    Default So the wind don't blow it all away

    It's very good... enjoying it... Guy was really into fishing. He's
    talking now about the funeral home and the girl with cold hands, and the
    couple that would bring a sofa and fish a the lake.... so far, no cooking
    recipes. But maybe there's one about cooking fish? I would not be
    surprised. Haven't read the book in 25 years and don't remember the
    details, just that I liked it.

    Is the title a reference to something?

    Just curious...are you in the process of having a nervous breakdown?
    Sure seems like you are exhibiting some of the symptoms. I can emphasize
    with you but maybe you need some professional help. Talk to your
    doctor and get his advice.

    They never cook fish. They "cook" Kraft mac & cheese. Later on,
    there's a Mexican fry cook who cooks hamburgers.

    There is obviously some sort of a problem there. He is trying to
    overwhelm us with a mountain of nonsense. I just cleared my filter and
    there were more posts in there from him than all the other twits, idiots
    and spammers combined.

    Well my ex has me all atwitter and feeling pretty desperate. I've been
    "fired" by three therapists now. Mental health services are pretty expensive
    and my welfare payments are quite small and medicaid doesn't cover much. I
    guess getting paid is more important to them than treating me.

    At least there is no copay to get advice about my problems from the people
    here. And they seem to be at least as interested in my welfare as the
    shrinks I have visited.

    I'm trying to make sense out of nonsense... Lost my job I had for 19 years
    about year and half ago... Then was unemployed for year and half but
    finally had something come through, same retirement system. But lost that
    too... I called in sick two days because of the flu, but during first 90
    days you can only "lose-out" aka miss one day. I misunderstood and thought
    it was two... I didn't really think I should be coming in if sick. (Do
    they really want me getting other people sick?)

    So back to where I was again... TBH, very depressing. Thought I was back
    on track. And I really was trying to do well with this new job. And don't
    really have any prospects at the moment.

    At the moment, trying to figure out what to do. Hard to find work when you
    are almost 50, and I've heard lot of companies now don't even bother to look
    at a resume if you aren't currently working... Maybe I should try and go to
    school and get something healthcare related. Seems there will always be a
    need for people in that.

    In some ways, I feel like I'm getting to enjoy some "retirement" early. But
    I know money will run out... So, yes there is some sort of problem.
    Depression, Anxiety.

    At least I'm getting a new roof this week and insurance is paying most. I
    love the house I bought (for my ex ) and trying to do right by it.

    I was a foreclosure specialist in the mortgage division of a major national
    (as in bailed out) bank. That's what I don't understand, losing a job like
    that when I did. Foreclosures were at an all time high when I lost my job,
    and I really liked it, loved it in fact. It gives me quite a feeling of
    power to sign a piece of paper that causes an entire household to be
    summarily thrown out on the street, kids, furniture, pets, and all. Most of
    those people were deadbeats and liars who didn't deserve to own a house.
    Mostly I was really good at intimidating those people into getting out
    before it was necessary to get them out by force. I suppose the complaints
    to the State made my employer angry, or they just fired me to get the AG's
    office off their backs. But I was just doing what was expected. Oh well.

    "I should have bought a hamburger."

    I'd like to read his daughter's biography, and his last book. Library herehas them... I wondered if he ever killed someone:

    "...the story was created from two separate incidents. The first involved Brautigan, his best friend Pete Webster, and Pete's brother, Danny. The three were duck hunting in the Fern Ridge wetlands, near Eugene, Oregon. Brautigan was separated from the other two. Brautigan fired at a duck and a pellet from his shot struck Danny in the ear, injuring him only slightly. About the same time, Donald Husband, 14-year-old son of a prominent Eugene attorney, was shot and killed in a hunting accident off Bailey Hill Road. Brautigan's incident and that involving Husband became one in this novel (Bob Keefer and Quail Dawning 2H)."

    Don't waste your money on *An Unfortunate Woman*. It just isn't a
    good book. Perhaps Brautigan was so disappointed in it, that it
    tipped him over the edge. It is the only one of his books that is
    crappy.

    Hey, for you Brautigan fans, you might like John Crowley's *Little,
    Big*. The writing style is different, but no less bizarre and
    intense.
    http://www.amazon.com/Little-Big-Joh.../dp/0061120057
    IMO, it is one of the best books ever written.

    I don't qualify for Medicare. Have to have dependent children or be disabled in this state. May change in 2014 when AHCA goes in effect, but maybe not even then.

    Well, the library had it so I'll give it a go... His daughter's memoir is interesting... I just read that he had set timers on his lights, etc in his house before he died... She wonders if he had planned to go on a trip, and something else set him off so he never went on the trip. Who knows? He'd apparently been on the precipice for many years. She says when she was 8he told her, but that he pulled himself together for a few years.

    The Crowley book sounds interesting. Library has a couple copies.
