The “do da tribe”; Card Carrying Members
The last day of the work week. The day the members of the “do da tribe” live for.

Well, We come to the end of another week…Unless…
There are TGI Fridays, Freaky Fridays, Photo Fridays, Illustration Fridays, NPR’s Science Fridays, Pragmatic Fridays, Friday Night Lights, and then there is my Friday and your Friday. The non-Friday. We will work late today, and early tomorrow.
There is no perceptible end or beginning to a week, a month, or even a year. They all seem to run together. One day morphs into another. If not for the calendar in the lower right hand corner of the computer screen we could not distinguish one hour, one day or one month from another.
We are members of the “do da” tribe. Our primary interest in life, “do da” check come yet? We simply want to get our hands on that check. There are bills to pay, mouths to feed, and fears to borrow from tomorrow. It is only 10 weeks, 76 days, until Christmas!!!
In the mean time there is Halloween candy (lots of expensive Halloween candy and decorations) to buy, Thanksgiving Dinner to provide, and ….oh, what’s the use?
God only gave us 24 hours in a day because that is all we can handle…and to handle those few hours we need to sleep at least 8 of them! Yet, Friday is hardly over before we are consumed with the next day’s and next week’s perceived problems and cares. No one understands. Even worse, no one cares!
I mean, you have a $3,000.00 payroll to make next Friday, and you don’t have $100.00. Sure, you just made payroll this morning but now you are broke and you don’t know how you are going to make it next week. Everyone but you is busy planning their weekend and their holidays.
Your hair is prematurely gray, your head is balding earlier that your dad’s did, you are over weight, you have chewed the mouth piece off your favorite Dunhill, you have high blood pressure and your cholesterol is all out of wack…well duh !!!!!!!
Please allow the Tennessee Mountain Man to share one of the few things he is certain of…”There is a God and I am not Him and neither are you”. And, “He can and will do what you and I can’t, if we will let Him”. He cares about you. But, it is not just about you or me.
God is not a door knob or a tree as some have suggested but a person who also cares for those you care for… for those you must pay, provide insurance for and provide a safe work environment for. You are only His instrument for caring for others. Please, you do your thing and let Him do His before you wind up with heart disease and cancer like the Tennessee Mountain Man!
We get a new start every 24 hours. Let us not blow it by killing ourselves early missing out on what He has for us and depriving others of the blessings He has for them.
For those of you who stayed with me, here is some FREE HELP from Remote Helpdesk 1 for your on line business; but please, let it be until Monday and if you need any further help there are numerous outsourced it services resources at http://remotehelpdesk1.com and more are being added all the time.
Well, alas, the do da tribe and it’s intrepid members come to the end of another week! Let’s make a deal, Monty? I’ll take the weekend off if you will!
Monday will come soon enough, and all things big and small will still be there waiting for us.
Go to a ball game, go fishing or hunting, go to the county fair or to the October Fest and have a G R E A T Weekend !!
Grill one of those venison steaks for me, and I’ll see you around the tribal council Monday.
