Beard No Beard….and other updates

Beard No Beard is back…and biking. I saw him yesterday, on his bike. Not walking his bike…ON it..Riding it. You go beard, you go. I’ve seen Green Machine a few times too. He hasn’t looked as strung out as he had in the past. In fact, I’d say he looks lke he’s on a mission....

Left, Right, Left, Right Left…

Last night I made a late night run to the .99-cent store to get snakcs for a movie I was watching with my wife. The .99-cent store, while not my favorite place to go on any circumstance is a great place to gather up snack items on the cheap. Any venture into the heart of...

Note to Napster….Pull your head out.

So now that I have a portable 80-gig drive, I can fill it full of music for my napster account. Today I was getting some old Blind Mr. Jones songs, just to rekindle that time period…and as usual, I always click the section on each artist that lists “If you like this band Napster Recommends”...

Trip the Dental fantastic

I went to the dentist yesterday. I hate the dentist. Paco and I can agree on this. It’s never even remotely a good time. I despiese getting my teeth cleaned. I went 6 years between cleanings, that’s how badly I hate it.(no cavities) I only go now because my dentist offers me Nitrous Oxide…for everything....

Potem Falls- An Adventure In Moss

“It’s prounounced POH-TAM falls” My father told me after I had returned from an afternoon hike with my oldest son. “That man died up there awhile back. Fell off. His brother died too, going up to show someone where.” That was a nice little story to make me feel extra safe about the place I...

New Topic

I think it’s time for a new open forum type topic. Due to the fact we’ve not really had a new topic for awhile…I say having some open-ongoing topics might free things up, provide for more content. Inspired by Eduardo’s trip to Clear Lake, I say we have a topic devoted to “Getaways”. Whenever an...

I am Electro…Would you like Showtime with that?

I just moved. Again. I will post my farewell to my last place when I’m officially out of it 100%. Part of the move required me to switch my dish network account. I called the 1-800 # and took care of that, only about 15 seconds into my call, I became confused. was I even...

Mouse Vs Man Round 2

The mouse has tripped the trap once more, escaping. Last night he didn’t even try…all the traps were still loaded and ready this morning when Ieft. I’m not sure how he’s done it…but he’s good. Real good. I was hoping for a foot or and ear at least…maybe a tail…but he appears to have gotten...

Man Vs. Mouse Round 1

When I went to the local .99 cent store for mouse traps I found these PETA approved devices. I’m debating buying these. I guess the mouse wanders over them…then gets stuck…like Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby…to me…this seems like the mouse would still be living, and pissed should he get caught in the trap....

Man vs. Mouse

I have a mouse problem…and this time it’s personal. I discovered the little critter has taken an earlier killing of a relative to heart, and gone for my cooking mitt. He gnawed the crap out of it. IHe’s going down. Under normal circumstances, he’d still meet his maker, but now that he went for my...

Hair

I was in my principal’s office this morning, just chatting when I looked down and noticed a large tuft of hair on my sleeve. We’re talking about 30 individual hairs. It looked like women’s hair, but I could be wrong. I do know it was weird. I stopped at the gas station this morning, but...

Hola Amigos

Hey it’s been awhile since I posted anything, so here it goes. This is a collection of random things I’ve observed or done in the past few weeks. They relate to many topics, so i’ll take them one by one. A) I’ve seen beard no beard two times in the past couple weeks. granted, none...
