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.

Lack Of Posts

I've been busy. We've moved, are spending time doing some touch up remodeling, and the paying job is taking mental resources I'm getting tired of expending. I guess it has something to do with age, since I have lost much of the stamina I once had at my fingertips.

We decided months ago to downsize, in preparation of retirement, and the plan of spending more time taking weekend excursions in the great state we live in. My wife, and I, find such excursions as the highlight of our marriage. We both are infatuated with the discovery of new places. Each has a different story to tell, and new people to meet.

So, I'll write when I'm able. Maybe a lot, and maybe little, but I'll write. I have much to write about, and if I don't, I have a compulsion that won't allow me peace until I do.

They Probably Don't Have a Clue

The Democrats are running amuck, their leaders are incompetent, and they think they're winning. That, and they don't have a clue of how they dance on the edge of the pit of Hell.

With all the out of control politics, activist judges, a concerted effort to destroy the Constitution, and ignoring the will of the majority of people, who is actually in charge? If you answered "the President", then you're right. If the President believes there is a danger to the public, which many believe there is, he has tremendous power to prevent the danger.

If the Democrats don't reel in their party, return to decency, condemn the media, and back off their Communist efforts, they may find their out control base becomes too unruly for polite society. At that time, the good people will have had enough, and the following repercussions severe. Not only will the citizens have had enough, they'll be backed by law enforcement and the military. I don't think anyone wants that, but I also don't think the Democratic Party has a clue of how they are becoming the party of disruptive mobs, and destructive individuals. People fear that those types of people, and people will not cower in fear for very long.

No Predictions

There are many predictions about this year on multiple sites. Some are fun, some are serious, and all are pure speculation. I'm not making any because not only will I forget what I predicted, but if they're right, there is no prize, and such things demand really, really good prizes.

The new year started good, with clearing weather, and the promise of more rain. The rain is starting this morning, and is forecast to continue until tomorrow. Theoretically, we don't need any more rain, but if we have a long dry spell ahead, we'll with for it.

I played cards with the in-laws on New Years Eve. It was fun, although the games were new to me. I'm used to poker in the multiple games usually played, so the game of "Hoodwink Brother in Law" (or something with a different name, but with the same result.) was new to me. It's like Bourre, except more expensive. It's a good thing my wife only had $15 in quarters, and I was shrewd enough to keep $3 out of play. If I hadn't, I would have lost $15.

So, Happy New Year. I've resolved to not get fat this year. That, and not spend money at theaters. The later resolve has been in effect since the year "Star Trek -The Wrath of Khan" was released, and easy to keep. Theaters never really appealed to me, and I've heard the distraction are now worse than ever. This surprises me, since tasers have been on the market for years.
