Mon Nov 30 08:16:45 CST 2015	My Own Choice of Words

 I have my own choice of words for people who abandon their animals
 without any attempt at arrangement for adoption or shelter. I have
 my on verbal poison for those who dump them in our neighborhood,
 as if we're the city animal dumping ground.

Sat Nov 28 19:42:01 CST 2015	Fraudluent Charges Horror Stories

 Keep an eye on your bank and credit card transactions. The fraudulent

 Homeowners using ADT security systems, please be on the alert for
 an alleged ADT "repair person" that called upon a homeowner in

Sun Nov 22 23:01:03 CST 2015	Why I Voted Early

 No lines, no crowds, and you're in and out quick. If something
 like bad weather or the job gets in the way on that day, there's
 still another chance to cast your vote.

Tue Nov 17 09:03:32 CST 2015	Straight Folk

Straight folk who keep using the noun "fag" in my presence will be
regarded as a tourist and treated accordingly.

Tue Nov 10 10:24:43 CST 2015    So ... How was my Monday?

 It started with this batty Tiger Trails bus operator carrying us
 down the wrong way in a construction zone nearly colliding with
 another vehicle, then she turns into the wrong way on North St.

Mon Nov  9 20:10:34 CST 2015    The Old Student Union

 I miss the old student union when it wasn't some mini-mall
 food-court. I miss the bowling alley, good coffee in heavy china
 mugs, and the old bookstore with all kinds of neat stuff you
 wouldn't find anywhere else. The barber shop is gone, too

Sat Oct 31 16:19:06 CDT 2015    "Fall Back"

 Don't forget to "fall back" your non-networked time devices one
 hour before you turn in for the night then help yourself to an
 extra hour of sleep.

Wed Oct 28 21:43:01 CDT 2015    Mountain of Patience

 Being condescended to is a sore point with me. I made my own way
 in life and there were times when I figuratively - and literally
 - pulled myself out of a situation by my own boot-straps my own
 sweat and my own - rare as they may be - my own smarts. I can be
 a sweet human being and a loyal friend. I can be a mountain of
 patience but when I've had enough, that's it. I want absolutely
 nothing to do with someone who repeatedly condescends to me.

Tue Oct 27 15:05:42 CDT 2015    Grow a Pair

 When you finally grow a pair and start standing up for yourself,
 then you're suddenly a total asshole in the of eyes of those who
 condescended to you.

Mon Oct 26 09:39:29 CDT 2015

 One of those times I should be grateful I live where I do. Highest
 ground in the city. Spanish Town Historic District.

 Nothing like trimming the ole beard and a whisker flies into an

Mon Oct 12 09:29:30 CDT 2015    Monday Mornings

 Nothing like waking up to the sound of exploding transformers and
 wondering if you're going to have to get ready for work in the

Sun Oct 11 11:31:18 CDT 2015    Haircut Selfies

 I just realized that about the only time I take a "selfie" is when
 I get a haircut so I can show the barber how I want it to look
 the next time. :-)

Fri Oct  9 09:13:12 CDT 2015    Washer and Dryer

 An increase in rent with the promise of a washer and dryer in my
 apartment. Happy Friday.

Thu Oct  8 08:21:05 CDT 2015    Anguish of Abandonment

 I'd rather keep to myself than risk the anguish of abandonment.

Wed Oct  7 15:37:32 CDT 2015    Do for Myself

 I will do for myself before I will risk the injury of a broken

Thu Oct  1 15:06:30 CDT 2015    #pinkwashing

 When I refer to #pinkwashing, it's to those companies who
 surreptitiously use the pink ribbon and breast cancer awareness
 month to boost their sales and profits while donating very little
 to help fund breast cancer research, diagnosis, and treatment.
 That is the original meaning of the term hash-tagged above.

Mon Sep 28 08:27:54 CDT 2015    Two-thousand-dollar MacBook

Tue Sep  8 14:07:30 UTC 2015    Perpetually Snippy Co-workers

 Perpetually snippy co-workers that zero in on your every mistake,
 then make a building-wide production out of it.

Sun Sep  6 12:39:20 CDT 2015    Proud Parent Moment

 I remember someone mentioning he'd gone to the Eastbay Costco

 On this day in 1920, women achieved the right to vote in the US.

Fri Aug 21 12:05:59 CDT 2015    Ashley Madison incident.

 What people should be taking from this is that anything a person
 posts on "the Internet" should be considered as either public or
 can be made public at a moment's notice. Nothing is private.

Fri Jul 10 09:10:31 CDT 2015    25 years a conservationist

 I've always been ashamed that I didn't embrace conservation until
 I was twenty-nine years old because I might have made something
 more of a difference had I done so ten years earlier.

 These days, we are witness to a series of events that are almost
 too complex to try to explain to an American public that is
 thoroughly brainwashed by advertising and consumer culture.

Sat Jun 27 13:03:13 CDT 2015    #LoveWins

 The best advocates aren't always the law-makers, judges, or heads
 of state. Most of the time they are the everyday people you
 encounter who like you just the way you are.

Wed Jun 24 09:36:52 CDT 2015    Practice speech.

 If you should see or overhear me talking to myself, I'm practicing
 what to say in public.

Tue Jun 23 09:13:21 CDT 2015    Just be yourselves.

 It is universally inappropriate to assume or co-opt an ethnicity
 or socioeconomic class that isn't yours and to an underprivileged
 class or a minority, it's also very insulting. Please don't.

Mon Jun 22 14:29:09 CDT 2015    Comb-over Punks

 The best way to deal with a comb-over punk like Trump is not to
 give them any attention in the first place.

Sat Jun 20 18:38:28 CDT 2015    Spanish Town Historic District

 I remember when gas was less than a dollar a gallon and there were
 fewer cars in this neighborhood.

Mon Jun  8 16:08:38 CDT 2015    little old man cake

 When I'm in swimsuit shape for next summer, I'll be wearing one
 of those classic 1920's tank suits men wore that cover the chest.
 I want to be THE cutest little old man cake at the pool or on the

Mon Jun  1 09:39:01 CDT 2015    Dietetic Poetics

 I can now more easily move around, having taken off just those few
