Welcome to “A Day in the Life and Other BS.” This blog is dedicated to the memory of my close friend Brian Muldrow and my cousin and lifelong friend David Morales. We lost Brian back in 2008, November 27, Thanksgiving Day. Dave passed away on the 25th of June 2015. Dave and Brian were like brothers to me, even closer than my own brother who was 10 years younger.

Brian was known by many names, aka Bri, Big Bri, Bro, Murly, Muldoon, Mugrosso, Drunken Gazelle and a few others not fit to print. Dave was known by a few names as well, Davi (pronounce Duh-vee), Duncan, Bro, Daveydildo and Zonked Out Zebra. Man I loved those guys! Brian was perhaps one of the wittiest people I have ever had the pleasure to have known. He was a well read humorists who always had an interesting, if not a bit twisted view of daily life. Dave might not have been as well read but had an incredible sense of humor and a completely twisted view on life as did I.

We were the best of friends for over 40 years. In that time we shared a lot of life and lot’s 0f laughs. We were always able to find humor in even the most mundane of circumstances. Yeah we were quite a team! We were like Manny, Moe and Jack, the Pep Boys. No, actually most days we were more like the 3 Stooges, God we had some good times, some really good times. Lord knows I miss these two clowns. I’m sorry I wasn’t there when you needed me the most Bri, and Dave  I feel honored that I was able to help you the last two years of your life. I’m sorry I didn’t do more.

A Day in the Life and Other B.S.” is my attempt at keeping their memory alive. Whenever I sit down to write I will be reminded of them. They were family.  Farewell my friends,                                                                                      Until we meet again…

Even in my wildest dreams I could never foresee, things turning out this way.

 Some days I’m happy, some days I’m not.                                                                                 Some days I’m haunted by feelings that I’d long forgot.                                                       Some days are better than others and some days suck.                                                         When every song on the radio reminds me of us,                                                                   some days.

Some days I’m lonely, some days I’m afraid.                                                                            Some days I can’t stop thinking bout all the mistakes we made.                                            And some days I’m angry, really feeling the rage.                                                                    Little voice inside my head keeps screamin,’                                                                               You gotta turn the page.                                                                                                               Some days, some days…                                         John Sausedo  3/2018                                         ——————————————————————————————————-                                                              Sixty-five  (birthday song)

Woke up again this morning thanked the Lord for another day.                                         When you get old like me, you begin to see,                                                                                 each days a gift from God.                                                                                                                     Ain’t just another morning, because you see,                                                                               day belongs to me, it’s my birthday.

Sixty-five and I’m still alive never thought I’d live this long.                                                Never dreamed I’d see 30, thought I’d be dead and gone.                                                          But the Lord had other plans for me.                                                                                               So much more for me to see,                                                                                                             so much more for me to be…                                                                                                                                                                                                                 John Sausedo  9/5/2016                         ——————————————————————————————————-

Dare To Live Your Life      John Sausedo    8/2016

If you long to live a life of excellence,
overflowing with love and perpetual happiness,
do so boldly, bravely and enthusiastically!
Be tenacious in your endeavor.
Face down your fears and be set free!
Dare to live your life!
If you long to live an extraordinary life,
purposeful, passionate and blessed beyond measure,
Live selflessly, love unconditionally.
Laugh loud and laugh often.
Learn to see the beauty in the simple things in life.
Dare to live your life!
If you hope to live your life to its fullest potential
Walk with the Spirit, Live by the Word.
Be an Inspiration!
A living example of goodness and gentleness
all the days of your life…
Dare to live your life…
Dare to love  your life…

The thing the 60’s did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

As I get older, I get smaller. I see other parts of the world I didn’t see before. Other points of view. I see outside myself more.                                                                                                                                                                            Neil Young
