Depression is a real killer!

Whew, almost didn’t make it this time.

Yesterday, the only excuse I have is that I have no excuse. I just let it go and let it at that.

Today, I wanted to post a blog, because I know how important it is. However, I began suffering a bout of depression that just won’t let go and keeps on getting worse. When such things happen, I become extremely listless – not giving a damn about anything. Such a feeling can last a day or several days – there’s no predicting it. And, the depression can be mild or deep – I can range from slightly blah to downright miserable. Right now, miserable is winning, hands down.

But I’m fortunate in that it never goes below that. I never go down to suicidal.

However, that does not make life any easier. I still only want to stay in bed and pull the covers over my head until it’s over.

Well, I got two videos posted yesterday. Both from the Trains and Breakers event at the Dietrich Theater. I just wish more people would check them out.

I’ve been trying to expand into the social media via Facebook. But I’m still on a learning curve at this point, so I don’t know how successful this is going to turn out.

Well, the Wyoming Count Fair is this week, so I know that will be a rich source of material. I’ve just got to pick and chose everything rather carefully. That will start on Wednesday, and end Monday, which is Labor Day.

I was considering doing a “Back to School” event at each of the schools, but then decided against it. I just don’t want to go through the hassle of getting clearance, etc., for something that may not pan out.

All right, even though I’m not in the best of moods, I won’t disappoint you, so here is today’s bad joke:

An old witch decided to go into business for herself, and opened a tea room.

From the start, the tea room proved a popular venture, with many people visiting the establishment.

Things went so well, the witch decided to increase her profits by reusing the leaves used to make the tea.

Because her customers did not seem to notice, the witch continued the practice, often reusing the tea leaves over and over again.

However, the customers ultimately did catch on, and the witch’s tea business eventually failed.

And the moral of this story is “Honest ‘tea’ is the best policy!”
