I have a persimmon tree in my back yard. It was here when I bought the place. It grows like a weed and you need to cut it back every year. I don't always. This year I cut it back severely. Last fall I had persimmons 30 feet up that I couldn't get to. So … Continue reading Get the Squirrel!
The big news this last week was our overlords succumbing to Occam's Razor and admitting that the Chinese Coof came from China. Really. As usual, others have covered it better. Let's cover what we knew way back in early 2020: It came from Wuhan.There happens to be not one, but two virology labs there, that … Continue reading Good Lord…We really are that Stupid
Last post I alluded to what happens when the dudes realize there's someone they don't want on the property. So here's what happened. I came down the alley, and there was this slob that looked like Eminem hanging around on his mobile at my neighbors garage. There was another dude, his friend apparently, sitting on … Continue reading Run Forrest!
So do I. It's why I installed a camera system. In addition to Ring, I have an actual video camera system. Two, as a matter of fact. One Wyze, that has 3 cameras where I can see what the dogs are up to if I'm not here. I use it primarily to check if the … Continue reading Jethro Hates Solicitors
I had a bit of an incident with the sunroom. It's under construction, so there's a door missing, and the sides leading to the roof aren't finished. No biggie really, unless it rains like hell here. Which it did. And I realized that I'm going to have to deal with drainage, and the dumb thing … Continue reading Get a Shop Vac
My old hometown had a spot of bother over the weekend. Seems BLM was marching on behalf of some dude that died in Collin County Jail back in March. Timing is sure off, considering how long it's been and that the real protest - the honest one, happened back then at the municipal center where … Continue reading What? In Plano?
Found this on a dog bed yesterday. Wut? That isn't my shootin' can. That's what happens when a large shepherd mix fishes an empty can out of the recycling and goes to town. I'm in a quandary about who it was. The big dude, Jethro, is about the only one that can deftly reach into … Continue reading Shootin’ Can?
The high school girls that are running the Biden administration have decided to reject AMVETS permit, for the first time in 30 years, to use the Pentagon parking lot to muster for their memorial parade this year. If you haven't seen this event, it's something to behold. Thousands of bikers, in parade, across memorial bridge … Continue reading Rolling Thunder
Whenever I feel myself getting too big for my boots I strive to remind myself that I have undoubtedly wasted all of my own gifts that God gave me, in comparison than if someone else had been blessed with what I am endowed. We move closer to God when we move away from the self. … Continue reading Too Big for My Boots
Sometime ago, the grandkids were over. I was chatting with the son-in-law as one of the boys blasted around the corner, faceplanted, got up, shook it off, and continued wherever he was going. I looked at the scene and said, "You know, that's something I can't do anymore either". Getting old really sucks. Little dude. … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old
