 All that rain in Texas? That's what happens when an atheist prays for rain.

Fruit and Vegetables


I've noticed lately that the quality of fruit and vegetables are deteriorating rapidly. I've had a number of items go bad in the last week. The other day I threw out a half bag of potatoes. Yesterday, I cut an onion and only the outside was good. The inside was rotten. In the last week its been the same for blueberries, tomatoes, peaches and lettuce. Something wrong with the supply chain. Shipping has slowed down too much. It's not like you can hoard fruit and vegetables.

Not good for the Conservative Party. The new leader doesn't have hair like Trudeau. People are so shallow.

Ramage's Mutiny (The Lord Ramage Novels, #8) by Dudley Pope

This was a good story. Still had some parts with excessive explanations but much better than the first few books. Not too much moaning and complaining about his girlfriend.

Hospital Visit

Had to pay a visit to the hospital last evening to get an x-ray of my thumb. A couple of weeks ago, it started popping out at the joint. I tell you that's a surprise when it happens. Went to the doctor last week and then I had to make an appointment for the x-ray. So now I wait for the doctor to call to see what this is all about. You don't know how much you use your thumb until you lose the use of it. A simple job like opening the button on my pants is difficult.

Point of View

No matter what your point of view is, you will always find someone who will say the opposite.

Rescued Fan

The other day I noticed my neighbor throwing out a vertical fan into the garbage. My air force electronics training makes me want to look at this. So I grabbed it and took it apart to see what the problem was. Usually these things need a spot of oil to unseize the motor. It wasn't the motor and the actual problem really surprised me. It was a blown fuse. The blown fuse didn't surprise me, it was the idea of having a fuse in a fan. Never seen that before. It was a small glass fuse and I couldn't find a replacement, so I used a larger glass fuse and hard wired it in. Worked like a charm and I have another fan.

Commiting a Crime

One thing I learned from watching crime shows is that if you commit a crime, make sure you go to your job the next day. Police love to 
hear, "He didn't show up for work today."

If you tell a secret or gossip about someone, no matter how far away they are, they will probably hear it.

"Streets of Laredo" by Larry Murtry

When I started this book, I didn't know if this was a serious story or a comedy and whether I should continue reading it. Then the excessive treatment of the Mexican woman made up my mind. I just skimmed thru the rest of the book just to see who would meet their demise.
