flagHaven’t been posting, instead I have been wandering around the country, walking up and down the hallways of time, searching for that “O So Special Thing” that rows my boat.

I did not find it.

Memorial Day thru a different set of eyes. A very good post.

It’s a tradition. This is the third year I’m posting this on Memorial Day weekend for two specific reasons:

  1. I like it.
  2. Unapologetic laziness.

Years ago I worked at an American Legion post. I met a lot of people during my time there. Some of them were ordinary people, some were interesting, some were bizarre and some were bizarrely interesting.

One of the more interesting people was Jack.

Jack constantly spoke in non sequiturs. At first I thought that he was simply hard of hearing, but I began to realize there was a thread of continuity in the things he was saying. His conversations would go off in seemingly weird and irrelevant tangents, but they generally made it back to their original points.

I’ve often wished that I had written some of them down, unfortunately I’m a moron.

Here are a few of my favorites that haven’t been lost to my faulty…

Today in honor of Hartgen and Spitler who died in Aft Steering and my friend Fredrickson who never made it off the Flight Deck on July 27th, 1967 (Fire On The Flight Deck ) … This post is dedicated to you boys. We miss you.

Please take a moment out of your busy day to stop and consider all the freedom’s you currently enjoy and those who gave so much that you might have a rich and better life.

Then lower your head and pray for those who are still not home on this day.

If you know a vet, call him/her and tell them you appreciate their service and sacrifice for the common good of our country.

Better yet, if you can, take them out somewhere and buy them lunch and hug their neck.

Sweet Dreams …

Wow … Half of the month is gone and I flat did not notice, how about you?

You ever lie in your bed, that special early time in the morning, where you are not exactly asleep, but you still have your eyes closed?  I have just had another nice dream, one of those sweet dreams, where you just don’t want to open your eyes, and lose the image in your brain that has brought you release from the trials of life.

It’s A Dogs Life … But Someone Has To Do It.

Why is it that people actually refer to their pets as “family members.”  I hear it all the time, “the dog’s daddy or the dog’s mama” all the while referring to people as the paternal kinship of an animal.

On May 6th, a group of Pekin, Illinois, bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge, so they stopped.

George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, got off his Harley, walked through a group of gawkers, past the state trooper, and said, “What are you doing?” She replied, “I’m going to commit suicide.

Musak Munday … KT Oslin … How To Be Happy in Under 425 words.

Let’s face facts folks, “I am just too good looking for my height.”  There I said it … I feel much, much better.  That rumor has been floating around for quite sometime, and the fact is, “it is true.” 

The reason I know it is true, I am the one who is spreading it.

Weather Guessers Game

One more day and it should be over, or at least, a brief respite from some of this is possible. Let us hope so.

We had thunder-garbage and twisters yesterday, and we are scheduled for more today.  This time of the year, all of the local weatherman kind of get that glassy-eye look, sort of like a deer in the headlights, and they often go off the deep-end of the pool.  Yesterday was such the case, everything from baseball size hail, to teacup size was described.

The apocalyptic end of the world for me and the Misses was supposed to have arrived at 10:18 P.M. and it did not actually show up until well after three in the morning.  Several areas of our state did have tornadoes touch down and there was some damage, last I heard it did not cause any deaths, and that is always good news.  It did however drop 2.5 inches of rain on us, and the pond filled up overnight, went from 16” to  43” in the blink of…

Pass Me That Twinkie ….

TwinkiesA recent study in Sweden has confirmed this.  Researchers took samples of fat cells from volunteers over the course of several years; they discovered that no matter how much the subjects’ weights changed, their number of fat cells remained the same.

So your fat cells grow and shrink in your body, but they remain the same.  You are actually “friends with your fat.”

Isn’t that repulsive.
