FINALLY… I’ve been saying for way too long that I was going to do something with this site, kicked around several different ideas, put it off for one reason or another, but here it is. I’ll be sharing different things here, not going to focus on any one thing right now. I have been very fortunate to visit some great places in the past few years and I’ll sharing those adventures as well as new adventures. Being a music junkie, I’ll share music that moves me along with my thoughts/opinions on it. Then there will be everything else, the random shit that just comes to mind.
While the site is onearmedmike and I do have only one arm, that is not the focus of the site. Sure, I will share funny stories about situations I have found myself in. Like the time I my ex-wife’s friend got onto me at a football game for not clapping or when a friend told me to turn around so he could put handcuffs on me to see if I could get out of them. Shit like that, I mean, c’mon, you can’t do anything but laugh sometimes. I’ll also be the first to admit that being down an arm does pose challenges in life at times, but it’s no different than others, just different. And I’m sure some of the things I’ve done despite it can be inspirational for others, so I’ll try and post those types of things as well from time to time. But make no mistake, my situation doesn’t make me special or deserving of being treated differently. We all have scars from life, some visible, some are not, but we all have them. It’s how we deal with them that determines who we are. And dammit, I’m going to be the best man I can no matter what. OK, enough of the one arm bullshit.
Oh, the graphic with this post is the original simple graphic I created well over a year for the site, maybe you’ll get a laugh out of it as I do. I need to find someone to create a new legit graphic for the site. If you or someone you know might be able to help out, give me a shout.
