Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22149 – 721:
Sometimes when it’s getting late or I don’t have any inspiration, or like the guy in the cartoon above my muse just isn’t working, I go traipsing through the archives and files trying to find something I’d like to present to you, Gentle Reader.
My first few weeks on the job are going to be pretty screwy, schedule-wise, because they want me to learn what each shift does. This makes an awful lot of sense to me but I will have to work a little harder on scheduling blogging time. I am having fun though, re-reading some of the poems from the older notebooks. I also love a lot of the cartoons I collected from Andertoons during the period I had a subscription. Part of his licensing is that if I got it while I was his member I can use it according to the other guidelines.
End Or Beginning?

Ah well such is life
Escalator up, down Sideways in airports Business suit walks up Really silly two at a time Guess he can’t wait Twenty seconds for the ride Freaks Weirdos Little kids Go up the down And Down the up Often as possible Until the guard comes Why? Why? Why? Why go down faster? Sad I never like down I get there too fast on my own The kids are the funnest to watch Up the down escalator Like little salmon

I often feel like I’m going up the ‘down’ escalator…
A lot of days feel like that for me lately.
My life has been UP the Down escalator!!
I think it has for many of us. Especially these last few months.
Actually, these months, this entire year actually, hasn’t been as rough to deal with as I first thought.
I can’t stand the bloody things. There is a reason why Led Zep did not write ‘Escalator to Heaven’ – apart from the obvious lack of scansion. Watch the little black hand hold. When it gets to the top, it disappears from sight, and reappears right down at the bottom again. Doesn’t seem to matter whether you go up the down, or down the up, you still end up at the bottom…
Did I mention that I loved the poems Herb?
lol. I wrote that one when I worked at a store that had an escalator. “And she’s buying an escalator to heaven…” Hmmm… I bet Weird Al could make it work.
It’s been at least a week since I went up the down escelator.
Sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.
i prefer to go down the up escalator. If i gotta go down i want to make as slow as possible. Love the poems herb especially the End or Beginning I feel like that every time I finish a tablet
More laughter is what the world needs
I go up the down one with my grandkids to show them it’s possible.
