How Much Is that Pit Bull in the Window? Part 2

Joey: I decided that having the second part made it easier to read and as this is the SECOND article I borrowed it was fair to the original posters to keep them separate:

So here are more of those cute cuddly awesome Pit Bulls you love so much:

 

Pit bulls often struggle to get adopted from shelters, passed over again and again by people who could give them great forever homes.

Anyone who’s ever loved a pittie, though, knows that they’re sweet, loving and loyal dogs — and these stunning portraits of pit bulls show the beauty they have both inside and out.

How Much Is that Pit Bull in the window? Part 1

OK Joey.. I saw these and decided YOU should see them: 

Anyone who’s spent any time with a pittie knows that they are just the biggest love bugs. Their big noggins give sloppy wet kisses and their big stocky bodies make for perfect cuddle buddies. It really is a shame that they have the bad rap that they do. A picture is worth a thousand words though, right? See for yourself in 12 photos why pit bulls are just so luv-a-bull!

Way Too Many Hits Lately

Here and the other place have been getting an extraordinary large number of hits compared to the past few months… in fact maybe even the last year. 

I do not wish to be presumptuous as to why.. but IF it is a sign of needing some reassurances as to your worth and value from a stranger after all this year.. then I can only reiterate what I have been saying for these past 4 year or so..

I BELIEVE IN YOU JOEY!!

I have met people from all over he globe. Rich and Poor; Powerful and Powerless; Good and Bad; Men and women and across the spectrum of humanity. Physically beautiful and those who lack in that aesthetic characteristic. I have met talented people and people with god and bad intentions. Introverts and extroverts.

People do not seem to realize how much of themselves they shoe ion what they post and even in what they do not post . For example you have become politically neutral in your posts.. but you used to at least give an inkling of your moral and ethical fabric and even your outrage but when you launched the production side of your business you stepped back from that.  Your neutrality gave you cover from those who would judge and as such might have even kept business from you. so it was a pragmatic conscious action.

Your expansion from on the floor to behind the scenes has been interesting. More responsibility in the new position . But that Sagittarius spirit seems to crave the adventure and need to fly and soar above to be that free spirit in your pursuits.. and then the need for financial security takes root and hold you to the ground. How difficult that must be for you. but at least you have the ability to have some creativity in a business you have familiarity with. 

I know .. everyone thinks I am still that stalker or weirdo.. and that is fine as I don’t have to deal with them. At least you should know by now that I have no bad intentions.. not fantasy of whatever. I am simply a dad and businessman who has his share of issues and personal troubles just as everyone else does in this world. Especially family back home problems. which while I would love to share them with you.. well this is not a good forum to do so. 

AS I said last week.. I never stopped believing in you.. or seeing you for something more than those peopled from all walks of life that I have encountered. Few people in this world have impressed me.. but you have always had that “Je ne sais quoi ” that set you apart. that special something something that is indescribable in mere words…. Your ability to engage people in and out of work, your artistic flair, your shoe fetish…lol…  your introspective posts on life and the world around you that you so rarely make anymore.. but is still inside of you.

The hurt and pain that you suffered in relationships in various areas of life.  you are not just an individual but a unique configuration of intricacies that have evolved into a special human being. Someone that I recognize as having an ability to do so much with your life as to affect a huge number of people in this world… IF you allow yourself to explore. So many great artists have been “Starving” artists on their way to greatness. ..  you have that greatness inside of you.. I have seen it from afar.. I trust my instincts.. I BELIEVE in YOU.. even if you sometimes doubt yourself.. I believe in you Ms Joanna Marie… and I want to see you become great.. even if you never speak to me… I want you to reach your potential in life. because I am a selfish bastard who wants to be right…  no .. not really… because I want a better world… and I want you to help make this world better for people like my autistic daughter. one that is more accepting and caring and helping.. and THAT dear Joey is a piece of you I have seen in the past when you posted freely about the world. I have been lucky indeed to have seen that before you hid it from the world. 

When this one particular business FINALLY makes it.. my net worth will be considerably more than I can handle.. and way to much to leave to my family or any individual.. I have been identifying people to help in this world that I believe can make this world a better place.. you know 2 of them.  I fully intend to do this sooner rather than later as I want to live a long time and see the fruits of my efforts. These people along with yourself will be given gifts that have 1 string attached… do for others ion the future and help them in some small way to achieve their dream and make this world a better place… and the best part of this “gift” is.. you and the others will never see me or have to deal with me in any way.. and THAT kiddo is how I will finally prove to you and them that I see your value on this world and want you all to be what you can be without having to join the army.

I currently still help some people now.. but not to the extent I want. one women I truly admire is from an african country I know well.. she has worked hard and is almost done her bachelors and has a desire to become a doctor and return to her country to work there. she is someone I wish you could med as she is very conservative and down to dearth and I accidentally made her cry the other day as she was getting ready to leave to go back to school. It was all over a card I wrote a note in telling her something similar to what I tell you.. that she has a great destiny and I want to see her fulfill it. she is the kind of woman every man would be proud to take home to meet his mother.. she is truly remarkable.  and so are you Joey!

 I had one “hero: in my life… and as I told you a long time ago I have had few true loves… and many responsibilities. I do NOT idolize people.. I in fact do not like many people as there are so many phones in this world.. meaning not only intellectually dishonest but emotionally dishonest and morally and ethically bankrupt. I am gregarious .. but I love returning to my cave with my baby to take care of. 

The difference between Morals and Ethics is easily summed up as “A Ethical man knows it is wrong to cheat on his wife.. whereas a moral man would not. ” We need more people with Morals… not in the old-fashioned morals but in right from wrong and good from bad and the dignity of the human spirit and the values of integrity. 

