Now's the Time to Say Goodbye

I think it may be the time to put the wraps on my blog Perry Block - Nouveau Old, Formerly Cute.   I've advanced the character (the fictionalized me) about as far as I can after almost 900 posts, a pretty good sign it's time to call it quits. If anyone is interested in what happens to Perry Block,  it's really all in my book by the same name (Perry Block - Nouveau Old, Formerly Cutewhich takes the character through a significant part of his Baby Boomer life more or less to the current day.

As I've said in the past, Perry Block in the blog is not the same as I am.  Though unconfident, he's more confident than I am, certainly more freewheeling, and - unlike me -  somewhat conniving. It's odd, but now that it's over, I have to say that 

I kind of miss him.

Go figure.

Anyway, to the degree I may write Parodies or Satires in the future unrelated to "Perry Block,"  they will be on various websites throughout the web, and maybe I'll post some of them here.  Two fairly recent ones on Slackjaw are:

I'd like to thank all those who have read my blog over all these years and told me they liked it, and even if they didn't too.  I appreciate you all.

If you are a Baby Boomer, do your best to enjoy these not necessarily inherently enjoyable years. Don't let anyone refer to you as a "Senior."  You are a Boomer! Any age-descriptive name is bogus and unnecessary.

To the best degree you can, don't leave anything on the table. Go after what you want even if you have to go out of your Comfort Zone to get it.  And if you don't have someone to wrap your arms around at night, do everything you can to find that someone as soon as possible.

I think that might be the most important thing I have to say of all.

And if you're  younger, be you Millennial or Gen X, enjoy your young years. They go fast. Before long, you'll be avoiding mirrors like a vampire just like we do.

Got that, mother-fuckers?

Take care, everyone. Be good, but not too good.  

Bye-Bye, all.
