Tuesday Tidbits





This picture was sent over to me from Patti in Northlandia and the explanation was this pooch rode the wind like this all the way from Aledo to the Andalusia road.  That is one lucky dog.

I already made this rare post on Facebook of Ayla/Alfred giving me a 4 month job evaluation.  I have made sure everyone has seen it, like the dutiful and proud Papa I am.

In a couple weeks or so I'll be winging it back to Northlandia and my cabin in the woods.  I have made a surprising and costly decision to include a basic TV cable service this time.  With all the political stuff going on I don't want to miss the next episodes of "All My Republicans".  There is no contract to bother with so I can cut it whenever I want.  Frankly, the antenna free stuff I get just doesn't take care of this old guys viewing needs.

Went to get my annual physical with Dr. Slapdash last week.  All my numbers are good and he said after seeing some remaining toenail polish from Norah that after I get done going drag I need to take all the polish off.

A horse walks into a bar.  The bartender says, "You're here a lot, are you an alcoholic?"

The horse ponders for a minute and responds, "I don't think so."
And poof he disappears.

This is where the philosophy students start to snicker, as they are familiar with Descartes' axiom, "I think therefore I am."

But telling you that first would be putting Descartes before the horse.

Old Philosophy joke.

Binge watch Happy Valley and The Fall.  Yeah, it's English, but they have kind of a long history of fairly decent writing.

Newer Bentley parked at the grocery store this week.  Nice lines and very expensive.  You'd think if you could afford a Bentley then you could afford to hire someone to do the grocery getting.

Just saw Room.  I'm kind of speechless.  I will need more time to process but it is actually 2 movies in one:  first half about escaping a 7 year abduction, and the second about adjusting to it all.  Brie Larson won the Oscar for her performance and I must say, I was unable to keep still during the first half.  Of course, Norah is the same age as Jack so I suppose that made it worse.  A deep, unsettling film, perfectly made and so very thought provoking.

Speaking of Princess Norah, she saw a grass skirt she had to have at Dollar General.  Mom helped make it a perfect little treat.
