An interesting picture that shows us we live in curious times.


I wonder what the deal is here.

Someone just said something funny about the SPLC

I pointed out that they ought to be on their own list of hate groups and someone else said that because they are the monitor of hate groups and belong on their own list they are a self-licking ice cream cone.

Pretty good analogy.

I just read where the NAACP stuck its head into the business of the Atlanta Falcons


 by demanding that they sign Colin Kaepernick.

The NAACP has no business telling an NFL team who to or who to not sign a contract with. It’s pretty presumptuous and it will be interesting to see what Atlanta does.

Hopefully they will tell the NAACP to shove it and then turn to its players and tell them that any of them that take a knee during the National Anthem can find work elsewhere.

I have posted before that the NAACP has out served its usefulness years ago and ought to be disbanded.  Conduct like this proves it.


I have spent my life sharing the beliefs of Dr. King and the belief that people ought to be judged strictly by the content of their character. The way things have seemed to go the past few years make me wonder if it wasn’t a waste.

One of the hardest things to get out of a car guy is to find one that will do what YOU want him to do with it and not what HE wants to do with it.



I have been told (and believe) that this holds double for motorcycles.

I have been watching a friend trying to get his motorcycle painted. He does not want anything done to it except he wants it a different color than it is. It’s really quite simple but the guy running the paint shop doesn’t seem to understand that the simple process is to take the various motorcycle assemblies and spray them. That’s all. He doesn’t have to do any more or any less.

Yet the guy can’t seem to understand that my friend does not want flames, pin stripes and all the rest of the fancy hoo-ha that the man is capable of. My friend doesn’t want flames painted on the gas tank or fancy detailing on the fenders. He just wants the assemblies painted a certain shade of blue. That’s all.

I suggested to him he tell the prospective painter that he take the bike to a shop that does collision repairs because they seem to understand the concept of making something look like an original.

When I have any work done on my vehicle I take it to a mechanic shop. I know a couple of ‘car guys’ that will do me a lot of favors but I can’t seem to get car guys to understand the word ‘stock’. They all seem to want to do something to my pickup, even if it is something like put in a little hotter spark plug or something.

I tend to read in surges. I’ll beat a subject to death.



Several years ago I read a few books about the French Foreign Legion and put the books up. Since I have mentioned the Legion a couple of times in some other works I broke a couple of the books out and skimmed them.

While neither of the two authors made careers out of the Legion, one served out his full term and the other deserted. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out which of the two were the most successful in the Legion. It also is pretty easy to figure out who was the better man.

Both men served in the famed 2nd Regiment of Foreign Parachutists, otherwise known as 2eme Regiment Etranger de Parachutiste or the 2e REP. This means both served pretty much in the same outfit. It is not an apples/oranges comparison.

One guy put a lot of effort into doing well, the other simply felt sorry for himself and sluffed off.

The guy that sat down, realized he had gotten into more than he wanted, accepted it and toughed it out probably is doing well because he has integrity and is willing to work.


No telling what happened to the screw-off.

What interests me is that this seems like just another case of getting out of something just what you put into it.

We are rapidly coming to post 3000 and a crossroads

I am seriously thinking of turning this into something that is not daily as I feel I jumped the shark years ago.

On the other hand I have done this as an effort for me to vent and stay sane.

It has actually been a pretty good discipline for me and I may continue simply for that reason.

Time will tell and we shall see what we shall see.

Things are cyclic and today is a part of the cycle.

I am at a crossroads and am wondering what to do when I retire which could now pretty much be anytime although I will procrastinate retirement for as long as I can.

It is always a good idea to be ready to make your next move and now it is time for me to plan the sequence of events that will set me up for retirement. That is because it could happen in a heartbeat.

Be prepared.

I feel tired this morning for reasons I won't get into.

There are times that getting decent sleep sucks.

The night before a lot of things I can't seem to doze off easily. I often reach for the bottle but have stopped doing that as of late.

I have to do something today and will be tired.

That sucks.

One of the things I have been watching the Left do is call Trump a racist and a sexist.

Sexists do not enable a woman to become the first woman to build a skyscraper in NYC.

Racists do not hire black females to be the CEO of one of their companies.

I seriously wish the left would start telling the truth for a change.

