Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

I pay a lot of taxes. Most of us do.
The government, in order to provide us services (police, fire, schools, roads, etc.), needs money. So we all chip in. I don't mind that. In fact, I'm actually willing to pay more. That's why I always vote for school bonds and the like. Mind you, I wish my taxes were lower, but I understand that if I want safe roads, good schools, fire and police protection, and so on, I have to do my part.