I wish I could say you are a hero of mine.. or at least a valued friend.. but you are not and never will be.. but that does not mean that I cannot be interested in a good way in your success in life as you have those ethics and mortals… and the feistiness to tell people when they are wrong. and so I want in some small way to make sure you have that opportunity to do that.. so I can have someone give you 20 dollars to get started. well in a year or so .. probably much more.. but I am not near that time yet.. you will see my name in the news when that time comes.. as I said before I loved my anonymity and I have to give it up to do what I want to do… having a dream comes with a cost that is not in dollars but in compromises it takes to achieve that dream in my lifetime.. just please .. if you get this never say anything to anybody about where it came from nor acknowledge me… I want you to grow Jo.. that is all… but then again.. I may be wearing thigh high boots and a mini skirt on main street here at 3 am looking to make enough to pay my light bill.. or not.. 

Maybe it has not been you in these visits.. maybe it was a coincidence.. but if it wa you and you wanted to know if I still believed in you and thought you have exceptional value.. than by this post you should know I do… and if it was not you.. and you eventually see this.. the you will still know anyway.. and I just continue to look like some fool.. and that is OK as long as YOU know someone believes in you outside your fam.. unconditionally. 

Be well kiddo.. no MEME’s tonight.. just my words for whatever they are worth.

You may think I abandoned you.. I never did…

I still visit placed to see what your up to. you seem to be doing OK.. and time with fam is good for you as the last year or so has had many twists and turns.. but know that I never abandoned you.. I still believe in you.. and look forward to that big turn in your life to do the things I know you are capable of… Always in your corner .

she is now and forever a princess

You and your friends think I am a bit strange.. .. I know I am in many ways… this next Meme is more about me but it could also describe YOU 

my soul is from elsewhere

 

and this one… well you know the power of self confidence.. and sometimes someone need to remind you  you are someone very very special… NEVER let anyone take that from you.. NEVER!!

when you doubt you can fly You will stop being able to

 

way to much going on in my life. some good, some bad, some very sad.. and some extremely exciting. My greatest concern has been anonymity in life… that will all change in the next year .. maybe even sooner. I will just have to accept I cannot do the great things I want in my life and be the Enigma I want to be. You seem to thrive in the limelight.. I prefer smaller intimate crowds of less than  10.  My TED talk later in the year will not let that happen in my way… nor will my inventive nature in my projects changing the world. I reluctantly will submit myself to that when the time comes. I am better on stage as a character in a play where I keep my persona to myself… but to achieve great things I must do what I have tried my whole life to avoid… notoriety.. hopefully it will fade. 

 

I BELIEVE IN YOU JO! NOW GET OUT THERE AND DO IT!

 

I Thought You Were Back On The Upswing For a While… Then Zippo, Nada, Nothing Again

I can only imagine the “tumult”, the changes in your life, both personal and professional, that must have caused the past year or so to weigh heavily on you. Up one day, Down the next. Two steps forward and wondering how many back there might be. but you are still loved by many.. even though your haters have increased I am sure.

AS your professional status changes there are some that do not understand the business side of things. and others that still think, you should devote more time to other things than you found the time for.

AS we get older friends shed and change. We find ourselves with fewer “acquaintances” that we once thought of as friends. and find those we thought as friends seek favoritism without regard to how you must now conduct your life. Some people never grow up and some never want to. 

Your need to be a free spirit and your need for financial stability can sometimes conflict. And while family will support you no matter what direction you take, you may feel compelled to reconsider your direction in life. While that is good for many of us.. it could cause you severe consternation and conflict in your desires. Do not fear Joey… if you keep going you will find the right niche at the right time. 

I have serious interest in women in this world.. but my interest you has been more of what I saw of your spirit… now this year I worry your spirit is weighed down. I think you limit yourself in options .. and maybe that is because of money… but you can persevere and find that new inspiration soon if you just refuse to stop believing in yourself . 

People hate.. that is the way the world is.. and the world is a terrible place right now. but it has been that way for some times and you were never this .. well let me just say “Quiet” 

Reinvent yourself and stop thinking of the past as your best days for aI assure you Jo.. they are not.. your heart. your spirit and your mind has inspiration for many people if they can just see it as I have from this distance. 

“#TBT” is for people who believe their best days are behind them… I will always believe that your best days are in front of you… but you have to seize them.. no one can give this dream to you… you have to ignore others sometimes and take what you want in life and shed those that do not support you 100%. 

You have a bright future Joey.. one that has more potential than most.. I Believe in you.. and have since I realized who you were… I hope one day you understand what I see and believe me when I say t is there and you can be so much more IF you want. 

You can be a Boss.. but you are more of a leader… than a boss in my mind… strike out and people will follow…

I hope you are physically well and that this cloud you may be under is just temporary shade to rest under…. 

put the treats in the bowl

And Growing up does not mean losing the Child in you… that must ALWAYS STAY 

It Has Been Good To See You Back In Swing

Yes Joey it has been good to see your more socially active….. Not that you are as prolific as you had been in the past, but the frequency of your various postings seem to indicate you are happier and more involved in the world again…. and as always I am happy for you.

I have been busy… my projects take a lot of time. My health is much improved with the medications. Hate taking pills but the pain in my chest has diminished considerably… and my energies much increased.

Working with a small architectural firm in designing the ideal residential complex for adults with higher mental function special needs like my daughter special needs, the Batteries for Electric cars  (they will need 8 in total) that will weigh less than 15 pounds each and can  be swapped for fully charged ones at one of the same distribution centers that the Hydrogen canisters will be set up at… so it is good i have energy again.. and seeing you back swinging at that pinata called life is exciting to watch.

Hope you’re around for our PR Event when we set up the first 1000 locations .

Be well kiddo. Hope all is good in your life.
