Thank you Dred and Lin. Without your constant input I would be long gone. We are a special group, contributors or not. We are so special that I find it a bit maddening that there isn't more dialog.
I have had a rather interesting few weeks. If you keep current you all know that I have recently moved to Montana (the best decision I may have ever made) There are buffalo right outside my window this morning. So as I am setting up house I intentionally didn't plug in any clocks. I've never cared too much about what time it is, because I always know when it is time to crack open a beer, or six! Even with few clocks in my world I still see 11 after 2 or 3 times a day. The clocks that are always in my face are the clock in my truck and the one in the lower right corner of my computer monitor. Even though these are primarily the only clocks I see I still see 11 after in other areas, like the bank in town. It tells you the time and temp. When I pick up my mail in town on occasion I see 11 after on the banks clock.
I got a permit to pull 10 cords of wood from the forest from the Forest ranger station and they ask you to keep a logbook of your wood. When my truck is loaded I get my logbook out and fill in the date, how much wood I got and the time. A couple of times when I look at the clock to see what time it is for the logbook... you guessed it ...it was 11 after.
Dred knows this better than anyone, we often see 11 after when we begin or finish something. When I'm done with my wood cutting for the day and see 11 after I sit and think what a wonderful experience it is being an 11er. For me it's like being watched over. I've always thought that it is a sign of accomplishment or reaching a status of approval by a higher power, the power that created us. You guys know that I've written a couple of books and instead of keeping the royalty money for myself I've given it all to charity. I think that the higher power greatly approves of this kind of behavior and I think that's why I'm an 11er!
Since I have fewer opportunities to see 11 after, but still see them regularly I have to admit that the 11's I see are 7:11, 9:11 and 1:11. For the past two months those have been the only 11's I've seen. Especially 9:11. Hmmmmm!
About the conference calls I've missed a lot of them because I am unsure of which Saturday they are so I have a suggestion. I think we should have a conference call every Saturday and more that a few hosts. This is not a criticism of how things are currently handled. Thank you Mel for getting the calls up and running, its just that I wouldn't expect you to conduct every conference call especially if we went to every Saturday.
What do you think you guys! I think every sat would be awesome and I would be happy to host.
Love you all, even the new members. Please contribute. 11erSteve
