    I get to go to the market to pick up the Australian Mint plant that my friend remembered I wanted from last year after we went to Butchart Gardens and they had one that I fell in love with!

    Cinco de cuatro: just another in a LONG line of “what if Bush had said this” gaffes.

    If Obambi is defeated (from my lips to God’s ears) this Nov, and beaten soundly, will the kkm ever feel they have to distance themselves from the fail and write about what a putz this loser is?

    Me, I am going stir crazy sitting around the house recuperating from a fall. Fell flat on my back from a five gallon bucket and landed on a concrete block edging around the flower beds.
    Bruised for sure and probably cracked my ribs in the back.
    It hurts to move, burp or cough and a sneeze practically kills me.
    So, lots of reading, TV, internet. Stuff I usually don’t have enough time for, but it got old quick.

    What sucks the most though is that I had just finished, the evening before I fell, a month long project, a .308 cal. AR sniper rifle build. I want to go sight it in, but now I won’t be able to do so for another three weeks or so.

    I’m spending the day wondering why the news media didn’t excoriate Barackula Ogabe (teh won) for the Sinko dey Kwatro gaffe with the same intensity they went after G.W. Bush’s less culturally insensitive ones.

    I am still trying to recover fully from this damn strep superbug :(
    I have to stay indoors as it is too hot to go outside.

    I still haven’t found a decent job since I was laid off a couple years ago so I play didgeridoo at farmers markets, fairs and festivals and sell some that I make. I am spending the day playing didge at a Cinco de Mayo celebration/Farmers Market in Northern Florida trying to sell didgeridoos to the crowd. So far so good!

    Brad, sorry about the gravity, make the most of your reading/surfing time. A grand summer awaits us and you have a delightful bangstick to fill it with.

    Melissa, keep getting better. If they wouldn’t melt on the drive I’d bring you frozen adult beverages to cool you off.

    Have you seen Avengers? Maybe that extra electricity will finish off the bug.
    (Thor v Ironman scene–475%!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    If you’re not contagious, take in the theatre AC and the movie!

    good idea, mech.
    That stuff went from strep throat, to strep pneumonia and scarlet fever…
    Kicked my butt it did!

    Scarlett fever!? Well we certainly give a damn that you’re getting better.

    *stays focused, fever–not Johanson–now I have a fever. . . —. . .*

    Tell us how you like the movie.

    Geezerette, the strep cascaded before they realized it was resistant to a LOT of antibiotics.
    I was darn fortunate that they found the right combination of antibiotics. I was on antibiotics for a week and it kept getting worse.
    Scared the bejabbers out of me, I must admit.

    DONKEY!!! Sorry it had to be said.

    I am so very sick and tired of Spanish commercials on English channels on TV. I speak Spanish and it annoys Me.

    OMG ¿Qué están tratando de hacer!
    (What are they trying to do)

  23. Posted May 5, 2012 at 3:24 pm |

    I fell off a bicycle last Sunday at about 1 mph. Some thoughtless son-of-a-bitch had left a cast iron park bench there, about 5 years before, right where I was trying to fall onto the nice soft grass.

    I managed to hit my face, my arm and my chest (where I’m pretty sure I broke a rib). The cats are lucky I can still get up to feed them.

    What am I saying? they would just eat me if I didn’t feed them. I’m sleeping locked and loaded tonight… right after I howl at the moon. That should piss them off.

    Pity from me, Hog. I broke two a few months ago, and it seems like they just recently quit hurting.

    ^ Yeah, you’re right, MsMelissa; but livin’ aboard a sailboat for 3-1/2 years makes one appreciate the art of the man.
    So does drinking while dancing on a beach.
    (What? Yeah, I miss livin’ aboard, sometimes.)

    I’m starting to feel guilty because I haven’t fallen and hurt myself— thanks Alan– had a brain fart and as many times as I’ve watched Big Bang could not remember soft kitty little ball of fur— the notes but not the words–Hope you all recover faster than predicted—

    Best wishes Brad. Happened to me 10 years ago, not much you can do but rest. I had the unfortunate mishap of sneezing, which I had tried to prevent about 2 weeks into recovery and the fracture returned.

