Livin’ Like Joe

In Humor, Resolutions by Jen10 Comments

Three years ago I read an obituary about a man named Joe and he LIVED LIKE A BOSS for 59 years! I mean this guy

  • At 15, he had a semi-valid licence by transposing some of the numbers.
  • At 18, drove his first Harley off the showroom floor.
  • Loved hard having 4 wives and 3 sons. One named Jack Daniel. I like to think it’s ya know…like the liquor.
  • Was at the forefront of the online adult entertainment industry during the internet’s early years.
  • Made breast implants.
  • Sold and repaired Singer sewing machines.
  • Was a model train enthusiast.
  • Rode Harley’s cross country.

In celebration of Joe’s life, his friends and family met a local pub. Although I had never met Joe, he has fascinated me. I had thought about going to that pub on that day to hear more Joe stories, but decided that may be a bit odd.

Now is the time we make resolutions for the new year. Being a single mom, I feel like I blink and a year has come and gone and I just went through the motions. I want to live a fuller, more interesting life. In 2018, I’m going to live like Joe.

  1. I love to read about people being ready to take on the new year. I love that energy. I think we all should be like Joe. That year does fly by and I hate reflecting that I did nothing over that time.

      Thank you for your comment, Meagan! Living a life we love is often difficult. I try to remind myself to stop peddling the life bike so hard and enjoy the ride.
