 Auto Pilot or self driving

Today’s self driving automobile:

Just cruising on auto pilot....

 Some thoughts for today:

I‘m really not begging sympathy. Yes, I have been down (but not out) lately but not in complete dispirit.  I feel like I am on ‘auto-pilot’.  Something like one feels when losing a very close loved one to death. I know what it is like to lose the best parents & siblings. I cannot even imagine the feelings of a classmate of Sherry’s, who lost his wife a few years ago. He was lost. Then he found love again, now just a few years later, he is dispirited because this last love no longer knows him.  She is now in a ‘lock down’ Alzheimer unit’. His and her doctors asked him not to visit her, he is too despondent and they are afraid his despondency will upset her more.

I only use those, as examples of autopilot. Our sons came over Sunday bringing dinner, it was a good visit.  I know it was meant to boost spirits. It did of course, because it was good to see them. BUT I still felt like I was simply going thru the motions of life.

Car on auto pilot....

Please accept this verbiage for what it is, just chatter. I do not expect to remain in this state, and the blog is sort of an outlet. My jaw still aches constantly, NOT PAIN, just an ache. I am due to see the dentist Thursday. It is an appt to make a mold for the bridge, but I don’t think it is ready yet. I will let him decide or course. ‘Cause I know my Dr. says to me, “YOU ARE NO DOC-TR!”  So I am sure this one will say “YOU ARE NO DENTIST!”

I will try to do better next time, but I ain’t promising nothing…….    ;-)


PS: I just read this:

"Life's like a bird. It's cute until it poops on your head or windshield."

Hey, I just thought, one of those 'auto pilot' cars went crazy in Arizona. just  sayin'

Living on 'autopilot' is probably more commonplace than we realize, Jack. Even behind the wheel. I remember days when I'd arrive at the office and realize I'd no memory of having traveled there.

Call me a skeptic, but there's little chance you'd see me going for a ride in one of those self-driving cars. Can you imagine the insurance premiums?

Glad I wasn't on the road with that self driving car losing control! I am sure you will get your groove back soon Jack!

I understand and sympathise on how you feel right now, Jack. I am praying for you.

I'd hate one of those self-driving cars. I'd ask it to take me to the pub and it would say, "What ... again? You went yesterday!"

God bless.

It would be scary seeing a car go down the road with no driver, But remember Jack right now you are in the drivers seat and you can go and do anything you want. I've been in Ithe auto pilot zone at times, but have soon reallized it's no fun. I prefer have some control over my attitude and more than not I choose to be happy. It's all a matter of mind over matter.

Sounds to me that you've got a case of good old-fashion SPRING FEVER. Best remedy is to go fishin' then take a nap. You'll wake up a new man.