    So what is Obama going to do today, eat the Taco Bell Chihuahua?

    This is what I planned for tonight and executed – capturing the “Super Moon.” This is at The Cove at Concord Park in Knoxville, TN.

    By co-incidence, loading the magazines on my new 7.62×51 AR sniper rifle and a couple of .40s for a trip to the range tomorrow. Sorry Brad, I’ll think of you.

    Seriously, hope you’re better soon.

    MiT, Damn. I didn’t realize it was quite that bad for you! I got a bacteria almost a year ago that should have been named The Wrath of God Unlimited. Luckily they guessed right on the antibiotic pretty soon or I’m not sure what would have happened. I was still over a month coming back very strong even after it got wiped out. All the same not near what happened to you. Continuing best wishes for you…. OH! and you can print yourself out a poster that says “I AM a Survivor” and hang it on your wall.

    Geezerette, I’ve noticed that lately I’m resorting more to an actual ladder and less to chairs, buckets, and even less wisely chosen step-ups. After reading this thread, I think I’m gonna follow your lead exclusively on this. By the way, when I said “chair” I mean sometimes and office chair with wheels. Which might make me, on past occasions, damn near as dumb as Slow Joe Biden.

    Dhairshirt #31 You picture is awesome!! Took some pix here (Southern U.P) but too much cloud cover—
    I in Denver I’m short so in my day I’ve used what ever means there are to reach things— even a pail– had to do some fancy stepping when that thing tipped over— lucky me landed on my ass instead of my back — not since a gal I knew in her late 40′s was hanging xmas decorations– fell off what ever she was standing on hit her head on a table. Husband was a teacher and didn’t get home till late and found her — that did it for me— ladder it is– and not if we are home alone— depending why we are climbing—

    Sorry to go off the off topic but I stopped to ask my my local neighborhood communist party member if her family was going to watch the Derby and she was clueless. ‘Said they were celebrating cinco de quatro. That was pretty weird. Out with the family, in another area, just after sunset we heard a fireworks display that went on for five minutes. Almost makes sense considering there is a huge illegal alien enclave but it was in the white neighborhood with all the government-job-fatted libs. (Think GSA Vegas vacation every day.) I would expect they were singing the internationale. I really think that they do. There are a LOT of them in our Federal government. (Neighbor in question: Former USAF now DoD contractor and wife teaches English to illegals at a local elementary school.)

    5 May? That explains the fireworks last night. I was too tired to connect the dots by that time.

    Spent the day being productive. Rebuilt the last 1/3 of the retaining wall I’ve been putzing with for the last couple years. I’ve really gotten quite good at it. Finally have it done right and it’s on the straight and level. Fixed the profuse oil leak on my DRZ. The rear axle had shifted positions throwing the whole drive train akimbo. Then pulled the bed liner out of the truck, washed everything down, pulled the 5th wheel rails that have not been used in the last four years. Had to grind the heads off half the carriage bolts cause I couldn’t get at the nuts. Then I put the bed liner back in. Now I have to figure out how to connect the two strips of bed liner that were cut out for the hitch rails. Might be able to use the hitch rails to straighten the frame on my son’s car, but that’s another weekend. I’m trying to get my house rent ready so when I get a job I can move and not loose my but on this house.

    It might be hard to believe, but I actually know the guy who wrote, sang, and over-voiced this commercial. The great Larry Kenney. Coo-coo for Coco-Puffs is another one he did, amongst many others. That cat running into that cabinet door? That was him too. Or was it a dog? I forget. I’m pretty sure it was something called Chuck Wagon. I think he bought his first house with that. And then he put his kids through college.

    He’s also appeared on at least a couple of my songs. I know some of the strangest people.

    What am I saying? I just wrote this on this website!
