Back to painting and sweat blogging….
Took a few days off to do some travel and then a day of rest and a day of yard work.. a three acre or so yard to mow and acres more of trees to worry with and pick up limbs around keep me busy.
Played in a free roll poker tournament. Came home with my investment intact. For you non-players a “free roll” means it costs nothing to enter, thus my investment was nothing and my grubby gambling winnings was…nothing. Rats. But I did have fun!
Pulled up all the tomato plants and watered the bell peppers, cucumbers, squash and okra. Everything except the okra is on its last legs. The okra will grow until the frost hits.
Froze enough black eyed peas to make a dent in the winter’s grocery bills. Corn and homemade spaghetti mix is frozen and ready. The okra is next on the list… Okra and spaghetti with the special mix and a salad on a cold winter night. Wow.
Hotter than normal summers always seem to follow colder than normal winters.
I see that the hoodoos in NYC have approved the Muslims building a mosque on the 9/11 site… and for those who want to argue, the landing gear of one of the hijacked airliners went through the building…. but hey! Why should we care when Muslims want to do what they want to do?
Aren’t we supposed to just be soooooooo tolerant? Can someone tell me when my turn comes?
“Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.” – Karl Popper
And don’t forget Muslim Six Flags Day on 9/12! My, my what a coincidence!
Brett Favre is retiring is not retiring… again.
Am I the only person to get the connection between Bart Star and Brett Favre and Bart Maverick and Bret Maverick?????
Good news… The University of Tennessee has signed the nation’s top punter. Bad news…. We’ll probably need him.

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt
"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
