Zombies

DeO’jie is still upset with me for changing her diet. I cut out the excessive treats. The problem is that was a major part of her diet. Too much. I’m worried what she may do to me after the zombie…

da6d Daily Ramblin’ CCXCIV

Boy, that was a big bomb! Yesterday’s “Reader’s Choice Challenge” went totally unanswered other than a suggestion to keep on writing about what I write about. I can do that. Here’s a link in case you’re curious. Reader’s Choice

Reader's Choice

Do you remember the Haiku from the April 2nd Ramblin'?


No more hockey posts 

One week, promise. But that’s all. 

Fishing anyone? 

 

Well, it’s been a week plus a few days. No one has complained about the lack of hockey…

Human Training

DeO’jie is a bit upset with me. Something has changed and she has no trouble letting me know about it.
 

Last week, she must have eaten something outside that didn’t sit well with her digestive tract. I won’t elaborate except…

Wichita Falls

“You’d better have a damn good excuse for being.” SSG Echols Miller, Drill Sergeant, U.S. Army. 
 

It was about this time 37 or so years ago that I graduated Basic Training/Advanced Individual Training at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. That’s the only…

Toe River Valley Boys

I saw this picture on Facebook last week. I knew exactly what it was when I saw it because I have seen it before. The Toe River Valley Boys were a major part of my teenage years. They played the…

Pinocchio’s Paradox

Today is Saturday, April 10, 2021. Blog No. 289 (289 is not a prime number, 17 x 17). 

It’s raining. It has rained most of the day. That’s not a bad thing at all. I’ve gotten all the mowing done…

Dandy Lions

A fine and dandy dandelion. A fine and dandy dandelion, indeed. Tulips are blooming. The daffodils in the background have bloomed and gone. If you don’t know what the purple flower is, ask Kari. She knows stuff like that. 

Daylilies…

Beauty Sleep

Beauty sleep. I haven't gotten much of that lately, maybe you've noticed. This link is from some dictionary site: Beauty Sleep

noun Informal. 
1) sleep before midnight, assumed to be necessary for one's beauty. 
2) any extra sleep.

I'll get…

Spend Lots of Money

I have a new battery! Well, the Road Wagon has a new battery. I’d had a couple of issues, including letting the battery die one night while camping. 

Everybody ought to have a mechanic. Someone they trust and is good…

Gadgets

Gadgets. That’s what this is, a gadget. CruzTools’ guitar multi-tool set. There are several Allen wrenches, screwdrivers, pokie thingies. Here’s everything a guitar player needs in a tool, except clippers. 

A couple of years ago, I was flying out of…

Coming April 17th, 2021

Wow, I haven’t seen one of these in a while. Babe’s Pizza and Treats in Burnsville, NC on Saturday April 17, 2021. I’m looking forward to an evening with Friends. It’s been a while, eh?   

My most recent CD, “I…

Tooth Hurtie

I have a dental checkup coming around soon. My least favorite part is when they poke your gums with a sharp pointy gum poker. They give themselves points for how much they make you bleed. Then they tell you how…

Game On!

Chicago. I’ve never been there other than dropping by to say “Hi" from some nearby airport. Last night, I watched the Carolina Hurricanes play the Chicago Blackhawks. At one point, I’m thinking the Blackhawks are playing a really strong game…

Flying Goalies

The Buffalo Sabres had lost 18 games straight. Wednesday night, they won 6-1 against the Philadelphia Flyers. I watched the game and pulled for the Sabres. During this 18-game skid, the Sabres lost something else. Eric Staal now plays for…

Lifetime Warranty

Sunday night, I was tying fishing flies. It was a quiet and relaxing time of the evening. I was quiet and relaxed. 

I heard something break. I thought it was the barb on a hook that I was trying to…

What Have I Lost? 

Did a few people lose it all at once, or did everybody lose it just a bit? 

Me, my marbles. I wouldn’t count on finding any of them around here. Mine are gone and scattered. 

Compassion? No, I don’t think…

Who's Got the Time?

Things happen. Some things just happen the way they happen and there is nothing to be done about it. Too late. It’s already happened.  Someone told me years ago, “There is no time, only clocks.”  

A clock's function is to…

Free Wrinkles

Fold clothes or go blind. Write a da6d Daily Ramblin’ or go bonkers. Bonkers? Been there, done that … still there, where’s that t-shirt? Maybe the laundry can wait. 

Well, here’s what a week’s worth of laundry looks like. I…

Bake Off

“Worst Cooks in America.” It’s a television show on some television network. Kari is finding inspiration binge-watching cooking shows.  

I don’t watch cooking shows with her. She doesn’t watch hockey with me. I do have a favorite, tho’. "The Great…

IKEA Wooly Buggers

I fish, therefore I am. Wednesday offered one of the best fishing days that I have seen in a long time. Spring is here and I am looking forward to many more. 

I have had little success with a woolly…

Stage Planning Stage

There’s a happening happening. In February, Kokopelli’s Daughters 501(c)3, One of a Kind Art Gallery, and Micaville Music began a quest: to build an outdoor performance venue for Micaville Music’s Thursday Evening Concert Series, Saturday Morning Jams and many more…

Go Ye Forth and Flaut

There are no excuses and it’s nobody’s fault but mine. I haven’t spent enough time with my children. My son just turned 40 and my daughter is going to be 29 plus a few. Most memories that I have are…

Get My Tether Reeled

Often, there is a need to get my tether reeled in a bit. That happened last night. 

Sunday, March 21, 2021: Janice Schilling, my marvelous editor, was editing. She was editing {{good}} well, like she always {{did}} does. She doesn’t…

. <-- You Are Here

In an infinite universe, we as a species, on a planet, orbiting a star in a solar system, in the Milky Way galaxy, are infinitely small. Our entire universe could just be dirt under the fingernail of some other species…
