Is there anything that tastes better than Béarnaise sauce over a grilled filet mignon? I think not.

I wonder whatever happened to Vancity?

I slept in this morning, which is good because I woke up yesterday at 4:50am and could not get back to sleep.

The ex must not be enjoying her vacation to the Bay Area: she sent my daughter and me a text article with the headline "Your kids should not be the most important in the family". She sent it at 7:35 am PDST. She is most definitely not a morning person.

Ummm, okay.

My son's tuition is due on Friday. Ouch.

^^ She sent that to her daughter??? She can't take that back. That's rotten.

I'm helping my son move into his apartment near his campus. He's on the second half of his Two-and-two program. I'm going to miss him terribly.

My bike fell off the car before I got out of my town. I have to find a shop that can repair it so I can ride Presque Isle trail.

Closing the pool sucks, but the neighbors ash tree is going to start dumping leaves by the bushel basket any day now.

I deactivated my account on the NextDoor Neighbors web site. It was interesting until our next door neighbor accused us of being racists and bigots.

I'm sure a lot of people could accuse you of a lot of things (drunk dialing), but that doesn't seem to be on the list.


Watched some K-State country line dancers
Saw the new Star Wars movie. I love the little birds.

The church on the side I go to on Sunday evenings sang traditional carols and had a Christmas themed message. They had a soup and cookies get together afterwards that I actually went to. It ended up being a good evening.

Church (service was in our newly renovated 1889 chapel)
Stuffed all the packed Christmas decorations up in the attic for hibernation
Vacuumed house
2 loads of laundry
Watched Panthers loose


We had a scare Friday night when we got a phone call the Mrs. P's dad went to the hospital. He went home that night, but Mrs. P wanted to be over there this weekend. I figured I'd have that stuff done when she got home. She was so distracted she didn't noticed for about an hour.

Hollywood is calling for my movie rights. I wonder how much those go for and what will it be titled. Gotta call my agent.

I decided it was warm enough to wash the salt and winter grime off my navy blue car yesterday. I learned a lesson, too. It’s hard to see all the grime on a dark colored dirty car when the car wash is poorly illuminated. I just got back from re-washing it. Looks much better.

"Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time..."

"I was reading the dictionary. I thought it was a poem about everything."

"In Vegas, I got into a long argument with the man at the roulette wheel over what I considered to be an odd number."

"Whenever I think of the past, it brings back so many memories."

"I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done."

"I intend to live for ever. So far, so good."

Three text messages were marked as "Not Delivered" last night. I guess I was blocked and no one wants to hear my responses.

I am convinced, beyond a reasonable doubt, that our congressman is not blind. He has a regional office across the hall from me. He has two staff members: both blonde, young, slim, and attractive. One drives a Mercedes.

A few nights ago, ZG inadverntly elbowed my ribs. Just above the scar where the tube was inserted and removed to treat my partially collapsed lung.

I napped by the pool yesterday. Now I have sunburn. Doctor will not be happy with me.

It’s too cold to play outside, so it’s a nesting day. Breakfast for the week is done, downstairs is clean. I’m going to a graduation dinner at 6, which is a little later than I’d like to go, but it’s family.

Went to the in-laws yesterday afternoon. Very hot and everyone stayed inside. The original idea was to grill hotdogs, but that changed and we stopped by the grocery store and bought several meats, cheeses, lettuce, et cetera and made a deli bar. Much better.

After we went home, I unpacked my dad's day gift of a new grill and put it together. Not a bad day.

Hope all you Father's...Dad's...had a great day!

I'm experiencing sleep and bowel issues. The fault lies squarely on The Palouse!!

Does the Flat Earth Society believe only the Earth is flat and not the other planets? Asking for a friend. :D

Friday, I bitched on my blog about how Harley Quinn's origin story is a mansplained piece of crap that completely craps on the idea of women having any agency.

Saturday, I republished my five page alternate origin story that makes some actual sense given what we see of the character in the story where she was introduced, before they tacked on some ridiculous origin story that doesn't hold water and then began having the Joker be abusive to her in line with the ridiculous origin story.

It's Sunday. Why hasn't this gone viral yet? Why don't I have a Hollywoood movie offer yet for writing a script?

No one appreciates my genius. :-@:-@:-@

Nesting day, and the house smells like the lasagne that’s in the oven.

I'm saying it one more time: it's not my job to find a location for your consumption on-premises liquor license.

I may have a sinus infection. I'm not down with any antibiotics, though. I'll tough it out. Most sinus infections resolve on their own if you do/take nothing.

Temps are in the low 50’s and I’m not ready to turn on the furnace. There’s a whole lotta cooking going on here this afternoon. I raised the temperature in the house by 4 degrees. Now, if those dishes would just put away themselves away, this would be a perfect day.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care - as well as all of the rest of Christmas decorating at the house.

We still have the family room tree to put up as well as the village, but are otherwise done with putting up decorations.

I saw Sasquatch yesterday!!!

Went to the in-laws yesterday and as we were leaving we looked in the woods across the street and saw Sasquatch leaning against a tree. My BIL later told us, the neighbors made a full-size plywood cutout and put it up on New Years and left it.

A neighbor sent my wife a photo before Christmas with the question... can he build it. Today I installed exactly what they asked for and they handed me cash. I am going back tomorrow to install a few trim pieces because I don’t like how some of the lines are, but overall, I am happy with it.

That is how I spent the second half of my Sunday. The first half was learning and talking about Genesis 1:27.
