Our Dyson vacuum cleaner just pissed me off for the last time. I've had that thing apart a few times and done a few hundred dollars worth of repairs and parts replacement over the years, and it would've been a lot more had I not done the repairs myself. I've even had to modify the "universal replacement" parts for wiring and switch mounting. I can't believe the number of pieces of the case that have cracked and/or failed. I just ordered a Bissell. We'll see how long this one lasts.
Well, glad my wife didn't fully convince me last year, then.
Yeah, don't. My wife was an early adopter. Near as I can tell, the reason they don't lose suction is because they don't have any suction to begin with.

In related news, while the Dyson does not actually suck as advertised, it does in fact draw a significant vacuum in other ways.
If you have a vacuum cleaner that really sucks would that be a good thing or bad thing?
There's a 'Yer Mom' joke laying there. In plain sight. And, in a rare moment of clarity and propriety, I've decided to leave it there.
Don't start going soft on me, I'm still meaner than a box of hammers from time to time.
You, you're one of my heroes.

In PA, we say dumber than a bag of hammers. You aren't that, either.

Perhaps the FB bickering over gun control and mental health funding in the aftermath of another school shooting is a sign I should give it up for Lent. Give up facebook that is, not shooting school children.

Get a horse---no---get a Kirby!
After burning up new Hoovers, Eurekas and a Dirt Devil I got a $35 Kirby at a yard sale twenty years ago. It still runs like a champ. Parts are well supported and it's built like tank. Ours is a circa 1970s Heritage model. There is an ashload of accessories for Kirby, even a paint gun.
A pal's dad who was a crop duster doped the ailerons of his Thrush Commander with the Kirby spray attachment.
Another pal worked his way through grad school picking up old Kirbys from yard sales, reconditioning and reselling them.

The sun came out boldly this morning. I came down with sudden chronic cabin fever. Cleared my calendar and PTO'd from lunch on. Had a blast out in the sunshine with the pups, who also were suffering from cabin fever. But to be fair, that's a daily situation for them. A mini-vacation of goodness.

Re: Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

I could have gone goose hunting this morning, but I opted out and instead am on my back porch smoking, drinking coffee, watching birds, and slapping mosquitoes. And forming plans in my head for screening in this porch.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Fred's Dark &Twisted Thought Of the Day™

Perhaps the FB bickering over gun control and mental health funding in the aftermath of another school shooting is a sign I should give it up for Lent. Give up facebook that is, not shooting school children.
Did the next best thing. Unfollowed das.
I’m afraid I did that long ago. Just wasn’t worth it. I’d still like to hang out with him sometime when he’s in IL, but I didn’t need his FB persona.
He's a good egg. I've shared beer, bbq and pipes with him and Mrs Das. He's just way more interested in discussing politics than I am and one of his friends really ticked me off. The guy apologized for it, but still, as my daughters would say 'too much drama'. And just a few days after I posted this strip. I need to heed the advice of Jesus. I like Chuck for Chuck, not his politics and certainly not the politics of his friends.
