Weird Ramblings from a Warped Mind


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 […]


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 […]

But I Have an Appointment

It’s 10:00am, the first Saturday of the month. So I head to where I always go at 10:00am on the first Saturday of every month. To get my hair cut. Every month. The first Saturday. At 10:00am. And it’s because I have an appointment. Webster’s defines an appointment as: Main Entry: ap•point•ment Pronunciation: ə-ˈpȯint-mənt Function: […]

Ever the Sportsman

I like to play golf. Or play AT golf, actually. I’m not any good, but I enjoy it. It’s very relaxing to me to hit the little white ball, scream at it as it leaves the tee, and then to hunt for my club after I throw it. Yep… I like golf. I got to […]
