Open Carry: If you are going to carry an illegal loaded semiautomatic firearm in New York City, it is probably best to not press your luck by trying to beat a $2 subway fare. Amazing what people will do and then how much time they have to think about it later on …
Droning On: I noted at the bank today the cover of time magazine had a Military Drone on the front cover. This past weekend CBS had quite a bit of airtime, devoted to the same subject, it appears that they are hot now. They are being used not just by the military but police departments, national guard units, you name it. So far this tool for terrorists has only taken out some 59 known bad guys, but has killed something like 34,000 poor citizens who were listed as “collateral damage.”
Mans’ best doing man’s worst … Fly one over my property and I can assure you “it will not come home.” If it does it will be full of buckshot from my 12 gauge.
Fifty years of James Bond … It is kind of slow around here, we are currently being snowed upon which is okay, because we could use the moisture. So I find this cinema love fest on television, “Fifty Years of James Bond” and I am of course, amazed and amused at the same time.
Fifty years just doesn’t seem possible and then there is the always engaging Double O Seven loading freshly shot pheasants into the back of a truck on a French Chalet and the tag on the tailgate is there plain to see …. California.
Finally something for us old geezers: Silicone Valley has introduced the first edition of the new baby boomer computer and keyboard. Supplies are limited at this time.
Change the Batteries – Set it to Vibrate – or just remove it: A prisoner in a Shri Lanka prison was found to have stuffed a cellphone up his wah-zoo (chocolate speedway) and two “hands free” packs with it (good idea). Everything was going just fine until someone he had just called … returned his call … which did not amuse his handlers in the least.
New Religious Experience in Texas: Do you owe money on a car? Finance company banging on the door, here is a tip. Crush it. At the same time, save yourself the drudgery of doing lawn mowing this summer, throw in a couple of lawnmowers for good measure. The Church of Later Day Saints is alive and well, crushing lawnmowers and cars south of the Red River.
Time is running out: Well, well, well … Here it is the 13th of the month, and of course, a lot of you guys have done nothing to improve your marital status or the relationship you share with “your significant other” and you are for the most part, dead in the water.
Having procrastinated for literally weeks, you find yourself adrift in an ocean full of sharks, and you suddenly discover YOU are the chum. Oh-my-gosh, down to just one more day, a scant 24 hour period with which to redeem yourself. Someone needs to throw you a life vest.
As I am a generous sort, I will give you a hint.
Take her to someplace she has never been, to a place where she can relax, enjoy a good meal, get some rest.
Flowers are nice, chocolate will work with some girls, and there is always the occasional choochie-coupon to be redeemed. But if you want to make her happy, take her somewhere for the holiday, wine and dine her.
It works. On Valentines Day, I asked mine one year, “Can I kiss you in a place you have never been kissed?” and she looked up at me with those big brown eyes, eyes so wide that a man could get lost in and then she said … Omaha Nebraska?
Now I have to go, Dr. Phil is coming on …. “His Girlfriend has Robbed him Blind.” …. Rebecca says her sister has betrayed her by sleeping with the important men in her life; Steve says his girlfriend keeps stealing his money.
I am just a sucker for love I suppose.
