I seem to have managed to reclaim some of the original blog design? I'm not entirely happy, though. When I do that stuff it becomes difficult to hide the inner geek who understands that for every debit there must be a credit... or that nothing's free, somebody's paying.
It's you!

Sometimes I can't help myself

This is very timely. The latest newsletter from The Texas Gardener' Seeds said: Put up a bat house to encourage the presence of these shy animals. Bats consume 3,000 or more mosquitoes and other insects nightly, and bats are less likely to be rabid than dogs are. Need another reason? Bats are responsible for up to 95 percent of the seed dispersal essential to the regeneration of forests.
Our planet is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing creatures. Here are three from the Bat Family...without the need for resorting to fiction.

I will be very happy when I can screw up the appearance of this blog on my own computer. This using borrowed units sucks... but not as much as having no access.

I attempted to make one small change in the appearance of thid blog. It was supposed to be a simple change to the color of the title's text.
Silly me.
Now it appears that I am gonna have to go into extreme makeover mode when I want to change it back.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Yeah, I did that

Updated the title color, that is... for the rest of October

Okay, it's official

I don't subscribe to any newspapers. I was tire of looking for the damn thing every morning and then finding that they didn't agree with most of my views anyway. About the only thing I miss is the comics. So I started looking for them on the WEB. Yesterday's post was a sample of one that I view almost daily. Today it may be even better.

It's one game at a time.

Oh, and I almost hate that the season has been stretched out so darn long.

The Englishman's wife steps up to the tee. As she bends
over to place her ball, a gust of wind blows her skirt up
and reveals a lack of underwear. "Good Lord woman!
Why aren't you wearing any bloomers?" her husband

"Well, you don't give me enough housekeeping money
to afford any."

The Englishman immediately reaches into his pocket
and says, "For the sake of decency, here's 20. Go buy
yourself some underwear."

Next, the Irishman's wife bends over to set her ball on
the tee. Her skirt also blows up to show that she too
is wearing no undies. "Blessed Virgin Mary, woman!
Ye've no knickers. Why not?"

She replies, "I can't afford any on the money you give

He reaches into his pocket and say, "For the sake of
decency, here is 10. Go buy yourself some underwear!"

Lastly the Scotsman's wife bends over. The wind also
takes her skirt over her head to reveal that she, too,
is naked under it. "Sweet mudder of Jesus, Aggie! Where
are yer drawers?"

She too explains, "You dinna give me enough money ta
be able ta affarrd any."

The Scotsman reaches into his pocket and says "Well, fer
the love 'o Jesus, here's a comb. Tidy yerself up a bit."

Imagine getting a phone call from another blogger.
Whatever could be so important that it needed instant response?
Well, lemme tell ya. It was all about another blogger who we both follow... when she bothers to post.
I'm sure it was brought about by the commencement of the baseball playoffs... but it has little to do with baseball and more to do with speculation about who she's dating. I'm saying it's nobody on the Giants and definitely not Buster Posey. In fact I am of the opinion that it isn't even a player, but someone in the front office of the Philadelphia Phillies.
That's as far as I am going with this because I am pretty sure I've already stuck my neck out far enough.

Sure Happy It's Thursday

A guy starts talking to two women in a bar. They
turn out to be Siamese twins and they wind up
back at his apartment.

He makes love to one, and then starts to work on
the other. He thinks the first one might get bored
watching, so he asks her what she'd like to do.

She says, "Is that a trombone in the corner? I'd
love to play your trombone."

So she plays it while he makes love to her sister.

A few weeks later, the girls are walking past his
apartment building. One of the girls says, "Let's
stop up and see that guy."

The other girl says, "Gee... do you think he'll
remember us?"

So... who gets to choose


We don't get to decide what our kids are going to do with their lives. We only get to decide how we're going to deal with it.

Road Trip

While on a road trip, an elderly couple stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch. After finishing their meal, they left the restaurant, and resumed their trip. When leaving, the elderly woman unknowingly left her glasses on the table, and she didn't miss them until they had been driving for about forty minutes.
By then, to add to the aggravation, they had to travel quite a distance before they could find a place to turn around, in order to return to the restaurant to retrieve her glasses.
All the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy old man. He fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly during the entire return drive. The more he chided her, the more agitated he became. He just wouldn't let up for a single minute.To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant. As the woman got out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old geezer yelled to her,

“While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card.”

Maybe it's the Irish?

Two Irish nuns have just arrived in the USA by boat
and one says to the other, "I hear that the people
of this country actually eat dogs."
"Odd," her companion replies, "but if we shall live
in America , we might as well do as the Americans do."
As they sit, they hear a push cart vendor yell
"Get your dogs here" and they both walk
towards the hot dog cart.
"Two dogs, please! ," says one. The vendor is
very pleased to oblige, wraps both hot dogs in
foil and hands them over. Excited, the nuns
hurry to a bench and begin to unwrap their 'dogs'.
The mother superior is first to open hers.
She begins to blush and then, staring at it for
a moment, leans to the other Nun and whispers

"What part did you get"?

Canada... again?

Two Irishmen flew to Canada on a hunting trip. They chartered a small plane to take them into the Rockies for a week hunting moose.
They managed to bag six. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose.
The two lads objected strongly. "Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all and he had the same plane as yours."
Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. The plane took off. However, while attempting to cross some mountains, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down.
Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, only Paddy and Mick survived the crash.
After climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick, "Any idea where we are?"
Mick replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."
