My Hipstamatic Life


I’m doing a little planning for #the100dayproject. I need to post the title of the project on January 31. The start day is close. I need to get busy with ideas.

1. During the 100 days there will be three or more travel days, one oil change, a Safari park, a cardiologist appointment, and I’ll be living away from WHQ for a few days. Those are the things I know about.

2. Currently I intend to do all the photography and video work for the project with an iPhone. The photos will be taken with Hipstamatic X and edited with Snapseed. Videos will recorded with the 8mm app and edited with the Splice app. All this is subject to change at any time.

I’m debating which 8mm filter goes best the the toy camera filter in Hipstamatic X.

3. The concept is to record my everyday life in words, pictures, and video.

4. I need to come up with a unique hash tag too.

  • #myhipstalife
  • #myhipstamaticlife
  • #100nomaddays
  • #xyborgnomadlife

5. Or maybe I should do it all in black and white

6. Suggestions are welcome.


January 2021 has been excellent for me, I hope it has been for you too. I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments encourage me. May love and connectedness surround you. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Vaxx Now

Personal Notes


1, I broke a tooth. The dentist appointment is at 2 pm. I suppose I should take a shower.

2. Like every night, I left my shoes outside by the door. When I went out, one shoe was gone. In the dim light, before sunrise, I looked around. I spotted a shoe like shape on the next parking pad. I walked over and it was my shoe. A few bite marks, but it was usable. The bites give it character.

This is the culprit!
The chew toy

3. The trip to the dentist : I had 3 broken teeth. It was the three breaks. Papa break, the mama break and the baby chip. An hour and a half and $135 later all were repaired successfully. I was out the door.
I was only aware of mama break. The other two were surprises.

I think I’ve discarded my irrational fear of dentistry after only 60 years of living with that fear. Becoming nobody and practicing thinking new thoughts is paying off.

QOTD: Do not let people’s opinions of you mold your destiny.
Let unhappy people have their unhappy thoughts.
Continue on your path courageously.

Personal Notes


1. The combination of Covid and the current civil unrest has hindered my lifestyle, leaving me a bit adrift in the ocean of my life. I’m ungrounded and have self work to do. My life was nomadic.

2. If I don’t move he won’t see me.

3. It’s been an entertaining few days doing “out of my routine” things and thinking new thoughts.

Curbside Pickup


I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)
  • SOLO style cups
  • Bug spray
  • Liquid dish detergent X
  • Graham crackers or saltines. X
  • 2 Diet Coke X
  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X
  • 1/2 gallon low-fat milk X
  • Almond milk X
  • Men’s multi vitamins
  • Guinness stout

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate the likes and comments. Much love. Stay well. ❤️

It Was Close


It was almost an “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” moment earlier.

Ripped lawn chair

Ripped lawn chair

That big ripped out place was supporting my arse. When it ripped my arse went to the concrete. My feet were dangling in the air. I’m sure it was a humorous sight to behold.

Ripped lawn chair
As I attempted to get out of this chair trap, I heard and felt the back rip. Thank God it didn’t totally rip like the seat or I’d fallen backwards possibly hitting my head. These chairs should come with a warning label requiring sitting helments. I could wear my bike helment.
Ripped air rest orange lawn chair

Trying to avoid ripping the back even more, I pressed down harder on the armrests attempting to raise up my arse and get at least one foot on the ground. Fortunately the armrests held and I was able to extract myself from the chair trap.

Just another near death experience to add to the list. Hahahahaha
