"The completely perplexed business associate who arrived after the men were being arrested can be seen on video captured at the time. I have not seen yet if he ordered a coffee or needed to use the restroom but he did avoid arrest despite behaviors…"

"Well now. Maybe if they had just bought a candy bar, eh? I've read the responses these young men had about the experience. They were there to begin a business meeting. They are very clear about that, and quite articulate as they do so. Nobody…"

"Good point. I remember how we would all laugh like crazy when grandpa stumbled or spilled hot coffee on himself, and at how grandma was so often worn out from helping him. Of course the mirth subsided when it killed him at age 62. Damn funny stuff."

Laughing at Disabilities: Humor Challenge Fails

Posted on April 14, 2018 at 7:32am 6 Comments

I'm not going to be jumping in with the "Challenge" idea promoted here and underway.

I expected that soon enough, it would flop. 

Past tense. Flopped.

One of the posts now has taken a disgusting turn and seeks to derive laughs by mocking an illness which creates great disability and ultimately can lead to death.

Having had family members who suffered with Parkinson's Disease ( no, this is not my slice of life contribution ) I am particularly offended by…

50 and Counting

Posted on April 4, 2018 at 12:02pm 7 Comments

 As emailed to my small group of friends this morning:

Mike, a Sioux Indian,  and I sat down in the entrance foyer of our High School and began what grew into a larger gathering of students paying silent homage.

The taunts of a few racist bastards walking by did not faze us.

There is a picture of that…

Why I Hate Set-ups

Posted on March 30, 2018 at 2:00pm 16 Comments

It's going to be a busy weekend. No time to write for a few days.

Perhaps next week I will set down and write a really scathing post. I hope when you read it you will understand that I am the final arbiter.

If you agree with me please include a note placating me and telling me how advanced I am in my thought process, even if I am not.

If you disagree, expect me to tear into you like some sort of rabid wombat, questioning your entire life experience and…

Cage Match Pending

Posted on March 22, 2018 at 11:00am 15 Comments

A couple of things need to happen yet but it appears that the Savage from Scranton will be taking on the Ninny from NYC in a cage match.

Despite hopes that it could be a simple duel in a field with the modern day equivalent of the Wogdon & Barton dueling pistols used in the Burr-Hamilton squabble, current news events and tragedies have tempered the desire for such carnage.

In lieu of such, both fighters have been working out in private, fine tuning their skills and…

It sounds good though, heavier or not, to me.  Any stories about roughing it touch my spirit.  Keep me ...  um ... grounded!  Tx.
