In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

George Bernard Shaw Said It Best

George Bernard Shaw once said: "Youth is wasted on the young." I don't agree with all he believed, but he hit the nail on the head with that quote.


  1. When I see kids constantly hopping and running, serving no purpose, I believe Shaw knew exactly what he was talking about. If I could just walk without wincing, there's so many things I would be happily making, repairing, or cleaning.

    1. The aches and pains are what hamper enjoying the golden years. That's what only those that lived many decades understand, and those that ignore their blessings never realize, until they're older.

  2. A woman at work used to say it every day at least three times a day, and while it is, as you say, a very valid and true axiom, it can also get annoying. So I started coming back with "Mice are wasted on cats." "Rain is wasted on puddles." "Crack is wasted on middle management." She has now moved on to movie quotes, which I find to be an improvement.

  3. Movie quotes are good; as long as they don't include fava beans and a nice Chianti.

  4. I dunno... some of the funnier memories from my youth have to do with being young and dumb.
