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.

I leaned to my side and farted. Solomon leaned to his side and farted. Couldn't be more proud!
Only this morning during the scripture reading in church did I recall that your son's name is Solomon. Up til then I had been searching Song of Solomon and elsewhere for an interpretation.

My wife and her kids physically attacked me last night. They tried to gain control of the TV remote to turn on the basketball game while I was watching a documentary on Rush.

I very easily overpowered the 3 attackers and they all submitted. The wife was pinned to the wall while the 2 kiddos were immobilized beneath me.

A family that fights together stays together and learns not to mess with the remote.
That's a good documentary.

It comes from the Hebrew word "Shalom" which can mean good health, peace, wholeness, and prosperity.

Tonight I'm thinking about my mom's banana pudding, homemade, with lots of bananas and wafers, after it's been allowed to sit in the fridge for about a day, and the wafers soak up the sweetness and flavor. It's the little things sometimes, that we miss the most.

I have these kinds of thoughts and reminders of my parents and grandparents all the time. It's a great feeling.

I had six cubic yards of gorilla hair delivered to my driveway.

Wouldn't it have been better to get the gorilla and shear him your self? That way the hair is fresher!

He made me look. It's shredded redwood mulch. We don't have redwoods here abouts, but it looks quite similar to cypress mulch.

I do not envy moving six yards of it.

Speaking of hair, last night I noticed that I have a lot of hair growing on my nose.
Not 6 cubic yards, but a lot.
On, not in. Well yeah that too but I already knew that.
A lot of hair---not fuzz---and it's long. Soon I'll be able to part it down the middle like a dog 8O

Just my luck I can't use it for a comb-over without effecting my vision, but that's another issue :facepalm:

Whoever is in charge of road repair in New Mexico has recognized that it's cheaper to put up signs that read "Damaged Guardrail Ahead" than it is to actually fix the damaged guardrails.

I'm pretty sure I broke my toe last night when I was working on a shelf late-- an emergency short term fix was needed. This board had broken off and I had put it back up and while I was working on the doors for the shelving (cabinets?) the board fell and hit me with a corner or edge of the board and right on my pinky toe. It hurt. This morning there was coloring and continued swelling.

I have some errands around the house to do today and mowing... hoooboy.
