In a While

Well, I have an excuse for not writing a blog for the next few days. I will be travelling for sad family business. I may have the time to write, but the blogs tend to reflect my mood and I am sure my moods will not be upbeat.

Try to keep yourselves busy for the coming few days. Here’s a challenge, try to find something good to say about Trump. Something like, “He is going to die eventually…GOOD!” “At least he isn’t in charge of my country.” “A wall has two sides.” Things like that.

Talk to you later…

Fat Rat

So, back to the weather roller coaster. We have just had a week of really good winter weather and are now entering minus double digits and snow for the next two or three days. Not a lot of snow and anything under minus twenty is liveable. It is February in Canada after all.

I know that my friends on Vancouver Island are anxiously watching for the daffodils to start pushing out of the soil. The grass never goes brown and brittle and sometimes the temperature dips below plus ten. Of course when that happens the collective tears start to flow all over the island.

Suck it up buttercups!

In a week or two it will be spring no matter what the fat rat in Punxsutawny says. Shadow or no shadow, my buddy on the island will be walking along the beach with his metal detector working on his rusted bottle cap collection.

It doesn’t matter what the fat rat says for us here either because we will be expecting snow and cold weather right up till the May 24th long weekend. The real cold weather will have stopped mid to late March, but it will be only the hardiest of tulips that poke out of the still frozen ground here.

I’m not bitter…really. I just don’t understand why my sea faring ancestors from England didn’t jump ship when they hit the Hawaiian Islands. Beautiful weather, half naked people hanging around on beaches all day and if they want a snack they just had to reach up and pull some fruit from a tree or fight off a sea bird for his latest catch. That’s an island!

They could have jumped ship in San Francisco as well; I know they spent some time there. Mind you I am just as happy that I’m not an American citizen at this point in time. I would be terribly embarrassed by the morons that are running the good old USA now. At least if you are in Hawaii during these turbulent political times, YOU ARE IN HAWAII!!!!!

I think tomorrow is a soup day and maybe I will watch ten or fifteen hours of must see TV wrapped in a blanket. Well, after my Tim’s run of course. It is ROLL-UP-THE-RIM time in Canada.

Life Is A Circle

I can't put off writing the blog until just before bedtime because I now spend that time watching what the late night shows are saying about Trump.

I had a blog, but there is no time to write it before the Sandman comes. He can be a real pain in the ass if you aren't at least in bed and trying to fall asleep. He can put the sand in your eye the easy way or the hard way...your choice. I hate it when something gets in my eye.

He kind of reminds me of my dad on the fifth time he came and told us to get to bed. Not a pretty sight and sometimes he would have the "CLOTHES BRUSH" in his hand. Done deal dad! 

Shortly after that is when my brother would start talking about the monster in the closet or under the bed. I was pretty sure there wasn't a monster in the bedroom anywhere, but there was no way I would test my theory. I didn't even take the chance of hanging my foot over the edge of the bed, and I sure as Hell wouldn't call my dad to get rid of the monsters. I would piss myself first. I probably did a few times.

Funny how talking about my incontinence when I was a kid fits right in with Trump's "Golden Shower".
