It's Just Called Lfe...

Life is divided into three terms---That which was, which is, and which will be.  Let us learn from the past to profit by the present and from the present  to live better in the future.
                                                                                                              ---William Wordsworth

So, found this after going through somethings this morning.
Have you ever had to 'share' rides with strangers? Well, I did for the last time this morning. This woman was absolutely out of her mind I was 'sharing ride' with today. Finally, with 2 hours with this woman's complaining, rudeness and craziness, the driver flipped out on her and threatened to throw her out of a moving vehicle!
Strange, I was silently praying during his postal rage; "Please, dear Lord, let him keep his word on this one."
Why must people be like this to total strangers? Do they forget that its legal to carry a gun with a permit? That many people, bullied, pushed to the limit has gone postal on them? What happened to; "If you don't have anything nice to say; don't say anything at all."
I swear to everyone reading this: If that driver had not flipped out on that lady, my purse was going to go swinging like David's slingshot aimed at Goliath's head in that van.
So, after 3 hours, we finally drop the witch off (yes, the one whose sister was found under the house) at her home, and he pulls over in a school parking lot five blocks from where I live. He was so off whack over this woman he needed to breathe.
I get out, smoking a cigarette,(yes, she drove me to it) and suddenly, News 4 van veers into the parking lot, cameraman and reporter jump out and I find myself staring right into the lights of a camera and a mike in my face.
    "Can you tell me your opinion about the budget cut your town; how do you feel..."
"Lady," I interrupted, puffing on the cigarette as if I was blowing up an intertube. "I don't even live in this state. But, there's this lady, right there standing on that porch; she has ALLOT to say about everything."
They zoom off around the corner to interview her. Bet they regretted it.

So, in short, what my story is trying to say is: Life is way to short to be mean, ugly, rude and crazy (they have pills for the last one). Booker T. Washington said it the best: "Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles which he has over come."

I over came my obstacle this morning and didn't beat up the lady in the front seat.
Are you not proud?

Everything is Going to be Okay

Today at the doctor's I was told my Rheumatoid Arthritis has progressed to 400% and most definitely will be crippled in less than 2 years.
At first I was sad, seeing myself in that wheelchair; but...every things going to be okay. My friends, here, on facebook, twitter, blogspot and email friends have been very supportive and telling me to 'Fight this' as my sister Ellen Cook keeps telling me. She is so supportive.
I've decided to stay here to be with her. I love her so much I can't think of my life without my sister and best friend. She said 'no worries; I will take care of you!'
Life is grand, we better live it, love it, explore it; never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

My First Autograph

Today my sister and best friend, Ellen Cook has been promoting my book like a mad woman! She is so awesome! She was shopping today and I tagged along and she introduced the book to the employees, passed out postcards with the books information on it and then looked at me! These women were so excited to get the postcards and meet me; they asked for my autograph! Two women asked for my autograph!!!
I never thought I would get to the counter to sign the backs of the posters we gave them. My hand quivered as I wrote; "To so-and-so, thank you and all the love; CB Logan"
It was so surreal!
Thank you sis for helping make my dreams come true!

Hello FB World!

I hope this works! Well, if William Green was behind the magic than FB friends, you can see me! Thank you William Green (Twitter @willgreen19) for setting my facebook page up to look wonderful. Those that has been asking how I got my fb page looking this great, ask Mr. Green!

Facebook said they wanted me to identify pictures of my fb friends. Well, some I could and others I could not....not pictures of cars, nor of the Hollywood signs, posters of Justin Bieber and cute babies. So, I was locked out. BUT, good news, they asked me to send a copy of my drivers license to them and I did so it may be another day but will return.

I miss you guys and I am having fb withdrawals! But, thanks to William Green for putting my blog up, to Ellen Cook and William for posting on my wall, I hope no one things I was being snobbish or rude.

Sincerely yours,
CB Logan
