Just some Sunday feelgood stuff

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

That was a good thing you did, lady. But you’re supposed to offer to buy the mistreated dog before you steal it. (H/T JB)

—–

Welllll, dunno if it’s the best political ad ever. But not bad.

—–

Rabbit stampede!

(H/T JB)

—–

There’s been so much terrible news out of that monster mudslide in Washington. And the last few days, so little news because they’re not saying much until the medical examiner identifies the latest bodies. Some bodies will just be under that mud forever. And nobody will ever know exactly how many.

All week I’ve bookmarked article after article, hoping to find something meaningful to say. But there’s nothing. Except for the few people rescued immediately after the slide there’s been nothing good. Except this one small thing.

Thanks, naturegirl for the one bit of cheer. I’m going to erase all those bookmarks now.

Also from naturegirl: Doggie magic tricks.

(Funny. But still mean.)

Might’s well wrap up with some more funny dogs.

Cheers.

Why?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

… does the media get so excited about the idiot state-of-the-union speech?

It’s all SOTU all the time for days before and for days afterward. When there’s never a damn thing of importance — or even of vague interest — said in the thing.

I’ve never agreed with Harry Reid on anything else before. Not that I know of, anyhow. But on this one thing I’m totally in his camp: he usually sleeps through the wretched speeches.

I think I’ll be doing sudoku by the fire tonight. How about you? Clean your guns? Reload ammo? Check your prep pantry? Watch paint dry?

Get Konnected with the Kronies

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

Hillarious. In a you’d better laugh because the alternative is … well, just watch.

And it appears you might actually — eventually — be able to buy them. Maybe.

A Sunday afternoon ramble

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

Boy, this working for a living stuff is hard. Stimulating, challenging, often fun, and a great way to break a long financial drought. But hard.

This afternoon for the first time in quite a while, I was able to wrap up work before meandering in the woods with the dogs. Brilliantly sunny day — and we’ve had more of those than any winter I can ever remember here. I’m sorry for you in the east suffering all those Bad Boy winter storms (Zeus or Giorgio or Henri-Claude or whatever they’re calling them, these days). I’m sorry for you Californians facing a dangerously dry summer. But here? Glorious!

Anyhow, so instead of charging out and back for the sake of doggie exercise and canine elimination needs, I actually rambled. Meandered. I might have even managed a few minutes of strolling. It was amazing. Really.

—–

And now I’m just rambling here. Just writing down whatever comes to mind. These little verbal expeditions tend to embarrass me, but they also draw a lot of thoughtful, touching comment. Which is I guess at least part of what this blog ought to be about. It’s one of the best feature’s of Joel’s blog, that he just exposes all those warts and lets you visit him inside the Secret Lair on good days and bad.

—–

Still, other things go on in the world.

Sometimes state-level politics looks … interesting.

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Like the idea of states banding together to defy federal gun laws. And punish fed agents.

Yeah, yeah. I know this doesn’t meet anybody’s anarcho-purity standards. Still … intriguing.
