For anyone who has never seen the movie Forrest Gump my blog title is riff on the blockbuster hit. Here is a refresher:


What do you hope for when you open a box of chocolates? Do you have your favorite type that you will immediately reach for and pick out?

My blog was always quite diverse in many ways and I do have a long term goal with it. For now I just need to get back into the routine of posting. I have several posts that were drafted quite some time ago and were very popular. There is no need to let that hard work go to waste.

Of course I hope you will enjoy my blogging box of chocolates in the meantime. If nothing else it will get Google’s attention that Pastmycurfew is back in the game for now.

I feel like I have training wheels on again with my apprehension to write. Once those come off I will proceed (or not proceed) in theΒ long term direction I have hoped for.

Have a fantastic rest of your weekend! πŸ™‚

I have been told (many times) that I really need to write a book about my life. The past 50+ years have been an exciting ride, and these days I find myself with a great many passions. However, I feel that this website is a much more personal way with which to share my musings, stories and commentary.

  1. Hi Mike
    Yes, get back in the saddle. With all the love sent out when you resumed with your last post, you should realize you are missed and there is a place for you in the blogging world.
    So, when I open a box of chocolates I look for dark chocolate first and then the soft kind, like truffle content. Does this say what one’s personality is or something about who they are? Don’t know if it has ever been analyzed, but an interesting concept. Or is it just a food preference? When I was a youngster I went for the hard centers. Maybe now it is for self preserving of teeth!
    Hopefully everyone will say their preference and we can figure this out. lol

    • Excellent answer and I should posed that question, Mary! I don’t know what it says other than the majority of us like chocolate in one form or another! Thank you for your wonderful kind words! πŸ™‚

  5. “Mamma always said…” You know it’s going to be good, when prefaced by that.

    It’s so true Mike and if your blog is a box of chocolates I hope for caramel and something with peanut butter. Oh, and DARK chocolate. πŸ˜€
