Tuesday Tidbits

1.  Drew was checking around Craiglist for a shotgun a few weeks ago.  The guy he was corresponding with sent him a picture of the gun.    

And his toes.

I hope you are not looking at this over breakfast.  And I also fervently hope he doesn't live in Georgia.


Now, imagine you are at the pump, minding your own business, lost in thoughts about errands, work or home and a camper pulls up beside you.  Only this camper has a snake wrapped around its door handle and mirror.  

Turns out this is a fake snake and just one part of the charm of this old camper.  I don't care if it is fake, if I faint when it rolls up, then its not a fake faint.  Someone has to pay.  

3.  I hope the weather in Missouri is good this week.  (No, I won't be there, but Neighbor Tim will be fishing there.  Last couple of years have been iffy, weather-wise.)

4.  Nap Time For Little Squab


5.  Pointless comment of the year: I hate the word "absolutely".  Apparently Americans have decided a 4 syllable word is better than a 1 syllable, "yes".   I also hate when people start their sentence with "Look…" or most recently "So..," seems to be the latest.  I also hate when people don't finish their sentences.  "Do you want fries with that, er…?"  I blame my grammar fanaticism on my mother who was always correcting us.  One of her favorites was in response to one of us asking, where is the Wombie at?  She would respond "behind the "At".  Apparently throwing an "at" at the end of a sentence would get her English proclivities enraged.  Its now all I can think about when I hear someone else throw in that "at".  At least they don't have Marj to contend with; she broke us kids like a cowboy breaks ponies.

I'm Flying!

Flying has not lost its charms on me.  I am still, after all, a small town kid and the thrill of it all is still just as real and palpable as the first time I climbed on board a plane.  That was back in my graduate days.  I took an Ozark flight from Denver to Waterloo and then to Peoria.  One could say that after flying with them each day since has been a gift.  Today I fly Allegiant and while they are at the bottom of safety maintenance and mechanical failure, no flight has ever crashed.  Knock on wood!  Where's some wood!  I can't find wood!  OK, I found a window sill.

These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
