Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving To All my American friends!


Hope you have a good day and a prosperous year! (
I plan on watching American Football on my tablet at work!)

Got off to a late start today. Alarm went off and I went back to sleep. I popped tall 35 minutes later. Oversleeping hasn’t happened in years. I had to bypass my morning exercises to get back on schedule. Now I’m ready for work on a very windy stormy day.


We have a cold front that’s stalled very near us. That usually means several days of wind and rain. Just in time for the weekend.

Again, have a wonderful day!

Wacky Wednesday

It’s a weird morning. It’s supposed to start raining this afternoon/evening, but sitting on the porch this morning I could hear rain, pretty far away, but approaching. When I looked, it looked like a beautiful Caribbean day to the south, and end of the world to the north.


This picture doesn't do justice to how bad it looked 5 minutes earlier.

(I love our utility pole, transformer and power lines right across our field of view  here)

So I rekkon I’ll be taking the car instead of the bike today, although I was thinking yesterday that I could get home after work before the rain started.

Have a good day!

Ferguson Missouri

I usually stay away from politics and news here, but:

I don’t know what’s going on in Ferguson Missouri. A known gang member was shot and killed trying to wrestle a policeman’s gun from him. Physical evidence proves it.

What’s the problem?

If he had succeeded in stealing the policeman’s gun, he probably would have been a big hero in certain circles… Like in prison or the groups that are rioting and looting Ferguson.

My Funny Rake

I bought this small rake, because it’s small and can get up under the bushes and along the walls better. It was cheap, about $8.


I noticed in the store that the sticker said the rake has poly steel tines. Looked plastic to me. Maybe poly steel means plastic coated metal..


When I got home, I noticed that the sticker said it had 22 tines. I don’t get 22  tines when I count them.
Must be the wrong sticker on the  rake! I don’t care, this rake was exactly what I was looking for. Funny though, wonder if anybody else noticed.

It was a good weekend. We went and saw the movie “Interstellar” on Friday. It was really good. A full three hours long. Saturday was a beach  day and Sunday was a football day.

Have a good week!

Casual Friday, a Protest


Who invented Causal Friday? It’s stupid, it doesn’t rhyme, and the words don’t even start with the same letter.

Every day all week should be like casual Friday. And Fridays should be….

Wait for it….



Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? Snappy sounding, both words start with the same letter, and you couldn’t do any work because you’d mess up your clothes!

Alternatively, I found this: It seems like it could be a good idea too.


That’s what I’m talkin about!

Have a good weekend!
