Life in the Slow Lane

Just starting this blog and I have no idea exactly what I will post here. Maybe I will post about my life as I travel in the slow lane...because I AM traveling in the slow lane.

Since retiring I have been traveling in the slow lane because my health has deteriorated, finances have slimmed down and I tend to sleep a lot since the meds make me drowsey. :)

I have seen other people's blogs and some are very creative. I would like to be able to do something like that - with pictures etc.  Will I do that? I don't know. But that is a desire I have.

I don't have any pets, an RV or anything like that which would be interesting to talk about.  I do have a blog that I use for political things... So no need to duplicate that here. I haven't done much traveling since moving here to Arizona - BUT, I would love to do that!  I do keep a journal, but that is mostly day to day things that are not often interesting.  I keep it more as a record.

I do play a game cal;led Farm Simulator 2011 which I enjoy and it can keep me busy! I am a Christian and could write insights I get from that perspective. I enjoy feeding and watching birds in my back yard...perhaps something will jump out at me there.  I have two sisters that blog and maybe I could steal some of their things - BIG TOOTHY GRIN...  8^D   I have worked with Deaf people and am myself Hard of Hearing and sign ASL (American Sign Language) flueltly, so I could write about that. But I have a web space for that at

I use to do Cowboy Action Shooting, hence my handle, Deaf Ranger, which I use in almost ALL my communicating, on Facebook, Twitter, et al. But I haven't done shooting for might near 4 years since health has taken a limiting toll on my agility. As a result of the CAS I started doing leather crafting and have a HUGE sewing machine, professional model, that sews through up to 3/4 inch of leather. But since the economy went south I have not been doing that much.  But I do have two web sites that sell some of the things I have made: and  If you should want to check those out.  My wife makes some - or did - period clothing for the circa 1880's - mostly for men.  But as I said, the bottom dropped out and we cut back on those things unless we get special orders.

I do ride my ATV in the desert some, so I could write about that.  I have found several homeless people in the desert during my rides. Some are characters - I could write about them.

Sometimes I go to movies or watch older ones on TV so I could comment on them...

So, on and on I go. I guess I will just wait to see what happens here.  IF you have questions or comments, by all means leave them here and I will see how that relates or what can be said or done.

Okay, I guess I will wrap it up for now - at least it is a start.  I thought I would only have a sentence or two to start with but I have prattled on long enough! Until the next time, SKSK
