Get the idea?
....yep!  I think I've finally gone over the edge, I got up a little early (1:20) and have, by now, read more than my share of the "news".  For example, employees of the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority), the electricity utility in the south just had their wages frozen for the third straight year, BUT the top five executives all got a raise, the CEO, one of the highest paid Federal employees, earns 3.95 million dollars a year.  Okay crazy maybe, definitely peed off!!
  A man in Florida (who looks like a woman, he/she is undergoing reassignment surgery) was arrested for injecting, among other things, Fix-A-Flat into a womans butt because hers was "flat".  The injection consisted of the tire sealant, cement, super glue and a couple of other things.  She is being treated at a Tampa, Florida hospital.  Crazy, for sure!  You can't make this stuff up!
You see, this is what bloggers do, just to prepare!
Just to add to the confusion, we see things like this.  This leaves us nowhere to go!
See ya! Bye!

Some of the things....

 ...I read are unbelievable.  Then there was this item in the news yesterday.  A man from Coram, New York, on Long Island was arrested for drunk driving.  This was the Headline:

A man wearing a T-shirt reading "I'm A Drunk" crashed into a police car early Thursday on Long Island and is being charged with driving while intoxicated, police said

And the shirt read:
"I'm Not An Alcoholic, I'm A Drunk. Alcoholics Go to Meetings."
My point is, Stupid people do stupid things, I hope I'm never caught dead wearing a shirt like that.

  Now that we have that "item" out of the way, let's look at some interesting stuff.  Interesting, and to whom, are the operative words in this mess:
A humorous way of looking at it, I like it!
You see, now, what fun can be had with a "serious" subject?  There are probably more interesting things to find and show you, this for example:
If the sections on this sign could light up a different times,
it could get interesting.
And, I'll leave you with this one; if anybody knows what it is, let me know:
I have no idea what this is about, maybe the "Shuttle program"?
Have an interesting day.

If I told you....

...the real reason some folks who wear glasses on the tops or backs of their heads, you wouldn't believe me.   Don't say I told you, but, they have eyes up or back there!  I know, I know it sounds weird but it's true, look.
Now do you believe me?

Do people ever tell you that they grew up barefoot?  Some people really like to be barefoot, I hate it!  If I have to go barefoot I moan and grumble, believe me.  I rarely am barefoot, only to take a shower, that's it!  But if I ever have to really go barefoot, I've found a way, take a gander.

Do you remember before we had satellite TV or cable?  Either there was an antenna up on the roof, or maybe a set of rabbit ears on top of the old black and white.  Remember how we had to move them around, tip this way, no that way, or rise it up, no no only the left side!  Remember?  It still happens.

It's getting to be colder in most of the country.  Maine is an exception for now, that won't last long.  People will be headed to Florida or Arizona.  I don't blame them, nor do I envy them.  People will go down and lay in the sun, that's not a very exciting way for me to enjoy life.  Look what might happen.
They're just waiting for next week anyway.
Enjoy your day.

A devoted fisherman....

....never thinks it's time to stop.  I have a friend who fly fishes when that is in season, and fishes other ways at different times; another friend is in bass tournaments all summer long.  Fishing is more than a pastime for many people, even after they pass on.
Now is not the time to quit!
Ever had one of those moments when you had to get the car going while people were asking what time it is?  If you have, I may have a solution for you, car parts and time pieces all in one big ride. 12 languages too!
Do you have hedges at your place.  Hedges are okay and I suppose there's a place for them even through, personally, I don't care for them.  Hedges, fences and trees all have a place in peoples lives; many people have a favorite tree.  Trees comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes and the number of species is quite large.  Here is one tree that may be unique, but then again....
Tri-tangle  tree(s)
It will be Christmas season before we know it; already the stores are showing their eagerness to make us pay through the nose for anything and everything.  But I've discovered a way to get a free tree; yeah, I know, if I go out in the woods I could do that.  The point is not all of us live where live trees are abundant, see artificial trees are used, like at our house.  If you drink enough Mountain Dew here's how to make a tree.
Merry (urp) Christmas (urp)
Have a great day, remember the "click the button" place, please.

Have you....

...forgotten where you left something?  Even for a long time?  Well people do often forget things, and as we age the forgetting may be just a bit more frequent.  But I've found evidence of somebody forgetting something for a long time:
So.........that's where I left it!
  And we still have those folks who think crop dusting will never get off the ground!  Those are highly skilled pilots and percision aircraft.  The pilots fly in exact straight lines, a quick turn and another line; it's all in a days work.  But what happens when an ametuer decides he will outfit his airplane "for the farm" and be a crop duster?
  Take a look at this:
This is not how it's done!
  Most strawberries are conical in shape, just a bright red perfectly formed fruit.  But at time when a "brand new" berry is forming it will encounter a leaf, stone or other object and the conical shape is lost.  There are also time when one blossom fosters two berries that grow together.  Now; if those two berries together are fertilized with sheep manure, look at the result:
A Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaary good berry.
  In one of the "Three Stooges" movies, one says to the other "hey! Why don't you watch where you're going?".  But what happens when you watch where you went; and not where you're going?  Here, take a look:
That does it for today, have a delightful day..........and watch where you're going!

If wishes were.... cream, we could all have a little.  I've had a wish for a long time - to own an antique car, or street rod even.  I even realize that it's not going to happen.  But I still love to look.
  Saturaday I caught a little of the Mecum Auto Auction on TV, just then they had a 1950 Chevy Fastback, know as a turtleback.  It had been slightly customized, but it had a leather interior, and a huge Cadillac engine.  It was a beauty, all black and shiny, looked brand new.  It sold for $85,000.00, now that's a chunk of change.
Similar 1950 Chevy turtleback.
  I do go to various web sites where old and custom cars are sold, I haven't found all of them yet.  The two I visit (to drool) the most are for the Goldenrod Garage in Freeport, Maine and Country Classic Cars in Staunton, Illinois on old Route 66.  The car I am currently fixated on is a Shay Replica of of Ford Model A, my fixation changes after a car is sold, they have ranged from a car like this, to an actual 1929 Studebaker truck.  I'm not picky, just like the shiny old cars.
Here's a look at my latest attraction:
What's not to like?
From the front.
Even a rumble seat (notice the leather).
  Well, there you have it, my latest dreamboat.  I did get to ride in one of these (a Ford) in the rumble seat when I was about 8 years old.  I shocked I can remember that stuff - but it's a car!

Things you might see, or drive by.

  I like vanity license plates, even though some of kind of hard to figure out, others are easy.  I think it's a fun way to express the driver/owners opinion.
  We all know that when the police pull someone over certain people forget to show proper respect, or should I say humility for the law.  Here's a good example of someone who does show respect:
And, hello to you too.
  There are times when a small business may use a vanity plate to "sort of" advertise their goods or services, see:
Hairless dogs are naked I guess.
  Some plates are just a "fun thing" or can show even more respect for the law, by agreeing with the officer:
No argument in that!
  And then there are times when an officer stops someone for let's say speeding, maybe 40 in a 25, the driver believes the officer lacks proof, and may argue:
See what I mean
  So when you're out riding along, safely and within legal limits, you may see a plate you really like, happy trails to you!
