Thoughts on the Day

  • I’m not sure if Moonshine is a labrador retriever or a beaver.  He’s been chewing on the stack of wood next to the fireplace all day.
  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang may be my favorite Bond film, after Goldfinger, of course.
    • “Zis is X, as in X und bacon!” – Comedy gold!
  • I should have refrained from drinking coffee before playing Operation with Boo today.  It sounded like I was tapping out an intelligence report from behind enemy lines.
  • Monk Cake is so good it might be a sin.
  • In the last 48 hours, we have gone through a bunch of bananas and almost a dozen large apples.   The lady at the grocery store must think we’re keeping monkeys or something.
  • I know it’s wasted time, but spending the evening playing video games with the 4-year-old was very satisfying.
  • Sprinkling bird seed on the outside window sills around the house so the birds would come right up to the window made for the best feline television I’ve ever seen.
  • The roast beast vegetable soup turned out really well.  We got enough to have a good meal with a loaf of fresh-baked wheat bread, then I canned three quarts of it.
  • Has it occurred to anyone else that the slowness of NICS checks is creating a new five-day waiting period to purchase a firearm?

    Not sure I like that NCIS slowness due to the fact I am making one or two runs tomorrow to Ahlman’s for reloading supplies…BUT..maybe something else, Cabela’s and my favorite Pawn Shop which has a nice Remington 597 with a 3×9 scope on it(I like my .22s). Will be pressed time wise and the weather is frightening right now…Sigh..the struggles we must endure..

    Spending time with your four year old is not wasted regardless of what the activity happens to be. Indeed, it is one of the true essences of life.
