Thursday's Thoughts


  • When I got out of my truck at the office a cloud of grackles flew overhead for at least 5 minutes and I'm not sure I could see the end of them when I got tired of watching and went inside. The flock was elongated and at it's widest point must have been a couple hundred feet wide.
  • One of my nursing buddies had her office door closed for a while yesterday and when she opened it and came out her eyes were red and face swollen from crying. She didn't want to talk about it. It broke my heart.
  • For a while I have been taking an aspirin a day to hopefully keep the ole ticker ticking. Consequently, I bleed like a stuck pig from the slightest insult to my skin.
  • My beard is getting crazy white and I am oddly OK with that and even embracing it a bit. The first thing I thought when I looked at myself in the mirror this morning was, I wish it would get it over with and go into full on white-out mode.
  • Until I had the beard I would go days without looking at myself in the mirror and my guess is that is very unusual.
  • The word, "riblets" is nasty and disgusting.
  • In 2002 the bullet that killed John Wesley Hardin sold for 80,000 dollars- not the gun- the bullet.
  • To the Frontier Tank Lines driver who tailgated me for miles this morning (11/18/2015) on I30 before jerking over into the number 1 lane to cut off another driver about to pass you on the left: Dude. Are. You. %$#! Crazy!? Carrying 7500 gallons (I think that is right) of something marked flammable and you were driving like a maniac. I mean for real- I was going 5 mph over the speed limit and you left me behind like I was standing still. Oh, and your red bandana do rag thing looked retarded.
  • Ha!

You should have called the 800 number on the trailer. They take those calls seriously.

Not sure why it listed that comment as anon.

Hey Mike- Yeah, I'll do better next time. If nothing else, the assured positive drug test which would have resulted from the call would have gotten him fired.
