Well, I went to see RadioMan this afternoon. He had his first real meal in several days at our insistence. It appears that the funeral will be Saturday, but I’ll be putting more information up as I find it. There’s several other things I’d like to put up and discuss. Let’s just make it simple: […]

After a spike of visitors in the past couple months, we’re finally edging back down to where we were before the “myspace” linkfest (which failed, I may add) was started by people attempting to hotlink to my photos. Big no-no people. I pay for bandwidth, you don’t. Besides, I’d prefer to be remembered for more […]
With all that’s going on, I’m amazed George W. hasn’t blamed Global Warming on the AIDS Quilt.
Can you read these right the first time? 1) The bandage was wound around the wound. 2) The farm was used to produce produce. 3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4) We must polish the Polish furniture. 5) He could lead if he would get the lead out. […]
Courtesy of Moonglow, as most jokes are. 🙂 Due to the climate of political correctness now pervading America , Kentuckians, Tennesseans and West Virginians will no longer be referred to as “HILLBILLIES.” You must now refer to them as APPALACHIAN-AMERICANS. And furthermore HOW TO SPEAK ABOUT WOMEN AND BE POLITICALLY CORRECT: 1. She is not […]
Morning everyone. The past 12 hours have proved themselves to be interesting. Sidney Sheldon, the author, has passed. I read elsewhere where in Florida a rape victim was jailed on an old warrant, and supposedly one of the attendants refused to give her the second dose of her “morning after pill” due to religious convictions. […]
We used to, years ago, have a saying where I worked: don’t stress, it’s all in 8. (Meaning, after hours, there’s nothing more you can do about it, since we weren’t allowed to work overtime.) Today’s one of those days. It’s all in 8. I do the best I can, I move on. What I […]
You’ve got to wonder what precisely happens when a person suffers a debilitating stroke. Take Miss Evelyn, for example, who suffered one last April, and short circuits out on most things if they’re newer than 30 years ago. In one brief conversation, she’ll ask if her husband (who died in April 2005) will be joining […]
A little old lady was sitting on a park bench in Trailer Estates, a Florida mobile home park. A man walked over and sits down on the other end of the bench After a few moments, the woman asks, “Are you a stranger here?” He replies, “I lived here years ago.” “So, where were you […]

Lest you think I have just been sitting back, doing nothing, here are some things of note: The Book has been corrected, so if you order, you get one with no known typos. Since I’m the only one to have ordered a copy, I’ve got the collectors edition Hehehe. I am beginning to understand how […]
To StreetGlo.Net who make all sorts of Automobile/Biker/Boat reflective decals and more. They’ve provided me a couple to put on Saffyre (the most AWESOME “Silver Blue”), and as soon as I can get them installed, I’ll be snapping shots and putting them on line. Visit them and see what they can do for you!
Had a decent dinner at Cracker Barrel tonight, and have been moving slow ever since. Still no word on Radioman’s dad, though I do believe things are getting worse. His sister didn’t even tell the grandkids their grandfather was dying. She just told them “he was sick”. C’mon. use some common sense woman. My life […]
We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the “seniors’ special” was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99. “Sounds good,” my wife said. “But I don’t want the eggs.” “Then I’ll have to charge you $2.49 because you’re ordering ‘a la carte’”, the waitress warned her. “You mean I’d have to pay […]
Each Friday night after work, Bubba would fire up his outdoor grill and cook a venison steak. But, all of Bubba’s neighbors were Catholic….And since it was Lent, they were forbidden from eating meat on Friday. The delicious aroma from the grilled venison steaks was causing such a problem for the Catholic faithful that they […]
That’s my words of advice to Cox Communications, who insist of using an automated system to overlay local commercials over the syndicated commericals on most stations, but most unsuccessfully Food Network and HGTV (the two stations I watch most frequently). You’ll get the beginning of the syndicated, cut off with the local commerical. Of course, […]
just to prove that life really IS sweet. NSFW, however. After the jump.
Ok, life is getting somewhat back to normal, boys and girls. I’m thankful for that. I’m thankful for the coffee that’s warming me up, for fleece to keep my feet toasty, and for Roxette Bunny™ who is always excellent company. I’m thankful for the friends I have, and also sorry that Radioman’s father is slipping […]
….The Book, also in Paperback binding. The price may seem a bit strange, but that’s because of the difference in binding costs. You can get your paperback copy shipped in 3-5 days. The hardbound, of course, is also available. That gets printed and shipped in 10-15 days. You can use either link, however, to purchase […]
Ole is a farmer in Minnesota. He is in need of a new milk cow, and hears about a nice one for sale over in Nordakota (that would be ‘North Dakota’ for you non-Scandanavians out there). He drives to Nordakota, finds the farm, and takes a look at the cow. Then he reaches under to […]
It may not be after 9pm, but I’m calling it after hours with me anyway. 🙂 What a long, strange day it’s been, with certain people overstepping their boundaries, making enemies, and the like. I’m glad I was able to hold my tongue and keep my wits. Traffic was a bear this afternoon, even though […]
Now available for purchase. Click here. (That loud noise? It was me, exhaling, glad that it’s all over, at least until 2009.)
