October Index 2010

[10-12]  Encore … Play it Again 10-12-Nashville Tennessee (CMT) seems to be putting out a lot of material on time here lately.  Every entertainer has his/her own slant on time, where did it go?  Why is it just slipping by?  I have lost count of the number of years.  Having just turned 63 years of age on my last birthday, I often wonder the very same things.

[10-13]  Things I Love … My old bus, “Be ye not the first to try the latest, nor the last to cast the old aside” is what my grandmother used to tell me, something truly special about being the owner of an old hoopie that is no longer in production

[10-14] The Shakey Side … We had an earthquake yesterday morning.  Depending on who you talk to it was either 4.3 or 5.6 on the Richter scale. The camera’s in almost every Root N Scoot, Quick Pick, 7-11 convenience store in the state documented the event, we even had one or two eye witness reports.  And believe it or not, both girls had their teeth in their mouth and no curlers in their hair. A banner day for Oklahoma News reporting.  This was the most read post in October.

[10-15]  C’mon Shark One of my favorite commercials on television these days is the poor sap, sitting on a bench at the sea-shore, and a huge shark comes onto the pier and starts chewing on his shoulder-blade.  He of course is oblivious to all of this, as his cigarette urge has kicked in.  I know this is somehow sort of sick, but I can relate to this guy, the shark on the arm and all, it often for me, just feels kind of natural.

[10-18]  Don’t Make Me Watch That Again Women think with their heart, more emotional and all that, men, well men are pigs.  We all know about men, they think with parts of their anatomy that cannot be discussed here, because this is a family site.  Women they love us, we are their white knights in shinning armor, we save them from the pitfalls of life, we surround them with comfort, provide for their every need.  We are the subject of every waking moment of their day, in their thoughts, hopes and dreams.

[10-19]  Cat House Tuesday Nothing out of the ordinary here, unless you look close.  In the first paragraph you will find it, the word “Sex Worker.“  This is what caught my eye while reading the article.  I wondered, “Is this some kind of new on the job training I was hopelessly unaware of?”

[10-20]  Another Hard Pull Kind of a hard pull into Amarillo Texas, wind was blowing fiercely, over in Santa Rosa, New Mexico it almost took us off the road, trucker wandered over to the shoulder, pinged the windshield, there will be $200 to cough up around December when the air turns chilly.

[10-21]  Higher Education It has been pointed out to me this week, that I have inadvertently been spelling hesitaiton wrong.  A classmate/member/lovely person has brought this to my attention recently.  I sincerely apologize for this apparent mistake.  I hereby apologize to her, the Oklahoma Board Of Public Education, and any other interested party for this apparent oversight.

[10-22]  Open Grazing My wife is absolutely amazing.  She can walk up to a refrigerator, which I might add, “I have found empty and very uninviting” and from this box, she will prepare something delicious and healthy for me to eat.

[10-23]  In Other Words Blogging … First time I ever posted on WordPress, this nutty professor logged in with “now that was depressing.”  My first comment was not all that positive in nature.

[10-24]  Summer Ends …  Not being a big fan of October, I put up the Hammock this week.  I sure hate that, along with all the blood & gore associated with television this time of the year.  October is the Devil’s Holiday, or at least it seems that way.  People cutting up people, biting each other’s necks, the constant din of chain saws invading my space.  Who needs that?

[10-25]  Shoppin With Mama … Strangely we found ourselves with a little extra scrilla in our pockets, we decided that shopping would be the endeavor for the day.  (Kids refer to money as scrilla these days, if y’all aint hip, it surely isn’t my fault.  “Yo Mama got mad scrilla. We’re gonna rock the mall later.”) So we set out in earnest and during the course of the day, ended up walking some five different Malls.

[10-26]  Attitude Adjustment This morning, I am cruising down the boulevard; all is well in my world.  Traffic is light, most of it has cleared out, and the road for the most part is quite empty.  I am pleased, I chuckle and think, “If I was any happier I would have to pay an amusement tax.”

[10-27]  The Naked News Some things to worry about during your driving test, left turns, most accidents occur during left turns, yeah no poopy, I knew a couple who spent their entire life turning right, just because of this.   Other things to worry about are your turn signals, traffic and naked people walking down the street during your test.

[10-28]  Greed To Go … Another full moon, I hate it when I get this way.  Oh well… Another not so quite lucid post from my world or what is left of it.  Remember that old line:  “It was the best of times … It was the worst of times.”  Think I saw it on a episode or Cheer’s a long, long time ago.  Now let’s to put it into perspective.

[10-29]  Give Me A Break File … If you are a member of the human race … Please press one.  If you live on the planet Earth … Please press button two.  If you wish to speak to a representative that understands English … Good Luck.

[10-30]  More Trick Than Treat ….  One more day until the end of the month, I am back with a vengeance it seems, taking a year off to re-charge and get all my stuff in one sock, has paid off.  I have posted most days and have found something relevant to say, almost every day except the 17th.
