 It's been more than a year since I last posted. There have been more injures, deaths in the family and just too many tumultuous events to begin to blog about here but I have started going back to the gym seriously again and training more at tennis so I hope all that hard work will start to show results soon.

I'm finally 55! Yippee!

The Lunar New Year is just a week away now but I'm still in mourning so no red packets or giving away cookies this year. Luckily I don't have to remain celibate as well! Anyway, I'm officially 55 today and it seems like a good time not only to take stock of where I'm at but also where I'm going.

For starters, I've been a butterfly for so long now that I really can't see myself trying to get into a relationship of any kind. I just can't find the will or the energy to have to drop whatever I'm doing (whatever that might be) just to keep some one else entertained. I love my writing, drawing, pottery, tennis and weight-training too much to sacrifice any of it just because someone else living with me is too bored to find something useful to do. At this stage of my life, I need peace and quiet to prepare for my last great going away party - not more drama! 

So it looks like more trips to Pattaya are in my immediate future. Maybe it's one of the results of getting old, but I prefer my naughty stuff in brief intense bursts nowadays while I get on with the rest of my life and death.

Shocking that I'm preparing for death? Not really. I've always known that a long life isn't in the cards for me. So while I can, I want to make sure that I don't go leaving a mess for other people to clean up behind me. Besides, I've spent years preparing for the fact that once I can't enjoy physical pleasures any more, I'l be trying my hardest to come back as a family ghost who'll ZZZAAPPPP anyone that makes my beloved nephews and nieces unhappy. I've promised the kids that and I've always tried my best to keep all my promises.

And I really need to start writing The Book of The Butterfly and The Dragonfly, too. It's subtitle is A Crazy Uncle's Grimoire so that says everything anyone needs to know.

But before I start spilling any wizardly secrets, I need to get into better shape. If I should die before I manage to strut my stuff at Dongtan Beach again, I do not want the undertaker to mistake me for a pig and bung my old bod into the wrong oven!

New Year's Day 2014

It's the first day of 2014 today and I'm looking over the edge of a precipice. I just weighed myself and I am just two pounds away from hitting the 200 lb mark. Horrors!!! I have not been this fat for so long now that I can't even recall exactly when I last came this close to it.

I have got to do something about it or, knowing myself and how much I can stuff in my face when I let go, I could very well go back to my old weight of 250 lbs in next to no time. Desperate times call for drastic measures! I am going to have to begin a thorough programme of weight training, tennis and some form of control over how much and what kind of food I poke between my lips!
