Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

CPS has the finest, most committed enablers anywhere on the entire internet machine.

And I'm grateful.
Hush, you! No one cares.

Now, more non-caring awaits.

I was on Brand X social media site where I had purchased an item from one of the advertisers there.

I returned to add my input. For some reason Brand X social media site was having difficulties processing the entry and they politely asked me to try again. later

As I put in the battery with pup at my feet it flashed on for 2 seconds tops. He bolted to the back yard and sat on the patio and would not come back in.

Took about an hour to prove it was safe.

Yeah he's a rescue pup. Thanks loads.

I'll use this on that little yipping [censored] next door. 20 feet from my fence line and sitting quietly?

It stays away from the fence or it gets the Voice of Satan again.

Perfect.

I was just wondering besides RevThom and myself, who among us has pierced ears or other body parts?

I'm on the computer right now reading CPS, thinking I should go to the patio and smoke my pipe.

Was all set to go to church, making great time. Could have even showed up early. But I forgot to pick up some WD-40 this weekend and have an expired tag with rusted bolts so I am on CPS. Any suggestions that doesn't require WD-40?

I've pierced my ears a few times with thorns while woodcock or quail hunting. They've always healed up ok though.

We missed this mornings church service. My wife lost a front tooth, broken off somehow, and she refused to go. I told her to not smile, just grin, but that didn't get far. So, we've listened to two sermons on line so far. Nice, but just not the same as being there.

Was listening to a sermon. Then he mentioned tithing and winning big with God which is called "gambling".

I hit my left index fingernail with a high powered laser once-- it felt like someone had pierced the nail into that soft, tender skin below the fingernail with a needle.

Around '58-'60 my dad was charged with looking after an elderly widow, whose name I don't remember, who lived down the street. Her garden was important, but when she could no longer care for it she gave my dad a young dwarf lemon tree. By '61 she'd passed away and in '62 dad built a new house for us in the suburbs and transplanted the tree there. The doctor who lived across the street identified the lemon as a Meyer and it must have liked the location between our house and the neighbors, apparently sheltered from frost with with plenty of landscape water to steal. The "climate change" over the past few years has goosed the Meyer into heavy production---I mean heavy.
Lately I've become a very popular fellow in the 'hood because many want my Meyers lemons.
Funny how things work out.
Yeah, it's the middle of January and I'm harvesting lemons---California is like that :lol:

Our two Meyers lemon trees are both covered with blooms. One has leaves also, however the other doesn't. Haven't yet figured out why.

I wore an ear ring in the 80's when it was still a little on the edge. When I started seeing guys 10-15 years older than me wearing them I realized the cool had worn off.
