0201 Bus Stuff:  HOW MUCH DID IT COST The most frequent question I am asked about my bus is “How much did it cost?” Which I freely admit, kind of irritates me. American’s want to know the cost of everything, but at the same time, I always seem to find that they know the true value of nothing.   You ever notice that? No […]

0202 Frozen Entree Snowed here yesterday, big time!  To hear it from the local news channels it was tantamount to the end of times, but we survived.  Kind of hard getting out of the front gate this morning, good thing I have a gasoline loving four wheel drive and one good credit card. Just returned from the CPA […]

0204 Remember When You have made it to Friday, congratulations, the long awaited weekend is just now appearing on your horizon.  Good job! Desperately seeking a respite from the snow, I plan on slinking out for some shopping today (Yes Margaret, men do occasionally go shopping, we just refer to it as Knocking Around).  Might go looking for […]

0207 After The Storm Pipes froze on us this weekend, Old Man Winter rolled through our neck of the woods, and illustrated to us once again, “Who it is  that is in charge, and it is not us.”  I find it interesting, that we all shop for groceries, we get to work, we help each other out of the […]

0209 Minus Twelve And Holding Another winter storm has come roaring in and taking its collective pound of flesh.  Either it is old age or just me, but I am tiring of it, I want some spring time and I want it now.  That is the way it is when you live in The Heartland … Oklahoma. I remember the […]

0211 Fishin’ Around You ever watch this movie “Ghost?”  It stars Whoopie Goldberg, Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayzee.  I am watching this thing today, doing a lot of television, because of the winter storms.  There is a scene in this movie, where Swayzee is standing across the street from the shop where Whoopie is set up […]

0214 A Day For Lovers Greetings to all of you, today, this day of lovers and light hearted thought. This must be “Forrest Gump Week” on television this week, every time I have went in there and turned it on … there he is …. Mama says life’s like a box o’ chocolates …. I never really did figure out […]

Up And Until Now Hump Day!  Just a couple more, and then the weekend.  Lying here in the bed this morning and I am thinking, “I don’t get out of my bed because it is uncomfortable, cold or anything like that. I get out of it because I know that some time during the day I am going to […]

0218 Say Ah ….  This morning I am reminded of that old saying, “Life begins at forty.”  Ever heard that one?  Well, it is not exactly true, life doesn’t begin at forty … maintenance begins at forty!  Had to do the checkup thing this week with my doctor and it appears that my numbers are not all that good.  […]

0221  Answer Up The Mayan Calendar only runs to the year 2012 and then abruptly stops.  Good news for anyone who owes a lot of money on Credit Cards, if you can just hold on a little longer, your misery will soon be over.  It has also been recently noted that the calendar itself has mathematical errors and […]

0223 Power of the Internet The Internet is a powerful tool, recent events in Eygpt certainly have shown us that.  A civil uprising was started and completed, mainly using the Internet and not a shot was fired.  You can get the world’s news instantly at the drop of a hat off the Internet, it is all there, plain as day, […]

0224 Friday In The Heartland I have been doing so much cotton-pickin’ painting that clean air is really starting to smell funny. On top of that, it is still wintertime in my neck of the woods, and the weather guessers are saying more snow is on the way. It is a good thing that I have my doctor’s permission to […]

0228 Drill This Last day of the month, and I cannot tell you where it went for the life of me, but tomorrow will be March 1st.  The windy month on the high plains. The “hot topic” this weekend seemed to be the Oscars (what a yawner that turned out to be, we did about ten minutes of […]
