From the “Well, Isn’t *THAT* Special!” Dept:

I had thought that I might well have fulfilled my quota of nitwits menacing the local roads and that thought lasted all of about five minutes after dropping off Katie and heading over to the BJ's petrol station as the Traverse was definitely suggesting that a fuller tank would be infinitely preferable than walking in this chilly weather! Normally there's quite the queue to get into this petrol station which has two one-way entrances on…

On the harrowing journey to deliver Katie to her shift of purveying the fish water at the White Oak Target, we were treated to a two-fer on the back roads that will introduce a brand new category on the BLOG entitled "People I Can Do Without" in homage to the legendary comedian George Carlin who did this bit and was a welcome bit of refreshing venting for those of us whose tolerance for dopey nitwits…

It’s not where you start but where you finish that counts. Zig Ziglar Of all of the things I have to be thankful for this tumultuous year we've had in 2023, finally making it to this last day of the year in a much better place than I was a couple of weeks ago is probably one of the most meaningful. It most certainly didn't come easy but then nothing in this life worth experiencing…

Lord knows we've had a couple of them through the last few hundred years here in the Great State of North Cackalacky known to everyone else as North Carolina. To be sure, there was this rather unpleasant business a little over 160 years ago we were dragged into rather unwillingly being trapped between a rival capital placed in the commonwealth north of us and some rather radical firebrands to our south who ultimately lit the…

Understatement (n): a statement that describes something in a way that makes it seem less important, serious, bad, etc. than it really is, or the act of making such statements. Cambridge Dictionary These past couple of days, it's been a real struggle trying to find the theme for this year's story marking the eighth anniversary of getting the phone call I really could have done without for a few more years. And *THAT* would be…

Today I got the news that I'm sure is totally going to shock zero of my dear readers...the Traverse failed in her attempt to thwart the debugging process and the brand-new transmission that failed downtown will be replaced by an even newer transmission that will hopefully last more than three days! At least it's under warranty which means the new transmission and labour are covered which is a good thing because that bill was already…
