I wonder IF any of you who are hosting websites ever sit and wonder .. scratching your heads literally or figuratively .. about WHAT TO TITLE A POST that you are writing. Such is the case here and now with me.
I get asked .. “Cap? What do you do all day?”
I do what many of you also do all day!
I spend hours .. HOURS .. looking for things that I just-put-down in a place that I am absolutely positive I will remember and don’t (remember where I just put it down). Living in a mess in a backpackers tiny room DOES NOT HELP MATTERS!
Make a small mental note of the green Tupperware 16-ounce tumbler in the below two photos. Right in front of you above is an Orange Juice bottle. See its green cap? Make a small mental note of him also.
“What do I do all day?”
I clean up one mess that I make after the other!
Monday I knocked the 16-ounce green Tupperware tumbler .. that was full of Orange Juice .. off the fold-up shelf.
What a dratted mess! Sweet and Sticky Orange juice all over the floor. I had to use Toilet Paper to blot-it-up. I had to use a LOT of toilet paper to do this. Then I had to use hand-soap to de-stickify the floor of the Orange Juice residue. And water. No mop so I finally had to use a facial wash cloth (which by-the-way was MORTIFIED being used to swab the floor .. living like this requires one to downgrade ones-self towards being just another animal in the universe!) as my mop.
I vowed right-then-and-there to never again put the green 16-ounce Tupperware tumbler on the fold-up shelf. I now put him on the surface beside the bed against the wall! See the top-most photo above. He is NOT against the wall in the photo but he now lives-against the wall.
Go back now and refresh yourselves about the Orange Juice Bottle with the green cap above. Get It? Got It? Good!
We are now at Tuesday morning. As in the next morning after the above Orange Juice SPILL. Good Morning Captain .. It is Orange Juice time! I am thirsty for Orange Juice. So I reached down and picked the Orange Juice bottle up off the floor and I shook the living be-dickens out of the above Orange Juice Bottle to mix up the pulp and the liquid. Got it? We all do this!
HOLY SUFFERING BE-JESUS!
I had completely forgotten that I had taken the green lid off the Orange Juice bottle. I am still not sure when I removed its lid nor what happened. When one is on a CLINICALLY SIGNIFICANT MANIC EPISODE (As yours truly is!) little details of life just sort of slip-away. Maybe the lid was just loosely positioned onto its bottle and it flew off when I shook it all up.
Not only was Orange Juice back-upon-the-floor .. Orange Juice was all over my suitcases .. the walls .. the bed .. SIGH!
I used a MORTIFIED tooth brush to scrub down the sides of my suitcases. “Oh get a life tooth brush! At least you are NOT in the toilet bowl cleaning THAT stuff off the porcelain interior are you?”
Where was I before the wheels just fell off above here? Got it!
Hit Re-Start Captain!

IF you do what I do .. You’d better do what I do!
I have a dentist here in Hong Kong because it is a good thing to have a dentist because you may need a dentist and IF you do that is NOT the time to shop for a dentist! Trust me .. have I ever lied to you?
Come on in with me. It is a nice place.
Moving right along ..
IF you need a pharmacist .. then you better have one! Jet Lag and an extremely unusual diet makes me lock-up .. read .. constipation! Um-m-m-m .. let me think ..
‘Got it! .. SENNALAX 12MG .. 2 capsules at bedtime. That will do-it! It most certainly DID!
“Nocturnal leg cramps? Those are bad aren’t they! Here is some QUININE SULPHATE 200MG tablets for you!”
I have a file that dates back to 2008 with a local hospital. I left San Francisco so sick in May of 2008 that I said I will either be on the plane or dead. I got fixed up here in Hong Kong. St. Teresa’s Hospital. Not a bad name is it?
What do I do all day?
Sometimes I wonder .. truly I do. But this I know as FACT .. I do keep myself busy! Doing THIS (writing Posts) .. photographing things .. writing YOU post cards .. exploring and shopping for things I think that I need .. With only one key I decided to try to get a spare key for my Samsonite Brief case .. it was a job to find an official Samsonite Dealer .. it will take two weeks for the spare key (code number 170S) to arrive. I do go to a fair number of meetings. Eating Singapore Rice Noodles. I can’t say that I sleep much .. after all this is a program of honesty! All sorts of projects getting ready for the challenge(s) of India.
OK Captain .. Let’s put this to bed and press PUBLISH ..
Not what many of you want to see in a Post .. but it is the real deal. I plan to be .. God Willing .. on the road on this trip until mid-September 2015.
Smiles .. Cap ..
Before I press PUBLISH I will say ..
THIS I GUARANTEE YOU! THERE IS NO PLACE ON THIS EARTH THAT I WOULD RATHER BE AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT I WOULD RATHER BE DOING THAN PRECISELY WHAT I AM DOING RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW! I BELIEVE THAT WHEN I GET INTO A GROOVE SUCH AS THIS .. WITH DISCERNMENT .. I FEEL THAT IT MUST BE GOD’S WILL FOR ME!
Happy Thanksgiving Day to you ALL !
