Monday's Missives/Old Draft Clean Up (on aisle 7)

  • Word on the street is McDonald's is in trouble and is actually closing hundreds of stores. They have already changed how their services are provided and are trying new [and some surprisingly good] menu items. I look for craziness though as they seem a little desparate- tofu on a stick, sushi tacos and veggie burgers etc.
  • To me there are few things better than sitting on a porch and watching a storm roll in.
  • Myth-Land- what I'm reading. It was written by F. Edward Hulme
  • The S in Harry S Truman's name didn't stand for anything- it was just an S. Isn't that weird?
  • A lot of crazy news bits seem to involve  a Wal Mart or Florida or a Wal Mart in Florida.
  • Vitamin B6 is used to treat or prevent numbness to the feet. Oddly, it can also cause numbness to the feet.
  • One of my former patients would hear nothing of her having dangerously high blood pressure as she said, There is nothing wrong with me. God will take care of me. If her BP stayed within the range it was when I took her pressure she was absolutely on target for a stroke or kidney failure and as for, God will take care of me- he was trying to take care you, you big dummy- he sent you me.
  • This morning (05/22/2015) I awoke at about 0330 and went to IHOP for coffee and pancakes. When I got back home I read for a short time then dozed off for an hour and awoke feeling great and then went to work. Maybe I'm on to something...
  • All the news is aflutter about a Bandidos informant to DPS supposedly supplying information that brothers in the military are supplying their members with grenades and C4 to retaliate against Texas law enforcement. Bullcaca. You should know it is bullcaca because everybody involved has every reason to lie and/or believe what they want to believe.
  • Learning To Walk Again

I initially got excited when I thought Dave's car in the video was like mine in college (Datsun 510 hatchback), but then I realized his was a Chevette.

I had a Vette (Chev) once- a really good car when newer but when they get tired- man; more headaches than a wife when she knows the marriage is about done.

If you didn't know it already that video was a homage to the great Michael Douglas movie Falling Down.

D'oh! I didn't make the connection while I was watching it (although I did notice the eyeglasses)...yeah, that totally fits.

This afternoon I watched a storm blowing in. I actually got in the truck and abandoned ship. Luckily, it skirted just North of me and all I got was rain. Brother let me tell you that was an ugly looking storm and the first time I ever said screw it and left the casa.

Here's a video shot just a few miles North of my place.

I'm really digging the idea of the early morning IHOP visit. I might wake my wife up sometime to try it out!
