Q is for Quandary

Which is where I am on several issues. Like watching the Middle East meltdown and laughing as that rascally rascal Putin keeps on pulling Jo-Jo’s strings while China outright threatens what will amount to Global Thermonuclear War. Sound familiar? It is the game that Matthew Broderick played against the WOPR computer in War Games. ExceptContinue reading “Q is for Quandary”

School’s in for Winter

It appears that with the dropping temperatures come rising expectations to have our fireplace working tomorrow. They should have our covered porch done tonight. You know one of the things I like to do socially is smoke weed. I always have. However, with the pandemic and the New Abnormal, I don’t want to die toContinue reading “School’s in for Winter”

Memories

I’d better write about this subject while I still have a horse in the race. I have always had a great memory. Of course, the Domestic Despot Karen says I have a very selective memory. I beg to differ. It’s just getting worse. I can remember the most minute details of the most immemorable timesContinue reading “Memories”

Law and Disorder

I am one who does not use this blog to influence anyone or air my own political beliefs. There is enough divisiveness in this country already. I like to have fun with this medium and share some cool stories and observances. I purposely stay away from making this a political forum. I can’t help butContinue reading “Law and Disorder”

Obedience

     The morning sun peeked over the pink mountains illuminating the entire valley.      It was going to be another scorcher. The Yuki Valley could get that way for about six weeks out of the year, and it was eight days into it. One hundred degrees is hot anyway, but throw in seventy-five percent humidity,Continue reading “Obedience”

Are You Serious?

The Domestic Despot enlightened me yesterday to a website that actually reminds people five times a day that they are going to die. Lovely. You don’t need a website. Go look in the mirror. Beneath all the mascara, make-up, and foundation, etc. you are dying. Underneath the bleached and dyed hair, the colored nails, theContinue reading “Are You Serious?”

Panic on the Titanic

I just got finished watching James Cameron’s Titanic for about the 100th time. It never gets old and I find the storyline as captivating as any. But why was there so much panic on the Titanic? I understand concern and worry, but there was no need to panic on the luxury liner. The trio ofContinue reading “Panic on the Titanic”

Be on the Alert

Why? Why do you want to live life continually “on the alert” for things which may or may not, happen? Go gives a flying shit anyway (as if shit could fly)? I am drawing the line on alerts. I just got an alert from my bank telling me “you have no alerts at this time.”Continue reading “Be on the Alert”

Natural Selection?

Why is it, when everything seems to be going great on planet Earth, that Mother Nature rises up, slaps us in the chops and reminds us that our pass in this sphere of existence is all too temporary? The latest death toll spread over 8 different states, is 64. And that is just ONE tropicalContinue reading “Natural Selection?”
