Not Earthshattering/But, Could Have Been (If Circumstances Were Right)

From the headlines: Decorating ideas that could make one want to return to college.

A recurring dream.  I’m back at college. Can’t remember my schedule. Working towards a degree–requirements never satisfied.  Decorations wouldn’t do it for me.

Not since the Scopes Monkey Trials, have primates figured in important litigation.  Naruto, a crested macaque, celebritized after taking selfies, with a stolen camera.  A settlement reached over who had rights to the images.  Hope Naruto got a lifetime supply of bananas.

A picture of Billy the Kid, bought for two dollars, was found to be worth a cool five million.  There’s hope for yard sale junkies, collectors everywhere.

We should watch what we do and say, because aliens from other planets could be watching.  I thought only Santa Claus did that.  Could Santa Claus really be an alien?  You didn’t hear it from me.

This morning was like old times for the Retired Old Farts Dog Walker’s Club.  There were almost enough members present for a quorum.  That was, providing the members ever agreed on anything–which was rare.

Rushes To Judgement

Can’t run away from troubles

But, you’d like to try

My train of thought derailed

Maybe it was on the wrong track?

Extremists took advantage

Of bad situations

Somebody’s bound to do it

They always did

No concept of time

They’ve no place to go

Don’t depend on anybody else

Do what you know is right

Don’t let the bad guys win!

How long will this go on?

Nobody knew for sure

Nothing To Say?

I’ve always got something to say. Just don’t want to give opinions on some things.

National and international news has been dismal of late. Trying to take the high road–not add to the divisiveness.

Love bugs seem to be back early this late summer. Weren’t they supposed to show in September? Maybe they will leave early?

Why are love bugs important? They’re not if you don’t live in the coastal southeastern United States–or, if you go on vacation to this part of the country. Their acidic dead bodies, can damage paint on the front of your car, if not removed promptly.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been without a car. No worries, I can bum rides from neighbors. till the car is released from the auto body shop.

Isn’t it crazy how all the tasks requiring an automobile flood one’s mind. So, I mowed the lawn. Now, I’m too exhausted to think about it..

Rinse, Lather, Repeat

My lawn is squishy from excessive summer rains. Please, somebody turn off the faucet.

Perusing the news. A 100-year-old fruitcake was discovered to still be edible. Any takers?

More people are cheating on their taxes. I think the same people have always cheated–just never got caught.

The parent company of IHOP and Applebees, is reportedly ready to close up to 160 underperforming outlets. Funny thing, I was just talking about our local franchise, and how it had gone downhill.

Anyone else want to see an “Apolitical Television Network?”

Radio commercials heard many times before–“make money working from home;” “reduce credit car debt forever;” “regain your brain power.” Have to give credit for persistence.

Frozen pizzas were scattered all over the highway in an Arkansas community this week, due to a delivery truck mishap.

Elvis Presley week is fast approaching. Do you have celebration plans?

Is the current crises with N. Korea like the Cold War of the past? It is a small reminder of what it was like. The Cold War was much worse. When schools start to have “duck and cover” drills, once again–then, I’ll start to worry.

Some experts alleged predicted solar eclipse maps were inaccurate.  In any case, much of the northern hemisphere, will glimpse a complete to partial eclipse.  I remember safely viewing past partial eclipses by reflections, and with welder’s helmets.

A stray cat ran across the outfield during a recent St. Louis Cardinals baseball game.  The team went on to win and the fluffy tabby will henceforth be known as “The Rally Cat.” The feral cat was later found, and I wish him/her well.

Better Things To Talk About?

A miscue, gaffe

Regurgitated

Everywhere

From highest potentate

To lowest Joe Schmoe

Till everyone’s

Cup runneth over

With latest hackneyed

Cliche word of the day

What it meant?

What was implied?

Was it foreign?

Secret code?

Something? Nothing?

Amusing?  Serious?

More questions than

An average two-year old

Could ask in a day

I’m not inclined

To join in the fray

A word that you’ll

Not, hear here
