I was doing something in the kitchen, and the screen for my apple watch clattered across the floor. Busted. Again. This will be the third screen this watch has had. I think I'm done. A done tom turkey. I plugged it back in, and it didn't work. Although, it seems to be working now. I … Continue reading Useless
Kenny over at Knuckledraggin lost another dog. Lucy was old and not well. Doesn't matter. Just because you know something like this is coming, it doesn't make the pain any less severe. Not long ago he lost Charlie. Both times his loss hit me in the guts. It got real dusty in here reading about … Continue reading A tragic loss, and Jasper update
It's been a hell of a week for the Biden administration. Or let me back up, the Grima Wormtongue that's actually running things. As usual others have said it better than me. Nearly anyone on my blog roll to the right has better analysis of things. I tend to like Adaptive Curmudgeon, Bayou Renaissance Man, … Continue reading Words Fail…
https://youtu.be/YT_63UntRJE?t=773 OK, Screw it if I've posted this before. The second movement of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A will rip your soul out and take it for a ride. Especially if the soloist is a woman that is very, very close looking to your daughter, who you've heard play this piece a few hundred times.

He had a good two hours sleep, until he had enough and went into his crate. So I had to re-install his lampshade. He slept … Continue reading Jasper Update
This week I was blessed with Jury Duty. Six Bucks! Such a deal! I lived for nearly 40 years in Fairfax County Virginia and had jury duty exactly once. Down here, I think I get called up every eighteen months or so. I've been at least ten times since I've lived here. I've been on … Continue reading Jury Duty
This is the boy's new thing: https://vimeo.com/593051565 He's getting mouthy. This is Jasper's new thing. As it happens, I figured out, by simple observation, that he wants to either come into my office, or have Aria play with him. I think it's more that he wants to hang at my feet. But girlfriend will bite … Continue reading Just another day….
I've been hooked on Vice Grip Garage for some time. When he's cleaning these old cars, Derek and his helpers use Sprayway Products, which he endorses on the site. So, I did the right thing and bought one of everything. Three of the cans I got Good thing too, since my car was filthy, and … Continue reading De-Stinking the Car
Every night, when it's time for the pups to go to bed, we simply say their name and "Night Night". The two older dogs simply walk into their cages. Jasper usually does as well. But every now and then, He pauses to make sure. Maybe, I'll change my mind... https://vimeo.com/591330472 Time for Bed
