New look?

During a recent update to the old theme some error were introduced to the code. Which may or may not make the site an easy target for hackers. I switched to a different theme until the problem is fixed or a new theme is found.

The theme I am using is cute and different but it has a mind of its own. I make changes to the side bars and save it. The changes show up on the preview but when activated works for 2 minutes and goes back to the stock set up. Frustrating a heck.

I’m looking at several themes that may work the way I want it to but when it comes to customizing them I’m all thumbs. In the next few weeks you may see different themes popping up. Enjoy the ride. BWAHAHAHA!!

Thank you Sandee!

Thank you to Sandee for riding herd on the Feline Friday gang!

My sister-in-law (Sally) and neice-in-law (Beth) moved to Florida and stayed with us for a while. I had to give up my computer room / office / MAN CAVE for a bed room. In order to make room I had to take apart my computer, printer, and “junk” table out of the room.

Sally had a jo9b waiting for her here so we had a little chance to visit. So, Beth Pat and I went out looking for a house for them to rent. We saw some great houses with fantastic rent. Actually I found a great house that I’d like but Pat said no to us moving there. It was on a canal that led to a river that eventually went into the Gulf. The price was reasonable but it was in a flood zone and had mosquitoes.

They found a house about 4 blocks away from us. Then Beth found a job so getting them moved in was a slow process. I now finally have my Man Cave back and am slowly moving my stuff back in.

Things will still be a little slow from my end for a little while.

BTW I’m having trouble accessing my email but that should be taken care of over the weekend.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

I’m confused


It must be old age. The last 2 weeks have been kind crazy. I show up at the wrong Doctor’s office on the right day. Then I show up at the right Doctor’s off on the wrong day. My days and time have been off all over the place. I even got the Feline Friday post out late.

I’ve bee so messed up I ask God help me out. Strangely I heard, “Yes, I’m here.”

I said, “God?” He said, “Son, how may I help you?”

I said, “God, my times and days are off. I just can’t seem to do things on the right days or times.” God said, “Son, don’t worry. Eternity is forever,”

I said, “God can I ask you a question?” “Go right ahead,” God said.

“God, what is a million years to you?” God said, “a million years to me is only a second.”

“Hmmm,” then I asked, “God, what is a million dollars worth to you?”

God said, “a million dollars to me is as a penny.”

Then I said “Can I have a penny?”

And God cheerfully said, “Sure!!…..just a second.”

Decisions.. Decisions… Decisions…


Today is Tuesday and I don’t know what to post. Should I post a joke? Should I post something political. Yes I know politics today can be considered a joke. Should I post something about what’s happening in Florida or how things are falling apart in Chicago and Illinois where I used to live? I just can’t make up my mind.

Soooo… Let me share this little story with you.

The President Obama had a heart attack, and his doctor told him to a farm to relax for several weeks. The big “O” went to a farm, and after a couple of days he was very bored, so he asked the farmer to give him some job to do.

The farmer told him to clean the shit of the cows. The farmer thought that to some politician, not working his whole life just sitting in an office, will take over a week to finish the job, but for his surprise the President finished the job in less than one day.

The next day the farmer gave to the the President a more difficult job: to cut the heads of 500 chickens. The farmer was sure that the President will not be able to do the job, but at the end of the day the job was done.

The next morning, as most of the jobs in the farm were done, the farmer asked the President to divide a bag of potatoes in two boxes: one box with small potatoes, and one box with big potatoes. At the end of the day the farmer saw that the President was sitting in front of the potatoes bag, but the two boxes were empty.

The farmer asked Obama: “How is that you made such difficult jobs during the first days, and now you cannot do this simple job?”

Obama answered: “Listen, all my life I’m cutting heads and dealing with shit, but now you ask me to make decisions.

Not good news..

1 sad face

If you are a regular, or even semi-regular, visitor to my little piece of the world, you know I don’t usually post to much about myself or my family. So here goes…

Pat (my wife) and I have been visiting a kidney doctor for several years. Well, to make a long story short, we’ve both had kidney disease for a long, long time. It has recently gone into “stage 4. Stage 5 means dialysis. The doctors will be redoing kidney tests in a couple of months.

Here’s the big problem I have 2 kidneys but Pat has 1. Many years ago Pat donated a kidney to her sister. Her sister had something called lupus that attacked her kidneys. Pat was a 99.999999996% match to her sister. It was considered a perfect match so the transplant was done. Unfortunately the .000000006 didn’t. Pat has been operating on 1 kidney for about 30 years.

I don’t know why I’m telling you this. Maybe it is helping me to wrap my brain around the idea of going on dialysis easier.

P.S. I every one had a good St. Patrick’s day.


A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin. Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!

Over the last several months, Wisconsin’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
(That’s more men under arms than in Iran. More than France and Germany combined.)

These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, and NO ONE WAS KILLED. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It’s millions more.

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower!

Hunting… it’s not just a way to fill the freezer.

It’s a matter of national security.

That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Food for thought, when next we consider gun control.

Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain.

What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens?

For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” is a quote by Isoroku Yamamoto, Commander-in-Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War
