Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

"We're going on a liquid diet", she said. "Darling", I said, "you know I love you with all my heart. You're the love of my life. But you know I ain't going on no liquid diet.".

"Let's compromise", I suggested. "Tomorrow there'll be plenty of liquid in the red beans, to go with the rice". "And there'll be no cornbread".

There was no reply. She must still be thinking about it.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Because there are 5 statues wheeled around by their puppetmasters and their voices are piped in. Throw in fifty bucks worth of props and charge sixty bucks a cheap seat. Profit.

I'll bet that's a load off your.....mind.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Late this evening, coyotes were howling up a storm and I tried to capture the sound with my phone via video. Maneuvering to a better spot, I tripped over a bucket, (but held the phone still).

I mentioned starting a butterfly collection, since we've planted all of these so-called butterfly-attracting plants. My wife said oh absolutely not!

Taking a leak or dump outside attracts them as well.
Suspect your wife would not go for that either.

If my wife took a leak or dump in the yard she and I would have to have a serious talk.

The coyotes song is still very cool, thanks for capturing :)

Greg-The-One-Armed-Handyman has been scraping old linoleum off one of my bathroom floors for five hours now. The bolts that fasten the toilet down were so rusty he had to cut them off. He's finding a little more rotted underlayment than he expected too. I think this is turning in to more of a project than he figured. I forgot to tell him to account for the Fred Factor™, which states that all home repair and plumbing jobs will take three times longer than expected, and will require three additional trips to the store to pick up parts and supplies.

I s'pect I'll owe more than his original estimate. I don't paying a fair price for hidden pitfalls. Beats doing it myself.

I just watched Greg-The-One-Armed-Handyman cut a roll of vinyl with a utility knife. Now I understand why half of one arm is missing.
