I'm sitting here with my skull throbbing. Why? My @#$(#($ implant came out. Why? No idea. None. It was last Friday. I was "celebrating". I had Woodies Brisket, and Coleslaw. Nothing Crunchy. Nothing hard. Well after dinner I was watching my car stories on the TV and felt that the damn thing was coming loose. … Continue reading Medical Science
Lot of stuff to catch up on. First off, it's hot. DAMN HOT! That's in the shade. Doesn't look like it's going to let up soon. But, we have the climate ninnies flapping their arms about global warming. It isn't. It's a normal-to-hot North Texas summer. We've had hotter and drier. My grass is still … Continue reading Odds and Ends
Got the Coof, I did. Started feeling wiped out last Sunday. I figured it was the beer flu and allergies, since I spent the whole day Saturday working outside in the gardens and hydrating myself with Yuengling. Herself was at the Daughters, helping her mind the kids after her procedure. So we did Mother's day … Continue reading Tough Week
I saw a cool post on Wilder: https://wilderwealthywise.com/human-chow-its-whats-for-dinner/ Couple things resonated with me - processed food expressed as "pre-digested" this is why you get that immediate carb rush with nearly all processed foods. Interestingly he tells of a study where they powdered the rat chow, and even given the same amounts of calories, the rats … Continue reading Dropping Ballast
https://youtu.be/Br2tA52YzAw Awesome! I never get tired of these old rocker dudes that can still handle business. I'm not a virtuoso guitarist or bassist. But I can play. And I play well. And playing live is a drug. There's nothing like making that much noise. I still miss my Gretsch or Telecaster singing, or my Carvin … Continue reading Geezer Power!
Stacy McCain had a piece up on music that really resonated with me about the Band "Chicago" music back in the day. I love music. All kinds. I play music - both guitar and bass, and have for decades. I'm good at it. Not great, but competent. By the way, a lot of friends that … Continue reading Why Johnny Can’t Play
I meant to write a short post, laughing at one of the senior moments I've been having lately, but I figured I'd plug something great while I build up what set me up for this moment. I found Duluth Trading when I was looking to score some dude stuff to add to the son and … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old…
Had the week off last week, and tried like hell to get stuff done that has been languishing around here for weeks. I still need to finish my network. I have the extra access point up, but couldn't do much else. Herself was home all week as well, and I can't drop the interwebs while … Continue reading Still Fun, but I got to work at it more.
It's been a slow morning. Got back from walking the dogs and sat down to send a group email about a friend's wife dying. They are an older couple, and she had some sort of operation that went pear-shaped. I'm at an age now where this sort of thing happens more frequently than I'd like. … Continue reading Don’t Grow Old
