I sought feel good headlines to no avail. This happened much too often.
Meteorologists predicted a rainy, soggy, Kentucky Derby on Saturday.
If it wasn’t TV commercials for products and services not available in my area, it was junk on the internet.
Like “Chicken Man” on top 40 radio stations in the sixties. It’s everywhere.
A picture of a Volvo P1800 sports wagon, illustrated a tome about Cadillac motorcars.
Would anyone eat popcorn made in the exhaust pipe of a motorcycle? It captured my attention without appealing to my taste buds in the slightest.
How can the vacation of a lifetime be topped? Live another lifetime?
Not Not perfect, ugly produce, has the same nutritional value as picture-perfect produce–and it’s less-expensive. In the recent past, cheaper, ugly produce was all the rage.
According to a recent Associated Press article, several major food store chains have stopped selling blemished produce, because, “there has not been as much customer demand as hoped. They were worried, “the cheaper produce could cannibalize sales of regular produce.”
Less expensive, blemished produce would be ground up, cooked, canned–sold to food banks.
Did this mean, ugly food was OK, as long as it was kept out of sight? Out of mind? Or, as long as it didn’t cut into profit margins?
I’m sure there are those among us that will be dismayed, because Santa didn’t bring what they wanted.
Stuck waiting for punch lines, because there should have been more, but, there wasn’t.
Personal electronic devices allowed us the “have it our way.” That was until advertisers and spammers worked their way around firewalls and roadblocks.
Internet “click bait,” has the same content as supermarket tabloids. You Tube videos are chock-full of pop-up ads. Included political ads recently–to my dismay.
Has anyone tabulated the percentage of legitimate telephone calls received during an average day–compared to telemarketer and nuisance calls? What would it be: 5%? 10%? 1%?
Recently, a city hall clerk in a certain state, refused a marriage license, because the gentleman formerly resided in New Mexico. The clerk mistakenly thought New Mexico was a foreign country.
Just two days ago, the new local supermarket, was just a concrete slab. Today, Wednesday, there are walls standing. Interesting to watch construction progress, from the YMCA, across the street.
My furniture upholstery project seems to be an awesome success. Faded areas returned to original color. Have to admit, I didn’t feel confident as to results.
It’s pumpkin spice everything season–once again. Do you have special plans? Just like the Holiday Season, it starts earlier every year.
I like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake. Don’t care to have everything pumpkin spiced. Pumpkin spice pet foods? Do you think Fido or Fluffy really care?

Assaults to the senses
No one was surprised
Not much good news lately. There are other headlines, however. Here are a few.

- Amy Schumer wed secretly
- Most Americans were in debt
- Why most freezers didn’t have lights
- Losing an aircraft engine in flight was no big deal

- Still more cute toddler and pet pictures
The author reserves the right to complain about anything, and everything at any given moment. There were no implications of interest, admissions of guilt, in any of the above topics.
Passwords, crossroads, thresholds
Odorless, colorless, worthless
Sentimental old fools
Set in their ways
Couldn’t be swayed
Made no sense
Made no sense at all
Orbiting Tesla roadster
Another piece of space junk
Expensive designer genes
Semantics–wars with words
QWERTY–UIOP for sure
It’s not polite to speak ill of the departed. Natalie Wood’s death was controversial at that time.
The issue of whether or not it was accidental is not, new news.
Why it is being brought up now has me baffled.
On another subject, the three major television networks, failing to find any new programming ideas, are rebooting old series.
Rosanne, will come back on ABC. CBS brought back Hawaii 5-O, MacGyver; will bring back Cagney and Lacey, and Magnum PI.
Will they be successful? Hawaii 5-O and MacGyver seem to be doing well. I miss the scowling characterization portrayed by Jack Lord in the original series.
What other expended TV series could be reincarnated? …Leave It To Beaver, Bewitched, Barnaby Jones, Moonlighting?
I happened to like Moonlighting–the theme song was great, the tension between Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard made the show. I didn’t care for the way Seinfeld ended, either.
Clicked on click bait
Found suggestions already knew
Wasted time watching people
with whom I had nothing in common
that didn’t care a whit about
anything, but themselves
Life is a continual series
In wrong directions
Clocks without hands
Ships without rudders
Burgers without buns
Fun, beyond legal limits
Chicken Littles, peanut brittle
Log in, or get out?
Minor quibbles, put out to see
Oh, for the love of pancakes
Word of the year, word of the yawn?
Deflated Santas, compressors hissed no longer
Why? Because the congeniality well dried up
Have another cocktail weenie
