LOL!

I did fall out of the truck in the middle of the route. We were giving out books and I was digging in a box on the open tailgate when the truck lurched forward and over I went. The crowd was kind and didn't even laugh. Somewhere, though, I know hugo was prompted to smile.

It was not random, Paul.

I just watched a sappy Christmas movie and liked it.

Is there any other kind of Christmas movie?

I just opened a can of black olives with a butter knife.

Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The riding mower is back to work. It took longer to removed and reinstall the mower deck to unravel the comealong cable than to actually untangle the cable.

Edit to add: I did note that I need new blades. There is no cutting edge on either one. I wonder how long it’s just been beating the yard into submission.

I had an adrenaline rush today. I went out to get my grill ready. I opened it up to find a snake resting inside. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a cobra or a black mamba.

Today has been bittersweet. From the time I was 10 until I was 17, dad was in and out of my life. It might even be months between visits. Then he died when I was 21. It hurts that he chose another person over his family.

That ain't a useless fact, man. It bears meditation, I feel, and is something we don't hear often enough. We owe a duty to our families and we all do irreparable damage to those we love the most by trying to do our duty.

Hug Sol for me. We have a chance to not repeat these mistakes. But dont be too surprised that we're making new ones every day.

Yesterday I bought a bottle of Redemption High Rye. It was on sale for 27.99. Later I got to thinking about the total of all my groceries and it didn't seem to match what I had purchased. I checked my ticket and found that the Rye rang up as 15.00. I called to let the store know. I asked if I should return to pay the difference. They declined the offer.

Of course I didn't laugh. The wages of cultural appropriation are self-abasement and there's nothing funny about that.

I'd just hit the snooze button at 6:45 this morning when some dudes fired up the concrete saw to remove my neighbors front steps. The good news is they only ran it for about 15 minutes. The bad news is they got out their jackhammer after they finished with the saw.

Because of my sinus surgery last Thursday I have to irrigate my sinuses 3 times a day. Not pretty, not pretty at all.

Been there. Done that.
Not so bad after you get used to it, but then it's pretty crummy that after awhile you do get used to it.

I found one of our new catchers hidden in some tall grass a couple of weeks ago. There was a baby garter snake trapped inside. He was cranky.
