org) and upgraded my license to the third-level, the “General” license which allows me to talk to other hams around the world not just around town. My callsign is KA5GKL. If you are a ham you can find me in the Richardson area on 147.120+PL110.9 or 444.725+PL110.9 or if you’re not in Richardson use WiresX and connect to the K5RWK-ROOM.
