Hilarious, Puzzling, Sad, Exhilarating, Heartbreaking - And All True

Howdy, and Welcome!

Y'all come on in and sit a spell. I've got stories to tell.

This is a photo of me, Paul Timmy.

This is me, Paul Timmy.

Hi! I'm Paul Timmy, aka Paul T Oyler, aka Thadeus. (Look for the explanation of the Thadeus moniker in a post soon.) Anyone who has known me well for any length of time will confirm that I can be a bit of a loner. At a party, I'd much rather find a quiet corner, listen to music and observe life around me. I am much more comfortable in my own little world. That is kind of what I am going to do with this blog (actually it is going to be more of a journal), EXCEPT, I am leaving the door open so you can join me, or at least peek in and see what is going on inside my head. (Warning - I'm sometimes scared of what is going on inside there!)

If you are still with me, come on along to read the whole scoop about me, the title of this journal, and the purpose of it.

Things That I Write About

The Story of My Come To Jesus Night

By late 1982, my life was pretty messed up. I had lost the good-paying job I had had since I was 16. I was working flea markets, selling everything I had that was worth anything, and whatever money I did make, I was spending on low-quality weed, cheap beer (think plain white generic can, “Beer”),…

An Overdue Update On My Weight Loss Journey

I know it has been almost a month since my last post, which was about my life-long weight problem. I apologize for not writing anything since. I intend to write at least one post a week, and hopefully two per week. I’d like to do one post a week that will include an update on…

The Story of my Struggle with Weight and Weight Loss

I have a serious weight problem. I have struggled with it for most of my life, but I’ve usually thought something like, “I’ll deal with it, eventually.” Or, “That’s just the way God made me, so I’m good with that.” But I have to admit it – I am morbidly obese. If I don’t do…

How That One Night Changed the 70s For Me

I wrote two weeks ago about The Day That Changed Everything. That was the day my Dad was killed in a truck accident. In that post, I wrote about the events of that evening and the horrible day after my 13th birthday. I know I have more stories to tell about that day and its…

On taking a Facebook break and fighting phone addiction

Last Sunday (Sept. 15) I started what I am calling a “phone detox” and at least a two-week break from Facebook. I knew I was spending way too much time checking “what’s new” on Facebook, seeing what friends were doing, sharing funny (or not-so-funny) memes, and generally wasting time. And 90% of the time I…

I was working flea markets, selling everything I had that was worth anything, and whatever money I did make, I was spending on low-quality weed, cheap beer (think plain white generic can, "Beer"), speed (amphetamines), and acid (LSD). Many of the 'friends' that I had associated with for the past few years had ...

Or, "That's just the way God made me, so I'm good with that." But I have to admit it - I am morbidly obese. If I don't do something it will kill me.

I knew I was spending way too much time checking "what's new" on Facebook, seeing what friends were doing, sharing funny (or not-so-funny) memes, and generally wasting time. And 90% of the time I was doing this on my phone. During the evening. When I should be focusing on my wife, even if we ...
