Jim Borden’s Blog – “Borden’s Blather” – Is The Writer’s Inherently Charming, Intelligent And Witty Presentation, And Well, It’s Simply Neat Fun To Hang Out There …
… Emerson’s words capture perfectly the kind of life I hope to live:
“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
J. Bo (*) Shares Moments And Curiosities Of Everyday Life As Testimony That Is Immediately Pleasing And Satisfying To The Reader’s Curiosity And Appetite To Learn From An Engaging Educator.
The Range Of Topics, Depth Of Research, And Knowledge … Reveals A Tidy Nugget Of Purposeful Information – A Teachable Moment – Entertaining The Reader (Guest) Especially Well With Reason To Come Back For Seconds And Thirds …
“Jim’s Comments Are The Real Gems Of Borden’s Blather. I Was Welcomed The Very Moment I Connected With Jim. He Seemingly Answers Every Comment, And Does So With Genuine Interest And No Small Serving Of Sharp, Observational Humor. You’ll Go From A Smile To A Laugh.”
And Leave With A Reminder That There Are Genuinely Good Folks Blogging On WordPress.
All Of Them …
But If I Had To Narrow It Down To A Couple Dozen, I’d Say Don’t Miss Jim’s Weekly Feature “Monday Music”
Spoiler Alert: It’s Published On Monday’s And It’s About Music.

(*) I Didn’t Ask Jim’s Permission To Refer To Him As “J. Bo” … Any Resemblance To J. Lo Would Be Coincidental And False. J. BoLo Share A First Initial, A Period, A Space (Not Literally Together … The Same Space Between Names … Uh, The Long Key On A Keyboard), And The Second Letter In Their Last Name.
That’s All I’m Saying …
“And, Thanks, Jim.”

One too many times. He laid still, silent as death. His body stiff as a plank of gnarled hardwood, like rigor mortis had set in, harpooning him to the mattress.

All I Had To Say …
This post originally appeared December 4, 2019 on Kuched. Though it received many positive comments and views, I deleted it. Thought it may have been a little Self Inflamed. Ego Rendered. Get Over Myselfish. But, its Just Me … Talking. I own these words. Cryptic to Gospel. Added a bunch more on the version below. If you think I’m writing this Friction Fiction about you? Nah. It’s All About Me even when it isn’t …

Well I’m a-runnin’ down the road try’n to loosen my load
I’ve got seven women on my mind
Four that want to own me, two that want to stone me
One says she’s a friend of mine.
Well I’m a-runnin’ down the street try’n to loosen my heat
I’ve got eleven women on my mind
Six that want to atone me, four that want to clone me
Only one says she’s a friend of mine.
