Musings of a Dull Boy

Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!

I have been building my confidence talking with a camera recording, and I will tell you, even though it was friendlies watching, I was terrified!

In the 20 minute live stream, I show one of the world’s largest rocking chairs. It is somewhere in the choppiness of it all.

I give a shout out to my parents, inlaws,ย  Cryptameria, and others for supporting me in these attempts. If you subscribe and enable notifications, it will tell you when I am practicing.

I am open for challenges. I double-dog dare you to give me one.

All work and no play has made Benjamin from Brothers Campfire a dull man. I could use a few fun challenges.

Because this isn’t about money, I don’t have to worry about editing. I like it live, real, and raw.

I can always delete if it is that bad.

Today, I worked a LOT of hours. We prepared for a memorial service. Perhaps Trish, the funeral director can critique my choice for tomorrow. (The rest of you can as well!)

Death is final, and sad. Sometimes people need to feel their emotions so they do not act out aggressively.

I don’t know if that is the view of my job or not.

Frankly, I don’t care. I think there is merit in letting a feeling run its course constructively. Too many times men are compelled to bottle them up.

Well, this was short, and sweet bitter.

I will see you on the road to work more than likely if you turn on notifications.

    Hahaha I am not a funeral director – I just manage the funeral home

    That is very nice funeral suit ๐Ÿ‘”

    Dark, dulled or muted colors is usually way to go.

    Hope they figure out what happen?? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      Well, it is better to elevate your status! Thank you for the approval on the duds!

      They know what happened. I know what happened. I just have to be careful what I say online.

    I like your suit choice.

    Your videos are really good! You are better at them than you think my friend. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I donโ€™t have any ideasโ€ฆ maybe one will come to me.

    Thatโ€™s so true about men, yโ€™all are told not to show emotions way too much. Itโ€™s not healthy.

    Funerals are never fun. {{hugs}} ๐Ÿ’•

            Ahh! Yes, those videos are for my youngest daughter, she is trying to learn Spanish, so I made her a playlist of some I found for kidโ€™s.

            My father is Spanish and I love the Spanish language. Iโ€™m not fluent in it, my father had to tell me what he was saying in English, so I only picked up a little bit of it.

            One day, want to learn how to have entire conversations in Spanish.

            You speak it VERY well. I think you would be fantastic learning it. That name you came up with for your gang is brilliant! Very cool. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜
