Irony can be ironic

One of Chapman’s news collector students e-mailed me the other day and said, you’re worth $3 million, not bad.

Sorry but I’m worth about $300,000.

Seems there’s this web site, Idol Net Worth, that pegged me worth $3 million as of March 15, 2019.

Sure, have 5 daughters, 3 grandsons, a divorce and $300K in house renovations so it doesn’t slide down the hill, don’t be employed for 2 years and watch where the money goes.

Apparently me and Minnesota politician Orville Freeman both fought for food safety regulations.

What bullshit.

I write because I love it (and Terry tells me I’m OK at it).

I go to my church, the arena, because I love it, but I hate not being able to be involved (and Australians, even the Canadian ones, know shit about hockey; my wife who has been playing for 4 years is now an expert; FML)

I don’t know where my brain is going but am both frightened and fascinated.

I do know the only one who can fix this – even temporarily – is me.
