Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind


Mr. Barnum was Right

I get mad at myself sometimes. Well… actually… a lot. I can’t believe that I can continually come up with stuff to write about, but miss the BIG picture. Other people are out there stealing ideas I haven’t thought of. Yet. If they would just wait and give me time, I would come up with […]

It Ain’t Gonna Happen

If you are one of the masses that read the ramblings of my warped mind on any type of a regular basis, you might be aware that I read the news a good bit. I check all the major network websites throughout the day, plus some online newspapers for areas we have lived in the […]

Escalation

Many things start out very simple and end up blown COMPLETELY out of proportion. Escalation gets many of us into trouble. And not just us… countries escalate minor things into full blown contingencies. Case in point: In March 1963, just three months into office, John F. Kennedy became incensed when the White House kitchen ran […]

Why Diet?

I encountered a problem recently. And it’s been a tad bit embarrassing. NO… it’s not an itch. My clothes have been shrinking. Many are too small. I mentioned it on FaceBook recently and got a HUGE outpouring of sympathy from my “friends.” NOT!! It started out in my drawers. Not THOSE drawers… they have an […]

Are You Kidding Me??

It doesn’t take much to get me going. Especially if the subject is the Rebumlicans or the Demicants. Like yesterday when the Head Honcho and Deputy Dawg talked about how the “stimulus package” had created 2,000,000 jobs. Oh yeah… they left out the part about each of those jobs costing $393,500.00. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? […]

I’ve Been Missing Out

I wonder how long THIS has been going on? I could have been SO much more comfortable. Had I only known. I guess I need to pay closer attention. And I will in the future. Times are tuff. But I’m sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. Record unemployment. Foreclosures. Homeless folks. […]

Bunny Ranchin’

WOW!! I was surprised to learn I am a farmer. I have to do a little research to see if there are some type of tax advantages available to me now. And it’s funny… because I found out completely by accident. I’m kind of worried at the moment. I have to learn what kind of […]

The Games are Upon Us

Has it already been four years? It seems like just… well… maybe like three years. But they are back again. The Olympics. From Vancouver. I think that’s up in Canada. Eh? The Olympics remind me of family. The visit is great for the first couple of days. Then it starts to go down hill. It’s […]

Contraptions

We have several contraptions around the house. Most, at some point in their lives, were used for their intended purpose. I’m almost sure of that. I can’t say that for the majority of them now. I think I collect some of them to truly use them as they were intended… and then I find a […]

Stop and Give Thanks

How often do you stop and realize how lucky you are? I don’t mean after a tragedy on TV or something major like that. I mean just in general. Every day… run of the mill… things. Do you realize it on a regular basis? I do every day. Not a day of the week goes […]