They just hate him because they hate him and don't have the balls to admit it so they have to come up with lame excuses.

I don't deal with terrorists or procrastinators



Gearing up to go back to work is a nuisance because people do not learn. It is like people are untrainable. In a couple of weeks someone will piss me off with stupidity and procrastination.


My schedule is that I leave for work at early Tuesday morning and I return 22 days later, on a Wednesday evening. It is pretty much clockwork and the day before I leave, Monday, is for getting grub and tying up loose ends.


Yet there are a few people that insist on calling me on Monday to do something for them. You can predict this with almost 100% regularity.


Often the very people that call me on Monday have been told daily that if they have any business to conduct they should get it done by the weekend. Of course, few people do this and then wonder why I act the way I do.


Gearing up is essential for the lifestyle. Without it I will have no income and poverty sucks.



I do not really like living this way but if I do not put my foot down then nothing will ever get done.
What a spin on the recent right wing rally that had been attacked by a mad motorist.


They are attributing it to the fact that it was a right wing rally.


It seems that they have not decided to lay the blame on the Leftist that was driving the car.



This kind of spin is clearly a bit part of the Fake News that President Trump tweets about.

How come most of the guys that call Melania Trump names are

generally married to butt ugly women that never finished high school?

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

I saw this on Facebook. Some guy called Mrs. Trump a mail order tramp and commented she speaks English with an accent.

He had a picture of himself with his wife so I could see what his other half looks like. It really wasn't too pretty and she didn't have the aura of being a PhD.

I was ready to light him up hard but I didn't. 

I suggested he post a newer picture of his wife that has been taken since she lost all that weight, opened her own business, finished college and learned to speak five languages....You know, like Melania Trump did.

I didn't expect an answer and didn't get one but I have been around long enough to know that there was a lot of stuttering and stammering on the other end.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Maybe more later today.

Got booted out of the rack to help a friend today

after being up late all night watching a movie with another friend.

The friend that woke me wanted me to simply be a witness because he was having petty legal problems. It makes sense to CYA with a witness.

Lousy night's sleep last night

Because I was up too damned late Tuesday. I must be getting old because it took me too long to recover.

**************************

Anger, depression and alcohol is a bad combination. 

I must be getting smarter these days because I don't reach for the alcohol as fast as I used to when when I do I use a lot less.

******************************************

A few days ago I decided to smoke my middle of the year cigarette. I was planning on one either Memorial Day or 4 July but things came up.  

I decided to couple it with a 24 ounce beer and found it to be a delightful buzz. 

Enter patience. You have to wait for a real long period before you try it again to get the same result.

Much of what addiction is about is trying to get the same feeling you did the first time you did something, be it alcohol, drugs, tobacco or even and orgasm.

If I am going to be able to get the same feeling I am going to have to wait for about 6 months to try it again.

A couple beers and a Camel might be a pretty good birthday present come November.

My ISP is acting up.

I hate when that happens.

Last night it ran poorly and today is is either in or out.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Yesterday someone called me a t the last minute and asked for an airport pickup which I did. 

I wish I had more notice, though because a midnight airport run really screws up the schedule for the next day.

A day of hauling stuff down back.

The lot line between my place and the neighbors is a useless hill.

By mutual agreement we let it go to weeds. Every few years it's chainsaw madness time and everything 1.5 inches or bigger gets hacked down and dragged into the woods to rot.

It has been several years and I spent the other day getting torn up by brambles and tearing the hill up. Now I am hauling the stuff down back. It's going to be an all day chore because there is a lot of it. 

I hate this kind of work

Today is going to be an interesting day

I am helping a neighbor get a camper/trailer ready to move out of the campground he has it parked at.

He got kicked out and I know what happened. He was accused of something he didn't do by someone that wanted his site.

Some of those camp sites are just nasty places full of sleazy politics and back biting.

In other news my wig arrived and I think I am going to get my new driver's license picture taken in drag.

Why not? Time to hop on the band wagon

I got (kinda) caught up

I am responsible for two homes and one of them has an HOA to deal with. 

It is a long story but I had to do some emergency gardening to get them off of my back.

I won't lie. If I ran the HOA I would be mad at me too.

Now at my residence I gotta mow the lawn
