Monday's Missives

I have no idea where this picture came from. It was just in my gallery. I know I've never seen it before.

  • Im tempted to say, The South Korean, Japanese,  American and all other non crazy governments need to work together to ensure the next time the North Koreans test a missile over another nations sovereign territory- that missile is shot down. Then once the missile is shot down we don't brag about it- we don't even say a word Best Korea would know what happened. What do we do if we miss? We hint that we shot it down and leave it at that.
  • I know- big problems with that kind of thinking but it feels good to think that way and oddly it even feels right from a military standpoint and sounds correct ( although the intel Best Korea would gather from our inevitable miss of trying to take a missile down might be a bigger deal to them and our other potential enemies).
  • First Payday bar I ate in my life. Verdict: super good. Sweet and salty and chewy and crunchy- what's not to like?
  • That is one lame contest.
  • I have about 4 days worth of beard now, have not been sleeping well and I am incredibly stressed out- consequently I look easily 10 years older than my biological age.
    Not a terrible product but some of them always have a slightly stale edge to them. An old friends family used to make fried pork skins  themselves. They were legendary and supposedly delicious but I always missed having any.
  • Today two of my patients burst into tears as soon as they entered my office.
  • Well, to be completely truthful- one of them was already crying when she walked in.
  • Holy smokes, I just finished the voice to text bullet point before last by saying, over!
  • The bacon on my loaded baked potato from Flames Seafood this evening was great. Easily some of the best I've ever had in my life. Not top five but definitely top 10.
  • One of those stories that are somebody else's but it is just so cool- it makes you wish it were your own: a friend saw Willie Dixon at a blues festival in California. He took his program up to Willie and ask him to sign it. Somebody in the line hollered out, Make it out to Rocco! So Willie wrote something like, "To Rocco- Best Wishes!" or whatever. My friend's name is not Rocco and as a bonus-he had no idea who the guy was in the crowd that hollered that out. It was just some random guy. Willie died just a few years later.
  • Never forget the great gasoline crisis of 2017. I had to buy premium at slightly elevated prices. The horror. The horror. #covfefe

Monday's Missives

V8 juice another one of those products that I see it in the store and I just say, Man, that sounds sooooooo good right now. I buy a six-pack or 8 pack or however they come, then I'll drink those like they are about to be banned. Then a year or two later the process repeats. Interestingly enough- I've never drunk a Bloody Mary in my entire life.

  • So I bump into this kid who is the son of an old long ago long deceased friend. Later I saw him again and he mentions that his mom had asked about me which made me look her up online- as we all are wont to do. No, here is actually where it gets weird. I put her name in with my friends last name-even though they were never- as far as I know actually married. I do know she carried his name. None of the results that I found matched her. The weird thing is though, when I tapped image search all of the people pictured bore at least a passing and in one or two cases- a striking resemblance to her.
  • The internets is the devil.
    The weirdest/grossest thing is that the No Personal Food sign in big block letters is absolutely necessary. Gag.
  • Baker's ribs is off probation. I've been back two or three times now and it's back to being pretty good.
  • Weird thing about that place though- they give you barbecue sauce with your baked potato.
  • Recently somebody I know counseled me to try pot for my chronic pain issues. My mind was actually blown when I found out that they themselves partake.
  • I stay in enough trouble on my own without any help from you. Thank you very much.
  • There is no way that mosquitoes will not be an absolute plague in Houston in the spring of 2018.

The moon is so bright- it is keeping me awake.
# can you die from lack of sleep?

From The Detritus Of My Youth



Another favorite comic.

Thursday's Thoughts


  • So it is over with FG. She has already moved- I have no idea where she even lives.
  • Dang, that was a good one.
  • I have memories that will last me a lifetime.
  • It has been months since I've been camping. When the crowds were reasonable it was too unbelievably hot . When the temperature was nice- everything was too crowded.
  • Getting in the habit of going to bed nearly as soon as I get home. I'll never go straight to sleep though- I'll read for hours
  • I am reading a fantastic book titled 1491.
  • Super duper cute neighbor left her boyfriend recently. I doubt he saw it coming. I could literally see it coming from a mile away. 
  • No woman ever spent a minute in a tanning bed or a hour in the gym and/or drops 20 pounds for her present boyfriend.
  • Arthritis is beginning to affect the first knuckle of my thumb and the first knuckle of my index finger of my right hand. It has been in the first knuckle of my pinky finger on the same hand for a while but the other two knuckles are also starting to stay sore all the time now.
  • Did I know but somehow forget that the writer of one of my favorite songs, Come Monday is Jimmy Buffett?!
  • I nearly fell out of my chair when I read that he wrote that song earlier this evening.
  • Today is August 1st 2017.
