Tuesday Tidbits


The Cabin in the Woods is providing shelter and solace to the wild Spring weather I have experienced.  80 degrees one day, then down to 55 the next.  Sunny blue skies then tornado sirens blaring to warn of impending danger.  With all due respect to those who have lost their lives in recent storms I have found it exhilarating in comparison to the stultifyingly monotonous Kitschland weather.

The Emerald City DMV has solved the age-old problem of Christmas tree storage and the hassle of putting it up and down every year.  Just keep it up and decorate with the colors of the upcoming holiday.  Problem solved.  So smart.  So clever.  So lazy.

FaceTime on our iPads is so cool for traveling Papa's.  I'm not sure how to capture a text message but the great surprise so far was I received my first from Norah.  She's getting so big.

Coolest bar in North Henderson.  This picture captures it all:  pool table, motorcycles, beer, truck and Tim.  Don't see the beer?  Don't worry, it's there somewhere.

Stopped at LaGondola's in G-Burg last Saturday.  Noticed this.  Gee, just like Kitschland.

Congratulations to new High School graduates Richard Ferguson and Logan (Hippie) McCutcheon.  They don't know it yet but these are good carefree years.

The Peter Principle has officially been re-named: the Donald Principle.

This is a secret, previously unreleased tape of an example of keen and all-knowing supervision at Papa's Daycare.  First rule of child rearing:  nip it in the bud!  By the way, that's Alfred's hiding spot.  Pretty much in full view of where I sit.

Kinda funny how the Conservatives tell the Progressives they can't get over the election loss, but when they start talking about it they always mention Hillary.  Hey, wha? (that's not a typo, I'm trying to be cool.)

++++++++++ 

For those interested:  my exercise routine has been destroyed.  It has been cold, rainy and too much great Midwestern treats an beer.  So, I'm marking this all down as a long break and will resume when I return to Kitschland.   Not even stepping on the scales.

Just sent - Alfred hamming it up for the camera.

I'm not certain certain, but my guess is your free range chicken egg tastes the same as your fenced in one.  Ah, marketing. 


++++++++++

Speaking of chickens;  do they have to be impregnated each time to produce an egg, or is one insemination good for a dozen? 

++++++++++ 

And speaking of animals:  is the ground squirrel the same as a chipmunk?  And if not, has anyone ever seen one?  Even at the zoo?

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…
