Where Has The Time Gone?

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Holy cow! I didn’t realize how much I have neglected all of my royal subject! I humbly pray that thou dost forgiveth me! Well if thou does not “Off With Their Heads!! I doth only kiddeth minions so feareth not!

Tis mine own fault.

Just the other day I was conversing with an apothecary from a neighboring kingdom. We pondered at the notion that time passeth exponentially basedeth upon age.
Caseth in point- when thou is a youngster time passeth ever so slowly. It leaveth you ranting hurrieth up and come on alreadyeth! I can not waiteth til it be the season of Christmas! Then once Christmas hath passed one findeth theirself chomping at thyne bit for spring to arriveth, then for summer to be here. Each one upon itself taking what feeleth like forever to be here.

Alas, once thou hast reached the age of 25 and thou hast finished all of thyne studies and it is into the real world and earning funds to payeth the tax man, it seemeth like thy life doth fly by ever so fast! 1 day turneth into a week, turneth into a month turneth into two months turneth into six months and afore one knoweth a year hath passed on. I remember the day that my wife and I hath crossed paths. Twas on-line on a fine wintry night in December 1996. Twas February of 1997 when we met face to face when I had flowneth her to meet me in NY to share our 1st Valentine’s Day together. It seems like it twas yesterday and not 12 years and a wee bit short of 7 months from our first meeting. Having passed our 9th wedding anniversary the end of July seems almost impossible. I still see the young faces of our 23 and 20 year old daughters as the wee ones they were on our first meeting. It can’t be so long ago, but it is just ask my bones they will definitely affirm that the time has passed since then. DO I have any regrets? Unfortunately I must say that I do. What are they, well let me seeā€¦

Ah yes!

I regret that I had waiteth as long as I had to marry my wife. I regret that I have gotten ill. I regret leaving my wife and kids alone 4 days after I moved them to NY from Michigan with them knowing not really a sole and at odds with the in-laws. I also regret the accidents that we have had in 2005 and my injury in 2006. And my biggest regret is that I am not able to provide all that my wife deserves and desires to make her life as wonderful as she makes mine each and every day since our two lives have joined.

Royal Ponderous for today:

Take each day as it may come remembering to live it the best that you can. Make certain that you enjoy every moment that is given to you, but not forgetting that you touch the lives of those around you. So, remember to make every action that you do one that brings joy to those around you and love to those that love you. For if time doth seem to you to passeth ever so quickly, imagine how quick it really is passing! God Blessings to you All and Love to those you love and that love you! Remember every person is a friend that you haven’t yet met until you say hello! Hello!

Homage to John Gordon Rosenbauer - 1962 to 2007

Into my life he did come.
He added some mystery and some fun.
Course and gruff did he appear on the outside,
but gentle and kind hearted was he truly inside.

Hard working, talented and loved by all.
Always there to help you, just give him a call.
Easy to talk to always ready to listen no matter what it might be
Truly no greater friend was there to me.

My world is now saddened and full of sorrow you see
For my friend has now left us, gone to a better place has he.
God has called him to come to His side.
Up to His Kingdom in Heaven the Lords Angels were his guide.


Fear not for he has not left us all alone in our sorrow,
for he is always with us in each and every tomorrow.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
he is the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
he is the soft stars that shine at night.


Do not be selfish and mourn for you loss,
But be gladdened and happy for to a better place did he cross.
In God’s loving arms is he now embraced,
His troubles and woes will no longer need to be faced.


Speaking of us all to God is what he will do.
To ask Our Lord to Shine down upon us and fill us with his Grace.

May you Rest in Peace.

Without Pain What Would There Be?

Friday, October 20th, 2006

Did you ever think that at one point in your life that your days would be rated on a “Pain Scale”?

Tonight I sat on my couch while the Queen had headed off to the Royal Chambers, she hasn’t been feeling up to par lately.

Thinking about how things were when we first had been wed, the energy and verve of life, the constant willingness to want to do things and the energy to do them. Who would have thought that in the 6 years that we have been married my life would have changed so much. Please don’t misconstrue what I am saying, I love the Queen and the fair Princesses that I now have as my family, and would never change the fact that we were wed, nor do I have any doubts or second thoughts. What I am saying is that in the 6 short years my life has changed drastically. I have watched my Queen and myself become physically and mentally chopped down to our proverbial quick.

To sum it up here are some of the major contributors.

  • 4 days after moving family from MI to NY King forced to return to Houston Texas as the AC pipe leaks through the kitchen ceiling
  • Queen given ultimatum from job, return to MI or let go, (telecommuting jealousy issue), there goes major second income!
  • King gets sick, asthma kicks his royal but!!
  • 9/11 strikes and job market tanks in NY and nation’s unemployment rates hit highs
  • Oops here comes LTD (long term disability) and Salary cut
  • Queen’s main job is chauffeur to King trips to physicians reach high levels and hospitalizations occur. Queen’s employers don’t understand and let her go, King hits all time low as he knows it is his fault.
  • Queen’s depression increases as jobs are non existent for required availability.
  • Queen starts Corporation and opens On-line Store, Yippee!! , if only it were as successful as we hoped!! ( check it out A Trove of Treasures)
  • Queen and King in Car Accident
  • Castle Floods from 8 days of torrential rains!!
  • King trips in Bank
  • Queen has cyst on knee
  • Queen and King van gets backed into at gas station
  • Bank says not at fault King didn’t lift feet high enough entering bank!
  • Physical therapy not working, King recommended for possible shoulder surgery

    Well now the Queen has a stomach ailment that will not quit! SO what now? We constantly try to find the silver lining, but I guess my glasses are near sighted worse than I am!!
    I guess you don’t get given more than you can handle, or so they say. I do count my blessings, the Princesses, the Queen the Royal Canines, The Royal Fishy – Beau, and the fact that we get up every morning and have friends and loved ones that do care about us. Hmm I guess things could be worse!!
