Life is worth living if you know how to do it right. With so many adventures to be had across Sherman Country, I intend to live forever. It’s been going good so far, so we’ll see how forever looks.

As the old saying goes: life is uncertain, eat dessert first. I try to focus on the fun and exciting elements of life so that I don’t let the worries of the world weigh too heavily on my heart.

I tend to listen to William Shakespeare for most of my motivation. He’s told me how to live, how to love, and how to deal with my family’s sworn enemies. So, when he says, “A light heart lives long,” I tend to believe him. The only way my heart may be heavy is if I have too many snacks in a day.

Living forever may sound like a myth, but if you live your life right, you’ll be sure to leave lasting memories behind with those you love.


Here’s to an Irish Toast

The Irish know how to live. And they also know how to drink. When you put them together, you end up with unforgettable toasts like this one: “Here’s to a long life and a merry one. Here’s to a quick death and an easy one, a pretty girl and an honest one, a cold beer and another one.”

I’ll consider my life well-lived if I have the ability to have fun. I’ll drink, fall in love, eat my favorite foods, and enjoy myself every day. It’s like they say with work. If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. So far, that’s been the case. And if I have fun every day, I’ll never get too stressed.

One day you’re the best thing since sliced bread. The next, you’re toast.

That’s the thing about stress. It can send you to an early grave. So, I try not to let myself get that way. The moment I feel my heart beating too fast or my muscles getting too tense, I take a few deep breaths. I may head to the spa for a “me day” or head to the pub with my friends. Either way, the stress will dissipate, and I can get back on track.

If I plan to live forever, I have to take care of myself, right?

Live Forever

Burial Plots Are for Quitters

I once saw an ad for burial plots and thought that was the last thing I needed. Seriously. If I’m going to live forever, there’s no need for a burial plot. And to plan for one means that I’ve already given up on my dream.

I’d prefer to spend my money on things that will help me live forever. Since I’ve yet to find a cryogenic tank at the local hardware store, I’ll focus on other things.

Boats for my fishing trips. ATVs for my outdoor adventures. Snowmobiles for the winter. You know, the toys that make it fun to live life to the fullest.

“Make no mistake about why these babies are here – they are here to replace us.” – Jerry Seinfeld

Burial plots can be expensive. And since I don’t plan on dropping into one anytime in the near future, that money can be better spent focusing on my happiness.

I know how to take good care of myself. Sure, some people call me spoiled. But, perhaps, that’s because they haven’t decided that they want to live forever. As soon as they make that decision for themselves, they’ll likely be asking me where I go for all of my toys. And I’ll be happy to tell them.

Of course, don’t say anything to the local funeral home director. I don’t want him to think I’m putting him out of business.

Live Forever

Live Forever or Die Trying

I try to maintain my health. I eat right, I exercise, and I do my best to keep stress at bay. But really, good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

If I’m not going to live forever, I’ll die trying. And that means that I’m going to live the life I want. Since death is inevitable (right after taxes), there’s only one thing I can do. What’s that, you ask? Enjoy my time throughout Sherman Country.

Wouldn’t it be ironic to die in the living room?

Ernest Hemingway once said, “In order to write about life first you must live it.” It’s the truest advice I’ve ever heard. No romance author can write about a whirlwind romance without first having their own happily ever after, right?

So, while I may never pen the next Great American Novel, I do intend to live. And that means so much more than breathing and letting every day pass me by.

I want to go on wild adventures. I want to have the time of my life. And I want to have some incredible stories to share when I’m old and gray.


Part of living means having a place I can call home. It can house my adventures and provide a place for me to daydream until my next adventure. That’s when I need a pole barn. I dream of quality erections, and that means that Sherman Pole Buildings is the logical answer.

There’s no one better at quality erections than the folks at Sherman. They may not be able to help me live forever, but they’ll make sure that I have a quality erection for as long as I live. These steel buildings are built tough. They can withstand the elements, be customized to meet all of my needs and wants and have the features that will stand out in the middle of a land plot in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Kansas.

And if I do happen to live forever, I can count on my pole barn to live forever, too. That’s just how good these erections are. Since I won’t be shopping for burial plots anytime soon, I can head over to Sherman and shop for a barn. I know they’ll take good care of me. And if you want to live a longer life, you might want to consider one, too. It will give you a place to store all of your toys, at the very least.

Never ending
